The killer shot Nemtsov meters from the Kremlin, in what can only be described as pure Hollywood. The timing and location suggests that a strictly personal motive seems unlikely. Would anyone kill a guy 200 meters from Red Square?
The murder speaks symbolism.
- A stolen car with Ingush plates ( located in the North Caucasus region). A warning of trouble to come in the Caucasus?
- The creation of a martyr and shrine in Red Square? A message to Putin that we can get to anyone, anywhere.
- Boris Nemtsov? Make a martyr of a very minor political player. Opposition blogger Navalny can now, solely, assume the mantle of America’s chosen regime change “golden boy”.
More questions than answers. One things for sure…contrary to the dumb dumb western main stream media, Putin had negative zero to gain form this. Only a truly brain challenged individual can not see that.
Which is why we turn to either Ukraine nazis, Chechnya terrorists, or the United States of America.
Sputnik News Agency reports…
US spy agencies were not behind the killing of Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov and do not know who was responsible, US director of national intelligence James Clapper said on Monday.
“I don’t know. We don’t know. We don’t have any unique insight as to who did this,” Clapper told the Council on Foreign Relations, a New York think tank, Monday.
Clapper added that the anti-US allegations were made to “create discontent in the political fabric of Russia.”
Nemtsov was gunned down in Moscow at 11:40 p.m. last Friday (20:40 GMT), after four shots were fired in his back while he was walking with a female companion across the Zamoskvoretsky Bridge, according to the Russian Interior Ministry.
The US official is saying that blaming US spy agencies for the murder or Boris Nemtsov is meant to discredit America, while America continues to blame Vladimir Putin personally for the murder, which is fair game and strikes no one as a bit hypocritical.
