In what might be an attempt to quell the fears of guests at the World Cup in Moscow, Russian press has described an apparent car attack by a Kyrgyzstani national that injured eight as a “tragic accident.”
But video of the incident tells a different story:
Police have released an interrogation tape in which the cabbie claims that he tried to brake in order to let a pedestrian cross the street, but pressed the gas pedal instead, accelerating into the crowd. The driver claims that he was tired after 20 straight hours of work, which caused the error.
But the video clearly shows that there was no pedestrian in the street for the driver to avoid. It also shows the cabbie running from the vehicle after plowing through the crowd. He claimed that he was afraid of “being killed” after the incident.
Some of Russia’s state media has ignored the story altogether.
Terror group ISIS has threatened the 2018 World Cup as a potential target several times. Big League Politics reported in April:
“A second poster recently released by Wafa shows a jihadist with an AK-47 emerging from an explosion in a soccer stadium:
‘Putin, you disbeliever,’ the poster says. ‘You will pay the price for killing Muslims.’
Wafa is likely referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s alliance with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who has focused on driving ISIS out of Syria”

“We don’t know what happened and just because this guy is from Kyrgyzstan does not mean he is a terrorist,” said Mark Galeotti, a security expert. “But we also know that we can’t trust the official Russian line.”
Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
