Friday’s Reading List
By Taylor Marvin
What I read this week:
Micah Zenko argues that divining the motivations of the Boston bombers is futile.
Sarah Kendzior: “Despite the Tsarnaevs’ American upbringing, the media has presented their lives through a Chechen lens. Political strife in the North Caucasus… has become the default rationale for a domestic crime.”
Fars News tries to have it both ways: the US supports Salafis in Syria, but was attacked by Salafis in Boston.
Earlier this week I rounded up links for Political Violence @ a Glance.
