"Kavkaz Center, a Chechen extremist website has been funded by Finland's Foreign Ministry and the US State Department, Finnish prosecutors revealed during a probe into the activities of the site's owner Mikael Storsjo. Recently, a court in Helsinki handed down a four-month suspended sentence to Storsjo for assisting Chechen terrorists to enter Finland illegally. "
Dr. Brian Glyn Williams (CIA/Jamestown Foundation) recommends Kavkaz for a "view into their world."
A quick click over to Kavkaz Center (5/20/13) produces this lovely story:
Two blasts in Dagestan killed and injured more than 50 puppets
[21:56] Russian invaders reported that 2 blasts went off within an interval of 15 minutes in Shamilkala, the capital the Caucasus Emirate's Province of Dagestan"
Car Bombing by KavKaz Center, 5/20/13
One must infer that the above is the good kind of terrorism in Mr. Brian Glyn Williams' view. While Williams vehemently denies any connection between the Chechens and the Saudi Wahabbis, the Chechen commanders themselves may see it differently:
"Last year, a charismatic rebel commander calling himself Said Buryatsky bragged on the rebel website Kavkaz Center he was training new suicide bombers.

An ethnic Russian convert to Islam, Buryastky, born Alexander Tikhomirov, studied for several years in Saudi Arabia.
"A new leader, Dokka Umarov , emerged declaring the new goal was to separate all six Muslim majority provinces in the Russian Caucasus from the Russian Federation, and create a new Islamic state ruled by Sharia law.
Admired for his Saudi religious education Buryatsky quickly became Umarov's chief ideologist. He also became a valued military strategist."

Brian Glyn Williams then tells HuffPost readers, "It seems that the older Tamerlan then converted his brother Dzhokar to the fanatical cause""
Ah. But, here is where we must insist on a full disclosure from Mr. Brian Glyn Williams. You see it is Williams' own personal relationship with Dzhokar Tsarnaev, over several years and via numerous email communications concerning the younger Tsarnaev's Chechen heritage, that alerted me to this topic in the first place.
"I hope I didn't contribute to it. That kid and his brother identified with the Chechen struggle."

Williams is identified as "Dr. Brian Glyn Williams" and no mention of his CIA or Jamestown Foundation connections appears in the article. What does appear however demands some scrutiny. Williams hooked up with Dzhokar Tsarnaev when the latter was still in high school and 17 years old, according to South Coast Today reporter Steve Urbon:
"Williams, whose classes on the War on Terror are routinely packed, obliged by exchanging emails with the then-17-year-old student [Dzhokar]].
"As Williams put it, an ancient civilization was being wiped away.
"Williams shot me an email. I phoned him and at one point I heard a rare twinge of worry in his voice. "I hope I didn't contribute to it."
