  •  The cause for concern wasn't so much that Chechens (6+ / 0-)

    hated Americans, but rather the acknowledgement that Chechens are a light-skinned population of Muslims that are more resistant to visual profiling than Arabs. So they were viewed as ideal recruits by AQ who could "fly below the radar."  The same could be said for Bosnians and Kosovars, but after UN/US interventions against Serbia it would be much harder to recruit them against the US due to their favorable opinions of Americans.  Chechens on the other hand are a war torn people much easier to radicalize.
