Well here’s something you don’t see everyday. A Russian President and a washed up Hollywood actor who is also somehow a legalized officer of the law joining forces to investigate the Boston Marathon bombing and help thwart terrorism.
Here is what ABCNews had to say about the situation:
The former action film hero has apparently developed a web of high level contacts in Russia, which he tapped into for a visiting delegation of American lawmakers who came, in part, to investigate April’s Boston marathon bombing. One suspect in that bombing, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, spent six months last year in Dagestan, a restive region in southern Russia. The meetings, it appears, yielded little new information about the Boston suspect and no smoking gun to suggest an intelligence failure. ”There is nothing specific that could’ve been done that we can point to that, had it been done differently, would’ve prevent this,” said Rep Dana Rohrabacher, the Republican from California who led the delegation. But Rohrabacher, who said he has known Seagal for “a number of years” and said the two had often discussed “thwarting radical Islamic terrorism,” repeatedly praised the actor for “going out of his way” to set up meetings for the delegation in Russia. “We are very appreciative of the help he has given this congressional delegation to make sure we accomplished our mission,” Rohrabacher said.
As long as it doesn’t end up worse than Half Past Dead, Attack Force or The Glimmer Man, I’d say this is a decent partnership for America and the Motherland. And yes it’s safe to say those movies were more of a disaster than Chernobyl.
