I wonder if this story is in any way related to the story of the information of some US schools were found on a computer disk in Iraq? One of the schools that was on the disk is in my town. The info in the article of the Macon Telegraph said that it included blueprint information, bus routes, etc on that disk. The principal of the school sent a letter to all parents telling them not to worry blah blah...but be on the lookout for static surveillance. A large amount of police have been stationed at the school for the last week or so.

This doesn't make any sense the Chechans would gain nothing attacking the US. All it would do would be to allow Putin even less international scrutiny when dealing with Chechnya. Wait.... maybe it's a Russian operation.
My question is Can the normal Chechen pass as an American (non muslim)?

Since the 911 hijackers had absolutely no problem passing as regular folk this seems to be a non-issue. Also, er, chechynans are from the caucus region no? They're, literally, caucasians no?

No reason publically known that is. There may be a reason, or not. What reason more do they need than being told they cannot do something.
Sounds like more scare tactics propaganda, which I hope it is. If for some reason the info is true, the election/s might have something to do with it.
Timing is everything is it not.

I don't think you would have to worry about them though, they would have no reason to launch an attack in America.
