I Don't Think Bill Kristol Understands Just How Good Russia Is With Poisons

Bill Kristol is actually blaming Russia for bringing the suicide bombings on themselves! I don't think Bill Kristol understands just how good Russia is with poisons (from Think Progress):

Earlier today, two “female suicide bombers set off huge explosions in two subway stations in central Moscow,” killing more than three dozen people. According to the New York Times, Russian officials suspect that the bombing near the offices of the successor to the Soviet-era K.G.B “was intended as a message to the security services, which have helped lead the crackdown on Islamic extremism in Chechnya and other parts of the Caucasus region in southern Russia.” On Bill Bennett’s radio show this morning, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, citing Russian policy in Chechnya, said that the Russians “in some ways have brought” the terrorism “on themselves”:

BENNETT: The Russians will be tougher than most countries on this stuff, right?

KRISTOL: Yeah, they’ve been pretty brutal in Chechnya and in some ways have brought this, I’ve got to say, on themselves. But, you know, the trouble is that people use legitimate grievances and of course become — a fair number of Chechens went to Afghanistan to fight against us and the Chechnyans were treated just horribly, have been treated horribly by the Russians. But obviously that’s no excuse for being a suicide bomber.
