A new storm cloud may be on the horizon for President Obama over evidence that Moscow may have coaxed Georgian nationals into planting a bomb outside the U.S. embassy in Georgia's capital of Tbilisi, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
The bomb detonated but caused no damage near the embassy in the attack in September.
Georgia's Interior Ministry apprehended six Georgians who are internally displaced persons from the Georgian breakaway province of Abkhazia. Two other perpetrators remain at large, believed to have escaped to Gali in Abkhazia following the bombing.
The majority of the population in the Abkhazian region of Gali are Georgian. Due to ethnic cleansing that has taken place over the years in Abkhazia, the once majority of Georgians in that breakaway province have been relegated primarily to Abkhazia's southwestern region of Gali.
Russia gained effective control over Abkhazia following its invasion of Georgia in August 2008 and the defeat of the U.S. trained and equipped Georgian armed forces.
The U.S. State Department has sent investigators to Georgia where a meeting is scheduled with Georgian investigators.
Georgian Interior Ministry officials say that the alleged bombers have made videotaped confessions and claim that Russian Maj. Yevgeniy Borisov was behind the bombing of the U.S. embassy and a series of other bombings in Tbilisi that followed in the ensuing months.
