ICTS was also in charge of security at Schiphol airport (Amsterdam) where Richard Reid, the "shoe bomber" caught his plane just 2 months after 9-11.

Yeah, let's blame everyone except the people that actually strap bombs on themselves.  That makes sense.

The point is who strapped the bomb to whom and why was he allowed to get through security. It may have been detonated by cell phone, as all cell phones were jammed at Moscow airports just after this bomb exploded.  

So far, no-one has claimed responsibility (jihadists have a habit of proudly claiming their "martyrdom" operations).

You're grasping at straws here.  Do you have any understanding at all of the chechen conflict?

Chechen terr.orists are safely housed in London and supported by Washington, as even the Russian mainstream media says.

So far, however, no suspect has been identified- so if you have any information, please provide it (unsubstantiated rumour notwithstanding).

Washington hasn't supported chechens for some time now.  If one good thing came out of the war on terror, it's the ending of this policy of using religious fanatics to destabilize our foes.  We have the same enemy. The west is to blame for supporting these extremists since the soviet-afghan war.  There would be no war on terror now if we hadn't adopted this dangerous policy.  But supporting monsters does not absolve the monsters themselves of guilt.  I'm proud that the US has turned around and is trying to right the wrongs of the past when it comes to russia.  What we did was wrong, it's out of control, and now it's our responsibility to clean up the mess.

A newspaper close to Russia's FSB security service published what it claimed was a warning to Moscow police issued in December that said there was credible intelligence that a suicide squad made up of three women and one man from Chechnya was headed to Moscow.
The memo said the team had spent time in Pakistan and Iran and that one of the women had a relative with a flat in Moscow that might be used as a bomb making factory. Another group of five Islamist militants trained in Pakistan was also expected to cross into Russia soon, it added.

An al-Qaeda linked website said that the group Islamic Caucasus Emirate, led by the rebe Doku Umarov, was poised to claim it had staged the attack. It said that Russia's harsh military measures against independence activists in the Caucasus had provoked the attack. It said: "You disbelievers are the firewood of Hell. You will enter it."

The daily Kommersant newspaper said security service officials were alerted to the extent of the threat when a woman accidentally blew herself up on New Year's Eve in Moscow. It later emerged that her husband was in jail for being a member of an Islamist terror group and that she and a girlfriend had been sent to Moscow from the internal Muslim republic of Dagestan to commit an act of terror.

Russian media published a grisly picture of the male terrorist's severed head that was being circulated around police and security services in the troubled mostly Muslim North Caucasus region to see if anyone recognised him.
