Action star Steven Seagal went along on a diplomatic mission to Chechnya with six senators hoping to gather information on the Boston Marathon attacks.
The group included Rep. Michele Bachmann and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, and was intended as a fact-finding mission to the Northern Caucus, since bombing suspects Dzhokhar and the late Tamerlan Tsarnaev were ethnic Chechens from nearby Dagestan.
At a press conference in Moscow, Rohrabacher, a congressman from California, said there was nothing specifically that the delegation uncovered that could have prevented the attack. “Radical Islam is at our throat in the United States, and is at the throat of the Russian people," he said.
