Confusion and accusations follow the deadly explosion at a Moscow airport on Monday. Possibly two suicide bombers, a man and a woman, detonated explosive devices inside Domodedovo Airport, killing 35 people and injuring more than 100. However, witness accounts had conflicting details.

In the midst of the confusion over how the bomb went off, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has said the airport's managers should be held accountable for security lapses. The managers said the police needed to provide more security.

The state-sponsored news organization Russia Today suggested that some of the blame for the suicide attack could be placed on the American video game "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2." Robert Mackey at the New York Times' Lede blog says the video game allows players to participate in a terrorist attack at a Russian airport.

The bombing follows nearly 15 years of terrorist attacks in Russia, almost one every year.

Russia Today released CCTV video of the moment of the explosion:

The head of the terrorist snake is Iran, whom Putin plays "footsies" with. They, in turn, are playing him for a fool and laughing at him behind his back, as they prepare, through their surrogates, for the next strike.
