Through a process of ‘re-en-framing’ events advocated by Žižek, S. (2014), this paper exposes ‘rogue’ representations of Chechen identity and lycanthropy. In first framing the ‘official’ narrative of the Boston Bombers, the paper proceeds from a critique of claims made in the Rolling Stone coverage of the event. The representations of Chechen identity that emerge from the magazine’s article are then re-framed through fin de siècle ‘Caucasaphobia’ and mytho-medievalising of the Chechen subject. In then returning to the Boston Bombing event it is through a critique of counter-insurgency/radicalisation theory that the biopolitical consequences of the event are set alongside the ‘werewolf trial’ of the surviving perpetrator.
