FBI failed after Tamerlan Tsarnaev 2011 warning and trip to Dagestan, Tsarnaev green card, Russia Security Service warning possible Islamist radical, Tamerlan not put on no fly list

” the FBI reviewed its records and determined that in early 2011, a foreign government asked the FBI for information about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The request stated that it was based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United States for travel to the country’s region to join unspecified underground groups.”…FBI press release April 19, 2013

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, unlike his brother Dzhokhar, had a green card and was not a US citizen.

From the Chicago Tribune April 21, 2013.

“FBI’s handling of Boston suspect comes under scrutiny”

“U.S. lawmakers asked on Sunday why the FBI had failed to spot the danger from one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, and they complained it was one of a series of cases in which someone the agency had investigated had later taken part in attacks.

House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul wrote to the FBI and other officials asking why Tamerlan Tsarnaev did not raise suspicions after Russia asked the bureau to investigate him two years ago.

“Because if he was on the radar and they let him go, he’s on the Russians’ radar, why wasn’t a flag put on him, some sort of customs flag?,” McCaul, a Texas Republican, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program. “And I’d like to know what intelligence Russia has on him as well.”

The FBI interviewed Tsarnaev, the elder of two ethnic Chechen brothers suspected in the Boston bombing, in 2011 shortly after Russia’s Federal Security Service asked the agency to look into him as a possible Islamist radical who might soon travel to Russia.

Asked on Sunday about lawmakers’ concerns, the FBI said it had no further comment beyond a statement it issued on Friday night when it said it “did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign” after speaking to Tsarnaev and checking his travel records and Internet activity.

Less than a year after the FBI interview, Tsarnaev did in fact travel to the volatile Dagestan region of southern Russia on a six-month trip out of the United States. Much of what Tsarnaev did on that trip is still a mystery to U.S. investigators.

Neighbors contacted by Reuters say Tsarnaev spent at least a few weeks in Dagestan, a predominantly Muslim region in the North Caucasus mountains where Islamist militants have long been a thorn in the side of governments in Moscow.

Republican Representative Peter King of New York told “Fox News Sunday” he wondered why the FBI did not take more action after Tsarnaev returned to the United States last year and put statements on his website “talking about radical imams.””

“One U.S. counterterrorism official urged perspective. “If we thoroughly investigated every one of these terrorism tips we get, we’d never get anything done,” he said.

A senior U.S. law enforcement source said that the number of tips received from Russian intelligence to the FBI each year is “not that many.”

But nationally, he said, the FBI receives at least 100 terrorism tips a day – from the public, local and state law enforcement, other federal agencies and the intelligence community.”

“The 26-year-old “appears to be the fifth person since September 11, 2001, to participate in terror attacks despite being under investigation by the FBI,” the pair said in a joint letter.”

    Hey All,

    Just a couple observations, but to me after the older brother was investigated two years ago, I’m wondering if maybe he wasn’t prodded to cause some kind of disturbance, and then it got out of hand.

    To me it’s pretty sad that I think this way, but history is that the FBI “encourages” these “radicals” to do something, and then once the seed is planted, the FBI gives them the means to conduct the disturbance and then swoops in to save the day.

    Now I have some idea as to how the FBI comes in to contact with these radicals.

    The second thing is,

    Has anyone read an autopsy report on Chris Stevens?

    Didn’t think so, and I wonder why? I think we should know what caused the death of the first Ambassador killed in decades, and what his injuries were.

    Why won’t this “transparent” release the autopsy of our dead Ambassador?

  2. Interested Bystander

    Of course I should have written “transparent” administration.

    From Canada Free Press April 17, 2013.

    “Boston-like bomb plans published by al Qaeda”
    “A bomb-making manual, written in Arabic and published less than two months ago, made its rounds on sites used by Muslim terrorists worldwide. The manual provides specific instructions on the best methods of packaging a bomb using a pressure cooker. Previously, the English language Muslim terrorist magazine published under the name Inspire carried similar instructions, although the instructions contained within this newest manual appear to be far more advanced by comparison.”


    Free Speech | April 21, 2013 at 8:04 pm |

    The first question that comes to mind is since the Tsarnaev Brothers did not speak or read Arabic who made the bombs that they used?

    Most likely suspect is Al Harbi which would explain why he reeked of gun powder when he was tackled at the scene by the good American Patriot who identified him as a Terrorist.

  4. http://www.debka.com/article/22914/The-Tsarnaev-brothers-were-double-agents-who-decoyed-US-into-terror-trap

    The conclusion reached by debkafile’s counterterrorism and intelligence sources is that the brothers were double agents, hired by US and Saudi intelligence to penetrate the Wahhabi jihadist networks which, helped by Saudi financial institutions, had spread across the restive Russian Caucasian.

    Instead, the two former Chechens betrayed their mission and went secretly over to the radical Islamist networks.

    “Top it all off with an administration continually abusing the public for the sake of enlarging and consolidating its political power – for instance, by purposely making the “sequester” cuts hurt Americans, even our active-duty soldiers, as much as possible.

    Make no mistake: This sort of stress on Americans is not only intentional on the part of Team Obama – it is strategic. Remember, these people are revolutionaries (that is, engaged in “bringing about a major or fundamental change,” as Merriam-Webster puts it) and utterly committed to replacing one societal structure – America’s constitutional, limited-government, free-enterprise system – with another – a socialist, wealth-redistributionist system run by an all-powerful government.

    Such a radical change cannot be accomplished while Americans are calm, happy, content and grateful for their blessings. Citizens must be unhappy and stressed out. Indeed, widespread popular discontent has always been the required fuel for leftist transformation.”

    Obama Administration Bans the Truth About Islam and Jihad
    New Gingrich: Obama Administration “So Pro-Islamic That It Can’t Even Tell the Truth About People Trying to Kill Us”

    “There’s something sick about an administration which is so pro-Islamic that it can’t even tell the truth about the people who are trying to kill us,” Mr. Gingrich said to applause from a crowd in a small airport hangar here. Mr. Gingrich accused the White House of being unwilling to discuss threats from some Muslims. And he slammed President Barack Obama for mounting a “war” on the Catholic Church over contraception but apologize to Afghan President Hamid Karzai over the burning of Qurans.


  7. http://p.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/apr/21/former-fbi-agent-predicts-more-attacks-in-muslim-j/

    John Guandolo, a former counterterrorism agent, posted a Web report over the weekend pointing out that the Boston Marathon attack is not an aberration but one in a string of foiled and executed assaults on American soil by self-described jihadists.

    More attacks are to be expected, he said, even as the mainstream media and President Obama say they are having trouble explaining why two Muslim brothers carried out the twin bombings that killed three and injured more than 170.

    “It is truly astounding to watch newscasters continue to ask the question ‘WHY?’” wrote Mr. Guandolo, who runs the website Understanding the Threat to America.

    “Why did they do this? What will it take for the U.S. media and American leadership to face the reality of the imposing danger breathing down our necks the global Islamic Movement,” Mr. Guandolo wrote. “These men did this because they are commanded to. The global jihad is on.”

  8. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/04/21/key-congressmen-requests-classified-briefing-on-saudi-person-of-interest-in-boston-bombing/

    The House Committee on Homeland Security on Sunday emailed TheBlaze a copy of their request to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for more information on the Saudi national originally described as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing.

    The Saudi national — originally identified as Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi — has been the topic of fierce debate in recent days, after he was reportedly set to be deported under section 212 3B of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) – “Security and related grounds” – “Terrorist activities,” after the bombing.

    The story gained a curious twist when, after it gained more traction, President & Chief Content Officer for TheBlaze Joel Cheatwood received word from one of his investigative reporters that “there is now discussion that they may not allow this man to be deported.”

    When Napolitano was asked about the issue by South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan last week, she said his question was “so full of misstatements and misapprehension that it’s just not worthy of an answer.”

    ICE sources later told TheBlaze that a separate Saudi national was in custody, and that he is “in no way affiliated” with the Boston attacks.

    Now, the House Committee on Homeland Security wants some answers.

  9. CitizenWells,
    I posting this asking for input to a question.

    Why do the brother bombers have expensive cars and shoes/clothing when neither of them had a job?

    Does that mean they were ‘funded’? If they were funded by outside entities that money should be tracked. If they were on ‘government assistance’ that that should be verifiable. Did taxpayer dollars, and/or foreign money supply these two with the means and the time to commit these crimes. We need people asking the question everywhere, need answers to the source of the money. A famous democratic pundit once said “Follow the Money”.


  10. citizenwells

    Pete, in reading through all of the tweets of the younger brother, he had a job at one time.
    I do believe that the older brother was funded & trained based on the look like a duck principle.


  12. wow……lots of criminal type stuff in part two….let’s see how far it goes….

  13. The notion that bo is pro-Iran is nonsense. bo is planning to attack shite Iran and is funding Al Qaeda jihadists in Syria, an ally of Iran.


    Responding to the Syrian development, Pentagon spokesman George Little, who arrived in Amman Tuesday with the US Defense Secretary, commented: “The Pentagon is continuing to assess reports on the matter and the use of such weapons would be entirely unacceptable.”

    For some months, debkafile has been reporting that Iran had trampled over Netanyahu’s red lines for its nuclear program and moved on. On March 19th debkafile’s sources confirmed the finding of concrete evidence that the Syrian army had launched chemical warfare against rebel forces.
