Report: Foreign Gov't Asked FBI to Look at Boston Terror Suspect for 'Extremist Ties' in 2011
The Blaze ^ | 4/19/13 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 04/19/2013 4:30:49 PM PDT by Nachum

A “foreign government” asked the FBI to look into one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect’s “possibly extremist ties” in 2011, CBS News reported on Friday. The FBI complied and spoke with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, to investigate any possible ties to extremism.

The FBI determined Tsarnaev represented no threat, according to CBS News.

Tamerlan, believed to be 26 when he was killed overnight in a shootout, dropped out after studying accounting at Bunker Hill Community College for just three semesters. He was an amateur boxer who had hoped to fight on the U.S. Olympic team, a man who said he had no American friends.

“I don’t have a single American friend. I don’t understand them.” he was quoted as saying in a photo package that appeared in a Boston University student magazine in 2010.

He identified himself then as a Muslim and said he did not drink or smoke: “God said no alcohol.” He said he hoped to fight for the U.S. Olympic team and become a naturalized American. He said he was studying to become an engineer before he dropped out.

More recently, Tamerlan – married, with a young daughter – became a more devout Muslim, according to his aunt, Maret Tsarnaeva. She told reporters outside her Toronto home Friday that the older brother had taken to praying five times a day.

The cops have all done a remarkable job...
of screwing up everything they possibly could.

Figures, a citizen found him.

The cops let him just get in a car and drive away. Despite the fact that they all
showed up with their very best body armor, matching paramilitary garb, leather
holsters, automatic weapons, urban tanks, helicopters with FLIR...

Too often good intel turns to $h!+ when it hits the analyst’s desk. It is all about the assumptions leadership says to make about possibly questionable associations and behaviors.

See this?

How the Boston Bombing Suspect Became a U.S. Citizen

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev got a green card in 2007, and became a naturalized United States citizen on Sept. 11, 2012, officials said. Tamerlan was denied citizenship after he was involved in a domestic-violence episode, his father said.

They can't explain themselves.

That's why this whole thing is going to be sent to Benghazi. The media is going to try to scrub this from the public mind just as soon as they can.

The elites are going to crank the "bread and circuses" knob to the right just as hard as they can. I wouldn't think it would work, but millions of New York City voters voted for Obama and hate Bush, even though they see their WTC-free skyline every day.

They see a skyline altered for the pleasure of muslims every day, but vote for a guy who's letting them in by the hundreds of thousands.

Beck reported that he fed info of explosive nature to all major news orgs so they would release it, because the news needed to come from a “credible” news source.....that alone blows me away. Beck gave them to Monday to release the story or he would and that these news orgs refused to release. I suspect this IS that story.

HOMELAND SECURITY MASSIVE FAIL

This one won’t be as easy as Benghazi for the administration to cover up.

Napolitano and Obama will be wishing they had bought some 55 gallon barrels of whitewash along with those 1.2 billion rounds of ammo and the 2,700 MRAP armored vehicles.

Are these guys who do 20 in the military and retire, 20 as local cops and retire, and then get in the FBI?

Perhaps. But the FBI might be one of the only independent agencies not controlled by Obama. Their intel is limited, but they might be doing the best they can under the circumstances.

Mueller is a solid guy...not in the pocket of Obama.

I don't get daily reports from the FBI...but I know that Mueller is not an Obama guy.

And, considering the alternative (of having a Muslim as head of the FBI), that's good enough for me.

I would rather have an incompetent running the FBI than a muslim convert like Brennan.

They always do...they missed the guy hiding in the boat, they didn’t connect the MIT shooting with the bombers, they didn’t see a bombing coming even though there were several reports of bombs going off in the countryside in the weeks leading up to the event.

They missed the underwear bomber even though his dad called and told them his son was going to pull something. They missed Richard Reid, they missed 9/11, they missed the 93 bombing, they missed OKC...

they wouldn’t have found these two if the guy that lost two legs hadn’t called from the emergency room and told them which one was involved...

yet we still continue to purchase millions of dollars in technology and battering rams for our police in the name of safety.

Exactly! I predicted this thing would be Benghazied and over in less than a week once the kid is caught its through. Don't forget while the chaos ensues the Senate is doing amnesty while the entire country is diverted,some coincidence.

If amnesty passes with the regime getting five years to get border security right its over for us. If this story lives it will be because we keep it and Benghazi alive.

We need to find out why the FBI let these clowns into the US.

You will not find anything in English.

But, an ex-FBI agent says so.
Brennan has referenced al Quds specifically, in public
He has said Islam is beautiful
He testified that ‘jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam.’
He has said that Islam is peace.

He equivocates. He confuses. And he is well-placed, isn’t he.

Look to that speech that Brennan gave in Arabic. He, in Arabic, said "if Allah wills" (i.e. "in shallah").

Folks who aren't muslim don't say that. And then he said, "please don't repeat this to non-muslims."

As you know, circumstantial evidence is enough to send a man/woman to the gas chamber. This is circumstantial evidence worth at least that.

If you need the actually video, I will go in search of it and provide you with the link.
