Many are wondering why the FBI overlooked the potential danger posed by now-deceased bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 after they interviewed him. According to reports, the bureau failed to find any incriminating evidence of terrorist ties.
"As first reported by CBS News correspondent Bob Orr, the FBI interviewed Tsarnaev, the elder brother of at-large bombing suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, at the request of a foreign government to see if he had any extremist ties, but failed to find any linkage."
"Both Tsarnaev brothers were legal permanent residents of the U.S. There is no evidence so far that either brother received any tactical training."
The FBI initially denied making contact with Tsarnaev, but his mother said to Russia Today that the FBI had in fact spoke with her son, saying he became involved with "religious politics" around five years ago. :
"They used to come [to our] home, they used to talk to me ... they were telling me that he was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him," Tsarnaeva said. "They told me whatever information he is getting, he gets from these extremist sites... they were controlling him, they were controlling his every step... and now they say that this is a terrorist act!"
The FBI insists to CBS that they took all the required steps that were permissable under the law. However, around the same time the bureau interviewed Tsarnaev, changes in the FBI training manual took place as well. The FBI's own departmental counter-terrorism analytic lexicon was purged of key words that could reference Islamic terrorism. Words like Muslim, Islam, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and sharia were not mentioned once in the FBI's counter-terrorism lexicon afterwards.

Did I miss any?
They had to remove all that language because some astute agent may have figured out that the biggest terrorist lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Bet if we waterboared the agents who talked to the perp he'd tell us if the guy was an Islamofascist
TREASON - continuous, in-your-face, agenda-driven, agency-abetted, representative-enabled, ongoing...
The FBI bends over backwards to ignore Islamic terrorism, and they’re still apparently baffled about the motive in the Ft. Hood shooting. It’s institutional incompetence.
When was this done? Is it agency wide? Under whose authorization?
the 14 page lexicon was published by the FBI on January 28, 2008
I think the cartoonist made a mistake; the actual roles of the fake president and whatsherface in the cartoon would fit better reversed.
Here's hoping that these "boy scouts" bow to the law of the Constitution when ordered to come after the People....
If an FBI agent uses the words “terrorist” and “Muslim” in the same report it’s a considered profiling -career ender under the Obama Administration.
They’d sooner focus on returning Veterans and Tea Party types - naturally there is no limit on the potential innuendo and it will be rewarded. That’s how you write your own ticket, that’s how you get promoted.
