WASHINGTON (AP) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Tuesday that her agency knew of alleged Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev's trip to Russia last year even though his name was misspelled on a travel document. A key lawmaker had said that the misspelling caused the FBI to miss the trip....

I’ve been saying all along....this was a sting gone bad...and the way I see it....there are definitely other players.
That is why they bought all those bullets! /sarc
Well, that wouldn’t be the first terrorist attack to go off with the FBI knowing who was in the country, or staying at one of their assets rental houses.
You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs . . .
DHS may have known of the trip because Tamerlan admitted it when he appeared before Immigration and Customs inspectors at the port of entry on his re-entry to the US. Such a long absence is suspicious in and of itself for any green card holder, but apparently the DHS quietly re-admitted him to the US without any further action.
This is life under Big Sis the frat girl.
WWADD? (What Would Able Danger Do?)
Obama is at the heart of this...believe it.
FBI you are about to be throw under the bus unless you get out in front of this,DHS is saying you are idiots. They knew you didn’t , Get a clue and go on the offense.
Younger FReepers might like to know that L.H. Oswald later went on to become the lone assassin of President JF Kennedy.

Accountability? Will any heads roll over this? NO!
So the ‘See Something, Say Something’ meme does not apply to Big Sis? These people think everyone is stupid and their supporters in the media certainly are.
It's interesting that they don't name the key numbnut who said that.
Security Features of an American Passport
Many people think their passport photo is nothing short of a cruel and unusual joke, but it is actually a security feature. While these photos tend to be unflattering, they do serve the purpose of letting passport agents know that you are who you claim to be. It is one of the simpler elements of the U.S. passport, but it may be the most important. It is the only way for agents to properly identify you. To avoid travel delays, you should have an updated passport with a current photo. A picture that no longer looks like you can cause unnecessary delays as you pass through customs.
Sophisticated artwork is applied during the printing of your U.S. passport, making forgery difficult. Guilloche techniques, which are very intricate designs that are difficult to reproduce, are used on every page of your passport, and are used to produce the "USA" logo above your picture.
Varying Security Elements
Take one look through the pages of your passport, and you'll notice that each page is different. Every page has a different design inspired by the country's history, a different guilloche pattern and a different inspirational quote. The varied elements are another security feature that makes your passport difficult to reproduce.
Each U.S. passport features holographic images. If you hold the first page of your passport at a certain angle, you will notice images and text that were not obvious before. These images cannot be reproduced by a standard printer, therefore making the passport difficult to forge.
Ultraviolet and Fluorescent Light Verification Features
One of the safety features of your passport cannot be seen with the naked eye. These images and text must be viewed under special ultraviolet or fluorescent lighting.
Every passport issued since August 2007 is considered an e-passport, which means it includes a small data chip that contains the holder's name, birth date and other identifying information. At designated international check-points, the data is read through biometric facial recognition identification methods. Each chip has a digital signature to protect the sensitive information it stores.
I wonder if key lawmaker can spell 'stupid?'
Mueller is a democrat company man...he will gladly take the fall and retire to his Soros paid vacation villa in the south do France.
months later, an FBI alert on him had expired and so his re-entry was not noted.
FBI she is blaming you.
Bump for the truth!
What’s worse? They spelled name differently, and missed him, or they didn’t track him when he got back?
Yes great find, that was as bad as the suspect in custody who they said was mixed up with another Saudi with the same name and alien number. Oh wait that not it it was another guy buying dates at the port.
FBI pick up the white phone, you are being hosed.
