Russia alerted US repeatedly about suspect, senators say (planned to go to NYC next)
Boston Globe ^ | April 24, 2013 | Bryan Bender, Noah Bierman, Mark Arsenault and Kevin Cullen

Russian authorities contacted the US government with concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev not once but “multiple’’ times, including an alert it sent after he was first investigated by FBI agents in Boston, raising new questions about whether the FBI should have paid more attention to the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, US senators briefed on the inves­tigation said Tuesday.

The FBI has previously said it interviewed Tsarnaev in early 2011 after it was initially contacted by the ­Russians. In their review, completed in summer 2011, the bureau found no ­evidence that Tsarnaev was a threat. “The FBI requested but did not receive more specific or additional information from” Russia, the agency said last week.

Following a closed briefing of the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, Senator Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, said he believed that Russia alerted the United States about Tsarnaev in “multiple contacts,” including at least once since October 2011.

The details came amid revelations that the brothers may have planned to escape to New York last week with a car full of bombs, according to a senior law enforce­ment official. “We just killed a cop. We blew up the Marathon. And now we’re going to New York. Don’t [expletive] with us,” Tamerlan told a witness, the official said.

This seems to be getting lost among all the other news reports on the bombing. This is major. It was reported on Russian TV and other foreign outlets last Sunday and has FINALLY reached the U.S. media!

It is what it is. You take, care and have a great upcoming day.

Now that Glenn Beck has done some legwork on it, it should get more attention, but probably won’t. I overhear people saying things like “It was violence, but not terror,” and “home-grown,” etc. The media have succeeded in branding this and now everyone seems tired of the story. Besides, a physical act like the bombing always will get more attention that the root causes. Oh well, I’ve been off the computer for a while, so maybe time to catch up and see if the vista has improved.

Anything that gets legs worthwile will always get shut down one way or another...usually media blocks it out.

CNN cut off the Bush Library Feed with all four Presidents present..to announce that Hagel confirmed Syria used Chemical weapons....as if we didn’t know this already...yet it was bannered “Breaking News”......

Glen Becks the enemy in their eyes...they won’t coddle to him.

Leftists would rather watch the legs get blown off their children than abandon political correctness.

I would have to agree with your evaluation as to the total abandonment of common sense the Lord instils into the human species's minds.
Perhaps simply calling them complete idiots is more appropriate. Welcome to Free Republic. May your stay be informative as well as pleasant.
