The CIA pushed to have one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers placed on a U.S. counterterrorism watch list more than a year before the attacks, U.S. officials said Wednesday.
Russian authorities contacted the CIA in the fall of 2011 and raised concerns that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed last week in a confrontation with police, was seen as an increasingly radical Islamist who could be planning to travel overseas.

No story here. Just move along. Political correctness trumps lives lost. Why do we have these agencies if the information they find is ignored, on purpose? Who’s side are the feds on? Ours, or theirs?
Was that CIA — or CYA?
Just think of all the money we are spending in all these departments to keep two goofs with the mind of a teen from killing us. What is not said is how many of these people that are out there.
The only government that could do good would be one that only used voluntary workers and created its own wealth to redistribute. Every single government agency has made every single problem they were meant to solve, worse. Every single nation that decided to expand government has eventually collapsed under its weight.
What we need to do is to change government from a negative force into a positive force.
Our government will be a negative force as long as it’s headed by a Satan-worshipping muslim. God will not bless a country that elects muslims.
You have a point about the religious overtones there. Was not even thinking about that. Just being purely neutral analytical and thinking monetary, civil law, human rights, freedom of speech, freedom of press, etc.. It apparently applies to just about every thing the government has gotten involved with. What a coincidence.
But I specifically remember right after 911 therewas a meeting and it was decided that these police agencies would all work together to see that this didn’t happen again.
I vaguely remember some Cu— err lady headed that meeting.
Can’t remember the —errrr ladies name.
They had an unarmed, scared, wounded teenage boy totally surrounded by the top crack paramilitary police.
The FBI, DHS, ATF, Local Police, State Troopers and even University Police had their weapons trained on the punk.
Then he just got into a car and drove away and they could not find him...
A CITIZEN found him. Outside of their perimeter.
"Which way did he go, which way did he go?"
