Skip to comments.Putin says Russia had nothing to offer on Tsarnaev brothers

President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that, to our great regret, Russian security services lacked any operative information on the Tsarnaev brothers that they could have shared with their American counterparts.
Russian officials had raised concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev with the FBI in 2011 and later that year also with the CIA. But analysts here doubt that Russias Federal Security Service (FSB) was warning the Americans; more likely, they say, it was acting out of worry that Tsarnaev might join an underground group in the strife-torn Russian region of Dagestan during a visit there.
The FSB did not respond when the FBI asked for more details about him, U.S. officials said.

I believe him/s
The FBI and CIA are playing the blame game. The bus is picking up speed. Who is under it? Who is leaking. This is a battle.
What have the Saudi’s shared? This is the question to ask.
Yes, but the war is between the CIA and the State Department's unofficial CIA.
Didn’t Obama thank the Russians for info on the bombers?
This is Putin calling him an idiot liar.
Remember - Vlad’s got to keep 0 out of trouble so that 0 remains ‘flexible’...
What the hell is Putin talking about? its already been confirmed Russian warned usa many times about tamerlan.
Good point. Either Barry is a clueless moron or Putin is a liar. I’m going with the former.
I’m sure Putin is reveling in having Obama squirm because of successive US administrations who have alternatively condemned Russia, or provided safe haven for the Chechnyan Islamic psychopaths, in Russia’s war with these psychos.
The attack wasn’t against Russia, maybe they would just rather lay low, not claim to have done any invasive investigation -not temped provoke retribution from other Chechens.
Putin is covering for JugEars to get JugEars more indebted to him. Look at all JugEars has done for Russia, removing missile shields and more. And still our idiots re-elected him, not that they knew jack about how JugEars has sold us out to Russia and others. Not that they care either in this age of idiocracy
