Mother Of Boston Bombing Suspects Says FBI Was In Contact With Her Son
Business Insider ^ | 4/19/2013 | Grace Wyler

Posted on 04/19/2013 3:35:23 PM PDT by Raebie

Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston bombing suspects Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, suggested Friday that the FBI had been surveilling her older son for several years prior to Monday's attack.

In an interview with Russia Today Friday, Tsarnaeva said that Tamerlan Tsarnaev got involved in "religious politics" five years ago, and that the FBI had previously contacted her about her son's activities.

"He was controlled by the FBI, like for three, five years," she said. "They knew what my son was doing, they knew what actions and what sites on the Internet he was going [to], they used to come...and talk to me...they were telling me that he was really a serious leader and they were afraid of him."

Tamerlan visited the old country recently for six months (jihad school?). Reportedly, he attracted the notice of the FSB, and they requested a report on him from the FBI, which was delivered.

Lots of people on this thread trying to deodorize a turd.

My only questions here are how big the turd is and who left it.

Probably more like used as a convenientc diversion from the Saudi Royal family member that was related to the prince that paid for 0’s college that the let go. 0’s hoping his dumbing down of the liberal crowd has paid off and that they don’t put 2 and 2 together

I heard the older one/ grease spot/ was home in Chechnya for 6 months last year. For training, I assume.
++++++++++
I heard Moscow. Do we now have information that he traveled on to Chechnya? In any case you are certainly right about the training.

> She lost all credibility when she said they were set up. Were they set up with the pressure cooker bombs they threw at police, the IEDs lying on the roadway all over the Boston area, or the shots fired from long automatic rifles they were firing at the police?

This outrageous BS.

You’re forgetting one thing. This is Obama’s America and he is a grand deceiver. Don’t put anything past him because I don’t think there’s anything he won’t do in order maintain his power.

Even if the FBI did and screwed up, you'd have to be a fool if you didn't see everything that mother says as Jihad by other means. After all she named his born son after:
From Amazon's description of the book:
"He blazed through Asia, razing cities to the ground. He tortured conquered inhabitants without mercy, sometimes ordering them buried alive, at other times decapitating them. Over the ruins of conquered Baghdad {before its "conversion" to Islam}, Tamerlane had his soldiers erect a pyramid of 90,000 enemy heads. As he and his armies swept through Central Asia, sacking, and then rebuilding cities, Tamerlane gradually imposed an {Islamic} iron rule..."
And the US gave this family asylum! Would Israel have granted asylum to German parents who named their 1st born child Hitler?

Assuming the FBI was in touch, they are probably prohibited front using the words “terrorism” and “Muslim” in the same report => low priority...!

Yep. That second “them” is the statists I presume. Looks like they got both of them now. They are saved now.

Something does not make sense to me:

How did the FBI not review their own files of all known possible terrorists living in Boston? I would have thought that by Tuesday they would have already reviewed his file and questioned him. It’s an obvious first place to look.

I am no FBI expert, but this seems so obvious to me. Am I missing something?

“Did you forget FBI training must be cleared with CAIR?”

Seriously, that could be an answer. Here is a logical approach that any one of us would have taken: Step 1 - run a keyword search for “terrorist” or “radical” along with the address “Boston.” Step 2 - take the list of hits and divide them up among the investigators. Step 3 - send officers to each address. Yes, the exercise may not itself end up with the suspects, but at the least it would cross off the obvious.

“That big metal thingie on wheels .....” is far less of a threat than aircraft with infra-red sensors.

While they are less useful in dense forests with high primary canopy and intermediate canopy growth, for much of America’s forests they can image people under forest canopy concealment.

As Jackson said “Stay out Da Bushes”.

To an Apache or a Spooky/Spectre, hiding is verrrry difficult.

That’s not how it would work. You can merely let things happen that could have been stopped. Recruitment not necessary.

It’s an obvious first place to look.

And INS would have had their pictures since they had permanent resident status. You would think that they would have tried to match that photo database against the photos they had of the two -- including photos better than the ones they released to the public which they apparently had.

But they may have had a more complex motivation -- releasing the pictures got everybody looking for them. But finding them from their pictures wouldn't have been hard - the kid had the equivalent to a facebook page after all in Russia. You'd think the FBI could find that.

A spokesperson for the FBI told Business Insider Friday that the agency would be putting out a statement “shortly” regarding its previous contact with either of the Tsarnaev suspects. The spokesperson would not confirm or deny that the agency had had any previous contact.”

Anyone who would be surprised by this hasn't been paying attention.

You have to assume they were tracking McViegh also. The Michigan militia had reported him to the FBI as being too violent.
