Skip to comments.BOMBSHELL: Saudi Arabia warned the United States IN WRITING about Tamerlan Tsarnaev....
Posted on 04/30/2013 9:05:23 PM PDT by penelopesire
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts killed three and maimed hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document. The Saudi warning, the official told MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen. Citing security concerns, the Saudi government also denied an entry visa to the elder Tsarnaev brother in December 2011, when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca. Tsarnaev's plans to visit Saudi Arabia have not been previously disclosed.
Was it preventable? A senior Saudi official says his country warned the U.S. about Tamerlane Tsarnaev in 2012, advising the federal government that he planned an attack on a major U.S. city
Did she know? Janet Napolitano (R) sits atop the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that allegedly received a detailed letter from the Saudi kingdom about Tsarnaev (L) and three Pakistani jihadis The Saudis' warning to the U.S. government was also shared with the British government. 'It was very specific and warned that 'something was going to happen in a major U.S. city,' the Saudi official said during an extensive interview. It 'did name Tamerlan specifically,' he added. The 'government-to-government' letter, which he said was sent to the Department of Homeland Security at the highest level, did not name Boston or suggest a date for his planned attack.

Boston Bombing ping!!
The Daily Mail article!
Butchie Napolitano needs to resign for not doing her job. She was too busy chasing the TEA Party while the Islamoterrorists were scheming to kill MORE Americans.
It’s because we need immigration reform to find out who’s here..../sarc
I hope people start to realize what a usurper we have in our WH.
Obama had been warned by Russia- twice and Saudi Arabia- once.
Obama let the bombers act - on purpose.
Now he is protecting the Boston bomber while threatening the Benghazi Victims.
Obama must be arrested, taken to GITMO for aggressive interrogation to learn who his cell handlers are.
Saudis developed intelligence separately from Russia, which also warned the U.S. about the accused Boston bomber
A letter to the Department of Homeland Security named Tsarnaev and three Pakistanis as potential jihadis worthy of U.S. investigation
Red flags from Saudi Arabia included Tsarnaev’s name and information about a planned explosive attack on a major U.S. city
Saudi foreign minister, national security chief both met with Obama in the oval office in early 2013
And the only way to solve the problem is to pass sweeping gun control legislation.
Did they let it happen in hopes of getting radical guns laws passed in it’s wake?
How in the hell did the FBI not know, they met on apr 16, because they didn’t they share this with FBI. What did the president know and when did he know it.
In the wake of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal met with Secretary of State John Kerry on April 16, and then had an unscheduled meeting with President Obama on April 17.
‘This is the DNA of the Saudi government,’ said the Saudi official, referring to officials in the royal court in Riyadh. ‘This is how they work. They sent the letter, but that wasn’t enough. They then sent their top guy to meet personally with the president.’
Even this article makes Tamarlan the bad guy (The dead one).
No need to focus on poor misguided Johkar. /s
Going down on “Berber” carpet?
How many times must this be posted before the American public understands they’ve been gang banged and lied to by corrupt government?
Lets just open our immigration and borders to anyone who wants to kill, crap on, and gang rape our system...
The crap with this administration is just endless!!!
In a sane world, this would lead to a massive collapse in confidence in this administration. Instead, I bet it doesn’t even cause a blip.
Big Sis did not tell them?
“A Homeland Security official confirmed Tuesday evening on the condition of anonymity that the 2012 letter exists, saying he had heard of the Saudi communication before MailOnline inquired about it.
While U.S. intelligence agencies are exploring the possibility that Tsarnaev learned to make pressure-cooker bombs while visiting Dagestan in 2012, Saudi Arabia was his first choice for a travel destination until the kingdom turned down his visa request
As many as 4 million Muslims make pilgrimages annually to the Grand mosque in the city of Mecca. Tsarnaev sought to join them for an ‘Umrah’ journey, a trip that happens outside of the month reserved for the annual Hajj
A DHS official denied, however, that Homeland Security received any such warning from Saudi intelligence about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
‘DHS has no knowledge of any communication from the Saudi government regarding information on the suspects in the Boston Marathon Bombing prior to the attack,’ MailOnline learned from one Homeland Security official who declined to be named in this report.
The White House took a similar view. ‘We and other relevant U.S. government agencies have no record of such a letter being received,’ said Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the presidents National Security Council.”
Perhaps more reason for a member of Prince al Waleed bin Talal’s security detail to be suited up with Craft at the Marathon. I wonder if we will eventually be told that al Harbi was a Saudi agent?
The hounds wail for the dead.
How about this, the Saudi’s Ambassador meets Pres and says “we will trade you the information on who did this but let the boy go. If you don’t we will leak we told you back a year ago. Please let the boy go.
My guess is same people leaked this to UK that Beck worked with.
The intelligence operatives are pissed, now who’s under the Bus
Hee hee hee
Time for a class action suit against the Bath-House Barry Gubmint and all it’s idiot employees by the victims of the Boston bombing.
Nappie was told to find domestic terrorists...preferably Tea Party members. Under the bus for you!
Yep..but it is getting worse since Benghazi..they are cocky and arrogant.
And so is our Obama media! Let’s spread this far and wide..we have to bypass the palace guards.
There is NO WAY such a letter would not be read by the head of the department so Big Sis is on the hook for sure here.
The Big O has got to do something here as this is getting too close to the Oval Office for him. Bus will be doing a run shortly.
His Excellency must be worried about quite a bit, for example, todays rambling “news conference” was announced with only a few hours notice. Almost like let’s go out and shift the spot light. The boy king is worried because his media buddies cannot hold back the tide now, too many items hitting the news from too many different sources about too many different subjects. Political Kemo is having little affect on the cancer upon this presidency. The only thing for boy wonder to do now is to come up with some kind of diversion: Stock market crash; war; pandemic something to get on the front page and stay there for a long time. His immigration plans are DOA; Gun control is waning (even with help from a few fellow traveler RINOs; Obamacare is more hated then ever; his entire legislative ideas are being undermined by events out of his control. If a few dem senators leave the fold, he will really have to worry about surviving an impeachment perhaps too. Pass the popcorn.
Definitely getting hot over at 1600 tonight....LOL!!
Giving the admin the benefit of the doubt that there is no Muslim appeasement program, this is gross incompetence and cannot stand.
It bugs me that this guy will probably walk.
The Gov has charged him with using a "weapons of mass destruction"
The same Gov that had a different meaning of "weapons of mass destruction" when GWB was in office.
The same Gov that refuses to call chemical weapons in Syria, "Weapons of mass destruction"
Was he the US citizen or the one denied citizenship
Read the article...there was some unnamed GOP house aide quoted making excuses already. (Shaking head)
An aide to a Republican member of the House Homeland Security Committee speculated Tuesday about why the Obama administration contradicted the knowledgeable Saudi official.
It is possible the Department of Homeland Security received the information from the Saudi government but never passed it on to the White House, the GOP staffer said. ‘Communication between DHS and the White House’s national security apparatus isn’t always what it should be.
‘I can easily see it happening where one hand didn’t know what the other was doing because of a turf war.’
‘Just like the different agencies in the Boston JTTF [Joint Terrorism Task Force] want credit for breaking the Tsarnaev case,’ the aide added, ‘they sometimes jealously guard the very intel they should be sharing the most freely. Sometimes it makes no sense at all.’
ob@ma knew and did nothing
everywhere he goes he turns over control to the muslim brotherhood.....
when will he be tried for treason against the United States of America
The dead one was not a citizen.
What do you think? I would not be surprised in the least.
Just remember, they have been pouring in for twenty years and their have been no GOP efforts to do anything. In other words, playing politics with this diminishes the problem.
Black Hat bomber....dead one.
This proves to me that this bombing was allowed to happen.
Yep and I think the Saudi regime is getting nervous at how much Zero is screwing up. AQ is an existential threat to the Saudi Royal Family.
I don’t know what makes me more furious, Zer0 sleeping during Benghazi, Hilary saying, “What difference does it make?” or Big Sis dropping the ball on the Tsarnaev brothers. Please make this nightmare go away! I can’t stand to watch this abortion called the Obama Administration!
I’ll say it again in this thread: I’m not clever enough to know exactly how or by whom, but I think we’re being played here.
Do we have two greater enemies in the world than Russia and Saudi Arabia? Why are they now our best friends, warning us repeatedly about the dangers of terrorism?
Does anybody buy this?
Can anyone who understands disinformation better than I do give some insight into this?
Sure looks that way!
Giving the aide the benefit of the doubt, he could be correct, the info did not go beyond DHS and given the source of the info, that means Crapatano will be under the bus faster than I thought it would happen. The little O has to protect himself here at all costs and if this comment is any where accurate, it means she is a goner. If she opens her mouth, she will be enshrined at Ft Marcy Park for sure.
The aide also makes mention of the whitehut national security apparatus....in 2012 that would have been Brennan, right? The plot thickens.
I just emailed the story to several of the Boston paper writers . I suggest everyone do that, their emails are easy to get just click on the byline names and they pop up.
One of Boehner's minions at work in all probability.
The Napster: With both Saudi Arabia and Russia warning us about this Tamerlane guy shouldn't we check up on him?
The Head Cheese: No, we need to use the fear it will provoke on the nation. That will be more useful to us.
Our enemies are radical Islamists and AQ IMHO.
Both are enemies of Russia and the Saudi regime. Obama is about to blow up the entire Middle East...folks are getting nervous.
Everyone is missing the fact the ambassador met Obama after the bombing and 2 days before they released the pictures. If they knew he was a suspect and shared it with big sis and not FBI or CIA they are toast.
Could the Saudis be throwing Obama under the bus, all they have to do is leak they gave the file to Kerry or Bozo and its over.
What more can you expect from the District of Criminals?
