Skip to comments.Inquiry Shifts to Suspectís Russian Trip [FBI never followed up on Tamerlan once he returned ]
Posted on 04/20/2013 7:47:15 PM PDT by NoLibZone
With one suspect dead and the other captured and lying grievously wounded in a hospital, the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings turned on Saturday to questions about the mens motives, and to the significance of an overseas trip one of them took last year.
Federal investigators are hurrying to review a visit that one of the suspected bombers made to Chechnya and Dagestan, predominantly Muslim republics in the north Caucasus region of Russia. Both have active militant separatist movements. Members of Congress expressed concern about the F.B.I.s handling of a request from Russia before the trip to examine the mans possible links to extremist groups in the region.
The significance of the trip was magnified late Friday when the F.B.I. disclosed in a statement that in 2011 a foreign government now acknowledged by officials to be Russia asked for information about Tamerlan.
But the F.B.I. never followed up on Tamerlan once he returned, a senior law enforcement official acknowledged on Saturday, adding that its investigation did not turn up anything and it did not have the legal authority to keep tabs on him. Investigators are now scrambling to review that trip, and learn about any extremists who might have influenced, trained or directed Tamerlan while he was there.

Obama was busy with getting guns to the Cartels.
and his never ending community outreach campaign.
The FBI might have been too busy helping them be better bombers.
Well, that’s a more secure than ever border for ya.....
The F, the B, and the I were busy covering for Eric the Red Holder and his Fast & Furious conspiracy, plus investigating radical militant right wing terrorist Tea Party plots, plus helping the Democratic [sic] party rig the 2012 presidential election, plus... How much time do you think the F, the B, and the I have to waste of trivial stuff?
Makes ya wanna puke.
Can you just imagine the media’s reaction if this had happened under Bush or any other Republican..they would have been calling for his impeachment
In many ways that’s all they can do. Ordinarily they would supply fake explosives, then arrest the perps. I can only guess that Tammy rebuffed their offer, his Chechen and/or Saudi handlers supplied enough, or the feebs didn’t bother attempting that sting. There really is not a lot they can with these terrorists except deport them all.
Then who does?
They were just MURDERING Americans that the
US Congress and the pRes_ _ent and the US State Dept
wanted executed by terrorism (”workplace accidents”).
This is treason by every single RINO and Congressperson
who abdicated to the treason of BenGhazi Hussein Obama.
and peopell ike Steney hoyer owe the right an apology for claimign that the bombing happend because of the sequester- the bombing happened because our governemnt LONG BEFORE the bombing FAILED to take the two maggot bomber’s actions seriously and FAILED to take Russia seriously and FAILED to monitor the older brother after he came back from russia to note that he had IMMEDIATELY put up a website expousing jihad and radial islam- The Gvoenremnt FAILED in it’s duty to protect Aemrica apparently because htey were too busy keepign a close eye on CHristian ministers, old ladies, and young children instead of focussing on KNOWN TERRORIST SYMPATHISERS liek hte two maggots who bombed boston
And, supplying M'brotherhood in the ME....
....while trying to disarm law abiding Americans!
Key question: when did Tamerlan put up that jihadist website?
Too busy keeping tabs on law abiding gun owners.
I hate the way they say the second suspect is “grievously wounded”....like we are supposed to pity him. Ugh.
More NYT BeeEss.
Is it possible there became a new set of handlers after the Russia trip, other than the FBI?
No legal authority? how much money do we spend on ICE and Homeland Security? Really?
Is this why Obama thanked Putin for his help?
This after we consistently criticized Russia for nailing the chechens.
questions about the mens motives?
OathKeepers...God bless ‘em.
They put politicians to shame.
We have to expect this with a government that cares for muslims more than it’s own people. Zero, I’m sure, has had directives sent to the FBI to go easy on his brother mudslimes.
The acceptance of the police state in Boston by many on the right is worrisome. How many Oath Keepers were involved in those actions? What would have happened if someone didn't leave their home, and didn't consent to a warrantless search of their property? It's a horrible precedent to accept regardless of it's intent, but that's exactly what we are doing.

Apparently the FBI and CIA never followed up on John Kerry’s two or three trips to met the enemy No. Vietnamese and Viet Cong in Paris to see if he had given aid and comfort to the enemy.
Or did they? That would be the most prized FBI report in modern history. THe same for any CIA report.
This is what must be explored in Executive Session congressional hearings.
No more coverups. Too many Americans are dying because of our near total intelligence failures from Afghanistan, Iraq to Benghazi, and now Boston, Massachusetts.
Heads must roll until our intelligence agencies (FBI) are back to the much more competent levels of the J. Edgard Hoover years. As for the CIA, it needs a complete overhaul.
With the criminal Brennan running CIA, there won’t be any ‘fumigating’ any time soon. Things are fixin’ to get much worse as factions in the government rip at each other.
Now, if he had done something really radical, like attend a Tea Party rally, well, he'd have a big fat dossier kept.
This explains why the Obama loving CNN reports such idiocy such as Right Wing Extremists to Blame for Explosions.
Gee, that sounds like the same line of reasoning that the Clinton crime family used to excuse their failure to take Bin Laden into custody.
Well, that would be the ATF’s jurisdiction since they have a lot of experience at this kind of stuff.
The FBI was way to busy throwing the book at some bumpkins in North Georgia that had a conversation with each other once about possibly fighting the gubmint.
BATF or Uncover FBI both help in building bombs while they are uncover. They proof in in court records.
