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.
