Well, that wouldn’t be the first terrorist attack to go off with the FBI knowing who was in the country, or staying at one of their assets rental houses.

To be completely cyncal, might it not be within the realm of possibility that FedGov wouldn't mind a little mayhem on the streets in order to more easily take away basic liberties from ordinary Americans? After all . . .

DHS may have known of the trip because Tamerlan admitted it when he appeared before Immigration and Customs inspectors at the port of entry on his re-entry to the US. Such a long absence is suspicious in and of itself for any green card holder, but apparently the DHS quietly re-admitted him to the US without any further action.

This is life under Big Sis the frat girl.

Reminds me of the curious case of "lone nut" Lee Harvey Oswald, a former decorated Marine who defected to the USSR for over one year, decided he "didn't like it there" and was quietly readmitted back into the US within 48 hours.

Younger FReepers might like to know that L.H. Oswald later went on to become the lone assassin of President JF Kennedy.

A key lawmaker had said that the misspelling caused the FBI to miss the trip.

It's interesting that they don't name the key numbnut who said that.

Security Features of an American Passport

Digitized Photo

Many people think their passport photo is nothing short of a cruel and unusual joke, but it is actually a security feature. While these photos tend to be unflattering, they do serve the purpose of letting passport agents know that you are who you claim to be. It is one of the simpler elements of the U.S. passport, but it may be the most important. It is the only way for agents to properly identify you. To avoid travel delays, you should have an updated passport with a current photo. A picture that no longer looks like you can cause unnecessary delays as you pass through customs.

Sophisticated Artwork

Sophisticated artwork is applied during the printing of your U.S. passport, making forgery difficult. Guilloche techniques, which are very intricate designs that are difficult to reproduce, are used on every page of your passport, and are used to produce the "USA" logo above your picture.

Varying Security Elements

Take one look through the pages of your passport, and you'll notice that each page is different. Every page has a different design inspired by the country's history, a different guilloche pattern and a different inspirational quote. The varied elements are another security feature that makes your passport difficult to reproduce.

Holograms

Each U.S. passport features holographic images. If you hold the first page of your passport at a certain angle, you will notice images and text that were not obvious before. These images cannot be reproduced by a standard printer, therefore making the passport difficult to forge.

Ultraviolet and Fluorescent Light Verification Features

One of the safety features of your passport cannot be seen with the naked eye. These images and text must be viewed under special ultraviolet or fluorescent lighting.

Data Chip

Every passport issued since August 2007 is considered an e-passport, which means it includes a small data chip that contains the holder's name, birth date and other identifying information. At designated international check-points, the data is read through biometric facial recognition identification methods. Each chip has a digital signature to protect the sensitive information it stores.

I wonder if key lawmaker can spell 'stupid?'

months later, an FBI alert on him had expired and so his re-entry was not noted.

Yes great find, that was as bad as the suspect in custody who they said was mixed up with another Saudi with the same name and alien number. Oh wait that not it it was another guy buying dates at the port.

There are very good people in the FBI and CIA, They work hard and they refer things up the chain and then it gets to the people you are speaking of in your post. I am asking them to make a taugh choice and come clean. Can you imagine if 100 agents resigned in one big event? Or just the guys involved in this investigation. The Lib’s do this. Then they go off and work in various NGO’s. We need our own NGO’s for these guys and gals.

A reminder and Excellant link to see how this adminsistration is in bed with the enemy...

The ideological continuity and internal discipline manifested by the Brotherhood’s ability to maintain and replicate its “SETTLEMENT PROCESS” across the world, and a span of more than eight decades, is remarkable. THIS IS A FORMIIDABLE ENEMY. - Clare M. Lopez- 5-15-2013

(Clare M. Lopez, a strategic policy and intelligence expert, is a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy and the Clarion Fund. She was formerly a career operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency.)

-It is worthwhile to quote from Poole’s articles just some of the tactics outlined in ....”The Project:”

* Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations.

* Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation”.

* Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals.

* Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with shari’a law.

* Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers.

* Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of “international plots fomented against them”.

* Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing “academic” studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements.

* Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant.

* Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions.

* Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam.

* Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals.

* Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”.

* Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support.

* Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them.

That information dominance has contributed to startling consequences, most evident in the U.S. policy towards the al-Qa’eda and Muslim Brotherhood-dominated revolutions that many call the “Arab Spring,” but which in fact are more accurately termed an “Islamic Awakening.”

Under the Muslim Brotherhood-influenced ‘Obama administration’, U.S. policy has undergone such a drastic shift in the direction of outright support for these jihadist movements — from al-Qa’eda militias in Libya, to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and both al-Qa’eda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked rebels in Syria — that it is scarcely recognizable as American any more.

The infiltration of individuals such as Magid, Hussain, and Abedin, to name just a few, with such close Muslim Brotherhood identifications, to positions of influence at the highest levels of U.S. policymaking must be considered, at a minimum, a contributing factor.

Billions spent on homeland security since 9-11 and this still happens? The government did not do a sufficient job digging into who this guy was after the Russians tipped them off. The tip from the Russians should have been sufficient to have him permanently tagged. The trip to Russia should have been sufficient to justify a further review once he returned to the US. Even a cursory look at this guy’s online activities would have given the feds a sufficient basis to confirm his radicalism and to seek permission for more detailed surveillance, including a possible warrant for a wiretap.

What offense? If the FBI didn’t know because of a misspelling despite back ups and the obvious one that the name wouldn’t have matched the passport number OR they did know but ignored the implications of the trip then they have egg on their faces. There’s no way to wiggle out of this one.

I want to beleive some good people are pissed that they were ignored.
