Boston bombing suspect put on terrorist watch list at CIA request
Washington Post ^ | 04/24/2013 | Greg Miller and Sari Horwitz

Posted on 04/24/2013 2:39:54 PM PDT by Enchante

The CIA asked the main U.S. counterterrorism agency to add the name of one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers to a watch list more than a year before the attack, according to U.S. officials.

Janet was more worried about turning the DHS into a Lesbian lovefest.

I have heard from several sources that Janet’s DHS has some really weird stuff going on inside of it concerning her treatment of male staffers.....

Almost like how she loves to “dominate and humiliate” them...

I am also utterly disgusted at how eager various (usually anonymous) intel officials are to proclaim that the brothers were “self radicalized” and had no overseas terror ties.... within only hours or days, without any adequate research!!

We simply do not KNOW enough yet, but the idea of accepting the surviving bomber’s hospital statements, or assuming that “absence of evidence provides evidence of absence” shows yet again how piss-poor awful many of our politically correct intel and security people are (when they are filtered and selected by bureaucracies dominated by clones of Obama and Biden et al).

Maybe there are overseas jihad ties, maybe not, but no one can claim at this point to have definitive info AGAINST such ties..... we simply do not know enough.

Media and administration hacks are soooo eager to rule out such ties, when we do not even yet know who the notorious “Misha” is who is said by family to have been key to radicalizing Tamerlan..... and there is so much we do not know. It doesn’t stop politically correct pundits and administration apologists from concocting their webs of misinformation.

Unfortunately I don't believe anything anybody in the feral government says any more, so this could be as much BS as we usually get from DHS, ATF, FBI, M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E.......

Thanks, Baraq, for making this once loyal American a total cynic.

Getting stranger and stranger. If WP is floating this story...they are saying..look over here...not over there....this is a bigger deal. This government is coming unglued. Constitutional crisis next stop.

They are even talking about Gosnell now to take the heat off the other news. Damage control and furious spin coming down the pike.

Folks, follow up on the timescale: Tamerlan is said to have returned from Russia in June/July 2012.

Yet, if the CIA added or tried to add him to the terrorism watch list months before then, should he ever have been allowed back into the USA??

Remember that he was on a “green card” so he could/should have been kept out?? Can’t a green card be revoked if someone qualifies for the terrorist watch list??

At the very least he should have drawn close attention from the FBI, and apparently did not.

For one thing, if he was on anyone’s radar, properly, how could it have taken several days until the public circulation of the brothers’ photos??? How could the brothers have remained free so long after the bombings when they were “hiding in plain sight”???

This is a massive, epic counter-intel FAIL on many counts.

It also appears there definitely was an individual “Misha” who radicalized the older brother, I thought that was bull but see various people on TV now who met Misha and knew he was the one advising the bomber on Islam the last 4 Years. Many people met this guy.

makes it even worse that the FBI cleared the bomber.

This corrupt and incompetent administration needs to be publicly disgraced, dismantled, and torn to shreds over this and Benghazi.

Time for real patriots to step up in Congress and the media, and from within the intel and security bureaucracies.

Rampant narcissistic Obama-ism has killed too many good Americans.

This CIA warning is a year old. Today, as asserted by the FBI’s former expert on the Muslim Brotherhood and Terrorism, John Guandolo, the CIA Director is a Wahhabi Muslim, converted in the presence of other CIA agents while he was Chief of Station in Riyadh.

The public is beginning to see the effects of Muslim influence permeating our government. It goes way back. Vernon Jarrett, Valerie's father-in-law interviewed Obama’s handler, Dr. Kahlid al-Mansour, forty years a legal advisor to Alwaleed bin-Talal, in the Chicago Tribune in 1979. His topic was a Saudi program, managed by Dr. al-Mansour, to fund the (Wahhabi) education of black and Hispanic disadvantage minorit A few years later al-Mansour wrote to Maloolm X's attorney, Percy Sutton, asking for help in getting Obama into Harvard. Is it any surprise today's media chose to dismiss Sutton's recollections, voiced in 2008 during a local access New York television interview program, and available on YouTube. Bin-Talal, through his US-born attorney, Khalid al-Mansour, a virulent black nationalist, fund manager for Wahhabi Mosques (90+%), and a founder of the Black Panthers, was Obama’s patron. This administration reflects the effects of that patronage.

The agencies are trying to make sure they get their info on the record. Think about the press conference where the FBI guy said we have no idea who these guys were, every agency had a file on the older brother. We spend 1 trillion dollars on this stuff. UHHG

Obama - A failure! Come now how can that be!

the entire administration is one abject failure!

Infuriating to say the least! The circle of the different agencies wagons has begun though and that tells us that Beck and others are onto something big. I am waiting on the Blaze to update the evening show on demand for today, so I can watch the part I missed.

Levin talking about it now..hmmmm.

This Boston Bombing incident sure proved the lie about 'background checks' in the United States.

Several things proven so far:

1. DHS government terror watch list has got to be the best and most rigorous 'background check' in the nation, but it evidently can be fooled by a single character misspelling in a suspect's name. You can be actively watched by the FBI and DHS and travel to and from the most dangerous Muslim terrorist nation on the planet and nobody will bat an eye if the name on your state-issued driver's license doesn't match up with the DHS terrorist watch list. Outrageous.

2. You can be watched by the FBI for years, interviewed by FBI field agents even, and still acquire bombs and guns and fireworks and bomb components with no visible means of support. I'm not even convinced the terrorist would show up on a NICS background check to prevent them from purchasing a gun.

3. If you're a terrorist and haven't got enough guns, murdering a cop and taking their sidearm is one viable option for circumventing a 'background check' at the sporting goods store.

4. Add up all of the above and it appears that America's first line of defense against terrorists who walk amongst us is whatever scrutiny the old man running a gun counter or a fireworks stand uses in detecting furriners up to no good.
