Skip to comments.Boston bombing suspect put on terrorist watch list at CIA request
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.

Massive counter-terrorism fail!!!
Janet said the system worked.
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 think the CIA statement loosely translates to: “Remember Benghazi? Paybacks are a ....”
Creepy and weird!
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.
Thanks, Baraq, for making this once loyal American a total cynic.
I am having flashbacks to the “Saturday Night Massacre” of 1973.
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.
Looks like Big Sis will be the fall guy, figuratively and literally
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.
I think you’re onto something here......
coulda woulda shoulda
Reminds me of Clinton coming out after 9/11 all “Hey I went after bin Laden, we just missed him but at least I tried blah blah..”
Is there a John Dean somewhere in there?
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.
When you’ve lost the Washington Post...
Highly doubtful. She’ll go away quietly and fall on the sword for the administration. The MSM media will walk away after. Nothing to see here, moving along
The terrorist started a family living off welfare. You can’t put a solid Democrat Party voter on some watch list. Get real!
That and Zero’s own personal Gestapo
By their definition a terrorist is someone who puts a
NRA or Tea Party bump sticker on their car.....
Yeah the part about how they are starting to clamp down on the potential sources inside of it...
Why can’t the CIA take him out when he was overseas?
Your suspicions about the Washington Post are well founded. They are a starting pitcher for Team MSM.GOV.
Shes safe... history has shown that nothing sticks to Janet the Skunk.
Yep....expect them to write something which will look like a scandal..to take the eyes of the real scandal that the Blaze is breaking. They did the same thing during Monica and Clinton.
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.
Let’s not forget that saudi. Why was he near the blast?? Why was he a person of interest?? Why was he even there, when he was supposed to be in school in Ohio?? Why does this stink to high heaven!!
... there’s always the New York Times.
Foxnews Special Report says.
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!
Just wonder what those true grades in high school, college and harvard law school. Has anyone ever seen the law license that he supposedly had purchased for him by the Saudi’s, opps, I mean he earned, opps i mean threatened, opps I mean granted to by harvard.
the entire administration is one abject failure!
Did a glance on the Foxnews site.....nothiced nothing as yet.
He was taken off the list while in Russia.
Thanks for the ping, please keep on your pin list
As I said before, what good is a stinking “watch list” when no one is watching!
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.
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.
What is he saying , he does not like Glenn, I am curious. Can’t listen
Why do two rubes use a special battery that is used in toys that is more expensive then one at Walmart . This bomb was not you typical pipe bomb.
More questions waiting to be answered.
Just think if we'd had the Internet then...
Where has all the integrity gone...? (flowers)
>>>He was taken off the list while in Russia.<<<
Maybe they hoped he won’t be back?
