The Daily Beast ^ | Apr 26, 2013 5:30 PM EDT | Daniel Klaidman

Posted on 04/27/2013 11:56:38 AM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has told investigators that he and his brother were influenced by the Internet sermons of the notorious preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, Daniel Klaidman reports. Plus: the feds now know who “Misha” is.

One reason the FBI may not have probed more aggressively, according to a U.S. official who has been briefed on the case, is that the Russians never revealed the basis for their suspicions.

I thought that was the FBI's job

Sorry.....bulls..t article. Its the “look how Obama killed the guy who influenced them” cover that you will continue to see from a complicit media. The bottom line is, if Russia tips you off to a guy, you clear him, he goes BACK to Russia, returns, they call again, and now say that they had lost track of him? Please.

He left behind a puzzle: Why did these two young men seemingly turn on the country that had granted them asylum?

"Seemingly"?? A "puzzle"??

I found the answer: The Boston Marathon bombing -- The FBI investigates

There does happen to be a small Armenian contingent living in Chechnya. I wonder if this “Misha” as*hole isn’t a convert from there...

Yes, it was. I guess they thought it was the FSB's job to hand everything to them on a silver platter. How tough would it have been to look at Tamerlan's Amazon wish list page?

“Less than a year later, he masterminded the package bomb plot, in which AQAP managed to place improvised bombs on cargo planes headed to the United States. (They were intercepted as a result of a tip by Saudi intelligence.)”

Is this part of the on going war between the Saudi’s and al qaeda?

I agree with what you guys are asking, if the Russians didn’t share the WHY of their concerns, why did our FBI drop it?

I get the sense that Anwar al-Awlaki was great at getting people angry enough to try something, but maybe not so great at execution - scratch that, he did succeed with Hasan, but then they backpedal saying he didn’t know about Hasan’s intentions. What??

Pay no Attention to Saudi Money Connections to that Damn Boston Mosque, which in-turn has Muslim Brotherhood board of trustee's, who are of course, a largely secular group backed by the Ubama Regime.

More than a week before three people were killed and more than 175 people were injured in the Boston Marathon bombings, a Jersey City man was arrested at the train station in Hoboken while carrying two home-made bombs, authorities say.

Mykyta Panasenko, 27, ......we were wondering if Misha is a nickname for Mykyta.

Of course!! I really want to see hearings on why they changed so many training manuals to focus on white, conservative, bible and gun tooting Americans!! They had no basis in fact to do anything like that. It is a major abuse of power to use the presidency and executive branch to persecute your political enemies.

There are so many impeachable offenses at this point it is staggering.

HuffPo posts a photo of Mykyta posing in front of the White House. http://tinyurl.com/cee65fd

FWIW . . .In the comments section to that post at HuffPo, Mykyta posts the following:

I may field questions, but only if they are kept respectful! Firstly, to the most anticipated ones (although they should be moot and no-one's business, I will answer them anyway). I am 27. Naturalized US Citizen in 2010. Arrived from Ukraine at 12 (by the way, it is NOT "the" Ukraine, since it is afer all a country, not a territory -- it is a cold War era stylistic anachronism to precede the country's name with a definite article). Have degrees in math and physics. Former chess expert. White (caucasian). Religiously, I suppose I am Christian if I am anything, but I haven't been to church for a long time, though still keep a Bible on my bookshelf. Young urban professional at the time of the incident. Income funded by casino gamblers worldwide. Sympathetic to many Ukrainians who deserve a decent country and therefore very strongly anti-Communist. I have a tendency to pick up hobbies and drop them. Las summer, it was model rockets. Before that, it was going to gun ranges, renting pistols and shooting them. I even have a Basic Pistol certificate from the NRA. I didn't realize that making fireworks with Pyrodex is any different. After all, how does the proprietor of a shooting range who rents me a deadly firearm without any checks know that I am not a madman? There are people all over YouTube making these poppers. Unfortunately, the law says otherwise. I endangered peple through folly more than a drunk driver."

I thought that was the FBI's job.

The FBI's job is to find bubbas in the woods blowing up toilets. To prove someone is a terrorist requires more then the terrorist themselves admitting they are terrorist. After all, the society might have cause their act. That explains how someone can drive around Boston with a terrorista#1 license plate and never be questioned.

Thanks Ernest. I’m sure most will not complain about a lack of information continuing to stream out regarding the Boston bombers. How solid some of things turn out to be yet has to be determined. Especially regarding the US Russian interface.

John Bolton spoke on Fox and said that...”

...”Asylum seekers are suppose to be investigated, especially when they are coming from a country like Chechnya known for Extremists”......and any other country who are known for having them.

So they should have done a more through background on this family when they first came here...it would be interesting to see who gave the go ahead for them to come here in the first place...though I understand a family member helped put thru the request.

If a family member is already here can family members be exempt from an complete investigation??????

That's a lot of good reading, penelopeshire, thanks.

Just read poll results on EuTimes website showing that 70% of their readers consider the Marathon bombing a false flag incident. I'm seeing a lot of that elsewhere, too. Guess I've a lot of catching up to do.

..And it begins....CAIR kicking up it’s heels for state and federal officials to investigate the following.... just another way to milk our system and declare Muslims have “special” treatment....Didn’t take them long...

“Words were spray-painted on the mosque before dawn Saturday, said Lt. Arthur Gregory, a spokesman for Oklahoma City police. He said he did not know the nature of the words.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said in a statement that the words were obscenities. It wants the matter investigated as a hate crime and wants state and federal law enforcement to determine whether the vandalism was a reaction to the bombings.”

I can’t remember when they came here and too tired to hunit tonight...very long day at work... but there’s enough information of that day out there to find out when they got here.

But if i recall a family member, female, helped to make that happen and someone mentioned if there are family members here under Asylum then other family members also can come, and this without too much of a background check.

I’d want to know who checked them in...!
