BOMBSHELL: Saudi Arabia warned the United States IN WRITING about Tamerlan Tsarnaev....
The Daily Mail ^ | April 30, 2013 | By DAVID MARTOSKO and THE AMERICAN MEDIA INSTITUTE

Posted on 04/30/2013 9:05:23 PM PDT by penelopesire

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts killed three and maimed hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document. The Saudi warning, the official told MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen. Citing security concerns, the Saudi government also denied an entry visa to the elder Tsarnaev brother in December 2011, when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca. Tsarnaev's plans to visit Saudi Arabia have not been previously disclosed.

Was it preventable? A senior Saudi official says his country warned the U.S. about Tamerlane Tsarnaev in 2012, advising the federal government that he planned an attack on a major U.S. city

Did she know? Janet Napolitano (R) sits atop the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that allegedly received a detailed letter from the Saudi kingdom about Tsarnaev (L) and three Pakistani jihadis The Saudis' warning to the U.S. government was also shared with the British government. 'It was very specific’ and warned that 'something was going to happen in a major U.S. city,' the Saudi official said during an extensive interview. It 'did name Tamerlan specifically,' he added. The 'government-to-government' letter, which he said was sent to the Department of Homeland Security at the highest level, did not name Boston or suggest a date for his planned attack.

Interesting point. Interestingly, after Barry’s first around the world tour we received some fragmentary reports, mostly just unsourced comments, that the leaders he met with thought he was a complete fool and tool. He is like a wind up doll, he goes out, reads off a teleprompter exactly what he was told to say, smiles, and leaves. In private meetings, he has no such prop. Everything except when to take out the garbage is above this guys pay grade.

I know, I know. And who can forget the barrels of yellow cake, unprocessed uranium ore? The Israelis bombed Saddam's nucelar facilities years before GWI, and the left would have US believe he let it go at that and didn't pursue any other WMDs?

One thing that is really bothering me about Boston and the people up there: the regime knew that Mutt and Joker were very dangerous, yet they let Massa taxpayers be milked for welfare to these terrorists in training; and the entire region will remain faithfully worshipful of little barry basstard boy. It is ... insane, suicidal even.

I hope they don’t go looking around the mail room for such a letter. If one came from the Foreign Minister, it would have been hand carried. I am surprised it did not go to the state department though as it seems a bit unusual for a foreign government to communicate directly with an internal government department head.

“The ‘government-to-government’ letter, which he said was sent to the Department of Homeland Security at the highest level, did not name Boston or suggest a date for his planned attack.”

As in 2001, the intelligence did not provide “actionable” intelligence - when and where, with one big difference.

In 2001 the intelligence that Bin Laden was wanting to make an attack on a major U.S. city using airplanes was just about the extent of what we knew for sure about that aim of Bin Laden’s, but it did not lead or point directly to any individual in a terrorist cell - UNLIKE as WAS the case with the Boston bombers and UNLIKE in the case of the Boston bombers where we already, supposedly, knew where they were.

2001 - some Al Queda guys want to mount an attack on a major U.S. city, somewhere, using planes

2012 - the Tzarnaev brothers, residing in the Boston area, are planning a major attack on a major U.S. city

so much for two wasted new federal agencies - the office of the intelligence Czar and DHS; just two more layers of bureaucracy, two additional layers of turf wars over obligations and responsibilities providing two additional ways for bureaucrats and their political leaders to point fingers at each other, resolving and solving what? nothing!!

I know what’s happening here. The Saudis have figured out that Obama is installing the Al Queda caliphate by force of arms throughout the Arab world, and this eventually means their corrupt selves hanging from lampposts with cash stuffed in their mouths.

This is their opening salvo. When you’re too crazy an extremist for the Saudis...

Big sis is going down!

I couldn't be more sympathetic with your sentiments but Big Sis is doing 0bumble's bidding in eshewing the war on terror by treating it as won (including ignoring intelligence to the contrary) and never referring to Islamic terrorists or Muslims in a critical way. So why would the usurper replace her with someone who would do the same thing?

Jihadists are also a threat to both the Saudi and Russian governments. The Saudi royal house is particularly threatened by them, and they certainly know they have less to fear from us than from Al Qaeda. So it’s self-preservation to keep AQ or other jihadi movements from attacking here.

Has anyone thought that the guy that was to be deported has not been deported. So in return the Saudi Royal Family has decided to release a little information regarding barack Obama just to embarass him, and force him to do their bidding. Or basically the saudis are just tired of the incompetence of Obama
