Skip to comments.BOMBSHELL: Saudi Arabia warned the United States IN WRITING about Tamerlan Tsarnaev....
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.

So now we know that Saudi Intel was watching T1. And a Saudi national was at the scene, was injured slightly, then at a hospital, and was/will be sent home. Maybe the watcher has to be sent home for the sake of his health.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!
Once again, we hear about this from real investigative reporting, which just does not happen to reside in the good old U.S.A.
Just saw this bombshell breaking news.
Holy cow. Obama has better shove Napolitano under the bus, otherwise he’s going down with her.
And not a peep from our own media.
Where do all their investigative reporters go/do?
So sick of the fourth estate / fifth column.....
I guess that’s why he wants to close Gitmo now.
We voted for this. FORWARD
Prolly a picture that was not pictured....
So we have evidence that the administration has been willfully ignoring domestic threats from muslim jihadis.. I wonder how many other guys like him are out there that the administration ignored.
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
DHS knew nothing about the Saudi warning, WH knew nothing.
This is beyond the normal ‘incompetence’, this is proof that they are now in a full CYA mode.
Too bad the idiots we put in Washington cannot seem to read anything nor hear anything. From Benghazi to Boston there is a trail of paper and tears that no one seems to care about.
Rumors say that the Tsarnaev brothers were double agents, that they were recruited by FBI or CIA but turned against us. Now I’m wondering if Zippy is a double agent - recruited by the Saudis, but turned against them in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood. In either case, he’s not a friend to the US.
You’ve noticed their non-logic too?
I would highly doubt that they were “double agents.” That “rumor” seems to have been started by people immediately afterwards who somehow wanted to incriminate the US for their actions; I think it’s sort of in the 9/11 truther category.
They followed a predictable jihadist path, seen by both the Russians and the Saudis (whose intel comes from different sources), and there is no way the US intelligence or security services should have missed these signs. But the fact that they actually ignored warnings IN WRITING from foreign services is more than incredible.
The Russians warned the FBI, and evidently the Saudis warned the DHS and possibly somebody in the State Dept. too. Also, I think Hillary may still have been in charge at the time they warned State.
I don’t see how these people are going to be able to wriggle out of this one, although of course the problem really goes up to Bambi. But he always avoids being blamed for things, and I have no hope that he’ll get caught on this one, either.
What actually happened, what all the world sees, is that King Abdullah threw President Obama under the bus.
Obama is now singled out as incompetent and unfit to be included in the close group of world leaders.
Saudis abhor such action. For it to have happened is extremely noteworthy
Oh, wait: it wasn't printed in the U.S. . . .
Drip... drip... drip...drip... IMPEACH!
Sadly, I find it more credible to believe that Zippy is an anti-American puppet than to believe that the Tsarnaevs were double agents. It rings more true that they were just garden variety jihadists.
US intel ignoring the signs is incredible to me, too. I’d like to know how many such warnings we get. 10 in a year? 100? 1000? If we were swamped with millions of warnings, there could be at least an excuse. Somehow I doubt that is the case.
