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.

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.
Unbe-frickin’-lievable! Great images to highlight this travesty!
Once again British papers do the work our media refuses to do... That being said absolutely nothing will come of this. It will be swept under the rug.
Janet Napolitano is proof Obama hates this country...
Doesn't matter, right? Because it's Obama, right? We keep reelecting him, right?
So it doesn't matter. Just get ready to duck.
How reliable is the UK Daily Mail?
Things are pretty bad when Saudi Arabia cares more about us than the POtuS.
Like the Murrah Building bombing, the Long Island jet shoot down and the Waco massacre I would bet the farm this was just another gub mint screw up.
You have to know after these little ditties come out that the gub mint was involved.
The Daily Mail posted pictures. Being how Big Sis looks more manly than Tamerlane, they had to identify the photos.
Per Fox&Friends, the WH is saying this never happened.
WH calls Saudis liars?
This could become a popcorn event.
Putin is embarrassed by this whole fiasco, and doesn’t want to look incompetent.
Are we FINALLY ready to impeach yet?
So he’s a “lone wolf” and “learned everything from the Internet”...
I guess the Russians and Saudis are able to monitor his computer in Boston (or how else would they know).
The same Clapper who said the Muslim Brotherhood is "largely secular" and objected to a law that said Muslim terrorists were military combatants requiring military detention when captured.
And with Republicans like McCain & Boehner in the Congress to keep the Hussein regime honest, the dump trucks full of more stones are already on their way.
Zippy is definitely anti-American, although I’m not exactly sure whose puppet he is. It seems to me that even foreign governments (such as the Saudis) are getting alarmed at his careless behavior, so I don’t think anymore that he’s working for them particularly.
Soros? Or just the cabal of anti-American, pro-Islamist leftists who are the “intellectual engine” of this White House? People like semi-retired terrorist Bill Ayers (who has a lot more influence than anybody acknowledges) and an assortment of Muslims?
I find it pretty incredible that US intel just ignored these warnings and I can’t believe they would have done so without orders from the top.
Exactly. They don’t seeem to know anything when something bad happens. As much spying the govt does, they should have known. Any claim that they didn’t know is not believable.
America is a big place and can easily "weather terrorist attacks" -(pp)
but you've got to be able to pin them on the Tea Party!
My bet is that if not for some high level LEOS and foreign intelligence, the Bomb Brothers would never have been caught and a Tea Party patsy would have been "found" and killed while "resisting arrest"
Obama will be very dangerous if he has been cornered in his incompetence and complicity.
No popcorn for me just yet....maybe a stiff drink....lol.
Treason, for the whole bunch of them.
Impeach those who can be impeached and throw the rest in jail and throw away the key.
Good question but so far in this story, they have been pretty spot on....unlike our own statist media.
Bingo. That is what I am thinking too. Something has shifted fundamentally.
Not much difference between the MB and AQ , is there? Seems like Obama is helping radical Islamists all over the ME instill their caliphate. The Saudi regime may be getting nervous that they will be next. Saudi Arabia is the big prize in these jihadist fantasies.
I’m relatively sure that not all info gets to the WH, I suspect it gets screened on the way up (I don’t know for sure, have never worked in government, I’m just thinking about how it works in a corporation). That said, if high-ups in the Russian and Saudi governments had sent letters warning of an individual(s), then one would surmise that they would reach fairly high levels in the US government.
President Bush had daily briefings (early a.m.) with Stephen Hadely (head of Nat’l Security)and other meetings w his advisors (daily IIRC) and other security advisors frequently. Obummer not so much (though his advisor claims he reads the briefing every day). I remembered this coming up in the last election (along with him not meeting with his economic council, etc., etc.). I guess if he doesn’t attend briefings, the word doesn’t get to him, so he thinks he can keep his grubby hands clean (I know nothing!). Wonder if Valerie is having briefings as part of her ‘co-presidency’.
Why is Obama skipping more than half of his daily intelligence meetings?
By Marc A. Thiessen,September 10, 2012
From the article:
“The Government Accountability Institute, a new conservative investigative research organization, examined President Obamas schedule from the day he took office until mid-June 2012, to see how often he attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) the meeting at which he is briefed on the most critical intelligence threats to the country. During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent falling to just over 38 percent. By contrast, Obamas predecessor, George W. Bush almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.”
“While the Bush records are not yet available electronically for analysis, officials tell me the former president held his intelligence meeting six days a week, no exceptions usually with the vice president, the White House chief of staff, the national security adviser, the director of National Intelligence, or their deputies, and CIA briefers in attendance. Once a week, he held an expanded Homeland Security briefing that included the Homeland Security adviser, the FBI director and other homeland security officials. Bush also did more than 100 hour-long deep dives in which he invited intelligence analysts into the Oval Office to get their unvarnished and sometimes differing views. Such meetings deepened the presidents understanding of the issues and helped analysts better understand the problems with which he was wrestling.”

I guess the Saudi intelligence has vastly improved since before 911.
At the very least this is dangerous incompetence.....at the worst..it is treason.
Both should result in Obama’s removal from office.
I’ve been reading them for a few months and they seem reliable to me, but a story this big is going to need multiple sources to gain any traction.

I just posted a thread that says the BOAT WAS IN THE SEARCH ZONE
It’s pretty incredible that Saudi Arabia is going against the guy who bows to their King.
Great..I will go find it and ping the list!
Pinging list to this link below too:
News of this Saudi stuff is starting to percolate through the worldwide media:
A few so far......hmmmmm....
Fox’n Friends opened with the Saudi story this morning.
Prayers that this gets the news it deserves!!
Time for the wheels to come off this rogue and lawless administration!
Fox ‘n Friends said that the admin is denying it received any report from the Sauid’s.....
WOW..great insight...will keep that in the back of my mind as I watch this play out.
Could very well explain everything.
Denying the story. Yeah, that’s a surprise!
