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.

When you look at how many security.intel briefings Obama blew off, he has plausible deniability with this. I hate saying it. But he does.

And that is exactly WHY he blew off that many intel briefings.. So charge him with dereliction based on that and impeach.

Interesting report that one DHS official contacted said that they were aware of the letter......another DHS official denies.

Hmmmm......

The Daily Mail is holding to the story; it's now linked on Drudge; is there any Saudi confirmation or denial from the Saudis themselves?

I think you are right. The reason is found in your second paragraph concerning the “real” news. It actually is more impactful to most people, because most people are in thrall to entertainment, and have lost the ability to resist. They are conditioned, and corrected, and corrupted. It’s all about the treats and fantasy.

For most people, the real world is ignored in favor of the iphone and hdmi. There is no future, there is no responsibility. We are a weak and disarmed society.

People don’t change until they have to. Give the treats and they will follow.

Nah. “No big deal”. “No one told me”. “We need more information”.

These people will NEVER be impeached....and America will continue to suffer.

So...let’s go shoot something! ;)

Maybe a UFO attack will do it for us?

They would be legal residents and put on a path to citizenship. And we'll be sure not to call them Aliens.

I wondered yesterday why Obambi was holding a news conference with questions.

Maybe they knew this story was going to get out.

Obama had been warned by Russia- twice and Saudi Arabia- once.
THIS SAYS IT ALL!

“Obama let the bombers act - on purpose.

Now he is protecting the Boston bomber while threatening the Benghazi Victims.

Obama must be arrested, taken to GITMO for aggressive interrogation to learn who his cell handlers are.”

Russia and Saudi Arabia warnings ... or warning shots at WH fuzzy ‘red lines’.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry is headed to Russia next week to meet Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The talks are expected to touch on the attack in Boston and a host of bilateral tensions. The US and Russia are at odds on Syria, Iran and missile defense among other issues.

Duped by the Saudi Regime

EXCERPT

True. The Saudis do track terrorists and have kicked out the Muslim Brotherhood from setting up shop in their country. This report from the Carnegie Endowment covers Saudi “cooperation” with the US in fighting terrorism. The joker in that deck is that the terrorists of interest to the Saudis generally turnout to be a threat to the Saudi royal family. They are either Shia (the Saudis are Sunni) or Sunni/Wahhabi terrorists who think the Saudi regime is not the hard-line Islamists they should be.

However, while the Saudi Royal family has “cooperated” with US intelligence agencies, they have at the same time, as this report from Money Jihad shows, long been a financial supporter of jihadist movements worldwide including financial support for radical Mosques and Imams. In fact, money supporting jihadist movements in North Caucasus (think Chechnya, Boston Bombers) traces back to Saudi Arabia and Osama bin Laden. Moreover, they continue to support the Muslim Brotherhood - they just don’t want them in the neighborhood.

WCVB in Boston: Source: Saudis warned US about Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev

"...The Saudi source claims Tsarnaev was boasting about plans online raising the attention of people monitoring jihadi websites based in Yemen."

Tamerlan Tsarnaev posting (in arabic?) on Yemeni jihadist websites ... something to look into ...
