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.

...Saudi Arabia sent a ‘written warning’ naming Tamerlan specifically, advising the federal government, (at the highest level)....they then sent the top guy (?) to meet personally with the president.
...The Intelligence was ‘very specific’ that ‘something was going to happen in a major U.S. city”.......Saudi officials believed American authorities should be inspecting packages that came to Tsarnaev in the mail in order to search for bomb-making components.
...Yemen-based sources said militants referred to Tamerlan dismissively as The Volunteer.......”He was a gung-ho, self motivated jihadi who wasn't tasked by a larger group”.
...The Pres. dismissed the idea that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was likely trained by al Qaeda while he was outside the United States last year.
...The written warning also allegedly named three Pakistanis who may be of interest to ‘British authorities’.... the two governments (Saudi/Britain)received the same information.
...Warning was based on human intelligence from Yemen, separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence (in 2011)...
...Social networking ties brought Tsarnaev to the attention of Russian security services for the first time (in late 2010)
...Russian agents placed the Tsarnaev under surveillance during a six-month visit to southern Russia last year (2012),.. then scrambled to find him when he suddenly disappeared (3 DAYS LATER) after police killed a Canadian jihadist.
...Saudi government also denied Tamerlan an entry visa (Dec. 2011) to make a pilgrimage to Mecca....rejected application came (one month) before he traveled to Russia, where U.S. intelligence sources believe he acquired training enabling him to construct and detonate the bombs.
...A DHS official denied that the agency received any such warning from Saudi intelligence about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.......The White House took a similar view..... ‘We and other relevant U.S. government agencies have no record of such a letter being received,’... said Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the presidents National Security Council.
...A Homeland Security ‘official confirmed’ the 2012 letter exists... saying he had heard of the Saudi communication .
Breaking News Fox:.... Three more ‘confirmed’ arrested regarding Boston Bombing
Yes, Fox just ‘confirmed’ three were arrested.
Well now,.....I suspect our guys will be attempting to get info from them...and the plot thickens to be sure!
“When the Russians who had no problem funneling money to violent dictator Saddam Hussein and indirectly funding al Qaeda in the oil for food scandal....are more worried about radical Islamists than we are.... you know something is amiss within our government.”

not to be confused with a Marine Corps “ooh-rah” journey.
Impeach the bitch!! Butch Napolitano, too!!
Not to worry, DHS and the TSA are working very hard to make sure grandma doesn’t get on an airplane with her pacemaker.
Janet Napolitano (R) sits atop
Janet (not of this planet) is a republican?

“Not much difference between the MB and AQ , is there?”
I see a huge difference.
AQ is like the young Bill Ayers blowing up things with nail IEDs while MB is like the older Ayers following the Alinski and Cloward-Piven strategy of taking down the US Constitutional Republic incrementally by stealth.
