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.

If the media were not the enemy of the People, these failures would be named for what they, just what you have cited. But we know more every day that the media is the fifth column enemy within the Republic working to end it.

Entirely possible that the Saudi regime is throwing Obama under bus. Look what a mess he is making of the Middle East? They might worry that he will be assisting Al Qeada to overthrow their regime next. ????

Short answer: they know that if we really go down, so do they. For starters, about a third of their populations start starving to death, which means revolution. However, they were used to competent opposition, so they played hard to maintain a strategic edge. They are now realizing that obastard is both incompetent and a Muslim Brotherhood symp, and they’re getting desperate to stave off what they have wrought.

We found 155mm shells loaded with sarin gas in Iraq, and the media screamed “Oh! That stuffs OLD!! It is not a threat!”

We watched convoys of trucks run into Syria for 9 months during the build up to the Iraq war.

The same excuse makers ignore chemical weapons being used in Syria today, and would take a 116 year old rifle from me and call it a threat.

The biggest GOP related effort is that by Grover Norquist to block any possibility of Congressional cooperation with his no new taxes pledge. I have a son in Afghanistan and fear what this is doing to funding for our military. Others here at FR have been worried about his links to Islamic organizations, his Muslim wife, and attempts to get some into the government. Put “Grover Norquist Muslim,” or “GN Islam” in the Search box. When the page comes up click Archives for back articles. Pretty scary stuff there.

I did this search when with considerable surprise I heard him a few days ago urging quick passage of an Immigration bill. Is he worried that with the Tarnaev brothers we may make it harder for Muslim immigration?

The Saudi government sometimes tracks radicals by launching fake jihadi websites to attract extremists. The Ministry of Interior then tracks them electronically, often across the world, and shares information with governments it considers friendly, including the United States.

They just lost their minds that night but not sure it was the cops....listening to scanner it seemed to me that the cops would get them spotted or cornered and every time the Feds would push them out and move in and then wild shooting could be heard.

It doesn't matter. This administration is Teflon...the Organic Green Pan of politics. Hillary has Benghazi on her hands and still plans to run for president in 2016. Janet is taking notes from her...stall, stall, stall...until the right time to say, "what difference does it make?"

The liberals will blame it on the Republicans. The media will minimize any coverage and concentrate on the real news about Witherspoon, Collins, Lohan, and Kardashian.

And to think Nixon resigned over Watergate...

The trouble with the Obama Administration and all its officials is that NOTHING takes it down. That’s just the fact of the matter, as we’ve seen over several years. About the only thing that is going to happen is that Obama’s term in office will run out - and that’s about all that will save US from HIM!

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

I'd say impossible... but the President of Iran just got arrested so there's always hope.

If the Saudis really care about saving their Wahabi butts, they will change the hate curriculum in their Islamic funded schools in the US, and the Madrassas throughout the world. Hotbeds of a kind of fundamentalism that will destroy them from within.

It would appear that the world powers are getting sick of Obama’s reckless disregard for world order. He has made a dangerous mess of the Middle East.

And it would appear that some in his own agencies are seeing and leaking the same thing.

Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of his arrogant clueless dangerous administration.

I don’t understand how it is that after 0bama’s years of pro Muslim support from his Greetings at all the Muslim holidays, to sending money, our tax dollars to the Rebels who are who knows what ( brotherhood probably) and then he gets up at this stupid WH Correspondence dinner and makes a crack about not being the same sprite Muslim Socialist.... that Americans are not putting two and two together and getting it that this man is a Muslim in hiding in accordance with the provisions of breaking the Muslim laws for the greater good for bringing down the Infidel. 0bama has done a fine job of his phase on for the “Killing of America” as someone on BOR’s mail call suggested for his next book.
