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.

Yes they are bring the Arab spring to Washington LOL
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.
I am out for the night, I will be up early, hold down the fort.
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?
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.
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...
Thanks for everything. I am headed to bed shortly too. Got a doc appointment in the am.
Andrew Kaczynski @BuzzFeedAndrew 16m Other byline on that Mail story is "American Media Institute." Who wants to guess other author is Richard Miniter? http://richardminiter.com/newdev/american-media-institute/
Andrew Kaczynski @BuzzFeedAndrew 23m Both the Dept. of Homeland Security and White House say the Daily Mail story is incorrect. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2317493/BOMBSHELL-Saudi-Arabia-warned-United-States-IN-WRITING-Tamerlan-Tsarnaev-2012-rejected-application-entry-visa-visit-Mecca-2011.html
Andrew Kaczynski @BuzzFeedAndrew 29m Daily Mail reports Saudis warned US about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2012.Said he planned to "explosive attack" on US city. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2317493/BOMBSHELL-Saudi-Arabia-warned-United-States-IN-WRITING-Tamerlan-Tsarnaev-2012-rejected-application-entry-visa-visit-Mecca-2011.html

Wonder if this is why had that press conference today - hoping to distract. Hopefully he’ll realize that there is some stuff even his black @ss can’t b.s. his way out of.
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!
Thanks for that link. Unlike some, I don’t believe the whole Saudi regime is hostile to us or the west, but they are made up of a mixed bag and they all are Muslim and their country sucks....lol. Sounds like interesting reading.
Mark Levin had some not too nice words to say about Buzzfeed recently.
I need to find a transcript.
He’s the dead one.
Can’t we go after him on the constitutionality of holding office? IE the birther stuff? /S
What are you talking about? The system worked!
Well...of course they are going to deny it....lol. And then the American lapdog media will take that denial as end of story.
Congressional hearings are warranted here.
