Jihadi told Russians about Tamerlan
The Boston Herald ^ | May4,2013 | Matt Stout, John Zaremba

Posted on 05/04/2013 5:23:44 AM PDT by penelopesire

A slain Canadian jihadi gave Russian counter-terrorism agents the tip that put alleged Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev on their radar two years ago, Bay State U.S. Rep. William R. Keating confirmed yesterday — raising questions about whether Tsarnaev’s direct link to the known militant was ever passed on to the FBI or local authorities.

Keating told the Herald yesterday his staff in Russia has learned William Plotnikov, while under interrogation in the militant hotbed of Dagestan, named Tsarnaev as a fellow extremist.

“That’s when the Russian government started looking at Tamerlan and he showed up on a jihadist website,” Keating (D-Bourne) said. “That’s when they contacted the U.S.”

“The detail of the information from the Russians to the FBI — and whether the feds passed it on sufficiently to local authorities — is sure to come up next week on Capitol Hill, where the House Homeland Security Committee will hold a hearing on the bombings.

“I have no idea what the Russians did or did not share, but the fact they brought up his name should have been a flashing red light,” U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a member of the committee, told the Herald last night. “You combine that with international travel, and somebody’s going to have to answer some questions.

“The information is only good if it gets to those who can actually act on it,” he said. “I want to know specifically if they shared that information with the authorities in Boston.”

The Obama thugs do not want to stop terrorists from other countries from attacking us. They will allow them to happen because they can use it to advance their fascist agenda.

Plus, NAZI Germany and the Muslims worked together during WWII.

Do you really believe that?

Fast & Furious was going to get hot.
Unconstitutional recess appointments were going to get hot(the people appointed are still there by the way)
Benghazi was going to get hot.

This isn’t going any farther than the other things.

I hate to say that but good old KGB seems to have these roaches under control. Canadian jihadi was interrogated by KGB and given them a lot of info back then. As son as they turned more radical both Canadian and Tsarnaev along with Palestinian Mahmoud Nidal seems to have been abducted by KGB in July 2012 and strongly advised to go back home: “We don’t need you stinking amateur American jihadis. Go back home, have burger and let your stinking FBI deal with you, suckers”. These guys probably thought: “Screw it, we are tough jihadis”. Nidal was first to die, Canadian next. Tsarnaev finally got his message and flew back to Boston in just three days after Canadian’s death.

The answer to that excuse should be to ask if it is now US policy to ask a potential terrorist if they are a terrorist and if they say no, we close the case?! Lots of come backs to that lame excuse. I agree though that they will likely use that excuse.

I’ve not seen it mentioned anywhere, but the man’s name “Tamerlan” is obviously based on the brutal conqueror Tamerlane, aka Timur. Not a nice person.

“Timur envisioned the restoration of the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan. As a means of legitimating his conquests, Timur relied on Islamic symbols and language, referring to himself as the Sword of Islam and patronizing Islamic educational and religious institutions. Most of his conquests were against other Muslims.

“Scholars estimate that his military campaigns caused the deaths of 17 million people, amounting to about 5% of the world population. In 1400 Timur invaded Christian Armenia and Georgia. Of the surviving population, more than 60,000 of the local people were captured as slaves, and many districts were depopulated.

“He invaded Baghdad in June 1401. After the capture of the city, 20,000 of its citizens were massacred. Timur ordered that every soldier should return with at least two severed human heads to show him. (Many warriors were so scared they killed prisoners captured earlier in the campaign just to ensure they had heads to present to Timur.)

“Muslim writers complaining that the Timurid army acted more like a horde of savages than that of a civilized conqueror. Timur was furious at the Genoese and Venetians whose ships ferried the Muslim Ottoman army to safety in Thrace.

“Northern Iraq remained predominantly Assyrian Christian until attacked, looted, plundered and destroyed by Timur, leaving its population decimated by systematic mass slaughter.

“He died in 1404, enroute to conquer China, in the coldest recorded winter until then.”

FBI had no comment.

But ask them about General Petraeus and their hired prostitute and they will have a comment.

A flashing red light indeed. I hope Chaffetz really bores in on this development.

Defeatist???? Hardly. Just using past experience and the fact that the media is our enemy to face facts.

This POS has the greatest melanin cover that ever existed.

A totally inept racist moron bent on destroying a country and getting the help of Media and the entire Democrat party and the RINO Republicans to do it.

In Mexico the bastard had the temerity to say the United States was at fault for illegal guns in Mexico, after he and Holder ran them in there. There is no end to the Hubris of this Muslim Kenyan Manchurian candidate.

You can call it defeatist if you like, but please when you do, give me an example of when he has been halted.

Yep it would appear so. I just want to know why. Did we have a Islamist mole at the FBI that took the call and hide it? Was it just PC madness? Was it incompetence? Has the Gorelick wall been rebuilt? what?

Someone needs to get to the bottom of it. This ‘We looked into it and found nothing’ excuse is not going to cut it.

To be fair, the Department of Homeland Security did send an agent to Tamerlan's house to ask him the all-important question, "You're not really a terrorist, are you?"

I read some American Pravda media saying that most Muslims do not approve the historical Muslim figure of Tamerlan’. Somehow I doubt it.

Each one - Benghazi & Boston Bombing will probably cross each other off and nothing will be done.

Like Gun Control, Immigration Issues, Sandy Hook, etc.

People will be overwhelmed by what they are hearing/reading/talking with their friends about and a kind of paralysis will sits in.

Bring the Crisis Actors up and you will be banished by people who are themselves prisoners of their own paralysis....

And, some will be told to put their aluminum foil hat on and Pres. and Congressional branches will have all of it swept under the rug.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr..............okay, POTUS and Congress, you can be heroes or you can be goats. What's it gonna' be, fellas?

Tick, tock runs the clock. Heroes or goats, tough guys?

My company closed down on me before I could pull off my scheme - I was going to get fired for cursing the boss and the (having a diagnosis of Tourette's Syndrome in my pocket), proceed to law sue the lot of them.

not a real plan - just a harmless fantasy

Yes, faking Tourette's Syndrome can be useful AND funny.

Start barking and cursing the boss!

Joy......

*snicker* your post.

I still don't understand my post as written. I kinda' know what I'm thinking but the ADD and tiredness and allergies are bugging me.

"Yeah, that right - that's the ticket". ADD, fatigue, allergies, that's right!

Will continue to try and figure it out! If not to explain I need to do it for my own sanity!
