“U.S. authorities put alleged Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev on two separate watch lists in 2011 after Russian security agencies twice reached out to their American counterparts, raising new questions about missed opportunities to prevent the attack.

Russian officials contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation in March 2011, then reached out to the Central Intelligence Agency in September of that year, citing concerns Mr. Tsarnaev might have been associating with extremists, according to U.S. officials.”

BBWHAHAHAHA! Benghazi-gate version 2.

WHO will have fall on their sword for Owebama this time? Hillary got smoked for Benghazi.

Wrat, you dim bulb, Faux News gets its ratings from the fact that it has no competition. It's the only source with a fascist twist! The other networks are all in competion for the same market...normal people.

You gotta luv MSNBC fans; From the Huffington Post/Pew Research, "A separate analysis of cable in late 2012 finds that, over all, commentary and opinion are far more prevalent on the air throughout the day (63% of the airtime) than straight news reporting (37%). CNN is the only channel to offer more reporting (54%) than opinion (46%), though by a small margin. By far the highest percentage of opinion and commentary is on MSNBC (85% to 15% reporting)."

Proof the Bomber Bros are Obama Supporters!!!:

""Marathon bombings mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was living on taxpayer-funded state welfare benefits even as he was delving deep into the world of radical anti-American Islamism, the Herald has learned," reports the Boston Herald.

"State officials confirmed last night that Tsarnaev, slain in a raging gun battle with police last Friday, was receiving benefits along with his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, and their 3-year-old daughter.

The state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services said those benefits ended in 2012 when the couple stopped meeting income eligibility limits. Russell Tsarnaev’s attorney has claimed Katherine — who had converted to Islam — was working up to 80 hours a week as a home health aide while Tsarnaev stayed at home."

Now we PAY people to KILL US!!!

"Fox News continued its dominant hold of the leaderboard in the first quarter of 2013, MARKING 45 CONSECUTIVE QUARTERS AS THE HIGHEST-RATED CABLE NEWS NETWORK. But like CNN and MSNBC, Fox News is down for the quarter. The ratings for Q1 2013 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data): ? Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1,731,000 Total Viewers / 279,000 A25-54 ? ? Total Day (Mon-Sun): 1,065,000 Total Viewers / 214,000 A25-54 “The Fox Report with Shepard Smith” celebrates a major milestone this month, ranking first in Total Viewers for 50 consecutive quarters. “Fox & Friends,” “Your World with Neil Cavuto” and “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” have been number one in their respective time slots for 45 consecutive quarters."

You are blithering uninformed IDIOT!

45 quarters FOX RULES, oldman DROOLS!

I listened to ABC Radio News during Friday's manhunt. What fifth-grade radio club do they use to find the talkers? I've heard more coherent, meaningful discussions standing in line at the grocery store.

CNN blazed the way with the Gulf War coverage, and the rest of them came of age with 9/11. The problem is since then, the quality of work has seriously gone downhill. With cable, it's as much who has the story first more than who has it right. Everyone botched this bigtime, just some more than others. "Dark Complexion?" It's been funny watching Black talking heads rip John King, since he's a Leftie himself.

I have to conclude political correctness has fried the brains of the spy administrators. Don't ask, don't tell, don't SEE, don't use reason, don't make connections.

Having lived in the Detroit area, home of the largest Arab community outside the Middle East, I can categorically state Muslims are just like the rest of us. Some great ones, lots of ordinary ones, and some jerks and crooks.

As to our intelligence agencies, if you remember a previous Democratic administration had a firm policy that spy agencies could not share info with cop agencies, because it could mess up evidence for court cases. You may remember what happened, it was 9/11. These fools will try the kid as a crook, like he robbed a 7-11 and killed the clerk. In fact, given how well they do these trials, we would be more likely to execute him if he DID kill a store clerk!

Shark88 is absolutely correct. The Fort Hood shooter killed 13, way more than Boston, but the incident is considered officially "workplace violence" because Nidal Husan is a Mooslime!

Can't offend the Muslim Apologist in Chief.

Muslim are 0.6% of the USA.

{BLEEEP} 'em!!!!

Da president can not call a terrorist a terrorist 'cause these same people are his muslim brothers.

If they were born again Christians, they would have already been shackled & chained, and tarred & feathered.

Connect the dots? Are you kidding?

Who the heck can connect dots in the U.S.? Just look at the type of people the voters are electing to public office. Look at how the people hold the politicians accountable.... they don't!

God-given common sense has been thrown to the wind and now the people are reaping the whirlwind.

Unstable minds will never ever be able to connect the dots.

Wall Street Journal:

Earlier, Tamerlan had attracted the attention of the FBI. His father said the officers visited one-and-a-half years ago to discuss Tamerlan's interests and had tea in his third-floor apartment. "They told me they were watching everything—what we look at on the computers, what we talked about on the phone," he said. "I said that's fine. That's what they should be doing."

The boys' mother, Mrs. Tsarnaeva, said Tamerlan was defiant in his meetings with FBI officials. "I am in a country that gives me the right to read whatever I want and watch whatever I want,'" Mrs. Tsarnaeva recalled her son saying. "He was even trying to get the FBI [agent] to convert to Islam."

"Our sudden outbreak of Russophilia can be traced to one simple fact about the Boston investigation. In 2011, “a foreign government asked the FBI for information about Tamerlan Tsarnaev,” who’d arrived in the United States nearly 10 years earlier. (His brother arrived a little later.)

The bureau complied. Finding nothing and later flummoxed by an airline’s clerical error, the United States allowed Tsarnaev to take a lengthy trip to Russia.

On Monday, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul wrote a letter to Senate leaders asking why “the current [immigration] system allows two individuals to immigrate to the United States from the Chechen Republic in Russia, an area known as a hotbed of Islamic extremism, who then committed acts of terrorism?”

"Fox News Channel’s coverage of the bombing at the Boston Marathon last week propelled the network to the top of the cable rankings for the first time in nearly a decade.

In both total day and primetime for the week of April 15-April 21, the News Corp-owned news network pulled ahead of usually top-ranked USA Network. Excluding election coverage last year, the last time Fox News was in the top position was August 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast.

In primetime, FNC garnered 2.874 million viewers on average for the week compared with No. 2 USA’s 2.621 million. CNN also climbed the cable ladder to finish No. 3 with 1.985 million viewers overall on average. History Channel was in fourth with 1.937 million viewers and A&E was fifth with 1.928 million."

BBBWHAHAHAAH! Oldman you eat scat and bark at the moon, dude!

The Russians called this one from an early date. They have had to deal with these Chechyan scumbags for many years.

They flag the older brother when he came to Russia for 6 months and became radicalized.

Lets see: NO visible means of support, the guy is pictured wearing $700 shoes, driving a late model Mercedes Benz, latest smartphone, etc.

Leaves a wife and child travels to Russia for 6 months. All on a 26 year old with no apparent job.

How??? And he comes back a semi expert bomb maker. DUH!!!

Same as Okla City, McNicol and McVeigh were BUMS with NO MONEY. They couldn't blow up a BALLOON!!!

McNicol goes to the Phillipines to study under AlQ master bomb maker, comes back 6 months later and they blow up the Murray Bldg and kill 267.
