I mean you spend $8 billion and change a year and this is what you get? The FBI missed the 9-11 plot after being tipped, Nidal Malik Hasan at Ft. Hood, Carlos Bledso in Littlerock, Arkansas, and now yet another terrorist has been sitting right under their noses and slipped through the cracks.
Turns out they even interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev more than a year before the April 15 Boston Marathon Bombing.
Big Government [emphasis ours]:
Late Friday, the FBI finally admitted that it had interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older Boston Marathon bombing suspect who was killed by police early Friday morning. The FBI reversed itself after the Tsarnaevs’ mother, Zubeidat, told Russia Today that her son had been monitored by the FBI on Skype, and actually spoke with him “every step of the way.” She said, “They used to come [to our] home, they used to talk to me … they were telling me that he was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him. They told me whatever information he is getting, he gets from these extremist sites… they were controlling him, they were controlling his every step…and now they say that this is a terrorist act!”
Is this why President Obama thanked Vladimir Putin yesterday for Russia’s help in apprehending the brother bombers?
The Cable [emphasis ours]:
President Barack Obama spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday evening and thanked the Russian leader for unspecified cooperation in the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings.
As law enforcement officials surrounded the Watertown location where 19 year old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was suspected to be hiding, the White House released a read out of the Obama-Putin phone call, which referenced the United States and Russia working together on the Boston bombing issue.
Why would the White House release such a statement just as the smoke is clearing on the most devastating terrorist act since 9-11?
Well, following the established premise that Obama’s greatest strength is covering up for his own incompetency, probably a major story is about to break on just how miserably DHS and the FBI muddled this investigation.
How is it that the Feds have had this guy on their radar for more than two years, yet had to go to the public for help to identify him and his brother? Huh?
They were following him on Skype? No word yet whether or not they “Liked” each other on FaceBook.
Seriously, if this is true, it is arguably an impeachable offense for both Eric Holder and Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano.
President Obama spent his entire 2012 campaign trying to convince the American people that the War on Terror was all but won under his administration. He was aided by dolts in the media like Candy Crowley, who all but jumped up and yelled VOTE OBAMA during the second debate.
It was this kind of political self-service that got four Americans killed in Benghazi. If Obama wants something to be over, it is over. At least in the minds of his scam-bots.
And it is most likely this same reprehensible attitude that allowed the horror in Boston on April 15 to be carried out.
