WASHINGTON — The Russian government declined to provide the F.B.I. with information about one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects that would most likely have led to more extensive scrutiny of him at least two years before the attack, according to an inspector general’s reportReally? Well what did the Russians say?
Russian officials had told the F.B.I. in 2011 that the suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, “was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer” and that Mr. Tsarnaev “had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United States for travel to the country’s region to join unspecified underground groups.”Oh I see. Post 9-11 officials saw a report that said Tsarnaev was a follower of "radical Islam" just like the fellows that flew a few airplanes into buildings in NY. and that he had plans to "join unspecified underground groups". And what did the FBI do with this information? Nothing. You would think an alien applying for or having requested asylum would, after having been named as a "strong believer" in "radial Islam" would be sent to the nearest international airport and deported. Nope. The US authorities, so stuck on fucking with Russia does the following:
At the time, American law enforcement officials believed that Mr. Tsarnaev posed a far greater threat to Russia.Ohh! I see. So the US authorities are OK with persons with "strong beliefs" in "radical Islam", like the fellows who flew planes into buildings in NYC, freely roaming around the US so long as they present a "far greater threat to Russia". Seriously. Read that again! Nobody thought to put that fellow on the earliest available flight back to Russia or Chechnya on the hypothesis that this "strong believer" in "radical Islam" wouldn't even think about doing anything in the United States. Seriously. And now the US authorities want to blame Russia for not doing the Job that the US authorities were supposed to do themselves. This same report "exonerates" the FBI, because their failure, as well as DHS and INS to deport an alien reported to be a "strong believer" in "radical Islam", like the fellows who flew planes into buildings in NYC, because Russia didn't do their jobs for them. This is passing the buck of the worst kind and an insult to the victims.
