It seems One of the Boston Bombers was on the FBI radar in 2011.

FBI agents interviewed bombing suspect in 2011

The FBI did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign, and those results were provided to the foreign government in the summer of 2011," the FBI's statement said. "The FBI requested but did not receive more specific or additional information from the foreign government."

Well, last Monday proved that theory wrong.

U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas and chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said Friday that information that Tsarnaev had been interviewed by the FBI in the past was disturbing.
"It's new information to me and it's very disturbing that he's on the FBI's radar screen," McCaul told CNN's Erin Burnett.

What do you people want? If he did nothing other than state his opinion, what the hell is the FBI supposed to do?

This has been discussed a half dozen times already here on C-D. All indications are that the Russians were concerned about the guy for their own reasons, and that after a thorough investigation no evidence of anything actionable was found. There are so many people whining about the lock-down on Friday. Can you imagine how much they would howl if the absence of evidence against someone wouldn't be enough to stop an investigation of unsubstantiated accusations?

McCaul is just trying to bolster his campaign donations from paranoid right-wingers. I wouldn't give his concerns any credence. Until he produces proof that there was evidence of wrong-doing to be found, back in 2011, then he's doing nothing other than blowing smoke.

There's a natural tendency amongst a certain group of people to rush to judgment ... before all the facts of a situation are known. We see that in the OP, here. The investigation is ongoing. Though I don't agree with the tactics of RWNJ legislators looking to score points or curry favor amongst the ilk which supports them, we don't have to join-in the charade here. The critics need to give it time. Let the investigation run its course. We will eventually learn what did or didn't happen.

Federal Bureau of Investiagtion... We just had a Senator fillibuster until he got clarification that the Executive branch had no intention to use drones on American citizens. What are we spending Billions on?

If the Federal Govenrnment have no problem violating constitutional rights durring and post bombing...why would not monitoring an individual that has been suggested...that Russia alerted the Feds to?

Monitoring is not unlawful. there are hundreds of people being monitored right now for a number various reasons. The Constitution says that probable cause and a warrant are needed to do so, but it is lawful and constitutional.

We have the TSA patting-down a little girl in a wheel chair on her way to DisneyWorld...yet turn the radar off on someone traveling to Chechenia with warnings...

Are you OK with that?

My, point, dear readers, is that the FBI interviewed this guy in 2011, and dropped him from their radar, after Russia warned us about him. Ergo, they screwed up.

And...I am about as far away from being a RWNJ, or a RWer as one could get.

If he did nothing other than state his opinion, what the hell is the FBI supposed to do. Violate his liberties? Unless, of course, you have evidence he committed a crime when the FBI investigated him. They did not screw up nothing. Yes, Carter Stamp you are doing nothing more than playing partisan politics with this. I forget, being Muslim, for many of youm is a crime.

It wasn't for "being a Muslim" smart guy. Read the article.

An FBI official said agents interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 at the request of the Russian government.

"The request stated that it was based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and that he 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,"

That is not crime and unless they have evidence other than hearsay, him joining a "group" means nothing. You conservatives are just as dense as liberals.

Are you suggesting we arrest people based upon their beliefs now?
