This story just keeps getting weirder.

The FBI admitted Friday they interviewed the now-deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev two years ago and failed to find any incriminating information about him.

As first reported by CBS News correspondent Bob Orr, the FBI interviewed Tsarnaev, the elder brother of at-large bombing suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, at the request of a foreign government to see if he had any extremist ties, but failed to find any linkage.

Both Tsarnaev brothers were legal permanent residents of the U.S. There is no evidence so far that either brother received any tactical training.

Other than building at least seven bombs that worked, and one brother escaping from 15 police officers in a firefight, sure, there’s no evidence of tactical training. Nothing to see here at all.

Want some more weird? Ok, here ya go.

Although the FBI initially denied contacting Tsarnaev, the brothers’ mother said they had in an interview with Russia Today.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva said her son got involved in “religious politics” about five years ago, and never told her he was involved in “jihad.”

She insisted the FBI “knew what he was doing on Skype” and that they counseled him “every step of the way.”

The mom says that the FBI told her that her son was an “extremist leader” and that they were “afraid of him.”

And yet he became a naturalized US citizen.

We're in the very best of hands.

We obviously know what's important, after all...the dangerous extremist robbed a convenience store, but he didn't get to buy a Big Gulp.

We want to throw open the floodgates of immigration...because we are so good at checking the people we have coming in now. Although, we might want to have the geniuses at the TSA do background checks for kitchen appliances.

They can racially profile all the privileged white guys. And Catholics.

For We The People of "the great unwashed" this is a very important learning moment "Boston(Massacre) Marathon Bombing":
1)America's refugee program is in shambles.
2) The larger Immigration Issue is in total disarray, one might say "a joke!"
3) USCIS and its companion departments are proven to be totally inept at complying and enforcing rules, regulations, norms and procedures already on the books, preponderance of evidence in both Tsarnaev's cases and millions of others just like them.
4) The USCIS's HB-5, and HB-1 visa program (where anybody in the world with a spare $250,000 to $1 million dollars can buy American citizenship)is the world's most fraudulent.
5) Any billionaire (Saudi) in the world can be an American citizen AND have a seat on any world financial organization (NYSE, et al).
6) AnyJihadist sponsoring individual or organization, can establish in all USA's states, centers of learning and cultural programs disseminating Islamic tenets and its corollary activites.
7) Spread of Islam and Islamic training centers across the USA is a well documented and known phenomenon.
Pray. Amen. Honor killings are at epidemic proportions as are abortions. Next, a Caliphate?

The above topic is why we are going to lose the war. Reading the Koran, and following Muhammad is not extreme.

The only extremism within Islam are the Apostates.

The overarching plan is to keep bringing chaotically violent muslims into America and the West in general in order to bring about a permanent police state

Personally, I want the Caliphate to form again. Why? Because then all muslims, regardless of race, will have a deportation destination.

REMOVE KEBOB!!!

And yet, we don't need to throw open the floodgates, they are already wide open. Some call it the southern border.
