Feds Stayed Mum on Tsarnaev Threat

May 9th, 2013 - 1:50 pm

Your Department of Homeland Security hard at work, uh, securitamatizing the homeland and stuff:

Boston and Massachusetts law enforcement officials confirmed Thursday that federal agents left them in the dark on the growing warning signs about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the run-up to the Boston Marathon bombing.

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, in testimony on Capitol Hill, said his officers on a joint terrorism task force were never told about an explicit warning from the Russian government or about Tsarnaev’s travel to the Chechnya region last year. Davis said he would have liked to have known about that activity, and that it “absolutely” would have merited a second look at Tsarnaev.

Davis and Massachusetts homeland security official Kurt Schwartz testified that their officers were not looped in on Tsarnaev until after the bombing.

“At no time prior to the bombings did any member of the Massachusetts State Police or the fusion center have any information or knowledge about the Tsarnaev brothers,” Schwartz said.

The Russians knew. Maybe the Saudis knew. DHS knew something, but did nothing.

Heads should roll for this one, but good luck with that.

DHS knew something? Napolitano has no background, no qualifications, for this, and they put her in charge. What did they think would happen?

Obama has no background, no qualifications, for this, and voters put him in charge. What did they think would happen?

Clinton has no background, no qualifications, for SecState, and they put her in charge. What did they think would happen?

I've got a super idea: let's put the federal government in charge of our healthcare, surely they'll be competent at that, right?

Steve, nothing since Thursday? Not even Friday night videos? No announcement of time off? Does Helen Smith need to stop by your house to check on you? Hope you're okay. Worried. @,@

What are they complaining about? They know how much money and power they are going to get out of this attack.

They should be thanking the DHS. Ungrateful wretches.

And while we are at it, why not give DHS complete control over immigration? Heck, let's give it to them without any oversight required! I think we've hit on something here.
