There seems no doubt the Tsarnaev brothers were on the CIA’s radar as possible terrorists, long before the Boston Marathon bombing. Still, on that basis, I cannot say whether the CIA’s failure to thwart the eventual terrorist attack resulted from its failure to follow through on those reports which preceded the bombing; or whether the failure to act was consistent with agency guidelines.

What I do know is this: in all of the major media reports which cite the CIA’s advance knowledge the brothers Tsarnaev might be up to no good, including the NewYorkTimes; I did not read that the daughter of  former CIA official Graham Fuller was once married to the uncle of the two men – you know, the one who called his nephews “losers” – and, in fact, once lived in his house. That is, until I turned to the news from another country. MailOnline

But you don’t have to take anyone else’s word for this connection; Mr. Fuller himself confirmed these facts to Al-Monitor, although, at the same time he verified the connection, he characterized rumors of a connection are “absurd.” Id.

Naturally, evidence of a relationship does not determine ipso facto cause and effect. That said; when it comes to asking ‘what did we know and when did we know it’ with respect to the Boston Marathon bombing; even the liberal bastion FireDogLake has begun asking questions. Is the Government Covering Something Up in the Boston Case?

    “Never ascribe to malice that which is properly explained by incompetence” Napolean Bonaparte

    That quote describe in detain the alphabet soup of the FBI, CIA, and Homeland security in this case. They were fantastic at violating everyone’s rights to private property and demonstrating an active police state, but incompetent at preventing the obvious.
    There were several interesting implications from the first 48 hour controversy about the bombers. The first was the claim by the media, the left wing, and even conservative politicians that the bombers were likely “home grown”. That means that the problems with human assets that George Tenet complained about after 911 have been solved, and we have infiltrated the major terrorist networks. (I suppose you could imply that Obama is paying the networks and governments not to attack while he is in office but I’m not quite that sinister). I think it would be safe to say that George Bush managed to correct the problems with human intelligence during his tenure. Second, it appeared that Homeland security in it’s role as information collector for safety of US citizens has failed in it’s original purpose. Clearly, Homeland security, FBI, Immigration, and the CIA were NOT on the same page.

    The question shouldn’t be IF the trillions of dollars spent on this wasn’t squandered on incompetence, but HOW? That answer lies within: 1) Obama’s need to ‘repay’ his out of country donor base, the Saudi’s. 2) The pay as you play Chicago politics of taking taxpayer funds and recycling to campaign funds (see planned parenthood for reference) 3) Political attacks on conservatives that require the attention of these agencies to prevent the ‘christian threat’. 4) Ongoing attempts to destroy the second amendment by using federal taxpayer money to out-purchase civilians. In short, the agenda was everything EXCEPT preventing an actual attack of muslim terrorists whom were all but defeated according to Obama and his cronies.

    I’m glad I don’t live in Boston area.

      Pete: You write, “In short, the agenda was everything EXCEPT preventing an actual attack of muslim terrorists whom were all but defeated according to Obama and his cronies.” I think the kernel of truth is found here, in your appreciation of the President’s ‘see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ approach to Muslim terrorism. I believe he touted the death of OBL not to make us feel safe but only so as to divert our attention away from the ongoing campaign of terror that in many ways, as you have indicated, enriches him. ADMINISTRATOR

        I entirely agree. This isn’t government leadership, it’s administrative misdirection. Sadly, misdirection isn’t really magic, the problem isn’t going to go away.
