    Re: Boston PD Arrest 3 More Suspects in Bombing Plot -- Uh-oh!

    today, ap:

    Russian agents placed the elder Boston bombing suspect under surveillance during a six-month visit to southern Russia last year, then scrambled to find him when he suddenly disappeared after police killed a Canadian jihadist, a security official told The Associated Press.

    The security official with the Anti-Extremism Center, a federal agency under Russia's Interior Ministry, confirmed the Russians shared their concerns. He told the AP that Russian agents were watching Tsarnaev, and that they searched for him when he disappeared two days after the July 2012 death of the Canadian man, who had joined the Islamic insurgency in the region. The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media.

    Security officials suspected ties between Tsarnaev and the Canadian - an ethnic Russian named William Plotnikov - according to the Novaya Gazeta newspaper, which is known for its independence and investigative reporting, and cited an unnamed official with the Anti-Extremism Center, which tracks militants. The newspaper said the men had social networking ties that brought Tsarnaev to the attention of Russian security services for the first time in late 2010.

    It certainly wouldn't be surprising if the men had met. Both were amateur boxers of roughly the same age whose families had moved from Russia to North America when they were teenagers. In recent years, both had turned to Islam and expressed radical beliefs. And both had traveled to Dagestan, a republic of some 3 million people.The AP could not independently confirm whether the two men had communicated on social networks or crossed paths either in Dagestan or in Toronto, where Plotnikov had lived with his parents and where Tsarnaev had an aunt.

    Plotnikov had been detained in Dagestan in December 2010 on suspicion of having ties to the militants and during his interrogation was forced to hand over a list of social networking friends from the United States and Canada who like him had once lived in Russia, Novaya Gazeta reported. The newspaper said Tsarnaev's name was on that list, bringing him for the first time to the attention of Russia's secret services.

    The official with Russia's Anti-Extremism Center said Tsarnaev was filmed attending a mosque in Makhachkala whose worshippers adhere to a more radical strain of Islam. The official would give no further details about what the Russian security services knew about Tsarnaev's activities in Dagestan or about any possible connection to Plotnikov.

    Novaya Gazeta said Tsarnaev was also seen in the company of Mahmud Nidal - a man who was both Palestinian and Kumyk, one of the dozens of ethnic groups living in Dagestan - and who was believed to have ties to Islamic militants in the southern Russian region.

    Shortly after Plotnikov identified Tsarnaev during his December 2010 interrogation, the Russian secret services, the FSB, studied Tsarnaev's pages on social networking sites and asked the FBI for more information, the Russian newspaper said.The FBI has acknowledged receiving the request.

    We are not discussing how I see it, but how the government sees it. The government has laws, procedures, and protections it has to abide by. To call t terrorism, you have to make assumptions based on not enough evidence. If it makes you feel better to call it terrorism, feel free. It will mot bother me in the least. I expect the government however to be more exact, precise, and to follow what it has written as law. A government that can just declare any one a terrorist would be a bad thing.

    And what policies would those be specifically?

    IMO trying to cover up for a terrorist makes you a terrorist and these guys should be charged with terrorism.

    another dhs screwup

    One of three college students arrested Wednesday in the Boston Marathon bombings case was allowed to return to the United States from Kazakhstan in January despite not having a valid student visa, a federal law enforcement official told The Associated Press. Authorities charged the student -- a friend and classmate of one of the men accused of setting off the deadly explosions -- with helping after the attacks to remove a laptop and backpack from the bombing suspect's dormitory room before the FBI searched it.

    The government acknowledged that U.S. Customs and Border Protection was unaware that the student was no longer in school when he was let back into the United States. The disclosure was another instance of possible lapses by the federal government in the months before the Boston bombings. The Obama administration earlier this week announced an internal review of how U.S. intelligence agencies shared sensitive information and whether the government could have disrupted the attack. Republicans in Congress have promised oversight hearings starting next week.

    Federal authorities on Wednesday arrested three college friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a bombing suspect, including Azamat Tazhayakov, a friend and classmate of Tsarnaev's at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Tazhayakov left the U.S. in December and returned Jan. 20. But in early January, his student-visa status was terminated because he was academically dismissed from the university, the official told the AP. The law enforcement official said information about Tazhayakov's status was in the Homeland Security Department's Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, called SEVIS, when Tazhayakov arrived in New York in January.

    The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to discuss details of Tazhayakov's immigration history.

    DHS spokesman Peter Boogaard said when Tazhayakov arrived on Jan. 20, Customs and Border Protection officials had not been notified that he was no longer a student. Boogaard said in an emailed statement that DHS had recently reformed the student visa system to ensure that CBP would have access to all relevant student visa information. Later, however, he clarified the statement to say that the reform was ongoing.

    I just heard that one of these students visa's had expired, left America and the Obama's Customs and Immigration allowed him to reenter the USA back in January with no valid visa.

    It seems the current administration isn't enforcing our immigration laws. I wonder who else have been allowed in to America without a visa ?

    Boston Police Take 3 More Suspects Into Custody For Marathon Bombings

    The three suspects being held by the police are college students who allegedly helped Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after the double bombing near the finish line on April 15, the Boston Globe reported.

    Tsarnaev, 19, was a student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed during a shootout and attempted getaway from police in Watertown four days after the Marathon bombing.

    The Globe reports that the new suspects are allegedly linked to Dzhokhar, who's in a Massachusetts prison hospital and charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

    The attack at the Marathon killed three people and wounded more than 260 others.

    This is a developing story -- check back for updates.
    Clumsy assed college ****-ups. Gotta laugh at those who were damned determined that this was all absolutely, without a doubt orchestrated by highly skilled, state or organizational sponsored terrorism.
