Rep. Peter King (R-NY) Discussing Bombing Suspects Tamerlan & Dzhokhar Tsarnaev … “Very Difficult to Believe” Boston Bombing Suspects Acted Alone
Political Correctness Kills …
Rep. Peter King (R-NY), who sits on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” that he did not believe the suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, acted alone in the Boston Marathon bombing. Peter King went on to say, that “It’s very difficult to believe these two could have carried out this level of attack with this level of sophistication” and precision acting by themselves.” King also stated that he hoped to highlight FBI agents’ inability or unwillingness to interview members of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s mosque after a tip from Russian intelligence that he might have become radicalized and why “political correctness” of not wanting to interview anyone from the mosque.
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the former chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said Sunday that he did not believe the suspects in last month’s Boston Marathon bombings acted alone.
“It’s very difficult to believe these two could have carried out this level of attack with this level of sophistication and precision acting by themselves, without training overseas or having at least facilitators at home,” King said.
King, who sits on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said it appeared from the effectiveness of the dual bombings that Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, had some help.
“Because of political correctness, I understand that the FBI was not able to talk to anyone in the mosque to find out whether or not if there were any conditions to find out if he was radicalized,” King said.
There should be a way to correct this. The problem (officials) will tell you is there are 850,000 student visas, and there’s an I-20 form which certifies whether or not that person is still in compliance with the requirements of the visa,” said King, R-New York. “And unfortunately, it does not appear the technology is there to marry them up, and I think it’s inexcusable.”
Last week, the Department of Homeland Security began ordering U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents to verify, “effective immediately,” that every foreign student who wants to enter the United States has a valid student visa.
