The Russians secretly recorded in a wiretap Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussing Jihad with his mother Zubeidat Tsarnaeva. Russian authorities had previously turned over information to the United States that it had on Tamerlan and his mother. The Tsarnaevs are ethnic Chechens who emigrated from southern Russia to the Boston area over the past 11 years. However, they did not turn over this wiretap. Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva were on US terror watch lists and questioned by the FBI, yet on May 1, 2013 Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhohkar, detonated two homemade bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 260. The question remains, why did Vladmir Putin and the Russians not provide this piece of information when warning the US about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s extremists actions? We will never know if the FBI would have acted on such intel or whether it would have prevented the bombing. Then again, we do not know if it would have either.
Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call.
In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.
The conversations are significant because, had they been revealed earlier, they might have been enough evidence for the FBI to initiate a more thorough investigation of the Tsarnaev family.
As it was, Russian authorities told the FBI only that they had concerns that Tamerlan and his mother were religious extremists. With no additional information, the FBI conducted a limited inquiry and closed the case in June 2011.
In early 2011, the Russian FSB internal security service intercepted a conversation between Tamerlan and his mother vaguely discussing jihad, according to U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation with reporters.
The two discussed the possibility of Tamerlan going to Palestine, but he told his mother he didn’t speak the language there, according to the officials, who reviewed the information Russia shared with the U.S.
As reported at CBS News, in another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case.
From the Washington Times comes this feel good story of the day, a United States female sailor beats of rapist Dubai bus driver pig to a pulp as he attempted to rape her at knife point. Just another example of a loser rapist Dubai scumbag taking a knife to an American a$$ kicking.
An off-duty U.S. navy sailor wrestled a Dubai bus driver to the ground and beat him into submission after he tried to rape her at knifepoint on Jan. 19, a courtroom heard Wednesday.
The woman, 28, was on 24-hour shore leave in Dubai when she was attacked by a bus driver after he picked her up from the Mall of the Emirates shopping center.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: “All We Do Is Kill Arabs On International Television, That Might Have Something To Do With Jihad”
More blaming of America by Leftist MSNBC’s Chris Matthews …
Chris Matthews went on his liberal rant on ‘Hard Ball’, insisting that he opposes intervention into Syria and said that America spends too much of its energy intervening in Arab nations. “It’s all we do is kill Arabs on international television,” he opined. “I think that might have something to do with Jihad.” Huh, so once again we have the LEFT blaming America for radical Islam and their killing of infidels. According to Matthews, we have something to do with “jihad”. It is truly sad that those on the LEFT actually believe this nonsense. So I guess Matthews believes America was responsible for 9-11 as well?
Matthews confessed he is, as a “Vietnam guy,” often suspicious of intervention in foreign conflicts. “As horrible as that may be,” he added.
“As long as Syrians are fighting Syrians, that’s better than us fighting Syrians,” Matthews continued. “If we don’t stop killing Arabs on international television one of these days. It’s all we do is kill Arabs on international television.”
“I think that might have something to do with Jihad,” he concluded. “Just guessing.”
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, April 24, 2013 – Great Cooperation Between Canada and USA to Avert Terror Attack on Train
- Canada averts a terror attack on a train that travels between Canada and the USA
Alleged ‘al-Qaeda-supported’ plot against Via Passenger Train from Toronto to New York Foiled … Two Individuals Arrested
EVIL TWARTED AGAIN, THIS TIME NORTH OF THE BORDER IN CANADA …
Two men have been arrested and are accused of conspiring to carry out an “al-Qaeda supported” attack targeting a Via passenger train in the Greater Toronto Area. The two would be terrorists are Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, of Montreal, and Raed Jaser, 35, from Toronto. RCMP officials said the two accused were plotting to derail a Via passenger train. VIA is Canada’s equivalent of Amtrak and operates passenger rail services on track owned primarily by Canadian National Railway Co. According to a Reuters report, U.S. law enforcement and national security sources said the alleged plot targeted a rail line between Toronto and New York.
Police say they have arrested two men accused of conspiring to carry out an “al-Qaeda supported” attack targeting a Via passenger train in the Greater Toronto Area, following a cross-border investigation that involved Canadian and American law enforcement.
In a press conference that followed a report by CBC’s Greg Weston, police named the two accused as Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, of Montreal, and Raed Jaser, 35, from Toronto. They have been charged with conspiracy to carry out a terrorist attack and “conspiring to murder persons unknown for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group.”
RCMP officials said the two accused were plotting to derail a passenger train. Jennifer Strachan, chief superintendent of RCMP criminal operations in the province of Ontario, said the two suspects watched trains and railways in the Greater Toronto Area.
“We are alleging that these two individuals took steps and conducted activities to initiate a terrorist attack,” she told reporters.
Today, the RCMP arrested two individuals and charged them with conspiring to carry out a terrorist attack against a VIA passenger train. The accused have been charged under sections 248, 235 (1), 83.2, 83.18, 83.21 of the Criminal Code of Canada. As a result of extensive collaborative efforts, the RCMP was able to disrupt the threat early. While the RCMP believed that these individuals had the capacity and intent to carry out these criminal acts, there was no imminent threat to the general public, rail employees, train passengers or infrastructure.
The two accused, Chiheb ESSEGHAIER and Raed JASER, who live in the Montreal and Toronto area were conspiring to carry out a terrorist attack against a VIA passenger train. Charges include conspiring to carry out an attack against, and conspiring to murder persons unknown for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group.
As Legal Insurrection reminds us of President Barack Obama’s false rhetoric … I guess it depends on what the meaning of “decimated” is. Where is the Obama propaganda media criticizing him for his “declaring victory” over ‘al-Qaeda, when its obvious nothing could be further from the truth.
Good grief, these friggin Islamist terrorist are like cockroaches.
God Bless the Brits … Runners in Sunday’s London Marathon Show Support For the City of Boston, the Victims of the Bombing at the Boston Marathon
A special shout out to our friend across The Pond. God bless the Brits and their much appreciated remembrance and support honoring of the city of Boston, the victims of the Boston bombing and the Boston Marathon. The London Marathon took place Sunday without incident, thank God. As reported at the NY Times, 6 days and 3,300 miles from the bombings in Boston, the London Marathon was held Sunday, but it was obvious there was a connection between the two events as the people of London paid respect to those affected and the victims in the Boston marathon bombings. It is a blessing how sports can bring people and countries together. If the terrorists ever thought they would alter our lives and make us live in fear, they could never have been more wrong. You have only made us stronger.
A special shout out back to the Brits for the kindness and support you showed the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings
At the start of the race, the runner at the London Marathon paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon attack by observing a 30-second moment if silence before the elite men’s race and mass start. As one individual tweeted, over 37,000 runners and all of the spectators bowed their heads in collective absolute silence (see video here) as they paid respect to the victims and Boston. Simply breathtaking and respectful. The London Marathon officials also pledged to donate £2 for every finisher to The One Fund Boston, a charity set up to help victims of the Boston marathon bombings. By race end this will probably amount to about £70,000 – over $100,000, that will be raised.
London Marathon Pays respect to the Victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings
Geoff Wightman, the event commentator, announced over loudspeakers before the half-minute silence:
“Marathon-running is a global sport. It unites runners and supporters on every continent in pursuit of a common challenge and in the spirit of friendship and fellowship.
“This week the world marathon family was shocked and saddened by the events at the Boston Marathon. In a few moments a whistle will sound and we will join together in silence to remember our friends and colleagues for whom a day of joy turned into a day of sadness.
“Let us now show our respect and support for the victims of the tragedy in Boston.”
Our favorite for obvious reasons … fellow UK Monkeys telling terrorist exactly what they can do
More from Buzz Feed, many of the runners in the London Marathon dedicated their race to the victims of the Boston bombing attack and showed that they were “British Strong” in coming out for the London Marathon and do our bit and show a bit of solidarity and also show that we’re not going to cower with fear to terrorism.
A number of athletes dedicated their races to those affected by the Boston attack. American wheelchair racer Tatyana McFadden was in her hotel room after winning the women’s race when the two bombs went off on the finish line.
“I’ll be carrying them in my heart as I am running through the course in London,” she said. “It’s important as an elite runner with a disability to be a role model for those who are newly injured and it’s important for me to be an advocate for those. I’ve lived with many challenges in my life, every single day and so I know something of what it’s like.”
Another competitor was former England cricket captain Andrew Strauss, who said he wanted to represent the people of Boston and prove that “terrorism doesn’t work”. He told the BBC:
“It’s a horrendous tragedy and I think this is an opportunity for all of us that are involved in the London Marathon to come out and do our bit and show a bit of solidarity and also show that we’re not going to cower with fear.”
FBI Looking for 12 Strong Islamic/Muslim Sleeper Cell Linked to Boston Bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev … “We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone”
From the UK Daily Mirror, the FBI is looking for a 12 strong terrorist “sleeper cell” linked to the Boston marathon bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Authorities believe that the two brothers were specially trained to carry out the attacks. Sources close to the investigation said, “We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated.” It is true that this terror attack and the events that took place after the bombing of the Boston marathon seemed too sophisticated. When Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were confronted by police then had a surplus of explosive devises and grenades to launch at authorities. It would have almost seemed like there were more soft targets that they were going to attack. So with all this being known, is it too quick for everyone to give the all clear?
Were they part of a larger “Sleeper Terror Cell”
The FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist “sleeper cell” linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.
Police believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack.
More than 1,000 FBI operatives were last night working to track down the cell and arrested a man and two women 60 miles from Boston in the hours before Dzhokhar’s dramatic capture after a bloody shootout on Friday.
A source close to the investigation said: “We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.
“They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come.”
However, Jihad Watch appropriately asks, how are we supposed to find a sleeper cell when the Obama Administration has now placed off-limits any investigation of the beliefs, motives and goals of jihad terrorists? Atlas Shruggs asks, did the soon to be deported Saudi national, Al-Harbi know these jihadists? We ask, why does it seem like we care more about being “politically correct” than we do stopping terrorism? How are we supposed to prevent terrorism if we cannot use all resources possible to comprehend the motives and goals of Islamists? Maybe Obama’s next political move will be a “pressure cooker” back ground check? Seriously, if we are not going to have a president who is serious about terrorism, we will always be reacting to terrorism, never being proactive.
So who wants to still believe that there might not be a “public safety issue” here to have an exception to Miranda here? This terrorist will be provided all of the rights provided under the US Constitution. Then he will be tried under the US Constitution, then he will, God willing we do not have a Casey Anthony “Ship of Fools” jury, be found guilty and sentenced to death.
Unreal … Two Border Patrol Agents Convicted Friday in Federal Court in Tucson, AZ of Violating the Civil Rights of 4 Mexican Drug Smugglers
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AMERICA I GRE UP IN?
As reported at the Arizona Daily Star, two border agents were convicted on Friday by a jury in Federal court in Tucson, AZ of violating the civil rights of four drug smugglers. Yes, you heard that correct. Let me repeat this, two border agents were convicted of violating the civil rights of four Mexican drug smugglers. WTF is going on in this country!!! Seriously, the US government fails to protect the borders from illegal immigrants and drug smugglers from entering into our country, but we prosecute the very agents who do? We are not allowed to call these people illegals, but we allow Mexican drug smugglers to have civil rights. Not only are they in the United States illegally, they are in it with illegal drugs with the intention of selling such illegal substances. But they got civil rights. Unreal.
25 year old Dario Castillo and 31 year old Ramon Zuniga were convicted on four counts of “civil-rights deprivation under color of law”. Here is a rather interesting part od the case and prosecution, even though there were more agents at the scene, only Zuniga and Castillo committed the civil-rights violations. Hmm? Does anyone else just find this all a bit whacked, seeing that we have a federal policy of not going after illegals and a push to not even call them illegals? So what would these folks have been considered … undocumented, not legal substance carrying, lost in the desert individuals?
After deliberating most of the morning, about 3 p.m. the jury convicted Dario Castillo, 25, and Ramon Zuniga, 31, of four counts of civil-rights deprivation under color of law. Rather than arrest four Mexican smugglers intercepted the night of Nov. 12, 2008, the agents made them strip off their socks, shoes and jackets, forced some of them to eat marijuana and ordered them to flee into the desert.
The convictions are misdemeanors for Zuniga, but felonies for Castillo because the jury found he set fire to the smugglers’ belongings.
The agents were found not guilty of a conspiracy charge.
Castillo was also found not guilty of tampering with a witness, the most serious charge.
A felony conviction for deprivation of rights under color of law carries a maximum penalty of 10 years and/or a $250,000 fine; a misdemeanor conviction under the statute carries a penalty of one year and/or a $100,000 fine.
U.S. Attorney for Arizona John Leonardo said in a written statement,”This verdict sends a clear message that abuse of authority by federal law enforcement officers will not be tolerated in our society.” Really, I take it in another way. No one believes in civil rights for Americans more than I; however, I in no way believe they should be afforded to people in my country illegally and committing crimes. Who finds this a bit offensive when we have a U.S. government, Republican, Democrat & Independent alike, who every day try to strip away out US Constitutional and Civil rights, yet Mexican drug smugglers are protected? Our government is trying to strip away our Second Amendment right to bare arms, yet these people have a right to be in our country illegally with illegal drugs and have civil rights. What has happened to the America I grew up in?
Jordan Islamist Leader Praises Boston Marathon Bombing … “Happy to See the Horror in America” after the Explosions in Boston, MA
Don’t ever forget this America … as you grieve, as you try and rationalize what happened yesterday at the Boston Marathon as innocent people were killed, inured, had arms and legs blown off by two bomb explosions. As you are saddened by the events and wonder how such a thing could happen … other are relishing in the blood spilled. Stop trying to rationalize terrorism and people who just hate us because we are not them. Sadly, as Weasel Zippers states, this is an opinion that is held by much of the Muslim world. At some point, Muslims and Muslim leaders in this country are going to have to come forward and stand with America, the country they live in and against terrorism and radical Islam … instead of worrying out any backlash against them.
AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — The head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group says he’s “happy to see the horror in America” after the explosions in Boston.
“American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaeda-linked plot to attack US and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.
“Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,” he said early Tuesday
Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of this senseless act of terror and to their families and friends
