    Saudi Arabia Wrote to Warn U.S. About Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2012


    Saudi Arabia Wrote to Warn U.S. About Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2012
    Posted on May 2, 2013
    The amazing thing is that Obama’s incompetence hasn’t been exploited more.
    Check it out:

    A Saudi Arabian government official claims his country warned the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in writing in 2012, according to the Daily Mail.

    The UK’s Daily Mail claims to have confirmed the existence of the letter, sent from the Saudi Ministry of Interior to the “highest level” of the department, with this unnamed Saudi official and a DHS official speaking on condition of anonymity.

    According to these sources, the Saudis took a hard line against Tsarnaev in December 2011, when they “denied an entry visa to [him], when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca,” one month before his trip to Russia.

    They Saudi source says the country also warned Britain about Tsarnaev. They were “very specific,” he said, warning “something was going to happen in a major U.S. city.”

    While the letter allegedly named Tamerlan Tsarnaev specifically, it was a “government-to-government” letter which did not name Boston nor predict when the attack would come. The Saudi official said the letter warned the U.S. it should be “inspecting packages that came to Tsarnaev in the mail, checking for bomb-making components.”

    • Who has yet to grasp how incompetent the FBI really is? Remember Brandon Mayfield? He was arrested and it was announced to the world that the FBI's TOP fingerprint analysts had indisputably tied him to the Madrid train terror bombings. Spain told the FBI they were wrong (i.e. stupid) but the FBI persisted until Spain proved they were wrong by capturing the correct person the prints belonged to.

      Brandon Mayfield
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Brandon Mayfield (born July 15, 1966) is an American attorney in Washington County, Oregon. He is best known for being erroneously linked to the 2004 Madrid train bombings. On May 6, 2004, the FBI arrested Mayfield as a material witness in connection with the Madrid attacks, and held him for over two weeks. Mayfield was never charged, and an FBI internal review later acknowledged serious errors in their investigation. Ensuing lawsuits have resulted in a formal apology from the U.S. government and a $2 million settlement. An initial ruling declared some provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act unconstitutional, but the United States government appealed, and the ruling was overturned.

      Mayfield's case has been referenced in numerous scientific, political, and social journals.[1]
