Russia caught bomb suspect on wiretap
Associated Press, by Eileen Sullivan & Matt Apuzzo

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 4/27/2013 5:40:17 PM

WASHINGTON — 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. The conversations

The mother could have been an accessory before the fact.

Wait a minute...didn´t the head of the DHS, Janet Incompetano, tell us categorically there was no international involvement in the Boston bombings? Of course they used up the " vile Internet movie" gambit already. Since when did becoming a member of the President´ s cabinet require the Secretary to be a member in good standing of LGBT community?

The AP reporters bought the FBI story that Russia never followed up with more information. Could it be that the FBI lost the information??
And is it now the policy of the FBI to wait for the next terror attack? (see their comment about Misha.)

Let us not forget that the FBI is under Eric Holder and hence, all employed there serve at his pleasure and ignore his orders and suggestions (wink, wink) at their professional peril.

#5, I too have noticed the strong spin all day that it´s Russia´s fault ! The FBI dropped the ball. It´s becoming obvious that we have too many bureaucrats, lawyers and national security folks whose jobs and lines of authority are overlapping each other. WHO is in charge of what? As we saw with Benghazi, we can´t even get a straight answer to that. It is now one giant game of covering behinds now. God help us that we can´t do better than this in all the years since 2001. Janet is as big a disaster as her boss...

as for the "it´s Russia´s fault" I think it is an effort to ping Russia to try to extract more about about methods. Remember how after Russia told us Tsarnaev was a worry, the FBI or whoever came back to them with wanting to know more, and Russia would not say. Would you? Would you tell the Holder Justice Dept exactly what you knew and how? And now again, Russia is being pinged, invited to defend themselves with more information than they ought to give.

Russia is steaming that the US (obama) didn´t take their tip seriously and we haven´t heard thelast of this.You may or may not like Putin who´s still a hardline KGB type who takes intelligence seriously.

But ever since Wikileaks other countries have been reluctant to help us out anyway because the don´t want their people on the front page of an American newspaper.If russia had a wikileaks,the people involved would have been hanged or poisoned by now but Obama/Clinton did absolutely nothing about it.

It is Obama´s style or his lackies to blame someone else for gross errors in his administration´s actions or rather non-actions.
In this case they are trying, through their total control of the MSM, to place the blame on Russia.

I thinke the Tsarvaev´s are a major crime/ terrorist deal over in Chechnya. Notice how the russsians tip=toe around them. This is russia of the gulags, the Lubyanka Prison downtown Moskow, the KGB, the GRU. Arresting the Tsarnev´s might set off the chechens or the Dagostanis. so they are tipping the Usa to punch their ticket, not realizing that they are dealing with

Let´s remember that Russia is a global opponent that ALWAYS gets more than they give.

You can bet they are extorting from Obaba in return for limiting their public releases off what they have shared with our agencies. And you can bet Obama will cede anything they want.

Far from jumping to conclusions the Obama administration and all its agencies are avoiding conclusions that are obvious to everyone else. Islam is responsible for most of the terror attacks in the world but not all of them. The Obama administration focuses on the exception to avoid looking at the rule!

When I read articles like this one, I get the feeling that our FBI and other federal agencies will not do a thing to follow up on any outside tips. If they were given notes with someone telling them that they are going to bomb someplace or somewhere, they would ignore it because there is no conclusive data etc. etc. You get the picture.

Our national information gathering system(s) are completely corrupt. Political correctness overcomes any reasonable choice of action. It´s as if, "we´ll let them bomb someplace or someone then we´ll try to arrest them and try them in our federal courts with all the protections of the US Constitution". And some that are dreamed up./rant

If it was known that WE had wiretapped the exact same phone conversation that the Russians did and it was a Republican president, the Dems would be talking impeachment.

I suspect the FBI ignored the warning from the Russians because there are so many. We´ve let in many thousands of people with the same ideology as these guys.

First, you´ve gotta define your terms.
Political correctness is ultimately the end of free speech.
Political power is maintained by acquiring more potential blackmail information than an opponent.
If we´re truly moving toward One World, be on the lookout for GLOBAL back room deals. The US will pay a heavy price in exchange for Russia helping us out of doodoo now, especially with Putin at the helm. Honor among thieves and all.

After remarks he made at the National Action Network conference this week and various actions on voting rights and equality he’s taken over the past several months, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is starting to wonder if Attorney General Eric Holder is “the Obama we had been hoping for.” Even though she admitted it’s not entirely fair to “separate” Holder from President Barack Obama, that’s the question the host posed to her panel Saturday morning. “I think he may be the greatest addition to the entire Obama Administration,” Fordham University’s Christina Greer told Harris-Perry, saying the “foundational work”

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

Women’s specialty clothing chain Coldwater Creek filed for bankruptcy on Friday and said it will close all of its stores around the country, including 11 in Minnesota. The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings. Coldwater Creek announced plans to seek strategic alternatives in October,

Of the plans that states have hatched for the Affordable Care Act, none has been bolder than that of Vermont, which wants to implement a single-payer health-care system, along the lines of what you might find in Britain or Canada. One government-operated system will cover all 620,000 of Vermont’s citizens. The hope is that such a system will allow Vermont to get costs down closer to Canada’s, as well as improve health by coordinating care and ensuring universal coverage. Just two small issues need to be resolved before the state gets to all systems go: First, it needs the federal

LONDON - NATO says tens of thousands of Russian troops are massed on the border with Ukraine for a potential invasion, yet Western states still lack a strategy to stop Moscow from intervening in its former Soviet neighbors. (Snip) Ultimately, Moscow´s commitment to rebuild the former USSR as its own unilateral sphere of influence may outstrip the determination of Washington and its European allies to stop it. Experts say Moscow has been infiltrating its neighbors ever more deeply, building its influence amongst security forces, government officials and politicians. That, some say, allows it to stir up instability in locations like

TMZ reported Thursday that police are in the beginning stages of investigating an alleged incident which TMZ said happened at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month. The story said the police were investigating for "possible sexual assault," but Bay Area News Group crime reporter Natalie Neysa Alund wrote that the incident is not being investigated as a sexual assault. No charges have been filed at this point.

Two new surveys clearly show that the number of people who lack health insurance in the United States has dropped — but largely not because people have enrolled in Obamacare exchanges. (Snip) What Gallup doesn´t dive into is where people are gaining insurance. That´s where the new survey from the RAND Corporation comes in. Interestingly, RAND discovered that the vast majority of new insurance coverage came not from enrollments in the Obamacare exchanges, as you might expect. Instead, it was heavily from expansions of coverage by employers and from the expansion of Medicaid — a component of the Affordable Care

While the purpose of Tuesday’s hearing was to pick through the State Department’s budget, it was Kerry’s record that came under scrutiny as his old colleagues on the committee accused him of taking on too many responsibilities with too few results. “I think you’re about to hit the trifecta,” Sen.

Offering a first glimpse of the health care needs of Americans who bought coverage through federal and state marketplaces, an analysis of the first two months of claims data shows the new enrollees are more likely to use expensive specialty drugs to treat conditions like HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C than those with job-based insurance. The sample of claims data—considered a preliminary look at whether new enrollees are sicker-than-average—also found that prescriptions for treating pain, seizures, and depression are also proportionally higher in exchange plans, according to Express Scripts, one of the nation’s largest pharmacy benefit management companies.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion.

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
