Russia warned U.S about elder bombing suspect

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The Russians tipped us off about the older bombing suspect not once, but twice.

A FBI led joint terrorism task force in Boston was alerted about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in early 2011.

Months later, officials in Russia contacted CIA and made a second, identical plea.

The White House said today that federal agents thoroughly investigated the elder Tsarnaev and found no cause for concern.

It’s not known if either alert from Russia could have prevented the bombing in Boston.

    I will speak my mind, even if it means Corrupt Politicians want me dead for it.

    Why is it that whenever our Agencies and Politicians fail to do their jobs properly, that they are not held accountable and Fired? Does anyone know why? Can anyone give me that answer? Why isn't anyone at all held responsible for allowing Suspected Terrorists into our Country time after time? This is getting old like a broken record, and I'm sick of it. When the rest of us fuck up at our jobs, we get Fired, but no not our Agents or Politicians.
