Ball dropped: CIA wanted Boston bomber put on terrorist watch list

April 24, 2013

Someone needs to answer for this. That hasn’t been this administration’s strong suit, in large part thanks to a compliant press. Perhaps they’ll one day get over their love affair and get back to doing their jobs.

The CIA asked the main U.S. counterterrorism agency to add the name of one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers to a watch list more than a year before the attack, according to U.S. officials.

The new disclosure suggests that the U.S. government may have had more reason than previously known to scrutinize Tsarnaev in the months leading up to the bombings in Boston. It also raises questions as to why U.S. authorities didn’t flag his return to the country after a seven-month trip to Russia last year.
