More on ineptitude when it comes to the Boston attacks and the perpetrators:

"WASHINGTON -- Russian authorities alerted the US government not once but ``multiple’’ times over their concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- including a second time nearly a year after he was first interviewed by FBI agents in Boston -- raising new questions about whether the FBI should have focused more attention on the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, according to US senators briefed on the probe Tuesday.

The FBI has previously said it interviewed Tsarnaev in early 2011 after it was initially contacted by the Russians. After that review, the FBI has said, it determined he did not pose a threat.

In a closed briefing on Tuesday, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee learned that Russia alerted the United States about Tsarnaev in ``multiple contacts’’-- including ``at least once since October 2011,’’ said Richard Burr, a Republican of North Carolina, speaking with reporters afterward.

Senators said the briefing also revealed failures among federal agencies to share vital information about Tsarnaev, indicating, they said, that the US government still has not established a strong system to ``connect the dots’’ about would-be terrorists residing in America more than a decade after 9/11."

So much for Bush's brilliant Homeland Security Agency, sharing of info, and the "war on terror." All jokes, like everything he did. Many were sick jokes, of course...

You can tell that the constant drumbeat of anti-Muslim hatred on Faux News (and from other Rightie sources) is having an effect. They're all raving like lunatics about "Muslim terrorists" 24/7/365.
Of course the fact that our wars, occupations, acts of destruction, and support for Israel continue to provoke this cycle of terrorists violence, just as it has for Israel for the last 60 years, just goes over the Right's pointy little heads.
And you think that is an excuse to murder innocent people. Hitler had the same excuse for murdering Jews. He blamed all of Germany's problems on Jews just as the radical Muslims and other people like you blame the entire non-Muslim world for the oppression they suffer, at the hands of their own religious and political leaders. With so many people like you in the world who blame their problems and failures on others it amazes me we do not see more terrorisim. Of course people who show that kind of hatred for the world are cowards by nature any way.

Cowards or liars like you, who pretend I said something I DID NOT. There is NO excuse to murder innocent people, idiot, nor have I EVER said there was.

Don't lie about what I say again, putz.

Liberals lump all people together, and when you hate Muslim terrorists they accuse you of hating Muslims. They do that so they can stop the debate about us letting these bad guys into the country, putting them on welfare,so they have money for bomb making, showing them how to get their free phones so they can detonate bombs in front of 8 year olds.People like that have no reigion. They are crazy radicals who would kill if they were any religion, or if they had no beliefs at all.

What about the abortionists that murder over 1 million babies annually in the name of choice, including this animal Gosnell, who murdered live babies after birth. Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti abortion. But this argument holds far more credibility than your dopey reference to the crusades.

While we are all upset about the Boston Bomber there are thousands of those people here ready to do exactly what the bombers started. We need to call a stop to all immigrants entry to the US for 5 years. Sort through the ones we already have running loose, get rid of the bad ones, then bring new immigrants in.

Completely unrelated argument. You can't come from a religious background, like christianity, that murdered over a million, and pretend you can speak to peace when you've come from rage, but conveniently fail to recognize it. Now, your reference to that abortion 'dr.' belongs on another thread. As a terrorist, he'll also get his. All grassley is doing is playing to the nutjobs. He's another Washington lifer, on the ropes, and needs to go.

Question: How many Russians bringing a red flag government (A) warning and dropping it into the laps of government(B) for red flag review, does it take, for govt B to get a clue?
Answer: For the current administration, apparently a whole "spontaneous gathering" of them.
Excuse: Maybe some of dem are still twying to figure out duh shoe bomber, via shoe size comparison?

i understand it is the same cult as muslims, and it has an even bloodier history, and no, that isn't the distant past, the Balkan wars were a three way religious war. two christian groups and one muslim.

religion, in any guise isthe most divisive, deadly thing humans have ever invented. all of the sects of these cults need to be removed from our world before we have peace and rationality here.
