Ahem, capitol Carol, not capital.The big question being asked on Capital Hill is why more wasn’t done after the FBI’s 2011 interview with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder of two brothers suspected in the Boston bombing.
“Because if he was on the radar and they let him go, he’s on the Russians’ radar, why wasn’t a flag put on him, some sort of customs flag?” House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.
Looks like perhaps somebody dropped the ball again in the chain of command on Capital Hill?
This is not only a valid but a disturbing question, especially after the Benghazi fiasco.
Russia was interested in the guy because he went back and forth a couple of times and may have been in contact with an undesirable or two during his visits. Russia does a much better job of tracking "visitors" that the US does__A. they have far fewer to track and B. the Tsarnaeva's had hauled ass to the US years earlier some of them seeking "political" asylum.
