Daily Mail says Saudis warned U.S. about Boston Bomber #1, Obama admin denies

Daily Mail says Saudis warned U.S. about Boston Bomber #1, Obama admin denies

Be cautious about the headline of the day

The Daily Mail has dropped a bombshell which, if true, will blow the Boston Marathon Bombing case wide open.

But … that’s “if true.”

Interestingly, the author of the article is David Martosko, who recently left The Daily Caller, where he was Executive Editor.

This surely will dominate the news all day, but be cautioned:

Daily Mail US warned by Saudis on Boston Bomber

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written  warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S.  Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts  killed three and injured hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government  official with direct knowledge of the document.

The Saudi warning, the official told  MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian  intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed  independently in Yemen.

Citing security concerns, the Saudi  government also denied an entry visa to the elder Tsarnaev brother in December  2011, when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca, the source said. Tsarnaev’s  plans to visit Saudi Arabia have not been previously disclosed….

A DHS official denied, however, that  the  agency received any such warning from Saudi intelligence  about Tamerlan  Tsarnaev.

‘DHS has no knowledge of any communication  from the Saudi government  regarding information on the suspects in the Boston  Marathon Bombing  prior to the attack,’ MailOnline learned from one Homeland  Security  official who declined to be named in this report.

The White House took a similar view. ‘We and  other relevant U.S. government agencies have no record of such a letter being  received,’ said Caitlin  Hayden, a spokesperson for the president’s National  Security Council.

Update: Saudis deny.

Again, what happened with the Saudi who Michelle visited in Boston? Why did the Saudis send a guy to the WH? What did Hussein “give” them not to talk about the letter? Or was the Saudi a terrorist, and is this story then a diversion?

With this and Fox News stories, and Congress pushing harder, I take solace in the thought that Barack isn’t sleeping well these days.

    ” …I take solace in the thought that Barack isn’t sleeping well these days.”

    What tea leaves are you looking at? How could you possibly think he isn’t sleeping well when he takes the phone off the hook? Of course that is hyperbole. He probably makes it very clear that his underlings are not to call him, so where the phone is is irrelevant.

    On the contrary, I believe he is sleeping well because he is interested in the destruction of our country, and that is happening. Energy prices are going up, his cronies are raking in the dough, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th 10th amendment rights are disappearing.

    THAT same SAUDI, Al Harbi also visited the White House several times. But, what MuzBro, CAIR radical hasn’t been to the WH? What Muslim isn’t Obama’s bud?

    Believe Saudi Arabia or any Muslim, or any progressive (communist) about anything they say?

    Not for one split second!

      But we also cannot believe the CIA, FBI and DHS which did not vet Obama before 2008 or before his senate elections for that matter.

      Our security forces are politically corrupted. Our military is operating on politically correct (false) premises to the detriment of the safety of our soldiers.

The Kingdom rejected a visa request from a Muslim to make the hajj?

There’s more import to that than the story would indicate. That wouldn’t be done lightly. If true, then there’s more to this than meets the eye.

There sure is more to this than “home grown” terrorism. It appears that the ball was dropped big time..

Awwh – nobody wants him now.

It would be even more enlightening to find out exactly WHAT the Saudis knew about the elder Tsarnaev that made them reject his visa, mere months after the U.S. declared no evidence against him and ‘closed his file’ and mere months before they sent official notice to the U.S. about him. Or so someone claims.

Any minute now the media hawks are going to call for Obama’s impeachment claiming Obama had lots of advance warning and could have prevented the terrorist attack in Boston.

Any minute now.

Any minute now.


From an administration that constantly lies to its people, I do not believe a word they say. I believe the Saudi kid that Michelle visited had a lot more to do with the Boston Bombing then they are telling us, and that we are again being lied to that it was just the two men they are telling us about. The president is a liar, and he does it with a straight face. Pitiful

    Not pitiful so much as frightening and chilling.

    He has a visceral hatred of our nation.

    Wendybar, if Wm had got the thumbs up thingy working, you’d be queen on the board right now.

You are wise to advise caution; however, with the track record of this gang of Chicago gangster-thugs, I don’t believe them. Not one word. I would ALWAYS believe the British version of the Enquirer over anything this administration says.

Did they tell the truth about Fast & Furious?

Did they tell the truth about Benghazi?

Not. One. Word.

Given what we’ve seen in the Obamic Decline, I find it utterly plausible that one…or more…states have sent warnings to the US about these killers.

Saudi concerns about terrorism in their own country are high, and they seem pretty competent in suppressing it, as one would expect from what is essentially a police state.

I can readily imagine a note going to State being short-stopped there by the Huma Weiner influenced boobs around “Old Wall-eye” Clinton.

Uncle Samuel | May 1, 2013 at 10:04 am

ALSO REMEMBER folks, this same FBI, DHS, CIA also neglected to vet Obama, the ideologue Islamo-communist, before 2008.

Therefore one can only conclude that our security forces are complicit and politically corrupted.

Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:#15 Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#26 Khalid Salim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
#29 Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
#43 Abdullah Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
#60 Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi

Then you have Al-Harbi clan members in Gitmo:

Salim Salman Awadallah Al-Sai’di Al-Harbi
Majid Abdullah Hussein Al-Harbi
Muhammad Abdullah Saqr Al-Alawi Al-Harbi
Ghanem Abdul Rahman Ghanem Al-Harbi
Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awfi Al-Harbi

There are specific Saudi clans that are rife with members of Al-Qaeda, which makes it quite alarming as to why nearly a hundred thousand student visas are issued to these. Americans are clueless as to clan ties when it comes to terrorism. Read more

Saudis are trying to deflect attention from themselves. Deport all the Saudis. Eencourage your state legislators and trustees of public colleges and universities to turn away money from these people. If you are an alum of a private college do the same. These people are vermin.

I’m sure the DHS used all due diligence in investigating Tsarnaev.

They determined he was not bitterly clinging to a bible, was not a U.S. military veteran, and was not a member of any organization the SPLC warns about.
