Boston jihad murderer’s mother says he was under FBI surveillance for three to five years

If this is true, it’s the least effective surveillance in the history of intelligence agencies. Again: Obama has scrubbed terror training of any truthful information about Islam and jihad, at the behest of Muslim Brotherhood groups. So how did these clowns even know what to look for?

Keystone Kops Alert: “Boston suspect was under FBI surveillance, mother says,” by Timothy Heritage for Reuters, April 20:

MOSCOW (Reuters) – One of the two ethnic Chechens suspected by U.S. officials of being behind the Boston Marathon bombings had been under FBI surveillance for at least three years, his mother said.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva told the English-language Russia Today state television station in a phone interview, a recording of which was obtained by Reuters, that she believed her sons were innocent and had been framed.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed in a shootout with police and his 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar was captured after a day-long manhunt.

“He (Tamerlan) was ‘controlled’ by the FBI, like, for three to five years,” she said, speaking in English and using the direct English translation of a word in Russian that means monitored.

“They knew what my son was doing, they knew what sites on the Internet he was going to,” she said in what Russia Today described as a call from Makhachkala, where she lives in Russia’s Dagestan region after returning from the United States.

Tsarnaeva echoed the boys’ father, Anzor, who said on Friday that he believed they had been framed. Both suggested in separate interviews that the FBI had made no secret of the fact that at least one of the brothers was being watched.

“I do not believe that my sons could have planned and organized the terrorist act, because they knew U.S. national security services were keeping an eye on them,” Anzor Tsarnaev told Russia’s Channel One television.

“They (the security services) said ‘We know what you eat, what you read on the Internet’,” he said, without making clear how the security officers had made contact.

In her interview with Russia Today, Tsarnaeva suggested FBI officers had visited her home when she still lived in the United States and told her that Tamerlan “was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him.”

“It is really, really a hard thing to hear. And being a mother, what I can say is that I am really sure, I am, like, 100 percent sure, that this is a set-up,” she said.

She did not say whether the FBI had started to take an interest in Tamerlan although she also referred to the security services’ interest in what Internet sites he visited.

U.S. government officials have said the brothers were not under surveillance as possible militants.

But the FBI said in a statement on Friday that in 2011 it interviewed Tamerlan at the request of a foreign government, which it did not identify.

It said the matter was closed because interviews with Tamerlan and family members “did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign”.

The FBI statement was the first evidence that the family had come to security officials’ attention after they emigrated to the United States from Dagestan about a decade ago.

It is not clear when Tsarnaeva and her husband left the United States.

    There is this weird tendency in the Muslim community to always believe in paranoid outlandish theories (“CIA conspiracy”, “FBI conspiracy”, “framed”, “set up”, etc)

    Those who follow blind faith tend to be weaker on logic and rationality. Therefore their grip on reality will always be weak. I think that’s why such people always end up lashing out against the world over their predicament, rather than seeing their own fault in getting them into it.

    It appears to me that both Tsarnaev parents are prevaricating in the Islamic tradition of taqiyya. I believe both of them encouraged the jihadic activities of their children and are both hiding their allegiance to aggressive jihad so that blame will not fall on them.

    I would assert that the word of a hysterical, unrepentant Muslim mother of a Muslim mass murderer, living in a fanatic Muslim community where the wrong word will get your throat slip by psychopathic Muslim fanatics, is not sufficient to make a judgement on the FBI or its tactics.

    Having said that, I have not doubt that the absolute lid on using anything Islamic as being associated with terror is harmful to our security.

    FBI agents anxious to do their jobs properly can always to go JihadWatch or one if its sister sites to get information on Islam itself. However, there are important questions that only studies can answer, questions which indicate the most effective use of scarce security resources.

    For instance, when an expatriate Muslim in his teens or 20’s suddenly begins praying 5 times a day, and exhibiting other traits of fervent Islamic belief, is there a significant risk that person will carry out terrorist activities?

    This is an important test for security considerations, and can only be carried out by an organized study by a security agency with access to personal information. But, this is exactly the type of information which cannot be commissioned under the current policy of turning a totally blind eye to Islamic traits.

    Well, I can see where it is attractive to the mom to replace reality with fantasy…The conspiracy theorists on Infowars are also doing that…The FBI framed these guys and set the whole thing up…Including the car chases and shoot outs with police, all FBI…They even went so far as to plant the boat the jihadi was captured in…The FBI thinks of everything…

    … the FBI had made no secret of the fact that at least one of the brothers was being watched.

    Maybe the secret the FBI was keeping was that their watchers were Moslem Special Agents recruited as part of the famous affirmative action program instituted after 9/11. Doing that would’ve killed two birds with one stone: keep disloyal employees busy with something to do, and avoid any media blowback from arresting the young Chechen Moslem before he’d even committed a Jihad terror war mass murder.

    Remember that in 2003, Special Agent Amal Abdel Hafiz refused to wear a wire to his dinner meeting with terror funder (and Moslem) Sami al-Arian. Abdel’s refusal was to obey with his religion’s ban on listening devices.

    The result? Sami was let off and flown back to Dar al-Islam in a private jet. To reward his insubordination, Special Agent Amal was promoted to a high paying FBI management position in Saudi Arabia.

    Russian intelligence informing US intelligence…”you should investigate this fellow for terrorist activities”

    US intelligence…” don’t worry…when he kills people we will arrest him”..

    Of course, mommy and daddy dearest don’t see this as a simple”if inexcusable”case of the FBI dropping the ball.

    Instead, they are convinced that their boys couldn’t possible be Jihaidsts. And why? Because the FBI suspected they were Jihadists. Follow *that* “logic”…

    And is her use of “controlled” really just a linguistic slip, or does she mean to imply that the lads committed their atrocity on the FBI’s *orders*?

    Of course, it is difficult to know anything for sure here. My guess, though, is that Russia contacted the FBI out of concerns over the pair’s possible involvement in Jihad in Chechnya. When they didn’t find anything conclusive regarding that, they slacked off. And, myopic as they likely were, never considered that they might *wage Jihad here*.

    when an expatriate Muslim in his teens or 20’s suddenly begins praying 5 times a day…

    Any Moslem observing Islam is a security risk. The gubmint’s only hope is that most of our citizen Moslems will remain remain passive, and that the ones brought to acting on the commands of Allah will be infrequent enough to suffer gracefully.

    No question; the weakest link in America; sits in our White House. Obama-the-Muslim-Hearted; insists on empowering our enemies; at America’ expense.
    This treasonous excuse for a President; nonetheless; sits in WH’living quarters’, like the proverbial; elephant – and dung – in the living room. And no one speaks a word. Same, for his Oval Office presence.

    See no evil…speak no evil; allows; invites; facilitates the very worst of Obama leadership.
