Once the FBI learned the identities of the two brothers today, the FBI reviewed its records and determined that in early 2011, a foreign government asked the FBI for information about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The request stated that it was based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United States for travel to the country’s region to join unspecified underground groups.
In response to this 2011 request, the FBI checked U.S. government databases and other information to look for such things as derogatory telephone communications, possible use of online sites associated with the promotion of radical activity, associations with other persons of interest, travel history and plans, and education history. The FBI also interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev and family members. The FBI did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign, and those results were provided to the foreign government in the summer of 2011. The FBI requested but did not receive more specific or additional information from the foreign government.
História ainda muito mal contada. Ou Tsarnaev mudou de repente ou a investigação foi mal feita. O foreign governement parece saído de um filme do Bond. O Guardian edita as informações da mãe. Esta história mete barcos e água… E Tsarnaev era bom rapaz: só detonou as panelas muito depois de os primeiros concorrentes terem cortado a meta e quando já havia menos gente na linha de meta …
Um bom resumo do nevoeiro aqui:
But as many have pointed out, there seems little cause right now to think that any kind of inspiration came from the brothers’ experiences in Central Asia. (Or Chechnya, for that matter.) Until more information comes out – until we find out where they were raised, or if they trained, or whether they had any contacts to any militants in any cells in any nations – everything remains tenuous. And the search goes on for the 19-year-old who’s shut down an entire city, and who helped America find, in one of the worst ways possible, just where Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan and Chechnya lie on the map.
