FBI Interviewed Boston Bombing Suspect in 2011

The FBI and other law enforcement agencies were aware of at least one of the Boston terror suspects for several years, and even failed to deport him after a domestic violence conviction in 2009.

The FBI in 2011 interviewed one of the brothers suspected in the deadly Boston Marathon bombings, a disclosure that raises questions about whether the government missed potential warning signs about the men's behavior.

The brothers had not been under surveillance as possible militants, U.S. government officials said. 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.

"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," the FBI statement said.

  1. I`d say he`s lost a little color since then . Not gonna be a problem , Obama care will fix him right up .

  2. Didn't know they poped him with a Big Bore. That's not a blast/ frag wound, that is a very large projectile wound(.405+)the hematoma is impact trauma. Low explosive(like black powder/flash powder) causes extensive burns. Not hematoma, and sure as hell not side-to-side/T.A.T penetrating trauma. Just sayin'

  3. Looks like blunt trauma to me. According to the Watertown police chief Deveau, they had Tamerlan subdued in the street and were in the process of handcuffing him when the younger brother came at them in the stolen SUV, forcing them to jump out of the way. The brother ran
    over Tamerlan and drug him down the street.
    He was alive while the PD had him, the brother killed him by running over him with an SUV.
    He was in total jihadi mode, "kill them all let Allah sort them out."

    1. Thanks. By the way, do you know SFMedic who is doing our TCCC?
