    BREAKING: Napolitano Admits DHS Knew of Boston Bomber’s Russia Trip

    BREAKING: Napolitano Admits DHS Knew of Boston Bomber’s Russia Trip

    Apr 23rd, 2013 @ 09:16 am › John Hill

    Slipped through her fingers: Big sis admits DHS knew Boston jihadist traveled to Russia in 2012.
    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stunned a Senate panel when she admitted that her agency knew of Chechen terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s trip to Russia last year even though his name was misspelled on a travel document, as she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on sweeping immigration amnesty legislation.
    The admission that her department was aware of Tsarnaev’s six-month trip to Dagestan – a hotbed of radical Islamic activity - surprised two ‘Gang of Eight’ senators, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who had been using an the hearing to try and establish that the DHS didn’t catch his travels under the current visa system, and that their ‘Gang of 8′ Amnesty bill would ‘fix the glitch’, only to be corrected by Big Sis – leaving Schumer speechless as his talking points evaporated.

    The revelation raises further disturbing questions about why U.S. security services failed to keep track of the man who went on to kill 4 people in Boston last week.

    Both senators had claimed that the misspelling caused the FBI to miss the trip. Graham, told the secretary that it contradicted what he’d been told by the FBI:

    “They told me that they had no knowledge of him leaving or coming back so I would like to talk to you more about this case,” Graham told Napolitano.

    Napolitano said that even though Tsarnaev’s name was misspelled, “redundancies in the system” allowed his departure to be captured by U.S. authorities in January 2012:

    “The system pinged when he was leaving the United States. By the time he returned all investigations had been closed,” Napolitano said.

    The Russia trip is now seen as important to determining how and when Tsarnaev, the older Boston bomber who died in a firefight with police, became radicalized, and whether he had ties to others.

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev was investigated by the FBI at Russia’s request and his name was included in a federal government travel-screening database after that, law enforcement officials have told The Associated Press.

    As SWA reported yesterday, Russian security services warned the FBI in November 2012 that Tsarnaev was seen meeting – six times – with a person involved in militant Islamic underground movement in Dagestan. This Islamist leader, Gadzhimurad Dolgatov (who also went by the name Amir Abu Dujana) was killed after a fierce gunbattle with Russian security forces in Dagastan in December 2012

    The visit “would lead one to believe that that’s probably where he got that final radicalization to push him to commit acts of violence and where he may have received training” in terrorist techniques, U.S. House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers told NBC.

    Yet another claim by the amnesty advocates is exposed, and a new twist to the disturbing story of the “jihadist who got away” emerges which further undermines trust that the DHS can effectively protect Americans from the massive increase of foreigners with visas that the ‘Gang of Eight’ bill would bring to our shores.
