Saudi Official: Saudi Arabia Warned About Tamerlan Tsarnaev

Now it appears TWO countries warned us about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

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.

Crap. How many countries have to warn about a non-citizen before deport his ass?  Saudi Arabia banned him from going to Mecca, and we give him welfare benefits?  Really?

Yet again, this is another major terrorism failure of the Obama Administration.

And this is a snooze media fail, too.  What, is the U. S. noos media so busy swooning over Obama that the U. K. media has to do the actual work of journalism for them?

Ed Morrissey has more background on this story.  Our DHS denies knowing of any warning from Saudi Arabia.  And we all know how credible and competent DHS is.
