According to Shakespeare suspicion always haunts the guilty mind. Is it any wonder the American imperial government can’t stop itself from adding names to its enemies list? Torturing people at Gitmo, killing children in Afghanistan, drone strikes throughout the world – the suspicion piles up along with the bodies of innocents.

Update: The government has officially denied the report is true for whatever that is worth.
More evidence is accumulating that the Boston Bombing was entirely preventable. Despite spending more money since 9/11 on Homeland Security than was spent on the New Deal, the same problems that helped caused 9/11 still exist, namely, intelligence agencies dropping the ball after being given explicit actionable intelligence. And now we find out that not only had the Russian government warned U.S. intelligence services about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, so had the Saudis.

In the aftermath of the Boston bombing, US media organizations have been providing a platform to a former New York Police Department head of intelligence analyst and co-author of a heavily critiqued and rejected report on the radicalization of Muslims in the West. He has been on CNN and Fox News sharing his views and was also quoted by Judith Miller, former New York Times journalist who had a story celebrating the NYPD published by the Wall Street Journal.
Cable news appearances by Mitchell Silber, now a managing director for K2 Intelligence, have focused on what he thinks the attack by Dhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, two ethnic Chechen Muslims who immigrated to America, shows about “homegrown terrorism.”

There is no concrete evidence that the brothers, who are suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon, were inspired by US-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Yet, CNN has posted a report with the headline, “From the grave, the cleric inspiring a new generation of terrorists,” that promotes this new detail as if it is certainly true.

Any time there is an intelligence failure the different intelligence agencies quickly blame each other in hopes of avoiding scrutiny. Let the blame game begin. The Central Intelligence Agency is now claiming they pushed to have Tamerlan Tsarnaev added to a terrorism watch list a year before the Boston Marathon Bombing.

The Associated Press has put together a story claiming that Tamerlan Tsarnaev fell under the spell of a mysterious radical only identified as “Misha.” According to the story this radical was the one responsible for Tamerlan’s metamorphosis from a typical American into a violent religious extremist.
