CIA WARNED AGENCY – Friday April 26 2013

– The CIA asked the top US counter-terrorism agency to add the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect to a terror watch list more than a year before the attacks, officials say.
The spy agency made the move after Russian officials contacted their CIA counterparts in September 2011 about concerns they had over the possible terror ties of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed during a shootout with police last week.
Tsarnaev’s younger brother, Dzhokhar, 19, has been charged with federal terror offences including the use of a weapon of mass destruction in the twin blasts on April 15th that killed three and wounded 264 people at the Boston Marathon finish line.
As Tamerlan was a legal permanent US resident, the CIA then shared the information with the appropriate federal departments and agencies, telling them he might be of interest to them, a US intelligence official said yesterday.
The data, nearly identical to information the FBI received six months earlier, in March 2011, included two possible dates of birth, Tsarnaev’s name and a possible name variant.
Tsarnaev’s name was added to the Terrorist Identities Datamart Enviornment, although it was unclear which agency placed it there.
The latest disclosure from the CIA reveals that US intelligence agencies may have known more about Tsarnaev’s extremist links than previously thought.
Lawmakers have expressed growing concern that the case shows continuing problems with government agencies’ failure to share information in a fluid manner.
Meanwhile, US Vice-President Joe Biden denounced the accused brothers as two twisted, perverted, cowardly, knockoff jihadists at a service for slain Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier.
Mr Biden praised Officer Collier as a remarkable son (and) a remarkable brother, while his voice rose against those suspected of killing the 27-year-old officer – AFP & MCT

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
