Tsarnaev was Possibly CIA, Says FBI Whistleblower (video)
Former FBI employee and whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds explains in her detailed and in-depth analysis how elder Tsarnaev fits the profile of a CIA operative, including data on his visits to the North Caucasus region and his activities.
First, I want to give you a little bit of background information on Sibel Edmonds. She is not a conspiracy theorist, never has been one. She was, however, a contracted employee of FBI between 2001 and 2002.
Edmonds worked as a translator and interpreter for the FBI. She reported Al Qaeda threats that she translated for her supervisors. When she realized that no one had followed up or even asked further questions on her findings, she continued to push her supervisors to investigate these threats thoroughly. In a nut shell, she found information about plans of numerous Al Qaeda attacks. She reported this information repeatedly to her superiors, but they did nothing to follow up on it. When she insisted, she was fired.
Edmonds’ allegations of impropriety with the FBI later came to the attention of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which held unclassified hearings on the matter on June 17, 2002, and July 9, 2002. On August 15, 2002, a separate suit was filed by families of 600 victims of the September 11, 2001 (9/11) attacks against Saudi banks, charity organizations, and companies.
When FBI discovered that Edmond was planning to file a deposition in this case, they retroactively classified as Top Secret, all of the material and statements that had been provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2002 relating to Edmond’ own lawsuit, as well as the letters that had been sent by the Senators and republished by the Project on Government Oversight.
The reclassification kept Edmonds from testifying in the class action suit, and in her own whistle-blower suit.
So now, you know who she is and why you should take what she says seriously.
In an interview on Corbette Report on April 23rd, Mrs. Edmonds says this is the classic footprints of CIA, not the FBI.
A journalist’s job is to look into inconsistencies in the stories and investigate them further. This often helps the law enforcement authorities to discover the missing pieces.
As the author of this story, initially I was ready to drop the entire story and not do any further investigation or reporting on the Boston Bombing suspects. Then, I learned that the MA. Gov Patrick admitted to never actually seeing the alleged video of the 2nd suspect of putting his backpack down. Patrick said on Sunday Meet the Press (2 days after capture and kill) that he did not actually see the video but was only “briefed” on it.
When I first heard and later confirmed by the FBI questioned Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, in 2011, I wanted to uncover more information. What prompted FBI to question him? And more importantly, why did they decide to let him go? According to FBI, they could not find any terrorist or other suspicious activities at the time.
Now Reuters is reporting that the older Tsarnaev was listed on the U.S. government’s highly classified central database of people it views as potential terrorists. But, he was not put on the “no-fly” list that would have banned him from boarding an airplane in the United States. Neither was he named on the Selectee List, which would have required him to be given extra security screening at airports.
We all understand the list is large and it’s impossible to monitor all the people on that list daily. But we also know that a Foreign Government actually warned USA twice about this man.
Mrs. Edmonds asserts that the reason Tsarnaev was not further investigated was because he was working for CIA. Of course this does not explain the younger brother’s involvement.
There are also reports of Uncle Tsarnaev’s possible connection with the CIA. Daniel Hopsikcer reports that the uncle of the two men who struck the only grace note in an otherwise horrific week, worked as a “consultant” for the Agency for International Development (USAID). This is a U.S. Government Agency often used for cover by agents of the CIA, in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan during the “Wild West” days of the early 1990’s, when anything that wasn’t nailed down in that country was up for grabs.
UK based Channel 4 News reported on April 21st that the suspects’ father claimed that the FBI telephoned his elder son after the attack, and prior to a fatal shootout that took the life of a police officer. According to the report Tamerlan told his mother that the FBI had just rung him and accused him of being behind the attacks, and that he had responded by saying “that’s your problem”, Mr Tsarnaev claimed.
It is clear that there are still many questions need to be answered by the authorities and further evidence of footage from the marathon. We need to examine the following chase (police dash cams…etc), the suspects’ bank accounts, phone records, and more.
Everything needs to be carefully examined if we are to uncover a better understanding of what really happened. We need to know who these men actually were, and the motives behind their actions that led to the killing of 4 people and injuring hundreds more.
