CIA knew about Tamerlan Tsarnaev months before the Boston bombing and put him on a terrorist 'watchlist' | @NewDayStarts | Scoop.it
U.S. officials say the name of the dead suspect in the Boston marathon bombings was added to a U.S. government terrorism database about 18 months before the attacks..
@NewDayStarts's insight:

U.S. officials say the name of the dead suspect in the Boston marathon bombings was added to a U.S. government terrorism database about 18 months before the attacks.

In the fall of 2011, Russia contacted the CIA with concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. 

Two officials say the CIA added Tsnaraev's name to a terrorism database, called TIDE, that feeds into watch lists like the one used to keep terrorists off airplanes. 

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation. 

This new revelation shows that both major intelligence agencies were aware of his possible terrorist ties, as it was reported earlier today that the Russians contacted the FBI about Tsarnaev earlier that year. The FBI conducted an investigation and did not find he had any terror connections.
