Fun fact: the FBI investigated one of the 2 bombers for alleged links to extremists like, two years ago. And they didn't find anything.

So yeah, fat chance that any immigration official is going to be able to find a link if the FBI themselves can't even find one.

I'm just going to ignore the newspapers for the next week or so because I predict nothing except rampant sensationalism, speculation, and idiotic politicians coming out of the woodwork to try to turn this into a policymaker.

"Scumbag #2 in custody..."

Scumbag #3 is still at large. It is believed that he may in fact be a senator.

The FBI is likely to have run a background check, running his name through all the relevant databases, including those of other agencies, checking on his communications and all of his overseas travel. Miller reports that culminated in a sit-down interview where they probably asked him a lot of questions about his life, his contacts, his surroundings. All of this was then written in a report and sent it to the requesting government.

This is an issue they've had in the past. They interviewed Carlos Bledsoe in Little Rock, Ark., before he shot up an Army recruiting station in 2009. They were also looking into Major Hasan Nadal before the Fort Hood shootings.


this kinda makes me wonder if being subjected to an extensive fbi interrogation doesn't maybe help push someone who may already have some issues over the line...

oh, and by the way, lindsey graham totally understands that tsarnaev can't be subject to a military tribunal because he is an american citizen - he just doesn't think that should entitle him to having a lawyer present during questioning. apparently the senator feels that the number of rights you are entitled to is dependent on how serious a crime you are charged with.

I thought this story seemed fucked up . . .

Then I noticed the author http://news.yahoo.com/problem-isnt-just-illegal-immigration-legal-immigration-too-000049667.html
