In Response to Re: 2 U.S. Agencies Added Boston Bomb Suspect to Watch Lists:
Werner, we are all here making a lot of assumptions and stating what if should have been done or not.
I have a great problem with what we have all learned regarding Homeland Security, FBI and CIA.
I have no idea as to what extent was the FBI investigation but if it was asking the neighbors, looking into his computer and email, and interviewing the suspect in person. I really find all of that very childish.
The lack or looking into a series of "red flags" even if there was nothing to find at that specific time, Going to Russia for 6 months and not doing anything, or thinking it strange, ?
Now, many are blaming the Russsian for not providing more information. I guess now we want the Russians to do our legwork for us.
Another thing that really makes me somewhat angry. These people come into this country, and in a record ammount of time they are able to become citizesn.
I went tnru a similar process, and I know how many years I was dealing on becoming an American Citizen,and how much I was investigated because of my country of origin.
Gee, have things become so lax?

The younger brother was in the United States more than 10 years before he was naturalized.
The older brother had permanent resident status, but was not naturalized.
And, there were at least two different translations of their family names from the Cyrillic alphabet to our Latin-based alphabet, causing difficulty in tracking them in various systems.
(From my own experience I know the problems in translation from the Latin based alphabet, my name, to a written system of ideograms, Chinese.)
But, it think we can all agree that the protocols used by U.S. security agencies need modification and improvement.
