The nation’s top spy on Monday requested a broad review into “the US government’s handling of intelligence information leading up to up to the Boston Marathon bombings,” according to an internal memo, the latest sign that top officials are concerned that critical warning signs may have been missed that could have prevented the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11.
The former chief of the federal government’s information-sharing program said Friday that preliminary signs indicate authorities failed to give proper attention to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects after he was added to a terror watch list by the CIA, months after FBI investigators concluded he did not pose a threat.
Homeland security chief: ‘no current indication to suggest that the attack was part of a larger plot”
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Wednesday said the twin bombings in Boston on Monday do not appear to be tied to a wider plot. “...There is no current indication to suggest that the attack was part of a larger plot,” she told the Senate Homeland Security Committee in previously scheduled testimony on her agency’s budget.
Blistering charges of misplaced power and a morally bankrupt culture in the nation’s “military-industrial complex” are rarely leveled by one of the defense establishment’s own. But that is exactly what an instructor of the military’s rising stars lobbed on Tuesday when he very purposely engaged in friendly fire at a defense budget conference co-hosted by the Cambridge-based Project on Defense Alternatives.
