Great news: At least one Tsarnaev pal arrested today was here illegally

posted at 2:41 pm on May 1, 2013 by Allahpundit

Proof of innocent intent in disposing of Tsarnaev’s “materials”? Just think: This guy was months away from being amnestized by Schumer/McCain/Rubio, and now he’s gone and thrown it all away.

Expect Lindsey Graham to be on TV within the hour arguing simultaneously that (1) no one should use this new revelation to politicize the new immigration bill and (2) this revelation proves that the new immigration bill is urgently needed.

A U.S. government official tells CNN that the three students in law enforcement custody Wednesday are two students from Kazakhstan, Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, and another student, a U.S. citizen. The official says that their case reveals more holes in information sharing

It wasn’t until the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division heard about the interviews later on Saturday that they realized Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov were not currently of legal immigration status, and ICE officials went to pick them up and detain them.

The first US government official told CNN that at an immigration court hearing this morning, the court learned that Tazhayakov returned to Kazakhstan in December 2012, and his status with U. Mass-Dartmouth was terminated on January 3. Yet somehow he was allowed to return into the U.S. on January 20.

“They shouldn’t have let him in,” the first official told CNN. “Bells should have gone off.”

All we need now is an accounting of their welfare benefits and this’ll be wrapped up in a neat little bow. A key detail, though, per Tapper’s report: Supposedly Tsarnaev asked them to dump the “materials” before his and Tamerlan’s names were released to the public as the prime suspects (but after the photos of them at the marathon had been published). The feds must have something suggesting that they knew they were disposing of criminal evidence, but it’s not clear what that is. One of the things they’ve been looking for at the landfill, allegedly, is Dzhokhar’s PC; maybe they’re inferring that there’s really no innocent explanation for doing a friend a solid when he asks you to throw his computer in the trash right away and no, he won’t be around for awhile to do it himself. Or, maybe, Dzhokhar gave up all of these guys in return for leniency at sentencing. That’s smart, if so. According to a new WaPo poll, fully 70 percent of the public, including a majority of Democrats, wants him to get the needle.

Update: Well, that explains it:

This is interesting too:

Update: Here’s the full complaint. Enjoy the pen, boys. Key bit:

These lone wolf types certainly are in a large pack, aren’t they?

The word for terrorist wolf pack is “ummah”.

It’s so comforting to know that amateur terrorists like these, even when we’ve been warned about their actions and connections long before the actual crime took place, were still able to pull it off.
We’re more worried about what’s in granny’s suitcase or whether someone has a water bottle than following up on intelligence. These punks have made a mockery of our security systems.

from Daily Mail UK

[Monday, April 15, 2013 ] But just a few hours later he began an exchange with a friend, with the Twitter handle @MelloChamp, in which the 19-year-old presumably began referencing the bombings with a callous tone.

It has been difficult to ascertain the nature of the conversation as @MelloChamp has since deleted his profile on the micro blogging website, as have many of the other users linked to the suspect’s account.

The FBI gave a press conference on the afternoon of Thursday, April 18, 2013, and released photos of bombers

April 18, Thursday, between 8:43 p.m. and 8:48, Kadyrbayev texted Jokar:

Wow. 1 of 3 new suspects, Kadyrbayev, texted Tsarnaev to say he looked like bombing suspect after FBI photo release. Dzhokhar’s reply: “lol”

Question: who is MelloChamp, when did he delete his profile?

Timeline

Several months before the bombings, Tazhayakov and Tsarnaev went to the banks of the nearby Charles River and set off fireworks.

Useful cover, little firework festival

The three watched a movie, and then noticed a backpack that contained fireworks from which the explosive powder had been emptied.

Just happened to notice the backpack from their fun firework festival. Everyone unloads the gunpowder from fireworks, up at Dartmouth. Might be misconstrued. So they deep six the evidence like good little immigrants so he wont get in trouble. Any bets they erased the hard drive?

Oh gee, why harp on the fact that he was here illegally. He probably just came here to do some job that Americans don’t want to do… like blow something up.

That was in Four Lions, too. In the movie, they had used fireworks as to disguise a bomb test. These guys seemed to have followed the movie pretty well. They were just missing the Honey Bear costume.

This is yet another reason why we cannot have amnesty. How many people are here illegally who wish to do us harm that we would be giving a legal status to remain here if we gave them amnesty? Hundreds? Thousands? We are in a war and we need to remember that. We shouldn’t even be giving these people Visas to enter the country, much less amnesty.

Yet, Obama said yesterday that “Boston was not an intel. failure”.

Schadenfreude on May 1, 2013 at 3:33 PM

Didn’t he once say the Boston police “acted stupidly”?

If Benghazi happened a long time ago. so did the Obowma 5th Annual Summer of Recovery…or NOT.

Now, now, people. Muslims do not like to be buried at sea. We must respect the beliefs of adherents to the Religion of Peace — even when they don’t respect ours. /sarc

While I like the “burial at sea” suggestion, I believe I can improve upon it: stuff Tsarnaev’s body with explosives, set him adrift on a raft, then from a safe distance detonate same. If that fate was good enough for Tsarnaev’s innocent victims, it is more than good enough for him.
