Saudis warned United States about Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in writing – NYPOST.com

By Joe Tacopino

Saudi Arabian officials gave the United States a written warning about Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev months before the attack, a new report says. Officials in the oil-rich kingdom sent a letter to the US Department of Homeland Security in 2012, detailing their concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev and indicating he might have been planning an attack, the Daily Mail reports today.

“It was very specific” a Saudi official told the Mail. He said the letter mentioned Tsarnaev’s name and warned that “something was going to happen in a major US city.” The information arose through Saudi intelligence- gathering in Yemen, the paper said, although the specific source of that info was not revealed.

The Saudis were so concerned that they denied Tsarnaev a visa to visit the holy city of Mecca in 2011.
