UPDATED: New report says Saudi Arabia warned U.S. of Tsarnaev brothers

UPDATE: TheBlaze is now reporting the Saudi Arabian government has formally denied sharing any information, written or otherwise, with the United States regarding Tamerlan Tsarnaev. In a statement, the Saudi embassy said:

“The Saudi government had no prior information about the Boston bombers. Therefore, it is not true that any information, written or otherwise, was passed to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or any other US agency in this regard. The Saudi government also does not have any record of any application by Tamerlan Tsarnaev for any visa to Saudi Arabia.”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the White House had already denied receiving any information regarding Tsarnaev or the Boston Marathon bombing from the Saudi government.

You can read the original story below.

We already know that Russia tried to warn us (on multiple occasions) of the potential radicalization of the Tsarnaev brothers. And this morning we found out Saudi Arabia may also have tried to alert the U.S. government to the national security threat the older brother, Tamerlan, posed.

TheBlaze.com reported:

As news about the Tsarnaev brothers continues to emerge, it seems Russia may not have been the only foreign nation to warn the United States that the older brother, Tamerlan, was a potential security risk. A senior Saudi government official told Daily Mail that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012. According to the source, the letter was pertaining to Tsarnaev and potential terror threats.

The report was allegedly “very specific” and warned the U.S. government that “something was going to happen in a major U.S. city.”

The Department of Homeland Security and the White House have both categorically denied ever having seen or received such a report from the Saudi Arabians.

“It's just another exciting day with some developments that definitely did not happen with Saudi Arabia. Pay no attention to Saudi Arabia, they are a dear, dear, close wonderful, almost like family kind of relationship country to us,” Glenn said sarcastically to open the radio show this morning.

“So somehow or another, Saudi Arabia knew about this guy, but we didn't. We had no idea,” he continued. “The Saudi warning was separate from the multiple red flags raised by the Russians. And this one was based on human intelligence developed independently by Saudi Arabia in Yemen. Citing security concerns, the Saudi government also denied entry of the elder Tsarnaev brother when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.”

We can all remember the days following the Boston Marathon bombing, when the FBI went on TV with photos of Tamerlan and Dzokar Tsarnaev practically begging the public to help them identify the brothers. But we have since learned we had warning from the Russians and Saudi Arabians, in addition to the FBI having personally looked into Tamerlan in 2011, and yet we still are led to believe the FBI had no idea who these men were.

“Is anybody else insulted by this,” Glenn asked.

The answer, sadly, seems to be NO. “It doesn't make any sense. You're being lied to from top to bottom,” Glenn said.

For those Back to the Future fans out there, Glenn compared this moment to the steam train in Back to the Future Part III. “Remember when they get on the steam train,” he asked. “And they have to hit these certain marks and have to be going a certain speed, otherwise, the train tracks end and the train goes off and they don't go back to the year 1985? That's kind of like where we are now.”

Unfortunately, when our train goes off the bridge, the implications are far worse than zooming back to 1985. “We end up in the canyon,” Glenn said. “We don't zoom back to 1985, even though that would be pretty sweet.  Ronald Reagan would still be president. Instead, we just go off into the canyon.”

“But there is a mile marker that we have hit,” he concluded. “And it's not only just the Saudi Arabians and our denial and our press.”

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
