“Could’ve, should’ve, would’ve.” Those words describe how the massacre on Boston’s streets, followed by the deadly crime spree at MIT and in Watertown, might have been avoided. It turns out that United States Department of Immigration could have deported Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2009 because of a domestic violence conviction. They should have done so, because the law is intended to protect American citizens from immigrants who pose a threat. And lastly, they would have done so but for a few little problems: (a) an administration that craves immigrants who might vote Democrat; (b) an administration that is afraid to look as if it’s “persecuting” Muslims; and (c) the usual bureaucratic inertia that is typical for any big government.
Tamerlan would have been a good candidate for deportation. Judicial Watch reports that it revealed years ago that al Qaeda has been active in Chechnya. Indeed, in 1994, Osama bin Laden founded a training camp there, the stated purpose of which was to train “international terrorists” to carry out al Qaeda’s agenda throughout the world. In formerly classified documents that Judicial Watch obtained in 2011, the government clearly identified the goal behind these Chechen camps:
The goal, according to the once-classified documents obtained by JW in 2011, was to “establish a worldwide Islamic state capable of directly challenging the U.S., China, Russia, and what it views as Judeo-Christian and Confucian domination.” Further, radical Islamic regimes were to be established and supported everywhere possible, from “sea to sea,” including Chechnya. “Terrorist activities are to be conducted against Americans and westerners…” according to the report issued by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
Even now, Chechen Muslims are making it clear that they believe that this deadly duo acted appropriately in spilling innocent blood on America’s streets. The bombers’ father has threatened to unleash Hell on America if his surviving son is touched, while Chechnya’s president claimed that the Tsarnaev brothers were not at fault here — it was their American upbringing that caused the problem.
President Ramzan Kadyro might like to look closer to home. Our government has known for years that the Chechen Muslims are devoted to mass violence. In 2004, it was Chechen Islamic militants who invaded Beslan, Russia, occupied a school and, after holding 1,000 people hostage for three days, murdered 380 children, parents, teachers, and visitors. Two years before, the same crew seized a theater in Moscow and took 850 people hostage, with 130 of the hostages getting killed when the police tried to control the situation by pumping gas into the theater. Chechens Muslims like crowds and they like blood – and the Tsarnaev brothers got both.
Back in 2009, Tamerlan (who, incidentally, is named after, Timur or Tamerlane, one of the most violent jihadists in world history), could have been, and was, a time-bomb waiting to explode. Yet when there was a chance to send him home, our federal government kept him right here. Rubbing salt into the wound, on September 11, 2012 — the same day as the Benghazi attack and, of course, the anniversary of 9/11 – Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, his little brother, became an American citizen. Our government couldn’t have made it easier for these men if we’d laid out a red carpet leading right to Boylston Street.
