…The FBI insists to CBS that they took all the required steps that were permissable under the law. However, around the same time the bureau interviewed Tsarnaev, changes in the FBI training manual took place as well. The FBI’s own departmental counter-terrorism analytic lexicon was purged of key words that could reference Islamic terrorism. Words like Muslim, Islam, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and sharia were not mentioned once in the FBI’s counter-terrorism lexicon afterwards.
The FBI initially denied the existence of the document in 2012 until PJ Media’s Patrick Poole posted the unclassified doc in May of that year. Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) took the issue to the House floor and excoriated the administration for allowing the changing of the training manual to happen.
Congress is now concerned that Tsarnaev slipped through the fingers of law enforcement early on. Congressman Mike McCaul (R-TX) , Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told CNN that he finds it “disturbing” the late bombing suspect was “on the FBI’s radar screen and they let him out of their sights, then that’s an issue, certainly, for me.”
