FBI: Investigating Terror-Linked Mosque Not Part Of "Outreach Efforts"

The FBI visited the Boston Bombers' Mosque, but only as a part of the Obama administration's outreach program. Despite warning signs and Russian urging, they did not investigate the Mosque's radical teachings or links to Islamic terrorism:

Upon questioning by U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, FBI Director Robert Mueller admitted that the FBI did not investigate the ideology of the founders of the mosque where the Boston bombers were radicalized, even after they were tipped off by the Russians that the older of the brothers, Tamerlan, was a security risk. Although Mueller says that the FBI was in the Tsarnaev brothers' mosque before the bombing, he said it was as part of the FBI's "outreach efforts."

If the FBI would have investigated the Islamic Society of Boston, they would have found that the mosque was founded by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who also served as its first president. Alamoudi, a former advisor to President Clinton, is now in prison for terror financing al-Qaeda.
