Right Wing Blogs Fall for Yet Another Ridiculous Daily Mail Unsourced Story

The world’s largest unison idiots’ chorus
Wingnuts • Views: 32,501

Every single right wing blogger on the Innernets is freaking out today. Yes, again.

Would you believe they’re all falling for yet another unsourced story from UK tabloid The Daily Mail, claiming that Saudi Arabia sent a letter warning about the elder Tsarnaev brother in 2012? Universally falling for it, despite the fact that the Daily Fail’s coverage of the Boston bombings has been absolutely horrible, and ridiculously full of falsehoods?

Well, of course they are! Because they see it as an opportunity to attack the Obama administration again, and they have no credibility left to waste, so why not just go nuts?

Look at ‘em go again!

Meanwhile, both the Saudi government and the US government say the Daily Mail has failed again, coming as no surprise to anyone with half a brain (which excludes the entire right wing blogosphere): White House Denies Saudis Sent Warning About Boston Suspect.

The Obama administration on Wednesday strongly denied reports that Saudi Arabia warned U.S. law enforcement officials last year that Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev posed a threat.

Saudi Arabia sent the Department of Homeland Security a letter in 2012 singling out Tsarnaev and three Pakistanis as potential jihadists, Britain’s Daily Mail reported, citing an unnamed Saudi official.

The Obama administration and the Saudi government said the story was false.

“We and other relevant U.S. Government agencies who deal with this kind of information have no record of any such letter being received,” National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden told The Hill in a statement.

A Homeland Security official likewise said the agency “has no knowledge of any communication from the Saudi government regarding information on the suspects in the Boston Marathon Bombing prior to the attack.”

The Saudi embassy in Washington also denied the report, along with allegations that it rejected a visa application from Tsarnaev to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.

“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 U.S. Department of Homeland Security or any other U.S. agency in this regard,” the embassy said in a statement. “The Saudi government also does not have any record of any application by Tamerlan Tsarnaev for an Ummrah visa.”
