#1 Sorry, the communications and data-sharing "shortfalls" theory has....shortfalls. There is a well established national agency process for documenting and reporting meets with non-US persons with the placement and access, contacts, and travel history of persons like Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

“We have access to all the databases, but we were not in fact informed of that particular development,” the police commissioner told a congressional committee in May, according to a CNN transcript. He added that his officers on the task force “tell me they received no word about that individual prior to the bombing,” the Associated Press reported.

Simply throwing the Tsarnaev information into a data-base and not tipping local law enforcement is indeed telling. Quickly picking out the Tsarnaev bros. foto's from the thousands of Boston Marathon attendees is equally as telling. Immediately posting the foto's on teevee and requesting assistance from the public before contacting the Boston PD is well....beyond belief. Flushing potential suspects can produce useful communications data but can also produce grave consequences. In this case it provided both.

#2 The testy dialog between FBI Director Mueller and Rep. Louie Gohmart, TX said a great deal about the failure to pay attention to the signals that were readily available prior to the Boston bombings. Here. Seems no one is minding the store.

#3 Mueller knows, he's simply not saying. He's an old man, backstopping the investigative effort. 'Taking one for the team' so to speak.
