Unnamed foreign government asked FBI for information about Tamerlan ­Tsarnaev in 2011

In 2011, an unnamed foreign government asked the FBI for information regarding Tamerlan ­Tsarnaev, the 26-year old Islamic terrorist who was killed in a shootout with Boston police early Friday morning. The request was based on information that Tamerlan ­Tsarnaev was a follower of - wait for it - 'radical Islam.'
In 2011, a foreign government asked the FBI for information about Tamerlan ­Tsarnaev, based on information that he was a follower of “radical Islam” who had changed drastically, the bureau said in a statement Friday. In response, the FBI investigated and interviewed Tamerlan and family members. “The FBI did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign,” the bureau said.
How 'Islamophobic' of them to 'investigate'!

Meanwhile, the younger brother, Dzhokhar became a naturalized US citizen on September 11, 2012, after... get this... (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
On September 11th, 2012, a year and a half after his high school graduation, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev became a naturalized US citizen, according to government officials, after passing a criminal background check, a US civics and English test, and completing an interview with a federal immigration officer.
So an unnamed foreign government said that the older brother was a follower of 'radical Islam' and this had what effect on the process for the younger brother becoming a US citizen?

And just for good measure....
By contrast, Tamerlan had a green card, but was not a citizen. His father said in a New York Times interview that the domestic violence charges against him might have thwarted Tamerlan’s attempt to gain United States citizenship.
Ya think?

Read the whole thing.  There are more tidbits which will make you wonder why the alarm bells didn't go off in time.
