Returning from a congressional delegation visit with Russian security officials in Moscow, Mass. Democrat Rep. William Keating, said the Russians believe the Boston Marathon bombings could have been avoided. The Russian Federal Security Service said they provided a warning to U.S. intelligence agents outlining details of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s plans to join a terrorist cell in southern Russia.
Keating said that in March 2011, Russian officials sent a lengthy letter to the FBI with numerous details on Tsarnaev and his mother. After using the letter to investigate the case, the FBI closed the file.
Addressing reporters at the airport, Keating said Russian officials indicated there may have been laws or regulations preventing them from doing more with the investigation, and he will review the areas that caused the roadblocks.
Suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombing which killed four and wounded 160, Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout days later and his brother Dzhokhar remains in federal custody.
