FBI Interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev Due To Web Site Visits

This guy with a green card (i.e. not a citizen and therefore easier to deport) was obviously suspected by the FBI of having jihadist leanings.

The boys' father, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, said he was present when the FBI interviewed Tamerlan in Cambridge. He said they visited for what they called "prevention" activities. "They said: We know what sites you are on, we know where you are calling, we know everything about you. Everything," Mr. Tsarnaev said.

One wonders how much "prevention" activities the FBI engages in. If the number of Muslim immigrants keeps rising will we need to expand the FBI staff size to provide enough agents to do more "prevention" activities?

The NY Times has an article about confused identities and conflicting loyalties: Suspects With Foot in 2 Worlds, Perhaps Echoing Plots of Past. Hey, why don't we have emigration officials who help such conflicted people move to where both their feet will be in the same civilization?

Sortocracy (sorting proponents of sociopolitical theories into governments that test them) is the only rational and ethical position at the federal level. All other discourse is noise.
