Federal law enforcement officials told ABC News that the suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, “was interviewed in 2015 by federal agents in the Department of Homeland Security Investigations Unit about possible ties to suspected terrorists.”



In spite of having enough information to initiate contact with Saipov and interview him, DHS did not pursue the case, citing that “the agents did not have enough evidence to open a case on him.”

FBI Interviewed NYC Terrorist About His Ties to Terrorism BEFORE the Attack

So apparently the suspect was once interviewed by the FBI due to apparent terrorist ties but no case was built due to a lack of evidence


“Investigators searching Saipov’s online activities have found social media links to people who are or were subjects of terror investigations,” and he appears to be much more involved than just “someone who found ISIS propaganda online with no sense that he was part of a cell or in any way directed to do this.”

Just another case of a ball being dropped..

Huh, that's odd. Seems like this has been seen before.

Anywho, maybe we should give them MORE resources, MORE of our freedoms and MORE of our trust! You know, so they can keep us safe. .. ..... .

Terrorist succeed in their goals when our freedoms are stripped from us one at a time. Fear mongering and a passive society in my opinion creates havoc for future generations

Shocking.

Actually I'd be more surprised had he not been investigated. It's like all the sexual abusers we've been hearing rumors about for years. I'm shocked Kevin Spacey is Gay or Harvey Weinstein is a sexual predator. Next I bet you'll tell me something about Tom Cruise or John Travolta.

I guess it´s just a coincidence, like all the other times before, that the terrorist was known to the "protectors".
Smells like guided terrorism again!

Hey, the FBI surly doesn't want you to be working for them.

One of my Egyptian friends told me something interesting...The guy's name can literally be translated as "Sword of Allah" and that still didn't raise any eyebrows???

Something smells like rotten fish to me.

Hopefully they let our law enforcement do their job pretty soon. This is not the first time a person killing people has been talked to by the FBI ahead of the incident because red flags were raised.

Welp, add another one to the list!

Where did this happen before?
Boston mb?
Tsarnaev brothers?
The friend who was killed by FBI in Florida during an interview?
Then 2 of the agents involved died falling from a helicopter?
Oh yeah, the same FBI that didn't have enough evidence to pursue this guy.

But when the FBI arrests a terrorist before they carry out an attack many on ATS yell "patsy" and blaim the Feds for setting the suspect up.

Well I hate to break it to you, that is practically the only way to stop terrorists on US soil before they commit an attack.

It's not the ball being dropped.

Here's a question for you, how are we supposed to pursue charges against someone before they're guilty of a crime? Do you want to do away with due process and let law enforcement arrest and detain people for what they think the person might do in the future?

Ok, so what was he guilty of in 2015 that we should have arrested him for?

They should have kept him under surveillance to make sure he was not a threat. I have an FBI file on me because I moved from Wisconsin back to Michigan with a not fully completed drunk driving sentence. I had to go set up the probation here and it worked out fine, but it caused the creation of a federal record with the FBI. That was in the early eighties. I blew a 1.0 but wasn't really drunk, I got off on a technicality a week before, I was playing cat and mouse with my camaro, a off duty cop called it in as a firebird. You do not really get away because of a technicality most times.

My FBI record pops up everytime a cop stops me, but I do not drink anymore, haven't been drunk in decades. In the case of someone questioned because of terrorist behavior, I think they should be on a watch list. Whether they are imports or home grown.
