Russians Recorded Bomber’s Calls, FBI Calls Russians Islamaphobes

So today the news reports the Russians recorded a call between the Tsarnaevs where “one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother.”  (H/T Drudge).

Here’s the kicker:

As it was, Russian authorities told the FBI only that they had concerns that Tamerlan and his mother were religious extremists. With no additional information, the FBI conducted a limited inquiry and closed the case in June 2011.

Based on the FBI’s current training manual, connections between Islam and violence were purged:

An internal FBI investigation into its counterterrorism training has purged hundreds of bureau documents of instructional material about Muslims, some of which characterized them as prone to violence or terrorism.

2 + 2 = 4.
