Did Russian authorities warn the FBI about one of the two brothers accused of last years Boston Marathon bombing?
An NBC News report Tuesday said yes, the U.S. missed a chance to detain Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of two Chechen brothers accused of the bombings. Tamerlan died in a gunfight with police. His brother Dzhokhar was wounded and is currently awaiting trial in November.
The network, according to the Huffington Post, said that a memo was sent to Customs and Border Protection database that would trigger an alert if Tsarnaev would leave or re-enter the U.S.
