FBI Official: Tsarnaev Surveillance Allegations Are ‘Patently False’

The bureau maintains it didn’t know the identities of the bombing suspects until after Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s corpse was fingerprinted, contrary to what an MIT patrol supervisor has to say.

The FBI is pushing back hard against allegations aired Friday on WBUR that the bureau had identified the bombing suspects well before the time authorities have publicly claimed.

Clarence Henniger, the MIT patrol supervisor who first found the bullet-riddled body of slain MIT officer Sean Collier, told researchers who are constructing an oral history of the bombing at Northeastern University that the FBI knew who the Tsarnaevs were and that agents were conducting surveillance on their home in Cambridge around the time that Collier was shot—in stark contradiction to the FBI’s claim that they did not know the bomber’s identities until fingerprinting Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s corpse at the hospital hours later. WBUR included Henniger’s comments as part of a story about the manhunt, and the blog Privacy SOS first noted the contradiction four days later.

In response, Assistant Special Agent In Charge of the Boston office, Kieran Ramsey, told Boston that Henniger is “absolutely uninformed” and that his claims are “patently false. We did not know the identities of the Tsarnaev brothers until after [Tamerlan] was fingerprinted.”

Henniger, a 39-year veteran of MIT’s police force, gave fuel to conspiracy theorists and bloggers when he told Northeastern University that “The word was out regarding the suspects. We knew that his house was under surveillance, and the feds were all over the city of Cambridge.” However, when contacted by Boston, Henniger admitted that his information is not based in fact. “We were just assuming,” Henniger said. “We had an idea that they had already put it together who they were.”

Henniger, however, was correct that FBI agents were swarming around Cambridge at the time Collier was killed. Ramsey, who was the on-scene commander in Cambridge that day, confirmed that agents “were following up on leads far and wide which included following up on leads on the MIT campus. Everywhere we could, where we had a lead, we would follow-up immediately.” Though he would not give specifics, Ramsey added that the leads his agents were tracking were connected to the bombings but not to the Tsarnaevs.

Late afternoon on the Thursday after the bombings, FBI and police officials released photos of the suspects, at the time known only as “Suspect 1” and “Suspect 2,” and asked for the public’s help in identifying them. Hours later, chaos erupted. Those of us in Boston are all too familiar with what happened next: The two brothers allegedly shot Collier to death before hijacking a car and throwing homemade grenades at police in a Watertown shootout.

This is not the first time the FBI denied knowing who the Tsarnaevs were before Collier was shot. Last October, Republican Senator from Iowa Charles Grassley asked the FBI in a public letter why there was increased FBI activity in the Cambridge area before Collier was killed. “Was the surveillance being conducted in Cambridge on either of the Tsarnaev brothers, their associates, or people later confirmed to be their acquaintances?” asked Grassley. In response, the FBI issued a statement saying, “No one was surveilling the Tsarnaevs and they were not identified until after the shootout. Any claims to the contrary are false.”

Despite the FBI’s strong assertions, Henniger stands by his story and says he still has lingering doubts about what the feds knew and when. “We still have questions,” he says, “and to some degree I’m sure [the FBI] knew.”

To that, says Ramsey, “That MIT officer could not be more wrong.”

    Good for Supervisor Henniger! Now if only a few more had the same courage to voice their doubts in public and for the record. Maybe the public will finally learn the whole truth. The cover ups and secrecy surrounding this case is a disgrace to law enforcement everywhere!!!

  • Hilary

    The FBI are lying. Me and my bf saw them around his area in Cambridge, not far from the Tsarnaev`s house on Norfolk, not even yet into the 18th. I thought it was weird but I didn`t piece it together until after Sen. Grassley released that letter. They knew who these two brothers were. I`m sure they realized the huge fuck-up on their part not to investigate Tamerlan thoroughly, unless he was some type of informant. We in Boston don`t forget the trash that came out of that office, left a lot of dead bodies.

  • Perplexed

    Now let’s see how long before Henniger meets an untimely demise.

    • CATHERINE UNWIN

      Clarence Henniger definitely needs to take some Leave and get away from Boston quickly. TOO many have died suspiciously in the past year. Count is at least 10

  • LT in TN

    Susan, Henniger didn’t “fuel” any conspiracy theorist. He told the truth and now the FBI is throwing him under the bus. You should know that, given what you witnessed with Todashev’s friends.
    Basically, either the FBI’s investigative unit is so crappy, they can’t find people they’ve already interviewed or they’re lying.
    It’s not that hard to ascertain.
    I, for one, will be supporting Sgt. Henniger. He sounds like a good man, doing a good job.

  • pategan

    Thank you, Supervisor Henniger! A brave officer who serves the truth and the people. The people will not forget you, Sir…we have you in the corner of our eye!

  • simonsezme

    The FBI story doesn’t stand up to even the most fundamental scrutiny. Why did they go down to Orlando and shoot an unarmed man in the back of the head (Todashev) after the fact? Did he know something about the FBI involvement in the triple murder they were supposedly questioning him about? Why are all of the court records sealed in the Dzhokhar trial? What are they hiding? Thug criminals.

  • public_servant_watch

    The entire event is a fraud that involves multiple executives from the Company Borderfree where Krystle Campbell now works. She was seen alive and well on Wall St. 3/21/2014 as her company stood there with the honor of ringing the AM bell while announcing their opening public price. The group picture is supposedly the employees at the Boston Summer Shack on 12/21/2012 with their holiday greeting but many in that picture worked for Borderfree and many, including Campbell, took positions with the company after the 4/15/2013 event. A couple of the folks in the pic have been ID’d as loser trolls on Twitter who promote the lies. Campbell was still Tweeting after 4/15/2013 and put up a profile pic of her more youthful self; the account was deactivated yesterday with this exposure. The deception was pre-planned with manipulation of hairlines, eye color and ears for deceptive pictures. Everyone in that group pic has been identified. The actions by the FBI, the US Congress, the Court and the Massachusetts State government regarding this matter simply proves that they were in collusion with the elites in the private sector to Defraud the people of this country while working to diminish rights. The renovation of a federal prison recently purchased by the government in Illinois should fill up fast with all the corrupt scum involved in this Fraud Upon the People and what actually is defined as TREASON. They better get that bill they drafted in Congress in regards to abolishing the federal death penalty passed before we get these scum a seat at a defendant table. No wonder the case against the current defendant in the US District Court of Massachusetts has had all bogus proceedings and filings. All three branches of the USA government have been infiltrated by multiple criminals

      Stop contaminating the discourse with this nonsense. Krystle Campbell died on April 15th, 2013, of cardiac arrest.

        Sorry PSW, but based on your above post, I trust Woody Box’s eyes more than yours. Hey Woody, show me how you know PSW is a provocateur. Again I’m sorry PSW, I don’t know if you are a government sockpuppet or not, but those pictures don’t match.

    • public_servant_watch

      Likely anyone who continues to promote bogus official LIES and claims death and injury is colluding.

  • SysCrusher

    If the FBI were investigating suspects in Cambridge before Collier’s death why would have been kept secret from JTTF representatives? Why did they avoid Grassley’s questions until his letter was published by Fox25? Why are so many local law enforcement officials saying otherwise to Fox25 journalists? Why does Boston Magazine act like it’s a conspiracy theory to question the FBI’s story? This is why it is hard for people to tell the truth about something when it doesn’t fit with the official narrative. Reporters like Susan Zalkind try to make them sound crazy. Hey Susan! you should read up on FBI’s history a little bit. You should be asking them questions like they are a suspect in a crime rather than treating them as priests who are relaying the word of god to you. You would be more productive at serving the public interest that way. You come off as very naive, but don’t give up. You may be a decent journalist yet!

    Krystle Campbell with Borderfree executive in the Summer Shack picture. Note the lady wearing pink and white stripes. The man is her husband who goes by different names and is related to Summer Shack as one of the restaurant’s managers. It seems the restaurant was used as a front to provide various alter identities.

    The bald man behind Krystal Campbell in the Summer Shack picture is also a Borderfree Executive- he too was at the bell ringing on Wall Street. He apparently wears a hair piece when in his executive role.

    Here Krystle Campbell is seen with another Borderfree executive; Campbell is sporing her more sophisticated look in the first picture. With the Krystle Campbell look she is with the same woman in the Summer Shack photo. Note the woman in the green shirt is Sr. Director, Client Management at Borderfree

    • SysCrusher

      It doesn’t look like her though. Seriously. In fact none of em do. I’m not trying to mean PSW, but you need better info backing up your assertions. All you have is pictures of people that don’t really look alike. I’m squinting as hard as I can and it ain’t a match.

    The only shopping in these pictures is the shopping that was done by the alleged criminals that first created them. Here is a collage of the many different looks of Borderfree’s Corporate Counsel who is the man center wearing black in the Summer Shack picture, and he, too, was at the Bell ringing on Wall Street. Note we have manipulation of eye color on both Campbell and this man; the man also has manipulation of the nose and ear appearance for the pictures taken with the goal of deception in a pre-planned fraud.His alter identity is as a a manager at Summer Shack.

  • public_servant_watch

    Another Borderfree Corporate Recuiter seen in the Summer Shack picture. Note the only blond woman. These more low level positions were entered into after the 4/15/2013 event including Campbell’s position. The higher level people were already in their positions.

  • public_servant_watch

    This kid is the son of a Borderfree Board Member. He was only 20 years old at the time of the Summer Shack picture. He lives in MO. He is seen to the far right (your right) in the picture. It is suspected that he is one of the trolls on Twitter who harasses, stalks and abuses any citizen who is trying to get the truth known.

  • public_servant_watch

    This man is seen by the door in the Summer Shack picture. His identity was discovered prior to the assessment of the group picture and then surprisingly showed up in the picture. Another investigator alleges that this man has had charge over the multiple shills trolling Twitter and other internet message boards and sites. All names will be posted when law enforcement takes action and formal charges are in process.

  • public_servant_watch

    This man and the bald executive who wears a hair piece can be seen in this Wall Street picture standing next to each other far right (your right) . It is believed this man is the man in white behind the gal in the green shirt in the Summer Shack picture. His position with the company has not yet been discovered.

  • public_servant_watch

    This executive is standing in the center part of the room divider. Apparently he is sporting a Summer Shack hat as the ruse was that this was the employee Holiday picture. He is a high level executive with Borderfree and apparently not only hangs out with celebrities but engages them in fraud as needed. I won’t tell you who the celebrity is here but if you blow up the Summer Shack picture his left shiny earring shows very clearly as it does in the picture with the executive validating it is the same man.

  • public_servant_watch

    This person, also an employee with Borderfree has an alternate identiiy as a chef at the Summer Shack. He has been with Borderfree since March 2012. He is standing (your right) in front of the room divider behind the man in the yellow hat in the summer shack picture. The man in the yellow hat also is well known and I will not be posting the pictures or his identity here just yet; he has some thinking to do! Note the other man with Campbell in this picture is a dead ringer for the company’s corporate counsel.

    • SysCrusher

      Hey why don’t you ever post any links? You just post miles of photos of people who don’t look alike, claiming they are the same person. I’m open minded man, but your posts are a little frustrating. A lot of people think you are purposely posting nonsense disinfo, so let’s at least see something of substance besides the collection of pictures you love to throw around. I’m with ya man, the official account stinks but, come on with with it already.

      • public_servant_watch

        What link do you want? The Campbell pics are all over the internet. You know how to google Borderfree, and I am not posting links with these peoples names until they are charged. If you think there are no look-a-likes with all these look-a-likes that’s your perception deficit v. willfull blindness and not my problem

        • SysCrusher

          Something besides the pictures. Don’t tell me you are too busy either. I’m saying the pictures don’t match and if all you got is a name of someone from a company, then you don’t have much.

          • public_servant_watch

            Sorry dude – I don’t argue with more than apparent shills and there is a whole parade of them out there to protect these people such as the site where that shill olcoach hangs out. Clearly Baby Blake AKA Joanne Atom got a better offer when she went from exposing all the fake in this event on Let’s Roll to the bogus promotion of more than obvious lies on her current site chased with just enough truth to make them look legit to just an innocent reader who has done zero independent investigation. “Never trust an atom they make up everything” is her fitting motto. I am willing to bet your’re one among those fools!

            Don’t get upset, I’m trying to understand you. I don’t know about Let’s Roll or Joanne Atom so you will have to explain more clearly.

    I tend to trust Henniger and the rest of the local law enforcement’s version more than I do the FBI’s ever changing accounts. Henniger isn’t the only officer saying this.

  • public_servant_watch

    You can find this Borderfree executive in the back in front of the room divider next to the owner owner of the Summer Shack. She too was at the bell ringing and will find her center front in the Wall St. picture. Strange Krystle Campbell AKA Alicia Campbell is seen sitting with all these Borderfree people at Summer Shack yet the shills still deny that is her at this Wall Street event.

    • wiseowl

      PSW, How does Campbell fit in with Henniger and the controversy of when the brothers were ID’d?
      What are your thoughts? thanks

      • public_servant_watch

        The entire thing is a fraud- just because it was allowed to carry as far as it did does not take away from the FACT that anything past this fabricated picture is irrelevant. How we got to that fabricated picture is what I am showing you with the Summer Shack photo and the associated alleged fraudsters.

        The wrong people are behind bars and multiple lives have been ruined because of this fraud. $$$ belonging to the taxpayer spent on BS to only further defraud. Here we have multiple entities who continue to profit off BS where the government in collusion with elite scum terrorized and defrauded the American people. Proximate cause is relevant!

  • wiseowl

    Thank you Sgt Henniger. You are a true hero.

  • Doomsday Diva

    Anyway, back to the actual subject, we still haven’t been told how Clarence Henniger knew the boys lived in Cambridge. And obviously the FBI are VERY concerned about what ‘conspiracy theorists think’ (and share), which says to me that there’s smoke from our fire. Every time we post, they scramble. Not to mention the huge media campaign to establish the ‘official story’ in the public minds. The FBI should now also know that we are watching Clarence Henniger’s back. Cos we wouldn’t want him going the way of ‘friendly fire’, now would we?

  • public_servant_watch

    Shills denying that we have a more than a touch of peculiar resemblance with the Summer Shack crowd when compared to the Borderfree crowd also denied that that these people looked anything alike. Meet the FBI that acted as civilian rescue, victims and moulage artist at blast 2.

  • SysCrusher

    Way to go officer Henniger. I like that this guy isn’t backing down. Notice he also says “we still have questions.” Thats right sir. Don’t stop asking them. Keep up the pressure. It makes no sense that the FBI would have secret units investigating before Collier’s murder and not telling the local JTTF reps. The FBI will not tell the truth without the good people in law enforcement like Henniger pressuring them. The JTTF is a shameful detriment to local police forces across the nation. It is a takeover by the FBI and is used to silence and control them. The FBI cannot be blindly trusted, especially in terrorism cases. FBI = Secret Police.

        PSW I have some advice for you. Go start a blog and post the gallery of photos you have collected there. Then you can just feature the links to your blog when you are leaving comments rather than hogging up all this space. Your photo analysis skills are lacking my friend and your posts are like graffiti, but not the artistic kind. They have no substance. You also have nothing to offer concerning the topic at hand. You spastically spout spam and add nothing to the conversation.

          SysCrusher This is a very serious matter and insults are juvenile, do not belong here. public_service_watch has produced evidence which HAS to be looked at. When you start with the insults, no one reads you any further…So keep it civil and your message might get read. Before you start insulting, can you show your research?

          • SysCrusher

            I’m sorry. The insults are juvenile, but I think my point is valid. You say PSW has “produced evidence which HAS to be looked at.” I disagree. I looked at it and these people look nothing alike. Plus PSW makes no attempt to add to the conversation. One or two pictures is fine, but this is ridiculous. He should start his own blog and link to it. And so while my remarks were somewhat juvenile, so is the behavior and “analysis” of PSW. I seriously question everything were told about the BMB, but these people are not the same, and if you consider his posts “evidence” I have to question your facial recognition skills as well. My main point is, quit it with the miles of pictures and make an effort to stay on topic. Otherwise it is comparable to someone who butts in to other peoples conversations yelling about some unrelated personal obsession.

  • olCoach

    This entire interview is a shade over 90 minutes. While the FBI foreknowledge and surveillance of the Tsarnaev home is the big headline, there were a number of other oddities in this interview. For example:

    1…Henniger drove by Collier on his way back to the office – waived at him but didnt get a response back from Collier – whose lights were on and car was running – 10:23….Is it possible Collier was already dead?

    2. When Henniger is alerted to dispatch being unable to raise Collier on the radio he drives back. As he approaches the car he notices people walking around in front and behind the car. What?

    3. Collier is sitting upright…Henniger was going to tease Collier about not picking up his radio – but notices he isnt moving – reaches in gets a feighnt pulse and realizes what has happened and calls for back-up.

    4. Later, Henniger says they couldnt find Colliers gun because he was slumped over? On scanners that night – from the report of Colliers firearm missing to the report when it was found – was over 15 minutes….

    And there is more: http://marathon.neu.edu/wburoralhistoryproject/clarence_henniger

    • CATHERINE UNWIN

      olcoach the only way we will know if Sean Collier was sitting upright is if we see the dash cam…which was destroyed with his car no doubt, ..grammar: I believe **waved**is correct spelling..

      • bluesandwine

        Catherine – you have no idea of that car is destroyed, let alone the dash cam that was recorded his whereabouts and the two brothers movements. You should do less talking and more research to know that have saved many vehicles for viewing, as they also have Video, DNA, Ballistics that tie these two brothers to the murder of Officer Collier. You must think these investigators are amateurs to destroy the data from those dash board cams – even if the car was destroyed (and that is not uncommon when a police officer dies in a vehicle so this not unusual) so stop spouting at the mouth and read the legal docs if you can read? I understand you twist this story anyway possible to show Tsarnaev innocent, but he is screwed when it comes to this murder…even if he did not pull the trigger himself, and we have yet to know that but his involvement carries the same penalty as he was right there during this ambush. You sit at your computer in Australia and act clueless to facts..not to mention I have seen your posts – and think you have a lot more issues that deciphering and understanding investigation data.

        • barbara

          It was reported in Wicked Local, the Cambridge newspaper that the cruiser was destroyed. You assume one or both the Tsarnaevs assassinated Officer Collier, but there has been no evidence of that shown as yet. It’s more likely that the armed robbery at the 7/11 store, less than one mile and mere minutes before Colliers death, is the connecting factor. Just recently a Cambridge police officer has reached out to the public for information on the possible identity of that robber. Police scanner audio reports the description of the armed robber as a 200 lb white or Hispanic man in a cowboy hat. A witness to the Collier crime scene reported a black man, 120 lb. 5′ 7″ running away. So, two men – cowboy hat, and black man with small build. Maybe these are the individuals seen in the surveillance video. There’s reasonable doubt here. Lets not jump ahead too much.

The “bombing” was 4/15/2013 then they LIED and whined how they could not get the FBI before them as the FBI were dodging hearings. The Congress has power it CHOSE NOT TO USE because they did not want the FBI before them anymore than the FBI wanted to be questioned from a witness stance!

    We also have Congress members traveling to Russia via photoshop and green screen to promote the bogus terror threat!! They are whores for the Military Industrial Complex and other corrupt corporate power achieved via $$$$ not appointment or election. http://ff.im/1gkN5R

    We know so much more than we did then, and it makes sense they were following up on leads for the bombing during the time Collier was shot. This MIT officer does not have the info to readily to say or go on record to say that was the situation…and while we don’t always know all the details it does not mean statistically that FBI lies constantly about all crimes, even the BB. We know now they investigated them but here is my idea why not on day 1 of this manhunt for these two brothers did they not comb their database for anyone who was every investigated for terrorism or radical extremism in the Boston and surrounding area? I am sure there are not thousands of suspects or people of interests in this small area – even if the files were closed. Being closed does not mean that at some point from 2011 a person’s views change, as we see they did not for Tamerlan. So I would like to know if the FBI did this, did the joint terrorism task of Boston, pull the files for those suspected of Radical Extremist Islamist or others who they either investigated or talked with or monitored. This is what I want from the FBI.

    Local law enforcement don’t believe the FBI Secret Police.

    Thanks for the article, S.Z. I like your recent choice of topics–it matters.

      I agree. I was a little critical of her use of the term conspiracy theorist earlier, but I do appreciate the coverage. Who else is asking the FBI these questions and getting responses?

    Here’s “Danny”! All of Water Town as well as the rest of this event is complete BS. The Borderfree/Summer Shack connection is unquestionable. All fraudster seen here> http://friendfeed.com/0p6dsummershack Hit the blue arror to see more pics Only those accepted as subscribers have access to full investigation & shills will be denied access http://friendfeed.com/0p6dsummershack/d6d8a015/lol-here-danny-look-like-they-added-little-extra Clearly these corporate people want the victims and the events to remain real with the focus on the just as guilty FBI because they are all in collusion, along with scum in the other two branches of this corrupt government, to DEFRAUD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE so pointing the finger at the one group that enjoys impunity while keeping this BS real is the way to go. Oh and note to shills- I don’t need you to tell me no one is a match because willful blindness has no merit! You do not get 17 corporation connected look-a-likes when comparing their individual pictures to the individuals in a group picture of supposed ordinary restaurant employees unless there is a connection and the connection is UNQUESTIONABLE. Let the prosecutions begin!!

    So people are still believing what the FBI says? That is shocking news!

    Snakes!!! Tamerlan told his mother the Feds had been contacted him and following him. These people are murderers and liars, and it’s just been found that the FBI hired a known criminal ex-police officer from Oakland who shot and killed Ibragim Todashev who had NOTHING to do with the Boston bombing. Dzhokhar had nothing to do with it either and that has been proven by video and photos on the internet. If Tamerlan was guilty then WHERE IS THE ALL THE VIDEO?!?!?!? Why did they confiscate all video from witnesses??? LIES. Martial Law went down in Boston.
