I still find it weird how they supposedly learned how to make a bomb online when the NSA checks our internet searches, since one there’s certain trigger words so if they were googling things like ” how to make a bomb” or “bomb material” those are trigger words and two the russian government had…
It was Tamerlan who was on a list, and was later cleared. If I remember correctly, it was in Katherine’s laptop/computer that they found some of these searches, and on Jahar’s laptop.
His parents said that when the FBI/CIA asked Tamerlan why he was looking up all those things, he said something like “it was interesting”, so he was cleared.
This is a complicated subject when it comes to rights, constitution, freedom and privacy. Like one could argue that maybe they should have paid more attention since he kept googling about it- only because he was on terror watch. But then again, the information is out there, if your curious then who’s to stop you. We live in a ‘free’ country. You shouldn’t be judge by what you google! Idk, I’m just throwing some thoughts here. Like i said, it’s complicated. And the same applies to travel, I guess. One could argue, wait the googling thing, the 6 month trip, idk seems suspicious- again being on terror watch. But then again, he was free to do so. You shouldn’t be judge by when, where and how long you travel. Passports and visas determine that! So my point is, there’s a fine line between dealing with the situation in a constitutional manner vs national security.
I get that he has the freedom to do what he wants but I mean in all honesty they’ve thrown a bunch of our constitutional rights out the window, privacy being ine of them, so if they saw alk this activity going on in my opinion they should of taken some action and done something
