New information emerged Wednesday from U.S. officials that the name of one of the Boston Marathon Muslim terrorist, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, had been added to a U.S. government terrorist database long before the explosions.

The Associated Press broke the news on Wednesday night and explained, “The new disclosure was significant because officials have said the U.S. intelligence community had no information leading up to the April 15 bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260 others.”
