    communications problem with Russia. Our embassy there tried to get more info, numerous requests not responded to.

    Bottom line is something that is huge in health care. Communicating a problem is not enough. If no action, insufficient action, or inappropriate reaction is taken, the people with first line responsibility have to pursue it. (Which usually means the nurses, even over multiple shifts.)

    I believe Feinstein and others have pointed out the recurring problem that was not solved post 911, is the stovepipe (or silo) configuration of intel and security agencies. Need to know, loose lips, etc. keeps or delays info from being shared appropriately.

    I think there were other signs here. Tamerlan was kicked out of the mosque he had been attending and the aunt is reporting they have refused burial. The mosque has also been reported as supporting people with radical ideas.

    The local police had been called to the home when the parents were both still there for numerous loud domestic arguments. Do they have any protocols to hook a couple up for counseling?

    OTOH, after Sandy Hook, there was a report on school programs developed after Columbine to educate students (and teachers) about forewarning comments. Something that most of the shooters had made and were not recognized until afterward. Where students were educated in this and given contact people who were trained to investigate with caution, the cooperation was significant. No specific number was given, but apparently more than a few incidents were averted.
