CNN's Candy Crowley on Sunday started to say that deceased Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev had posted "Islamic videos" online before apologizing and calling them "terrorist videos."

"We know that both the CIA and the FBI were told by Russia, their counterparts, 'You got to look at this guy, we think he's been radicalized. We think he’s a terrorist,'" the "State of the Union" host told panelists. "Then we have the fact that up came these, at some point after a trip to Russia and before it, up came Islamic videos -- or, I’m sorry, terrorist videos on his website. ... At least one department, Homeland Security I believe, knew he'd either come or gone to Russia. And he's putting up, you know, in praise of terrorism. Why in the world didn't anybody think, oh, wait, this is a danger sign?

CNN reported last week that Tamerlan Tsarnaev "posted and then removed a video of a jihadist leader" who had ties to an Islamic militant group.
