Report: “Innocent” Saudi visited by First Lady Michelle at hospital was up for Visa Revocation.By Shoebat Foundation.
Yesterday, terrorism expert Steve Emerson reported that the now infamous Saudi national Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi, who was briefly a ‘person of interest’ in the Boston marathon bombings, was scheduled for deportation next Tuesday.
A spokesman for ICE attempted to debunk this charge, which would seemingly discredit Emerson.
But alas, the government has been racking up quite a dubious history lately. At some point, its credibility must necessarily be incredible if this continues (didn’t the Obama administration blame a video for Benghazi attacks?). Now this…
Via The Blaze:
Documents have been presented to Congress confirming that plans were made to revoke the visa of Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a Saudi national once considered a “person of interest” in the Boston bombings, a congressional source told TheBlaze on Thursday.
Other sources, including one at the FBI, previously informed TheBlaze that there have been discussions about deporting Alharbi on “security and related grounds.” He has been living in the Boston area and in the U.S. on a student visa. An FBI source said the agency is against deporting Alharbi because of his status as a material witness.
The congressional source told TheBlaze it was unclear as to why representatives from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be unaware of this information. Earlier on Thursday, an official with ICE said it was “categorically false” that Alharbi had ever been considered for deportation.
The congressional source, however, said the information sent to Congress showed that a file was created on “Abdul Rahman Ali Al Harby” at 4 p.m. on Tuesday by an official with the National Targeting Center, a counterterrorism sub-agency of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Homeland Security. The file stated that the individual is “linked to the Boston bombing” and was to be processed for revocation of his visa based on national security grounds, the congressional source revealed.
Didn’t the FBI ask for tips?
Okaz, the same prominent Saudi newspaper, that published photos of Abdul Rahman Ali Issa Al-Salimi Al-Harbi in the hospital after the Boston marathon bombings, is now reporting that the Saudi national was also visited by the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama during his hospital stay.
Okaz stated further that the first lady also visited the other injured Saudi at the hospital, a female doctor named Nura Khalid Saleh al-Ajaji:
“Michelle Obama visited the two injured Saudis Abdulrahman Ali Essa Al-Salimi Al-Harbi and Nura Khalid Saleh Al-Ajjaji to check on their medical conditions.”
Adding credibility to this report seems to be multiple tweets made by the inner circle of the Al-harbi family: Now, contrarians to those with concerns about this visit will likely say that the first lady was simply paying visits to all the victims in the hospital, of which Alharbi was one and had been cleared two days earlier.
In light of recent reports that Alharbi was scheduled for deportation on ‘national security grounds’, the first lady’s visit takes on much added significance if those reports are true. We already know that the Alharbi clan consists of multiple Al-Qaeda members. This would seem to bolster the claims of scheduled deportation, not claims to the contrary made by the likes of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, who actually never really answered the question; she just got rankled and blew it off.
With the track record of this administration relative to things like blaming a video for two weeks after the Benghazi attacks, it should have a higher standard to meet and its credibility should be questioned by the American people.
If these reports about Alharbi’s scheduled deportation for such reasons are correct, a visit by the first lady of the United States would indeed be significant in its importance. It would also be a major national security blunder because of the message it would send.
In light of the exponential rise in the number of Saudi students in the U.S. since 2006, what kind of message does the first lady’s visit send to the more nefarious brand of Saudi students?
It would seem the American people should both require and demand full transparency from the administration when it comes to the issue of Alharbi’s alleged scheduled deportation as well as his connections to multiple Al-Qaeda members / leaders through his clan.Read the full story here and here.
Hmmmm.....Blogger Pastorius at InfidelBloggers has an interesting theory in which he claims the Saudi was the Ringleader and Financier of the Chechnian terrorists, i'm inclined to follow his thought pattern and i believe this lead should be investigated by the Law enforcement agencies.
"THIS SAUDI GUY ABDUL RAHMAN ALI AL-HARBI HE IS THE RINGLEADER OF THIS .
THE CHECHNEYAN GUYS ARE THE SOLDIERS.
AL-HARBI WAS LIVING IN A RAT-INFESTED APARTMENT IN ONE OF THE WORST PARTS OF BOSTON EVEN THOUGH HE IS A MEMBER OF A VERY WEALTHY SAUDI FAMILY,
THOSE TWO THINGS DO NOT GO TOGETHER HE WAS THE LEADER OF THE CELL."
