Another Terrorist Attack, Another U.S.-Saudi Cover-Up?
Town Hall ^ | April 19, 2013 | Diana West

Posted on 04/20/2013 10:58:25 AM PDT by opentalk

After the FBI rescheduled another postponed briefing on the Boston Marathon Massacre for 8 p.m. on Wednesday night -- and then canceled that one, too -- that was it. I was going to give the news circus a rest until morning.

Came the dawn I heard that terrorism expert Steven Emerson had dropped a bombshell Wednesday night on Sean Hannity's Fox News program. Emerson reported that Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national first identified as a "person of interest" and then downgraded, like a tropical storm, to "witness," would be deported from the United States "on national security grounds." This, Emerson added, "is very unusual."

Yes. But also no. Amid similar conditions -- a terrorist attack, an ongoing investigation and Saudi diplomatic pressure -- we have seen Saudi nationals spirited out of the country en masse in the past rather than be exposed to any part of an investigative process.

I refer, of course, to the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, when following a private meeting on Sept. 13 between President George W. Bush and Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi ambassador to Washington, "something strange began to happen," as former Florida Sen. Bob Graham writes in his 2004 book "Intelligence Matters." (As Senate Intelligence committee chairman, Graham co-chaired the Congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11.)

"Although the FAA had ordered all private flights grounded, a number of planes began flying to collect Saudi nationals from various parts of the United States." Within a week, Graham continues, 140 Saudis, including members of the bin Laden family, had been flown out of the country without ever having to answer a single question about anything.

Perhaps the expression, “Bush’ Fault” is not too farfetched.

As long as we are discussing conspiracies, I have been wondering, what really happened to Sunil Tripathi? he disappeared apparently and people do that all the time of course but then he became the chief suspect (briefly) in a major terrorism case. the word patsy comes to mind. Or maybe it’s all a coincidence.

I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that the troofers are right.

Only that it wasn’t Bush and the Jews, it was the Democrats and the muslims.

What did Obama know, and when did he know it?

If something happened to him, remember that he’s an indian. As such, he’s not exactly loved by the muslim community.

Lots of questions need to be answered.

Who were the para-military types at the marathon?

Why were some in the crowd told a drill was going on yet authorities denied a drill?

Were they conducting a drill?

If the military types were there for security why did they run in the opposite direction of the bombs instead of running toward them to render assistance?

Did authorities have prior knowledge that an attack was planned?

If authorities had prior knowledge could they have stopped it before the two suspects walked out their door?

If they could have stopped it and didn’t was the reason because this administration wanted to grandstand by stopping a terrorist attack as it happened? Instead it spiralled out of control.

What did Obama know and when did he know it?

Will the press who is always marching in lock step with Obama ever ask relevant questions?

I don't know. Tripathi seems like he's part of this enigma. why wouldn't they nab a scapegoat before executing their plan? and then use him to throw authorities off their trail.

It's hard to have a cover up without a patsy. Tripathi would have been a good one and you have to admit, he almost was.

The media will quickly sweep up the mess and ridicule anyone who brings up the issue.

And the wimp republicans in DC won’t do anything but if they do, Juan McLame and his posse will also go after any republican that does.

Yes. I wouldn’t be surprised if Tripathi was dead.

Look how right Bachmann has been about Muslim brotherhood influence and our government. Especially massive amount of aid and military equipment sent to Egypt

Today Larry Kudlow had Washington DC, former US Attorney Joe DiGenova on his radio show and DiGenova laid the blame for the FBI cutting the terrorist brother loose directly on Obama and his policy of Muslim appeasement.

It would not suprise me to learn that this Saudi kid was the ringleader and possibly cash man for the Boston bombing. He’s likely a member of the royal family and they own Obama.

Maybe the plan was to substitute the “mystery loan wolf” suspect that the FBI was holding prior to cancelling the 5PM press conference. Suddenly there was a bomb threat and the courthouse had to be evacuated and we have not heard another word about this person since. I’m guessing by now he’s at the bottom of a well somewhere.

Now things are starting to unravel, the FBI deportation order is in the hands of 6 Congressmen and the administration is in the immortal words of Gordon Ramsey “in the sh@t”.

Moslem appeasment.

Saudis bankroll jihad. Moslem Valerie Jarrett controls Obama. Obama bows before Saudis. Chewbacca rushes to Saudi’s hospital bedside. Saudi whisked out of country... just like with Bush.

When will people wake up? The Saudis are enemies. They control the WH.

>>Tripathi would have been a good one and you have to admit, he almost was.

Did I miss something? I don’t recall him ever officially being fingered as suspect.

The truth is that quite a few people within the government ignored the warnings and turned a blind eye to the evidence from a few brave Americans. And we know what the motive was for government employees to not help the government they were working for at the time. Bush was selected and not elected. They were crying about Al Gore. Seems kinds stupid now, hey lefties, since Al sold Current TV to the same Islamic terrorists.

for some reason, he entered our perception as a person of interest at one point. One could hypothesize that he was an intended patsy of a detailed plan which fell apart. As long as we’re discussing cover ups and conspiracies.

I just observed Norwegian tweeps discussing how punishing the poor tchechen would be impossible given proper judicial review.

We need a global pogrom.

Personally I never saw any hint of him being anything other than as described. Where in the world did any suggestion of a connection to the bombing come from? I think was because he is young, a student, Asian, and had a Che T-shirt. Ridiculous.
