Injured Saudi is a witness, not a suspect, in Boston bombing
Washington Post ^ | 4/16/2013 | Greg Miller

Posted on 04/16/2013 10:03:22 AM PDT by Braak

U.S. law enforcement officials said Tuesday that a Saudi national injured in the Boston Marathon bombing is regarded as a witness, not a suspect.

The Saudi, who is recuperating at a Boston hospital, is in his 20s and is in the United States on a Saudi scholarship to study at a university in the Boston area.

Could be.

However, when the source if the WaPo - one must believe it about as much as one would believe a mullah, or a certain dorky president.

He set the bomb off and witnessed it going off. Richard Jewel is the real suspect.

Label him as a witness. Then after he spills his guts, let his cohorts deal with him.

The Saudi might very well be innocent but the bombing itself looks increasingly islamic inspired.

Good one. And they probably would've ignored any connection whatsoever if bystanders hadn't noticed him acting suspiciously after the blasts, tackled him and held him for authorities. It is going to be a little tough to get that toothpaste back into the tube.

If he is only a witness, guess he will be able to leave the hospital when he is healed.

Why would a witness have his apartment searched and his roommate interviewed?

Perhaps he is a “witness” because that let them hold him without charging him?

Of course he is. He probably saw a white guy in a plaid flannel shirt, Carhart coveralls and a John Deere gimme cap drop the pressure cooker bomb in the trash barrel and run from the scene, hopping into a F250 with an NRA bumpersticker on it, and speed away from the scene.

Of course. That's what happened.

I saw one report in which law enforcement officials were said to have claimed that nothing was found at the Saudi’s apartment to connect him to the crime. If true, why were officials seen carrying bags of “evidence” out of the apartment?

Yea!I guess he’s a witness untill the U.S.Government spirits him away back to Saudi Arabia where we can’t touch him.

Something smells here and it’s sure not the dead fish on the dock.

You silly goose! Don't you understand that the officials were so embarrassed about profiling a Muslim that they were just cleaning his apartment and taking out the trash as penitence for suspecting the poor innocent student?

Richard Jewell used the Iranian time machine to leap forward past his expiration day to confound investigators? The work of a mad genius. Or at least madness...

At this early stage of the investigation, the cops/agents who executed the search warrant would have cast a wide net, and taken just about anything they found from the apartment that could possibly be evidence, or could possibly be linked to the bombing. Things like the guy's computer, bags of clothing (to check for residue), cookware, etc. Doesn't mean that what they found was ultimately linked to the bombing.
