Boston Marathon Attack - Saudi Room Mate Interview
WHDH News ^ | 16 April 2013 | Byron Barnett

Posted on 04/16/2013 11:37:12 AM PDT by gandalftb

REVERE, Mass. -- FBI agents searched a suburban Boston apartment overnight.

7News spoke with Mohammed Bada, a resident of that apartment. Check out the video for what he had to say.

Check this Saudi out......

Early in the interview, I thought I heard Bada say the detained Saudi was his cousin.

BTW, there are about 1,000 Saudi students in the Boston area.

There is a report that the three Saudi's are from the Yemen-Saudi order area, wealthy families.

The FBI didn't detain him but you can bet he's being watched.

I thought John Kerry said foreign students were all terrified of being shot in the US.

I don’t think the guy did it...

.... he wouldn’t wait around a ‘ticking’ bomb...especially not close enough to be as injured with the burns they’ve reported he had....and not so foolish as to go to a hospital for assistance.

However the authorities have said “no stone unturned” which would include him and others as well.

So, he didn’t know about the bombing and he didn’t know what the police took from the apartment. Riiiiight. The reporter tried to play it off as a language barrier but the guy was speaking very well and at the end he laughed and sounded very “American” in the way he said you guys need to let me get to school. Whether his friend/cousin had anything to do with it, this guy was very much in lie-to-the-infidels mode.

My guess the attackers were probing the crowd looking for the most effective placement. The is a BOLO report looking for a person of interest that tried to access the bleacher area and was turned away.

Perhaps the detained Saudi lost track of time and the blast occurred while he was nearby guarding the bomb drop.

Almost certainly the bombs were on a timer. The detainee suffered a minor leg wound from shrapnel so he was nearly at a safe distance, took off running and was tackled by a citizen and held.

Pressure Cooker bomb, it means either Pakistani, Bangladeshi, or Afghani are involved. They had good practice on Indians.

“Just heard on Fox the Saudi kid has been RULED OUT as the bomber.”

There has been some disinformation so far. He may be involved in some other way, lookout, etc.

I agree, it seems unlikely that the three Saudi roommates were directly involved as they would have arrested/detained Bada.

I just don’t think this is the guy.....his face book and the information about him is pretty typical for a SAudi Student.....one has to consider their culture upbringing.....guns and such are not unusual...”pretty “ ones at that are a status symbol.

His legs were burned....if you look at the fire blast he could have easily just been watching the race as others who were injured.

Just doesn’t stack up....I still do not think he’s the guy.

Pressure cooker bombs have been around for some time as you say. The technology is widely available on the internet.

This style of bombing attack, the loose Saudi connection, non-government target, big crowd target, smacks of AQ.

I'm not surprised...but I bet he's going to catch the first plane out of here! I understand he comes from a prominent Saudi family...no doubt they want him home.

That Saudi kid could've been told by the perps to "meet someone there" and ended up realizing he'd be a suspect, unknowing of the bombing beforehand.. Fall guy, if you will. But the link to Islamic extremism is still there, however. I did analysis of the flags in front of the bombing and it appears to have occurred behind the South African and flag of Spain, or possibly Sweden.. Here's the flag group:

Will the FBI also interview the other 80,000 Saudi students?

Probably some, depending on where the tips and leads direct. But 80,000 nationwide...of course not.

“....and not so foolish as to go to a hospital for assistance.”

Since he was caught at the scene and taken to the hospital under police guard, he didn't have much choice in the matter.

That is right. No one who has ever built a bomb has ever been hurt by it. Just like no one has ever been burned by a fire they have started or been shot by their own weapon...

Islamist or anarchist seems most likely. Patriots Day event would make a good target for an occupy/anarchist nut. Then again it could be a screw loose Eric Rudolph type also. Anything possible at this point.

The terrorist(s) don’t necessarily have to live in Ma to live in Metro Boston. Even Kennebunkport, Maine is considered suburbs of Boston these days. Could very well be a Somali from Southwest Maine for all we know.

I have read of pressure cookers in that general area. That’s what I thought of when I heard it - the India subcontinent area.

Hmmm,I’d like to bring to your attention the multiple suicide bombers we have all read about over the years.

This happened in Canada a few years ago. Home grown terrorist injured himself setting up the timer of a bomb in a public bathroom stall. Nobody got injured except the terrorist. Glad it happened to him but it could have been much worse. Now we have Boston. When are we going to begin talking sanely about Arabs?? Their culture hates women, jews and anybody who disagrees with them. They also consider immigration to be jihad. When are going to stop political correctness and begin speaking the truth about awful cultures?

He wasn’t a suicide bomber or he’d have belted himself.

Look ...it makes no sense at all the guy would hang around in a crowd ‘where many people could identify him’. And he knew the bomb was ticking.

Now it would be another story had he had his body wrapped in bombs..and hollowered ya-ba-dab-a- do....

Guy’s clan in Saudi Arabia is connected to terrorism and he was even on a list of terrorists per Whalid Shoebat ex-PLO on the Michael Savage show. “They” don’t want it to be an Arab or an Arab from Saudi Arabia because they don’t want to be embarrassed so they will sweep it under the rug per Shoebat. They don’t want to mess with their Saudi masters. The Saudis are where the Wahhabis get their financing and from there comes AQ. Per Shoebat Obama’s uncles have been financing Wahabbi.

Look...not every thing has to be connected or needs to have some government theory other than what it is, because some things ARE just what they are. We are given common sense and reason. Remember Oklahoma?... how they tried to tie in this and that ...all sorts of assumptions. ....and what was the final outcome?

It is too early to arrive at any conclusions ... the FACT is the guy was “person of interest” only.....he was cooperative from the beginning...bottom line they have determined he is NOT a suspect.

Now people can draw all kinds of conclusions and do...but I did not think this guy was a part of it and I still don’t...regardless of what Savage thinks.... IMO who did this is on the lose still. I prefer following whatever leads we’re given or find that will lead to his capture...or their capture..whatever.
