Skip to comments.Saudi terror cell, possibly al Qaeda, behind Boston Marathon bombings. Manhunt for escaped suspect
Posted on 04/16/2013 2:22:56 PM PDT by Fred
FBI Special Agent Richard Deslauriers told reporters Tuesday, April 16, that the probe had no leads 18 hours after two explosions blew up at the annual Boston Marathons finishing line, killing three people and injuring 176 17 critically. debkafiles counterterrorism sources can disclose however that the investigation has in fact homed in on a suspected terror cell of three Saudi nationals, very possibly tied to Al Qaeda. The flat they share in the Revere, Massachusetts, near Boston, was searched after the questioning of one of the suspects, a Saudi student, who was hospitalized with badly burned hands. One of his flatmates was taken into custody over visa problems. A third is on the run. All three hail from a prominent Saudi family belonging to a tribe from the Asir province bordering on Yemen.
The search for the wanted man led to the grounding of a plane at Logan International Airport Tuesday. The investigation has meanwhile broadened out to places in and outside Boston in a search for the cells accomplices.
The origins of the Saudi cell, if confirmed, strongly suggest that Al Qaeda of Arabia AQAP succeeded in planting a cell in the United States for the bombing attack in Boston and possibly more than one in other parts of the US. Asir Province is known as a hotbed of resistance to the Saudi throne in Riyadh.

“No leads?” None? If true, that is NOT good.
Would be interesting if it wasn’t “Debka” reporting it.
They put those involved on a 747 direct to Saudi like they did the last time with 9/11.
Well I am feeling so much safer knowing one is in the hospital and one is in custody on visa issues, and the 3rd one is not getting out through Logan Intl. /s
Typical DEBKA. They post about a Saudi cell right after the FBI releases the Saudi student and says he had no part in the bombing. Those DEBKA guys sitting in their Tel Aviv flat eating kosher pizza sure do make up some cool stuff.
Actually, if Debka reports it, you can be fairly confident that it’s NOT true.
The Michael Moore version of history! Big fat and stupid!
I know debka has a questionable reliability factor, yet they have been right, or partially right numerous times.
The “M.O.” suggests it is as they say.
What's to succeed when you're given cover by a _resident and his muslim administration.
The guys at the airplane schools were too confused and afraid to report a bunch of Saudi's taking SIM lessons on flying only .. no take-offs, no landings.
NO neighbors EVER heard or saw ANYthing just a little hinky about these guys ?
NO one is so good they can hide their anxiety from everyone (imo)
That’s according to Special Advisor to the US National Security Council, Richard Clarke, in his testimony to Congress about the roll he played after 9/11. He specifically said he cleared the 747 containing members of the bin Laden family to leave the US while all other aircraft were grounded. Members of the bin Laden family on the plane did get a very superficial questioning by the FBI before the plane departed.
if Muslims in general hate and want to kill Americans as their religious doctrine commands they do, why the hell are they even allowed to enter this country let alone the one being in the WH?? Answer; to kill innocent Americans.
Do you think this Administration and its media will report ANY linkage to muslims or their allies?
0bama/Holder are of like mind.
Debka gets certain things right.
The rest of the cell is long gone.
And what do you suppose the involvment of the Bin Lauden family in the USA was to 9-11?
You said they put those involved on 747’s - not those RELATED to the guy in charge.
Holding the Bin Lauden family responsible for 9-11 would be like holding the Hearst family responsible for what their radicalized daughter did.
“....strongly suggest that Al Qaeda of Arabia AQAP succeeded in planting a cell in the United States....”
Just a cell?
When you have 80,000 Saudi students in America alone you can rest assured that there are plenty more than ONE CELL.
America is under siege and only the enemy knows it.
Without a thorough interrogation?
Maybe he will just run across the boarder, its not like we could stop him.
The family are wealthy supporters of the Saud family, if they have any politics at all.
Osama Bin Lauden wants to overthrow the Saud family. He would no doubt like to line up his half brothers against a wall and shoot them, them and their children.
We have a really good history on what all the hijackers on 9-11 did up till their fiery deaths - not one of them was in contact with Bin Lauden’s wealthy family in the USA.
I think special treatment shipping them out of the country was over the top - but people wanted blood - and they were NOT the correct target!
This Debka article was already zotted
Just because the fbi released this guy does not mean he was no involved.
If you trust anything the fbi feeds us then you are foolish.,
Might explain American Airlines shut down of all domestic and international flights? They are trying to prevent the Saudi perps flight home.
Hmm, Debka or our own gov? I’ll go with Debka.
Where’s that old map of all the cells in the US? I’d imagine these days it’d be easier to mark the areas without cells.
They have NO interest in the American people knowing that islamists attacked us and have EVERY reason to want the news media spreading misinformation about right wing terrorism.
And they have no reason to fear a watchdog press.
Could not have said it better
Are you saying that none of his family knew what he was up to?
Other than that he was a radical Islamist who thought they were decadent westernized and deserving of death, no.
