*This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
UPDATE 10:50am ET: Joel Cheatwood, President & Chief Creative Officer for TheBlaze, told Glenn on the radio show: “Just got a note from one of our investigative reporters that she has been told that there is now discussion that they may not allow this man to be deported.”
On radio this morning, Glenn broke the news that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi Student who was reported as a person of interest in the Boston Marathon bombing, is set to be deported under section 212 3B of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) – “Security and related grounds” – “Terrorist activities”.
An FBI source has told TheBlaze that the Saudi Student was “taken into custody”. This means, when we he was reported as a person of interest, he was actually a suspect the entire time.
An “event”, or file, was created on the student three days ago. The file contains his deportation record and the reason he is being deported. According to ICE the reason is section 212 3B –”Security and related grounds” – “Terrorist activities”. The students visa has been revoked.
The FBI said a file was started “just in case he was found to be connected to the crime,” however, the file shows he was scheduled to be deported. This was not precautionary, it was listed as “orders.” The file was immediately classified. Sources are telling TheBlaze the deportation order will be classified as well – requiring a FOIA to access it.
One agent told TheBlaze he believes a “voluntary” departure has been signed – that means the Saudi student could be out of the country as early as today. While the official story was going to be “he wanted to go home,” the student was actually being deported.
TheBlaze has been told that by a source that this “looks like they were trying to make this a ‘lone wolf’ crime, so the Saudi government would be spared embarrassment and the U.S. would avoid explaining how a terror cell was active when we had AQ on the run.”
One source at the FBI and another at the Saudi Embassy referred to the student as connected to an important Saudi family.
A source told TheBlaze that the FBI believes the Saudi student is tied to 2 to 3 more people.
Steve Emerson from the Investigative Project on Terrorism appeared on “Hannity” last night and revealed more information on the Saudi National.
Appearing on Hannity Wednesday night, the Investigative Project on Terrorisms Steve Emerson reported that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was briefly named a person of interest in the Boston Marathon bombings, is being deported on Tuesday. He based his information on a number of his confidential sources.
I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday, Emerson said.
Host Sean Hannity referenced a report by Reuters that revealed President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House Wednesday. They reportedly discussed the conflict in Syria.
The meeting was not on Obamas public schedule, the report adds.
Jeepers. Does Obama do anything on the up and up?
I mean, Obama could have shown leadership, but now it is looking like he ordered the FBI there to tamper with evidence rather than provide superior investigative abilities.
Re; Obama bows to Saudi king
“Saudies plead to Obummer hes a good kid....”
You don’t understand — Saudies do not have to PLEAD with Obama.
They tell him to fetch the stick and bring it back. And he’ll roll over and gets his belly rubbed like a good puppy.
You expect that arrogant pos to show leadership? You’re asking the impossible
Exactly. He can’t have a world of vengeance coming down on his muslim bros.
Did Moochelle Obama REALLY go to the hospital and MEET with this SAUDI??? That’s what I’m reading.....almost can’t believe the Obamas could be that stupid.
