Skip to comments.Saudi National Questioned in Boston was on Terror Watch List

The Saudi national who was initially detained and then ruled out as a suspect in the Boston Marathon terrorist attack had been flagged on a terror watch list and was granted a student visa without being properly vetted, sources have told me.
A source close to the investigation revealed that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi had been deemed inadmissible under the section of the Immigration and Nationality Act which declares ineligible for a visa any alien who is engaged in or is likely to engage after entry in terrorist activity.
At least two additional sources have confirmed to me that Ali Alharbi is set to be deported as early as this week, contrary to statements made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official told me that it was a case a Saudi being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The official, with knowledge of the case, said Alharbis status has changed but as it now stands he will be sent back home.
They dont like the negative press, the official said of the Saudis. The guess is he will probably be allowed to leave without a lot of hype in order to avoid political sensitivities with the Saudis.

lol; I was replying to your previous post while you were posting that photo. I’ll be on lookout for him in any of the photos I see.
Where are the pictures you refer to?
Notes from today’s Beck radio program to add to your link. I haven’t verified if his facts are accurate.
Jan 14 Obama met with Saudi minister
2 days later Big Sis came out with trusted traveler for Saudi Arabia
France and Germany are not trusted travelers.
Not too blonde in the photo but it's winter.
That guy in the blue jacket just creeps me out.
Ears close to head, narrow, sloping shoulders, tall forehead? Actually the guy in black he seems to be conferring with looks more like the Imam.
So, we have what 6 guys now at the bomb site in Islamic photos? I’m still wondering about RoofGuy.
They're not making it harder to get into this country, they're making it easier.

on her back
WELL THIS TIME IS BUSH’S FAULT!
A bald guy?
The more interesting one is one showing the younger brother in the white cap, standing 2 feet behind the 8 year old little boy that was later killed in the blast. Chilling!
Also, the guy in blue on the left.
Not the same guy.
The interpretation I put on it:
Al is the word 'the' in arabic. 'Al Queda' = 'The Base' etc.
And according to the koran, there are two contending forces at work in the world. Dar al Harb and Dar El Salaam. Dar al Harb is 'The House of War' and Dar El Salaam is the House of Peace.
Dar El Salaam is everything muslim in the world and Dar al Harb is everything non muslim in the world. And the way the koran reads, everything in the Dar Al Harb (non muslim) will be brought under the control of Dar al Eslaam (muslim) before all of the fighting is finished.
I think his name is a play on 'The House of War' and how he's going to conquer them.
But that's just me. Your milage may vary :)
I’m sure everyone knows this, but for those who don’t you can hit ctl and + to zoom in on a page and ctl and - to zoom back out.
And even though he is supposedly rich and well-connected, he decided to live (hide?) in Revere (one of the dumpier areas around Boston).
