Skip to comments.Saudi National Questioned in Boston was on Terror Watch List
Posted on 04/22/2013 7:29:52 AM PDT by kristinn
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.

In one picture, he has his fingers linked. He’d never do that if they were burned. Nope, that dog don’t hunt.
I went to Starnes homepage. He has a Twitter account there with the story title and a link. Went to the link, same result: “No results found”.
Right. Sikhs are good people.
I agree but.....everyone should be screaming....you let him in and gave him citizenship, now deal with it!
Below is the message I just sent to Rep Buchanan FL. My message also included the Fox news story now scrubbed. A similar email was sent to my Senator Marco “the-let-all-the-criminals-in” Rubio.
Dear Congressman Buchanan,
Have you asked the Obama Administration, the Secretary of State, the DHS Secretary, the DOJ AG, or any other official about the status of this person (Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi)? Was this person on a terror watch list? Was this person subsequently removed from a terror watch list? Does this person still reside in the United States? Has this person been deported under a cloud of suspicion? Is Congress going to investigate this situation?

I mean breaking here at FR. I thought I saw it in breaking earlier.
The blonde at the bomb site got numerous circles crayoned around him.
Please ping if you find anything in the photos re:the blonde imam.
DHS questioned over decision to let Saudi passengers skip normal passport controls
Published March 20, 2013
A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give “trusted traveler” status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers, opening the program to criticism for accommodating the country that produced 15 of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Okay, could be early misinformation that was out there.
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.
Saudi Students in U.S. Up More Than 500% Since Sept. 11, 2001
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).
I contacted my congresswoman, a Republican, and they are acting like this story is not true. She is believing the Dept. Homeland Security. I asked her aide to contact Congressman Duncan who has this document.
aye, aye, aye... it was hard to be sure because her foot is twisted the other way...
So who the heck APPROVED this VISA?>>>>>>>>>>>>
Someone who conveniently could not understand that he mispelled his name in the Visa Application?
I just read an older thread linked here. It’s the one that had the first pictures of the stuff being removed from this Saudi terrorist’s apartment. That article said he was taken to the hospital due to shrapnel wounds to his legs. It didn’t mention anything about burns on his hands, and I think that bit of info may not be true.
Article is gone
>More and more we look at it ? even the Global Warming Hoax and the Environmentlist movement is all tied to all of this, to bring down the US dollar and our economy. <
You could also say, the above is designed to keep us dependent on oil from the Middle East.
Thanks for the ping. The story of the Saudi student has been stinking to high heavens from the very beginning.
Now Fox News has scrubbed this article from their website, but other media sources had already copied and posted it.
This azzhole was on the terrorist watch list and “should” have been ineligible for a student visa in the first place. Next, he was supposed to be residing in Findlay, Ohio, but he was in fact residing in Boston. Next, he just “coincidentally” happens to be at the Boston Marathon. Next, he just happens to be standing close enough to where the first bomb exploded that he got shrapnel wounds on his legs. Next, he’s acting suspiciously enough that bystanders tackle him and detain him until the police take custody of him.
After the initial FBI investigation of him as a “person of interest” in the bombing, they classify his status as “3B”, meaning that the evidence of his terrorism classification is overwhelming.
Next, John Effen Kerry has a closed meeting with a Saudi minister. Next, Ozero has an unscheduled meeting with another Saudi official. The terorist azzhole is scheduled for near-immediate deportation and the FBI file shows it’s for national security reasons related to the bombing.
Next, his scheduled deportation begins to be leaked and the entries in his FBI file are altered just prior to Janet Napolitano smacking down a congressman for asking a question about the terrorist azzhole’s status.
There is enough smoke here that the thing is actually a blazing inferno. It may get tossed on the ash heap from Benghazi, where it will diasppear down the rabbit hole, along with the Benghazi survivors that no one can find or talk to.
We are living in very evil times.
> So who the heck APPROVED this VISA?
IIRC, Saudis don’t need a visa to enter the US.
Neither do Canadians.
Passport or other positive ID is good enough.
There is something seriously wrong here, and it deserves all the attention we can give it.
Was this Saudi-National on the terror watch list ?
If so, how was he allowed to enter the USA ?
If not, why was he considered a person of interest ?
How many other Saudi nationals are in the US ?
Of those, are any of them on the terror watch list ?
If so, why are they here ?
Are there “special” considerations and treatment for them ?
If so, why ?
I get the sense that this Gov’t, our Gov’t at the highest levels, has made a deal with the Saudis.
I get the sense that they also expect and are willing to allow them to recruit, mentor and facilitate terrorist activity in the US.
I get the sense that they, our Gov’t, wants to normalize terrorist attacks in the minds of the citizenry.
I get the sense that our Gov’t wants to use these attacks as practice for future police state actions.
That’s not her foot. It’s connected to the guy kneeling off to the side. I saw it that way at first, and thought OMG! I think the camera angle really distorts things....
The story is being scrubbed everywhere. What’s up with that?
There is a guy with a white sweater, sunglasses, and a gray backpack walking behind Martin Richard from the other side too.
Hannity on Radio covering now.
omgosh, you are right! i am glad that is not her foot!
So who the heck APPROVED this VISA?
Bank Of America!!!
Thank you for the web cache of the missing Fox News article that was originally linked at the top of this thread. It is still there as of 5:40 p.m. The text only version is there too. . .

This guy has a few family members locked up in Gitmo
