    Megyn Kelly reported Friday that the bombs used in the Boston Marathon attacks had to be detonated via a ‘line of sight’ trigger mechanism. According to federal officials this could mean there was a 3rd bomber or accomplice who may have been involved in the attacks. The range of remote control parts is within at least 250 yards or less. The remote control parts are also NOT a part of Al Qaeda’s Inspire magazine instructions. Federal investigators now believe a third terrorist could have been involved in the attacks.

    Tonight on Hannity, Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, reported that his sources are telling him that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was a person of interest for less than 24 hours, is being deported to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. Why? According to Emerson, based on National Security grounds. Reuters is reporting that Obama met today with the Saudi Foreign Minister in an unscheduled meeting: U.S. President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House on Wednesday and discussed the conflict in Syria, a spokeswoman said. The meeting was...
  • Saudi National in Boston Bombing being deported on "National Security Grounds"

    Steve Emerson just broke the shocking news that the Saudi National, Abdul al-Harbi, first questioned in the Boston bombing, is going to be deported on "national security grounds." He is from a very powerful Saudi family with many terrorist ties. Abdul al-Harbi is a devout Muslim from Medina. I said it takes longer than 15 hours to investigate all of Abdul al-Harbi's relatives, friends, acquaintances, and business and school friends. Perhaps a quick look at the Arabic sources should raise the eyebrows of every American relative to the extent of the problem at hand. Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are steeped...

    The dollar could collapse if Opec officially admits considering changing the pricing of oil into alternative currencies such as the euro, the Saudi Arabian foreign minister has warned. Prince Saud Al-Faisal was overheard ruling out a proposal from Iran and Venezuela to discuss pricing crude in a private meeting at the oil cartel's conference. In an embarrassing blunder at the meeting in Riyadh, ministers' microphones were not cut off during a key closed meeting, and Prince Al-Faisal was heard saying: "My feeling is that the mere mention that the Opec countries are studying the issue of the dollar is itself...

    The sands are shifting in the Saudi kingdom,... The questions began with the out-of-the-blue resignation of Saudi Ambassador to the United States Turki al-Faisal on Monday. Prince Turki said he resigned to spend more time with his family -- the usual excuse given for abrupt diplomatic departures -- but his absence has raised questions in Washington regarding the stability of the Saudi royal family. There is no question that Prince Turki's brother, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, is ailing, and that Prince Turki would want to ensure the al-Faisal faction stays intact by assuming his position should Saud end...

    Predictably, as tiny, democratic Israel fights again for its life against Islamic terrorists on all sides, the Europeans and the American mainstream press blame the victims. Was Israel threatening Gaza? No; at great cost, it left to the Palestinians a workable territory with many functioning farms and businesses that have now been destroyed by fanatics who want nothing to do with a peaceful and productive life. Was Israel threatening Lebanon? No; not unless you count just being there and occupying the territory mandated by the UN in 1947 as composing a threat. There are two obvious reasons for the upside-down...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Saudi Arabia's foreign minister says FBI and CIA agents in his country may question an employee of the Saudi civil aviation authority who befriended two of the Saudis involved in the 9-11 hijackings. That concession made, Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal expressed disappointment that President Bush would not declassify parts of a congressional report on the 9-11 hijackings. He said the refusal deprives the Arab kingdom of a chance to clear its name. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, but the Saudi government has asserted it had no involvement in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks....

    Saudi Officials OK U.S. Probe of Citizen By SCOTT LINDLAW .c The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush refused on Tuesday to release classified passages from a congressional report on possible links between Saudi Arabian government officials and the Sept. 11 hijackers. Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal agreed to let U.S. investigators question a suspected Saudi agent who befriended the hijackers. Bush said he would not comply with a Saudi request to declassify 28 pages from the 850-page report because it could compromise national security. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., the former vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, disagreed,...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, said on Monday that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein should make a war-ending "sacrifice" by stepping aside. "Since he has ... asked his people to sacrifice for the country ... he should be the first to sacrifice for his country," Prince Saud told ABC News in an interview. "If his staying in power (is) the only thing that brings problems to his country, we expect that he would respond to a sacrifice for his country, as he requires any citizen there to ... sacrifice for his country." He made the comments...

    Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister, Prince Saud al Faisal, has urged the United States to "have a breather" in its invasion of Iraq and give the United Nations another chance to disarm the country peacefully. "Stop the war, let's sit down, let's have a breather after what we have seen of the destruction," Prince Saud told Western journalists in the Saudi capital of Riyadh. The 61-year-old prince also called on Saddam Hussein to "start to think of the sacrifices he can make for his country", implying that the Iraqi leader should seek exile rather than see his country destroyed. While Saudi...

    SHARM EL SHEIK, Egypt, March 1 — The United Arab Emirates today became the first Arab country to call for President Saddam Hussein of Iraq to step down, presenting the idea to a summit meeting of Arab leaders as the only way to avoid an American-led war and the devastation it could cause the Iraqi people. "The Iraqi leadership should decide to give up power in Iraq and to leave Iraq," the president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahayan, declared in a statement issued here, saying he wanted to propose "a way out of this complicated...
