Steve Emerson broke the shocking news last night that the Saudi national, Abdul al-Harbi, who was 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 that 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 in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda[.]

When I heard he was from a very powerful Saudi family, I worried about this kind of thing happening.

Secretary of State Kerry’s meeting with the Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal was abruptly closedto the press the day Abdul al-Harbi was being questioned. There is no doubt in my mind that this was discussed.

Today’s embarassing display of rolling incompetence and badly mangled leaks led to numerous cancellations of press conferences, mis-identified suspects, promises of imminent arrest, walking back the arrest announcement, and more. They said they would release a statement and then said they wouldn’t.

Very smelly.

  1. If this Saudi national has to be deported because it's in the interest of U.S. national security interests, why is he leaving so quickly? If this guy had been named Rosenberg or Goldman and deported to Israel, the entire Internet would be frantic with anti-Semitic "Jews control the world" theories.

  2. Really?? just some garbage? Why did Kerry meet with the Saudi Foreign Minister on Tues and then Obama "just happens" to run into the same Foreign Minister on Wed. Why did the FBI designate this Saudi as a 212-(3) (B) terrorist? Why was this Saudi the first person of interest questioned by the FBI? Why is he being deported tomorrow? yea…just garbage.
