|How did Al Harbi get injured and end up in the hospital?|
|Al Harbi - person of interest in Boston Marathon bombing|
I am familiar with the Al Harbi's detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and they are a nasty lot. This whole Boston Marathon bombing smells like a rotten fish in Denmark! Secondly, Tsarnaev will not be read his Miranda rights. Since his alleged crime involved "public safety" he is not entitled to his Miranda rights. If I am not mistaken when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany he locked people up for violating German "public safety." The New World Order Supreme Court ruled this flounting of the U.S. Constitution "constitutional". Friends, another one of our rights has disappeared.
A Saudi Arabian newspaper is reporting that United States First Lady Michelle Obama visited in the hospital Saudi citizen Abdul Rahman Ali Issa Al-Salimi Al Harbi, the young man who had been labeled a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing.
The newspaper accompanied its report with an image of Michelle Obama, although the background was generic and it couldn’t be confirmed immediately that she was at the hospital where Al Harbi was being treated at the time. He reportedly suffered injuries in the Boston bombing.
“Okaz, the same prominent Saudi newspaper that published photos of Abdul Rahman Ali Issa Al-Salimi Al Harbi in the hospital after the Boston Marathon bombings, is now reporting that the Saudi national was also visited by the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, during his hospital stay,” Walid Shoebat reported.
The newspaper is more than half a century old and publishes out of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. It also publishes simultaneously in Riyadh.
It was CBS in Boston, and other outlets, that reported that President Obama and Michelle visited some of the victims of the marathon terrorism at hospitals in the Boston area yesterday.
It was reported the first lady went to Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as Brigham and Women’s Hospital, but the visits were off-limits to the media.
Reported Shoebat, “There were multiple reports that Al Harbi was hospitalized at Brigham and Women’s so that would seem [to] corroborate the Okaz report.
“Okaz stated further that the first lady also visited the other injured Saudi at the hospital, a female doctor named Nura Khalid Saleh al-Ajaji.”
Shoebat said there also were tweets from members of the Al Harbi family that added “credibility” to the report.
Reported Shoebat, “Now, contrarians … with concerns about this visit will likely say that the first lady was simply paying visits to all the victims in the hospital, of which Al Harbi was one and had been cleared two days earlier.”
But he added, “In light of recent reports that Al Harbi was scheduled for deportation on ‘national security grounds’, the first lady’s visit takes on much added significance if those reports are true. We already know that the Al Harbi clan consists of multiple AQ members. This would seem to bolster the claims of scheduled deportation, not claims to the contrary made by the likes of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, who actually never really answered the question; she just got rankled and blew it off.”
Wrote Shoebat, “With the track record of this administration relative to things like blaming a video for two weeks after the Benghazi attacks, it should have a higher standard to meet and its credibility should be questioned by the American people. If these reports about Al Harbi’s scheduled deportation for such reasons are correct, a visit by the first lady of the United States would indeed be significant in its importance. It would also be a major national security blunder because of the message it would send.”
Friends, this is a really sticky wickit!
Unsmiling Saudi people of interest in the above photo.
Personally, I think Al Harbi is more than a person of interest. The Saudi “person of interest” suspected of being involved in the Boston Marathon bombings is being deported from the United States next week on “national security grounds,” according to a terrorism expert, who notes that the move is “very unusual,” especially given an unscheduled meeting yesterday (Wednesday) between President Obama and Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal.
The attempt to cover up a possible Saudi connection to the Boston attack could explain why authorities are scrambling to get their official narrative straight after photos emerged yesterday on the Internet showing numerous suspects carrying large backpacks, some of them middle eastern in appearance and two of the individuals having been almost certainly identified as employees of private military/security firm Craft International.
The FBI had set a press conference for 5pm EST yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon but the event was cancelled hours after the photos were seen by millions of people online. The federal agency blamed the media for erroneous reporting, stating, “these stories often have unintended consequences.”
CNN also had to backtrack after they announced that a suspect had been arrested, a report that was subsequently denied by authorities. Reports of a “dark skinned man” being arrested were later mothballed.
According to terrorism expert Steve Emerson, 20-year-old Abdul Rahman Ali Al Harbi, the Saudi national first suspected of being involved in Monday’s twin bomb attack, is being hastily deported. Reportedly Al Harbi was taken to the federal court in Boston where nothing happened. I would speculate the White House intervened and stopped the federal procedure. The FBI and other authorities had to quickly back track and probably find some other scape goats and plant evidence on them. It also required getting the lame stream media to spin false stories and rumors. For example, that the Tsarnaev brothers robbed a 7-11 store. They did go to the 7-11 store to fill their car with gas, not rob it. Let me ask a question. Does a major fugitive, who allegedly is on the run, go to college class on Wednesday as one of the Tsarnaev brothers did? I don’t think so. Do high profile fugitives stay in the area where they have committed a crime? No, they flee.
Back to Al Harbi, he was put under armed guard in hospital after the bombing, was visited by Saudi diplomat Azzam bin Abdel Karim, and later had his apartment raided by federal and state law enforcement agents.
Emerson said on Wednesday night, “I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday, which is very unusual.”
On Wednesday afternoon an unscheduled meeting between President Obama and Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal occurred at the White House. Reuters reported that “The meeting was not on Obama’s public schedule.”
Emerson said, “That’s very interesting because this is the way things are done with Saudi Arabia. A foreign country doesn’t arrest their citizens. A foreign nation deports them, because the Saudis don’t want to be embarrassed and that’s the way we appease them.”
A scheduled 10 a.m. photo op between John Kerry and the Saudi Foreign Minister was also abruptly cancelled on Tuesday morning because Kerry was tired from his busy schedule, an explanation that journalists refused to swallow, with the Associated Press’ Matt Lee telling spokesman Patrick Ventrell, “I find it hard to believe that you expect us to believe that that’s the real reason for this.”
Joe Kovacs documents, that “Saudi student Al Harbi shares the same last name as a major Saudi clan that includes scores of al-Qaida operatives.”
The Al Harbi clan has long been active in al-Qaeda (AQ). Khaled bin Ouda bin Mohammed al-Harbi, for example, is a Saudi national who joined Osama bin Laden’s (UBL) mujahedeen group in the 1980s. He reportedly became an AQ member in the mid-1990s. He turned himself in to Saudi authorities in 2004 as part of an amnesty deal.
The BBC reported Khaled Al Harbi was married to the daughter of AQ’s number two, Ayman al-Zawahri. He reportedly appeared with UBL in a video praising the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Another top AQ operative is Adel Radi Saqr al-Wahabi al-Harbi, a Saudi national identified by the State Department as “a key member of an AQ network operating in Iran.”
Given the fact that the Obama administration has sent more than half a billion dollars and the CIA is shipping weapons to FSA rebels in Syria who pledged allegiance to and are led by AQ militants, the notion that one of these militants would carry out an attack on U.S. soil would be extremely damaging to the White House.
Joe Kovacs, an expert on terrorism says the Saudi national who was the original “person of interest” in connection with Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing is going to be deported from the U.S. next week. The foreign student from Revere, Mass., is identified as 20-year-old Abdul Rahman Ali Al Harbi.
Steve Emerson said, “I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday, which is very unusual.” The Reuters news agency reported President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal on Wednesday, noting “the meeting was not on Obama’s public schedule.”
After that meeting was mentioned, Emerson said, “That’s very interesting because this is the way things are done with Saudi Arabia. You don’t arrest their citizens. You deport them, because they don’t want them to be embarrassed and that’s the way we appease them.”

Meanwhile, Tuesday morning, a meeting Secretary of State John Kerry held with the Saudi foreign minister was abruptly closed to press coverage.
“The State Department initially provided no reason for the change, which was announced just 15 minutes before the scheduled 10 a.m. session,” reported Politico. But later in the day, department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said the preclusion of news media from the meeting was due to Kerry’s busy schedule. “This was just a scheduling change on our part,” Ventrell said. Journalists found the claim hard to believe, as they had been told the meeting would include a so-called “camera spray” at the beginning of the session. “Are you really trying to say that this [meeting was moved from a camera/photo op to being closed, for scheduling reasons? Is that seriously your answer: that because the secretary was tired after 10 days on the road and is going to the Hill tomorrow?” Matt Lee of the Associated Press asked.
“What I’m saying is he has a very tight schedule here in the building and elsewhere,” Ventrell said, noting the fact Kerry met with Al-Faisal amidst that busy schedule reflects the importance of the U.S. Saudi-relationship.
“So does it save time somehow, canceling the photo op? It doesn’t wash,” Lee replied. “I find it hard to believe that you expect us to believe that that’s the real reason for this.”
Saudi student Al Harbi shares the same last name as a major Saudi clan that includes scores of AQ operatives.
Some in the clan are senior AQ members while others are reportedly being held by the U.S. in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba.
Two Saudi nationals were injured in the bombings in Boston, with one, Abdul Rahman Ali Al Harbi, initially put under armed guard at a hospital. Al Harbi is studying in the U.S. on a student visa. A large group of federal and state law enforcement agents raided Al Harbi’s apartment in Revere, Mass.
CNN reported the search took place by consent, according to a federal law-enforcement source, meaning no search warrant was needed.
Now the Saudi embassy in Washington has said Al Harbi was no longer under detention and is not a suspect in the bomb blasts.
Nail Al-Jubeir, a spokesman for the Saudi mission in Washington, stated that U.S. authorities told the embassy “no Saudi national was a suspect in the Boston Marathon attack and that the Saudi national in question was a witness, not a suspect.”
Al Harbi’s Facebook page lists him as Facebook friends with at least seven other Al Harbis, located in both Boston and in Saudi Arabia.
One of the Al Harbis on his Facebook friends list, Ahmed Al Harbi, is listed as a pharmacy technician at the Saudi Ministry of Health. Most others live in Riyadh.
The State Department has offered a multimillion-dollar reward for the capture of Abdel Al Harbi, saying he is an Iran-based AQ facilitator who serves as the deputy to Muhsin al-Fadhl, who runs AQ’s Iran network.
The Saudi government’s list of 85 wanted AQ members includes several members of the Al Harbi clan:
· Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
· Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
· Khalid Salim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
· Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
· Abdullah Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
· Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi
Several Al Harbi clan members are being detained at Guantanamo Bay, including Salim Salman Awadallah Al-Saidi Al-Harbi, Majid Abdullah Hussein Al-Harbi, Muhammad Abdullah Saqr Al-Alawi Al-Harbi, Ghanem Abdul Rahman Ghanem Al-Harbi and Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awfi Al-Harbi.
Walid Shoebat warned us a couple of weeks ago about the serious problem of Saudi infiltration; many of these Saudi nationals criminals and terrorists.
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:
#15 Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#26 Khalid Salim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
#29 Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
#43 Abdullah Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
#60 Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi
Then you have Al-Harbi clan members in Gitmo:
Salim Salman Awadallah Al-Sai’di Al-Harbi
Majid Abdullah Hussein Al-Harbi
Muhammad Abdullah Saqr Al-Alawi Al-Harbi
Ghanem Abdul Rahman Ghanem Al-Harbi
Mohammed Atiq Uwaid Al-Awfi Al-Harbi on the right; the black flag is the AQ flag
There are specific Saudi clans that are rife with members of AQ. Nearly a hundred thousand student visas are issued to these Saudi Arabians. It seems American intelligence is clueless as to clan ties when it comes to terrorism.
