Here's an few excerpts to pique your interest:
[...] It started out when someone involved in the investigation blabbed to CNN that the feds had a photo of someone with the kind of large backpack used to carry and camouflage the 6 liter pressure cooker bombs and that they were seeking what was described as 'a dark skinned man'
So rather than act with the responsibility you might credit a 12 -year-old with and think about the possibility that they might be alerting a fugitive he was on the fed's radar, of course they broadcasted that information publicly, via CNN talking head John King and claimed an arrest had been made.
Of course, no actual arrest had been made, and CNN was reprimanded by the feds,but the damage of course was already done. Meanwhile, in a desperate lunge back to political correctness King walked back the 'dark skinned' remark ...
[...] These are three Arab males at the Marathon before the bombing,one of whom appears to toting a back pack of the kind used for the bombs.
One of them has a striking resemblance to Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was apprehended leaving the scene of the bombing with his clothes smelling of gunpowder and made several curious statements, declaring "I thought there would be a second bomb" and "Did anyone die?"
We were told he was not a suspect but was still being held as a witness, 'a person of interest'. But more on that later.
As I mentioned in the above link, Alharbi hails from the Asir province near Yemen, a part of the Kingdom where Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)is not exactly unpopular.So do his two roommates that lived with him in an apartment in Revere, a Boston suburb. One of those roommates my sources tell me is still being sought by the FBI and another is in custody over what are described as 'visa problems'.
You'll remember that after Alharbi was detained by the FBI, his apartment was searched and a number of bags of evidence removed.
But wait, there's more.
Alharbi has quite an interesting family background. As former terrorist Walid Shoebat reveals, our friend Alharbi has no less than six family members openly affiliated with al-Qaeda, plus another 5 who have served time at Guantamano. And in fact his entire clan has a significant jihadist orientation.
By this time, your jaw is probably dropping and you're wondering 'how did someone with this background get a visa to come to America'? Walk with me awhile.
While Alharbi was in custody and was declared a suspect, our Secretary of State had a routine press conference and photo op scheduled with the Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal. Usually these sort of things are public. But in this case, Secretary Kerry and Prince Saud al-Faisal abruptly canceled the presser and held a secret, behind closed doors meeting.
Shortly afterwards, it was announced that Alharbi was no longer a suspect and was simply a person of interest..in less than 24 hours since he was picked up.
And today, Alharbi, who supposedly had nothing to do with the bombing is going to be speedily deported as - wait for it - 'a national security risk'. ...
[...] If Saudis were involved in the Boston Marathon bombing, it's a rather nasty mutual problem.
Three months ago, the Obama administration ended post-9/11 restrictions on Saudis entering the US and put them on the 'trusted traveler list', which is how Alharbi and a lot of other Saudis with questionable backgrounds got in - not that there was ever all that much of a restriction on visas from young men from the Kingdom or other Arab countries anyway.
So if a Saudi national or nationals were to be linked with the Boston Bombing, it would point yet another finger at President Obama and his team's less than stellar performance when it comes to foreign policy and national security. One can only live off someone else's ordering the assassination of Osama bin-Laden so for so long, especially with the rest of the Middle East unraveling. ...
It's worth your while to take the time to read the whole thing.
Joshua Pundit's closing remark is perhaps the most telling. "To President Obama, this isn't really terrorism, in spite of what he finally admitted. It's a political problem to be handled." (Deja Vu Benghazi!)
