Is Obama Covering Up Saudi Role In Boston Bombings?

War On Terror: Could it be happening again? Could a Saudi terror cell be behind another major U.S. attack? And could the Saudi government be trying to sink the investigation?

After 9/11, the Saudi ambassador demanded the evacuation of dozens of Saudi nationals, including bin Laden kin, before the FBI could properly question them. He got his wish, even though 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis and others had ties to the plot.

Eerily similar high-level intervention is taking place in the Boston bombings case. Consider this timeline:

Jan. 14, 2013: President Obama meets in the Oval Office with Saudi minister of interior.

Jan. 16: Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano signs "arrangement" with Saudi minister bestowing "trusted traveler" status on Saudi student visitors, shortcutting normal security screening procedures.

April 15: Saudi college student Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi is seen near the Boston marathon finish line with two other Saudis. He's tackled after fleeing the scene of one of the bombings. Authorities question him.

April 15: FBI agents search Alharbi's apartment, leave with bags of evidence. He's described as a "person of interest" in attacks.

April 16: Secretary of State John Kerry secretly meets with the Saudi foreign minister, locking out reporters who initially were told the meeting would be open.

April 16: Saudi ambassador phones several papers and insists neither Alharbi nor any Saudi nationals are involved in the bombings. Saudi officials visit the well-connected Alharbi at a Boston hospital.

April 17: Officials clear Alharbi, who's reportedly related to al-Qaida Gitmo detainees, as a person of interest.

April 17: FBI ID from photos and videos two Mideast-looking men with bags scouting scene of bombings and circulate them among law enforcement. AP, CNN and even Boston Globe report one arrest has been made. CNN describes suspect as "dark-skinned male." Media swarm Boston courthouse for arraignment.

April 17: Obama has sudden unscheduled meeting with the Saudi foreign minister at White House.

April 17: Justice Dept. scolds CNN for arrest report. FBI cancels press conference. Courthouse bomb scare.

April 17: Terror expert Steve Emerson reports ICE has been ordered to "deport" Alharbi for "national security" reasons, out of reach of FBI questioning.

April 18: Napolitano denies Alharbi will be deported.

Did the Saudi minister request diplomatic-level immunity? Did Obama sign off on a "voluntary" departure?

"The level of coincidence required for the Saudi kid Ali Alharbi to be at the Boston Marathon at the time of the bombing and near the finish line where the bombs went off is staggering," a DHS official told IBD.

Why was he there? Was he cheering on someone running in the race? We don't know, and if he's allowed to leave the country, we may never know.

The State Department abruptly closed Secretary of State John Kerry's meeting with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal on Tuesday amid reports that police questioned a Saudi national in connection with Monday's bombing in Boston.

The 10 a.m. bilateral meeting was scheduled to be preceded by a camera spray for news photographers. Shortly before the meeting the media were told it would be closed, without explanation.

Report: Michelle Obama Visits Saudi National Alharbi in Hospital

Saudi exchange student, and Boston bombing victim, Ali- Alharbi is seen smiling while standing next to what appears to be a Saudi diplomat in the hospital. Arab News says the man is his father.

Yesterday, Michelle Obama reportedly visited Saudi national al-Harbi at the hospital in Boston.
Shoebat reported, via Free Republic:

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.

Michelle Obama visits Saudi 'person of interest' in hospital

The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) has visited two Saudi nationals in a Boston area hospital, one of whom was recently a "person of interest" in the recent Patriot's Day terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon, as reported by Saudi Arabian news portal Okaz.com via the right-of-center US-based website TheBlaze.com on April 19, 2013

As cited, Steven Miller, a researcher at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, translated the Arabic-language article into English for TheBlaze.

"Yesterday, Michelle Obama, the wife of the American President, visited the Saudis in the hospital who were injured in the Boston bombing, Abdul Rahman Ali Isa al-Salmi al-Harbi and Noura Khaled Saleh al-Ajaji, to reassure them of their health."

Noura al-Ajaji underwent a third surgery yesterday to repair and beautify the thigh area, just above the knee, treat skin damage caused by shrapnel, and remove fragments. This was the third round of the treatment plan for al-Ajaji; the first phase focused on sterilizing the wounds, and the second focused on healing the gash caused by glass shrapnel. Medical reports issued by the hospital yesterday confirmed the complete integrity of her knee and thigh.

Al-Ajaji, who is a master’s student in cosmetic dentistry, was injured by flying glass fragments from the nearby Colby glasses store, which she was nearby during the Boston Marathon bombings, resulting in an 11 centimeter gash in the thigh area."

Officially, the FLOTUS visit was closed to the media and made known to the public with little advance notice "due to security reasons."

There are conflicting reports that al-Harbi will soon be deported to his native land under section 212 3B (security and related grounds) and had opened an "event/file" on the Saudi Arabian national following the Boston attacks.

The Blaze quoted an unnamed official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) saying that any plans for deportation are "categorically false."

However, the Glenn Beck-ran news site has posted a link to a past article citing the US Congress has in their possession documentation confirming plans to revoke al-Harbi's visa.

Questions of the Saudi news site credibility are for naught as the left leaning magazine The New Yorker refered to Okaz as "the most popular newspaper in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia" in a Jan 5, 2004 article.

Why would John Kerry close the meeting with the Saudi foreign minister when he said it would be open?

Why was the visa to go to college in Findlay Ohio, but with a Boston MA apartment?

The Saudi is connected, but they are trying to sweep it under the rug to quietly deport him to Saudi Arabia where he will almost certainly be tortured, throwing fits in the professional left.

My theory is that it isn't us he's trying to pull one over on. It's his base.

Really? Even though they were on a terrorist watch list?

So, let me get this straight: The President of the United States and the First Lady visit a Saudi on the terrorist watch list, but they shun one of the Newtown parents who lost a child because he has come out and publicly disagreed with the calls for more gun control.

Yeah, that's the way it works with this traitorous crew.

Canada to announce arrests in major terrorism plot: U.S. source
Reuters – 4 mins 25 secs ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Canadian authorities are to announce arrests on Monday related to a "major terrorist" plot, a U.S. law enforcement source said.

The target of the plot was unclear but it is unrelated to last week's Boston bombings, the source said.

Earlier, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation said Canadian police and intelligence agencies were to announce multiple arrests after an operation to thwart the attack. The operation was coordinated with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI, CBC said.

Alleged terror plot thwarted by arrests in Ontario, Quebec
RCMP to outline joint operation involving CSIS, U.S. authorities and local police

Canadian police and intelligence agencies will announce later today they have thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack, arresting two suspects in Montreal and Toronto, CBC News has learned.

Highly placed sources tell CBC News the alleged plotters have been under surveillance for more than a year in Quebec and southern Ontario.

The two men are expected to appear in court tomorrow.
Police have made a number of arrests in southern Ontario and Quebec following a joint operation between Canadian and U.S. authorities.Police have made a number of arrests in southern Ontario and Quebec following a joint operation between Canadian and U.S. authorities.(CBC)

The investigation was part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Sources say the alleged plot disrupted by Monday's arrests was potentially more dangerous than the bombings and hostage-takings planned by the so-called Toronto 18.

That plot was broken up in the summer of 2006, when police arrested 18 people in a massive anti-terrorism sweep in southern Ontario.

Eleven of the 18 were subsequently convicted of aiding the group in various plots, ranging from blowing up the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill and the Toronto Stock Exchange with trucks laden with explosives to beheading the prime minister and other politicians.

I don't know what you are referring to on the Newtown parent.

I do know that human beings were blown up and the POTUS shouldn't pick and choose which ones he should care about based on their nationality, politics or their religion. You sleep through mass, don't you?

You think FDR comforted German POWs in the camps?

And wake up, LIV:

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Monday hosted Newtown parent Mark Mattioli, whose son was tragically gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary, to discuss the ongoing gun control debate. The interview became so overwhelmingly emotional at one point that Mattioli broke down in tears while Kelly struggled to keep it together.

The grieving father explained that he is “broken” and “devastated” by his son’s death. However, gun control is not the solution, he said.

“I feel it’s a false premise. Gun control works for people who abide by the laws,” he added.“Criminals who conduct most of the gun crime don’t care about the law.”

Mattioli called for “accountability” and enforcement of existing gun laws.“You don’t need a new law, you need to enforce the ones you have.”
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/04/08/sa...

But not all parents of Sandy Hook victims are with the president on gun control. Last week, at a National Rifle Association event unveiling a task force proposal on school safety recommendations – including training school personnel to carry weapons at school – a victim’s father praised the NRA effort.

"I wanted to take a minute and applaud ... the NRA for coming up and spending the time and resources on putting a program like this together," said Mark Mattioli, whose 6-year-old son, James, was killed in the December shooting. "We send our children off to school. There are certain expectations and obviously in Sandy Hook, those expectations were not met."

You are really getting ridiculous. First, comparing a victim of a crime that may share the same religion as the perpetrator of the crime to soldier of a country we are at war with is utterly ludicrous. Second, in neither of those links does it say anything about President Obama "shunning" Mark Mattioli. Weak.

A "victim" who was on a terrorist watch list. You conveniently omit that part.

Then...
