Saudi national, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, was under police detention in a Boston hospital, first as a suspect and then as a ‘person of interest’. Then, after Obama held an unscheduled meeting with the Saudi Foreign Minister, we found out that Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi was only a few days away from being deported to Saudi Arabia because of national security concerns…because of his ties to terrorism.

And the Al-Harbi clan has close ties to Al-Qaida – and many of his clansmen are currently being held in Gitmo…He may indeed be quickly and quietly disappeared into Saudi Arabia, or, following protests over letting a suspected terrorist slip from US jrisdiction, he may remain.

Ask yourself: why do you have to read about this in a blog?
The mainstream media is, again, abdicating their responsibility to inform of the facts…
From a since deleted Fox report, saved by Debbie Schlussel:
‘A source close to the investigation confirms to FoxNews.com the man whose apartment was searched is considered a person of interest in the case, and is the same person of interest Fox News confirmed earlier authorities are guarding at a local hospital. The source confirmed to FoxNews.com that the person of interest is Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a 20-year-old Saudi. His Facebook page identifies him as a current or former student at the New England School of English. He is believed to have entered the country on a student visa.’
