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.
While in our society, each one of us is free to determine their own path in life, in tribal cultures like Saudi Arabia, the clan one is born into had a huge influence on their life choices. 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. We shall see…

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.’

Hey Xanthippa! Since this particular brown skin man – in fact, a victim of the horrific bombing – didn’t turn out to be the guy, maybe you and your right wing extremist friends can harrass this innocent brown guy for a while:
Why isn’t the Lame Stream Media covering this!!! Answer: they aren’t racist pieces of shit like you who assume every brown person in the vicinity, whether victim or not, is a terrorist!

See you leftist have no facts and feign outrage about how we impugn Mr. Ali Alharbi character. First I would like to point out that the New York post who ran that story is no agent of the right, when in fact no one would dispute that the NY post is a left leaning publication so maybe you should go tell your buddies to not jump to conclusions based on skin color, something that shouldn’t effect how we judge people. Those racist leftist at the post should know better than to, how did you put it? Oh yeah, assume every brown person in the vicinity, whether victim or not, is a terrorist! And I always take note when someone use such a unbiased credible source like Gawker a media outlet run by a man who trashes gun rights, irresponsibly names carry permit holders and distributes their addresses endangering their families. When he is on the other end of the stick and people publish his address and phone number (they didn’t threaten him just did the same thing he did to them) he calls the cops and hides behind what? Men with guns! You cowardly hypocrite! (Not you by the way Nick Denton owner of Gawker.com just wanted to be clear, since you seem to get things backwards easily you know clarity in discourse is essential.) Back on topic though I didn’t here anybody on the prejudiced right wing name these two in the NYPost at anytime. In fact it was quite the opposite Fox was very careful to not prematurely assign blame and in fact many on that network were saying it was could be domestic/homegrown in origin. This Saudi Arabian national though comes from a clan with money and close ties to Al Queda, and the presidnet wife goes and visits this man when a citizen missing both legs is next door at the hospital. ICE lied and said that the man of Saudi Decent that had a deportation order issued at almost the same time as the bombing took place was not the 20 yr. old Mr. Ali Alharbi that is in the hospital. The order is actually for him and even states as reason for deportation order as a link to Boston Marathon Bombing. And us right wing waited to have that verified by several internal whistle blowers before reporting that fact.
So I will finish in saying that after thoroughly trouncing your argument and providing facts not ignorant rhetoric I feel safe in saying that you sir picked a great screen name you just need to fine tune it so it reads – “Bigot eating Shit”.
