Boston Marathon Bombing ‘Person of Interest’ to be Deported to Saudi Arabia
Looks as if a 'person of interest' in the Boston Marathon bombings will be deported back to Saudi Arabia. Reports are saying President Barack Obama is ordering the deportation after speaking with Saudi Arabia's official yesterday. (Wednesday April 17th).
Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, is the 'person of interest' in the bombings who was detained just shortly after the bombs went off. Ali Alharbri is a 20 years old and came to America with a student VISA. Saudi officials, ATF, and FBI questioned him in the hospital after he received a leg injury from Monday's bombings. Government officials have raided his home and were seen taken bags of evidence from his Boston apartment.
Steve Emerson, a terrorism expert, said on Fox 'Hannity' show,
“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.”
Reports are also coming in that President Obama and the Saudi Arabia's official may have approved of the deportation. I am not sure if this is true.
Hannity added that an interesting report by Reuters surfaced indicating that President Obama met with the Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Wednesday, which was not originally on his schedule.
I do not have enough information on the matter to make an intelligent opinion because this report could be false. Check out the video below.
