Although the MSM has dropped the story, several conservative news outlets continue to report news about the Saudi national who was briefly considered a "person of interest" and was later cleared after the Boston bombing, last week.
Here, at Breitbart, Elizabeth Sheld reported that the night before DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano had vehemently denied the existence of any deportation order, the Saudi, identified as Abdulrahman Ali Al-Harbi, had indeed had his records altered, rescinding his deportation order.
At a bare minimum, even if the Saudi national is only be guilty of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, the story raises eyebrows because of Napolitano’s blatant dishonesty in the matter. Why lie?
At Townhall, Todd Starnes is reporting that, according to his sources, Al-Harbi had been "flagged on a terror watch list and was granted a student visa without being properly vetted."
A source close to the investigation revealed that the Saudi national had been deemed inadmissible under the section of the Immigration and Nationality Act which declares ineligible for a visa – any alien who is engaged in or is likely to engage after entry – in terrorist activity.
At least two additional sources have confirmed to me that the Saudi national is set to be deported as early as this week, contrary to statements made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
