Sources: Clements murder investigation will look at Saudi prisoner connection

DENVER — Investigators looking into the shooting death of the director of the Colorado Department of Corrections will look at the possibility that Tom Clements’ murder may be tied to the recent decision not to grant a transfer of a Saudi man in a Colorado prison.

Homaidan Al-Turki was convicted in 2006 of unlawful sexual contact by use of force and other charges. Prosecutors said he sexually assaulted a housekeeper and kept her as a virtual slave for four years.

His conviction angered Saudi officials. The U.S. State Department sent Colorado Attorney General John Suthers to Saudi Arabia to meet with King Abdullah, Crown Prince Sultan and Al-Turki’s family.

The DemonCrap CO authorities wouldn't be moving this fast unless they had some really solid evidence, especially with Big Sis moving to give Saudi travelers special entry privileges. Also, note the obvious lack of lib accusations agaisnt the NRA, GOOA, and the Tea Party, accusations they'd love to be throwing.

I caught this story this morning but the media is being pretty tight lipped about it.

Well, call me stupid but when a Prison head is shot to death at his home front door, I assume one of the inmate's family or colleagues did him in.

Not much police protection, I see, and that makes me mull this over, too.

That's because (a) it's the real deal, and (b) public knowledge of the story interferes with at least one of the Obama administration's currently active "let's screw America" initiatives.

The Daily Mail UK has an excellent report that the US media won't touch.

The Seattle CBS station ran this story last night with no mention of the Saudi connection, although they had a backdrop behind the newsreader of an AR15 and a semiauto pistol. They hinted this man was murdered because he supported the recent Colorado gun grab law.

Their being so tight lipped is pretty good evidence that it’s a hot, accurate story. After all, in this, the day of the White Hut Mahdi, MGSUH (May God S**t Upon Him), we can’t offend seventh century subhuman savages who worship a pedophile and mass murderer.

It certainly makes me wonder why Homaidan al-Turki is so important to the Saudis.

The Saudis have a major stake in our media, so of course the Saudi connection won’t be mentioned.

The authorities scramble initially to get the underlying motive established in cases like this ... failing that the chances of nailing down a suspect diminish. Looks like the Saudi connection is a viable lead.

They will let it blow over and cave to the Saudis. Sheriff Sullivan got off after his meth sex ring of troubled teens also.

He was quoting this and similar articles linking the Saudi prisoner held in CO to Clemments murder.

“The Saudis own the White House.”

Along with the communists who’ve picked up whatever is left over. What else would you expect of an America and American hating communist Mudslime whose entire law school education was enabled and paid for by the Saudis.

Terrorist Sponsored Assassination?

The Saudi royal family can do no wrong, just ask them.

I am so glad that they allow us to buy their oil we discovered and protected with our blood. I am so glad they can finance the 9/11 terrorist raid on the US. I am so glad that they are still financing terrorist activities in the middle east against US & Israel.

It makes sense that they can now freely carry out assassinations of government officials in the US.

It also makes sense that Big Sis, is moving Saudi’s to most trusted traveler status so they can skip those pesky background checks when coming to the US.

The blood will soon run much more freely in the streets and the Saudi royal family will be behind much of it.

I looked to see if you posted any mention of “the story” and didn’t see any. That leads to the question, “What story?”

That the crime was committed by someone linked to al-Turki and the motive was the victim’s refusal to repatriate him to Saudi. That seems to be the main direction of the investigation at this point.

Without discounting the Saudi connection, my first thought when I heard was that it sounded kinda biker style. This seems more like a criminal hit than an international terrorist attack.

The reason I shy away from that theory is that this guy was just a (very) high level bureaucrat. Decisions about prisoners are generally made by others. One thing he was directly involved in, however, were some painful decision about prison closings, which can have a big effect on a small town's economy.

There's a story breaking now that the driver of a car matching the description of one seen outside the victim's house (black Cadillac, Colorado plates) was involved in a high speed chase and gun battle in Texas when police tried to pull him over. He's basically on life support now and the cops aren't releasing his identity yet.

Of course they are..remember, they have to keep on repeating the same talking point “Islam is the religion of peace..Islam is the religion of peace”

There was a murder of a pizza delivery man in Northwest Denver a few days ago. The body, however, was dumped in Golden, not far from the victim's home. This Texas shooting definitely seems tied to that crime.

But why the heck would that perp drive to Monument, find the head of Corrections in a remote subdivision and kill him?
