Skip to comments.Saudi national no longer Ďperson of interestí in Boston bombings, no other suspects
Posted on 04/16/2013 8:05:42 PM PDT by plain talk
The Saudi national injured during the bomb attacks at the Boston Marathon Monday has been cleared and is no longer even a person of interest, intelligence officials told lawmakers Tuesday.
"This was a soft target. It was not a target that was able to be totally protected," he said. "This particular incident is going to cause the administration and Congress to evaluate our overall security programs around the country, particularly for major events. We can't leave it just to the communities that host these events to provide the security."

Does he get “trusted bomber” status from Big Sis?
Was he cleared after Kerry's and the Saudi's press coverage canceled, behind closed door meeting?
Exactly what I was thinking.
The Hussein administration will probably give him “security expert” status.
1. Shoebat has a totally different take on all this, with documents. I’d take his word over the liberal liars in Foreign Policy anyday.
2. The event is clearly to be used as leverage for a federal coup against the States.
Whoever did the bombing had access to the premier locations, technical expertise and an understanding of the marathon’s dynamics. These Marathons require many volunteers for setup and logistics. Many of the volunteers are college students, some with engineering backgrounds. During the set up a culprit volunteer carrying bulky materials might go unnoticed. The investigators ought to looking at volunteers who like to read Inspire magazine. They should at least interview the volunteers and see if anyone noticed something unusual.
Holder once again ordered to drop it.
The blame the sequester crowd gives us the only motivation so far.
Uh, how did his hands end up burnt?
strangely enough, these ‘soft targets’ weren’t being hit post 9-11 under GWBush
His interview on Savage was hair raising.
The DNC accident lot claimed responsibility by saying the sequester is the reason.
Fast and furious 2.0 holder ordered to stand down,again.
“We can’t leave it just to the communities that host these events to provide the security”
So now my town’s 4th of July parade becomes Federalized.
Who is Shoebat?
The order seems to have gone out to find “a typical white male”. I hope I’m wrong.
There is a massive cover up going on right now..this Saudi National supposedly had NOTHING to do with this, allowed the feds to go into his apartment to prove to them that he had nothing to do with this, and they come out with duffel bags and other property..now how come they had to take out so much stuff if the apartment was free of any bomb making supplies or other evidence related to this?
Its obvious that the media is already running the narrative(From the moment this happened) that this was a “right winger” this is how they will run it..and they will run it every single day if they have to, because they would rather cut off their own tongues then dare say a Muslim was behind this..even those the kind of bomb created is exactly like what is used in Afghanistan and Bombay
these statements about how communities can’t take care of themselves implying only the feds could do it make me think of armed guards searching us ala TSA at every community event.....I guess I won’t go then...
To the FBI, the state police, and the DO"J", unlike the mob
that chased him done and arrested him at the scene,
he is functionally just another royal Bulger/Saudi who must be freed.
Now move along, there is nothing to see here.
I agree with this.
From the new photos that show what appears to be a large bag (the device) sitting on the curb I have a hard time understanding how such a large bag could be just laying there unnoticed. I also find it difficult to understand how it being placed in such an obvious place would go unnoticed...Unless it was placed there by someone who would be deemed trustworthy or someone who is part of the scene and blends in well.
You would think a man dressed in black with his head covered placing a large package right by the road would not go unnoticed, but I have also observed how poor humans can be at situational awareness in crowded conditions where they are extremely distracted ( looking for loved ones finishing a race)
I really hope I’m wrong but I have a hunch it was placed there by someone who would appear to fit in... your volunteer hypothesis fits.
I posteded this comment on another thread a while ago. Boy were my instincts on point:
The reason that suddenly the Admin/FBI is saying the Saudi student they suspect is no longer a person of interest is to give Obama breathing room to claim that the Boston incident is a terrorist attack. As long as there is no definitive link to Muzzies, Obama can feel free to call the attack terrorism in the national and international press without repercussions from his Arab regimes friends, as there is no definitive suspect. The Saudi student has had to be temporarily declassified as a suspect in order for Obama to accomplish this end.
The Arabs dont want to hear in the public world media that they are responsible for terrorist attacks all over the globe, and particularly dont want to hear it from Obama, whom they own starting years ago when they supported him through college, and to the present day when they basically contributed greatly to getting him hired as Prez by illegally funnelling money from rich Arabs overseas via Obamas election website, where money was being laundered from illegal overseas sources left and right. They know this, he knows this, they own him. They could out him at any time. So he must kowtow to them, which isnt hard for Obama to do as psychologically he is one of them anyhow.
Obama was taking flack from some of the U.S. media for not coming out in his first speech on the incident and calling it what it obviously was, a terrorist attack. So he had to go public to rectify this faux pas for public consumption (although it really was an intentional act by Obama of omitting the word terrorism). So, Obama and his minions (including the FBI higher ups, who are stoolies for Obama) opened a small window of opportunity for him to speak again and use the word terrorism in his comments without alienating his Arab overlords, as long as the actual suspect would remain vague (by claiming the Saudi student allegedly is not involved).
Machiavellian, but I smell a rat, and suspect that this is exactly what is happening. Word games of the first order by the masters of the art, the Obama Admin.
Exactly. And also, what kind of domestic bomber would use a pressure cooker with serial numbers, and not file them down?
Walid Shoebat, a former terrorist turned Christian I believe.
Time to dig up Richard Jewell...
But the later image after the explosion shows the railing bent around the mail box in a way that is inconsistent with the explosive charge being in front of the railing where the bag is.
A Jihadist terrorist does not fit the Obama and media template already being laid, and creates too much of a liability of incompetence or worse for His Heinous.
A Jihadist terror attack does not fit the narrative - so it will be crafted into the Reichstag Obama and his MarxoFascists so desperately want - and to pin it on the Right Wing TEA Party groups.
Just watch he media already planting the salivating suggestions for their boy king to follow.
I’m sure all those liberal colleges and universities in the Boston area are crawling with Islamic students.
Did the US go after Saudi Arabia for 9/11 since 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis? Nope.
So I am not surprised at all to see this no matter how many terrorist organisation affiliations this guy has.
The Feds love Muzzies way more than the citizenry.
....and how many other victims had burnt hands.....enquiring minds seek to know...
In looking at the second image I don’t agree that the railing was wrapped around the mail box. What I see is part of the railing is knocked to the side ( which could occur with the blast) while the portion of the railing directly behind the bag was most likely blasted away ( ie airborne or somewhere in the debris behind the blast) regardless I don’t see that the railing is wrapped merely knocked into the side of the mailbox.
Maybe this guy who blew himself up last night was connected somehow:
I wouldn’t believe the federal government if they said the sun will rise tomorrow morning.
World class event, security cameras, news & private citizens’ cameras, hundreds of witnesses.
Even if the beltway gang would rather have its ‘druthers’, and wouldruther call the whole thing off, they aren’t going to succeed with a fast & furious “What does it matter/Let’s blame the right wing and all move on” whitewash like Benghasi.
I’m more concerned about the domestic politics, media spin, and negligence than I am about pinning this on foreign nationals. The accusatory hostility coming from some Democrats and the likes of Chris Matthews aimed at the Right is astonishing — terrorists bomb, maim, and kill, and these irresponsible idiots immediately rally for a witch-hunt against their fellow, Conservative Americans.
It sure didn’t take the administration long to clear the raghead, now did it.
One of the best in the world for inside terrorist knowledge.
Let us pause to appreciate Richard Jewell, who saved lives by noticing a bag in the Atlanta bombing and then was wrongly hounded as the #1 suspect.
Yep, it's not enough for the 'Rats to infringe on JUST the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th, 10th, 14th. They'll be using this for the 3rd as well.
"No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. "
Of course it's consensual. What are you a terrorist?
Ah yes, the consent of the collective owner. The "owner" that owns our kids, the "owner" that paves the way for business by building roads.
It's difficult to believe, given his wounds, that he is not involved.
“It’s difficult to believe, given his wounds, that he is not involved.”
Well, don’t you walk around town every day with severe burns on YOUR hands?
It’s usually from...... making popcorn.
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Lucy, you got some ‘splainin’ to do....
Look at the jacket on that guy in dark grey! Looks like he’s ready for the tundra, not a spring day.....
“It sure didnt take the administration long to clear the raghead, now did it.”
Nope, they raid the Saudi’s apartment, haul away bags of stuff.....
....then LESS THAN 24 HOURS LATER, declare the Saudi with severe burns on his hands CLEARED.
Now, what lab on earth can process an entire apartment worth of potential evidence, with conclusive results, then declare OVERNIGHT that he’s 100% not involved?
The only lab that can do that is a lab CONTROLLED by “B HUSSEIN OMOSLEM.”
I’d sure be looking at who those guys were....but how on earth could you find out who they were?
