WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House on Wednesday and discussed the conflict in Syria, a spokeswoman said. The meeting was not on Obama's public schedule. The spokeswoman, Caitlin Hayden, said the president joined a meeting between the Saudi official and Obama's national security adviser, Tom Donilon. "The president and Prince Saud al-Faisal reaffirmed the strong partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia and discussed developments in the region, including the conflict in Syria," Hayden said in a statement.

You sure it wasn’t to discuss the bombing suspect?
Now there, don’t go and be a conspiracy theorist!
The whole thing stinks like Benghazi.
Wwll, well....there’s probably one more occupant on that Saudi-bound plane after BO’s little surprise chat with the Saudi foreign minister.
Kerry had meet yesterday with the Saudi Ambass., likely to do with the Saudi student under suspicion then. I think they're preparing for when and how they'll be announcing they got the guy and stalling that arrest as long as possible.
And, just by coincidental coincidence.... Yesterday John Kerry had a closed door meeting with a Saudi.
Actually, there is much to discuss with our Royal Saudi masters.
Their proxy war with Iran being held in Syria has gotten politically dangerous for our US involvement of running guns via Lybia to the rebels because the Syrian rebels are now politically aligned not only with the Royal Saudi family, but with Al Qaeda. It is not politically good for our President to be supplying arms to to Al Qaeda.
Then again the Saudi’s do contribute a lot of money to politicians and own a number of companies. Plus all of their gold holdings and US Treasury bonds.
It is such a minor thing that their people kill American’s in the name of religion. I mean 9/11 and now Boston.
Do you think Obama and the Saudi Prince discussed the quiet rendition of the mythical “person of interest”?
Or...possibly they were working out the logistics of fly out some new wealthy and soon to be infamous Saudi family.
This is related to Benghazi. We were doing the Saudi’s bidding and running guns to the FSA and AQ . Hillary perjured herself when questioned about this by Rand Paul. I also noticed that Obama showed a lot more anger anger and passion today regarding gun control than he did when he spoke about: the Boston and Benghazi massacres, and the Ft. Hood shooting. “Bloodless” comes to mind. A stark contrast to GW Bush after 9-11.
Benghazi and Boston doesn’t bother Obama because he’s on the other team’s side.
Will those affected by the bombing in Boston wake up and realize Obama is not on their side? Doubtful...
Not nearly enough Americans entertain the possibility that the President of the United States is treasonous.
If one observes Obama’s conduct and studies his policy moves it’s hard not consider him a traitor, or outright infiltrator.
It happening right in front of America’s eyes and only a few choose to see.
They may have discussed all of the above - as cover.
Two bits says the real reason was because the Boston terrorists are Saudis.
There’s billions and billions of claims against that Saudi’s family over this. Get the number big enough, and maybe they’ll have to scale back on funding their madrassas.
Bingo to you all...
Seems our Saudi person of interest is going to be deported next Tuesday for reasons of “national security”.
Shipping out Saudi persons of interest back to SA.
Per Hannity guest.
So I wonder who the patsy is they will tag with this?
All there is to do now is give Medina the Boston treatment and tell ‘em Mecca’s next. They’ll never turn the perps over.
Do you have a link for this?
You don’t mean to tell me they are going to pack zero off to Saudi Arabia, surely?
Thanks for the link. The problem is that while I agree with much of what Steve Emerson says about the nature of Islam, I’d like to see corroboration in the media before I’m comfortable with his assertion about this Saudi.
No internet link yet.
It was told to me through an ICE source. It is solid and the reason for the unscheduled emergency meeting with Obama.
The Saudi is from a wealthy and influential family in southern KSA near the Yemen border.
I don’t know that the Saudi is linked to the bombing and may be getting deported due to materials found when they searched his apartment.
Something odd about that search. The roommate whose interview I posted, Mohammed Hassan Bada, claimed to be Saudi also, and a cousin to the Saudi. But the name Bada is a Zaidi Shiite name from Yemen and that family is a part of the Houthi rebellion.
“Unannounced meeting to tidy up loose ends?”
And now the Saudi National who was a person of interest in the Boston Marathon is being deported.
Thanks for the post.
BTW, the al Harbi family is very prominent in Yemen and several are on the AQ most wanted list.
its interesting to note that since Benghazi, the kenyan hasnt been jetsetting around much lately. maybe he knows there are enough SAMs out there to take out the entire AF1 shell game
Here is a story about those crazy Saudi religious nuts. And a link for Banghazi, showing 18 photos of the embassy compound during and after the attack. It is so wide open, it doesn’t look very defensible. Also, at least one highly suspicious guy there by burning car with gun in hand.
On the subject of treason, what’s this I have been reading here at FR about Grover Norquist and his Muslim connections, sympathies and Palestinian wife? Can his no taxes pledge have been part of a plot to destroy our military and democratic government?
Thanks for the ping, Gandalftb.
Needless to say, almost nothing surprises me anymore.
Yeah...I REALLY believe that...NOT.
bin Laden family?
