No, the image above is not of Saudi national Abdulrahman Ali Al-Harbi. That’s Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security who evaded the question about the deportation of Abdulrahman Ali Al-Harbi with the skill and vigor of a well-trained politician at the highest levels of national security when asked about him by Congress. She’s also one person who knows exactly what many people want to know about the man who was reported as a person of interest in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Here’s a picture from the hospital in Boston of Abdulrahman Ali Al-Harbi:
There is not shortage of rumors regarding Al-Harbi. Here are some of them as they relate to him, including influences at the highest levels of both governments that may or may not have anything to do with Al-Harbi:
- President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal. The meeting at the White House was unscheduled but was reported to pertain to Syria. It happened two days after the bombing and and a day before news of Al-Harbi’s possible deportation order broke.
- Reports of Al-Harbi’s deportation order grew and accusations of his connections to terrorist organizations surface.
- Several news organizations such as Breitbart and Hannity demand more information about the suspect/person of interest/deportee.
- Napolitano quickly calls the deportation report a “rumor”.
- In a strange twist, reports from Saudi site Okaz says that Michelle Obama visited Al-Harbi in the hospital.
- Breitbart reports that Al-Harbi’s deportation record had been altered.
- The House Committee on Homeland Security requested all information surrounding Al-Harbi. An image of the letter is below.
More information is supposed to be revealed by TheBlaze on Monday. We will include that and any other information we find on Al-Harbi on this post – updates coming daily until we know the truth. In the meantime, here’s Napolitano evading the question:
