Boston Saudi student being deported on “national security grounds”

Steve Emerson from the Investigative Project on Terrorism stated last night on Fox News that Saudi national and exchange student Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi “will be deported next week Tuesday on national security grounds”.

Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi is pictured above. He is the young man on the left with an arrow over his head. Note the young man on the right wearing an Anonymous mask. Sam Kharoba, President of the Florida based Counter Terrorist Operations Center notes, “Al-Harbi means the fighter or the warrior!”

Reuters reported President Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House on Wednesday. The meeting was not on the President’s public schedule.

Walid Shoebat reports:

After the bombings, a Saudi by the name of Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi was hospitalized and became a ‘suspect’, then a ‘person of interest’. His apartment was searched by federal and local authorities. No confirmation has been given so far to his involvement. The Media were quick to claim his innocence, of course.

Perhaps a quick look at the Arabic sources should raise the eyebrows of every American relative to the extent of the problem at hand. Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:

#15 Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#26 Khalid Salim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
#29 Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
#43 Abdullah Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
#60 Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi


Then you have Al-Harbi clan members in Gitmo:

Salim Salman Awadallah Al-Sai’di Al-Harbi
Majid Abdullah Hussein Al-Harbi
Muhammad Abdullah Saqr Al-Alawi Al-Harbi
Ghanem Abdul Rahman Ghanem Al-Harbi
Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awfi Al-Harbi


This story is developing and will updated as more information becomes available.
