Was Saudi National Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi on a Terror Watchlist or Not?

Janet Napolitano, Dept. of Homeland Security

Members of Congress want some answers from Big Sis

From Walid Shoebat:

This is really quite an admission. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, while testifying in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday, actually conceded that Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi, the Saudi national who moved from ‘suspect’ to ‘person of interest’ to ‘witness’ to ‘victim’ all in less than 24 hours after the Boston bombings, was indeed placed on a terrorist watchlist. This is in stark contrast to what she told the Rep. Jeff Duncan at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing last week.

Providing further intrigue is that one day before Napolitano conceded Al-Harbi’s watchlist status, talk show host Glenn Beck explained how difficult it was for someone to both get a 212 3B designation – allegedly what Al-Harbi had received – and to have it removed; it would an extremely long time for all of that to happen, much longer than 24 hours.

Napolitano seems to either flatly contradict herself or openly admit that it is easy for someone to be put on a terrorist watchlist even though they don’t reach ‘person of interest’ status. That’s either a lie or a chilling statement of what this government is doing.

Also, take note of what Napolitano says about Al-Harbi never being a suspect. Does that not belie authorities searching his apartment for hours and hauling out bags of evidence?

From 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.

Reports say al Harbi was taken off the watch list at 5:35pm the night before Napolatano’s first hearing on this matter.

Now we have the photos of Michelle at the hospital with al Harbi while he was still on the watch list.
