Well, one Islamic expert has raised some questions about his background (Renew America).
On my national radio show on Tuesday April 16th, former Muslim Brotherhood member, now author, speaker, and expert on Islam and the Middle East, Whalid Shoebat, called in revealing info he discovered in Arabic, his native language.Shoebat also appeared on The Savage Nation as well (YouTube below)
We all recall Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi detained as a "person of interest" at the scene of the Boston Marathon explosion. He was injured and hospitalized then questioned but not arrested. Today as the news cycle unfolded, he was described as "innocent" and most cooperative with authorities.
Whalid Shoebat found in Arabic a list of known Islamic terrorists, either wanted or currently being held on crimes of terrorism with the name Al-Harbi. They were all numbered and listed. He lists them all and reveals his sources in his article posted on www.shoebat.com.
#15 BadrSaud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
#73 Muhammad Atiqu 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
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 hanem Al-Harbi
Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awfi Al-Harbi
Whalid also found a photo in Arabic sources of Rahman Ali Alharbi in traditional Islamic dress on Facebook. Soon after he grabbed the photo, it was scrubbed. Arthur Hu of Asia Week contacted Whalid and noticed the resemblance of the traditional photo Whalid found and the photo he possessed, taken by an Asian American at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. It showed Rahman Ali Alharbi with two other Saudi men as Whalid described them. They all looked suspicious.
Whalid and I discussed just how absurd and unbelievable it was that Rahman Ali Alharbi was already described as innocent, yet he is linked with Al Qaeda and at least 11 Islamic Terrorist relatives listed above. We also wondered why his traditional photo on Facebook had been scrubbed and American media was so quick to minimize him as any danger.
Here's one photo that came from a website where several photos from the Boston Marathon have been posted, showing people with backpacks.
(Photo removed, as those pictured were not the bombing suspects)
Something doesn't smell right.
UPDATE: Steven Emerson was on Hannity this evening and says the "person of interest" is being deported on Tuesday, according to his sources.
Is this what the "not on Obama's schedule" meeting with the Saudis was about?
