Confirmation that Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi, the Saudi national and initial “person of interest,” is indeed being deported this week now is spreading across the Internet. More details are emerging this weekend as Arabic sources and Saudi papers themselves are confirming “rumors” swirling in the US. (more at bottom)
Moreover, the Saudi papers are detailing the visit by the Obamas, especially Michelle to the hospital and this man. The “rumors” of the President meeting with Saudi officials in the hospital just prior to his “approved deportation” is a bragging right in their press.
More notable is the assertions that Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi is free an clear of terrorist ties, when in fact over 10 names from his clan are already linked to Al-Qaeda.
Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are entrenched in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda as identified by the Islamic governments.
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)
An alleged plot to attack U.S. federal law officers by suspected members of a fringe north Georgia militia group was inspired by an online anti-government novel, authorities said.The four listed in the indictment are Thomas; Dan Roberts, 67; Ray Adams, 65; and Samuel Crump, 68. The men live in the north Georgia towns of Cleveland and Toccoa.
Court documents state that 73-year-old Frederick Thomas, a suspected member of the group, told others that he intended to model their actions on the online novel “Absolved,” which involves small groups of citizens attacking U.S. officials.
According to a federal complaint. the four suspected members [my emphasis added to highlight what these nitwits actually MAY have done] …
were part of a group that tried to obtain an unregistered explosive device;
sought out the complex formula to produce ricin, a biological toxin that can be lethal in small doses,
had been talking about “covert” operations … discussing murder, theft and using toxic agents and assassinations to undermine the state and federal government;
At one meeting, investigators say, [Thomas] openly discussed creating a “bucket list” of government employees, politicians, corporate leaders and members of the media he felt needed to be “taken out.”
“I’ve been to war, and I’ve taken life before, and I can do it again,” he told an undercover investigator, according to the records.
[Thomas and Roberts are] accused of buying what they believed was a silencer and an unregistered explosive from an undercover informant in May and June.
Prosecutors say he discussed using the weapons in attacks against federal buildings,
[Crump also] discussed making 10 pounds of ricin and dispersing it in Atlanta and various cities across the nation, suggesting it can be blown out of a car speeding down an interstate highway;
[Adams] is accused of showing an informant the formula to make ricin and identifying the ways to obtain the ingredients;
[Thomas] is accused of driving to Atlanta with a confidential informant on May 24 and scoping out an IRS building there and an ATF building “to plan and assess for possible attacks,” the indictment states.
And now the punchline: ” U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said the case is a reminder that “we must also remain vigilant in protecting our country from citizens within our own borders who threaten our safety and security.”
Thus, these four elderly rubes – all stupid enough not to avoid being framed and to be able to maintain basic operational security in their ‘terrorist operation’ – are now trotted out as one more reason to strip civil liberties from United States citizens. I guess that the FBI was having trouble finding enough home grown Muslim terrorists to justify the police state.
