The Right Has a Shiny New Boston Conspiracy Theory
Emerson from Whirled Nut Daily still hounding the innocent Saudi witness.
Alex Jones isn’t the only one coming up with crazy conspiracy theories about the Boston Marathon bombings. The Worldnutdaily and other right wingers have a new one: Obama is deporting that Saudi student for “national security reasons” as part of a coverup. Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips, who is nuttier than a jar of Jif, repeats this nonsense:
Immediately after the blast, reports surfaced that a Saudi national was in the hospital. Various reports said he was detained, not free to leave or in custody. Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi is the Saudi national. His apartment was searched. The first reports said it was done with a search warrant. Now reports are coming out that the search was a consent search. Reports then came out saying Alharbi was only a witness and not a suspect or person of interest.
Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism is now reporting that next Tuesday, Alharbi will be deported for “national security reasons.”
On Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry met with the Saudi Foreign Minister, Saud Al Faisal in a meeting that had been scheduled for some time but was abruptly closed to the media for “scheduling reasons.”
