Saudi Bombing Suspect: “If Today Really Was the Last Day, How Would You Spend It?” April 16, 2013 Front Page Magazine,
That cheerful message was reposted by Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi from the Boston Muslim Community on his Facebook page last year. FOX News is reporting that Alharbi (harb = war) is the “person of interest” being questioned. This is still preliminary information and may not pan out in the long run.
A source close to the investigation confirms to FoxNews.com the man whose apartment was searched is considered a person of interest in the case, and is the same person of interest Fox News confirmed earlier authorities are guarding at a local hospital.
The source confirmed to FoxNews.com that the person of interest is Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a 20-year-old Saudi. His Facebook page identifies him as a current or former student at the New England School of English. He is believed to have entered the country on a student visa.
The source stressed that Alharbi is a person of interest, not a suspect, and said he suffered serious injuries in the explosion.
Alharbi’s Facebook page hasn’t been updated in a while. He is a Saudi student and poses in the photo above holding a golden gun on Saudi Day. If he turns out to be one of the perpetrators, then the timing for Obama’s new open door policy to Saudi travelers will have been a particularly bad one.
