I'm thinking it's more along the lines of "So he doesn't get his ass beat" reasons.
 
2013-04-18 08:31:45 AM
Yeah, to keep him secure from our nation.
 
2013-04-18 08:33:42 AM
Great, more fodder for conspiracy theorists.

FTFA: the Investigative Project on Terrorism's Steve Emerson...based his information on a number of his confidential sources. "I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday," Emerson said.

I wouldn't trust anything Steve Emerson says without open sources to back him up. He's a major self-styled "terrorism expert" with lots of foundation money to back him up and no real training or expertise. His organization was profiled in "Fear, Inc."

By the way, I happened to have our local right wing nut on the radio this morning (Quinn and Rose, they are in syndication now), and he was going on about how this is just like Oklahoma City, where they had an Arab connection that they went out of their way to downplay.  This is most definitely going to be part of most ensuing conspiracy theories.  Take it to the bank.
 
2013-04-18 08:53:55 AM
So Hannity is just a conspiracy theorist at this point?
 
2013-04-18 08:54:53 AM
Also, notice that at least "Yahoo News" has given its readers the courtesy of identifying the article's author as working with "The Blaze."

Some jackwagon with unconfirmed "sources" on Hannity?

Sounds legit.
 
2013-04-18 08:57:10 AM
His crimes are "being swarthy in a non-swarthy zone", "loitering in an ethnic fashion", and "jaywalking like an Egyptian".

F*cking Bill Cunningham will probably be crowing about this on his radio show today. I swear these two dudes are gay lovers

so this means the marathon suspect is indeed a tea party/right wing wacko and some powerful republicans have made sure this guy gets deported to create a conspiracy to cover up the conspiracy!!!!

Weren't Rush and Beck former DJ's as well? Seems to be a popular pre-right wing talk show host career.

Why are people playing up the Saudi angle? We are not going to go to war with Saudi Arabia.
 
2013-04-18 09:02:06 AM
Maybe we have to deport him because he's really good looking
 
2013-04-18 09:02:57 AM
Probably because oil

Summoner101: Why are people playing up the Saudi angle? We are not going to go to war with Saudi Arabia.


What, 17 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. It's not as if it's inconceivable that a Saudi national would be behind a terrorist attack. Just doesn't appear that this one was, seems he was more a victim of being brown in the wrong place at the wrong time.

nekom: What, 17 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. It's not as if it's inconceivable that a Saudi national would be behind a terrorist attack


I think the point is, after the bombings, their ambassador could have confessed to the crime, planted a Saudi flag at the scene, and pumped his chest for ten minutes and we still wouldn't attack them. Too much money and too many powerful friends.
 
2013-04-18 09:07:24 AM
Good! That means we have room for one more illegal Mexican.
 
2013-04-18 09:07:41 AM
Wild theory time,  he was actually wanted by the Saudi's for some reason, they asked for him to be deported, the State department said "sure he is not a citizen we can skip the due process for you guys."

True, but we most definitely WOULD prosecute him if he had anything to do with it. We're not going to be going to war with ANYONE over this.

The inconceivable part is ever going to war with Saudi Arabia.

the NYPost is already on to two other dark-skinned young males, the blue tracksuit guy and his friend in the white hat, who are persons of interest, but not the actual bombers.

He should seek asylum on those grounds -- he's a persecuted minority in his homeland!

these two guys are locals. They are running enthusiasts, not terrorists. One of them coaches little kids. Truly they are monstors. This is the problem with crowd sourcing this shiat. Instead of working together to look for clues, people just do a where's waldo with the brown guys in the picture and then go on a witch hunt. Reddit and 4chan should be ashamed of themselves - they just created two more victims.

Yes, most of the hijackers were Saudis. We then went to war with Afghanistan and Iraq.

I'll trust this when someone worthy of trust says it.
 
2013-04-18 09:20:07 AM
So the guy who was arrested, then not arrested, then a suspect, then not a suspect, then a person of interest, then a victim is being deported?  When do we get the "not being deported" update?

pretty much:

Poor dude.
Sorry for doubting you and your white hatted buddy.
[-]nicolaosq 7 points 8 hours ago
Are we sure that's his buddy?
[-]utahphil 10 points 8 hours ago
Im pretty sure it was is track coach. No sauce on this one as it was from FB.
You will have to trust me.
[-]ropiatesthrowaway 3 points 8 hours ago
I just looked at his FB and the FB groups where he has been posting.. Don't see anything about it being his track coach
[-]illmore0604[S] 19 points 8 hours ago
He's just a high school kid that loves track. Supposedly, he wasn't even with the white hat dude and doesn't know him
[-]x2501x 11 points 8 hours ago
Someone elsewhere said white hat guy is his running coach.
[-]Aregular89 6 points 8 hours ago
This guy posted on white hat dude's facebook and he was his running coach. No, I'm not posting the link.
[-]ReeG 10 points 8 hours ago
he's seen with white hat dude in a few photos, are you sure he doesn't know him at all?
Without giving too much away the blue tracksuit guy called him his coach on a comment.
[-]ropiatesthrowaway 1 point 8 hours ago
Hm must have not been on his fb, but another group hes been posting on or something that I havent seen
[-]ReeG 2 points 8 hours ago
are we sure the white hat guy with the back pack is the same white hat guy without one?
[-]nicolaosq 3 points 8 hours ago
No. We are not.

Is that even the same white hat guy in both those pictures?  He's wearing a different shirt.

Depends on which news agency you read. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if CNN confirmed that he was involved in the attempt on Pope John Paul II's life. American media is really showing the world how awful they really are these days.
 
2013-04-18 09:23:44 AM
He is guilty, but related to a prominent, oil-rich family.

Bet you a dollar.

Better yet, I'll bet you $9.11

Liberals are already in the find a way to attack conservatives about the bombings phase. Political exploitation aka not letting a crisis go to waste on deck. Quite a few already blaming sequester.

No, it means that the libby libs did it to make it look like the marathon suspect is indeed a tea party/right wing wacko and some powerful republicans etc.

FALSE FLAG! FALSE FLAG!
 
2013-04-18 09:30:00 AM
Every time I hear or read the words "national security reasons" I immediately substitute "the fact that we don't need a sound rationale to do whatever the fark we want."
