Do you think this is why they at first announced they had made an arrest and was going to have a news conference, then turned around and recanted it?

UPDATE 4/18/13  11;50AM CST:

From Glenn Beck’s The Blaze: (probably to much publicity on the web caused this)

TheBlaze Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood reported on “The Glenn Beck Program” Thursday morning that TheBlaze has been informed that the government is now ​considering ​not deporting Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi.

“Just got a note from one of our investigative reporters that she has been told that there is now discussion that they may not allow this man to be deported,” Cheatwood said.

UPDATE I:

Sources tell TheBlaze that the Saudi national is set to be deported on “security and related grounds.” His visa also has been revoked. Below is some of the information that has been communicated to us:

1. One source at the FBI and another at the Saudi Embassy referred to the student as connected to an important Saudi family.
2. An “event” was created on this guy three days ago. An event is a file. The file contains his deportation record and the reason he is being deported. According to ICE the reason is under section 212 3B — “Security and related grounds” — “Terrorist activities”
3. His visa has been revoked.
4. The FBI said a file was started “just in case he was found to be connected to the crime,” however, the file shows he was scheduled to be deported. This was not a precaution, it was in “orders.”
5. One source said they believe a “voluntary” departure has been signed — that means the Saudi Student could be out of the country as early as today.
6. The file was immediately classified. We believe the deportation order will be classified as well — requiring a FOIA to get it.
7. The story was going to be “he wanted to go home,” however he was actually being deported.
8. Our source said the FBI believes the Saudi student is tied to 2 to 3 more people.
9. Our source said this “looks like they were trying to make this a ‘lone wolf’ crime so, the Saudi government would be spared embarrassment and the U.S. would avoid explaining how a terror cell was active when we had AQ on the run.”

CENTER: Saudi ‘person of interest’ wearing sunglasses and a white schmatta on his head

Tonight on Hannity, Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, reported that his sources are telling him that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was a person of interest for less than 24 hours, is being deported to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. Why? According to Emerson, based on National Security grounds. Reuters…. This coincidental with closed meeting Obama had with Saudi Foreign Minister last night. Guest on Hannity vouching that this news has been confirmed through a contact in the State Department.

I’m also including a 55 minute long Michael Savage interview with Walid Shoebat. Which was recorded yesterday. Yet , this is exactly what Walid said would happen! “The Saudi Boston terrorist will be wisked back to Saudi Arabia”. BECAUSE, obama is a muslim and is in bed with the Saudis. Will  this Boston attack will be swept under the rug just like Benghazi?
