Washington - The Saudi national named a person of interest in the Boston Marathon bombing is revealed to have visited the White House on numerous occasions.
In the aftermath of the double bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line, Abdulrahman Al Harbi was considered a person of interest. Al Harbi was described as wounded in the blast, as well he was said to have given suspicious answers as to why he was at the marathon, and how he had sustained his injuries. Leading police to name him as a person of interest in the case, that dubious distinction went away 24-hours later following a closed door meeting between President Obama and the Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, now it has been revealed that Abdulrahman Al Harbi was also a frequent visitor to the White House.
According to The Right Scoop since 2009 Al Harbi has visited the White House frequently.

On top of the apparent visits to the White House by Abdulrahman Al Harbi, a visit by First Lady Michelle Obama to Al Harbi in a Boston Hospital has also come to light. A photo collage has made its way onto the internet showing Michelle Obama in Al Harbi's hospital room. The photo has been disseminated by Walid Shoebet a contributor to World Net Daily.

The visit by First Lady Michelle Obama apparently occurred on April 18th, a mere two days after the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the United States Secret Service which would have organized the trip, placed Abdulrahman Al-Harbi on a terrorist watch list. According to the Global Dispatch questioning by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has revealed that DHS placed Al Harbi on a terrorist watch list after the Boston Marathon bombings, but quickly removed him.
“Before the Tsarnaev brothers became the focus of the investigation, authorities questioned a Saudi student who reportedly was on a terror watch list,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said. “I sent a letter to you this morning asking for answers to questions about the bombers and how they interacted with your agency, I trust you will promptly respond, with regard to the Saudi student, was he on a watch list, and if so, how did he obtain a student visa?” Grassley asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Secretary Napolitano firmly answered the Iowan Senator: “He was not on a watch list. What happened is — this student was, really when you back it out, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was never a subject. He was never even really a person of interest. Because he was being interviewed, he was at that point put on a watch list, and then when it was quickly determined he had nothing to do with the bombing, the watch listing status was removed.”
As of this past weekend Al Harbi was still scheduled to be deported yesterday.
Video of the exchange between Grassley and Napolitano is posted above.
