Boston Bombing

Glenn Beck's Lawyers Argue That His Attacks On Boston Marathon Bombing Victim Were Protected By First Amendment

Earlier this year, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi sued Glenn Beck for defamation over the fact that Beck had dedicated several days of radio and television programming to alleging that Alharbi, who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, was actually an al Qaeda "control agent" and "money man" who had financed the bombing and recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry it out.

None of that was true and so Alharbi sued Beck, seeking "punitive damages for defamation with malice." Now, Beck's lawyers have responded to the suit by arguing that it should be dismissed on the grounds that Alharbi was a "public figure" and that Beck's attacks on him were protected by the First Amendment:

Radio host Glenn Beck says in a recent legal filing that his on-air remarks inaccurately linking a Saudi Arabian student to the Boston Marathon bombings were protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution and that a federal judge should dismiss a libel case the student brought against Beck and his employers.

...

Beck's lawyers, in their recent filing in U.S. District Court for Boston, don't question Alharbi's innocence. But they argue that courts have set a high standard for libel in similar cases and that Alharbi's grievances fall short of that standard.

The talk show host's lawyers argue that to prevail in court against their client, Alharbi would have to prove "actual malice," including that Beck deliberately made false accusations against Alharbi.

Beck's lawyers also argue that the radio host's remarks were Constitutionally-protected criticism of the government's handling of national security. And they argue that Alharbi became a public figure in the days after the bombings, a designation that raises the bar for a libel claim.

Glenn Beck Sued for Defamation Over His '212 3B' Boston Marathon Bombing Conspiracy Theory

Following the bombing at the Boston Marathon last year, Glenn Beck went on a personal crusade to prove that the Obama administration was engaged in a massive cover-up of the role that an al Qaeda operative played in the attack and was doing so for the benefit of the Saudi Arabian government.

Beck infamously gave the US government three days to come clean about the cover-up before he exposed it on his network. When those three days passed, Beck launched into a full-scale campaign to prove that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, who was injured in the bombing, was actually an al Qaeda "control agent" and the "money man" who financed the operation and recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry it out.

Beck's theory rested on the fact that Alharbi had once been considered a "person of interest" during the investigation but was quickly cleared. Beck's network received information during the investigation that Alharbi "was set to be deported under section 212 3B" for "terrorist activities" and it was upon that piece of information that Beck built his entire campaign, as he spent days hammering away, challenging everyone to disprove his theory and warning that they would only discredit themselves if they tried to do so.

Eventually, Beck's crusade came to a grinding halt when he brought a former INS special agent onto his program to bolster his theory but, instead, watched as Bob Trent blew a hole right through it by pointing out that the 212 3B designation and Beck's entire timeline "doesn't make sense."

After that, Beck more or less abandoned the issue, though he continued to personally believe in his original conspiracy and mention it from time to time.

And now, nearly one year later, Beck and his company are being sued by Alharbi for defamation and slander:

Glenn Beck defamed on his radio show a Middle Eastern victim of last year's Boston Marathon bombing as a criminal participant in it, the man claims in Federal Court.

Abdulrahman Alharbi sued Beck, The Blaze Inc., Mercury Radio Arts and Premiere Radio Networks for defamation and slander.

Alharbi describes himself in the 6-page lawsuit as "a 20-year-old student who was a spectator at the Marathon and was injured in the bombing. Mr. Alharbi, like many others, was questioned by federal authorities investigating the events of that day. Those authorities also, with his permission, searched his apartment. The responsible officials quickly concluded that Mr. Alharbi, other then being injured in the attacks, had no involvement in the attacks. Many news outlets reported the facts of the search of an apartment and that authorities had questioned a man of Middle Eastern descent. When the authorities concluded that Mr. Alharbi had no involvement, reports ceased. The defendant Glenn Beck, with the active participation of the distributor defendants, repeatedly and falsely identified Mr. Alharbi as an active participant in the crimes that were committed on April 15, 2013, repeatedly questioned the motives of federal officials in failing to pursue or detain Mr. Alharbi and repeatedly and falsely accused Mr. Alharbi of being a criminal who had funded the attacks that took place at the Boston Marathon. Those statements were made widely and publicly. The statements were false and did grave injury to the plaintiff."

Beck, The Blaze and Mercury Radio all are based in Texas, defendant Premiere in California. Beck's show is owned by Blaze and its corporate parent Mercury, according to the complaint.

The complaint adds: "Beck falsely accused Alharbi of being a criminal who had funded the attacks that took place at the Boston Marathon.

"On or about May 8, 2013, and at repeated and diverse times thereafter, Beck stated that Alharbi was the 'money man' who had funded the attacks at the Boston Marathon.

The statements made by Beck were false."

Alharbi says he has "received numerous messages ... based on Beck's statements accusing him of being a murderer, child killer and terrorist."

He seeks punitive damages for defamation with malice.

Glenn Beck's Ever-Expanding Boston Bombing Conspiracy Theory

Glenn Beck spent a good deal of his radio program yesterday discussing the three women rescued from a home in Cleveland in which they had been held for years. Beck was particularly incensed by reports from neighbors claiming that they had called police several times to report seeing strange things happening at the house but that the police never investigated.

Authorities say there are no records of any such reports, but that doesn't really matter to Beck because it is all further proof that people should be unwilling to give any more power to the government because the police cannot keep us safe.

Somehow that reminded Beck of his on-going Boston Marathon bombing conspiracy theory, which prompted him to declare that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national whom Beck has accused of being an al Qadea "control agent" who recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the bombing, was "the money man" who financed the entire operation.

When asked by his co-host, Stu Burguiere, whether he was just speculating about this or actually reporting it, Beck simply repeated that "he's the money man" before adding that "there were twelve people involved and all of the cops know it" but every one is being kept quiet because of political pressure:

Krikorian Links Public Schools, Multiculturalism, to Boston Bombings

On a Tea Party Unity conference call last week in which he laid out his no-compromise strategy to “kill” immigration reform, Center for Immigration Studies executive director Mark Krikorian also delved into what he sees as a connection between multiculturalism, public schools and terrorism.

Noting that accused Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended Massachusetts public schools, Krikorian said, “The fact is, our system for patriotic assimilation, both of foreigners and American kids, has broken down.”

He blames this on things like a provision in the Gang of Eight immigration bill that would provide grants to help immigrants learn English and integrate into American life. This, Krikorian charges, will simply funnel money to “Alinskyite community organizing groups,” creating a “multiculturalism, anti-assimilation slush fund.”

“So the connection between this terrorism incident and the terrible aspects of this bill is very close and very specific,” he says.

The last point is assimilation. You know, how does a kid, the younger one who’s still alive of these terrorists, he went through most of his education in American public schools. Now, it’s Cambridge, Massachusetts, so that’s saying something right there. But the fact is, our system for patriotic assimilation, both of foreigners and American kids, has broken down. Foreigners need it more because they don’t get anything from their parents either. Because their parents don’t know, they just got here.

And what does this Schumer-Rubio bill do? We just published something on it yesterday, and then today John Fonte at the Corner, National Review Online, the Corner, has a piece as well. This bill would give millions, scores of millions of dollars, made available for the Homeland Security, for Janet Napolitano to give out to Alinskyite community organizing groups, supposedly to integrate immigrants. In fact, it’s a sort of multiculturalism, anti-assimilation slush fund that this bill, that Rubio’s bill, would set up and give something like $150 million to fund groups like La Raza and CASA de Maryland and other basically anti-assimilation groups like that. So the connection between this terrorism incident and the terrible aspects of this bill is very close and very specific.

This, by the way, is similar to an argument recently made by Heritage Foundation vice president Mike Gonzalez.

Krikorian’s colleague Steven Camarota recently attacked “professional ethnics” who “remind people of their backgrounds and ethnicity and their race.”

 

Beck: Conspiracy Theorists Work to 'Plant the Seeds of Doubt Whenever and Wherever They Can'

Despite the fact that we watch Glenn Beck's programming for hours every day, we generally have no idea what it is he is taking about, mostly because his stream-of-consciousness style tends to blend his own conspiracies and his regular denunciations of conspiracy theories into one incoherent mess.

Last night's program was a perfect example, as he dedicated one portion to raising "unanswered questions" about the judge brought in to read Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda Rights by raising suspicions about her travels to Muslim nations.  That was followed by a discussion of claims by Tsarnaev's mother that her sons were not responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing and are the victims of some sort of conspiracy to set them up.

Beck then went on to suggest that this is part of some sort of intentional disinformation campaign designed to confuse people and it is working because her claims ring true to those who do not trust America, which is a growing number of people since 9/11.  Beck said that since people know that they cannot get the truth from the government or the media, conspiracy theories can more easily take root.  

To prove his point, he said that in the aftermath of 9/11, nobody believed "the Truthers" because "we never would have believed that before" but now "all they have to do is plant the seeds of doubt whenever and wherever they can."

And this, Beck suggested, is exactly what Tsarnaev's mother is doing, leading him to declare that "I can't help but wonder, is somebody coaching her"?

Schlafly Wonders Why Immigration Officials Didn’t Check if Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Was Lying in his Citizenship Oath

Phyllis Schlafly has been on a tear after the Boston Marathon bombings, using the tragedy to call for the reinstatement of the House Un-American Activities Committee and a hold on comprehensive immigration reform.

In a syndicated column today, the Eagle Forum founder seizes on a report that some of the bombing suspects’ family members – all legal immigrants – received occasional welfare and food stamp assistance. “Tamerlan [Tsarnaev] can be said to have financed his radicalization with welfare handouts from our taxpayers,” she charges. She is also shocked that Tamerlan received a court-appointed attorney when he was charged with domestic violence in 2009.

Later in the column, Schlafly demands to know what immigration officials did when Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was taking his citizenship oath “to assure that Dzhokhar was not using the Koran-authorized practice of taqiyya, i.e., tell a lie in order to advance Muslim objectives.” Officials should have been tipped off, she says, by the first name of his older brother, which is common in Central Asia.

Once admitted into the United States, the entire family cashed in on generous U.S. welfare benefits, cash and food stamps. Those receiving taxpayer handouts included the two criminal sons, both of their parents and, ultimately, Tamerlan's wife and child.

Tamerlan can be said to have financed his radicalization with welfare handouts from our taxpayers. Those were the years when Tamerlan became a more devout Muslim, gave up drinking in order to devote himself to "God's business" and sought out jihadist websites.

When accused of domestic violence against a girlfriend in 2009, he had the benefit of a taxpayer-funded attorney to get his case dismissed. Welfare was terminated only in 2012 when his wife's salary pushed their income outside of eligibility limits.

When the younger brother, Dzhokhar, was naturalized as a citizen. He would have been required to swear that he renounces "all allegiance" to any previous country and that "I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion." What did our naturalization bureaucrats do to assure that Dzhokhar was not using the Koran-authorized practice of taqiyya, i.e., tell a lie in order to advance Muslim objectives?

Why didn't our FBI recognize the signal that the older boy was named for one of the most brutal murderers in all history? The name Tamerlan is known throughout Asia as a 14th-century Muslim who called himself the "Sword of Islam" and murdered 17 million people, beheaded many and displayed their heads to showcase his brutality.

'You Can Live In Your Little Dream World': Glenn Beck Sees Echoes of Nazism in the Hunt for Boston Bomber

On his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck spent several minutes discussing a photo reportedly taken during the hunt for suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev showing a police officer riding in a Humvee aiming his rifle up at the person taking the photo through a window.

And Beck finds the photograph particularly frightening because it reminds him of something he learned when visiting Auschwitz, which is that the Nazis would murder anyone who dared to so much as look out the window when they came to haul away Jewish families living in a neighborhood.

"So there were no eyewitnesses to anything because they had trained them," Beck explained.  "You make that mistake one time and the entire neighborhood and the town realize when they say stay in the house, they mean stay in your house.  When they say don't look out the window, don't approach a window, don't look at what's going on, you don't or they'll kill you."

And, Beck says, anyone who thinks that this will never happen here can just continue to "live in your little dream world" because "everything that has happened so far, we have told you would happen and everybody said it wouldn't happen":

Daubenmire: Hunt For Boston Marathon Bomber Was a Dry Run for Martial Law

It seems that "Coach" Dave Daubenmire will be making his way into our regular monitoring rotation because, frankly, if Peter LaBarbera thinks he is the sort of person that his audience ought to listen to, then he is also the sort of person to whom we ought to be paying attention.

And judging by the sorts of commentary videos Daubenmire posts on his YouTube page, we'll have a lot to write about, like this new one declaring that the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that essentially locked-down the city of Boston earlier this month was a test run by the government to see how citizens would respond when martial law is imposed.

"There was a day in America when we wouldn't have sat around inside of our houses, hiding from a nineteen year old kid," Daubermire declared, "but we would have grabbed our guns and gone to the street and found that young man ourselves."

"If you live in a city," he continued, "and you have any way that you possible can, find a place to move outside of the outer belt in your city":

Joyner: The Government's Failure to Stop the Boston Bombing Was Treason

Rick Joyner has traditionally been a rather low-key speaker, the sort who does not get particularly worked-up or animated about anything. But that was certainly not the case in this recent sermon he delivered in response to the Boston Marathon bombing where he declared that the federal government should have been able to prevent the attack but were hampered due to infiltration by Muslim Brotherhood operatives into high-ranking official positions.

The failure to stop the attack, Joyner said, means that the blood of the victims is on the hands of the Department of Homeland Security and was either the result of disgraceful incompetence or outright treason ... and "most people think it is treason now" because "there is a huge amount of evidence that this is being done to us intentionally":

2123B: Beck Inadvertently Throws a Wrench Into His Own Boston Bombing Conspiracy

For a week now, Glenn Beck has been on a mission to prove his theory that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, is really an al Qaeda "control agent" presumably responsible for recruiting the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the bombing, but who is now being protected by the US government following meetings between high-ranking government and Saudi officials.

The central piece of his argument is that on the day following the bombing, Alharbi was interviewed for nine hours by federal authorities while still in the hospital and that his apartment was searched and his roommates were interviewed.  After all of that, an "event file" was created on him "calling for his deportation using Section 212 3B."

Beck has been waiving around a photo of the first page of this event file and, given that this 2123B designation has been the crux of his conspiracy theory, he even went so far as to create a #2123B hashtag on Twitter for his followers to use to promote the story.

So it was odd to watch this interview on his program last night with a retired Immigration and Naturalization Service Special Agent named Bob Trent who was clearly unfamiliar with the conspiracy theory Beck has been promoting all week and, as a result, undercut much of Beck's 2123B narrative.

Beck has been insisting that Alharbi was designated 2123B after being interviewed and having his apartment searched, but Trent told Beck that that made no sense, as this designation is something that applies to foreign nationals before they ever come to this country and is designed to prevent them from entering:

Trent: The Immigration and Nationality Act Section 212 (a)(3)(B) deals with terrorism and its the inadmissibility charges.  So we're talking about something that should be tagged on somebody before they come to the United States.  It's a tag that says this person is inadmissible because they're connected with terrorism.

...

Beck: Last Tuesday, at 4:35, after searching his house for, I think, nine hours, interviewing his roommates for five hours, they call up and talk to these two watch commanders and say look, here's the evidence, we need to make him a 2123B.  How do you think that happened?

Trent: Well, it doesn't make sense.  It seems to me that 212 tag was placed on a file prior to this event in Boston where they were going to try to block him from entering into the United States and the No Fly is a subsystem of the watch list that is maintained by the National Counterterrorism Center.  So now that they know he's in the United States, the proper tag would have been a charge under deportation clauses, which would have been section 237 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Trent also told Beck that there is absolutely no way that any member of the First Family would ever be in the same room as someone designated under 2123B, which is another angle Beck has been exploring.

From the beginning, Beck's theory has rested on the claim that Alharbi received a 2123B terrorist designation after being questioned in connection to the Boston bombing, but Trent made it quite clear last night that this timeline "doesn't make sense" as 2123B is designed to prevent foreign nationals from entering the country, not something they are designated with after they are here and suspected of being engaged in terrorism.

According to Trent's explanation, the centerpiece of Beck's 2123B narrative is wrong because Beck has been mistaken about how this designation actually works.

Beck: 'If You Want to Continue to Discredit Me, You Will Only Discredit Yourself'

Glenn Beck continues his campaign to prove that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national injured at the Boston Marathon bombing and briefly considered a suspect, is an al Qaeda "control agent" responsible for recruiting the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the bombing and is now being protected by the US government.

Promising that today "the hammer drops," today on his radio program he read from the "event" file created on Alharbi following the bombing. Beck promised that all of this new information would be reported in The Blaze today, but it hasn't been published as of the time of this writing. 

Basically, Beck reported that the file created on Alharbi stated that he was on the no-fly list and had not been properly vetted prior to entering the country on a "special advisory option." It also declared him to be "armed and dangerous" and stated that an earlier "event" file on him had already been created, suggesting that he had been involved in previous terrorist activity. Beck also reported that after this file was created, changes were made to remove key information and then efforts were made to delete the file entirely.

And Beck is demanding answers. 

"Bring it on," he thundered, "Would you like some more, because if you want another helping, we'll give it to you." Beck went on to challenge other journalists to pick up the story and report on it, but warning them if they try to discredit him, they will only end up discrediting themselves and be putting Americans at risk in the process:

Update: Here is the video from today's radio program and here is the report from The Blaze:

  • At the time the event file was created for Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, it indicated he was “armed and dangerous”​
  • Alharbi was admitted into the country under a “special advisory option,” which is usually reserved for visiting politicians, VIPs, or journalists.  The event file cover page indicates he was granted his status without full vetting.
  • One of the first excuses given by law enforcement when confronted about Alharbi’s pending deportation was an expired visa.  But according to the event file, his visa is good until 11-NOV-2016.
  • The event file indicates he entered the U.S. on 08/28/12 in Boston, MA but says he is a student at the University of Findlay, in Findlay, Ohio.  He has an apartment in Boston, and doesn’t seem to have been a full-time student in Ohio.
  • When a file is created in the system the author(s) are notified via email when it is accessed, and given the email address of the person accessing, so there is a record within the government data system of who deleted them.  It was amended to remove the deportation reference, then someone later went in and tried to destroy both the original event file and an amended versions.  Copies had already been made.
  •  The original event file was reviewed and approved by two high level agents – Chief Watch Commander Maimbourg and Watch Commander Mayfield.

Beck: 'The Burden of Proof Is on the Federal Government' To Refute My Conspiracy Theory

Last night, as expected, Glenn Beck dedicated his television program to continuing to make his case that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a Saudi national injured in the Boston marathon bombing, was originally taken into custody as a suspect in the bombing and designated as a terrorist, only to have the designation removed as he was prepared for deportation after a meeting between high-ranking US and Saudi officials.

A few of Beck's claims were subsequently undermined by a report published late last night by his own reporters at The Blaze, but Beck is convinced that Alharbi is an al Qaeda operative who was responsible for recruiting the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the Boston bombing.

And Beck is undaunted, as he stated last night that "the burden of proof is on the federal government" to disprove his conspiracy theory "and so far they have not presented one shred of evidence that refutes what The Blaze has reported. Not one":

Beck Battles 'Principalities and Powers' to Reveal Boston Bombing Cover-Up

On his radio program yesterday, after he finished laying out his conspiracy theory about how the government is supposedly protecting an al Qaeda operative responsible for recruiting the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the Boston Marathon bombing, Glenn Beck explained how this was all being done for the benefit of Saudi Arabia.

But it turns out that it is not just global forces that Beck is up against in trying to expose this conspiracy, but "principalities and powers" which is Religious Right speak for satanic and demonic forces.

But Beck is not afraid because he has God on his side so Washington can "bring it on."

This is not a conspiracy theory. We have the documentation. You want to play ball with us, Washington? Come on, bring it on, play ball! We are not afraid. We know exactly who we are dealing with. We are dealing with, quite honestly, principalites and power beyond our imagination.  But we know who we have on our side. Bring it on.

Beck's Boston Conspiracy: Saudi National an al Qaeda Recruiter Linked to Tsarnaev Brothers' Bombing

On Friday, Glenn Beck vowed that, beginning today, he would reveal the government's cover-up of a Saudi Arabian connection to last week's Boston Marathon bombing.  True to his word, most of his radio program today has been dedicated to laying out his case, but rather than try to edit down and synthesize Beck's explanation of the conspiracy that is supposedly afoot, we'll let The Blaze do it:

Beck proceeded to highlight the background of the Saudi national first identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston bombings, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, noting that the the NTC issued an event file calling for his deportation using section 212, 3B which is proven terrorist activity.

“We are not sure who actually tagged him as a ’212 3B,’ but we know it is very difficult to charge someone with this — it has to be almost certain,” Beck explained.  “It is the equivalent in civil society of charging someone with premeditated murder and seeking the death penalty — it is not thrown around lightly.”

He continued, noting that after Secretary of State John Kerry met with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud on Tuesday, the FBI began backtracking on the Saudi national from suspect, to person of interest, to witness, to victim, to nobody.

Then, on Wednesday, President Obama had a “chance” encounter with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud and Saudi Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir.

“Wednesday at 5:35 p.m. the file is altered,” Beck said.  “This is unheard of, this is impossible in the timeline due to the severity of the charge….You don’t one day put a 212 3B charge against somebody with deportation, and then the next day take it off.  It would require too much to do it.”

“There are only two people that could revoke the deportation order — the director of the NTC could do it after speaking with each department, the FBI, the ATC, etc. — which is impossible to do in such a short period of time, — or, somebody at the very highest levels of the State Department could do it.  We don’t have any evidence to tell you which one did it,” Beck said.

Congressman Duncan is in possession of the original event file along with other members of the House Homeland Security Committee, and have sent a formal letter of request (which we have a copy of) to Napolitano for a classified briefing on the Saudi national and the deportation order. 

Beck proceeded to highlight more key points: it has been reported that the Saudi national was once flagged on a terror watch list and was granted a student visa without being properly vetted.

If, as an ICE official said last week, there is actually a ​second ​Saudi in custody, who is it? Beck asked.  “Why were there were no names, no pictures presented?  The fact is, an event was created for one Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi indicating he was to be deported for terrorism activity related to the Boston bombing. If this file was created with another Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi in mind, don’t you think we should know about it?”

According to Beck, the reason he called Al-Harbi "a very bad, bad, bad man" on Friday's program was to send a message to the government that The Blaze had evidence that he had been classified as "3B" and designated as a terrorist.

In short, Beck is convinced, despite reports to the contrary, that this Saudi national is an al Qaeda operative who successfully recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the Boston bombing and now the government is engaged in a massive disinformation campaign in an effort to cover it up:

Fischer's Simple Immigration Policy: Ban Anyone Who Believes in the Quran

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer renewed his call for a ban on immigration from majority Muslim nations, claiming that our immigration policy should simply consist of the question "do you believe that the Quran is the holy book of God"?

Anyone who answers "yes" is banned from entering the country:

Gohmert: Boston Lockdown Shows Foolishness of Gun Control

During his interview on The Blaze this afternoon on the Boston bombing, Rep. Louie Gohmert said we are living in one of those times that "the Bible talks about when right becomes wrong and wrong becomes right and people do not understand things that are spiritually discerned."

But, he added, what is needed now is simple common sense ... like not trying to pass gun control legislation:

What hit me this morning when I heard the residents there around Boston and in the area where they thought someone might be were ordered to stay in their homes, businesses were ordered closed, public transportation was ordered closed. Let me ask you, if you're sitting in your home and you know there are only two possibilities for people coming, one is law enforcement and the other is somebody who has already killed Americans and continues to do so, how many rounds do you want to be limited to in your magazine as you sit in your chair and wait?

Louie Gohmert Reveals the Real Lesson of the Boston Bombing

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) stopped by The Blaze today to weigh in on the Boston Marathon bombing and the on-going hunt for the suspect at-large. During the discussion, he stated that Osama bin Laden had set up terrorist training camps in Chechnya for the purpose of targeting America and so all Chechens who have come to this country need to be investigated and deported "if there is any violence in their background."

The lesson that this entire saga is sending to potential terrorists, Gohmert said, is that "this administration will not eliminate people who are here and have even shown violence in this country, that if you can just get into this country - and shoot, the President may even give you amnesty, just get here however you can and then you may be able to shut down an entire city also and then do what Osama bin Laden charged Chechnyans (sic) to do many years ago and that is train so you can go kill Americans and other westerners":

'I Don't Bluff, I Make Promises': Beck Gives Gov't Until Monday to Come Clean About Boston Bombing Cover-Up

Near the end of today's radio broadcast, Glenn Beck declared that the cover-up of the Saudi link to the Boston Marathon bombing makes this the second most important story (behind 9/11) that he has ever covered in his broadcasting career.  And depending on how the media and the government respond in the coming days, it just might be the most important thing he's ever covered because the response "will either save our country or we will be done."

Beck went on to send a semi-coded message to those in the upper level of the government, warning that they had better come clean about this Saudi national because The Blaze has information that reveals that he "is a very bad, bad, bad man" which will be revealed on Monday.

"I don't bluff," Beck stated, "I make promises. The truth matters. I've had enough of what you've done to our country. I thought I had heard and seen it all.  I thought I didn't trust my government.  Oh no, no, no.  There is no depth that these people will not stoop to.  They have until Monday and then The Blaze will expose it.":

Beck: Cover-Up of Saudi Link to Boston Bombing 'is so Far Beyond Benghazi' It Is Criminal

In the midst of the on-going hunt for one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, Glenn Beck is broadcasting his daily radio program and working desperately to find some connection between the Chechen suspects and the Muslim Brotherhood or Saudi Arabia because he is obsessed with promoting a report from The Blaze that the government had planned to deport a Saudi national “linked to the Boston bombing.”

The government is denying the reports and few others in the media are giving it much credence, which led Beck to declare that the cover-up of this information "is so far beyond Benghazi" that it is literally criminal:
