Was Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the much-discussed Saudi national once identified as a “person of interest”in the Boston Marathon bombings, at the White House for a 4th of July celebration for military heros and their families?
Apparent pictures posted on the Internet and a Saudi news outlet say yes.
A Twitter feed appears to show photos of the young man posing before the edifice – decorated with red, white, and blue banners to celebrate the holiday – in addition to close-up photos of the first couple.
They come from the Twitter account of an individual claiming to be Alharbi’s father, though that information has not been confirmed.
According to a professional translation of the account’s information, however, the given name is “‘Ali Al-Salimi Al-Harbi,” and the description reads: “Father of Abd Al-Rahman who was injured in the Boston bombings.”
UPDATE: A law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation into the Boston Marathon Bombing has confirmed to TheBlaze that the person in the photo is Alharbi.
