Big Sis: Question About Saudi National Being Deported 'Not Worthy Of An Answer' (Video)
Rumors are swirling that former "person of interest", Abdul al-Harb, the Saudi national who was cleared of wrong-doing in the Boston Marathon bomb attack, is being deported "on national security grounds."
Steven Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism dropped the bombshell on Hannity's Wednesday evening program, based on information an ICE official told him.

"Remember the Saudi that they had arrested or at least initially detained?" Emerson asked. "It was determined that he had no involvement and they made a statement about it to that effect? Well, I just learned from my own sources he’s now going to be deported on national security grounds Tuesday," Emerson said, later adding, "This is the way things are done with Saudi Arabia. You don’t arrest their citizens. You deport them, because they don’t want them to be embarrassed."
At a House hearing, Thursday morning, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano first threw cold water on the reports and then finally refused to dignify Republican Congressman Jeff Duncan's persistent questions with an answer.
“Wouldn’t you agree with me that it’s negligent for us as an American administration to deport someone who was reportedly at the scene of the bombing and we’re going to deport him, not to be able to question him anymore?” Duncan asked.
“I am not going to answer that question it is so full of misstatements and misapprehension that it’s just not worthy of an answer…there’s been so much reported on this that’s been wrong I can’t even begin to tell you, congressman,” Napolitano replied. “We will provide you with accurate information as it becomes available.”
