BREAKING: What a shock: Boston suspect is a Saudi natioal UPDATED

Well, I told you he wasn't Amish.

The New York Post is reporting that the suspect in the Boston Marathon terror attack is a Saudi national. Gee, do you think that he's Baptist?
Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.
Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.
It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.
The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston. 
In addition, Boston police have has surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to blast site, according to CBS News.
Three months ago, the Hussein Obama administration ended post-9/11 restrictions on Saudis entering the US.

Less than three weeks ago, 'our friends the Saudis' were added to the US trusted traveler list.

That didn't take long did it?

What could go wrong?

UPDATE 12:17 AM

I understand this story has now disappeared down the memory hole at the New York Post. So here's a screen cap of the headline.



UPDATE 12:41 AM

Some moron on ABC now saying that he suspects 'extremist groups' who are opposed to taxes. Hello? This reeks of al-Qaeda!

UPDATE 12:44 AM

Britain's Daily Mail is also now reporting that the suspect is a Saudi (Hat Tip: Sunlight). 

President Obama speaking at 6:10 Eastern.

UPDATE 1:05 AM

I was half expecting an evangelical Christian, seeing they're top on the army's list of terrorists.

"What a shock"--you took that report and ran with it even though it is seemingly untrue and even though people are innocent until proven guilty here. Nice work.

As an Irish Catholic Bostonian who has taken the trouble to read up on the middle east and understands that serious errors have been made all around that have led to the continued violence, on the part of the US as well, I have to say that with each of these passing events I become more and more willing t embrace the Israeli side of the story. So you want to come into our country and attack us here? OK, time for some of our non Jewish young men and women to get involved over there. All we do is cater to SA and they want to attack us. What say we go help ourselves to some oil and indiscriminately level the place think that might send a message to the rest of the upstarts over there? Hm? Because we could do it in an instant if we so felt the urge you animals, remember that. I have had many Jewish friends and never once heard them disparage free America, but every Muslim seems to have some little biased judgement tucked away even if they're here enjoying our freedoms, going to our universities, lavishly spending their oil money as they even if ever so slightly disdain our culture as flawed. Keep that smug condescending smile on your face Arab. Keep pushing our buttons and Israel will stretch from the Red Sea to central Asia, will you be satisfied then? Will you be smug and superior and stab us in the back when we turn away from you, jealous that we are so much smarter and stronger than you for our freedoms and diversity? someday this will occur and I actually don't welcome it. But just remember that for every 8yo killed one the street in Boston innocently watching a race, we will take 8,000 with a drone strike that risks us nothing more than electronics. We'll just mow you down and order a pizza, so how do you like that tough guys? BTEW, if our women looked like yours I'd want to hide them too... you'll regret it when you've really woken the sleeping tiger. Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom were conflicting conflicts. If we coime at you under the banner of real way you will never know what hit you. Before: ambivalent, you guys should work it out. Now, angry and resolute, keep pushing and you will be erased from the face of the planet.

Your an idiot. Get your facts straight, then report the news Jimmy Olsen.

What about the presumption of innocence, one of many legal concepts that makes Israel a truly modern and great democracy (unlike barbaric Saudi Arabia)? No arrests have been made and you are so eager to jump to a conclusion. This is even more bizarre considering that you are a lawyer by trade.

No matter who will or won't be charged with this terror attack...
I am really amazed by how deeply some people keep their heads buried inside their behind!
As if many others beside Muslims (many of whom Saudis) had committed horrible acts of terror in the US from 1990, except the Oklahoma City bombing.
From airport massacres like LAX, to the TWO attacks on the WTC in NY (1993 and 2001) committed by the SAME PEOPLE who murdered Rav Meir Kahane, זצוק"לת הי"ד.
They accuse Carl of prejudice, against all historical evidence, and keep on VIOLATING EVERYBODY'S RIGHTS - see the ridiculous BODY SEARCHES of 3 year old babies or 85 year old WASP grandmas from Texas - so as not to profile those who are the most likely people to be involved in acts of terrorism, highjacking, etc., that is Muslims, who have it as a religious duty to eliminate infidels!!
Lenin called these people "useful idiots". And US liberals today are among the most idiotic of idiots.
