    One copy of an alleged legal document that nobody can prove it's validity nor it's authenticity. :)

    Me, I have the real deal.

    May Mr. Beck reap the harvest he has sown.

    I'd be very interested to see how this case turns out considering the discrepancies regarding Beck's sources and info.

    Right Wing Watch ? LOL It doesn't prove anything . We will see what happens . He is not the only person who thinks he was hiding something . Saudis are the biggest sponsors of terrorism. It will probabaly end up like this case
    http://www.infowars.com/911-truth-activist-sues-glenn-beck-and-fox-news-for-defamation/ Maybe the guy who made the Anti Muslim video will sue our government for being blamed for Benghazi ? See if that makes it to Right Wing Watch ?

    Its not just RWW, the story has already circulated to mainstream news.
    The fact is that his propaganda and lies has made an individual a target for harassment and possible threats. This serves as a demonstration as to the dangers that he and people like him represent to the public.

    I don't know how this will end up for Alharbi, but you are correct that he's not the only one who thinks he's hiding something.. and we know who we can thank for that

    I suppose that I could have picked a non partisan affiliated news source that would have basically said the same thing. But what difference does it make so long as the statements are true and backed by evidence?


    Anyway, I just looked into that article about the 9/11 truther suing Glenn Beck, and there doesn't seem to be any comparison between these situations. First off, Greg Hoover (the plaintiff) sued beck for making a disparaging comments about 9/11 truthers in general which is entirely different than going after someone by name. I tried to find updates as to what became of this case and I found nothing because the case was most likely thrown out of court.


    What makes this different is that not only did Glenn Beck name Al Harbi as being involved in the Boston Bombing; he harped on it for over a week and spent numerous hours of airtime doing so while his staff wrote several or more news articles vilifying this kid. And on top of that, he made claims that Al Harbi was deemed "armed and dangerous" by DHS and showed no evidence. His so called "event file" is highly questionable at best, and he lied to his audience about what an SAO really was. He basically orchestrated a publicity stunt from a tragic event at Al Harbi's expense which is despicable beyond belief. Glenn Beck probably has deep enough pockets to provide a good legal defense, but remember that one does not need a unanimous verdict by the jury to win civil cases, and that jury is unlikely to have an abundance of Glenn Beck sympathizers. This puts Beck in a bit of a sticky because anything he says at this point to re affirm his narrative regarding this story would only dig himself an even deeper hole. As much as I would like to see Beck publicly held accountable for his actions; I know that an out of court settlement is the most likely scenario as lawyers aren't known for being righteous crusaders. However a part of that agreement would most likely be an apology and the removal of articles implying Al Harbi's guilt...... Which doesn't amount to much because a detraction from beck would only be seen as evidence of another Sorosian conspiracy and removing articles doesn't do much considering how much news material gets copy/pasted everywhere else these days.

    And realistically speaking, an out of court settlement would be the best thing that Beck could hope for so as to sweep it under the rug.

    I guess Glenn Beck will be financing Al Harbi's citizenship along with a nice car to drive.

    " What Difference does it make " ? Sounds like a Hillary Quote :) Missing from this article was the Event File that Glenn Beck was referring to. Context matters here

    How is the event file relevant to the context? They brought up Bob Trent who pointed out the discrepancy on that event file, thus putting it's legitimacy in question to begin with. What is so special about those 4 lines of text that it needs to be shared? It's something that could be very easily faked. He claimed that there was a 2nd page of this file that described Al Harbi as armed and dangerous. What happened to that? Has anyone since independently verified the legitimacy of this document after nearly a year?

    Well maybe a jury trial will expose a lot ? I think it will go nowhere . There are still many questions that need to be answered . Still wonder why their friend of the BB was killed in Florida ?

    That we shall see. I don't think any reasonable jury would look to kindly upon the extensive amount of effort that Beck put into vilifying an innocent person. Beck's lawyers know this which is why they will look to settle out of court.

    Beck's tactics might work with his audience, but showing the jury several lines of text and calling it an event file while inaccurately interpreting it's contents won't go over very well in a courtroom. I'm sure the plaintiff's lawyer could get a counter terrorism expert to verify the validity of that document. It would be a shame to find out that it was a forgery.

    What if his Jurors are also Fans of him ? Plus it will be in Boston. Im not so sure Bostonians believe they know the whole story .

    What the hell? Why should there be a trial for him? You support continued slander and unsubstantiated suspicion of an injured bystander? Why wouldn't he have been in boston? Why would he stand in front of a bomb he knew about?

    I know this is a very old comment, but has it perhaps occurred to you that the lack of freedom and tolerance in Saudi Arabia is exactly the answer to your question:

    Or just the fact that Saudi Arabia is a country of some 30 million people, with a per capita purchasing power parity comparable to the US, in a city with a large number of internationally connected businesses, during a tourist event? Why WOULDN'T he be there? There's a reason why every time there's an epidemic or rebellion or war breaking out anywhere in the world, there's always Americans and Canadians and British and Chinese and Russian and other citizens that are evacuated by their local embassy, and it's not because they were involved.
