Political commentator Glenn Beck has spoken about the Saudi national who was once suspected to be the Boston Marathon bomber.

Saudi national Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi was detained in the immediate wake of the Boston bombings on April 15 but released soon after.

Beck told his audience on The Blaze that sources told him that the Saudi man was once marked as a likely violent extremist by U.S. officials.

He started the show by saying that the government and media is trying to discredit the claim that the Saudi student who is on a student visa in America was involved in the Boston attacks.

"We don't know at this point how he was involved ... but I do know he was involved," said Beck on The Blaze TV. He continued: "You can ask yourself this question, 'How many times does lightning have to strike in the first place for this guy to be at the scene of the crime and in the hospital and not be involved?"

"I think it would have been much better if CNN, ABC, and NBC would have broken this," Beck said. "And I also think it would have been much better if the federal government would have come out."

He blame the government of not coming out with the truth, saying: "Now, the government is out-and-out lying to you. They are engaging in a disinformation campaign to discredit and destroy."

He continued: "While the media continues to look at what the causes were of these two guys, there are, at this hour, three people involved in the bombings in Boston. The first one is the one we are going to address."

He said his sources and documents confirm that Alharbi was identified as a likely extremist and that it was clear from his "212 3B" status. This status is the NTC code for someone who has been proven to have been involved in terrorist acts.

"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 said. "It is the equivalent in civil society of charging someone with premeditated murder and seeking the death penalty - it is not thrown around lightly."

The host said that Sec. of State John Kerry met with Saudi officials on Tuesday and after that the FBI immediately backed off involving Alharbi with the attack. He went from being a suspect - witness - victim - to a nobody.

"Wednesday at 5:35 p.m. the file - the 212 3B - is altered," Beck said. "This is unheard of, this is impossible in the timeline due to the severity of the charge."

Last Wednesday, a Saudi official told Washington Post that the Saudi man "is fully cooperating with authorities." In that same report, U.S. law enforcement sources confirmed to the Post that the man went from being considered as a suspect to a witness.

Saudi embassy spokesman Nail Al-Jubeir told Boston Globe that he was no longer a suspect.
