ICEgate? High ranking intel officials linked to Palestinian money laundering
Jim Kouri Law Enforcement Examiner May 7, 2012
The story begins here:
"What at first appeared to be government officials involved in
embezzlement to the tune of more than a half-billion dollars now appears
to be also connected to a Palestinian money-laundering operation,
according to several Law Enforcement Examiner sources.
A top U.S. intelligence chief pleaded guilty last week as a result of
a far-reaching federal fraud investigation that nabbed a total of
five members of the Department of Homeland Security and may be connected
to funnel money to a Palestinian ring, according to a report obtained
by the National Association of Chiefs of Police and the Law Enforcement Examiner.
James M. Woosley, the acting director of intelligence for DHS's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
pleaded guilty to defrauding the government of more than $180,000 in a
scheme involving fraudulent travel vouchers, and time and attendance
claims, according to court documents."
It goes on to quote, "Four other suspects pleaded guilty to charges related to the Woosley case: Ahmed Adil Abdallat,
64, an ICE supervisory intelligence research specialist, pleaded guilty
in October 2011; William J. Korn, 53, an ICE intelligence research
specialist, pleaded guilty in December 2011; Stephen E. Henderson, 61, a
former contractor doing work for ICE, pleaded guilty in January 2012;
and Lateisha M. Rollerson, 38, an assistant to Woosley, pleaded guilty
in March 2012. Abdallat pleaded guilty in the Western District of Texas,
and the others pleaded guilty in the District of Columbia."
"Ahmed Adil Abdallat was
sentenced to a mere 12 months in prison for illegal use of a diplomatic
passport and submitting fake travel receipts to ICE."
There is much more to this

corruption that is tantamount in Washington these days. Be warned, Americans - many of this country's leaders ARE NOT WORKING FOR YOU!
