FBI investigating 'dozens' of similar cases

The FBI has discovered that several terrorists are living in the United States as refugees according to a new ABC News report.

The FBI discovered in 2009 that two al Qaeda terrorists were living
in Bowling Green, Ky., as Iraqi refugees. The men had attacked U.S.
troops in 2005 and their fingerprints were also found on IED’s in Iraq.
However, they were still able to claim refugee status and immigrate
into the United States. The FBI has been combing through 100,000 files
on Iraqi bomb makers ever since.

One agent said that there currently dozens of open investigations
looking into possible terrorists living in the United States as

ABC News reported:

An intelligence tip initially led the FBI to Waad Ramadan
Alwan, 32, in 2009. The Iraqi had claimed to be a refugee who faced
persecution back home — a story that shattered when the FBI found his
fingerprints on a cordless phone base that U.S. soldiers dug up in a
gravel pile south of Bayji, Iraq on Sept. 1, 2005. The phone base had
been wired to unexploded bombs buried in a nearby road.

An ABC News investigation of the flawed U.S. refugee screening
system, which was overhauled two years ago, showed that Alwan was
mistakenly allowed into the U.S. and resettled in the leafy southern
town of Bowling Green, Kentucky, a city of 60,000 which is home to
Western Kentucky University and near the Army’s Fort Knox and Fort
Campbell. Alwan and another Iraqi refugee, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 26,
were resettled in Bowling Green even though both had been detained
during the war by Iraqi authorities, according to federal
prosecutors. [...]

But the FBI discovered
that Alwan had been arrested in Kirkuk, Iraq, in 2006 and confessed on
video made of his interrogation then that he was an insurgent, according
to the U.S. military and FBI, which obtained the tape a year into their
Kentucky probe. In 2007, Alwan went through a border crossing to Syria
and his fingerprints were entered into a biometric database maintained
by U.S. military intelligence in Iraq, a Directorate of National
Intelligence official said. Another U.S. official insisted that
fingerprints of Iraqis were routinely collected and that Alwan’s
fingerprint file was not associated with the insurgency.

    We have had Islamic terr sleeper cells in the US since the late 1970s. They were tasked with breeding Islamic terrs who could travel with US passports.
    Major Nidal Hassan and his spiritual mentor Alawaki, are just two of them.

    Of course. Obama has opened the flood gate. It is sad to think we may have to go to war with them in our own country.
