Cable TV station CNN has uncovered a possible cover-up involving a man from Somalia who has been working a security job at Dulles airport in Washington D.C. for years.

The man, Yusuf Abdi Ali, is apparently a war criminal responsible for many deaths during the Somalian Civil War some years back.

And it seems the U.S. immigration authorities knew all about this !!!!!

Who and why was this fella being protected?

And it seems the CNN investigation has the man on "administrative leave".

SOMALI MUSLIM WAR CRIMINAL is working security at Dulles Internationl Airport in Washington DC


CNN investigation found that Yusuf Abdi Ali, who is accused of committing atrocities while he was a military commander during Somalia’s brutal civil war, has been living a quiet life near the nation’s capital for about 20 years.

He is just one of more than 1,000 accused war criminals living and working in the United States. Yusuf Abdi Ali served as a commander in the Barre regime and is accused of terrorizing the Isaaq people, torturing clan members, burning villages and conducting mass executions.
Several villagers described these atrocities in a documentary that aired on the Canadian network CBC in 1992. One witness claimed Ali captured and killed a family member. “He tied (my brother) to military vehicle and dragged him behind. He said to us if you’ve got enough power, get him back,” the villager said. “He shredded him into pieces. That’s how he died.”


Hmmmm

Maybe CIA ?

Maybe. Frankly, I'm not surprised by this info, not even a little bit surprised. The US. Has a long history of welcoming war criminals with open arms. It's ironic that you mention the alphabet folks in Langley VA as that very organization was birthed from a group of war criminals.. . . . The Nazis. The birth of the " the Langley Gang" was nothing more than the "Intelligence" side of the agreement known as project paper clip. The Nazi intelligence apparatus was viewed as to powerful an operation/weapon to pass up (especially against those da$%& Commies) so uncle Sam pardoned LOTS of Nazi War criminals and even gave some of them swank housing and positions of power. So an African war criminal living in the states is . . . Meh, in the grand scheme of awful decisions Unkey Sam has made, assuming "they" knew about it.

Just like our government knew plans were being formed to fly planes into the Trade Towers. They let it happen. Maybe the same thing is going on here? Maybe our government was using this guy in hopes he would enable terrorists to hijack a plane or smuggle in a bomb. Another black flag attack would rally public support to invade another country and push their secret agendas.

You don't employ a person with a Middle Eastern name to work in security, it's a no brainer! Considering the current state of affairs with Middle Eastern terrorism, call it profiling or what ever you like, but why in the hell would they take the chance and place him in or anywhere near security? It sure seems like he must have by-passed any background checks with inside help. Anyone saying this was an accident, probably believes everything our government spews out.

Our vetting process for immigrants coming into the U.S. is really working, not!

Do you think this man had something to do with 9/11 ?

Interesting possibility.

Who knows, but how convenient to have a known war criminal to be employed in the security area of the D.C. airport. Any plan to have a terrorist board a plane would surely have an inside contact.

the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security’s policy PROHIBITING checking social media accounts as part of vetting for foreigners applying for U.S. visas.



t none of the background checks that Tashfeen Malik, one of the perpetrators of the San Bernardino terrorist attack uncovered posts she made on social media declaring her support for ISIS or other forms of violent jihad. Had any of those posts been discovered during the multiple background checks run against her when she applied to move to the U.S. on a fiancée visa, she would have likely been denied entry. The New York Times reported that it wasn’t until after the December 2nd attack on the Inland Regional Center, which left 14 people dead and another 21 people injured, that law enforcement officials discovered the old (and previously



Yeah...it's working just fine.

Considering he didn't commit any terrorist acts while he was here, it seems to have worked fine.

Living / working in the US for 20 years?

That put's it around 1996, or rather... smack dab in the middle of the Clinton era.

Go figure.

Democrats got us into Vietnam, so why not what's next?

So you support precrime then? Holding people guilty over things they might do in the future?

No, I support common sense and not burying my head in the sand pretending that everyone is nice....until its too late. We have vetting for a reason and it is not because of supporting pre-crime. If our vetting had been better the people who died or were maimed in that bombing would be alive and well today.

Your question is invalid. Guilty is a determination made after the fact. All crimes are pre-crime before they happen. It sounds like you are suggesting that we should ignore everything until after the attack happens. We wouldn't want to pre-judge a potential terrorist now would we? Let everybody in, they aren't criminals until after they kill someone right? And I suppose you leave your doors and windows open because the people waking in to your house in the middle of the night aren't criminals....yet. Or are you a hypocrite, protecting yourself but expecting the rest of us to put ourselves at risk to satisfy your pc needs?
