I mean, how the hell did this not make headline news in every newspaper and television newscast around the world? Wait, let me guess, because King George the second just maybe surpressed the information? Or was it because the Syrians were actually just recruits for a McDoanalds in Washington D.C.?




TUCSON - A federal grand jury Wednesday indicted two Syrian men on charges of impersonating U.S. citizens after Border Patrol agents stopped them in southern Arizona and found an undocumented Mexican immigrant in their car.

According to a criminal complaint, Ala Salem Mamoud Al-Kurdi and Mohamed Tamman Nakchgandi, both citizens of Syria, were pulled over by Border Patrol agents on Feb. 18 on Arizona 86, a highway that runs through the Tohono O'odham Nation, a vast reservation southwest of Tucson.

In the back seat of the Cadillac, driven by Kurdi, agents spotted a Mexican man who later admitted to crossing the U.S.-Mexican border illegally three days earlier, according to Border Patrol reports. Kurdi and Nakchgandi, the passenger, said they were naturalized U.S. citizens born in Syria, but agents found they were in the country illegally, according to court records.

How can America be so cruel? America isn't a soverign nation, it's a human right, and who are we to tell foriegn nationals they're not allowed to have this human right and blow it up at their own will. How selfish of us!

Maybe the nationals couldn't be bothered with just another illegal immigrant story?
The fact they were Syrian hardly makes it worthy of national coverage, unless their car was stuffed with explosives, radioactive substances, surface-to-Air missiles, an out of date yoghurt likely to be harbouring bacteria..... etc.........etc......

The Syrians are no doubt lucky that the vigilantes didn't find them first.

And for Britguy, it is likely that they would be provided with the weapons, etc. somewhere inside the U.S., not trying to sneak them over the border.

Because they are Syrians does not necssarily mean they are terrorists.
Maybe they just wanted to get the hell out of Syria, I wouldn't blame them.

There are plenty of illegals here, and plenty of them from the Mideast. Not all are terrorists. That some could be, I don't doubt. But if there were a lot we'd have seen more attacks here by now.

At least these guys were caught, but odds are that they were here looking for jobs, not to blow stuff up.

There should be a weary eye to all who are not here in the legal sense. I must say thought, that the Syrians being caught is a good thing in this day of post 911. Not to be picking on this one group, we should sweep up ALL who are here without the right paperwork. This menace is growing day by day, and constitutes a serious breach of each and every American's security. This should not be so with all the funds we have made available to the DHS and the other Fed. agencys. America was built on people from every point of the earth, and all are welcome in my eyes as long as it is done according to current U.S. law.

Because he does not want the American public to know possible terrorists are crossing our borders, thats why.
