It seems Islamic terrorists have been successful in exploiting lax US refugee application checks and have infiltrated America.
ABC news reports the possibility that dozens of Iraqi “refugees” who have expertise as bomb makers have settled in the US. The tip of the iceberg came from a case in Bowling Green Kentucky. According to ABC:
We must never forget the 9-11 Islamic terrorists exploited a lax student visa program and gained entry into America. The Boston bombing was the result of Islamic terrorism and the successful introduction of an improvised explosive device as a weapon of employment. America was fortunate that the VBIED (vehicle born improvised explosive device) at Times Square did not detonate, but don’t forget the admission of the apprehended terrorist in court who said he would plead guilty “100 times over” as a “Muslim soldier.” We can ill afford these gaps in oversight for exploitation — the biggest of all being our wide open southern border. “Immigration reform” has vast and grave security implications.
The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky — who later admitted in court that they’d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq — prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known as IEDs, for other suspected terrorists’ fingerprints.
“We are currently supporting dozens of current counter-terrorism investigations like that,” FBI Agent Gregory Carl, director of the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC).
“I wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that,” said House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul. “And these are trained terrorists in the art of bomb-making that are inside the United States; and quite frankly, from a homeland security perspective, that really concerns me.”
