Post-9/11 Dragnet Turns Up Surprises: Foreign Terrorism Detainees Have Criminal Arrest Records In The US

Post by TerryTate on Tue Jul 08, 2008 5:28 am

In the six-and-a-half years that the U.S. government has been
fingerprinting insurgents, detainees and ordinary people in
Afghanistan, Iraq and the Horn of Africa, hundreds have turned out to
share an unexpected background, FBI and military officials said. They
have criminal arrest records in the United States.

There was the suspected militant fleeing Somalia who had been
arrested on a drug charge in New Jersey. And the man stopped at a
checkpoint in Tikrit who claimed to be a dirt farmer but had 11 felony
charges in the United States, including assault with a deadly weapon.

The records suggest that potential enemies abroad know a great deal
about the United States because many of them have lived here, officials
said. The matches also reflect the power of sharing data across
agencies and even countries, data that links an identity to a
distinguishing human characteristic such as a fingerprint.

“I found the number stunning,” said Frances Fragos Townsend, a
security consultant and former assistant to the president for homeland
security. “It suggested to me that this was going to give us far
greater insight into the relationships between individuals fighting
against U.S. forces in the theater and potential U.S. cells or support
networks here in the United States.”

Really? Are these guys really surprised? I mean really, these guys must not have visited a college campus in oh say the last 25 years.

Half of my classes were taught by Arab teachers assistants and they absolutely hated Americans. They weren't exactly hiding their feelings about infidels and that was in the 1980's.

I sometimes wonder about the competency of people in our government.

This must be why the whaco lefties think that the detainees be given rights here. Since they lived here long enough to be criminals in the past, they probably voted dem, and this is their political payback.

Just a thought
