Democratic Party’s decade-old relations with Al Qaeda financier

With proven record of Democratic Party’s decade-old relations with Al Qaeda funders, if the United States federal government is not capable of creating a vetting process to keep Al Qaeda and ISIS leaders out of America, how well do you think they are doing vetting refugees from Afghanistan? Writes John D. Guandolo

As America is faced with the total collapse of Afghanistan and the U.S. government’s malfeasance in responding to it, the question of Afghan refugees coming to America is a real security issue for state and local governments as well as citizens across the nation.

Two questions:

How can American citizens trust the government with properly vetting people from any nation when the U.S. government has a track record of abject failure specific to this task?

How do you vet people who cannot be positively identified by true name and date of birth?

The US Government’s Track Record in “Vetting”

Abdurrahman Alamoudi was an Al Qaeda financier who, in 2004, was sentenced to 21 years in federal prison. Yet, Alamoudi served as the Islamic advisor to President Clinton and as a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the U.S. State Department, worked with the Department of Education, and created the Muslim Chaplain Program for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Alamoudi was an immigrant from Eritrea and was given the green light by the State Department, the Secret Service and the FBI.

Perhaps the vetting process is broken.

Between 2003 and 2014 Gulmurod Khalimov participated in 5 U.S. State Department sponsored training programs, including weapons and tactics training. Why is this a problem? Khalimov was a senior ISIS commander upon whom the U.S. government put a $3 million bounty.

The State Department defended themselves by explaining, “All appropriate Leahy vetting was undertaken in advance of this training.”

Perhaps the vetting process is broken.

How Well Will the U.S. government Vet Refugees from Afghanistan?

Those who served honorably with U.S. troops and/or as a part of the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan who renounce sharia and adopt American principles for their lives should be given an opportunity to come to America.

Direct testimony is needed by those who served with the individual “refugees” because people from Afghanistan are rarely capable of passing a true background check. This is because there is often no way to confirm the individuals true name or simple identifiers like a date of birth.

For security reasons, the question of how the United States will vet people from certain countries must be answered before admitting anyone from those countries.

This is the reason that in 2016 Understanding the Threat recommended Mr. Trump suspend all immigration into the United States for 3-5 years until the U.S. could produce a viable vetting process for immigrants from many of the nations openly hostile to the U.S., limit the points of entry to one per coast, and standardize security, health, and skills screening.

State Level Vetting

If the federal government demonstrates – as it has – it is incapable of vetting people coming into America, refugees or otherwise, how will states vet them?

Russell Smith, the CEO of Refugee Services of Texas issued a press release on August 16, 2021 stating Texas is prepared to receive hundreds of refugees from Afghanistan.

The press release also states: “All Afghans who have applied for Special Immigrant Visas (SIV’s) will undergo security background checks and health screenings.”

How will Texas vet these people? UTT reached out to Mr. Smith, but as of the time of publishing this article we have not received any feedback.

If the United States federal government is not capable of creating a vetting process to keep Al Qaeda and ISIS leaders out of America, how well do you think they are doing vetting refugees from Afghanistan?
