Khaled al-Masri is coming to America, to be greeted triumphantly by his ACLU lawyers
Cross Posted from Right Truth
This is a fine example of immigration, or border control, in the United States: Suspected al-Qaeda terrorist Khaled al-Masri has been issued a waiver from the US Department of Homeland Security and awarded a visa by the State Department to enter America. So says a statement from an anonymous source at Foggy Bottom. Khaled al-Masri is known in the CIA Rendition controversy . via Threats Watch
The original UPI article citing the State Department source notes that obtaining a visa does not automatically mean the holder is granted entry into the United States. Admission into America “is granted at the port of entry by inspectors working for the Department of Homeland Security.”That final layer of screening and scrutiny would be the same Department of Homeland Security which just issued the waiver, an action regarding a high-profile case that was surely taken with the scrutiny of the top echelons of DHS leadership. If the DHS has issued the waiver, it would be illogical for DHS screeners to then counter their own department’s directive. …
For perspective, John Rosenthal quotes the German Der Spiegel article that looks closely at al-Masri to illustrate the potential threat he poses and his suspected level of al-Qaeda involvement.
Masri is supposed already before September 11 to have whispered that one “is going to hear something soon” and in conversation said that one “must inflict as much pain on the Americans as they would inflict on people of the Islamic faith.”
Make no mistake, unless something changes in the state of affairs, Khaled al-Masri is coming to America, to be greeted triumphantly by his ACLU lawyers.
Rosenthal calls it “America’s Innovative New Terrorist ‘Waiver’ Program” and Thomas Lifson rightly asks at The American Thinker, “Who’s minding the store?”
