Al-Qaeda Leader Al-Nouri – Fake Refugee Filed for Disability, Became a Military Contractor

This morning, the mystery over how an Al-Qaeda leader entered the United States and when has been revealed. He came here in 2008 under the Refugee Crisis in Iraq Act, which raised the number of Iraqi refugees that could come to the United States. How many more terrorists are here?

Since the 13,823 Iraqis who came under that program were processed “in country” rather than the United States, they were not properly vetted. Now we can wonder how many of them were terrorists like Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri. Probably more than we realize, thanks to the sponsors and backers of that bill: Ted Kennedy, backed by Grover Norquist, and co-sponsored by Joe Biden, Pat Leahy, Chuck Hagel, Dick Durbin, Bob Menendez and Barack Obama.

They hailed it as a “less burdensome” way for Iraqi refugees to come to the US. Choke. Less burdensome. Brilliant way to let terrorists into the country.

“The United States has a clear responsibility to support these brave Iraqis who have stood by us.” Ted Kennedy

“Brave Iraqis” who stood against us was more like it. Al-Nouri was the “emir” of Al-Qaeda in Fallujah, Iraq. When he came to the US in 2008, he claimed to be a “refugee” from Al-Qaeda. Fallujah was one of the bloodiest battles fought in Iraq.

Not only did he end up in Arizona, he FILED FOR DISABILITY there because he told the Social Security Administration that he had 20 bullets in his body from Al-Qaeda terrorists and that’s why he couldn’t work. It’s a total scam.

How do YOU feel about a fake refugee being able to file for disability when there are real Americans that should be in line first? Especially considering his “bullets” were likely fired from US troops or Iraqi security forces, if that was even true.

The fake refugee aka Al-Qaeda leader did so well at his fakeness that he became a military contractor and was training US troops.

Daniel Greenfield of the David Horowitz Freedom Center wrote:

“Despite the Al Qaeda leader’s supposed disability, he was able to work as a military contractor in California and to open a driving school, the A-Plus Driving School, in Phoenix.

1,050 Iraqi refugees were resettled in Arizona in 2008. Iraqis were the number one refugee group resettled everywhere from Alabama to Virginia. But Arizona had the highest share of Iraqis in any state outside Michigan’s Islamic enclaves. Al-Nouri became one of 12,329 Iraqi refugees operating in Arizona.

When Al-Nouri came to this country, Arizona was accepting the most refugees per capita of any state. Money for resettling refugees poured into the state which was happy to take in Muslims from Yugoslavia, then Sudan, and Iraq. The Iraqi community in Phoenix boomed. Along with Al-Nouri…

…Iraqis in Phoenix have already come to Al-Nouri’s defense, describing him as a popular figure in the community. They claim that they had no idea that he could have been an Al Qaeda terrorist.

That’s unlikely.

In a culture with massive extended families and tribes whose members do everything, whether it’s fighting Al Qaeda or joining Al Qaeda as a group, coming out of a major Iraqi city, Al-Nouri’s story would not have fooled everyone in his community. But Al-Nouri was far from the only terrorist to come to America as a refugee. We don’t know how many terrorists who pretended to be fighting Al Qaeda tricked the system to come to America. And we don’t know how many more are coming now.”

Arizona has continually asked for more refugees, last September asking President Trump to allow more of them (Phoenix New Times). As recently as December 2019, AZ Gov Ducey has defiantly said that Arizona will “continue” to welcome refugees.

Even when they don’t know who they are getting.
