Feds can't find Somalis they say Va. man smuggled into U.S.

Federal authorities say they're certain nearly 300 Somalis allegedly smuggled into the United States by a Virginia man who admitted contacts with an Islamic terrorist group are in the country, but they can't find them despite a worldwide search for leads.

The search, first reported by the Washington Examiner, started in early February after Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Anthony Joseph Tracy on charges that he helped smuggle the Somalis into the United States from Kenya. The 35-year-old has since been indicted on charges of conspiring with Cuban Embassy officials in Kenya to help the Somalis illegally enter the United States. ICE Agent Thomas Eyre has testified that authorities are "concerned" about the contact Tracy admitted having with the Somali terrorist organization Al-Shabaab, an al Qaeda ally.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema questioned Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeanine Linehan about the status of the government's search for the illegal immigrants.

"We have not identified anyone," Linehan said. "We believe all the individuals are present in the United States. But by the virtue of [Tracy's] successful smuggling scheme, we are having difficulty finding them."

Another “300”? How about making a movie “300, Part Deux”.

Or, from “Red October”. What? “You’ve lost another 300 people”?

Yep, Janet Napolitano is sure doing a great job as head of Homeland Security. Unfortunately, it is Somalia jihadists homeland security.

This woman is a complete waste of carbon credits.

"The Somalis are believed to have entered the United States through the border with Mexico"

OMG, what a surprise! Seriously? who could have seen something like that coming?

"after making a circuitous trip from Kenya to Dubai to Moscow to Cuba to South America then to Mexico"

nothing suspicious about that folks. Move along.

I often wonder when these terror cells are going to be given the 'go-code' to begin their attacks in order to put us under martial law. Which election.....?

Virginia seems to have more than its fair share of Islamic wingnuts. Pretty close to DC, too. Didn’t the FT Hood wacko major live in Virginia?

Remember, if they can’t find these illegal alien Somali’s they’ll never vet the 20 million they plan on giving amnesty to.

A Note from Mike Cutler about this article:

We are now approaching the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 yet our border have remained porous and the immigration system is as secure as a sieve! The failures of the government to secure our nation’s borders and create an immigration system that has real integrity has never been addressed by either political party.

A short while ago, earlier this evening, I sent out a commentary about the violence of the Mexican Drug Cartels spilling over into the United States and discussed the murder of American officials, purportedly at the hands and at the behest of the Drug Cartels.

I no sooner sent out the commentary when I noticed I received the news report I have attached below. It was forwarded to me by a former colleague at the INS who shares my concerns and, I suspect, my inability to sleep at night!

Consider the first sentence from that news article:

> “Federal authorities say they’re certain nearly 300 Somalis allegedly smuggled into the United States by a Virginia man who admitted contacts with an Islamic terrorist group are in the country, but they can’t find them despite a worldwide search for leads.”

That should certainly grab your attention! I am not claiming that all of the 300 Somali nationals who were smuggled into the United States are engaged in terrorism. Maybe none of them have any ties to terrorist organizations. Then again, the possibility exists that they are all involved with terrorism. The point is that our government does not know. Where terrorism and crime is concerned, ignorance, as the saying goes, is not bliss! When dealing with criminals and especially terrorists- ignorance can kill and can kill many!

On September 11, 2001 nineteen terrorists killed three thousand innocent victims, injured many thousands more- many of whom have been made ill by the toxins they were exposed to in the immediate aftermath of the attacks- a number of whom have died, painfully.

Now it would appear that an estimated 300 citizens of a country that has been clearly identified as being linked to terrorism have entered our country and are “out there” inside our country for purposes only known to them.

Ever since the attacks of September 11, 2001 we have heard a succession of our “leaders” beginning with President George W. Bush and members of his administration as well as other politicians and presidential candidates repeat what has become a virtual mantra about the “War on Terror”

“We are fighting them (the terrorists) over there so that we will not have to fight them over here!”

FAMOUS LAST WORDS: “We are fighting the terrorists over there so we will not have to fight them over here!” And soon, terrorists began infiltrating the US.

HOW IT WENT DOWN Calculating neocons in the GW Bush admin came up with that cockamamie rationale for duping Bush into waging the $$trillion dollar "War on Terror."

At that time, this small band of pukes----and they alone----held the secret list of countries they wanted the US to invade in their quest for Endless Global War. They then leashed up McC to lay out the scheme for Endless War and proceeded to "manage" his losing campaign.

Keep in mind, the pukes were fomenting amnesty for illegals together with the War on Terrorism (Bush and McC were cheerleaders for amnesty). The pukes seemed to know the best way to get terrorsists into the US was by amnestying illegals.

We are now witnessing the terrible consequences of these activities----THE reason why pukes linked amnesty with terrroism.

Their hatred for America has finally been unmasked.

Janet Napolitano is sure doing a great job as head of Homeland Security. Unfortunately, she is aiding and abetting Somalia jihadists' homeland security. This woman is a complete waste of carbon credits.

OBAMA/INCOMPETANO'S VERY DISTURBING GOVT MINDSET Obama/Incompetano pulled out all the stops to go after American "extremists" few months back but seem "unable" to go after bombers and terrorists.

Keep in mind, Americans look at the Christmas Day undie bomber with fear and trepidation, and demand justice. Ohaha/Incompetano, Holder, Emanuel, Axelrod, Soros and that bunch, look at the bomber with kindness and understanding, b/c he was out to "get" those evil Americans.

No more proof is needed than Obama/Incompetano's profiling Americans as “rightwing extremists.”

On April 7, 2009, their contempt for Americans spewed full force when DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis sent out a nationwide alert to US L/E to act against "evil" conservatives. DHS identified “rightwing extremists” as a "danger" and defined “rightwing extremists” in a footnote, as follows.

OBAMA/INCOMPETANO ORDERS TO SUPPRESS AND DESTROY AMERICANS. EXCERPT DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis to L/E: "Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."

DHS later said that the report was not an attempt to squash First Amendment Rights for conservatives----only "hate groups"---- but, there was NO attempt to exempt anyone from these broad generalizations. Obama/Incompetano's report paints EVERY ASPECT OF AMERICAN CONSERVATISM as "suspect."

This is indicative of a very disturbing government mindset. Obama/Incompetano's documented contempt for Americans, and their orders to L/E to surveil and supress Americans......contrasts sharply with their kid glove handling of terrorists bent on violence and destruction.

She also said our border is secure. Of course that was just a few days before Rob Krentz was murdered on his own ranch.

Yeah, but when she heard of the Krentz murder, Napolitano said, "Amnesty for all murderers of Americans."

Look up their family members,any areas which might be connected with the smuggler.

See if there is any places where they hire Somali illegal immigrants and raid them then shut them down.

Fire the idiot in charge of DHS.

I will never forget that Reid and company had a rally for amnesty on the very same day as the services for Rob Krentz.

Has Obama made a statement about the Krentz murder? Has he made a statement about the cartel war causing issues in Ft Hancock, TX.? Has Obama made a statement about the various home invasions both on and away from the border by illegals?

I have a message for our politicians: NO AMNESTY, not now, not ever. There has always been a legal way to enter this country and apply to work here or become a citizen. Citizens from Mexico have been allowed to do so in far greater numbers than from any other country. Breaking the law should not be rewarded.

The Ohaha Administration could care less. Sucking up to non-citizens is more important than American lives. Illegals are another voting bloc they grab onto to save their sorry elected behinds.

Sickening.

I agree w/ Tancredo: DHS' Napolitano should resign in wake of Rob Krentz' murder.

Americans are angry about this problem............. angry at the deterioration of our culture, angry that they are forced to subsidize freeloading lawbreakers from other countries so politicians can get new voters.

And angry at our Nation’s deteriorating position in the world, at our debts and deficits, our spending and taxing, and their threatened security by drug cartels.

Just think of the thousands of warnings by conservative spokespersons and TV pundits since 9/11 about terrorists sneaking into this country over the border. These prophets were ignored and dismissed by the state-controlled media till their highly vocal alarms were hardly heard anymore.

Now these Muzzie guys are embedded God knows where.....and the treasonous media will deny any blame once the violent incidents we know are coming begin.

B, look at the bright side. In my youth the only knowledge I would have had of Somali border bandit tribes would have been in the Kodachrome pages of The National Geographic.

Nowadays, when I want to see a polygamist, camel-rustling, goat-buggering, child-mutilating, Muslim SOB in quaint and colorful native garb, all I have to do is walk down any street in Lewiston, ME.

This, this is progress!
