No Iraqi Republican Guardsmen were given asylum. What they did was take off their uniforms and blend into the general population.
The ones we brought back were supposedly the ones that had opposed the government and were therefore on our side and likely to be harmed if left behind.
The problem was (as usual) we did a crappy job of vetting. Lot’s of bad guys were brought over here thinking they were good guys, while lots of actual good guys were left over there.
And NO government agency did any kind of watching. There is some number (I believe it is about two and a half thousand) that remain unaccounted for today.
So, you are saying that it is common knowledge that IRG agents and other Iraqi
agents snuck into the U.S. as defectors but our gov didn't watch them at all?
