The Mysterious Case of Missing Saudi Student
On October 15, 2006, a young Saudi Arabian male named Anwar Al,* (His full name will not be used for legal reasons) claiming to be an engineering student at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock,
presented what must have been false documents to United States Customs and Immigration at an east coast airport and managed to slip into the country illegally. This is something that is not easily done: for a citizen of Saudi Arabia to get into the United States to attend an institution of higher learning requires the scrutiny of multiple, Cabinet level federal agencies. Customs was the last line in a series of Homeland Security controls that began halfway around the world at the US Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Anyone who has picked up a newspaper since September 11, 2001 understands why this is the procedure: fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers were Saudi nationals. ~sNip~ So how did this Saudi kid presenting himself as a student slip into the United States without being stopped? And what was his reason for doing so? And illegal entry is only one of the federal offenses Anwar Al appears to have committed. Others raise even more serious alarms; events just three days after being admitted to the US involving this young, Saudi male raise the national security stakes exponentially. What happened next is enough to make you ask, just who is Saudi Arabia sending our way anyway and what exactly are we doing about it?
Please Do Not Leave Your Bags Unattended
On October 18, 2006. Federal Air Marshal Jeffrey Denning was about to catch a mission flight out of Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. when a piece of luggage left unattended in a crowded area caught his attention.

"Apparently Anwar Al applied for a US visa with doctored paperwork from the University of Arkansas. Despite the required face-to-face interview with US Embassy officials (a fact confirmed with me by the State Department) no one caught this. Instead, an embassy worker issued Al a visa to come to a University in the middle of a University semester, a highly irregular time. Al got on a plane and flew into the United States, despite his name being on a terrorist watch list. Al passed, undetected, through Customs and Immigration despite the fact that he presented what must have been fraudulent travel documents and despite the fact that his name was on terrorist watch list. Three days after his illegal entry, he was involved in a suspicious incident at an airport that involved six US Federal Agencies. Not one of them detained him for further questioning; ICE agents never examined his travel documents; an Arabic speaker never questioned him in his native tongue; and bomb-sniffing dogs never examined his bags. FBI couldn't "verify" that this particular young man was the terrorist on the watch list, so Al was let go. Al never showed up for class. Four months after he arrived, in February 2007, University officials reported him missing. ICE agents never contacted the University for a follojw-up to his absence, nor did agents from FBI. Anwar Al had successfully slipped past every, single federal control system put in place to catch someone like him in a post-9/11 world. He remains at large.
For those of you who haven’t, read the entire series. It is really frightening.
OK. I'll admit to being clueless here.
How would one go about doing that?
Haven't verified whether they must be read on line, be a subscriber to access, save them etc...
Response: The reason being is that jobs must be provided for the unemployable.
That is a great list!
And the moonbats and Beltway Bozos don’t have a clue...just another demonstration of why all the unemployables are government employees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
