American on US no-fly list stranded in Egypt
AP ^ | 06/16/2010

Posted on 06/16/2010 3:13:58 PM PDT by too_cool_for_skool

CAIRO — A Virginia man, stuck in Egypt for the last six weeks living in a cheap hotel and surviving on fast food, said Wednesday his name was placed on a U.S. no-fly list because of a trip to Yemen.

Yahya Wehelie, 26, who was born in Fairfax, Virginia, to Somali parents was returning with his brother Yusuf from 18 months studying in Yemen, when Egyptian authorities stopped him from boarding his flight to New York saying the FBI wanted to speak with him.

Wehelie said he was then told by FBI agents in Egypt that his name was on a no-fly list because of people he met in Yemen and he now cannot board a U.S. airline or enter American airspace. His passport was also canceled and new one issued only for travel to the United States, which expires on Sept. 12. He does not have Somali citizenship.

...

"It's amazing how the U.S. government can do something like this," he told The Associated Press from his ramshackle hotel in downtown Cairo.

"I'm cool with all their fighting terrorism and all that, I'm cool with that, I like that, more power to them," he said in American accented English, wearing baggy basketball shorts and a long white T-shirt.

"My home is America and I don't know why I can't go back there," he said, adding that he even suggested to the FBI to "put me in like ConAir or something ... in an airplane with a bunch of U.S. marshals or whatever, in handcuffs just get me back home."

The guy has a point, if the FBI wants to be extra careful why don't they just give him the ConAir treatment. Although in the movie everybody escapes, lol.

18 months studying in Yemen

Now what would one be studying in Yemen for 18 months? What are Yemeni schools noted for?

We are probably better off with this fellow in a cheap hotel in Egypt than in the US. We might even subsidize his Big HalaliMacs.

Anything that an American has to go to Yemen to learn for the past 18 months should buy him a spot on the no-fly list, keep him where he is.

Let me get this straight, he has been associating with known terrorist, and now he is upset that he has been placed on the on-fly list.

Me thinks that the saying “If you don’t want to wake up with fleas, don’t sleep with dogs” is very appropriate.

“American Stuck In Egypt Due To No-Fly List”

“Virginian Yahya Wehelie, 26, In Yemen To Study Arabic, Restricted From Boarding Any U.S.-Bound Flight”
Wehelie: ‘It’s amazing how the U.S. government can do something like this’
CAIRO (CBS)

snippet: “Yahya Wehelie, 26, who was born in Fairfax, Virginia, to Somali parents was returning from 18 months studying in Yemen, when Egyptian authorities stopped him from boarding his flight to New York saying the FBI wanted to speak with him.”

SNIPPET: “U.S. authorities have put Americans studying in Yemen under heavy scrutiny after a number of failed terrorist attacks were linked back to Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen.

The Council On American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) claims many American citizens delayed abroad under similar circumstances have been subjected to so-called pressure tactics. “

You are known by your associates.

Ok, so he can’t fly but he can take a ship. Or easier yet, fly into Mexico and cross over with all the other OTM illegals at the border. There’s ways to get here and with his Yemen buddies’ influence, I’m sure he can think of other ways. Sounds like he’s whining to make a point with the media or this is some sort of dry run scenario to find holes in the system.

We need a no in country list.

If they don’t want people on the no fly list to buy guns, then the list needs to be definitive that the people on the list are a threat. Any list that definitive should also keep and kick people out of the country.

I have a name that is on the no fly list, once they check my info I am always cleared to get on the plane. If they won’t clear him even after talking to the FBI, I am sure it is for a good reason.

What does an Americanized kid of Somali parentage need to learn in Yemen? This punk was “studying” terrorism and making questionable friends. Good on on the FBI. The rule should be: you go to a country like Yemen or Somalia or Pakistan, you hang out with our enemies, you can’t come back. He can just sweat it out in a wonderful Muslim country and get really acquainted with his “culture.” Do not pass go; do not collect $100. They will eventually let him return, I am sure, but from that time on he should be watched, tracked, phone-tapped and everything else. Maybe he can come home on a boat.

"living in a cheap hotel and surviving on fast food"

Oh the horror! Oh the hugh manatee!

You couldn't find, say a community college in VA to study information tech? Is yemen the pinnacle for this kind of study?

I doubt it but we do know that it is the go to place for another kind of study.

" his mother Shamsa Noor said she sent her sons to Yemen to learn Arabic and get some direction in their lives".

Yeah I think we can figure that one out.

This guy has more red flags than a may day parade and he wonders how he got in this predicament?

The no-fly designation doesn't sound unreasonable.

The FBI seems to finally be prioritizing their targets - a young Somali man, "studying" in Yemen, talking to people designated as dangerous, and probably much more with the help of the Egyptian Intel. Also, the guy says he's "cool" with authorities protecting his native soil from enemy combatants... not the most definitive endorsement for the WOT I've ever heard.

He's not allowed to travel back to America on an airship flying at 40,000 ft. Maybe he can catch a ride back to The States on one of the Somali pirate skiffs? ;-)

If you read the article, his passport was canceled and replaced w/ one that only allows travel to the US, so he couldn’t fly to Canada or Mexico and then walk across the border even if he wanted to.

If he is completely innocent, I’m sympathetic to his plight because I’ve done my share of international travel and some of the US Border bureaucracy is downright Kafka-esque.

They’re not saying he can’t come back into the country, they’re just saying he’s not allowed to fly into the country. Ok fine, then let him fly into Mexico and he can take a bus home - that protects us from any plane-bombing or hijacking funny business. But some reason they disallow that too. But they say he can take a boat directly into the states. Whaa?

American Man in Limbo on No-Fly List

By SCOTT SHANE

Published: June 15, 2010

SNIPPET: “WASHINGTON — As a 26-year-old Muslim American man who spent 18 months in Yemen before heading home to Virginia in early May, Yahya Wehelie caught the attention of the F.B.I. Agents stopped him while he was changing planes in Cairo, told him he was on the no-fly list and questioned him about his contacts with another American in Yemen, one accused of joining Al Qaeda and fatally shooting a hospital guard.”

New Jersey jihadist arrested in Yemen worked at nuclear power plants

“New Jersey jihadist arrested in Yemen worked at nuclear power plants”

SNIPPET: “The South Jersey man who Yemini officials are calling a terrorist with links to al-Qaeda previously worked at three local nuclear power plants.

Sharif Mobley, 26, is being held in a jail in Yemen after he allegedly killed a police guard and seriously injured another during a shootout at a hospital on Monday.

The Buena, N.J. native has also been accused of taking part in several acts of terrorism, Yemini officials say. He also purportedly has ties to the same branch of al-Qaeda who are suspected of attempting to blow up a U.S. airliner on its way to Detroit on Christmas.”

SNIPPET: “Former high school classmate Roman Castro says Mobley was always fiercely religious and tried to convert high school friends to Islam.

Castro says he ran into Mobley during an Army tour in Iraq around four years ago. The two had a short exchange, with Mobley telling him to “Get the hell away from me, you Muslim killer,” according to Castro.

A former neighbor said Mobley moved to Yemen two years ago to study Islam.”

Yahya Wehelie, from Fairfax, Virginia, US, displays his US passport, in Cairo, Egypt, Wednesday, June 16, 2010. A Virginia man, stuck in Egypt for the last six weeks, living in a cheap hotel and surviving on fast food, said Wednesday that he was told his name was on a U.S. no-fly list because of people he met during a trip to Yemen. Wehelie, 26, who was born in Fairfax, Virginia, to Somali parents was returning from 18 months studying in Yemen, when Egyptian authorities stopped him from boarding his flight to New York saying the FBI wanted to speak with him. Wehelie said he was then told his name was on a no-fly list and he now cannot board a U.S. airline or enter American airspace. (AP Photo/Ben Curtis)

I was hoping we had a ‘no sail’ list, too. As airlines choke off terrorist immigration, I don’t like the idea of them on boats - especially with ‘luggage’ the size of a back pack. Sail into a commercial center, detonate your back pack - all without hazarding the no-fly list.

“Another American Tied to Al Qaeda in Yemen”

SNIPPET: “Sources say that Mobley had a relationship with Anwar Al-Awlaki, a former imam at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has been linked to a series of terror plots. Awlaki is considered an inspiration for Nidal Malik Hasan before the Fort Hood massacre and also is suspected of encouraging failed Christmas Day airline bomber Umar Abdulmutallab.

Mobley previously lived in Philadelphia and Newark, Delaware, where he occasionally worshipped at the mosque of the Islamic Society of Delaware. The Imam of the mosque, Abdel-Hadi Shehata, said Mobley moved to Yemen to learn Arabic and study Islam.”

“Al Qaeda link, a gun in hand
Jersey man held in Yemen”

By KITTY CAPARELLA
Philadelphia Daily News

SNIPPET: “In 2007, a West Philadelphia imam warned Sharif Mobley not to go to Yemen to study Arabic, but the South Jersey native and his wife, Zinga Bey, traveled there anyway.”

SNIPPET: “A law-enforcement source confirmed this week that Mobley is a U.S. citizen whom Yemen authorities identified as “the terrorist Sharif Mobayli” and who had been mistakenly called “a German citizen of Somali origin.”

SNIPPET: “Yemen’s Defense Ministry’s Web site has claimed that “Mobayli” was “an al Qaeda member involved in several terrorist attacks.””

SNIPPET: “According to sources, Mobley told friends that he had met Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical American-born imam of Yemen descent who had an e-mail exchange with U.S. Army doctor Nidal Malik Hasan before Hasan allegedly killed 12 soldiers at Fort Hood last November. Al-Awlaki also allegedly had preached to two 9/11 hijackers at a Washington-area mosque.

In Yemen, where al-Awlaki now lives, Mobley continued their relationship, the sources said.”

SNIPPET: “Inside Mobley’s computer was video of him teaching children in a 2004 weekend sports camp in the U.S. The camp’s leaders had a dispute with Mobley and asked him to leave “for his radical views,” according to sources.”

SNIPPET: “Joe Delmar, the nuclear spokesman for PSE&G, a New Jersey utility company, said Sharif Mobley worked as a laborer for several contractors at three New Jersey plants on Artificial Island in Lower Alloways Creek from 2002 to 2008, carrying supplies and doing maintenance work.

Delmar said he satisfied federal background checks as recently as 2008.”
