Posted on 04/29/2011 8:46:36 AM PDT by Nachum
Three people convicted of crimes as a result of a terrorism-related investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) were later naturalized as U.S. citizens by the Obama administration, according to federal auditors. The March 2011 audit (released on April 21, 2011) by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), entitled Criminal Alien Statistics: Information on Incarcerations, Arrests and Costs, shows that three individuals were among defendants where the investigation involved an identified link to international terrorism but they were charged with violating other statutes [not directly related to terrorism], including fraud, immigration, drugs,

WHY IS THIS OKAY???? If a republican can’t beat Obama in 2012 with all this ammo, then there really is no hope for America!
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Pathetic that the GOP hasn’t found spine and guts to expose the numerous actions of the Regime that one could conclude are compromising our national security.
Comment: If something harms our country; then this administration and its individual members will see that it is done.
It is treason and aiding and abetting terrorists yet again for Obama and his administration and it is all somehow okay?
I feel what you are saying as well. You would THINK Fred Flintstone could beat Obama yet the media are saying different. Are the media using propaganda to help Obama by doctoring and printing the polls that favor him?
Why is it April and the GOP has no one but Romney?
I am praying Rep. West changes his mind and decides to run. I would LOVE to have him as my president.
To Obama that is a high recommendation.
If you have broken our laws or hurt the USA in some way you are a prime candidate for favored treatment by this administration.
Obama doesn't trust honest people or people without some kind of perversion or dark past because he can't blackmail or manipulate them.
Don't overlook all the tax cheats and scammers he put in his cabinet.
He has aided and abetted and provided comfort to the enemy.
But no one will peep a word as they will be called a racist.
You know what, the race card is old so where are the GOP?
Not one GOP candidate, not one GOP leader period, will say anything about this.
Rep. West posts on Facebook via Twitter every day. You should see the support he has and people begging him to run in 2012. I really feel at this point he is the only real hope for America. He is so good about posting what he is doing and what he thinks. He is very accessible and open. And he would destroy Obama in any debate on any subject. Oh, please Rep. West - save America!
“...If a republican cant beat Obama in 2012 with all this ammo, then there really is no hope for America!...”
Never underestimate the ability of the GOP to do the stupidest thing possible to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory...
So true - it’s what we’ve come to expect.
WTF is going on this country?
And why is Trump the only one with balls to tell it like it is.
FU McCain, Snow, Collins
They think nobody's paying attention, but we are. We are. And they're not.
Freepers send this to Col. Allen West and he will say something about this!
The liberals are clueless though. I was talking to a young “educated” liberal just yesterday and I asked him if he regretted voting for 0bama and he just gave me this blank stare, and he was kind of confused as he said “why should I regret voting for him?”
West does not have the name recognition to get the nomination or be elected. However, I would love to see him as Sarah’s VP.
A few Facebook comments or Twitters does not equate to the millions of votes it would take to win election. In a poll among candidates I doubt that he would break 5%. Sad but true.
While the GOP never fails for stupidity the real blame lies with an electorate so ignorant that it makes the GOP look like a collection of geniuses.
Obama didn’t have the name recogination when he announced, either. With money, West could easily get name recognition. I pray he runs. He is really the only one I am really confident in.
Palin has a tell all book coming out by one of her former aides.
The media hate her and will stop at nothing to stop her; this I agree with. But it really does not look like she is running.
Of course not. (A very wise man once said, 'If you don't understand a politician's actions or reasoning - follow the money.')
We certainly have some really sick people in the WH.
Where the heck did that rumor come from? Trump’s a liberal Democrat through and through.
West has internet social media name recognition.
His intelligence and leadership qualities impress all who have seen this video.
I have heard people speak of him in the grocery store line as the only one who could beat Obama and how he would be the media’s worst nightmare and give us pride in debates.
Thanks for the link.
The only legit part to that ‘rumor’ looks to be that the freshman congressman would accept an invite to join Trump’s ticket, were Trump to get the GOP nomination. Not surprising given West’s self-confidence and ambition.
amen! I love his moral courage and his leadership qualities, he would make a great President.
It sounds like after prayer and enough AMERICANS saying we need him to serve his country in the role of President he could not say no.
As to, OT: Charles Krauthammer, he has turned into a beltway limocon.
Obama had spoken at the 2004 convention, to great acclaim (among libs and the MSM). He also had his Senate race against Keyes which attracted a fair amount of national attention. West has no where the recognition, IMO.
he has what is so very lacking in government leaders today, Moral courage, leadership.
We know way more about West than we did about Obama at the same point. He has much more support than you apparently realize. If he runs, he has my vote. If he doesn’t, not sure who I will vote for but it won’t be Romney.
Yes and what good is a thriving economy if we are blown to smithereens? National Security and foreign affairs need cleaned up ASAP. I really feel he would bring troops home where needed and fight the enemy in a more strategic way.
As well as securing our borders while still allowing those that want to be Americans to be; in the proper ways.
West would make a superb President.
I am not defending Trump but I saw that Drudge headline saying he dropped the F bomb and no where IN THE ARTICLE did it mention that he did.
We have been down this road before. McCain won the nomination in 2008 primarily because the Right declared Holy War on those (such as Guiliani) who could have beaten him.
Huckabee, Hunter, Thompson were among those who were posed as credible alternatives. Anyone with half a brain knew they had NO chance to win the presidency.
While West is clearly preferable to any of the above mentioned pretenders he is still far too unknown to win. The same is true of Paul Ryan who is perhaps more qualified but not well known enough.
In my mind Sarah is the only one with the name recognition and natural charisma to take the nomination and the White House. West has not encountered ANYTHING like the media Hate that will be unleashed upon the Republican nominee. Sarah has weathered the most unprecedented, coordinated campaign of Hate I have ever seen in fifty years of watching politics.
He has no more chance than Alan Keyes.
An individual applying for naturalization must demonstrate good moral character for a statutory period of timefrom 5 years preceding the application up to admission to citizenship. This includes not having been convicted of crimes, such as murder, rape, drug trafficking, or other aggravated felonies prior to or during that period, as well as not having been convicted of other crimes during that period, such as certain drug offenses or convictions that led to 180 days or more of prison time.
Based upon our analysis of USCIS and DOJ data, three of the individuals on the DOJ list received U.S. citizenship after their convictions. Two were convicted of unlawful production of an identity document and one was convicted of transferring funds out of the country in violation of U.S. sanctions.
According to USCIS documentation, in all three cases
the convictions were outside of the statutory period, were not aggravated felonies, and resulted in no prison time for the defendants;
all required background checks were conducted and resolved with appropriate law enforcement agencies; and
no national security, public safety, or other grounds of ineligibility existed.
As a result, USCIS determined that each of these individuals were able to demonstrate good moral character within the required period of time and met all other requirements for naturalization.
This abuse of authority never ceases to amaze, no matter how many times I witness it.
West would have zero problems with the media. Read about how he was targeted in Fla. by the same DNC operatives that would attack him if he were a POTUS nominee and he did not blink nor flinch. The media cannot touch this man no matter how hard they tried. The worst they could pull would be what you are that he is a freshmen and that would be flung right back intheirface regarding Obama and how they covered for him and they would shut up REAL quick. As well as experience/education wise, West is light years above Obama.
We don’t even know if Obama really got a high school diploma. West does not require a teleprompter to speak.
Besides when the media attacks West they would have to call them selves racists in their next breathe. West Vs. Obama in a debate would be gold.
I do to understand why any of our good, conservative leaders will not step up to the plate. This is not the time for those conservative leaders to tell us that they are not ready to run for president. If not now, then never, because 2016 will be too late. God help us all if we don’t get the right person in the White House and more conservatives in the House and the Senate.
