Homeland Security Released Terror Operative Who Illegally Crossed Border (PJM Exclusive)
Pajamas Media ^ | September 26, 2011 | Patrick Poole

They don't have a clue where he is.

Two Bangladeshis who were caught by Customs and Border Protection illegally crossing the border in June 2010 admitted under questioning that they were members of a designated terrorist organization that signed on to a fatwa by Osama bin Laden pledging to wage war against Americans.

But amazingly, after one of the men requested asylum, he was released on bond. And now one Homeland Security official tells me, concerning the released terror operative, “We don’t have the slightest idea where he is now.”

The two men, Muhammad Nazmul Hasan and Mirza Muhammad Saifuddin, were intercepted near Naco, Arizona, not long after they had crossed the border on June 25, 2010. During their interrogation, one of the men admitted that they were members of Harakat-ul-Jihad-i-Islami Bangladesh (HuJI-B), which was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in February 2008. Earlier this month the group claimed responsibility for a bombing a courthouse in New Delhi. That attack killed 11 and wounded at least 45 others.

A 2006 State Department report described HuJI-B’s goals and connections to other terrorist groups, including al-Qaeda:

The goal of HUJI-B is to establish Islamic rule in Bangladesh. The group’s core membership consists primarily of Bangladeshi veterans of fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan. The Bangladeshi Government arrested a senior HUJI-B leader, Mufti Abdul Hannan, in October. HUJI-B has connections to the Pakistani militant groups Harakat ul-Jihad-I-Islami (HUJI) and Harakat ul-Mujahedin (HUM), which advocate similar objectives in Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir. The leaders of HUJI-B and HUM both signed the February 1998 fatwa sponsored by Usama bin Ladin that declared American civilians to be legitimate targets for attack.

Capturing two terrorist operatives illegally crossing the border would appear to be a big win for the Border Patrol. But in a stunning move, one of the men was released on bond after claiming asylum.

A Homeland Security official I met with last week in Washington, D.C., who was familiar with the case says that no government agency is tasked with monitoring those that are released pending asylum hearings, and that the terror operative’s whereabouts now are unknown.

That this guy was allowed out on bond is criminal. We don’t have the slightest idea where he is now. If he sets off a car bomb in Tucson or Phoenix, or shoots up a shopping mall or elementary school somewhere, there will be a lot of finger-pointing. But nobody seems that concerned about it now. And this is not the first time something like this has happened.

Back in March I reported here exclusively at PJMedia on a Department of Justice memo submitted in a court case of Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane, who ran a human smuggling ring out of Brazil on behalf of the Somali Al-Shabaab terrorist organization. Dhakane was nearly granted asylum, but was eventually charged with lying about his terrorist associations based on his conversations with a jailhouse informant. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Dhakane’s case was representative of the surging wave of Somalis who have been intercepted crossing the border over the past two years. And now some officials are worried that the case of Hasan and Saifuddin might be the tip of the iceberg of extremist Bangladeshis who are leaving their country under pressure from authorities there cracking down on HuJI-B and setting up terror-support operations in the United States. And the preferred transit route into the U.S. appears to be illegally entering over the southern border — the route taken by the two Bangladeshi terror operatives.

close the border ? I'll just ask for asylum.
In fact, every single illegal

( all 12 million - 12 million is a number that hasn't changed in 15 years, but the number of "no health care" went from 21 million to 50 million in almost the same period)

should step up and ask for asylum...who needs the Dream Act ?

what a great plan Islam has for terrorists. If those crazy Americans catch you just tell them you are seeking asylum and they immediately let you go - works every time. Then hide in plain sight on the streets of any major city until you are called to action.

brilliant!!!

He now works for ATF making straw purchases and reselling the guns in Mexico.

He is looking into buying some of the shoulder fired rockets that disappeared in Libya.

Why doesn’t HLS just paint bullseyes on the biggest cities and on the most vulnerable things in our country to make it even easier for the terrorists?

And aslyum for terrorists? Really? The very people who are supposed to be defending our country and Constitution are the ones weakening it and destroying it the most.

I feel like a woman without a country.

It is pretty clear that the Patriot Act is not targeted at Islamic terrorism rather it is an American KGB targeted at the Amerian people and our freedom. We can stop pretending now.

Big Sis will molest a few extra babies and grandmas at the airport to make up for this.

Homeland security doesn't have the time or manpower to keep track of illegal aliens, terrorist suspects or, especially, terrorist suspects who are also illegals.

They would have to pull people who are watching Tea Party voters, military vets, subcribers to Shotgun News and other Bitter Clingers.

It figures they’d relieve you of that, complete idiots. I’ll bet you’d carried it for years.

The wife had a very small set of fold up scissors she’d had for many years and they took those from her, needless to say she was upset but couldn’t do squat about it unless she hadn’t gotten on the plane.

You're reply hints that you might think that I am some tough
old dogface who carried this memento of my service. I bought
it at a gun show some years ago, and have replaced it. It
still pisses me off that they took it, though!

Well of course... you are on FR but I am talking about the country as a whole and its institutions... nothing has escaped his evil touch... or his marxist islamo radical plants in the most sensitive positions. It will take generations to undo his deeds... and maybe a civil war.

This is criminal wrecklessness at best, treason at worst.

But, given our president's islamic upbrining, the Attorney General appointed by him that lets those intimidating voters at the polls go free, and the Homeland Security Secretary, tragically is is also not surprising.
