'Ready To Die For My New Country': Gaining Quick Citizenship In Combat Boots ["Security Risk"]

'Ready To Die For My New Country': Gaining Quick Citizenship In Combat Boots

Oumama Kabli, center, celebrates becoming a U.S. citizen during a naturalization ceremony on April 15 at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Kabli, 19, is a private in the Army National Guard and entitled to become a citizen without the normal five-year residency requirement because of her military service.

By Bill Briggs This story is part of NBC News’ series “Immigration Nation,” an in-depth examination of immigration in America. A wartime edict to entice immigrants to join the military in exchange for rapid naturalization has created 83,000 new American citizens. But one critic worries the initiative will become permanent — or perhaps even expand — essentially outsourcing more U.S. combat jobs and, he argues, injecting the armed forces with an increased security risk.

Launched via a 2002 executive order by President George W. Bush, the program lets green-card holders who enlist in the U.S. armed services bypass the typical five-year residency rule and apply immediately for citizenship at no fee. More than 10 percent of such naturalization ceremonies have taken place in 28 countries abroad, including 3,412 in Iraq, 2,102 in Japan and 1,134 in South Korea, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or USCIS, which administers the process.

I'm ok with it if they are from Samoa or are Ghurkas. Even Sikhs.

Moslems? Not so much. Gangbangers from Mexico? Nope.

Yep, and honorable discharge. LOL! On the other hand, I agree ... serve in the military and you should be granted front of the line status for citizenship.

Ever notice that the 'invade first ask questions later' neocons like Bush, McCain, Grahamnesty and Rubio all have been on the fast track for amnesty?
This is why...cheap IED fodder.

Who here will want their own kids to join the military to invade Syria then to be treated as invaders by those Muslims who we are told the US is liberating? Then we get to pay to rebuild it.

Nope, we need amnesty to get those recruits.

Agreed.

After proper vetting, anyone who volunteers to serve and does so honorably can be a fellow citizen of mine.

An army of immigrants from countries where civil war and wholesale slaughter of civilians are common occurrences. Perfect for killing off the "white devil" and their "cracker babies".

Obama must be smiling from ear to ear at such an idea.

In the Mobile Riverine Force, we had a young man from South America, who enlisted to earn American Citizenship. Unfortunately, he was killed in combat. His name is on the Wall, along with his other brothers-in-arms.

Maybe, just maybe, he and others who join and serve, deserve citizenship more than those who were born here, but do nothing to earn the privileges and immunities of citizenship.

A woman I worked with long ago was a Canadian whose Canadian husband joined the US Army,served in Vietnam and was granted US citizenship not long after his discharge.If someone serves honorably in our Armed Forces and is otherwise fit for citizenship I have no problem with that.OTOH...those who swim the Rio Grande....

It’s hard to imagine the benefits of citizenship over the immunities that illegal aliens have under the current leadership. Free food, housing, education, college degrees, medical benefits, drivers license, jury duty, tax refunds, voting in some cases, dang you name and they’ve got it.

Yup---jest rounding up cheap IED fodder for all the invasions and ground wars the pukeneoes are secretly planning over Brie and chilled Cristal at the Four Seasons lounge w/ downtrodden Republicans.

The salivating "invade first ask questions later" types----Bush, McCain, Grahamnesty and Rubio---- all on the fast track for amnesty, are all puckererd up, on their knees, prostrate in obeisance to neocons.

The scenario is so familiar: the pukeneos dupe the US into invading some Mideast hellhole--announcing that the US is liberating "democracy-hungry Muslims."

Et voila, another gang of hate-filled Muslims are born, and set sail for America. BTW, US taxpayers get the bill to rebuild the war-torn country......and the pukes live happily ever after w/ zillions in war profiteering.

NTL REVIEW/DAVID HANSON----The Tsarnaev brothers have offered us a teachable moment about what have become near-suicidal US immigration policies. Unless the government can assure the public that it is now enforcing immigration laws already on the books,

(1) that foreign nationals must at least avoid crime and stay off public assistance, and,

(2) that it is disinclined to grant "asylum" (free ride on the US gravy train) to “fearful refugees” from war-torn Islamic regions and then foot the bill for them to go back and forth between America and their supposedly hostile homelands on the taxpayers' dime,

.....there will be little support for the current immigration bill.

Great post, thank you.

I need to read it slowly, so I can properly digest.

While I'm at it, I would like to leave you with a gift that also requires spiritual discernment. Please contact me if you are interested in seeing more truth. Amen.

Police Say The Naked Man Arrested In Boston Was Not Tamerlan Tsarnaev

Both his nutty parents and his straight up Uncle say they are 100% certain this video is Tamerlan. Look at any of the pictures we have of Tamerlan, we can all agree that his most significant feature is his nose. Now, look at the crystall clear video images. This naked man is obviously Tamerlan beyond any reasonable doubt.

On Thursday night while police were hunting in Watertown, Mass. for bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, at one point they arrested a naked man who looks a lot like Tamerlan.

Police say the naked man is not Tamerlan, despite various conspiracy theories going around the Internet.

According to the official account, Tamerlan died after a shootout with cops, riddled with bullets and shrapnel before being run over by his brother who was fleeing the scene in an SUV.

Take a look: I dare you!

http://www.businessinsider.com/the-naked-man-mystery-role-in-boston-2013-4#ixzz2RnIPaCad

FBI

The Watertown police department got back to us via email just to say that the naked man was not Tamerlan Tsarnaev (pictured on right and in high-res here).

The shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers occurred on Laurel Street. The journalist interviewed in this video describes naked man's capture near Nichols and Dexter, literally down the street from the shootout.

Naked man was apparently stripped, questioned, clothed, questioned some more, and reportedly let go. It's likely police stripped him because they were under citywide bomb threat and wanted to make sure he didn't have a suicide vest, but the police did not comment on that.

Needless to say, Business Insider is interested to hear Naked Man's personal story — send any tips to tips@businessinsider.com.

http://www.businessinsider.com/the-naked-man-mystery-role-in-boston-2013-4#ixzz2RnIPaCad

Have any of you viewed the CNN footage of a Crisis Actor that was interviewed at the bombing and then again four days later as a witness to the Watertown shootout.

Maybe this oversight was due to the Sequester; HaHaHa.

Boston Terror, CIA’s Graham Fuller & CIA Operation-the Caucasus

Saturday, 27. April 2013 by Sibel Edmonds

Graham Fuller: Edmonds’ State Secrets Privilege, FBI Gladio-B Target, Handler-Sponsor of Turkey’s Imam Gulen

A major break in the Boston Terror CIA Connection took place last night when I came across a post outing CIA Operative Graham Fuller as the father of the woman married to Boston terror suspect’s infamous uncle Ruslan Tsarni.

Further confirmation of this bombshell was received via mainstream reporter Laura Rozen here. Let me first provide a few excerpts from the original reporting site (a real alternative media):

Boston Bombers’ Uncle Married Daughter of Top CIA Official

The uncle of the two suspected Boston bombers in last week’s attack, Ruslan Tsarni, was married to the daughter of former top CIA official Graham Fuller . Ruslan Tsarni married the daughter of former top CIA official Graham Fuller, who spent 20 years as operations officer in Turkey, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong.

In 1982 Fuller was appointed the National Intelligence Officer for Near East and South Asia at the CIA, and in 1986, under Ronald Reagan, he became the Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, with overall responsibility for national level strategic forecasting. …

Now, take a look at the most explosive aspect of this original report on Graham Fuller’s outing in the CIA Boston Terror Connection [All Emphasis Mine]:

On a more ominous note, Graham Fuller was listed as one of the American Deep State rogues on Sibel Edmonds’ State SecretsPrivilege Gallery,. Edmonds explained it featured subjects of FBI investigations she became aware of during her time as an FBI translator.

Criminal activities were being protected by claims of State Secrets, she asserted. After Attorney General John Ashcroft went all the way to the Supreme Court to muzzle her under a little-used doctrine of State Secrets, she put up twenty-one photos, with no names. One of them was Graham Fuller. …

I presented CIA’s Graham Fuller as one of the top culprits in my State Secrets Privilege Case when the government invoked the State Secrets Privilege and several additional gag orders to cover up the FBI’s investigations and files pertaining to CIA-NATO terror operations in Central Asia & the Caucasus since the mid-1990s.

Guess what? I provided this information to the US media long before it became public in 2008 via my website Not a single media outlet (including quasi and pseudo ones) was willing to touch this. And this, despite of all the gag orders, state secrets privilege invocations, congressional gag orders … you name it. I could name more than a dozen publications that said: ‘no way.’

Not only that. I have been covering one of the main CIA operation figures in Central Asia & the Caucasus-Imam Fethullah Gulen, and this Turkish Imam’s relationship and official Connections to CIA’s Graham Fuller. I’ve been doing this since 2009. Let me provide you with a few explosive examples and excerpts.

Graham Fuller, Crisis Actor Filmed Twice By CNN

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbqVqI1cWXc Perhaps budgetary restraints brought on by the Sequester forced CIA Ops Director Graham Fuller to utilize this Crisis Actor at the Boston Bombing and in Watertown where the alleged bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev Attempted to Surrender.

Watch these two videos and make up your mind before the MSM and the Regime closes the historical record forever.

Yeah, I always notice the “pukeneos”. They are very transparent.

first for amnesty
