Good News: Illinois Hired Convicted Terrorist as Obamacare Navigator
Townhall.com ^ | February 27, 2014 | Guy Benson

During her tenure as an Obamacare "navigator," Rasmieh Yousef Odeh had access to Illinois consumers' sensitive personal data. Unbeknownst to those citizens, and to her employer, Ms. Odeh has an extremely sordid past. She was convicted for her role in three bombings, including one that killed two innocent people at an Israeli supermarket in the late 1960's:

Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in several bombings, including the 1969 attack on an upscale Shufersol grocery store, which killed two Hebrew University students who had stopped in to buy groceries for a hiking trip in the Jerusalem hills. Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe were killed by a bomb hidden in a candy box tucked on a shelf, which also injured nine or 10 others, according to a website maintained by the Israeli government to commemorate terror victims. The Illinois Department of Insurance quietly revoked Odeh’s certification as a Navigator In-Person Counselor on November 24, explaining in a disciplinary report that the decision was “based on an investigation which revealed that she had been convicted in Israel for her role in the bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem and failed to reveal the conviction on her application.”


Fortunately, Illinois officials pulled the plug on this woman relatively quickly; they were tipped off to her terrorist status by a US Attorney's office in Michigan. Disconcertingly, the state's background check didn't catch this -- shall we say -- rather significant omission from her resume. Even more alarming is the fact that the federal government doesn't even require states to conduct any criminal background checks on Obamacare navigators, a stunning reality confirmed by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in Congressional testimony in November:

Sebelius tells Cornyn It's Possible Obamacare Navigators Could Be Convicted Felons

National Review reported last month that Obamacare's 'Covered California' employed at least 43 ex-criminals as navigators, including several individuals with fraud convictions. Elsewhere in Obamacare news, a new Kaiser Family Foundation poll shows public support for the law still underwater by double-digits, with just 35 percent of Americans expressing a favorable opinion of it. Even more problematic, frets the Huffington Post, are sentiments among uninsured Americans -- the very people for whom the law was ostensibly passed to help:

I can't help but wonder how and why Rasmieh Yousef Odeh got an American visa. Murder is supposed to have no statue of limitations.

If we can track down and deport elderly ex-nazis who lied to get into the country, why can't we do the same for terrorists?

We all know the answer: because they are Muslim and reliable Democrat voters.

Criminals/socialists/totalitarians/terrorists…”at this point, what difference does it make?”, said the Sociopath of State. Oh, did I forget to include sociopath?

All the same. Degrees of scale.

Remember: It’s the Chicago/Obama way. Don’ ask, don’t bother to check.

I wonder how little ballerina Rahm Emanuel likes this fine kettle of fish?

How did she gain entry to the US? Doesn’t our immigration department have access to some DHS terrorist watch data?

I found this here

-- snip --

The indictment alleges that in 1995, she immigrated to the United States and naturalized as a citizen in 2004. In her immigration documents filed in the United States, the indictment alleges, Odeh omitted her arrest, conviction, and imprisonment overseas, which were material facts for the United States government in determining whether to grant her citizenship.

Thanks. It is very nice to see that at least one U.S. Attorney in Michigan's eastern district is doing her job . . .

But don't you feel warm and fuzzy that this perp has been living in the United States undetected for 18 years?
