Report: Terrorists Exploit Food Stamps To Fund Domestic, International Attacks
Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | October 25, 2018 | Luke Rosiak

Posted on 10/27/2018 8:10:44 AM PDT by kevcol

The report provided numerous examples of fraudsters exploiting the food stamp program to fund terrorist activities.

A grocery store owner in Chicago was imprisoned in 2006 for stealing $1.4 million through food stamp fraud and aiding the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

In 2010, two Somali store owners in Michigan pleaded guilty to food stamp fraud and running an unlicensed money transfer business that sent money to “hot spots” in the Middle East and Africa.

In Indianapolis, a ring of convenience stores bought food stamps from customers for 50 cents on the dollar. The ringleader was arrested on a return flight from Yemen, and prosecutors suspected possible terror links.

One of the less obvious downfalls of the welfare state.

Criminals and terrorists exploit it to prey upon the larger society.

The US has multiple cancers — muzzies, commies/progressives
& feminists. They have all been growing and spreading for decades, and America is now very sick from them.

What treatment(s), now, will work?

50 cents on the dollar is pretty much the going rate everywhere for snap exchange.

How much research is valid when the food stamp program apparently was discontinued in 2009.

Can I still use paper food stamp coupons? (For SNAP Clients)

Dec 21, 2017 - No, as of 2009, paper food stamp coupons no longer have any value and cannot be used to purchase food items.

Now EBT cards are used. They work like credit cards.

I suspect the combined fraud by these bad guys pales in comparison to the fraud perpetrated right here at home.

As an intake interviewer at a local food bank I’m amazed at the brazenness of some of our clients in describing their successful and long standing food stamp fraud.

Really pisses me off because that’s OUR money they are stealing.
