A federal grand jury has returned a three-count indictment against a Saudi man, Naif Abdulaziz M. Alfallaj, after his fingerprints showed upon documents found by the U.S. military at an al Qaeda terrorist safe house in Afghanistan. The justice department has now also confirmed that Alfallaj did in fact train in an Al Queda terrorist camp in 2000. What is even more terrifying is this same man was confirmed to have attended a flight school in Oklahoma where he was issued a private pilot’s license in November 2016. His license was quickly revoked last year as federal authorities now consider him at risk for air piracy or terrorism because he tried to become a member of a terrorist organization.
Alfallaj, 35, first entered the United States in late 2011, when Barack Obama was POTUS, on a nonimmigrant visa based on his wife’s status as an international student. It has been confirmed that he lied on several questions on his visa application. Including whether he had ever supported or been a part of a terrorist organization.
Alfallaj was taken into federal custody on February 5th and faces up to 10 years in prison on each of two charges of visa fraud. He also faces up to eight years for lying about his involvement in international terrorism. If convicted, then he will spend his days inside of a jail cell for quite some time.
New York Post reports more on Alfallaj:
“The FBI recently discovered Naif Abdulaziz Alfallaj after his fingerprints matched those taken from a document found in Afghanistan, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
The captured document was an application to join the notorious Farook camp, where four of the 9/11 hijackers were trained, according to the newspaper.
Alfallaj — who has been living in Weatherford, Okla., with his family for several years — apparently filled out the application in 2000, when he was about 17, federal law enforcement officials told the Times.
At the time, the terror group founded by Osama bin Laden had already made its intentions of attacking the US and its allies known around the world.
Anyone who tried to join the camp would have known that al-Qaeda was a terrorist organization, the feds said.
People applying to join the camp needed an invitation, as well as a reference from someone trusted by al-Qaeda, before filling out what was known as a “mujahedeen data form,” according to the report.
Recruits learned how to use weapons and explosives at the camp before joining the ranks of jihadists fighting with al-Qaeda or the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Alfallaj, 35, who came to the US in about 2011 on a nonimmigrant visa, earned his private pilot’s license in 2016, according to public records and American officials. Noncitizens are required to provide fingerprints as part of the licensing process.”
Terrorists who attain pilots licenses can use their new knowledge to train other terrorists on how to fly. From there they can utilize aircraft to carry out terror attacks via suicide missions. A pilot license requirement should include more strict background checks for all applicants, both immigrant, and natural born citizens. This would help eliminate more incidents where people use their newly attained pilot license to participate in evil attacks that take innocent human lives. Terror attacks by suicide missions are frequent in the Islamic religion and they often use planes or motor vehicles. Some suicide attackers drive into things, some fly, but they all get caught or lose their life as well. They don’t accomplish anything that has a meaningful purpose. Victims perish, and the rest carry on because humans are resilient.
Our country should be careful about who attains pilot licenses. If the wrong person attains one, then joins a terrorist unit like al Qaeda, then people could lose their lives. America needs to put political correctness aside and promote common sense security and protection for all.
Leaving Barack Obama aside, George W. Bush wasn’t much better. Even though he wasn’t at fault for when we were attacked on September 11th, but he refused to secure our nation. He could have sealed the border and stopped immigration from areas where people despise us. Trump is taking care of that by placing travel restrictions on areas known to produce terrorists. They are not a “Muslim ban” as the mainstream media refers to it. Trump’s restrictions include higher levels of security and extreme vetting before allowing people into America. That’s not a ban, that’s just heightened security.
Please share if you want to prevent terrorists from attaining pilot licenses and also secure the American borders to protect us from evil.
