"Refugee" Charged With Terror Plot in Texas

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

Looks like we have another Long Tall Texan trying to enforce sharia law. That would be Omar Faraj Saeed al Hardan aka Tex.

There is no indication whether this guy is a widow or an orphan, but look on the bright side: Had he not been arrested in such a timely matter, he might have been President Obama's guest at the State of the Union sitting right next to the First Lady.

Yet another one who came here and got status, returned to Syria to fight with ISIS for a while, and them was able to re-enter the U.S. What kind of twisted logic causes some to apparently believe that an increase in the number of refugees admitted in general will not result in a corresponding number of these types in particular. It's beyond me.

Since we are generalizing, what do you think of the campaign by U.S. veterans of war in Iraq who are working to cut through the red tape so that the translators and other Iraqis they worked with, who are (often with their families) subject to death threats in their homeland, can have their asylum in the United States accelerated? The vets are also raising money to put a few months rent down on a decent apartment, help their old buddies find jobs, introduce their kids to the local schools, in general, stay the course and help them get settled.

Should these veterans stop doing that, should those Iraqis who risked so much to help our armed forces be stranded in Iraq, because one or more Iraqi refugees contemplated a terror plot?

In specific, this refugee should be imprisoned or deported (assuming he is guilty as charged). But, how much are we going to GENERALIZE about Iraqi refugees?

By 1967 or 1968 I was opposed to continuing the misguided American military adventure in Vietnam. But, I have never had any doubt that we owed a refuge to the Hmong, since our military (mostly the CIA actually) had harnessed their entire tribe as military adjuncts, and left them in danger of extermination when we pulled out. (Some of them have committed crimes, or formed gangs, although nothing on the scale of the rackets Nguyen Cao Ky ran in Orange County -- he should have been left behind in Saigon).

I would make exceptions for those Iraqis or Afghans who worked with us.

Ditto for the Vietnamese though they never presented the same problems. We have the daughter of Hmong immigrants working in our office at UCI.

So how did this particular Iraqi get here? Any chance he might have "worked for us"? I thought that was the main channel for Iraqis to come here -- after all, they now have an elected democratic government. I never doubted that we owed the Hmong refuge, because our CIA turned the entire tribe into a paramilitary force, which would make them targets of the new government. But some Hmong have gone into criminal rackets, although nothing as big as Nguyen Co Ky.
