FBI using elite surveillance teams to track at least 48 high risk ISIS suspects

All have one thing in common. via FBI using elite surveillance teams to track at least 48 high risk ISIS suspects

With as many as 1000 active cases, Fox News has learned at least 48 ISIS suspects are considered so high risk that the FBI is using its elite tracking squads known as the mobile surveillance teams or MST to track them domestically.

“There is a very significant number of people that are on suspicious watch lists, under surveillance,”  Republican Senator Dan Coats said.

Coats, who sits on the Select Committee on Intelligence, would not comment on specifics, but said the around the clock surveillance is a major commitment for the bureau. “The FBI together with law enforcement agencies across the country are engaged in this. It takes enormous amount of manpower to do this on a 24-7 basis.  It takes enormous amount of money to do this,” Coats explained.

These elite FBI teams are reserved for espionage, mob violence and high priority terrorism cases, like a joint terrorism task force case last June, where a 26 year old suspect Usaama Rahim, was killed outside a Massachusetts CVS.  When a police officer and FBI agent tried to question him, the Boston Police Commissioner said Rahim threatened them with a knife, and was shot dead.

With at least a dozen agents assigned to each case, providing 24/7 coverage, this high level of surveillance reflects the severe risk associated with suspects most likely to attempt copycat attacks after Paris.

“It is a big resource drain.  Yes it is.  Almost overwhelming,”  Coats said when asked about the demand placed on the FBI.   “There will be a lot of people over the Thanksgiving weekend that will not be enjoying turkey with their family.  They’ll be out there providing security for the American people and the threat is particularly high during this holiday period.”

One of the lessons of Paris is that the radicalization process can be swift.  According to published reports, friends of the female suspect who was killed in the siege of Saint Denis, Hasna Ait Boulahcen, abandoned her party life only a month before joining her cousin, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the plot’s on the ground commander.  He was also killed in the siege.

The FBI Director James Comey has consistently drawn attention to this phenomenon, calling it the “flash to bang,” that the time between radicalization and crossing the threshold to violent action can be very short. Last week, in a rare public appearance with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Comey would only say that “dozens” of suspected radicals have been under “tight surveillance.”

“Together we are watching people of concern using all of our lawful tools.  We will keep watching them and if we see something we will work to disrupt it,”  Comey said.

Contacted by Fox News, an FBI spokesman had no comment on the high risk cases, nor the use of elite surveillance teams.

Ohio: Clueless judge releases Muslim terror suspect on bond

Source: Bond issued for man, 40, accused of terrorist ties – Toledo Blade

Over the objections of federal prosecutors, a judge agreed Monday to release on bond one of four men charged with providing financial support to al-Qaeda.



Sultane Roome Salim, 40, of Columbus is to be released from the Lucas County jail once his mother posts a $500,000 property bond that includes her home and a commercial building in Cambridge, Ohio.

Judge James Knepp, U.S. District magistrate, ordered that Mr. Salim surrender his passport and be released to the of his mother, Shakila Salim, and his wife of nearly 15 years, Mehreen Sultan. Ms. Sultan, a citizen of Pakistan, also surrendered her passport and the passports of the couple’s three children.

Mr. Salim is charged with conspiracy to provide and conceal material support and resources to terrorists, providing material support and resources to terrorists, and conspiracy to obstruct justice. He was indicted by a federal grand jury in Toledo that also named his brother, Asif Ahmed Salim, 35, as well as Yahya Farooq Mohammad, 37, and Ibrahim Zubair Mohammad, 36.

Prosecutors allege the group conspired to travel to Yemen to give thousands of dollars to Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda leader who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.

Michael Tobin, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, said Asif Salim and Yahya Mohammad, both residents of the United Arab Emirates, were arrested overseas and flown to Virginia. Ibrahim Mohammad was arrested in Texas.

All three are being held behind bars awaiting transfer to Toledo.

Mr. Salim’s wife and his mother both took the witness stand at Monday’s detention hearing, assuring the court they would make certain Mr. Salim abided by the terms and conditions of his release and would contact authorities if he did not.

Under questioning by Christos Georgalis, an assistant U.S. attorney, Ms. Sultan said she knew nothing about the charges her husband faced, that she never heard him talk about working with his brother to provide funds to al-Qaeda, although she had heard him mention al-Awlaki in the past.

Judge Knepp told Ms. Sultan she would be in “a heckuva spot” if her husband violated the terms of his bond. She would be obligated to report him to the court, he said, and if she failed to do that, she could be charged with contempt of court and jailed.

“If that sounds scary, it should,” he told her.

Mr. Salim’s court-appointed attorney, Cherrefe Kadri, assured the court her client would comply.

This is a very well-educated man who has a lot of skills,” Ms. Kadri said, explaining that Mr. Salim is a chemical engineer who most recently worked as a financial analyst.

She said that since his arrest, he has been fired from his job and the family is being evicted from their apartment in Columbus. Ms. Kadri said he is willing to live with his mother in Cambridge where his wife and three children also plan to live.

Among the other conditions of bond, Judge Knepp ordered that Mr. Salim have no contact with his three co-defendants.

“I can’t imagine that a man would violate the terms and conditions and put his mom in that kind of peril, but above and beyond the property that your mother is posting, both she and the mother of your children are putting their very liberty at stake by undertaking this obligation,” Judge Knepp said.

“I can’t imagine that a man would subject his own mother or the mother of his children to some kind of peril in furtherance of his selfish interests no matter what may be guiding them,” he said.

Clearly the judge has no clue about Islam and how men regard their wives (plural) and children.

Reader Dee informs us that the attorney for the terror suspect is President of the executive committee of the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo. How convenient. We now have mosque executives representing Muslim terror suspects. If he were a member of CAIR, representing Muslim terrorists would be expected.

Also worth asking yet again, is why two of the Muslim terror suspects, both residents of the United Arab Emirates, who were arrested overseas were then flown to Virginia?

Why are we importing hard-core Muslim terrorists to the U.S.?

They will recruit and teach jihad in our prisons. They may never be deported and could be released on our streets. Sheer lunacy.

Oklahoma: CAIR Client Arrested as Part of ISIS Cell in Turkey

A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.

It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”

Long’s cause got international attention when Glenn Greenwald published an article at The Guardian saying that Long was “effectively exiled from his own country.” Kevin Drum of Mother Jones branded it the “Kafkaesque World of the No-Fly List.” CAIR has 22 article entries related to Long’s case on its website.

After several months of wrangling between his CAIR attorneys and the Department of Homeland Security, Long was temporarily removed from the no-fly list and allowed to return to Oklahoma.

Once home, however, he was still subject to FBI surveillance according to claims he made during a press conference with his CAIR handlers.

After an incident with local police and the FBI, Long was apparently placed back on the no-fly list, preventing his return to Qatar.

That prompted even more outrage from the far-Left media and garnered him an appearance with his CAIR handler on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show:

Glenn Greenwald used Saadiq Long’s MSNBC appearance to get back in on the action:

Eventually, Long boarded a bus to Mexico and got on a flight there to return home to Qatar.

U.S. and Turkish officials confirmed Long’s arrest to PJ Media, saying that he was arrested along with eight others operating along the Turkish-Syrian border. So far, no U.S. media outlet has reported on his arrest.

Long’s Facebook page has not been updated for several months. The last entry on his wife’s Facebook page was October 23.

I have emailed Long’s CAIR handler, Adam Soltani, asking for comment. An email to his attorney Gadeir Abbas was returned as undeliverable.

New York: Syrian leader says Muslim refugees “absolutely” sneak in posing as refugees (video)

via Syrian community leader: ISIS is already in America | New York Post

A leader of New York City’s Syrian community told The Post on Wednesday that ISIS terrorists have “absolutely” sneaked into America by posing as civil-war refugees — and joined sleeper cells just waiting to be activated.

“I believe the terrorists from Syria have been coming into the United States, not only in the past few years, but way before that,” said Aarafat “Ralph” Succar of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, home of the city’s largest enclave of Syrian immigrants. “I think they’re already at work.”

See Creeping Sharia’s post on the now Muslim enclave of Bay Ridge.

Succar, a member of the Bay Ridge Community Council, said corruption in his homeland is so rampant that anyone could easily pay bribes and obtain official identification papers bearing a fake name to disguise their real identity.

“You can go to the Syrian government today and say to them, ‘I need a piece of paper that says I’m Tony Caterpillar.’ And they give it to you,” he said.

“These are not forged documents. These are written out by a government employee who needs money, whose family has no food.”

Succar, 57, who immigrated to the United States when he was 10, also noted that “Third World countries, particularly places like Syria, do not have the network of information the United States has.”

“In Syria, there’s no such thing. So when they tell you that [the refugees] are vetted, are you out of your mind?” he said.

There’s another Syrian enclave in the U.S., and they don’t want Syrian refugees either, In Allentown’s Syrian community, a divide on refugees: (the divide: Muslims want them, no one else does)

A few days ago, a pastor asked Syrian-born restaurant owner Marie Jarrah to donate food to a welcoming event for recently arrived Syrian refugees. Jarrah, who said she regularly helps people in need, declined.

Like many of Allentown‘s establishment Syrians, she doesn’t think it’s a good idea to bring refugees to the city. She clung to that view even before last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris. “Problems are going to happen,” said Jarrah, co-owner of Damascus Restaurant in a heavily Syrian enclave.

Aziz Wehbey, an Allentown auto dealer and president of the American Amarian Syrian Charity Society, worries some Syrian refugees might have taken part in the fighting in Syria’s civil war and have “blood on their hands.”

“We need to know who we are welcoming in our society,” said Wehbey, who immigrated to the United States a quarter-century ago and became a citizen.

FBI Director: It’s ‘Impossible’ To Vet Every Single Syrian Refugee [VIDEO]

Terrorists Have Already Used Refugee Program to Settle in U.S.

But that doesn’t deter the psychopathic despot in the White House, via: ABC NewsTerrorists Once Used Refugee Program to Settle in US –

Of the 31 states that have declared their opposition to taking in Syrian refugees, one state, Kentucky, has a specific reason to be wary of the background check process: previously two Iraqi refugees who settled in Bowling Green turned out to be al Qaeda-linked terrorists with the blood of American soldiers on their hands, an ABC News investigation found. Both pleaded guilty to terror-connected charges after trying to acquire heavy weapons while in America’s heartland.

The 2013 ABC News investigation also revealed that several dozen other suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some who were believed to have targeted U.S. troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the U.S. as Iraq and Afghanistan War refugees, among the tens of thousands of innocent immigrants.

The Obama administration insists now that Syrian refugees are subjected to intense vetting before they’re allowed to settle in the U.S. and that a vast majority of the millions of refugees the U.S. has resettled since the 1970s are normal, peaceful people, but the program has had serious security problems before. In 2009, a flaw in background screening of Iraqi refugees allowed the two al Qaeda-linked terrorists to settle in Bowling Green and led to a temporary suspension of the refugee program, officials told ABC News in a 2013 investigation.

The two men, Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, were caught on surveillance video in 2010 in a storage locker in Kentucky handling heavy weapons, including a Russian-made machine gun and a Stinger missile launcher, which the FBI said the men thought would be smuggled to insurgents in Iraq.

An FBI agent assigned to the sting operation that eventually nabbed Alwan and Hammadi told ABC News for its original report that Alwan had bragged to an informant about killing American soldiers in Iraq.

“He said he had them ‘for lunch and dinner,'” FBI Louisville Supervisory Special Agent Tim Beam told ABC News in 2013.

In the wake of the Kentucky case, the U.S. halted the refugee program for Iraqis for six months, a fact the Obama administration did not disclose to Congress at the time, officials told ABC News in the 2013 investigation.

The U.S. takes in as many as 70,000 refugees from around the world every year – a vast majority of whom are never deemed national security threats — and the White House recently announced it plans to increase that to 100,000 per year by 2017.

Tuesday senior Obama administrations official defended the U.S. refugee program, saying those coming into the states are subjected to “the most rigorous screening and security vetting of any category of people entering the United States.”

Tweeting today, President Obama said, “We will provide refuge to at least 10,000 refugees fleeing violence in Syria over the next year after they pass the highest security checks. Here, our focus is giving safe haven to the most vulnerable Syrians – women, children, and survivors of torture. Slamming the door in the face of refugees would betray our deepest values. That’s not who we are. And it’s not what we’re going to do.”

Obama is not who we are. He is not American. He doesn’t hold any American value to be true. He is the greatest threat to American. He is our greatest enemy. But we know that because he warned us:

Missouri: Seven Muslims plead guilty in $1.7M food stamp fraud

via Two from Swansea get 7 years in prison for food stamp fraud : News

EAST ST. LOUIS • Two businessmen from Swansea were sentenced to seven years and one month in federal prison and ordered to repay nearly $1.7 million in fraud-related losses to the food stamp program, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

Qais Hussein, 43, and Majdi Odeh, 45, owners of two Garden Grill Market stores in East St. Louis, operated a conspiracy to buy food stamp benefits and Woman, Infant and Children vouchers from customers at some fraction of their face value, prosecutors said. That fraction was 50 to 60 percent for food stamps, they said. Hussein and Odeh, who are brothers, would also accept food stamp payments for ineligible items like tobacco, cellphones and purses, prosecutors said.

In addition to the prison time, the men were fined $12,500.

Hussein and Odeh pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to unlawfully acquire Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, aiding in the preparation of false tax returns and trafficking in counterfeit goods.

Prosecutors said that the brothers also helped prepare two false 2010 tax returns by under-reporting the income from the markets and sold fake watches, hats, DVDs and other items.

Five employees have also pleaded guilty to roles in the conspiracy and received sentences ranging from probation to the time one had already served in jail, in addition to fines and restitution.

Those employees are Hossam Ahmed, 25, of St. Louis, Alaa Jaber, 29, of Jersey City, N.J., Elsayed Hassan, 25, of East St. Louis, Rami Abou Amra, 37, of Troy, Ill., and Albraa Sabrah, 27, of Hazelwood, prosecutors said.

More via the DOJ:

This conspiracy allowed Hussein and Odeh to fraudulently receive over $1.6 million in electronic transfers to their bank accounts. The indictment also alleges that they filed false tax returns based upon the unreported fraudulent SNAP payments. Finally, the Grand Jury charged that both Hussein and Odeh in operating Garden Grill Market, II, Inc. illegally trafficked in counterfeit items from Casio, Major League Baseball, the Motion Picture Association, Prada, Coach, Fendi, Gucci and Juicy Couture.

Not mention of any of their citizenship status.

Muslim migrants to the U.S. don’t just pose a terror threat. Muslim food stamp fraud is a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Muslim Medicaid fraud is another.


Ohio: Muslim Arrested for Soliciting the Murder of U.S. Military Members

 He worked at the Arkon City Hospital. via Ohio Man Arrested for Soliciting the Murder of Members of the U.S. Military | OPA | Department of Justice

An Akron, Ohio, man was arrested today on federal charges that he solicited the murder of members of the U.S. military.

Terrence J. McNeil, 25, appeared in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Ohio after being charged with one count of solicitation of a crime of violence.

“According to the allegations in the complaint, Terrence McNeil solicited the murder of members of our military by disseminating ISIL’s violent rhetoric, circulating detailed U.S. military personnel information, and explicitly calling for the killing of American service members in their homes and communities,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.  “ISIL and its followers continue to use social media in an attempt to incite violence around the world, including in the United States.  The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism and we will use all of our tools to disrupt threats and acts of violence against our military members and their families.”

“As this nation honors our veterans, we must make clear that we will not tolerate threats of violence against our service members,” said U.S. Attorney Dettelbach.  “This defendant is charged with urging harm to our men and women in uniform and will now answer for those threats.”

“While we aggressively defend First Amendment rights, the individual arrested went far beyond free speech by reposting names and addresses of 100 U.S. service members, all with the intent to have them killed,” said Special Agent in Charge Anthony.  “We will remain vigilant in our efforts to stop those who wish to support these despicable acts.”

According to an affidavit filed in the case:

McNeil professed his support on social media on numerous occasions for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization.

On or about Sept. 24, 2015, using a Tumblr account, McNeil reblogged a file with the banner “Islamic State Hacking Division,” followed by “Target: United States Military” and “Leak: Addresses of 100 U.S. Military Personnel.”

The file type is a .gif file, which allows multiple still images to be looped in one file, with a timed delay between each image.  The text of the first file reads “O Brothers in America, know that the jihad against the crusaders is not limited to the lands of the Khilafah, it is a world-wide jihad and their war is not just a war against the Islamic State, it is a war against Islam…Know that it is wajib (translated to “necessary”) for you to kill these kuffar! and now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for? Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe…”

The file then loops several dozen photographs, purportedly of U.S. military personnel, along with their respective name, address and military branch.

The final image looped is a picture of a handgun and a knife with text that reads “…and kill them wherever you find them…”

McNeil Complaint

Just last week, 4 Muslims Arrested in Ohio for Supporting Jihad.

Huffpo and other traitorous rags would have you believe he was arrested merely for posting a gif image on social media. The fifth column runs deep. Here’s a few of the social media posts found online:

Attachment B in the criminal complaint suggests weapon, ammo and tactical gear were seized, among other things.
