Three Convicted in Terror-Related Cases Later Granted U.S. Citizenship by Obama Administration

Three people convicted of crimes as a result of a terrorism-related investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) were later naturalized as U.S. citizens by the Obama administration, according to federal auditors.

The March 2011 audit (released on April 21, 2011) by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), entitled Criminal Alien Statistics:

Information on Incarcerations, Arrests and Costs, shows that three individuals were among “defendants where the investigation involved an identified link to international terrorism but they were charged with violating other statutes [not directly related to terrorism], including fraud, immigration, drugs, false statements, and general conspiracy charges,” referred by DOJ as Category II terrorism-related cases.

The three individuals in question can be found in a DOJ list of unsealed terrorism-related investigations conducted from Sept. 11, 2001 through Mar. 18, 2010. There are 403 defendants on that list of which, according to the GAO, at least 43 percent were aliens — both legal (26 percent) and illegal (17 percent) — at the time they were charged with crimes

“Prosecuting terror-related targets using Category II offenses and others is often an effective method--and sometimes the only available method--of deterring and disrupting potential terrorist planning and support activities,” explained the DOJ in the document that listed the defendants.

Staff members of GAO's Homeland Security and Justice team who worked on the audit told in an e-mail that the three individuals were naturalized as U.S. citizens under President Barack Obama.

Wild Thing's comment........

It's 3 am and nobody's there!

It is treason and aiding and abetting terrorists yet again for Obama and his administration .

If a republican can’t beat Obama in 2012 with all this ammo, then there really is no hope for America!

We need someone that speaks out for us and for our country, someone that loves America. Someone like Sarah Palin or Allen West would be awesome.

Well if I remember right, McCain wouldn't attack obama, afterall, McCain said, "he's just like you and me just a different view." So if we are going to beat obama, we'd better get a candidate that has a 24/7 attack mode and can destroy obama.

I agree Mark, we need an attack dog who will not give up no matter what. It also has to be someone who won't be intimidated during a one on one debate with the lil 1/2 white dictator. I see Allan West as that man.

Sarah Palin, Allen West, John Bolton, Liz Cheney. There are some good potential candidates. Sadly, the only ones we are hearing about are the tired old Rino flunkies Mitt, Huck and Newt.

Mark, I hope and pray that is the kind of candidate we will get.
