Al-Qaeda Terrorist Leader Arrested In Phoenix On Murder Charges

Published

on

Federal law enforcement officials arrested an alleged Al-Qaeda terrorist leader in Phoenix, Arizona, late this week on murder charges filed by the Iraqi government.

Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri, a 42-year-old Iraqi national was “wanted to stand trial in Iraq for two charges of premeditated murder committed in 2006 in Al-Fallujah,” the Department of Justice said in a statement.

An Iraqi judge issued an arrest warrant for Ahmed and subsequently requested Ahmed’s extradition from the United States.

“According to the information provided by the Government of Iraq in support of its extradition request, Ahmed served as the leader of a group of Al-Qaeda terrorists in Al-Fallujah, Iraq, which planned operations targeting Iraqi police,” the DOJ added. “Ahmed and other members of the Al-Qaeda group allegedly shot and killed a first lieutenant in the Fallujah Police Directorate and a police officer in the Fallujah Police Directorate, on or about June 1, 2006, and October 3, 2006, respectively.”

The DOJ noted that the decision to extradite him to Iraq will ultimately be made by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The DOJ statement did not mention when or how Ahmed entered the United States.

In other terrorism-related news, The New York Times reported on Friday that the United States took out another top terrorist in the Middle East.

“The officials expressed confidence that the Qaeda leader, Qassim al-Rimi, was killed in a January airstrike in Yemen but were awaiting confirmation before making a public announcement,” The New York Times reported. “If confirmed, his death could represent a significant blow to the Qaeda affiliate, which remains one of the most potent branches of the terrorist group. The Yemen branch, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has tried to attack the United States and Europe and is thought to still want to.”

The Times stated that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) appears to have been the entity responsible for taking out al-Rimi as military officials said that they were not aware of any strikes.

Also on Friday, the Trump administration announced that it added six new countries to the travel ban list due to those countries not meeting certain requirements that allow officials to screen individuals who from those countries.

In a statement, DHS outlined why the six countries were added to the list:

Burma: Burma has begun to engage with the United States on a variety of identity-management and information-sharing issues, but it does not comply with the established identity-management and information-sharing criteria assessed by the performance metrics.

Suspension of entry for Immigrants, except as Special Immigrants whose eligibility is based on having provided assistance to the U.S. Government.

Eritrea: Eritrea does not comply with the established identity-management and information-sharing criteria assessed by the performance metrics.

Suspension of entry for Immigrants, except as Special Immigrants whose eligibility is based on having provided assistance to the U.S. Government.

Kyrgyzstan: Kyrgyzstan does not comply with the established identity-management and information-sharing criteria assessed by the performance metrics.

Suspension of entry for Immigrants, except as Special Immigrants whose eligibility is based on having provided assistance to the U.S. Government.

Nigeria: Nigeria does not comply with the established identity-management and information-sharing criteria assessed by the performance metrics.

Suspension of entry for Immigrants, except as Special Immigrants whose eligibility is based on having provided assistance to the U.S. Government.

Sudan: Sudan generally does not comply with our identity management performance metrics and presents a high risk, relative to other countries in the world, of terrorist travel to the United States.

Suspension of entry for Diversity Immigrants, as described in section 203(c) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1153(c).

Tanzania: Tanzania does not comply with the established identity-management and information-sharing criteria assessed by the performance metrics.

Suspension of entry for Diversity Immigrants, as described in section 203(c) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1153(c).

Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf said, “The top responsibility of the President and the Department of Homeland Security is the safety and security of the American people, and these new vetting criteria accomplish that goal and are raising the bar for global security. It is logical and essential to thoroughly screen and vet everyone seeking to travel or immigrate to the United States. However, there are some countries from whom the U.S. does not receive the necessary information about its travelers and, as a result, pose a national security or public safety risk that warrants tailored travel restrictions.”

Wolf continued, “DHS has refined its robust security standards, including enhanced screening and vetting capabilities, that allow us to better identify terrorists and criminals attempting to enter the United States. These screening and vetting capabilities are most effective when foreign governments contribute to our ability to verify a traveler’s identity and assess whether they pose a national security or public safety risk. For a small number of countries that lack either the will or the capability to adhere to these criteria, certain travel restrictions have become necessary to mitigate potential threats. The new, additional restrictions are not blanket restrictions. These tailored restrictions will make the U.S. safer and more secure. And countries that make the necessary improvements will have their restrictions removed accordingly, as was done in 2018.”

    My best guess is that since 2008 brought Obama into the Oval Office,
    that’s how THIS Al-Qaeda Terrorist…was allowed into the U.S.A. and
    probably listed as a “Refugee”. From the Iraq charge, and warrant
    for extradition, at least the general term “refugee” was correct.
    Only, he was a “refugee” from lawful criminal/terrorist charges!!

    So they knew he was here, we knew he was here, and nothing was done about it? How many more of these terrorist are hiding out in our country that the government knows about and is doing nothing to get them out.

    …The DOJ statement did not mention when or how Ahmed entered the United States” …really?

    Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri was “allowed” to come into the USA by the CIA to be used as a pawn to get the Iraqi Government to relent, like us again, and let US forces remain in Iraq.

    Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri probable needs to thank ObamASS for getting into AMERICA. Although no info was given on how or when he came to AMERICA this is the type of person ObamASS would have helped.

    … “Trump administration announced that it added six new countries to the travel ban list.”

    Da List?? …Weak and laughable. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan …ARE NOT ON THE LIST!!!

    Tens of thousands of muslim RAPEfugees are STILL in the USA and Trump refuses to deport them.

    Trump is dangerously naive! 3 years wasted!

      No, he is waiting to get the hammer in place before he strikes. Stop and think. I know we have the Sealed Indictments, but we can’t get the oath breaking traitors into the courts because the courts are so corrupt…even the jury lists are 95% dem. Until there is enough evidence prepped to get them all to The Military Tribunals Courts…99% of them, if sent to trial in a civil court, would go free. That is a ”No No” for us. So, we shall have to wait until the time is right to take them all off at once. Perhaps a mass arrest, then take them all off to Gitmo or some other military Tribunal Court for trial??? (I understand there are 7 of them already set up — world wide)! The judges and jury are military officers. Military tribunals are distinct from a court-martial. A military tribunal is an inquisitorial system based on charges brought by military authorities, prosecuted by a military authority, judged by military officers, and sentenced by military officers against a member of an enemy army – (that means a traitor to the USA). Penalties are carried out rather quickly. I believe those working in government come under FEDERAL Law, do they not??
