MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - For five months, Fox 9 has been investigating what appears to be rampant fraud in a massive state program. This fraud is suspected of costing Minnesota taxpayers as much as $100 million a year.
- some of that public money is ending up in the hands of terrorists.
SUITCASES FILLED WITH MONEY This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on. On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms. Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage. I talked to a couple of sources who had lived in that region and I said, 'If money is going to this Hawala do you think it is going to al Shabaab?'" said Kerns. "And he said, 'Oh definitely, that area is controlled by al Shabaab, and they control the Hawala there.' He said when the money arrives, whether it was intended for legitimate purposes or not, al Shabaab or other groups demand a cut. As Kerns dug deeper, he found that some of the individuals who were sending out tens of thousands of dollars worth of remittance payments happened to be on government assistance in this country. How could they possibly come up with such big bucks to transfer back home? follow story at: http://www.fox9.com/news/investigators/millions-of-dollars-in-suitcases-fly-out-of-msp-but-why

Were the money sniffing Dogs On Strike ?
“Diversity is our strength!”
I guess they’ll have to open up a bitcoin account and transfer the money that way.
But really, is this worse than 0bama transferring billions of Swiss francs and euros on pallets to Iran? It’s just on a smaller scale, so people are outraged.
Same source, related, from 5/15:
Damn, I thought this story was about illegals.
Thanks for saving me the time to look it up. I knew the story had come up a week or so ago..it’s still disgusting!
I know the average American IQ is 98, but for allowing this to happen we have to be the dumbest country on the face of the earth.
Dumber than the Somalis, that’s for sure.
It’s beyond disgusting. You’re welcome.
Deep Staters in collusion with local Muslim chieftains.
Yeah, but they vote Democrat, so its ok.
Minneapolis is occupied territory; _pieceful_religion_ is very large there. Obviously this suitcase money is part of their religion activities; ie., blowing things up, chopping with manchette and shooting infidels.
How much has John Kerry brought back from all his trips overseas? and what is Obama’s cut?
So the Minnesotan taxpayers are funding Somalian jihad? Hats off to them!
I guess you get what you vote for.
Imagine that. Who’d have thought invaders would take advantage of free government money.
TSA must be on break.
Piss poor, circuitous writing that has a hard time getting to the point.
The mainstay of a journalism major.
You have to read the entire article to have a chance of piecing it together.
I award an “F” .
And U.S. House of Representative Keith Ellison things this is a good idea.
Our money, with the tacit permission of the Minnesota authorities, who are beholden to the muzzies for votes.
It’s not illegal to take cash out of the country as long as you declare it.
