In January the FBI arrested Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri in Phoenix, Arizona after a warrant was issued for his arrest. Al-Nouri was an Al Qaeda leader in Iraq and was on the run for the murder of Iraqi police officers in Al-Fallujah.
"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. 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 Department of Justice released in a statement.
Despite his fugitive status and role as a leader for Al Qaeda, Al-Nouri was admitted to the United States in 2008 as a refugee. He then went on to become an American citizen. Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst want to know why.
"Please explain the vetting process through which Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri received a refugee visa. Was Ahmed Al-Nouri ever subjected to additional screening associated with the refugee visa application? Was Ahmed Al-Nouri vetted through the Visa Security Program and was a Security Advisory Opinion ever requested and/or issued?" Grassley and Ernst wrote in a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this week. "Did Ahmed Al-Nouri ever apply for any other U.S. visa before being granted a refugee visa? Did Ahmed Al-Nouri apply for visas using any aliases?"
The Senators also want to know when Al-Nouri came to the attention of the FBI, considering he lived in the United States for more than a decade.
The Iraqi government is requesting he be extradited in order to stand trial for murder.
How did a Kenyan from Indonesia become President of the United States Of America?

This one really is Bush’s fault.
admitted to the United States in 2008 as a refugee.
Not this time.....
He got in the US as a refugee under Bush but became a US citizen under the Obama State Dept.
75 Syrian families were allowed into Reno a couple of years back. Not like the had any more say than those in Phoenix.
George W. Bush was president when Ahmed first entered the country. Remember, Bush said that Islam is peace. So why not let murderous - yet peaceful - Islamists in?
Again, how did a Kenyan from Indonesia become President in direct violation of the Constitution?
How many others are there??
That’s way off subject for this article, FRiend.

If we had not had an ineligible enemy agent in the White House, many bad things that have happened wouldn’t have.
it’s just like hunting, if you find one, there’s more.
Because no one high up in government wanted to challenge his citizenship and specifically whether he was a natural born citizen for fear of being publicly smeared as a racist and the very real possibility of loss of status, position and employment. The smearing is done by powerful Democrats as their way of retaining power.
Very good point, I’d bet many more than anyone would believe.
Both Bush’s are TRASH.
Because Howard Dean DID NOT do his proper job of vetting Obama...
Then PELOSI vouched for him to be on the California Ballot.
Both of them need to be prosecuted.
Obama needs to be in Gitmo.
The smearing was also done by Republicans that had their own stable of ineligibles they wanted to run.
Jindal, Rubio, Cruz, Haley and most importantly, George P. Bush.
