Dozens of Afghans evacuated in the final days of U.S. military presence in Afghanistan have been flagged over potential ties to the Taliban or other terror groups.
Two flagged Afghans were shipped to Kosovo to undergo stricter scrutiny, according to NBC News. The warnings come as U.S. officials are vetting tens of thousands of Afghans extracted from Afghanistan under the belief that the evacuees were at high-risk of retribution at the hands of the Taliban.
“A lot of people were moved very quickly and the intelligence community has been working hard to evaluate whether any of them pose a threat,” a senior federal law enforcement official told NBC News. “Some of the vetting occurs while they are overseas, and some of it occurs here … We are not going to allow people to intentionally be released into the community if they have unresolved derogatory information.”
According to NBC News:
Of more than 30,000 evacuees from Afghanistan to the U.S., about 10,000 needed additional screening as of Friday, said the sources, and of those about 100 were flagged for possible ties to the Taliban or terror groups. Two of those 100 raised enough concern for additional review.
Other evacuees who are currently being evaluated in the D.C. area were found to have been deported from the U.S. previously for past criminal offenses, said two sources briefed on the data. The Department of Homeland Security is now deciding what to do with the individuals.
Potential terror ties is just one of a variety of serious issues officials are now struggling to address with relocating tens of thousands of Afghans airlifted from Afghanistan. State Department officials are investigating “numerous” cases in which children were introduced as the “brides” of older Afghan men at processing centers in Wisconsin and the United Arab Emirates.
U.S. officials at processing centers in Wisconsin and the United Arab Emirates have reported “numerous incidents” of older men introducing sexually abused young girls as their “brides.” Officials at the centers are reportedly seeking “urgent guidance” from the State Department on how to handle the reports, according to the Associated Press.
“Intake staff at Fort McCoy reported multiple cases of minor females who presented as ‘married’ to adult Afghan men, as well as polygamous families,” one document sent by officials at a military base in Wisconsin and reviewed by the AP said. “Department of State has requested urgent guidance.”
Officials at the intake center in the United Arab Emirates reported instances of children claiming that they were forced to marry older men in return for evacuation from Afghanistan, officials familiar with the cable told the AP.
Such claims of child trafficking and sexual abuse are taken seriously, officials told the AP, but “are anecdotal and difficult to prove, particularly amid the crush of Afghan evacuees at multiple locations in the Middle East, Europe and the United States,” according to the outlet.
Gee...do you think that the prudent thing would have been to send them all to Diego Garcia or Gitmo for investigation and clearance, THEN shipping the certified safe ones to the USA?
There are many moslem countries in that area .. no need to fly them ( at great expense ) half way around the world, unless this is another jihad invasion like Hussein did.
Ready for more jihadists loving congress critters who hate America?
That would have been even smarter. Keep them in that sh!thole part of the world.
U.S. officials are looking for Trump supporters
TALIBAN: "HA HA SUCKAS!"
TALIBIDEN: "C'MON MAN.. WHAT TIME IS IT?"
Thanks Jihadi Joe...sneaking your murdering buddies into our country like a coyote...
For those dozens there are hundreds that got through...
Meanwhile Jihadi Joe abandoned more than dozens of American citizens in Afghanistan...
At Fort McCoy the “refugees” are allowed to just walk off base, according to a congressman from that area who was on Tucker’s show. The article makes it sound like they’re in custody in the base jail when in reality base officials told the congressman they have no authority to hold them. We are so screwed!
This is like doing open heart surgery on someone and then looking for possible heart disease.
They'll be back, but have to walk across the Mexican border. No problem Joe!
What is their plan for getting rid of the ones they even manage to determine are not genuine? Good luck sending them back to Afghanistan: the Taliban will just tell America to f-— off. America is stuck with these people, courtesy of resident Talibiden.
Pfffttt..... given the way these schmucks operate, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if they flagged Christians as terrorists to send them to certain death.
Such claims of child trafficking and sexual abuse are taken seriously, officials told the AP
Not so’s you’d notice.
Bout as seriously as treason and fraud
So our phony commie regime uses Kosovo to vet terrorists!!!!
Kosovo is Serbia!!!!
Give Kosovo back to Serbia, and keep the new batch of terrorists in Central Asia/Middle East!!!!
Why don’t the Governors of States who do not want Afghan terrorists refugees just deny landing permits. Many foreign countries do this. If the Pilot doesn’t have the correct permit number, they are not given clearance to land and must go to another country as an alternate.
The Taliban had complete control the entry gates and all around the airport. No one entered without their permission. This was the arrangement made by President Biden. Could their be any doubt that Americans and US visa holders were denied entrance, only Muslims whom they wanted passed through. There is no question in my mind that we just imported a small army of Islam.
Islam and practicing moslems are not compatible with civilization
Terror types walking off the base....
Can you imagine even one with a suicide bomb vest and 25lbs or more of high explosives at a symbolic building in DC or a high foot traffic area of Manhattan?
Or simply an Akbar shouter with rounds fired in every direction? Maybe angry over paperwork delay in 35 chain migration relatives coming over on welfare.
Where are they going to get the explosives. (I mean, besides Bagram).
