A member of the Islamic State terrorist organization linked to the murder of an Iraqi police officer was arrested in Sacramento today, after it was revealed that he infiltrated the United States while claiming refugee status.
The Department of Justice announced that Omar Abdulsattar Ameen appeared before a federal judge on Wednesday, after the United States acted upon an extradition request filed by the government of Iraq in regards to the matter.
Ameen is accused of murdering an Iraqi police officer while acting in support of the Islamic State’s military operations shortly after the terrorist group seized the major Iraqi city of Mosul in 2014. The Iraqi request for extradition accuses Ameen of leading a convoy that arrived in the town of Rawah and assaulted the home of a police officer named Ishan Abdulhafiz Jasim, with Ameen personally executing the man after he was incapacitated in the attack.
Apparently he fled the country after participating in the murder. The Iraqi extradition documents also link Ameen to a lengthy list of terrorist activities both with ISIS and with its predecessor, Islamic State in Iraq, stretching back all the way to 2006. It’s possible, based upon the time frame of offenses committed by Ameen, that he participated in the insurgency against U.S military personnel who were present in the country at that time, especially considering Iraqi documents link him to utilizing and planting improvised explosive devices.
A memorandum released with the DOJ announcement describes Ameen as first applying for refugee status with the United States shortly after arriving in Turkey around April 2012(later returning to Iraq to commit the murder alleged in the extradition request), claiming that his father had been killed for cooperating with the American military.
In reality, his father, among many other members of his family, were involved with al-Qaeda in Iraq. This false claim would go on to serve as the basis for the acceptance of Ameen’s refugee status by the U.S government. Ameen first arrived in the United States in November 2014- just five months after committing a murder with ISIS.
If Ameen had secured permanent residence, it would mean a hardened and experienced terrorist would have free reign to plot further criminal actions against his unwitting hosts. A request for information on Ameen’s travels from the Republic of Iraq to the United States was sent to the Embassy of Iraq, and the story remains developing at this time.
President Trump Threatens to Veto Legislation Changing Names of Military Bases Named After Confederate Generals
The President cited the legacy of the bases.
President Donald Trump threatened to veto any edition of the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that requires the renaming of U.S. military bases named after Confederate Army generals. Democratic Senators, including Elizabeth Warren, are pushing a provision that will rename the facilities.
The President made it clear any NDAA that renames that bases won’t receive his signature. In a tweet, President Trump cited the legacy of the bases in America’s victory in the two World Wars of the twentieth century.
I will Veto the Defense Authorization Bill if the Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (of all people!) Amendment, which will lead to the renaming (plus other bad things!) of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E. Lee, and many other Military Bases from which we won Two World Wars, is in the Bill!

Republicans had declined to stand up against the drive to purge the names of iconic American military installations such as Fort Bragg and Fort Benning, with only populist conservative Josh Hawley offering opposition to the cultural cleansing attempt when it passed through the Democrat-controlled Senate Armed Services Committee.
Polling conducted on the matter reveals that a strong majority of the American public opposes purging the names of the bases from record because of their association with the Confederacy.
There are ten total U.S. Army bases named after Confederate military leaders, most of them located in the southern United States and named as such as a gesture of reconciliation to the South in the Reconstruction period and beyond.
