A Saudi Arabian national living in Oklahoma pled guilty to visa fraud in federal court last week, having lied to federal authorities about his attendance at an al-Qaeda terrorist training camp in Afghanistan in 2000.
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) press release announced that Naif Abdulaziz M. Alfallaj had pled guilty to charges of visa fraud and lying to an FBI agent. Alfallaj had been arrested back in February after a lengthy national security investigation. Alfallaj’s fingerprints had been identified on an application to al-Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan recovered by the U.S military, known as ‘al-Farooq.’ An emergency contact listed on the application was traced back to Alfallaj’s father in Saudi Arabia.
Alfallaj stated on the application that he wanted to be “a mujahid for the sake of God.” The charges against Alfallaj place him at the terrorist training camp in September of 2000, where he would have trained in the use of firearms, explosives and chemical weapons. The camp, located outside of Kandahar, Afghanistan, was where some of the 9/11 hijackers underwent training.
Alfallaj’s apparent Islamist views don’t seem to have prevented him from going through a legal process to enter the United States on a nonimmigrant visa, eligible on the basis of his wife’s application for a student visa. A DOJ press release described Alfallaj as “having answered several questions on his visa application falsely,”
Alfallaj also made an application to a flight school in the United States, incurring another criminal charge on the basis of using his fraudulently-obtained nonimmigrant visa to do so.
Between the charges of lying to the FBI and visa fraud, Alfallaj faces up to 18 years of prison and $250,000 in fines. He will be sentenced in 90 days, and already agreed to an order of removal from the United States as a stipulation of his guilty plea.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
