While we often cite the 3,000 victims of Islamic terrorists on 9/11, we usually forget that one of their victims may have included the murdered DMV employee who helped the hijackers obtain fake IDs. We know that several Middle Eastern Muslim men paid Katherine Smith, a Memphis DMV worker to provide fake Tennessee driver’s licenses. Supposedly, she sold fake IDs to five of the 9/11 hijackers. We also know that her body was found burned to death in her car, after it had been doused by gasoline, on an empty stretch of highway. Her murder was never solved, and it’s believed that she was eliminated before she had a chance to finger anyone (perhaps someone helping the 9/11 hijackers) and before she could testify at the trial of another Muslim man who’d paid her for fake identification. Now, there is Khalif Abdullah Ali, devout Muslim and former Pennsylvania DMV supervisor who is, unfortunately, still with us.
Ali provided fake IDs to third parties. Pennsylvania authorities aren’t telling us who those third parties are. Take a guess why not. Oh, and by the way, they don’t even know the identities of everyone with Mr. Ali’s fraudulently obtained driver’s licenses.
A former supervisor at the driver’s license center in Malvern was convicted this week for creating authentic driver’s licenses for wanted fugitives, according to the Chester County District Attorney’s Office.
Khalif Abdullah Ali, 44, was convicted on charges of identity theft, tampering with public records, computer trespass, and related charges. Ali was arrested last March for working with wanted criminals to help them obtain driver’s licenses using identity information of other members of the public. . . .
One of the criminals who obtained a license from Ali was caught and testified against him at trial, but other licenses that Ali created are still unaccounted for. According to a criminal complaint filed by state police, the investigation began in August 2011 after an unnamed victim received a duplicate driver’s license with someone else’s photo displayed. Pennsylvania Department of Transportation records showed the driver’s license had been modified by someone in the Malvern licensing center in May 2010.
Investigators then used facial recognition software to identify an additional license that had been modified to show the face of the same imposter. Both counterfeit licenses were obtained from the Malvern center, police said.
The imposter, who is not named in the complaint, was arrested by state police and sentenced to 2 to 5 years in prison, according to the complaint. However, he never told investigators how he obtained the licenses.
In response, PennDOT conducted an audit of both transactions that led to the counterfeit licenses. It was determined that the employee responsible for the forgeries never accessed state databases to verify the identity of the individual obtaining the licenses.
In November 2011, state police investigators were contacted by PennDOT officials who had obtained surveillance video from the Malvern licensing center that showed Ali distributing information from a PennDOT database to two men identified by police as Frank Smith Jr. and Tairek Thomas.
Police said the surveillance footage showed Ali manipulating state records at multiple coworkers’ desks to provide camera cards for the two men, allowing them to obtain driver’s licenses with their own photos but with someone else’s identity.
If you think that Khalif Abdullah Ali–and before him, Katherine Smith–are the only DMV employees giving away legitimate licenses to illegitimate individuals, think again. There are plenty more where they came from, perpetrating the same fraud and endangering America’s national security.
Good luck with that.
