Told Ya So: Bin Laden Docs Say “Seek Govt IDs, Licenses”

By Debbie Schlussel

Documents found in Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound confirm something I’ve long warned about–that Islamic terrorists and their minions continue to seek various government IDs and licenses to foment their operations, because it remains easy to do, thanks to our inaction and politically correct pandering.  I’ve written frequently about non-citizen Islamic terrorists seeking driver’s licenses, voter’s registration cards, HazMat hauling certificates (remember the mass Muslim cheating at trucking schools?) and other forms of identification which can be used in other countries–and far too often in the U.S.–to easily avoid closer scrutiny and move about freely.

Bin Laden Told Operatives to Get Western ID

As I’ve noted, U.S. voter cards were obtained–some of them illegally–by Islamic Jihad founder and frontman Sami Al-Arian and the various Islamic Jihad operatives he brought to Tampa, Florida, because they could use them as phony “U.S. citizen” identification in other countries.  Several in the Al-Arian gang voted illegally on several occasions and were allowed to do so even though they were not U.S. citizens and, thus, ineligible.  This is the result of Bill Clinton’s Motor Voter bill that went into law.  The law made it easier to obtain driver’s licenses and required Secretaries of State to automatically register the new licensees without bothering to check or ask about citizenship, much less verify it.  Reportedly, Bin Laden and his family paid for the expensive schooling of the Al-Arian kids at prestigious private universities, including Georgetown (where Abdullah Al-Arian was a Ph.D. student).  So, it should be no surprise that the Bin Ladens and the Al-Arians used the same playbook, a playbook they haven’t had to change since we not only haven’t been pro-active, but not even reactive to it.

U.S. intelligence analysts, poring over computer files and documents seized from Osama bin Laden’s Pakistani hideout, have started piecing together al Qaeda’s terror playbook, including new details about how the network sought to exploit security loopholes to sneak militants into the U.S. and Western countries. . . .

Seized documents show al Qaeda was looking at using international driving permits, which can be obtain with relative ease, to help sleeper cells obtain other forms of government-issued identification that would make it easier for them to travel, according to officials familiar with the matter.

It shouldn’t be news to anyone in law enforcement or the spy game, as these were long known loopholes and even the incompetent 9/11 Commission warned extensively about various IDs easily available here and how Islamic terrorists exploit them. Even on the silly “Brady Bunch,” the football team adjusted when it got a whiff of the other side’s playbook. But not us.

Since we’ve had at least ten years of federal law enforcement agencies who believe their main objective is to pander to and kiss Muslim ass (FBI = Forever Buttkissing Islam/Famous But Incompetent), it should be no surprise that they don’t know or bother with this basic law enforcement stuff. A good shawarmeh recipe for the Homeland Security and Justice Department Iftar dinners is far more of a priority.

Don’t count on the Bin Laden confirmation about Al-Qaeda seeking these IDs to result in any changes.  If 9/11 didn’t change that, nothing will.  It’s just a story the FBI and CIA report to the mainstream media to look like they are actually doing something . . . other than removing their shoes before their regular pander-fests with Muslims.

Bin Laden’s buddy, Sami Al-Arian, now has the only ID Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda weren’t seeking (although it provides great “in-house” opportunities for mass conversion to the cause) . . .

On Al-arian prison ID, says he’s “white”. Is that a typo? or are they doing this on purpose?
It would be difficult to pull data from their database to see how many Arabs are incarcerated.

Gino, if Arian were to be deemed “Arab” on that ID, not white, how would you have them categorize Jews who come from Arab lands? My father was a Syrian-born Jew, but he *never* considered himself an Arab.

The Real ID Act is another prime example of more bureaucratic red tape and federal control, which does absolutely nothing to make any law abiding citizen safer. PUL-leeeese. The federal government can’t perform their basic Constitutional duty to control our borders and enforce the Immigration laws of our nation. We need to kick all these bums out, both Republican and Democrat. Pay close attention. 2012 is not that far away.

Spot on Debbie, thanks

Yes, all this freedom to recieve as many ID’s and Passports et al’ allowing illegals to come into the country adnauseum, yet we still need more security at the airports and bus stations for you and I and 70 year old grandmas. The Patriot Act with all this other airport security is just a farce to get underneath your clothes in your suit cases to the bottoms of your feet, it has nothing to do with safety its a matter of taking away our freedom. Good Bye America we’re going to miss you. Say Hello to the new KGB when you’re on your way home from work when your car is pulled over to see if your papers are in order. Thats the success of Al-Qeada the reshaping of our way of life.

In their efforts to pander to illegal aliens in areas such as driver’s licenses, in state tuition, and public assistance, they have endangered others. What are a few dead bodies as long as I get reelected safely? Who cares if qualified legal residents or citizens are put on an eternal waiting list for Medicaid, as long as the right people get on it? There is a creeping venality and denationalization going on here.

I am surprised they haven’t hit the railroads here in the USA yet. I know of a rail yard in Michigan right now, with 30 loaded non-odorized propane tank cars in unguarded storage. One car exploding can make a 1/4 mile diameter crater. One car exploding can take off like a rocket, trailing burning propane one mile.

    @Dr. Dale

    El Paso, reported a signal construction crew advised there were five trailers stolen from Casa Grande, AZ between the
    dates of 2/25/2011 and 3/7/2011.

White is a color not a religion. I guess middle eastern would be a proper classification.

I never like the “motor-voter” registration from the beginning. Of course, I am an old curmudgeon who feels that if a citizen can’t get off his/her fat rump to register to vote, its no great loss. I don’t feel that their “forced” participation in democracy enhances the process or the outcome in a favorable direction.

Bin Laden is now split up in the bellies of about 10 sharks. This makes me happy.

We can also blame the laziness exhibited daily in our own Federal agencies who waived rules that got Mohamed Atta his visa.

It’s like we’re battling 2 enemies: one sworn to kill us and our own security agencies that are working with one eye open.
