Congressman Knew About Islamic Terrorist, Did Nothing, Now Grandstands After Terrorist Attack

By Debbie Schlussel

Recently, I told you about Abdullatif Ali Aldosary, an Islamic terrorist and Iraqi immigrant who bombed an Arizona Social Security office. As I noted, agents who raided his home found all kinds of recipes for explosives and a cache of supplies and weapons hidden in Aldosary’s home. Well, now, it’s come to light that the man’s own Congressman was aware that Aldosary was an Islamic terrorist who was roaming the streets of his district and did nothing about it. Now that Congressman, Republican Paul Gosar, is using Aldosary’s terrorist attack–which he could have helped stop–to grandstand.


Congressman Paul Gosar (Left) Stood By as Islamic Terrorist Abdullatif Aldosary Roamed the Streets for Over a Year

Paul Gosar learned well over a year ago that Aldosary was an Islamic terrorist. Aldosary is one of his constituents and asked the Congressman to inquire from Homeland Security why Aldosary’s attempts to get a green card and legal permanent residence in the U.S. were denied. Homeland Security responded that Aldosary is an Islamic terrorist and, therefore, was denied the green card.

You’d think that upon learning that, a U.S. Congressman would raise hell and ask why an Islamic terrorist is roaming the streets of his district, why the person isn’t being deported or at least detained awaiting deportation. You’d think Congressman Gosar would have made a big deal about this. But you would be wrong. In fact, Gosar said nothing and did nothing. Crickets chirping from the Congressman and his office . . . until now. Until AFTER an explosion that could have killed countless people. Yup, now, after a year of sitting back and collecting his Congressional paycheck and benefits exceeding $200,000 per year, Republican Congressman Paul Gosar is suddenly “interested” in national security and the safety of his constituents. He sent out a grandstanding letter to the Department of Homeland Security–and sent a copy to all members of the press, asking why Aldosary wasn’t monitored and so on.

Those are, indeed, the proper questions to be asking both to Homeland Security . . . and to the man Paul Gosar sees in his mirror. Homeland Security should have deported this guy. They should have detained him. And at the very least, they should have monitored his activities, especially since he was already convicted of a violent crime, prior to his terrorist attack. But Paul Gosar should have insisted on it and held the fire to the agency’s feet. He did none of that. Instead, upon learning that one of his own constituents is an Islamic terrorist freely going about his business, Gosar put that information in his circular file. The explosion at the Casa Grande, Arizona Social Security office could have resulted in the murders of countless people. We’re lucky that wasn’t the result. But if it had been, Paul Gosar would have blood on his hands. He should be ashamed and apologize to his constituents, instead of sending out publicity-seeking press releases and letters over a year too late. It’s simply arrogant and phony, not to mention hypocritical.


An Arizona congressman is asking federal officials why the man suspected of detonating a bomb outside the Arizona Social Security Administration office in Casa Grande was allowed to live in Arizona despite being classified a person who had engaged in “terrorism-related activity.”

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-AZ, sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Wednesday with specific questions about the status of 47-year-old Abdullatif Ali Aldosary. . . .

Aldosary had approached Gosar’s office with a request for a “green card” and in November 2011, Gosar forwarded that request to immigration officials.

Gosar said DHS responded by saying Aldosary was not eligible for a permanent change to citizenship “pursuant to the terrorism-related grounds of inadmissibility, and that “individuals who engage in terrorism-related activity … are barred from receiving various immigration benefits.”

DHS did not elaborate on what the activity was. Gosar wrote that to be barred from permanent status, under federal law the immigrant must have engaged in activity “indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily injury, a terrorist activity; to prepare or plan a terrorist activity; to gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity” or belong to “a terrorist organization” among other actions.

When CBS5 reached out to DHS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Amber Cargile responded, “Mr. Aldosary has an adjustment of status petition currently pending with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services after a previous denial of legal permanent resident status due to his participation in an uprising against Iraqi government forces in Basra in March 1991, during the Gulf War.”

In light of the Casa Grande bombing, Gosar questioned why Aldosary was not detained and processed for deportation in November 2011, after it was determined he had engaged in terrorism-related activity.

Again, why didn’t Gosar ask this question in November 2011, when he first became aware of it?

Gosar also asked what efforts were made to track and monitor “a known terrorist.”

I repeat: why didn’t Gosar ask this question in November 2011, when he first became aware of it?

The Nov. 30 bombing happened about a block away from Gosar’s office.

“But for the grace of God, no one was injured in the bombing,” he wrote.

Again, tell it to your mirror, Paul.

The problem is that is all Republican congressmen and Senators do for the most part…grandstand. They talk tough about the economy, the deficit, spending programs, terrorism, but when push comes to shove, they have the backbones of marshmellows. The Dems ideology is G-d awful, but at least they walk the walk. They support open borders and communism, and they vote that way. The Republicans say all of good things we want to here, but when push comes to shove, they support…open borders and communism (Who do you think supported most social programs? Yup, the so-called Republicans..Food Stamps, 8a Housing, increased welfare, immigration amnesty, prescription drug benefits all supported by Republicans).

There are No Trumans, Ikes, or Reagans anymore. Our country is in the grips of the laws of political entropy.

    The tragedy here is that the democrats have succeeded in implementing Hitler’s Youth concept that when you have the youth, you have control over the county.

    By allowing stupidity in schools in both student performance and curriciulum (have you looked at what passes for University classes lately?), we are surrounded by STUPID VOTERS WHO THINK GOVT GIVES THEM HEALTH CARE. They aren’t smart enough to figure out having health “insurance” doesn’t translate to having a health care provider.

    In true spirit, they will vote once again for the politician seen as having given them “something.” The truth is they steal from others, hardworking taxpaying citizens, using that money to “buy idiot votes” that place and keep them in office.

    Heil Obama!

    As goes, so goes... on December 10, 2012 at 1:28 pm

It’s time to go to war against these so-called “Conservatives” that are soft on jihad. Especially after Nov 6th. It’s on! We have nothing to lose and lots to gain by calling out these idiots and doing what we can to expose them and remove them from office.

Everyone is loving Justin Amash (one of the so-called “Conservatives” Boehner kicked out because he wants namby-pamby Liberal deceptiCons) but those who come here know that DS has exposed him as anti-Israel and votes for funding Hamas. (Please look in her archives…I did once saw his name and had my memory refreshed by one of DS’ columns).

Now the NYC subway killer is exposed as a devote Moooooslim. Not news to me. I saw his photo in the Brit papers days ago, saw his weird beard and name…and because I come her to learn I knew he was Moooooslim. This site is useful and important!

Skunky on December 10, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    Skunky, even by Obama Administration standards, this man’s prior felony conviction should have led to deportation after the completion of his sentence. Aldosary was dumb enough to actually inquire into his status at Congressman Gosar’s office. This was a rare second chance to grab the guy that was not acted upon.

    Worry01 on December 10, 2012 at 3:55 pm

      That’s right Worry. That terrorist should have been detained and then deported back in November 2011 & you’re correct…the DHS KNEW of his jihadist background and did NOTHING. Thank you manly slob Manet Napolitano. (She is a useless POS and we are allllll supposed to kiss her lezbo ass because she got appointed to a job she clearly is not competent to do…the only thing I like about that fraud is I like listening to her manly voice when she is free to be the boy she thinks she is and when she has to narrate something for the Gubmint and all of the sudden her voice becomes a tic more feminine. It’s a fun parlour game!).

      Sean R., you got it correct on that fraud Amash. It’s disgusting. And of course he isn’t Mooooooslim. That’s another handy thing we have learned here…the disgusting dhimmitude of Christian Arabs. What kind of world is this that you have Jews who have a soft-spot for Fakestinians and Islamists and Arabs who are NOT Moooslim BUT still bow to the twisted satanists? It’s shocking and still annoys me more than anything.

      Skunky on December 10, 2012 at 7:25 pm

This is just a wild guess, but MAYBE that terrorist is an intelligence resource for one or more of the federal and/or state alphabet agencies?

The bombing, having no casualties, might have been a deliberately organized ruse to establish and/or reinforce anti-American credibility among the Muslim community.

Such a scenario could possibly explain why nobody is talking about or discussing this issue.

John Robert Mallernee on December 10, 2012 at 1:02 pm

What do you expect from someone who is buddies with Jihad Darrell:

I_AM_ME on December 10, 2012 at 2:07 pm

To me, this Congressman Paul Gosar should be impeached for this, regardless if that Iraqi-muslim bombed the building in Arizona or failed to do his goal, Gosar should step down since he was aware of this man’s suspicious and nefarious motives.

I_AM_ME, thanks for giving out the link about this Gosar guy, since he’s butt-plug pals with Darrell Issa, it doesn’t surprise me even more, we all know that Issa is a quasi apologist for islamic-fundamentalisim (even though he’s an arab-christian of Lebanese lineage).

And Skunky, lately some of my conservative friends on facebook have been singing and kissing Justin Amash’s buttocks, there not aware of his stance regarding Israel, where he voted some bills against Israel and has yes secretly funded hamas (and Mr. Amash to is an arab-christian but of Palestinian lineage) over seas in Gaza & the West Bank, etc. More and more folks on the right have to figure out some of the candidates who they like and/or shilling for, and not just bid for the politican because there’s an “R” next to his or her name!

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on December 10, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Can’t wait for Debbie’s multi-part takedown of Sheldon “I’m basically a social liberal” Adelson and his impact on GOP immigration panderers.

Or is Adelson still on the good-guy list?

CK: Were you among those who called for Adelson’s over $100 million in donations to the Romney campaign and other GOP campaigns and PACs across the country not to be accepted? If it weren’t for that mega money, the GOP wouldn’t have had a campaign for any office. I don’t agree with his positions on those issues, but I’m not sure what that has to do with the price of tea in China on this issue or how you back your claim that he’s behind the GOP immigration-panderers (he clearly didn’t give a dime to Israel-hater, Islam-ass-kisser, and amnesty supporter Rand Paul). But, hey, nice attack on the Jews, you anti-Semite. DS

CK on December 10, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    Yessir, thanks to CK’s incisive comment, we now know the reason that Gosar didn’t do anything a year ago. It was the Jews’ fault, specifically Sheldon Adelson. Maybe he engaged in mind control. But CK doesn’t need to worry about that, not having a mind.

    Sometimes I wonder what goes through the ‘minds’ of these nitwits, just like I sometimes wonder what it would be like to think like a dog or cat.

    Little Al on December 10, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Maybe he knew that any attempt to have DHS do ANYTHING more re this mullet was futile…, O.K., he’s just another dime-a-dozen, big-talking Repub. Sad.

WilliamMunny on December 10, 2012 at 6:13 pm

none of them care a rats ass for this country and homeland security is to busy looking at us to care if a few terrorists kill a few tax payers because there are always more of don’t expect crappy nappy to do the job it was hired for do you?it us she does not like especially the male watch and see that the republicans will go along with every thing bongo does.

bruce on December 10, 2012 at 6:47 pm

This is a poorly reasoned and poorly researched post. Gosar was awarded the Defender of Israel award in 2011. He sponsored a successful amendment prohibiting U.S. military or other aid to any country affiliated with the Muslim brotherhood. To accuse him of sympathy for Muslim terrorists is beyond acceptable.

The author ignores the fact that a multi billion dollar agency in charge of monitoring terrorists and immigration deemed Aldosary safe to remain. DHS issued a statement that the TRIG status was erroneous and told Gosar this. In short, Gosar inquired to the agency in charge and was told Aldosary was ok. After Aldosry bombed the building Gosar pressed DHS again. It bears noting Congressmen can’t order deportations. Contrary to the authors misplaced innuendo. Gosar is a solid member. But with friends like you …

Allen Seitz on December 11, 2012 at 1:52 am

Well Mr. Seitz (not sure whether you are from Gosar’s office or from DHS — quite possibly the latter), but being so well informed, it might help if you learn how to spell Aldosary’s name right. The use of bureaucratic acronyms such as TRIG further identifies this person as a governmental flak.

Duh, if there was a successful amendment to prohibit US aid to countries affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, why are we not only giving aid to Egypt, but increasing it exponentially, as well as even giving billions more through the IMF?

Defender of Israel? These phony awards are a dime a dozen — look at all the phony awards Obama, one of the biggest foes of Israel has gotten, but all kinds of accolades from Jewish sycophants.

Duh, a multi-billion dollar agency. If Seitz had bothered to check the archives of this blog, he would be aware of all the transgressions of homeland security DHS has committed, and its cluelessness in multitudes of security situations.

And even if DHS had said Aldosary was OK, any politically competent person knows that the Government passes on all kinds of terrorists. Any reasonably competent person knows that Muslim terrorists have infiltrated all branches of national and local government, so to take an alleged statement that someone is “OK” at face value suggests naivete and opportunism, exactly the point of this post.

And the demagogy about Gosar being unable to order deportations? No one said he could, but the post suggested, quite properly, that Gosar could have put pressure on the Government, had he chosen to do so. But this type of obfuscation is what we have learned to expect from Government personnel that have made compromise (I should really say concession or surrender) after compromise to the terrorists. Are you really stupid enough to challenge this assertion?

    Great post Little Al! THAT is how you do it! Thank you!

    Skunky on December 11, 2012 at 10:16 am

Wow, another shameless politowhore, imagine that …
He’ll make a good real estate agent or mortgage loan officer someday …

2 years ago 198000 illigals made it into the usa and most stayed the politicians are weak and useless

martin on December 11, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Most important question or questions that needs answers: 1) Why was this Abdullatif character allowed to enter the US? 2) Why is Abdullatif character still in the US and not deported back to his lovely country of Iraq? Especially if he was denied a permanent resident status. I to this day still do not understand our (USA) immigration status especially when it comes to dangerous SOBS like this. I was in China a few months back and believe me if you stay beyond what your visa allows you to stay, you will be locked up, pay a hefty fine and finding yourself on a flight back home. Seems we in the USA have this melting pot mentality by getting hit by that pot too many times in leftist hands. Just incredidble that this guy is allowed in and made no bones to hide himeslf. Imagine the real wicked that have nefarious plans that make every effort to cover their tracks, those are the ones I am afraid of.

Mario on December 11, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Also…I read that Abdullatif had upwards of $19k in the bank. How? And he owned a house too?
