Immigration Agencies Ignored Dallas Muslim Terror Plotter’s Red Flags; The “Guybrow” Terrorist

By Debbie Schlussel

The federal criminal complaint filed yesterday against Dallas-area Muslim Jordanian (translation:  Palestinian) terror plotter, Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, is Exhibit A in failed immigration enforcement on the part of two Homeland Security agencies,  ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and CIS (Citizenship and Immigration Services).  Smadi is the 19-year-old who plotted to kill Christians and Jews and tried to blow up Dallas’ Fountain Place skyscraper. And both agencies apparently failed to stop this guy from entering and remaining here.

(BTW, check out girlie-man Smadi’s mug shot.  I warned you that Muslims in America were a big portion of the “Guybrow” contingent.)


GuyBrow Islamic Terrorist Hosam Smadi

When I read the criminal complaint (read it here), yesterday, I noted that Smadi has an “A number” or Alien Registration Number, a number assigned to all known aliens who enter the U.S. either when they enter the country legally  or when they are caught by ICE after being here illegally.  That number is linked to fingerprints and is meant to better track the aliens in our midst (though we really aren’t tracking them much, which is the problem).  Smadi’s A Number, in case you were wondering, is A097683198.

Yet Smadi had two instances that raise flags.  A new report, out today, reveals these disturbing details about illegal alien Smadi, which were ignored until after he was snagged:

Both Hosam and Hussein were in the U.S. on student visas they received in 2007, their father said.

Official Jordanian state records show that Hosam Smadi left Jordan for the U.S. in 2007 without giving any reason for his departure, Jordan’s Minister of State Nabil al-Sharif said.

Al-Sharif added that Hosam Smadi was arrested and charged in 2004 with theft and homelessness at the age of 14, but could not provide further details.

However, a judiciary official said Smadi was sentenced to 3 months in jail for a minor misdemeanor. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Why was Smadi, with a Jordanian criminal record, granted a student visa? Didn’t anyone at CIS check his criminal background with Jordanian authorities? Of course not because, as I’ve repeatedly noted on this site, CIS adjudicators are pressured and rewarded to go through applications for immigration benefits, like visas, very quickly. They spend less than six minutes per application on average. They didn’t take the time the Dallas Morning News did to check with Jordanian authorities.

Where was Smadi going to college at age 17 that he received a student visa? Did anyone at ICE check to see if he attended college here or whether he was still here if he wasn’t in school, in violation of that visa (which was apparently the case)? Of course not, because as I’ve also repeatedly noted on this site, ICE agents are pressured by ICE “leadership” (as as the case under “The ICE Princess,” Julie L. Myers) to close visa violator cases as quickly as possible, rather than find the alien and his/her whereabouts and whether or not they remain in the country. Neither the criminal complaint nor any reports identify his attendance at any U.S. college or university. (He missed out, because he’d find many allies there.)

Both of these factors clearly contributed to the continued illegal presence of alien Hosam Smadi on U.S. soil. We’re lucky the FBI caught him. But there are plenty like him they won’t catch.

Until it’s too late.

Oh, and by the way, if that isn’t bad enough, Smadi’s brother, Hussein, is here, too.  He was arrested in California in connection with this case.  Lucky us.  How many tens or hundreds of thousands more in our midst who haven’t been arrested?

People in this country claim that immigration is an economic issue. Too some extent that is true. However it is ultimately a National Security issue. Until the American people wake up and demand that our leaders protect us (and if they won’t then elect leaders who do) none of what Debbie writes is going to matter.

Unfortunately I am not very optimistic. The American people decided the last election based on economics (and got it wrong anyway) when any objective person aware of the facts would have made it a National Security election resulting in a different outcome.

Hopefully the work Debbie (and those who do the same thing) does in educating us will cause enough people to become active in demanding more from our leaders.

Where can I apply for Visa Czar… I’ll start tracking the baste*rds.

CJ on September 25, 2009 at 2:53 pm

Muzzies never fit in, do they?

And, the guy brow thing, just when you think muzzies can’t be any creepier, makes them MOST creepiest!

Do muzzies think guy browns make them “fit in”? They are donkeys.

Yes indeed you are correct. After all, without true national security; every other issue is pretty much moot.

I have very little faith in our government’s ability to protect us. The latest al-qaeda busts are the result of a few good government employees willing to do the job, with some good luck added in.

It’s been said that we get the government we deserve. Well, the majority of voters stupidly voted for Hussein Obama’s change, and because of their ignorant stupidity we now have the duffiest and most dangerous president in history.

Rocky on September 25, 2009 at 3:40 pm

Debbie. the federal government not only doesn’t know how many aliens (legal or illegal) are in the country, it makes no effort to track their status or apprehend when they break the law. There is no penalty for breaking the law other than deportation and even that can be held up for years by countless appeals to ICE tribunals. So how many Muslim jihadis are running loose around America?

No one knows.

NormanF on September 25, 2009 at 3:43 pm

    We can’t track terrorists, but we can keep track of cattle, from the time they’re born, where they’re shipped, when they die.

    Todd on October 1, 2009 at 12:32 pm

We know that if they are muzzies, they go to mosques, even the most depraved of them. Why don’t we target all mosques, profile these bastards and watch them closely. Station some ICE agents outside all mosques and do an ID check on all of these muzzies. Hell, Odopey wants to make Americorps where our nations youth perform community service. Why don’t we change that charter to have these kids perform a national service where they document the location of all mosques and take pictures of everyone that enters these mosques. Yeah, I know, this sounds a little like the Hitler Youth, but I would disagree with that assertion. What these kids would be doing is documenting people who would do our country harm, not peaceful people who just want the opportunity to exist.

Also, since we have jerks who target our special agents (CIA, FBI, …) by taking pictures of them and showing these pictures to our enemies, why can’t we do the same with the muzzies? You can bet your sweet ass that the gov’t, under O-stupid, will not prosecute those people who out our gov’t operatives.

Jarhead on September 25, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Debbie – it’s so friggin funny that you have pointed out this Guybrow thing. I’m LMFAO every time I see this. I live out here in the socialist lefty state of California, and I am going to start looking out for this, just to get a few laughs.

Jarhead on September 25, 2009 at 4:29 pm

I’m with you on this Debbie, been covering illegals for years.

My one problem with your story is that you jump to the conclusion, as a fact, that he was on a student visa and you stick with it. I have been digging for info on how he got here and there is no credible information that has been released as of yet. He could have jumped the border, come on student visa or possibly even through the “family plan” or a myriad of other ways (visa lottery).

Jumping to the student visa with no proof is just a little “off” for you who normally does a great job of sourcing.

D: Um, thanks for the insults and incorrect correction. But I jumped to no conclusions. If you bothered reading what I actually wrote, the Dallas Morning News/Associated Press quote above cites their father as saying they were here on student visas. I know actually clicking links to read the whole article I reference is too much rocket science for those who’d rather be lazy and attack me. This is what you call “digging”? Comical. I’ve now put the appropriate passage in bold for any future readers inclined to such laziness. I always do a great job of sourcing (and I do my own original investigation and reporting, something which you apparently discount with your comment). Clearly, you do not do a great job of reading, but you are excellent at jumping to your own incorrect conclusions in your rush to accuse me of jumping to conclusions and your rush to make incorrect corrections of my work. RIF–Reading Is Fundamental. We know who’s “off,” and it ain’t me. Clearly, your problem is with your own premature articulation, not with my work, as you claim. DS

Digger on September 25, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    “premature articulation” – LMFAO – good one Debbie!!

    Jarhead on September 25, 2009 at 5:41 pm

Did you ever see those outta control caterpillar eyebrows?

No wonder he opted for some guybrows.

Does this make me Raaaaaaaacist?

Sam Adams on September 25, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Damn, those are funny looking effeminate looking eyebrows! Some of the plotters were from Flushing, Queens and I hear stories of people leaving Friday night prayer services (nearby) all steamed up and angry looking. I am worried about what is being preached in the local mosques. This story is not finished – there is more to come out, I am sure and I have a feeling that there are several sleeper cells in NYC that would like to strike the subway system. It frightens me. We have a president who does not want to defend us.

JulieJ on September 25, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Maybe he got here by wearing a hijab and some eyeshadow. This tango looks like he could pull of the “Burka Hottie” look and sneak into the U.S.
Seriously…It is only a matter of time before one of these mutts actually slips through the crack and Americans get killed in another 9/11…then Obama will have to take ownership of letting it happen on his watch. It isn’t like we didn’t see it coming a looong way off (kinda like the Austin Powers gag with the steamroller and the guy screaming for 3 minutes instead of moving).

1MinuteMartyrMaker on September 25, 2009 at 5:28 pm

Debbie our Canadian politicians and “law enforcement” agencies are the same as yours – just recently we had about 5000 Tamals march down one of our busiest city streets here in TORONTO onto a MAJOR highway and our police (politicians) did absolutely dick! it was disgusting..i was ashamed and I shudder to think what these bastards and others are going to do in the future…..i can just see hordes of muzzies running up the CN TOWER yelling alah-akbar!!!…God help us all…

BIG IRISH on September 25, 2009 at 6:20 pm


I know from first hand experience that ICE and CIS have their own problems, but you leave out arguably the biggest problem in this entire situation: The State Department. They are the agency responsible for issuing the Visas that get these aliens here. Then, when the aliens get here, ICE is left to clean up the mess. Trust me, I see it every day. I mean, tell me, why would the State Department issue Visitor (B2) Visas to the people coming out of these American hating countries? Do they really think most of these people go home at the end of their stay (usually six months)? This is just one example, I have seen previously convicted, mentally disturbed and American hating individuals get Visas just because we need to issue “X” amount of Visas. And do not even get me started on the Diversity Visa (Lottery Visa). Again, everyone is to blame, but much of the flood starts with the State Department.

TRYINGTOMAKEADIFFERENCE on September 25, 2009 at 8:54 pm

So, what’s it going to take? Another 9/11 or worse?

Paul on September 26, 2009 at 8:58 am

Samdi was stopped by a cop for having his license plate light out on his car — and then it turns out he did not have a drivers license. Funny thing is on the video he was quiet fluent in English when trying to talk his way out of being arrested but demands a translator at court hearings. I will not be surprised that incarceration will totally remove his command of the English language to the point he will not understand any at all.

I am sure he was just breaking laws that Americas are too lazy to break.

Big Dave on September 26, 2009 at 12:27 pm

It is about time we quit trying to go after these koranimals in a law enforcement capacity, it ties up the system and law enforcements hands. We need to go after them in a comprehensive intelligence gathering and elimination proccess. That means identify and hunt down and eliminate. anything else is going to lead to a breakdown of our system of laws.

Drakken on September 26, 2009 at 12:40 pm


I agree. We should have a special agency just for speedy deportation purposes. Let them work with the FBI, NSA and ICE in exchanging intel and get them out of our country ASAP. There has to be a way to accurately identify these people and deport them. The gov’t should be able to issue ID cards to everyone, and those without proper ID get processed in a timely manner. I know this sounds a little like the USSR, Nazi Germany,… but there has to be a better system than we have now to regulate who has the lawful privilege of being in the U.S. Drakken – Do you want to exchange email addresses?

Jarhead on September 26, 2009 at 1:01 pm

Trying to get these agencies to work together is like herding cats, I know, I used to be one. They are tied up by byzintine rules, archaoic regs,inept and incompetent agency heads and SAC’s. who are more worried about their own careers and how they can make the next rug on the ladder, that is why I retired early in disgust!! I used to get hauled into the office once a week because I cooperated with other agencies and the SAC used to go nuts,especially when I renditioned a few muzzys for a proper interagation ahh the good ole days.
Jarhead, yeah send an address.

Drakken on September 26, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    Drakken – So who do you think is most effective in taking care of these scumbags? There has got to be a way we can exchange email addresses through a third party or something to make sure this is secure. Thoughts?

    Jarhead on September 26, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    Drakken – That’s gotta be frustrating to be handcuffed by stupid regs, probably initiated by the Clinton administration and the wall they put up. What morons. How about we try this. I’m sure we can figure out if we are who we say we are. email

    Jarhead on September 26, 2009 at 3:52 pm

While I am saddened that someone like this was able to enter our country post 9-11, I am not surprised. And frankly speaking our new White House administration under Barack Hussein Obama seems to be doing everything possible to weaken American and our allies and strengthen our enemies. His speech in Cairo to the Muslim people shocked me greatly.

M: The thing is, this guy came here and stayed under Bush, not Obama, and Bush did his fair share for the last eight years to weaken this country and our allies and strengthen our enemies, too. He embraced Muslims and increased their immigration to this country, as well as weakened immigration enforcement and terrorism financing investigations. We can thank him for this guy, Smadi. There is very little difference between Bush and Obama on these issues. Both were, are bad. DS

Mike on September 26, 2009 at 8:15 pm

Yes Debbie, way to go!! We have not had any President in quite a long time take a defiant stand against our enemies! We need someone with the intestinal fortitude to confront our enemies and stand them down – just like Reagan. Peace through strength, trust but verify.

Jarhead on September 27, 2009 at 3:11 am

one of my “pet peeves” is when the mooooslums (aka koranimals) come to America on a student visa to study veterinary science, they ARE NOT TRACKED and documented. they sliently switch majors (while shielded from scrutiny by the piglib academics), enter graduate programs in nuclear physics, gain access to naive and/or anti-American professors, learn their “real” techno-tradecraft from the feet of its creators, freely use and steal the latest American-made technology, make valuable new anti-American “foreign (CH, RS, IR, etc.) student” contacts, drink like fish, and pork ignorant cheerleaders – all while getting 100% subsidized.

watching but so what on September 27, 2009 at 10:01 am

All students when they enter legally are issued with and tracked in the Student and Exhange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) with an A number.

Federale on September 27, 2009 at 12:08 pm

A few details:

“In March 2007, Maher Smadi and his son met with Hana Elrabadi, a retired
Jordanian businessman and U.S. citizen who lives in San Jose, Calif.,
and was visiting his native Ajloun. “They wanted me to help him [Hosam]
get to the United States and help him find a new future,” Elrabadi said.

“Hosam already had a visa. His father had visited the U.S. several
times and said he wanted to return with his sons at some point.
He had gotten two five-year multi-entry visas for each of his sons to use
at the right opportunity.

“Hosam thought it would be a fresh start. I thought it would
be a fresh start,” Maher Smadi said. “Leave everything behind.
Maybe it will help him.”

“On April 15, 2007, the father drove his son to the airport.
Just before his son boarded the airplane, the father gave him a hug.
“I was very happy,” he said….

He said he warned Hosam that the U.S. offered many opportunities —
but also trouble if he wasn’t careful. After a month and half, he gave
his guest an ultimatum: “Listen, Hosam,” Elrabadi recalls telling him.
“You have to leave my house.”

Hosam moved into an apartment with some other young men, said Elrabadi,
who quickly lost contact with his former house guest.

Hosam’s brother, Husein. came to visit for the summer and never left.
Maher Smadi said Husein told him he would live with his brother and attend
high school in Santa Clara, Calif. The father wired his sons money every
month to help with their living expenses….

The last week of April of this year, Maher Smadi flew to Dallas to see
his son. During the 10-day visit, Maher Smadi noticed a change in Hosam…. “I was really afraid. It was a big change,” Maher Smadi said. “I was thinking, ‘What’s happening to you?’…. Maher Smadi told his son to come back to Jordan, but Hosam wanted to stay in the U.S. to get his green card. The father thought about
reporting Hosam’s behavior to Jordanian intelligence officials.


In Jordan, one doesn’t casually report one’s son to the secret police. Just what did his son say that spooked him? Did he tell his dad what he was planning to do? He didn’t worry much about Americans who might die, or so it seems.

Note, the Ikhwan are now on the case. “The Freedom’s Committee of the Islamic Action Front (IAF) [[Jordan’s MB party]] announced that it had formed a team of lawyers to communicate with international organizations in regards to the legal proceedings in Smadi’s case.”

john on September 22, 2011 at 7:19 pm

What happened to the link in this paragraph? Also, where is mention of this individual ‘Hana Elrabadi’ in the article?

“Yet Smadi had two instances that raise flags. A ‘NEW REPORT’, out today, reveals these disturbing details about illegal alien Smadi, which were ignored until after he was snagged:

Immigration Agencies Ignored Dallas Muslim Terror Plotter’s ……/dallas-muslim-terror-plotter-excellent-exam...
Sep 25, 2009 – “In March 2007, Maher Smadi and his son met with Hana Elrabadi, … get to the United States and help him find a new future,” Elrabadi said.
