Vetting the Unvettable

by John D. Guandolo

As America is faced with the total collapse of Afghanistan and the U.S. government’s malfeasance in responding to it, the question of Afghan refugees coming to America is a real security issue for state and local governments as well as citizens across the nation.

2 questions:

  1. How can American citizens trust the government with properly vetting people from any nation when the U.S. government has a track record of abject failure specific to this task?
  2. How do you vet people who cannot be positively identified by true name and date of birth?

The U.S. Government’s Track Record in “Vetting”

Abdurahman Alamoudi was an Al Qaeda financier who, in 2004, was sentenced to 21 years in federal prison. Yet, Alamoudi served as the Islamic advisor to President Clinton and as a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the U.S. State Department, worked with the Department of Education, and created the Muslim Chaplain Program for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Alamoudi was an immigrant from Eritrea and was given the green light by the State Department, the Secret Service and the FBI.

Perhaps the vetting process is broken.

Between 2003 and 2014 Gulmurod Khalimov participated in 5 U.S. State Department sponsored training programs, including weapons and tactics training. Why is this a problem? Khalimov was a senior ISIS commander upon whom the U.S. government put a $3 million bounty.

The State Department defended themselves by explaining, “All appropriate Leahy vetting was undertaken in advance of this training.”

Perhaps the vetting process is broken.

How Well Will the U.S. government Vet Refugees from Afghanistan?

Those who served honorably with U.S. troops and/or as a part of the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan who renounce sharia and adopt American principles for their lives should be given an opportunity to come to America.

Direct testimony is needed by those who served with the individual “refugees” because people from Afghanistan are rarely capable of passing a true background check. This is because there is often no way to confirm the individuals true name or simple identifiers like a date of birth.

For security reasons, the question of how the United States will vet people from certain countries must be answered before admitting anyone from those countries.

This is the reason that in 2016 Understanding the Threat recommended Mr. Trump suspend all immigration into the United States for 3-5 years until the U.S. could produce a viable vetting process for immigrants from many of the nations openly hostile to the U.S., limit the points of entry to one per coast, and standardize security, health, and skills screening.

State Level Vetting

If the federal government demonstrates – as it has – it is incapable of vetting people coming into America, refugees or otherwise, how will states vet them?

Russell Smith, the CEO of Refugee Services of Texas issued a press release on August 16, 2021 stating Texas is prepared to receive hundreds of refugees from Afghanistan.

The press release also states: “All Afghans who have applied for Special Immigrant Visas (SIV’s) will undergo security background checks and health screenings.”

How will Texas vet these people? UTT reached out to Mr. Smith, but as of the time of publishing this article we have not received any feedback.

If the United States federal government is not capable of creating a vetting process to keep Al Qaeda and ISIS leaders out of America, how well do you think they are doing vetting refugees from Afghanistan?

  1. I saw this news of the US bringing in people that most likely ( prayfully not ) but because of language, alone stick closely to their group. And I knew instinctively, we are going to probably bring in more uncertainty. I see other countries actually being ” invaded” and are labeling it refugee’s. Again, I see more than the other want to admit.

  2. When your American government can’t identify the doctrine Isis quotes,due to Islamic sharia law, that forbids knowledge of it’s ties to terror, comitted by Isis,nor explain what they live by , sharia law, this explains the actions of a president and military learders profound problem. Obama once said America is the largest muslim country in the world, we now know what the plan was to fundamentally change America. This knowledge that Isis, taliban, al queda, etc all fight together and against each other we know the extreme danger and all in the leftist/ marxist/Islamist have to decieve the marxist, we get a President that allows open borders, and returns Afghanistan men who would not fight the Taliban.taking over the country…. because they could not fight if they were Islamic but authorities carry the party line, that these people are peaceful. We just had the final phase of normal living after not haviing a President at least would close the border against Isis etc…..and no wall that the leftist found racist. Every 24 hours it is just devastating seeing that we are being invaded and this is how isis/ alqueda took over the U.S. They run their country differently but terror is their skill, while pretending to be refugees who may or may not drop away from the doctrine. After 9/11 before and after and no one mentions this disaster for American people to come i fear. Who will save our “humanitarian crisis “a possible war on America”…after the invasion…once here it multiplies as it is in Europe.

  3. In 2020 Globalists, Democrats, RINOs, Communists, Jihadists & Foreign & Domestic Enemies Waged War On The U.S. People and The U.S.A. In Their Rampantly Lawless Terrorist 2020 Election Coup & In Their Criminal Terrorist Usurpation and Seizure of U.S. Gov’t Power.

      TO ALL HUMANITY

      • Zinc / Zinc Ionophore approach inhibits RNA dependent RNA polymerase (RDRP)

      • RDRP is essential for some RNA viruses such as:

      • all the Corona virus strains
      • all the influenza strains
      • RSV

      Zinc Ionophores include:

      • Hydroxychloroquine
      • Ivermectin
      • Quercetin
      • EGCG

      We can potentially cure all Corona, Influenza, and RSV infections with a safe, cheap, and oral treatment approach.

      This is why the Globalists, Pharmaceutical industry, tyrants, despots, and devolved pagans are opposing this is approach.

      It undermines their agenda, profits, and the use of fear as a weapon.

      We must resist and sacrifice at all costs and win the war for God consciousness and freedom from tyranny.

      “Our nation stands at the crossroads of history and we face a very serious decision point in the life of our nation, The United States of America. If We The People don’t step up and place demands on ALL elected officials to discover the truth of this last election (3 NOV, 2020), we may never have another free and fair election for any elected office again.

      This is not a political party issue, this is an American issue. Free and fair elections represent the essence of [our Constitutional Republic] and many thousands of Americans have fought and died for us all to be free and able to vote as equals… one person, one vote. All of us in living legally in the United States of America are created equal in the eyes of God. 🙏🏻🇺🇸”

        God created the world based on opposites. Good v. Evil. Heaven v. hell. God v. devil.

        The devil wanted to be God. He lost that one!!! God has ALL the power and is the Sovereign Creator of everything.

        God created the devil, Lucifer.

        God is real.
        The devil is real.

        So the devil, Lucifer, uses the “opposites approach” to deceive you. The devil is the deceiver of deceivers. He calls himself the prince of light but he is the prince of darkness.

        Now you understand why we have traitors disguised as Patriots.

        Why we have law breakers disguised as law enforcers.

        We must ALL pray for discernment to know TRUTH from lies.

        “But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”
        – Jude 1:17-21

  8. All,

    Calm down. And, provide specific solutions. Assess the situation, and implement your plan to correct the situation. Everyone is all over the place.

    • Unvetted Muslim Jihadi Terrorists are Invading the U.S.A. Now. Unless They are Rounded Up and Captured, They Will Wage Not Only Civilization Jihad War on the U.S. People Daily, They Will Also Wage Gruesome Tactical Jihad War using Captured High Tech U.S. Weapons on the U.S. People in Many Cities and Towns in the U.S.A., and Seek to Overthrow the U.S. Gov’t, Force Sharia Law on the U.S.A., and Attempt to Genocide ALL Non-Muslim U.S. People Who Refuse to Obey Islam’s Totalitarian Terrorist Sharia Gov’t Laws in the U.S.A.

  15. The Afghans I have run into in Colorado would never have been vetted by me. So the short answer is that they won’t be vetted and will join the ranks of the thousands of Muslim who attend Saudi financed mosques where they will finance international terrorism with their Zakat at a minimum and get enlisted into jihadi cells in the worst case. Any Afghan whose first loyalty is to Islam and the ummah should not be allowed to enter the US. Of course asking them won’t do much good, they will tell interviewers what they want to hear.

  16. The all knowing so-called expert political critics will say it’s equality/cultural appreciation and that anything against it is xenophobic, white-supremacy, racist, islamaphobic, and the rest. Definitely equality/cultural appreciation when a truck drives into a crowd and a guy starts shouting “allah akbar” stabbing anyone in the vicinity. They did say the biggest threat were pro-lifers after all. But I wouldn’t say everyone in the Saudis are traitors, as Prince Salman owes America and Trump his life ever since the Las Vegas 2017 incident from the corrupted Prince Alwaleed.

  20. Biden team wanted the first planes out of Kabul airport full of Afgan citizens not US citizens or SIV afgan allies.
    This was done for propaganda. There was a sent number of evacuees then all cut off.

    The suicide bomber was tracked and timed to the gate and US superiors knew the explosion time within an hour. The soldiers should have been pulled back to a safe position.

    Us military was given the option of control of the city of Kabul but gave it to the Taliban. The Taliban beat up passport and siv holders at the check points.

    The US citizens and siv holders that did get to the gates were refused entry.

    The US state department would not let Christians into the Kabul airport.

    When Biden was elected, the Taliban knew it was time to advance. Biden let the Taliban advance, made the government of Afganistan collapse, immediate get the military out leave equipment, US citizens, SIV holders, allies to fend for themselves, people of no concern, then the thought of evacuating the embassy in Kabul and redeploying 6000 soldiers to Kabul airport for a show evacuation, a world power surrender to the Taliban/islamic jihadis.

    Biden administration has advanced islamic terror and control more than any islamic attack.

    President Trump had an honorable afganistan plan. Southern border plan. So many plans that were good for all Amercans. We miss him so much. We need him so much. We need a congress like him so much. It will take years to undo the Biden damage.
