An accused war criminal living in the United States is now working as a security guard at Dulles International Airport near Washington, DC.
A CNN investigation found that Yusuf Abdi Ali, who is accused of committing atrocities while he was a military commander during Somalia’s brutal civil war, has been living a quiet life near the nation’s capital for about 20 years.
He is just one of more than 1,000 accused war criminals living and working in the United States.
In a shallow pit in northern Somalia, forensic anthropologists have been delicately digging around battered bones that were recently found in numerous mass graves. They're the remains of a clan slaughtered during the war in the 1980s, alleged evidence of the brutality carried out by the government regime in power at the time.
As a result of CNN's investigation, Ali has been placed on administrative leave.
Ali's employer Master Security has a contract with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) to provide unarmed security services. Ali passed a "full, federally mandated vetting process" that included an FBI background check and a TSA assessment.However, when CNN initially asked Master Security about Ali, the company said it was "unaware of the pending litigation."In light of the "very serious nature of the allegations," Ali is on administrative leave, and the company is reviewing the case, according to Chief Executive Rick Cucina. Ali's airport access has also been withdrawn.
This is the same federal government that, according to the statists, can vet the refugees from Syria and keep ISIS and Al Queda from infiltrating.
