Wolves Among Us? – Suspected ISIS Member Arrested in US for Murder in Iraq
A suspected ISIS member, Omar Ameen, was arrested in the US for the murder of a police officer in Rawah, Iraq back in 2014. He was arrested in Sacramento, California. No surprise there. He came in to the US as a “refugee” after the murder. The arrest was to have him extradited to Iraq.
He’s been living in Sacramento. Think about it.
The Justice Department stated in a press release:
“The Iraqi arrest warrant and extradition request allege that after the town of Rawah, Iraq fell to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) on June 21, 2014, Ameen entered the town with a caravan of ISIS vehicles and drove to the house of the victim, who had served as an officer in the Rawah Police Department. On the evening of June 22, 2014, after the caravan arrived at the victim’s house, Ameen and other members of the convoy allegedly opened fire on the victim. Ameen then allegedly fired his weapon at the victim while the victim was on the ground, killing him.
Ameen, originally of Rawah, in the Anbar province of Iraq, fled Iraq following the alleged murder, and later settled in Sacramento as a purported refugee. It is alleged that Ameen’s family supported and assisted the installation of al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) in Rawah, and that Ameen was a member of AQI and ISIS. It is also alleged that he participated in various activities in support of those terrorist organizations, including helping to plant improvised explosive devices, and committing the murder that is the subject of the extradition request. Ameen concealed his membership in those terrorist groups when he applied for refugee status, and later when he applied for a green card in the United States.”
The Justice Department sought an arrest warrant based on a treaty with Iraq for the extradition of criminals. The Iraqi warrant was issued in May, but Ameen was arrested on Wednesday after the US judge issued the warrant of extradition. ICE and the FBI worked together with the State Department on the investigations.
We have long suspected that there were terrorists among the “refugees.” How many more are there living here who were not vetted under the Obama administration? Everything from sleeper cells to individuals, there are wolves among us.
