Last year, President Joe Biden’s federal agencies knowingly resettled nearly 400 Afghans across the country who were classified as “potential threats to national security,” according to a whistleblower.
Following the withdrawal of the U.S. armed forces from Afghanistan in August 2021, Biden opened up a refugee and parole pipeline that would allow tens of thousands of Afghans to quickly enter American communities without prior screening or in-person interviews.
With help from congressional Republicans and Democrats, Biden has resettled more than 85,000 Afghans in 46 states since mid-August 2021 and plans to resettle tens of thousands more this year.
Now, a whistleblower has come forward to claim that Biden’s agency has not only acknowledged to the United States that hundreds of Afghans they know are listed as national security threats, but also urged staff to cut corners in the review process.
The allegations were disclosed in a letter from Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) to the Department of Defense Inspector General.them wrote:
We’re writing to you about new allegations made by a Department of Defense (DoD) whistleblower. This information could suggest that the Biden administration’s failure to vet those evacuated from Afghanistan is even worse than the public thinks. The following allegations require immediate investigation by your office. [Emphasis added]
A patriotic whistleblower paints a darker picture. According to new allegations, 324 people evacuated from Afghanistan were allowed into the United States despite their presence on the Department of Defense’s Biometrics Watch List (BEWL). BEWL – commonly known as “Watch List” –Identify individuals whose biometrics have been collected by analysts and determined to be a threat or potential threat to national security, including known suspected terrorists (KSTs). A further 65 persons reportedly entered the country without adequate screening. [Emphasis added]
also, Whistleblower claims political appointees at National Security Council (NSC) and Defense Department directed agency staff to take shortcuts in handling Afghan evacuees A staging base in Europe, also known as “Water Lilies”.According to whistleblower Instead of fingerprinting all ten fingers, staff were told to shorten their tests to facilitate an emergency evacuation from Afghanistan. [Emphasis added]
Finally, it is said that The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) tasked with vetting Afghan evacuees has been authorized to delete old biometric data, whenever they personally feel that such information is out of date. This is a disturbing development that could threaten national security and public safety. [Emphasis added]
The new charges come after a Department of Defense (DOD) inspector general report showed that Biden’s agency failed to properly vet Afghans arriving in the United States. The report states that as of November 2021, 50 Afghans have been flagged as “major security concerns” for “major security concerns.”
Most of the Afghans flagged for possible terrorism ties, uncensored, have disappeared inside the country, the report said. Of the 31 Afghans flagged for security concerns as of September 17, 2021, only three have been found, the report states.
Likewise, a recent Project Veritas report said the Biden administration resettled Afghans in American communities who were placed on the federal government’s “terrorism watch list.”
A few months ago, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Rob Portman (R-OH) and James Inhofe (R-OK) revealed that Biden’s agency still refuses to pass The Department of Defense’s “tactical database”, despite warnings that many may be linked to terrorism.
Hawley and Johnson asked the Biden administration to detail how many Afghans have resettled in the United States, matching identities in the federal government’s “watch list” database, including how many Afghans are considered suspected terrorists.
Even for Afghans who have not yet resettled in the United States, Biden has authorized his agency to cut back on the vetting process. In June, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) unexpectedly announced that Afghans who “provided … limited material support” to terrorist groups are still eligible for resettlement in American communities.
