Terrorists in America: Who let them in?
The article is misleading because it says “that most of the people are U.S. citizens.” Well, they may have gained citizenship but when and how did this happen?

· 14 individuals provided money, personnel and services to al-Shabab terrorists
· Charged were Omar Shafik Hammami, 26, a former resident of Daphne, Ala., and Jehad Serwan Mostafa, 28, a former resident of San Diego. Both are U.S. citizens who are believed to be at large in Somalia.
· Holder said Hammami "has assumed an operational role" in al-Shabab and has made recruitment videos that have aroused concern at the FBI and in the Somali community in the United States
· Two indictments unsealed in Minnesota charge Amina Farah Ali, 33, and Hawo Mohamed Hassan, 63, with conspiracy to provide material support to al-Shabab. The two, both naturalized U.S. citizens and residents of Rochester, Minn., were arrested Thursday, the Justice Department announced.
Who let them in? Are they still working in Homeland Security?

The two officials, including a member of federal law enforcement, say most of the people are U.S. citizens, with some supporting the organization from the United States and others traveling to Somalia to do so.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in the investigation which is culminating Thursday in several indictments.”
