CIA says Al-Shabaab has close ties with Yemen based Al-Qaeda
Washington (Sunatimes) The CIA has announced that Yemen based Al-Qaeda has closer ties with Al-Shabaab militias in Somalia.So, how many "refugees" from Somalia have been allowed to enter the United States? Anyone have a number - a guess? It would be a good precautionary measure if Rep. King investigated the numbers of Muslim "refugees" entering the U.S. from countries producing Islamic extremists. To-date, the government hasn't been able to keep track, nor does Immigration Services since 9/11 appear to have a handle on the numbers of "refugees" entering America. Strange, don't you think, considering we're still at war, dropping bombs in Yemen, Libya to fight Islamic terrorism?
