MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - 

He was the second known American killed while fighting for ISIS in Syria, and the second from Minnesota -- and a Fox 9 exclusive uncovering his employment history is raising a few eyebrows.

An airport is probably the last place anyone would want a suspected terrorist to work, but before he died overseas, that's exactly what Abdirahmaan Muhumed did in the Twin Cities. In fact, he may have cleaned your plane at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Before he died, Muhumed left behind a trail of selfies and questions. Who recruited him to join the terror group, and how did he support himself and 9 children by several different women? Multiple sources tell Fox 9 News that, for a time, he worked at a job that gave him security clearance at the airport, access to the tarmac and unfettered access to planes.

Two former employees confirmed working with Muhumed at Delta Global Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delta Airlines. Earlier this year, the cleaning contract was taken over by another company, Airserv. The Metropolitan Airports Commission is in charge of granting security clearances, but a MAC person told Fox 9 News they could not comment on what Muhumed's were due to the ongoing FBI investigation. Instead, they offered to check with Homeland Security to see if they can release any information at all.

It's unclear how long Muhumed worked at DGS, or when exactly he left the Twin Cities to fight with ISIS. He died in the same battle as Douglas McCain, who was also from Minnesota. Authorities estimate that as many as 15 men and one woman have left the metro to fight with the terror group.

Meanwhile, ISIS is making no secret of the propaganda value it gets from foreign fighters, many of whom are featured prominently on social media. Just last month, ISIS posted pictures of its flag in front of the White House and Chicago's Old Republic building, along with the haunting statement: "We are in your state, we are in your cities, we are in your streets."

The question for investigators now may be whether or not they are working at our airports as well; however, it is important to note that Muhumed did not have any criminal history in Minnesota that would have prohibited him from working at the airport. There are also different levels of security clearance there, and it's unknown exactly what level he had.

President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday.

“[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the transfer,” the GAO report said. “In addition, because DOD used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for that purpose, DOD violated the Antideficiency Act. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from incurring obligations exceeding an amount available in an appropriation.

Detroit judge recuses himself from Palestinian woman's terror case
By Niraj Warikoo



A federal judge in Detroit reversed course and recused himself Tuesday from handling the case of a Palestinian-American woman accused by Israel in the 1969 bombing of a supermarket in Jerusalem, saying his family had a financial tie to the supermarket chain.

 

In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Paul Borman said that “at the time of the 1969 bombing, my family had a passive financial investment connection to SuperSol,” the supermarket in Jerusalem that Rasmieh Odeh of Chicago is accused of bombing in 1969, killing two people.

She faces immigration charges in Detroit, where she first entered the U.S., for not disclosing that she was convicted in an Israeli court of terrorism.

Defense attorneys for Odeh, 67, had argued that Borman should recuse himself because he “is a lifelong active supporter, fund-raiser and promoter of the State of Israel” who had given money to pro-Israel groups, including the Jewish Federation of Metro Detroit.

New Jersey Muslim Flying ISIS Flag Says He is a Patriotic American
By Daniel Greenfield

The media predictably falls for it. I’m not even going to link to the Jessica Remo piece at NJ.com which is the same “It’s all Islamophobia” spin that we’ve been hearing since September 11.

A New Jersey man has raised a flag that is causing concern among his neighbors.

The man recently hung what some neighbors called an ISIS flag outside his home in Garwood. When a picture was posted onto Twitter, neighbors on Winslow Place called the police.

The flag, which is used by an Islamic extremist group responsible for violence in Iraq, has since been removed from display. Even so, neighbors still wonder why the flag was there to begin with.
