A tip of the chapeau to Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch for sending us this story. Here is a dangerous scam prosecuted by the US Attorney in Kansas City, Missouri involving a cabal of Bosnians and Somalis and a commercial drivers school getting false commercial drivers licenses to these brothers in the ummah to hustle semi-trailers down the Interstate carrying what? So, what was Muslim Brothers and Sisters Trucking doing with these fraudulent driving licenses? Were they shipping AK-47’s as we posted on a story out in Fort Wayne, Indiana or perhaps Khat, a class A drug favored by Somali Muslims in several different cities in the US or perhaps counterfeit brand name clothes to sell on the black market and cop the profits to send home to Muslim charities fomenting terrorist groups? Who knows? Is this the ground version of those civilian pilot training schools that the 9/11 perpetrators attended here in the US? Worthy of an investigation if the FBI had its head screwed on properly.
Just Look at the list of those indicted in this Kansas City report and make up your own scenario.
Co-defendant Abdulfatah Osman Farah, 26, a citizen of Somalia living in Kansas City, pleaded guilty on Dec. 10, 2007. Farah admitted that he obtained a CDL after testing at SCCC on Dec. 28, 2004. According to the plea agreement, May administered the CDL driving test. While Farah took two of the three portions of the driving test, White drove the tractor-trailer in order to assist Farah in successfully completing the last portion of the driving test. May then certified that Farah had passed his driving test, and sent a copy of the certifying document to the Missouri Department of Revenue. Afterward, Farah assisted White in taking students to SCCC in order to obtain a CDL in the same way. On several occasions, Farah simulated a driving test with May’s assistance, in order to help those students pass the CDL test.
Co-defendant Ahmed Muhidin Sharif, 29, a citizen of Somalia living in Kansas City, pleaded guilty on Nov. 9, 2007. Sharif assisted White by transporting students from Muslim Brothers and Sisters truck driving school to SCCC, knowing that May would fraudulently administer the competency tests. Sharif made about 15 trips in which he transported 70 to 80 students of Somali descent to West Plains in order to fraudulently obtain CDLs. Sharif knew that the tests were being fraudulently administered by May, and observed May give incomplete or inadequate CDL driving tests to the students.
Co-defendant Abdiwahab Mohamud Mohamed, 39, a citizen of Somalia living in Minneapolis, Minn., pleaded guilty on Oct. 31, 2007. Mohamed, who had fraudulently obtained a CDL after purportedly testing at SCCC, directed students from the state of Minnesota to SCCC in order to obtain fraudulent CDLs. Mohamed was directed to White by an acquaintance in Minnesota who informed him that White’s school would only cost $800, as opposed to the $5,000 for a legitimate CDL school in Minnesota. White took Mohamed to SCCC, where he was tested by May. Mohamed, who had never driven a tractor-trailer prior to traveling to West Plains, drove a tractor-trailer around the parking lot at SCCC for 10 minutes. Normally the CDL test takes two hours to complete.

ou will be outraged by this story! Ponder it as you zip along a busy highway in your little hybrid surrounded by 16-wheelers traveling at 60 plus miles an hour, and thank ever-watchful blulitespecial for tipping us all off to this story.
Muslim Brothers and Sisters Trucking is (was) made up of drivers hailing from Somalia and Bosnia (our refugee program supplying labor for jobs Americans won’t do?) who were never qualified to drive a big rig thanks to this scam busted by the US Attorneys Office in Missouri.
A former superintendent of a truck driving school in West Plains pleaded guilty in federal court today to his role in a scheme that provided fraudulent commercial driver’s licenses to large numbers of Somali and Bosnian nationals, said John F. Wood, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri.
Read the whole story here. It is a detailed anatomy of a scam of major proportion. Some of those busted are going to prison, but you can bet they never caught all those students who are now spread throughout the US driving a rig on the highway next to you.
And then there is the larger question, what is in those tractor trailers?
