Monday, Feb. 27th 2012….FBI : Iraqi Used Car Dealer in Ky. terror case bragged about past. FBI Special Agent Chris Faber quoted 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi as saying he didn’t know how many explosives he had placed in Iraq because “By God I didn’t count them.” “I mean, I used to do two or three operations a day in Baghdad and I used to do every day in my neighborhood,” Hammadi said. Hammadi faced 12 charges, including perjury and attempting to send material support to a known terrorist organization. His trial is scheduled for July 30. Alwan pleaded guilty to 23 terrorism-related charges in December and is to be sentenced April 3. The search warrant, approved Jan. 25 and obtained by The Associated Press as a public record, gives details of recorded conversations between Hammadi, 30-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan and the confidential source from late 2009 through early summer 2011 in Bowling Green. Ba’ath Party members escaped to the USA as “refugees”.
The two Iraqi nationals who came to the US as refugees were arrested in Kentucky on charges that they conspired to provide money, weapons, and other support to Al Qaeda in Iraq, federal officials announced. Before he was granted refugee status in the U.S. and settled down in Bowling Green, Ky., Waad Ramadan Alwan was allegedly a sniper and skilled bomb maker who targeted U.S. forces and bragged that his “lunch and dinner would be an American.” Alwan is one of two Iraqi refugees who the Justice Department had been charged with participating in an alleged plot to send cash, explosives and Stinger missiles to Iraq for use against Americans. The men are among 56,000 Iraqis who took advantage of special programs to come to the United States after demonstrating they were in danger from Iraqi militias for their religious beliefs or because they were translators for U.S. government or media organizations. Alwan was admitted into the U.S. in 2009 even though his fingerprint was found in 2005 on an unexploded roadside bomb that was set to blow up a U.S. convoy in Iraq, according to court documents. His print was loaded into a Defense Department database. But when he applied for U.S. refugee status, a search of that database was not yet a part of the application process.
Waad Alwan said he was helping support insurgents in Iraq by smuggling weapons and money in used vehicles sent to Iraq. They were USED CAR DEALERS. Waad Alwan said that he worked for groups that received money from Osama bin Laden and was planning to send money and weapons to Al-qaeda in Iraq in secret compartments on cars. There is a network of Muslim used car dealers in the USA and abroad that facilitates the support of terrorism through the transport of used vehicles to the Middle East. Waad Alwan stated that he used to procure explosives and missiles while an insurgent in Iraq since at least 2003; that his insurgent group conducted strikes daily; and that he used IEDs in Iraq hundreds of times. At one point, Alwan allegedly drew diagrams of four types of IEDs for the CHS and provided verbal instructions on how to build these devices. He also discussed occasions in which he had used these types of IEDs against U.S. troops. Asked whether he had achieved results from these devices in Iraq, Waad Alwan said “Oh yes” that his attacks had “f–ked up” Hummers and also targeted Bradley fighting vehicles in Iraq (killing US servicemen).
