Yep!! Lynn is at it again.... Creating those limitations without any basis in fact! Guess again Lynn! But no matter what Lynn Thomas writes about anyone that she has no clue to because Lynn has been at least consistently wrong since the get-go. Just like it does not matter about Jack Idema. Jack will spend the rest of his time in jail then face the music when he comes back! That's a fact JACK! But more about Jack in the news in a bit!
What is important to Lynn Thomas is that her cross is just starting to get heavy. Today we can confirm that a complaint was filed last week with the United States Capitol Police regarding Lynn Thomas and her malcontent blogger buddies, especially SSgt Yatahey and Lynn's Treason Contest. We can confirm that the USCP is investigating the death threats against a sitting United States Senator....John Kerry (D) Massachusetts as posted on Cao's Blog and as propelled by Lynn Thomas. While Ms. Thomas has a First Amendment right she does not have the right to post hate and make or propel threats. We can also now confirm that the Allstate Insurance Company has also been notified and is also investigating. Sources close to this investigation have also told us that a predominate national anti-hate legal center also now has Lynn Thomas and Wideawakes on their radar.... Besides that we are informed that Lynn is going to have some local legal entanglements shortly.
Lynn... here is our advise ... time to get a lawyer....LOL! Hope this motivates you further....
Now Junior Cape Crusaders.... Jack Idema back in the NEWS!
At least the mainstream press gets it right! "
The investigation by ICE, the FBI, DEA, and IRS revealed that Alocozy’s business had been utilized by Jack Idema, the former Green Beret-turned bounty hunter who is currently imprisoned in Afghanistan for allegedly torturing Afghan civilians."
Time is coming to pay Jackbo!
On Friday, May 20, Rahim Bariek, 46, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Afghanistan and resident of Herndon, Virginia, pleaded guilty in Alexandria to operating an unlicensed money transmittal business that wired millions of dollars to Iran, Pakistan, and areas in Afghanistan under the control of the Taliban between 2001 and 2003.
On November 14, 2001, roughly two months after the 9/11 attacks, Bariek testified before the U.S. Senate about how important it was for “hawaladars” like himself to abide by federal laws governing such businesses. Those who skirt the rules “give all hawala a bad name,” he testified. A subsequent ICE probe revealed that Bariek was operating an illegal money transmittal firm in Virginia that illegally wired $4.9 million to Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Bariek was given a maximum five-year sentence when he sentenced on July 29, 2005.
On Friday, May 20, Noor Alocozy, 41, a native of Afghanistan native living in San Francisco, pleaded guilty to federal charges of operating an unlicensed money transmittal business that funneled nearly $1 million to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and elsewhere. The investigation by ICE, the FBI, DEA, and IRS revealed that Alocozy’s business had been utilized by Jack Idema, the former Green Beret-turned bounty hunter who is currently imprisoned in Afghanistan for allegedly torturing Afghan civilians. During the investigation, Alocozy provided ICE investigators with copies of business ledgers indicating that Idema used Alocozy’s business to send funds from the U.S. to Afghanistan, presumably in support of his quest to capture Osama bin Laden and collect the $50 million reward.
On May 13, 2005, Eltaib Yousif, 41, a resident of Castro Valley, California, made his initial court appearance in federal court in San Francisco after being arrested by ICE agents on charges of operating an unlicensed money transmitting business. According to the indictment, Yousif illegally moved more than $1.5 million outside the country between September 2001 and November 2003. The investigation began after San Francisco ICE agents received a tip from ICE agents in New York about suspicious deposits being made into accounts at Citibank branches there and in the Bay Area. These enforcement actions result from an ICE investigative strategy that targets the underlying financial systems that terrorist and other criminal organizations may exploit in raising, moving, and storing illicit funds. ICE seeks to deny criminal organizations access to these systems. One system that has repeatedly proven vulnerable to such exploitation involves money transmittal businesses and related hawalas.
For decades, ICE agents have seen criminal organizations use money transmittal businesses to move their illicit proceeds overseas. In 1996, for example, ICE agents executed search warrants on three locations affiliated with Tele-Austin, a small money transfer firm in Queens, New York. Evidence gleaned from these searches helped ICE identify and ultimately arrest the chief New York representative of Colombia’s Norte Valle drug cartel, who had moved $70 million in drug funds to Colombia through these money transfer firms. Subsequent ICE investigation resulted in the indictment in New York last year of the leaders of the Norte Valle cartel, which is believed to be responsible for 50 percent of the cocaine supplied to the United States.
The USA Patriot Act of 2001 enhanced ICE’s ability to combat the international movement of illicit funds through money transmittal businesses by amending the 18 USC 1960 statute. As a result of this law, money transmittal businesses in the United States are required to be registered with the U.S. Treasury Department and to be licensed by the appropriate state authorities.
