A known murderous Al-Qaeda terrorist has been found and arrested in Arizona!
The United States Department of Justice says Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri, 42, was arrested in the Phoenix area recently and efforts are being made to extradite him to the Republic of Iraq. Al-Nouri was known to be the leader of a group of Al-Qaeda terrorists in Al-Fallujah, Iraq where he was wanted for the murders of two Iraqi police officers.
According to the Department of Justice, efforts are now underway to extradite him to the Republic of Iraq. That he had been hiding out in the US, should be a cause for concern for liberals and conservatives alike!
According to the Government of Iraq, “Ahmed served as the leader of a group of Al-Qaeda terrorists in Al-Fallujah, Iraq, which planned operations targeting Iraqi police.”
Ahmed and other members of the Al-Qaeda group are accused of killing a first lieutenant and also an officer from the Fallujah Police Directorate in 2006.
The details contained in the complaint are allegations and have not yet been proven in court. If Ahmed’s extradition is certified by the court, the decision of whether to surrender him to Iraq will be made by the U.S. Secretary of State.
According to the Department of Justice, “Ahmed’s arrest was executed by the FBI Phoenix Field Office, HSI Phoenix Field Office and the U.S. Marshals Service. The extradition case will be handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona and the Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs.”
