Comments: I can't wait to read your book. I just heard about it tonite. You're a tuff nut and I love it. My background isn't nearly as exciting as yours, but the average grandmother, I'm not. I'm attaching an article that basically outlines what my family and I have been going through in dealing with Illegal Terrorist right here in our yards. I wish you lived closer, you could tell me how to do the things I know need to be done to bring this to an end. Thank you so much for taking the time to do the things you've done for our country, and thank you for taking the time to write your book. My article was published on Daniel Pipes and Dave Gabutz's web sites. If you've got any hints, please let me know. Thanks
HEZBOLLAH IS ALL AROUND US - WHERE IS OUR GOVERNMENT?
Wake up America, open your eyes, look around you. We read the papers, we watch the news, we hear all the talk about the Illegal Mexican's coming into our country by the thousand everyday. Our Government is finally trying to react to something they should have reacted to many years ago. Because they didn't, we are now in one heck of a bind in many aspects. We don't have enough personnel with the Border Patrol, "INS" is a JOKE to say the least. They are so outdated, under staffed, under trained, and their computer systems aren't able to handle and control the influx of Immigrant's and know where they are, and haven't known for years...not to mention they don't have enough personnel to enforce the laws, and keep proper records.
We have ICE (Immigration Custom Enforcement), a branch of Homeland Security who is way under staffed. They don't have the means to handle the large number of reports and investigations brought to their attention, so what happens when someone notifies a government agency of an Illegal Immigrant? Basically, nothing. Would you believe that the Wilmington, N.C. Eastern District Office for ICE has 8 employees assigned to that office...and North Carolina has one of the highest numbers of Illegal Alien's in the United States.
I've been trying for over two years to get the government to act in removing an Illegal Lebanese man that came to the U.S., was deported, went to Canada, got his citizenship there, and returned here to North Carolina, and has stayed here illegally.
My daughter met him in 1995, they married in 1998, she believed that he was divorced from his Lebanese wife, but learned in mid 2004, when an Arabic document came to the house, and she had his niece read it to her, that she had just gotten the marriage annulled. They have a six-year-old son, they separated when she learned their marriage was not legal, and he was here illegally. She felt so used, and lives in fear for her safety and that of her son everyday. She is afraid that he will take their son, and leave the country, as he has threatened to do to both she and my self.
She has borrowed large sums of money to protect herself and her son through the courts to no avail. Even with the judge knowing he was here illegally, he allowed un-supervised visitation. He has been in contempt of court for over two years, yet she can't get a hearing on the contempt order. He has admitted that he was still married to his Lebanese wife, yet has filed for annulment of this marriage to keep from being charged with Bigamy. With the weight his attorney has with the courts (judges), he will probably get it.
This man is here illegally, his brother is a convicted felon, convicted of smuggling cigarettes from N.C. to Michigan. When he was arrested there, he faked a heart attack, and cut a deal with the FBI giving them the names of the 17 arrested, and convicted in Charlotte of smuggling cigarettes, money laundering, fraudulent marriages, and funneling money to terrorist group Hezbollah, because he's on the informants list, the authorities won't take action.
The FBI stated if they did anything serious, they would take action. I asked, if smuggling cigarettes, money laundering in opening two cigar stores with profits from illegal acts, fraudulent marriage, funneling money to Hezbollah, and being here illegally weren't serious, would they please tell me what was.
I've written to the V. President, ICE, Homeland Security, FBI, INS, even IRS, etc...yet our government won't take any action, or remove these two from our country. How can a convicted felon get his citizenship? Shouldn't he have been deported when he was convicted instead of being put on the FBI's Informant list for protection? I understand he came back to N.C., and laughed about what he’d pulled over on the feds.
The big laugh here is that another member of their group had already given the same names to the FBI when he cut his deal to keep from being prosecuted for the $700,000.00 in counterfeit cigarette stamps, while at the airport in St. Louis, Missouri, as well as his involvement in the Charlotte deal, agreeing to testifying against his co-horts in crime.
The FBI's communication systems didn't allow them to share this information, and both criminals cut their deals, and remained here continuing their illegal acts. The other informant is now being held in Charlotte for Fire Bombing a Convenience Store, wonder what this one has to do before they’ll take action against him?
America, we're in trouble in a big way. We are surrounded by foreigners everywhere we look. When our State Corp. Commission allows illegals to form corporations, and do business in our State, our Cities and Towns give them business license, they get drivers license, buy cars, do anything they want and no one questions them...What's wrong with this picture? Our tax money is to pay the salaries of those government agencies to protect us, yet they're not doing it, just as they didn't protect us before 9-11.
What are we going to do about it? Where do we turn? Do we just sit back, and let the illegal aliens take control of our country? It appears that we don't have much choice at this point, does it? If you've got any ideas, please let me know, I've run out of names, and address, not to mention agencies to ask for help. I surely can't go to local law enforcement, the man running for sheriff in our district has a huge sign in front of their local store, and they can't even vote, but they can give big donations from sales they don't pay taxes on....no need to go there, I could write a book about what we’ve been forced to live through these past few years, because our own government, and law enforcement, not to mention the judicial system won’t take action.
When this man’s attorney refused to allow him to answer the question about being in this country illegally during discover, that clearly told me that the attorney knew he was illegal, and in my opinion that’s called “Aiding & Abetting, for his own personal gain”, and he should be prosecuted, but no one would dare have that thought but me.
When I wrote to the N.C. Governor’s office asking for help, the e-mail I got back from them told me to contact Homeland Security. Wouldn’t you think that perhaps it might have gotten a little more attention, had the request come directly from the Governor’s office?
Then the best one of all was from Senator Elizabeth Dole. I had written her office outlining the problems with a lot more details that this article has, and in return I received a two page letter telling me all about what she was doing in regard to Illegal Immigration….what a joke, and what a waste of my time to dare go directly to my Senator, and ask for help in removing someone I know is in this country Illegally, and I have evidence that would easily get him convicted of a variety of felonies, not to mention being deported, but instead of help or advice, I get a form letter. Bet she won’t even miss my vote next election.
The one thing that has scared me the most is the fact that these individuals sponsor three Marine baseball teams at Cherry Point Marine Base. Have been invited and attended the Marine Ball. Come and go on our base without ever going through Security, they merely have someone that visits the stores meet them at the gate, and escort them on our Military Base, all while in our country Illegally. It is a fact that the previous Base Commander Panter went to this individuals home for dinner to celebrate his promotion prior to being transferred. It was pointed out to the Commander that he didn’t know who he was dealing with, yet it never meant a thing to him. Why has our Government spent millions of dollars building new fences and gates to protect our bases, when these individuals can come, and go easier than you or I? Isn’t this a frightening thought to say the least.
Open your eyes American’s, be aware of what's happening around you every day. I'M OUTRAGED AT OUR GOVERNMENT, ARE YOU? WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT? I CAN TELL YOU WHAT WE'RE DOING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, WE JUST SIT BACK AND LET IT HAPPEN, after all, what else can we do, when we’ve tried everything we know to try. I cringe at the thought that there may be others that have sought help, as I have, and that there are others out there our government agencies are ignoring, just as they did before 9-11. Say prayers, it’s our only hope at this point.

Thank you for the book, I read it Saturday afternoon before going to the association banquet.
Thank you for the signing the book, my family truly appreciates the kind words you had for my father.
You asked me to read the book and let you know what I thought. Here goes.
When I spoke with you Saturday morning, 16 Jun, you talked about how difficult it is to vet a book of this type. From the detail I can tell you needed to speak with quite a few people and I'm sure that at times some of the information you received was conflicting. You mentioned my father in your book, how do I say this? My dad wasn't with the OSS, he would have been very proud that you would think of him in this regard particularly since the men and women of the OSS were true patriots and professionals, but he also would have been very quick to point out that he didn't serve with them.
And if I may, one nit, I was working in Saudi Arabia at about the same time you were in Lybia, I wasn't there very long, I was teaching weapons for Vinnell. When I read the book I felt you were making a generalization about Arabs. Yes, they didn't have the aptitude at that time to run UW or DA missions, but what I found in Saudi Arabia was small pockets or desert dwelling conscripts that had a very intense interest in learning about maintenance of equipment, from weapons to vehicles. I found it particularly interesting because at that point in time all the labor in the country was imported from Yemen, Pakistan, Indonesia, Korea, Jordan and Iraq. I also found that some of our translators, those from the Middle East were particularly interested in the deploy and maintenance of weapons systems. But we're talking about two different areas. Just thought I'd share an observation.
The book is well written, factual and makes you want more. You're an amazing man.
