A Jihad Watch EXCLUSIVE, from sources in regular contact with the Bush administration. This has yet to be fully confirmed, so it may turn out to be completely false, or, if true, superseded by other developments:
Tariq Ramadan, who is known to many European observers as “the brain of European Islamists and jihadists,” will be allowed to enter the USA.
He was extensively interviewed in a diplomatic mission in Switzerland a few days ago. Under heavy pressure from the State Department, he will most probably be granted a visa to enter the country, and will be able to teach at Notre Dame University.
During this interview, strangely (which was the word used by the source), a representative of U.S. Customs and Border Protection was not allowed to attend.
Also according to the source, the person representing U.S. Customs and Border Protection was also acting as the representative of the Department of Homeland Security in Switzerland.
According to the source, this story indicates serious disagreements between State and DHS about how to conduct the war on terror.
More details as they become available.
