The general problem that continues is that Americans generally do not understand or take seriously the problem of Islamic terrorism. From NewsMax.com, :
In a bid to get out the vote for John Kerry, Democrat activist groups in Ohio have registered at least two known terrorists involved in a plot to blow up a shopping center.
Nuradin Abdi, a Somali immigrant and admitted al-Qaida member who was indicted earlier this year as part of a conspiracy to blow up the Columbus Mall, was registered to vote by the left-wing group ACORN, according to the Columbus Dispatch and the Ohio News Now TV Network.
ACORN has spearheaded an aggressive Democrat vote drive in the battleground states.
Iyman Faris, another new Ohio voter added to the rolls by Democrats, is serving a 20-year jail sentence for his role in surveilling potential al-Qaida targets, including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Dispatch said….
“As far as board of elections is concerned, Abdi is a registered voter,” Ohio board of elections director Matt Damschroeder told ONN.
Only after Abdi’s case was exposed did Ohio officials strike his name from the voting rolls, because of his status as an illegal alien.
Faris became a naturalized citizen in 1999 but is not eligible to vote because he’s an incarcerated felon.
