Ali Ahmed, a Somali parasite and U.S. citizen, was headed to Kenya last week for two big milestones. He was to meet his father, with whom he was separated during the Somali civil war. And he was to meet his fiance (first cousin?) and take part in an arranged marriage (definitely first cousin). Instead, Ahmed, 20, was refused entry at the Kenyan airport and sent to Bahrain, where he was informed that he was on the U.S. government’s no-fly list.
U-T San Diego Ahmed, a City Heights resident, (City Heights? That’s where the YMCA just made certain hours off limits to everyone but Muslims) left the U.S. on May 23 and spent a month in Saudi Arabia on a pilgrimage to Mecca. Before his departure, Ahmed said he had not traveled outside of the U.S. since arriving with family from Kenya in September 1999. They moved from Riverside to San Diego in 2000.
For more than a week, he has been stranded in Bahrain trying to return to San Diego, he said. “I am really confused because nobody told me the reason why. They just told me, ‘You are rejected,’” Ahmed said by phone. “I am a citizen. I was surprised. I wasn’t expecting it… I just hope I can come home safely from Bahrain. I am staying with strangers right now. I don’t feel comfortable.”
Ahmed said he was told Thursday by the U.S. Embassy in Bahrain that he was cleared to return to the states Monday evening. When he arrived at the airport for his $1,900 flight, however, he was once again denied. No offers have been made to reimburse him for flight costs, he said.

While in Bahrain, Ahmed connected with the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (on every Muslim’s speed dial list), which wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday urging her to intervene.
“His placement on the no-fly list without due process of law, and his corresponding inability to fly back home to the United States, constitute grave violations of his civil rights and liberties,” wrote CAIR staff lawfare goon, Gadeir Abbas. “If Mr. Ahmed is prevented from returning home to the United States again, he may seek legal recourse to protect his right to return home.”
The U.S. Privacy Act prohibits the FBI, one of multiple law enforcement agencies to make referrals to place individuals on the list, from discussing who may or may not be on the no-fly list. The list was started after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and is overseen by the Terrorist Screening Center.
