U.S. Authorities Arrest Alleged Al-Qaida Leader In Arizona

Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri, a known Al-Qaida terrorist, was arrested on behalf of Iraq on Thursday in Phoenix.

Phoenix, AZ – An alleged Al-Qaida terrorist leader was arrested in Phoenix on Thursday for the murders of two Iraqi police officers.

U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) officials confirmed that 42-year-old Phoenix resident Ali Yousif Ahmed Al-Nouri was arrested on Jan. 30 and held on an extradition request from the government of Iraq, the Arizona Republic reported.

He was taken before a magistrate Jan. 31 to begin extradition proceedings, ABC News reported.

Iraqi officials told the U.S. government that Al-Nouri was the leader of a group of Al-Qaida terrorists in Al-Fallujah that planned operations targeting the Iraqi police, the Arizona Republic reported.

The information statement the Iraqi government provided to the DoJ requesting extradition said that Al-Nouri and other Al-Qaida members fatally shot a Fallujah Police Directorate first lieutenant on about June 1, 2006 and killed a police officer on about Oct. 3, 2006, ABC News reported.

An Iraqi judge initially issued a warrant for Al-Nouri’s arrest, the Arizona Republic explained.

Then the Iraqi government requested help from the U.S. government to arrest and extradite the alleged cop killer.

On Wednesday, U.S. Magistrate Judge John Z. Boy issued a warrant for Al-Nouri’s arrest, the Arizona Republic reported.

Members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Homeland Security Investigations, and the U.S. Marshals Service coordinated to take Al-Nouri into custody on Thursday.

The extradition case is being managed by the U.S. Attorney's Office of Arizona and the Criminal Division's Office of International Affairs, according to the Arizona Republic.

A U.S. Court must approve Al-Nouri’s extradition and then Secretary of State Mike Pompeo must bless the move before law enforcement will surrender the known terrorist to Iraq, Sky News reported.

No information has been released on how Al-Nouri entered the United States, how long he had been living in Arizona, or how he made his income, ABC New reported.

You never know who is living next door. Anyone who supports "sanctuary cities" are giving aid to the enemy.

California & it's sanctuary state policy cripples ICE & makes LEO complacent about arresting anyone suspicious whether Latino or Middle Eastern ! Given the fact that Governor Newsom is a Girlie Man hunt, crime will be on the rise and nowhere there can you call safe ! I have No desire to live anywhere out in Liberal western states ! I live in a state where LEO is beloved & have stand your own state that does anything but protect perpetrators !🇩🇪🇺🇸🇬🇧

Unfortunately there are more to take his place. We have the borders and we have the refugee resettlement program sponsored by the UN that brings them to airports in the dead of night. No family's just men between 15 and 45. They are taken to a room in the airport and are unvetted, unwashed with the clothes on their backs. Most dont speak english and not always a translator. They are given food stamps, medicaid and housing and urged to file for long term disability and sign up for US passports. They have diseases but the medical staff there arent there to diagnose. They are there to ask if they have anything that hurts them like their back. Then Lutheran Ministries, Catholic Services and Jewish Vocational take them to areas with their like kind. Do you think they are monitored? Hell no. They all come from the Middle East including Syria. I keep my eye on my area and neighbors and who moves in because my neighbors are all illegals from Guatemala, El Savadore and I dont remember where the other crew are from. Its happening way more than people think. I dont keep a set schedule and may go shopping at 2am or water my grass at 3am and leave no doubt that Im locked and loaded at all times. These are scary times and we all need to stay vigilant.

Those are 2 pretty important questions at the end also how the hell did they even get in. People need to leave the President alone so he can focus on keeping us safe. Let him do his job. Best President in American history. Think what he could do for us without fighting off the left every second.

How many people did he contaminate with his hate for America. Real sad he made it into the USA. Now do you think I am going to give up my weapons. Never.

Democrats want any and every body to have a place in the USA, unfortunately they allow the criminal elements in as well and don't care either. As long as it doesn't affect them or their family they don't care.

I wish we could get this kind of cooperation from other countries for know terrorists in America. I hope they practice Sharia law.

He was living at or working at 16512 West Quail Run Road, Surprise, AZ 85387. That's where the indictment said he "can be found."

This is supposedly him...

If he's a terrorist, shouldn't we give him a dose of his own terrorism, before we release him to Iraq?

The shooting was in 2006. Did it take them this long to ID him? Or this long to find him?
