State Dept.: Terrorists Still Welcome Here

Attention, al-Qaeda terrorists: If you want to enter the U.S. to commit more 9/11-style mayhem, don't worry about concealing your intentions from officials at the U.S. State Department, since they apparently couldn't care less.

The department's official non-immigrant visa application, otherwise known as form D-156, actually states that applicants who admit they want to commit terrorist acts may still be good visa candidates.

"Do you seek to enter the U.S. to engage in subversive or terrorist activities, or any other unlawful purpose?" the application reads. "Are you a member of a terrorist organization as currently designated by the U.S. Secretary of State?

"A YES answer does not automatically signify ineligibility for a visa," the form assures.

News of the State Department's terrorist loophole comes via illegal-immigration critic Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., who first brought the wacko provision to the attention of the Washington Times' John McCaslin, who reports it in Thursday editions.

Tancredo has compiled a list of 55 "unbelievable but true immigration stories" that are guaranteed to curl the hair of even the most ardent open-immigration supporter.

Other nightmare regulations include a provision that allows Saudis who regularly travel to the U.S. to dodge a State Department interview by obtaining a visa through travel agents or "drop boxes" adjacent to U.S. consulates in their home country.

Fifteen of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers had Saudi backgrounds.
