Immigration Agents Bribed By Islamic Extremeists

I found this off FreeRepublic.com.  This was published in the Washington Times yesterday and it is not good. U.S. agents accused of aiding Islamist scheme (excerpted):

A criminal investigations report says several U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services employees are accused of aiding Islamic extremists with identification fraud and of exploiting the visa system for personal gain.

According to the document, other potential security failures include reports that:

Employees are sharing detailed information on internal security measures with people outside the agency.

A Lebanese citizen bribed an immigration officer with airline tickets for visa benefits.

A USCIS officer in Harlington, Texas, sold immigration documents for $10,000 to as many as 20 people.

A USCIS employee, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal, said many of the complaints in the multipage document are as many as three years old.

“Terrorists need immigration documents to embed in our society and work here without raising alarm bells,” said the employee.

The article is relatively short but provides more details as well as some information about the DEA report on Islamic extremists linking with drug cartels and  posing as hispanics.   I will have to keep an eye out for follow up articles and would expect that this be thoroughly investigated as it would appear to border on treason.  Which begs the question, would this be treason?
