US Initiates Review of Afghan Evacuees Who May Threat Its National Security

After the request of American senators from the US Ministry of Defense in order to review those Afghan evacuees who were not properly vetted before entering the United States so that they might not be a threat to national security, this ministry has begun the process of reviewing the cases of Afghan refugees.

The Acting Inspector General of the US Department of Defense (DoD) wrote in a letter that their office is initiating a review after Sens. Ron Johnson and Josh Hawley sent a letter voicing concerns that some Afghan evacuees were not properly vetted before entering the United States.

In the letter, Johnson and Hawley wrote that the DoD whistleblower alleged that more than 300 individuals evacuated from Afghanistan “appeared on the DoD’s Biometrically Enabled Watchlist (BEWL),” a list that “identifies individuals whose biometrics have been collected and determined by analysts to be threats or potential threats to national security, including known suspected terrorists.”

Johnson went on to charge that the US allowed people in that “were on the terror watch list,” and some were even “scrubbed” from the list.

After the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, thousands of citizens of this country were evacuated to America.
