Hmmmm...Terrorists on welfare? sounds like Europe except over there they call it the Dole. Welfare is a needed temporary helping hand for U.S. citizens when they are down on their luck, not a free ride for immigrants. These savages are using our great society against us. Liberals wake up and see the big picture

If this guy is a terrorist then I'm the Queen of England. He sounds like one of the looneys you see wandering around the subways of NY. This is all marketing and hype.

Defreitas was hired by a cargo transportation company at Kennedy Airport,
Watts said. Documents show he was employed as a "trainee supervisor" in
2001 with Evergreen Eagle, a subsidiary of Oregon-based Evergreen
International Aviation. Officials there declined to comment.

Evergreen International Aviation, Inc. is an Oregon-based aviation company
with longstanding ties to the CIA. Its huge Evergreen Maintenance Center
in Arizona was bought from the Agency, which offered the property to
no-one else.[1] In 1980 an Evergreen plane flew the recently deposed Shah
of Iran from Panama to Egypt, hours before the Panamanian government was
due to receive an extradition request from the new government in
Tehran.[2] Giving rides to dictators is something of a specialty for the
company - it also allowed El Salvador's President Duarte to use its
helicopter, which was officially in the country to help repair power
lines.[3]

And according to a series of articles in The Oregonian in 1988,
Evergreen's owner and founder Delford M. Smith "...acknowledged one
agreement under which his companies provide occasional jobs and cover to
foreign nationals the CIA wants taken out of other countries or brought
into the United States. However, neither Smith nor CIA officials would say
whether any broader agreement existed."[4]
