Congressman Paul Gosar's constituent Abdullatif Ali Aldosary.
Conservative political commentator Debbie Schlussel can sometimes wildly miss the mark on her points -- occasionally dabbling in conspiracy-theory-level stuff -- but she's got one hell of a question for Republican Congressman Paul Gosar.

If Gosar knew in 2011 that Abdullatif Aldosary was a "known terrorist" -- which, above all, is false -- why did Gosar not sound any alarms about a supposed terrorist living in his district until he allegedly bombed the Social Security Administration office in Casa Grande a year later?

Paul Gosar Thinks Abdullatif Aldosary, Alleged Bomber, Is a "Known Terrorist"; He Is Not

abdullatif-aldosary.jpg
Abdullatif Ali Aldosary is NOT a "known terrorist."
Republican Congressman Paul Gosar wants Homeland Security officials to explain to him why Abdullatif Aldosary -- the Coolidge resident accused of detonating an "explosive device" outside the Social Security Administration building in Casa Grande last week -- has been allowed to stay in the United States.

"It appears to the Congressman that a known terrorist was allowed to travel freely in Arizona and was allegedly able to engage in terrorism more than a year after DHS had already determined he engaged in terrorism activity," Gosar's chief of staff Thomas Van Flein wrote in a letter to a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services official.

There's not too much information out there about Abdullatif Aldosary, the Coolidge resident accused of detonating an "explosive device" outside the Social Security Administration building in Casa Grande Friday morning.

He's apparently an Iraqi refugee, he did a short stint in prison, and from what we can tell, he likes to share pornography with people -- people who have not liked looking at Aldosary's porn.

Abdullatif Aldosary, the Coolidge resident accused of detonating an "explosive device" outside the Social Security Administration building in Casa Grande Friday morning, was hit with two charges yesterday, although just one of those charges is related to the bombing.

The other charge is related to the guns and ammo being found in Aldosary's home after a search warrant was served, since Aldosary -- a convicted felon -- is prohibited from possessing firearms.
