another quality immigrant.
how easy would it be for more just like him to sneak in during the current 'refugee' tidal wave?

A US jury has found that a former Uber driver living in Virginia committed acts of torture during Somalia's civil war in the late 1980s.

Somali citizen Farhan Tani Warfaa testified last week in the Washington DC suburbs that ex-Somali colonel Yusuf Abdi Ali shot and tortured him.

Ali was a commander in the national army and supporter of dictator Mohamed Siad Barre, say court documents.

Until this month, Ali drove for Uber, with a high 4.89 rating.

On Tuesday, a jury at a federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, found that Ali was responsible for the torture of Mr Warfaa more than three decades ago, awarding Mr Warfaa $500,000 (395,000) in damages.

I can’t help but laugh at the zaniness of this story. Seriously ... just a great plot for a madcap comedy.

“The wackiest warlord in the fleet”.

Well, each poster in here (including myself) funds drone strikes on Somalian babies and that is on-going.

I'm sure Uber would hire all of us too.

1.1 Million Illegals are coming across the Border this year illegally, many we'll never know who they are.

Many are from the Middle East and Asia. Places like Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Wonder how many terrorist are in that 1.1 Million.
