Last night Fox News host Greta Van Susteren interviewed Jillian Melchior, the National Review reporter that broke some additional information about the Jordanian terrorist Rasmieh Yousef Odeh who a Illinois Review reported on back in November (HERE).
As IR reported, Odeh was an associate director at the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), and a convicted terrorist who had spent time in prison in Israel. She was also an Obamacare navigator here in Illinois.
Her navigator status was quietly revoked late last year when her conviction for the bombing of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem were revealed. Her actions took the lives of two students, and injured as many as 10 others.
The National Review reported:
According to the director of insurance’s Oct. 25, 2013, revocation letter, the Department of Insurance found out about Odeh’s history after the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Michigan, notified the public about her prior convictions.
Odeh, who has as many as nine aliases, was indicted in October for allegedly lying on her U.S. immigration and naturalization application papers. On Dec. 9, 2004, she had been sworn in as a U.S. citizen in a district court in Michigan, the same state where bombing victim Kanner had spent six months studying English. If Odeh is convicted, she could lose her U.S. citizenship and serve up to 10 years in prison. Separately, the Illinois Insurance Code permits civil penalties to be levied after a hearing on any Obamacare navigator whose certificate has been denied, suspended or revoked.
Earlier in November, and under intense questioning by U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, Health and Human Services Secretary admitted to the possibility of felons being hired as Obamacare navigators. No one had ever dreamed of asking Sebelius if an international terrorist might also be hired.
