Ba’athists began collaborating with al Qaeda in Iraq – the early incarnation of what would become Islamic State – soon after Saddam Hussein was ousted in 2003. Saddam had run a brutal police state. The U.S. occupation dissolved the Baath Party and barred senior and even middling party officials from joining the new security services. Some left the country, others joined the anti-American insurgency. But then the Baathists and jihadists disagreed over who should be in charge. Many ex-Baathists struck an alliance with the U.S. military and turned on the jihadists. By 2014, the Ba’athists and the jihadists were back to being allies. As Islamic State fighters swept through central Iraq, they were joined by the Army of the Men of the Naqshbandi Order, a group of Baathist fighters.
Ba’ath Party Structured As Nazi Party, Ba’ath Party Members Escaped to USA and Become Used Car Dealers in Bowling Green and Tampa Supporting Terrorists in Iraq. BAGHDAD, Feb. 15 (UPI) — The outlawed Ba’ath Party of Iraq is a totalitarian power akin to the Nazi Party of Germany under Adolf Hitler, said chief election overseer Ahmad Chalabi. “Just like the Nazi party they practiced genocide and they killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and they promoted war just like the Nazi party in Germany as a way to solve crisis and international problems and the crimes they committed in Iraq,” Chalabi, a Shiite, told Press TV. Like the Nazi and Communist parties, the Ba’ath party is organized through small cells in a rigid hierarchy. Members are expected to devote their life to the party. In Iraq, would-be members pass through four stages even before becoming a full member: supporter, sympathizer, nominee and trainee. Currently, there are about two million Iraqis in these categories. The system requires passing successfully a series of tests, so full members of Saddam’s Baathist organization are the most hardened and fanatical of his supporters.

The U.N. has referred more than 42,000 Iraqis for resettlement in the United States, most all are not vetted, most come to Florida where the climate is similar to Iraq.

LA TIMES, July 18th, 2011 Iraqi refugees in U.S. rechecked for terrorism links. In a far-reaching inquiry, authorities are rescreening more than 58,000 Iraqi refugees living in the United States amid concerns that lapses in immigration security may have allowed former insurgents and potential terrorists to enter the country (Ba’ath Party), U.S. officials said. The investigation was given added urgency after U.S. intelligence agencies warned that Al Qaeda leaders in Iraq and Yemen had tried to target the U.S. refugee stream, or exploit other immigration loopholes, in an attempt to infiltrate the country with operatives.
October 23rd, 2011….Iraq Arrests Ba’ath Party Members. Security forces arrested over 170 people suspected of belonging to the now-outlawed Ba’ath Party. Mass arrests took place across the country. Some of the detainees were former military personnel and others may have once belonged to the party. During the Saddam era, moving forward politically meant joining the party, regardless of personal beliefs. Baghdad has long blamed an underground Ba’ath Party movement for many of its problems.
Monday, Feb. 27th 2012….FBI : Iraqi Used Car Dealer in Ky. terror case bragged about past. FBI Special Agent Chris Faber quoted 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi as saying he didn’t know how many explosives he had placed in Iraq because “By God I didn’t count them.” “I mean, I used to do two or three operations a day in Baghdad and I used to do every day in my neighborhood,” Hammadi said. Hammadi faces 12 charges, including perjury and attempting to send material support to a known terrorist organization. His trial is scheduled for July 30. Alwan pleaded guilty to 23 terrorism-related charges in December and is to be sentenced April 3. The search warrant, approved Jan. 25 and obtained by The Associated Press as a public record, gives details of recorded conversations between Hammadi, 30-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan and the confidential source from late 2009 through early summer 2011 in Bowling Green.
Ba’ath Party members escaped to the USA as “refugees”. Iraqi Refugees and Used Car Dealers Waad Alwan and Muhamad Hammadi Charged With Shipping Arms to Al Qaeda, There Are a Lot of Iraqi Used Car Dealers In Tampa Fl. Two Iraqi nationals who came to the US as refugees were arrested in Kentucky on charges that they conspired to provide money, weapons, and other support to Al Qaeda in Iraq, federal officials announced on Tuesday. Before he was granted refugee status in the U.S. and settled down in Bowling Green, Ky., Waad Ramadan Alwan was allegedly a sniper and skilled bomb maker who targeted U.S. forces and bragged that his “lunch and dinner would be an American.” Alwan is one of two Iraqi refugees who the Justice Department had been charged with participating in an alleged plot to send cash, explosives and Stinger missiles to Iraq for use against Americans. When asked how men who actively fought against the U.S. in Iraq could have been allowed in the country, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information, said the case demonstrated that there were “specific gaps” in refugee vetting procedures before 2010, with thousands of them ending up in Florida.
