Cambodians Say US Man Refused Entry Was a Danger to US Embassy

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

An interesting piece of information in an article from yesterday's Phnom Penh Post. The man in question reportedly attempted to enter Cambodia sometime last year. Does anyone know more on this ? The information available does not make much sense.

Department director-general Kirth Chantharith said during the congress that local authorities had also refused entry to a US national after they were advised that he posed a threat to the US embassy.

He said the US informed Cambodian authorities that the man could bomb the embassy and so when he landed, they immediately sent him back to the US.

“The actual situation did not arise. It was just the information we received from the US, saying that if the person entered the Kingdom, it could be insecure for the US Embassy.

“He had a bad intention. Therefore, we did not allow the man to enter the Kingdom. When the person arrived, we let him go back. He arrived at our entrance gate, and we refused him entry.”

.Gov knows the name and identifiers of all folks who leave the USA and their destinations. This information is provided by airlines and TSA. Folks who are being watched or suspected or wanted can result in a denial of entry somewhere else.

Ya'll need to keep in mind that in a giant secured basement somewhere in the USA the fastest computers in the world analyze each and every bit of electronic information that travels on a public network everywhere. If Uncle Sam wants you, alive or dead, sooner or later he will get you. Aint like the old days, good thing they dont care about old fat stoners like me.

I would imagine it has a basement, much is above ground though.

Hmm, very strange. The US authorities allegedly suspect a US national of entering Cambodia to carry out a terrorist attack, but instead of detaining or arresting him, he gets sent back to the US without further ado. :?

Thats better. But you are wrong. Read about PRISM, think about acres of purpose built Supercomputers and remember the old adage that you only ever know half of whats really going on.
