Second Minnesotan to die fighting for ISIS in Syria reportedly had security clearance at MSP

Abdirahmaan Muhumed grew up in Minneapolis, but he became the second Minnesotan to die fighting for ISIS in Syria this summer. (We wrote about the first, Douglas McCain, a week ago.)

But perhaps the scariest aspect of Muhumed's story is what he was reportedly doing for work before leaving America. According to Fox 9, he worked at MSP cleaning planes and had a security clearance giving him unfettered access to the airport's tarmac.

Fox 9's report is based on what they heard from two of Muhumed's former Delta Global Services co-workers. We reached out to airport officials for confirmation, but they declined to comment on Muhumed's employment history at this time.

However, MSP spokesperson Melissa Scovronski tells us the sort of security clearance Muhumed would've had, assuming the Fox 9 report is correct, is called a Security Identity Display Area, or SIDA.

Scovronski says workers with a SIDA don't necessarily go have to go through a metal detector when they report for work each day. But to get that clearance, prospective employees are subjected to rigorous background checks conducted by the airport in conjunction with the FBI and Homeland Security.

"They can still restrict your access to some degree to certain doors, but basically a SIDA badge is going to let you onto the airfield," Scovronski says. "But you have to renew [your badge] every certain number of months and then they do another check. Though it may not be as thorough of a check, regular renewals of those badges have to take place."

Scovronski didn't immediately have information about what sorts of things in a person's past might disqualify them from receiving a SIDA badge, but Fox reports that Muhumed's record in Minnesota was clean.

It's unclear at what point Muhumed became radicalized. Fox reports he was unemployed before he left Minnesota and had grown disillusioned while struggling to support nine children from several different mothers.

Muhumed's Facebook page, which has been dormant since November of last year and lists him as living in Nigeria, features selfies taken in Minnesota that were posted as recently as August 2013.

Posts from April of last year suggest Muhumed was being pulled in both secular and religious directions:

Airport security is a joke. It's just theater that makes the general public feel better.

"...nine children from seven different mothers..." Unreal. And we wonder why people in this country are so screwed up. 


Abject poverty, lack of an [intelligent] parental figure - breeding ground for delinquency and criminality. Between the entitlement of the current generation and the sorry state of parenting and accountability today - I'm terrified for the future, and I'm only 27. And I'm about as liberal as it comes, but this behavior is becoming far too normalized for my liking. 


But as swmnguy said - he clearly didn't want to do anything nefarious to the planes, but I'd suggest this was because he was too busy overpopulating the earth with 1.28 children with different women.

Obviously he didn't want to do anything nefarious to the planes, because he had the opportunity and didn't.  And, clearly, background checks of one's history are not a good indicator of what one might do in the future.


That said, I think anyone who has US citizenship and goes to fight for a foreign military should lose their citizenship.  Yes, that includes Israel.  You can't swear allegiance to two different countries.

For all those wondering "What happened" in Minnesota you can thank HHH. He and his Demobster cronies realized early on that there is big money in "helping the poor."

Yes You Can make billions selling liquor and ease your conscience at the same time. Besides, there have to be jobs created for your children who don't want to be in the Liquor Syndicate! There's Hennepin County Social Services for them! Reality really sucks sometimes. Sorry!

Why all the hate? This poor young man was just another victim of "systemic" institutional "racism". The evil white man only "provided" him with a low-wage job. The evil white man denied him birth control, so he was forced to impregnate 9 different women. He had no choice to to join ISIS. The evil RAAAAAYYYYSIS white man forced him to. Poor guy.

I had a comment up here but it was deleted. From a bunch of dink journalists than don't even understand that the very reason they exist is because of the first amendment. Rules they don't mind imposing on others but complain when it is imposed on themselves. Nice job frauds.

@Jeff_Mpls I hope this was sarcasm, but if it is not, I feel bad for you.  This world must be awful for you to live in with your ignorant mindset.  People make their own choices.  It is a choice to listen to the nonsense that is being spit out by any government.  I have empathy for those who can be easily brainwashed, but I in no way pity them.

@Jeff_Mpls you are correct in that the white man does oppress people of color. keen eye.

@digitalprotocol What would your solution be to all this evil oppression? Take property from one group with a certain skin color and give it to another group with a certain skin color?

@Jeff_Mpls do you support the US military or something?

@james_a_dawson Did your kid join the US military as an infidel fighter? Its the same thing just a different point of view. The Islamic state has done an impressive job with its media campaign to sell it to other muslims as a heaven on earth for those that want to live like its the 7th century to be closer to god. It really isnt surprising that it would appeal to young religious muslims that want to be apart of their culture that is constantly being ripped away by westernization.

@worksman ya, a reset button would be great. These dickheads above fail to realize that their bootlicking mentality only propagates groups like ISIS.


placing the blame on the have-nots is pretty silly, even for a bootlicking fear driven fool.

@digitalprotocol @worksman Digitaldick has no skin in the game. He doesn't pay much in the way of taxes.  What he does not understand is that the rest of us are on the hook for his 9 kids.

@digitalprotocol @Jeff_Mpls Same old same old digital.  trying to invoke that others are racist.   Jeff is correct and you are wrong.   Face it, you are white and self-hating.   You are clearly not a black.

@digitalprotocol Actually, no, everybody doesn't pay taxes. You don't "pay" taxes on something with the money that was given to you from the labor of someone else.

@kurt124 @digitalprotocol @Jeff_Mpls im trying to show how uneducated you two are...the fact that you believe the white man to be superior and free of blame is amazingly stupid of you.


why even bother trying to teach you fucking bootlickers anything when youve already been prosthelytized by the aryan brother hood. 


if you are so wise, please explain the indian reservations, german concentration camps, and apartheid. feel free to use bing or google to get definitions of words i have used.

@Jeff_Mpls oh i bet your labor power is so valuable too. who are you even referring to? corporations receive free money too and pay little to no taxes. the ultra rich pay almost no taxes.
