Convicted Rapist Reached the U.S. On Afghan Evacuation Flight

Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, August 30, 2021

A man who had been convicted of rape and deported from the U.S. was allowed to board an Afghan evacuation flight and reach America, law enforcement sources say.

When American citizens were having trouble catching flights out of KabulGhader Heydari made it on an Ethiopian Airlines charter flight for evacuees.

Border officials flagged the 47-year-old on his arrival at Washington Dulles International Airport. They appear to be the first to have spotted his criminal and immigration history and derailed his entry.
