Did UPS plane(s) secretively bring “refugees” to America from the Middle East?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 7, 2016

I don’t know! (Sorry if you were expecting a definitive answer!)

The rumor has been going around for months (surely you’ve seen it).

My first reaction is to dismiss the story because it would require so many people in-the-know and I can’t believe that they would all stay silent for so long.  Or, since everyone has a camera, did no one take a picture of the “refugees” being loaded on to buses and moved to some undisclosed locations?  And, are there no resettlement agency personnel with a conscience dropping hints?

What about those Uzbeks?

That said, there is pretty good circumstantial evidence that the US Refugee Admissions Program has been used to secretively bring people into the country where the US State Department wants to ‘help’ some world leader with a ‘problem’ group of people.

Fazliddin Kurbanov

Uzbek refugee Fazliddin Kurbanov convicted of Islamic terror charges in Idaho. Did we bring trouble-making Uzbek Muslims to the US in a special arrangement with the government of Uzbekistan in the Bush Administration?

I’m talking about the alleged airlift of Uzbeks in a joint effort between the CIA and the US State Department during the Bush Administration following the 2005 uprising of more ‘devout’ Muslims against their own Muslim government in Uzbekistan.

Learn more about the Andijan uprising here at Wikipedia.  And, see here where we mentioned the rumors about an airlift of Uzbeks to the US.  By the way, about 96% of the population of Uzbekistan is Muslim.

Checking the State Department data base I see we admitted 2,848 Uzbeks since 2002.  And, although we brought “refugees” from many religious groups, Muslims were the single greatest number and in 2006 (after the uprising) we saw the largest number of Uzbek “refugees” of any year since 2002 arrive in the US—480—and the vast majority were Muslims that year.

See our archive on Uzbekistan here and note the relatively high number of Uzbeks arrested on terror charges over the years.

I’m reporting the Uzbek persistent mystery because I believe there is something to the story, and it suggests that maybe it is possible to bring “refugees” into the US outside of the normal process.  So I can’t say it couldn’t ever happen!


Now back to that UPS plane story…..

A readers sent this youtube clip (over a half a million views) which suggests there may be something to the rumors flying around now, but it in no way gives us any hard evidence.  (30 busloads of people from one plane?)

Perhaps the most useful bit of the clip shows NJ Governor Chris Christie telling Bill O’Reilly that he has/had no idea that non-profit groups like Catholic Charities have been dropping refugees in NJ for years.  It also shows how ignorant O’Reilly is about the resettlement process that is over 35 years old!  Where the h*** have they all been?





I’ve heard from some of you asking for some confirmation about this story.  I can’t give it to you, but I urge all of you to send me links (either confirming it or debunking it) to more on this story through the comment thread here.

Update Feb. 9th:  See this link a reader sent:

And, for goodness sake, if you see something fishy where you live, take photos!

Until further notice, this post is filed in our ‘rumors’ category.

    Did someone mention Fethulah Gulen?

    From the Turkish Press:

    Around 3,000 people attended the 14th edition of the International Festival of Language and Culture, formerly known as the International Turkish Language Olympiad, in the US state of Texas on Saturday.

    Congressman Al Green and Pete Olson also attended the event as the Raindrop Foundation, which held the event, was awarded two certificates of merit on behalf of the state of Texas. (Read more at the link below)


  4. Keep people who obey Allah who killed the immortal stars of God need to stay out of the USA. They need to repent of that evil belief system. They are amelkhites. You know what Saul and David did to them.

    Don’t believe as I have it from an inside source
    That their A/C are tracked every minute. Better look at the Cia and
    The old evergreen aviation.

    Ann, you may have missed the lead story in the NYT Sunday magazine of 3 weeks ago. After saying that the opposition was mostly a “fringe movement” it mentioned you as a conservative from rural Maryland. Mentioned that you blogged about Muslims and others coming to the U.S. – no mention of the role you play in shedding light on this crazy program. They mentioned you gave your book on the hijra to Trump.

      Thanks, I did miss that. I assume there is a link on-line. LOL! Most readers who read RRW do not frequent the NYT (obviously) because you are the first to mention it.

        here is link and quote.

        Just curious, can you tell if readership goes up after an MSM mention like this?

        “Yet, as these Iraqis began to arrive, opposition to resettling them was swift. It began, for the most part, with fringe groups. Ann Corcoran, a conservative from rural Maryland, started a blog called Refugee Resettlement Watch, in which she chronicles news re­lated to Muslims and others arriving in the United States. She warns that Muslims are coming to build ‘‘cities within cities’’ and to establish Shariah law in America. Corcoran told me that in Iowa last spring, she handed her book, ‘‘Refugee Resettlement and Hijra to America,’’ directly to Donald Trump.”

          Thanks! Only if its an extraordinary number. I’ll check the date of the publication and the day after.

          Nothing out of the ordinary happened with our numbers on the 24th and 25th. However, had the NYT hyper-linked RRW (which they didn’t do probably strategically) then we can see how many the NYT would have referred to RRW. But, alas, they did not.


  7. Re: the UPS flight story – I researched this a little. The story was all over the internet BUT all of the stories led back to one source – a web site that apparently covers issues and “news” about the Russian military. There is no other independent reporting on this. Just FYI.

    Ann, are you able to contact me personally at my e-mail address regarding this subject?

    There are also eyewitnesses that saw the same thing from a cruiseliner on the west coast – people whisked away in busses…

    Do you trust Obama?


    • Ann Corcoran said

      No more than I trusted Bush. Now, let’s get those eyewitnesses on record. BTW, there were Somalis and other than Mexicans being bused from the border and eyewitnesses did get photos and had a discussion with the bus driver. However, those were illegal aliens apprehended at the border, not flown in via UPS. Do you have another case other than that one involving an ICE bus?

      • Apparently Obama has changed the border rules (a bit). Laid off half the crew and told the rest to “catch and release”, don’t even give an “appear in court” order. So we don’t know now where any of those are. They’re not being sent back? So they are free to roam? The poor dears need addresses of people who will take them in. They need some addresses of Lutheran Social Services traitors, and bus fare.
