Uzbek refugee admits he wanted to kill California prison warden by slitting his throat

This is one of those stories I’m sick of writing about.  I’ve followed Fazliddin Kurbanov’s ‘career’ since his arrest in Idaho in 2013.

He is one of those Uzbeks that we have admitted to the US since the Bush Administration who were already radical Islamists back home, and why we took hundreds is still a mystery. Rumor is that the CIA and State Department teamed up to get them here.

This is the latest at The Sun (San Bernardino):

By the way, some stories just list him as an “Uzbek national” but others, like ABC here have it right.  He was a refugee, now he will cost US taxpayers a fortune as we care for him in prison!

An Uzbek national already serving a 25-year terrorism-related sentence has entered a guilty plea for trying to slit the throat of the warden of the Victorville federal prison in a 2016 attack.

From Kurbanov’s earlier facebook page.

Fazliddin Kurbanov, 34, faces sentencing on June 4 before United States District Judge Virginia A. Phillips in Los Angeles after he entered a guilty plea Tuesday, March 13, to one count of attempted murder of a federal officer. 

Kurbanov attacked then-Warden Calvin Johnson of the Victorville Federal Correctional Institute on May 31, 2016 in a dining facility, where Johnson was standing “near the serving line to be accessible to inmates during the lunch service” court papers said.

Kurbanov, armed with an approximately 4-inch prison-made shank, grabbed Johnson from behind and tried to cut the warden’s throat; when Johnson raised his hands to protect his throat, Kubanov instead slashed the warden on his left side, the document said.

Kurbanov admitted in an interview with authorities that he had made the shank, found a way to conceal it, and intended to kill Johnson with it, the court papers said. The attack took place five months after Kurbanov was sentenced in the terrorism case in Idaho.

Johnson was seriously injured in the attack, but has recovered and is now working at another prison in the federal system, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Los Angeles said in a statement.

Obama’s US Attorney for Idaho, Wendy Olson, was concerned with American rabble that might act up during Kurbanov’s 2015 trial!

In January 2016, Kurbanov was sentenced to 25 years in prison for for conspiring and attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and possessing an unregistered destructive device. He was convicted after a trial.

Prosecutors in that case said Kurbanov made contact with a website for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and discussed with the website administrator “his animosity toward Americans, particularly the military; his desire to build a bomb; possible targets in the United States, including military bases in Idaho and Texas; and his need for instruction on how to construct and remotely detonate a bomb,” according to a statement by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Idaho.

He also discussed possible targets with an FBI confidential source, including the United States Military Academy at West Point, the prosecutor’s office said.

His Idaho trial came at a time when tensions began to rise in that state about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program. The US attorney and others went to great lengths to minimize the news about the trial.

  1. Not a mystery. We had a president named “Hussein” who hung out with Farrakhan and hated America. No mystery at all.

  2. Uzbek Idaho ‘refugee’ attempts to slit throat of CA prison warden, ends up seriously stabbing in side. Your ‘refugee’ program tax dollars working for you!


    1. I’ll check now to see if wordpress offers the option because I don’t actually put those share things there…wordpress does.


  3. What I find bizarre, is how many muslims we’ve imported post-9-11. You’d think we’d get less. 2 women in my area arrested, possibly to be charged with a HATE crime, for disparaging Islam! I don’t like what the women did, but free speech? Does that not exist anymore?? What a travesty our laws have become.

    1. There are left wingers in the US that think just like the leaders in the EU that that have allowed their countries to be over run by Muslums from Africa as well as the Middle East they are paying a heavy price for allowing that to happen as we will if all of the refugee programs are not shut. These people all think just like this killer in the in the above article. The millions in taxpayer dollars the these organizations are given that goes into their bank accounts need to stopped or our prisons will be stuffed with nut cases like the one above.
