Case Scenario for Immigration

No immigration system can be completely foolproof, but it does not have to be. Even if only some of those individuals can be detained by our immigration system, it is possible that whatever conspiracy they are part of could be uncovered.

The attempted car bombing of Times Square on May 1, 2010, was a planned terrorist attack which was foiled when two street vendors discovered a car bomb and alerted a New York Police Department (NYPD) patrolman to the threat after they spotted smoke coming from a vehicle] The bomb had been ignited, but failed to explode, and was disarmed before it caused any casualties.

2010 Times Square car bombing attempt perpetrator Faisal Shahzad had been listed on a U.S. government travel-lookout list since 1999, because he had brought large amounts of cash (approximately $82,500) in increments of about $20,000 into the U.S. between January 1999 and April 2008.

On July 3, 2009, he reportedly traveled to Pakistan. While in Pakistan, he said he trained, including explosives bomb-making training, at a terrorist training camp in Waziristan, according to American officials and the complaint against him.

iCognative technology could have been effectively applied by Immigration officials in this case to detect Faisal Shahzad’s explosives bomb-making training, at a terrorist training camp as well as his knowledge and role in terrorist financing.
