The FBI and other law enforcement agencies have received a great deal of criticism during the past year, some of it merited, so it is only fair to recognize their successes as well. This Washington Times article does a good job of explaining the fingerprinting project currently underway. Among other things, it says that two al Qaede members were detained while trying to enter the U.S. because their fingerprints matched prints lifted from papers in Afghanistan caves.
While in a sense this is not surprising, it is rather chilling to know for sure that terrorists who fled Afghanistan have succeeded in making their way to the U.S. And it is highly unlikely that these two were the only ones.
