Refugee Resettlement Watch is an organization that monitors and draws public attention to the wholesale resettlement of Iraqi “refugees” in the United States.
Congress, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that the USA is going to lose the war in Iraq just as it did in Vietnam, and is therefore expecting the Iraqi equivalent of the “boat people”. The solution? Let’s allow all Iraqi citizens who worked for or had contact with the Americans in Iraq — which means many thousands of people — to resettle in the United States with the minimum of background screening. It’s an invitation to Islamists to put on a refugee disguise and slip through the golden door into the heart of the Great Satan.
And now it seems that something similar has happened to Denmark. According to today’s Copenhagen Post:
Iraqi spies worked for Denmark
A military intelligence source reveals that Iraqi interpreters working for the Danish army in Iraq were spies for insurgent groups
At least three Iraqi interpreters working for the Danish troops in Iraq were spies for insurgents, according to a high-level Danish intelligence official, reports Nyhedsavisen newspaper.
The former head of Danish intelligence in Iraq, Major Torsten Lind Thomsen, claimed that no background security checks were ever made on the Iraqi interpreters working for the Danes.
‘I was told to keep my hands off their backgrounds. At the time, officials were under enormous pressure due to the media coverage,’ he said, referring to the political drama that unfolded last summer when the interpreters faced persecution and possible death in Iraq.
Amid pressure from human rights organisations, the public and the press, the government granted most of the Iraqi interpreters asylum in Denmark. [emphasis added]

Thomsen halted his investigation but handed over his findings to the British intelligence in Basra when the Danes left Iraq.
According to Thomsen, three different sources last summer provided the Danish intelligence services with concrete evidence that three interpreters were in collusion with the militia group JAM.
‘According to my sources, two interpreters leaked information to JAM due to sympathies with their cause while the third did it for money,’ said Thomsen, whose claims are backed by an anonymous high-level official.
Some 306 out of 373 interpreters and their families were granted asylum last August.
The Danish People’s Party are now demanding that they be investigated to determine if there could be spies among the country’s new residents.
The Defence Ministry has confirmed that the interpreters’ backgrounds were checked upon their arrival in Denmark.
No initial background checks. Enormous political pressure. Multicultural ideology. White guilt.
It’s a poisonous mix.
