Visa System Failed to Flag Radical Imam

The LA Times headline reads "How Visa System Failed to Flag Lodi Imam ". However, there is not a good reason given. Still, there are some humorous aspects to the matter, now that the imam is in jail:
At an immigration hearing June 24 in San Francisco, Ahmed admitted making the anti-American speeches but said he had since completely changed his opinion about the United States, which he said he now loves and respects.

"He now regrets that he made those statements," said his attorney, Saad Ahmad.
I'll bet he does - now.

Update: I see the Daily Demarche has more inside info here and got there first. It's a real problem.
