Earlier today, we reported that Ahmad Khan Rhami traveled to the Pakistan in 2013.  But major media outlets are reporting he took multiple trips to Afghanistan.  Yes, he went to Afghanistan but he traveled across the border to Pakistan where he was radicalized.  DML’s investigating shows he was in Pakistan with his brother in 2013.     The peanut trail….

Ahmad was born on Jan. 23, 1988, in Afghanistan. He is a naturalized citizen who had been living with his family in Elizabeth, New Jersey. People who know him say that several years ago Khan traveled to his homeland and when he returned to the U.S, he showed signs of radicalization.  Looking at his brother’s Facebook page (Mohammad Khan R.), there is no question the boys are radicals.

The FBI was also investigating whether a second person might have helped him carry out his bombings. Perhaps it’s the brother?

Before identifying how we tracked Ahmad back to being in Pakistan, it’s important to note that Khan’s family had issues with the city of Elizabeth, NJ in the past.  The issues are connected to the operation of their family restaurant, First American Fried Chicken.

The restaurant was opened by Khan’s father 10-years ago, and his only employees were his sons.    Originally, the establishment was open 24-hours a day, but complaints from neighbors forced authorities to take action against the family.  Complaints included disturbances brought on by rowdy crowds that would gather at the establishment after midnight.  The city council passed an ordinance that would force the restaurant to close at 10pm.   However, Khan’s family did not follow the ordinance.

Police eventually approached the family and told them they had to shut down the restaurant.  At that point, Khan’s older brother got in a fight with a police officer and was arrested.  Immediately thereafter the son fled to Afghanistan.

In 2011, Ahmad, his brother Mohammad, and their father sued the town claiming discrimination.  The suit went nowhere.

As you read further, and you see these pictures and posts, you have to ask how the FBI missed another so easy to detect terrorist.

As for DML’s investigation, we start by looking into the social media trail left by Khan’s brother.

STEP ONE:  Go to First American Chickens Facebook page and you will find this post:

Mohammad stated the First American Chicken Restaurant was his first home.  The family lives above the restaurant.

STEP 2:  Go to Mohammad’s Facebook page.
Scroll down to posts from 2013.
There is a picture of two men.  One of them is reacting to something above his head — the man reacting is Ahmad.


In the event you doubt the person in the picture is Ahmad, do the comparison.


screen-shot-2016-09-19-at-3-47-16-pmAt about the same time as the above picture was posted, there are other posts claiming that Mohammad was in “Quetta” at that multiple bombs were going off.

Quetta is in Pakistan.

Afghanistan is located next to Pakistan.  So obviously he traveled to Afghanistan but then traveled to Pakistan.  How the FBI didn’t catch this is troubling considering the other posts on the page leave no question.


There are numerous posts on the Mohammad Khan Facebook page showing a hatred for America and a complete radicalization.
