Two members of the Harakat-ul-Jihad-i-Islami Bangladesh terror group were captured last year illegally crossing into the United States from Mexico. One of the Islamic radicals posted bail and then went missing.
Great work, Homeland Security!
The Blaze reported, via Free Republic:
Two men of Bangladeshi origin were caught by Customs and Border Protection illegally crossing the US-Mexico border last June and admitted they were members of a terrorist organization that allied with Bin Laden against America.
Now, it appears at least one of those men is free after posting bail and claiming asylum. And the Department of Homeland security has no idea where he is.

The information is according to a report this week by Pajamas Media, which gives some background on these suspected terrorists:
“The two men, Muhammad Nazmul Hasan and Mirza Muhammad Saifuddin, were intercepted near Naco, Arizona, not long after they had crossed the border on June 25, 2010. During their interrogation, one of the men admitted that they were members of Harakat-ul-Jihad-i-Islami Bangladesh (HuJI-B), which was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in February 2008.”
The State Department designated HuJI-B as a terrorist organization in 2008. The group has a long history of deadly bombings against India, and wages Jihad alongside other terrorist organizations with the goal of a global caliphate.
