Afgan Interruptors


Dear Mr. Obama,

There is a man by the name of Hayat who was an Afgan Interruptor for American companies in Afghanistan. He applied to the State Department to get a Visa to come to the United States. This was well over a year ago. He's now been in hiding, as the Taliban have killed his family members and are actively seeking to kill him. This is a travesty. He should have been sent state side as soon as it became apparent that his and his family's lives were in danger. Instead, the State Department said he was "too important." So were the members of his family that are now dead. He recently contacted the State Department, but they didn't even know what his case number was. This tells me that those handling this have failed to give this the priority it deserves. These Interruptors deserve much more consideration than they've been given. Without them, this war would have been far different, and not for the better, possibly causing considerably more deaths to Americans than that which we've already suffered. Additionally, those that have managed to make it here have been treated poorly by our government, being given housing in the worst, highest crime areas in our country instead of the appreciation they deserve. I for one, am more than willing to house this man in my home while he gets back on his feet.

With Upmost Respect,
Jeffrey Bohemier
