"He admits that he knowingly believed he was smuggling violent jihadists into the United States with the full knowledge that if the decision was made by the (specially designated global terrorist groups) ... these jihadists would commit violent acts in and against the United States," the AP report quoted a US Justice Department memo as saying.
