A Dearborn man who emigrated to the U.S. from Lebanon as a teenager pleaded guilty Monday to lying about his plans to travel back to his homeland and fight for the Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah.

In fact, the evidence now suggests Mohammad Hassan Hamdan may have been a terrorist before he ever came to America and settled in Michigan at the age of 15.

The implications of Hamdan’s admission at a time when the U.S. government is bringing in tens of thousands of supposedly highly screened refugees from jihadist hotbeds in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia are huge.

Hamdan, now 24, admitted he initially lied in March 2014 when he told federal agents he was going to Lebanon to “get his teeth fixed,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Detroit News reported.

Hamdan was arrested just before he was ready to board a flight on Sunday, March 16, 2014, at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

On Monday, he admitted telling an FBI confidential source that he was going to Lebanon to join Hezbollah and fight in Syria, according to prosecutors. As a Shiite, he planned to fight on behalf of the Syrian regime of Bashar Assad, who is Shiite, defending it against the Sunni rebels that include the Islamic State, al-Nusra Front and other factions, the Arab-American News reported.
