A Department of Homeland Security whistleblower is speaking out about how the Obama Administration is working hard to cover terrorist trails in an attempt to be politically correct.
In 2009, President Obama was more focused on targeting the “right wing extremism” of the tea party and veterans than on national security. While the IRS was targeting tea party groups and their members, a DHS whistleblower was ordered to delete or edit hundreds of files of people linked to Islamic terrorism. Philip Haney was ordered to do this one month before the underwear bomber tried to take down a commercial airplane.
Haney contends this action has had devastating consequences. The deleted information and the scrapping of the program has helped terrorist blend in and create havoc here in the US.
“As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (May 2010), Detroit “honor killing” perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015).
It is very plausible that one or more of the subsequent terror attacks on the homeland could have been prevented if more subject matter experts in the Department of Homeland Security had been allowed to do our jobs back in late 2009. It is demoralizing—and infuriating—that today, those elusive dots are even harder to find, and harder to connect, than they were during the winter of 2009.”
Haney’s story is rather damning. He said the Obama Administration essentially tied the hands of those attempting to protect American citizens. “Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.”
It was also in 2009 that the White House called of for “jihadist” to be replaced with “extremist” as it is seen to be offensive to some Muslims. This strange coddling took place at the same time as conservatives were being targeted.
Nancy Pelosi seems to be in lockstep with Obama’s priorities. At the National Prayer breakfast she quoted Muhammad.
Where do you think Obama and Pelosi’s priorities are? Do they care about protecting Americans? Please share your thoughts.
