A former employee of Homeland security is blowing the whistle on Homeland Security. He claims political correctness and the Obama Administration is preventing Homeland Security from investigating terrorist organizations. Why would political correctness stop the investigation of potential terrorists? This administration calls it profiling and discrimination against Muslims.
In a speech after the San Bernadino attacks, President Obama made a speech citing,
“We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam….If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate….. it is the responsibility of all Americans — of every faith — to reject discrimination. It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country. It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim Americans should somehow be treated differently.”
These words from our President sound reasonable. However, when the same administration defies reason by shutting down terrorist investigations by Homeland Security, because he feels it profiles Muslims, then you must ask yourself whether he is acting in the true interest of the United States and it people. Has political correctness taken over common sense and trumped our safety? At what point does the personal feelings of a group of terrorists become less important than the slaughter of innocent Americans going about their daily lives.
In a recent report on the Kelly File, the facts about political correctness and its negative effects into the investigation of radical Islamic terrorism was revealed.[Philip Haney’s job with HSA was to investigate individuals with suspected radicalized ties to terrorism. He had received a commendation letter for successfully tracking down 300 terrorists. When he noticed a trend of people with radicalized ties coming into the United States, he began looking into a collection of global networks that were infiltrating radical Islamists into the U.S. A year into the investigation, he was visited by the State Department and the Homeland Security Civil Rights Division. They said tracking these group and individuals was problematic because they were Islamic groups and it was considered profiling. A memo was sent out denying any investigation tied to Islamic groups. As a result, his investigation was shut down. Sixty seven of his records were deleted. Among those records were investigations into the mosque in San Bernadino which was tied to Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, responsible for the terrorist attacks in the same city. Haney said if his work had continued he may have been able to thwart the attack in San Bernadino. A year ago he notified Congress and Department of Homeland Security about these issues, yet the investigation was not re-opened and the HSA retaliated by pulling him from his duties and revoking his security clearance.]
Under the Obama administration, we have seen the dismantling of intelligence in Iraq, an executive order banning CIA “enhanced interrogations” and the closing of “black Sites. Under the Bush Administration, three suspected terrorsts were waterboarded and as a result divulged information on other terrorists responsible for the 2002 bombings in Bali and on Al Qaeda leaders. While over 100 prisoners released from Guantanamo Bay have gone back to terrorism, President Obama is still determined to release the remaining prisoners and close Gitmo. Should the United States continue to “play by the rules” when our enemies refuse to do the same?
As all Americans have witnessed of late, President Obama has no problem working up a sweat over the gun rights of American citizens and has promised to pass, by executive order, strict gun laws bypassing Congress and our Constitutional rights. Still at the forefront is the administration’s view that Global warming is our biggest national security threat, and along with Bernie Sanders, and other Democrats actually believe that climate change is the main cause of terrorism today.
The real question is why President Obama has no problems calling out lawful gun owning Americans but still refuses to link self-professed Islamic terrorism to Islam. Now, he has gone so far as to shut down actual successful terrorist investigations because they happen to involve radical Islamic Muslims and calls it profiling. God help us all!
