The San Bernardino Killers

If Barack Obama were trying to ensure that Islam would succeed in killing Americans on American soil, how would the policies he is pursuing look any different? There was a time when an American president doing what is alleged—and almost certainly true—in the article by former DHS investigator Phillip Haney, would have not only been grounds for immediate impeachment and conviction, but the basis for a charge of treason. Our Department of Justice has, under Mr. Obama, become so corrupt such charges are impossible, and don’t get me started about Congress. But by all means, read Haney’s article at The Hill.  I provide some pertinent excerpts here:

There are terrorists in our midst and they arrived here using legal means right under the noses of the federal law enforcement agencies whose mission is to stop them. That is not due to malfeasance or lack of effort on the part of these officers; it is due to the restrictions placed on them by the Obama administration.

Remember that the FBI has admitted that it has active terror investigations ongoing in all 50 states, though apparently not the other seven of which Mr. Obama has exclusive knowledge.

I was a firsthand witness to how these policies deliberately prevented scrutiny of Islamist groups. The two San Bernardino jihadists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, may have benefited from the administration’s closure of an investigation I initiated on numerous groups infiltrating radicalized individuals into this country.

The rest of the article explains in some detail the evidence Haney and other dedicated Americans accumulated, evidence that would have saved American lives. Not in Barack Obama’s fundamentally transformed America.

But after more than six months of research and tracking; over 1,200 law enforcement actions and more than 300 terrorists identified; and a commendation for our efforts; DHS shut down the investigation at the request of the Department of State and DHS’ own Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Division. They claimed that since the Islamist groups in question were not Specially Designated Terrorist Organizations (SDTOs) tracking individuals related to these groups was a violation of the travelers’ civil liberties. These were almost exclusively foreign nationals: When were they granted the civil rights and liberties of American citizens?

Worse still, the administration then went back and erased the dots we were diligently connecting. Even as DHS closed my investigation, I knew that data I was looking at could prove significant to future counterterror efforts and tried to prevent the information from being lost to law enforcement. In 2013, I met with the DHS Inspector General in coordination with several members of Congress to attempt to warn the American people’s elected representatives about the threat.

For his diligence, for daring to identify imminent threats to the very lives of Americans, Haney was continually censured and harassed.

By all means, take the link and read the rest, but be sure you’ve taken your blood pressure meds first. And then take this link, and read about the case of Dr. Gershon Pincus, and see how the Obama Administration is protecting us from terrorists.

Who is Dr. Pincus? He’s a dentist, who, at 60, decided he wanted to help our military and took a job treating our military members near his home. As is normal procedure, he underwent a security interview, which he passed. So far so good? Not quite, for Dr. Pincus is a Jew, you see.

He was soon subjected to a second interview that revealed he has relatives in Israel, relatives with whom he regularly speaks. He has even visited them in Israel, our ally, but Not Mr. Obama’s ally. Security clearance denied.

Funny, I don’t recall Americans being killed by Jewish terrorists on American soil. Ever. You?

Ready for one more blood pressure raising excursion? Visit this article by the invaluable and ridiculously lovely Michelle Malkin, which will go a very long way to explain why the Department of Homeland Security is far more interested in promoting Islam then in saving American lives.

We’ll be fortunate to survive the final year of Obama’s reign, and so will our allies.
