Former DHS employee: Obama administration concerns about political correctness paving way for radical Islamic terrorists


Former Department of Homeland Security employee Philip Haney says the Obama administration is more concerned about preserving the rights of those with known terrorist ties than ensuring the safety of the American people, as the president terminated a DHS terrorist-monitoring program that would have placed San Bernardino terror suspect Farooq Saeed on the no-fly list.

The Hill has a piece written by Haney:

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.

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 …

At the National Targeting Center, one of the premier organizations formed to “connect the dots,” I played a major role in an investigation into this trans-national Islamist network. We created records of individuals, mosques, Islamic Centers and schools across the United States that were involved in this radicalization effort. The Dar Al Uloom Al Islamiyah Mosque in San Bernardino was affiliated with this network and we had identified a member of it in our investigation. Farook frequented that mosque and was well-known to the congregation and mosque.

It’s time for President Obama to rethink the disastrous policies that have paved the way for radical Islamists to terrorize innocent civilians. Click here to get involved and help us send the message enough is enough!
