LEST there be any tsk, tskers, this site has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that DHS, under the reins of HUSSEIN Obama, has become an anti-security behemoth, as opposed to a homeland security agency. De facto, each and every agency under its umbrella – whether directly or indirectly – becomes equally tainted.
AS recently as March 2, 2016, the following was blared from these pages:
ONE would have to possess rocks for brains – or be sitting on them – to publicly take DHS to task in a frontal manner without requisite due diligence. Now, while there are those who disagree with this and that contained within these pages, it is well-known that this investigative journalist is far from stupid or reckless in nature. Not at all.
THUS, when an “in the know” (former) DHS birdie started whispering in these ears, rest assured, said droppings were checked out with all due deliberation. And as to why certain sorts are comfortable confiding in this direction, it would be inordinately stupid and reckless to comment on such matters publicly. Let’s just leave it at that.
MOVING right along, yes, it was soon after Janet Napolitano, aka “Mama Janet”, was appointed head of DHS in 2009 (until 2013) that it became clear that her task was to take the focus off of the real threats inside America, instead, creating a distraction via a bogeyman and a bugaboo. Say whaaat??
IN this regard, she COMPLETELY ignored – by Allah-washing – Islamic terror/militant jihad as America’s main strategic and long-range threat. True to an inveterate liar’s playbook, she changed/reversed the discussion by fingering patriotic Americans and the U.S. military as “public enemy” number one! Imagine that. So, as one of HUSSEIN Obama’s main hatchet women – alongside commie/Islamist Valerie Jarrett – out of the gate, in April 2009, who recalls her bold-faced “threat assessment” report?
The initiative, dubbed Operation Vigilant Eagle, was outlined in February, two months before a memo giving a similar warning was issued on April 7 by the Department of Homeland Security.
Disclosure of the DHS memo this week has sparked controversy among some conservatives and veterans groups. Appearing on television talk shows Thursday,Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano defended the assessment, but apologized to veterans who saw it as an accusation….continue reading the whole dreadful situation…
BUT while one is free to ignore the warnings found within, one is hard pressed to ignore whistle blowers from deep inside the belly of the beast, and there have been numerous. Just take a peek within. Yes, DHS and its Mafia-like tentacles!
MORE indicting, the FBI is a prime example of said submission to jihad, as part of DHS’s domestic arm under HUSSEIN Obama’s directives: hands off the “religion of peace”!
OMINOUSLY, when it comes to counterterrorism and counterintelligence operations, it is beyond obvious that the stakes are inordinately high. And the very fact that the FBI and DHS have numerous co-joining investigative teams, most of which deal with counterterrorism and cyber security, well, if 1 + 1 still = 2….You got that?
INDUBITABLY, while said inter-agency collaboration would be a valuable force multiplier under a patriotic leadership, such is incontestably not the case. Making matters exponentially worse, it was not as if the nation was well-positioned to fight Islamic jihadists pre-9/11/01. Not at all.
WHO recalls the heretofore disastrous “wall” set up by Jamie Gorelick, that which barred information and intelligence-sharing between local law enforcement and the FEDS? Still yet, the fact remains that the damage accrued by the wall pre- 9/11/01 (btw, it was a major contributory factor, and Gorelick had the out-sized gall to sit on the 9/11 Commission…talk about foxes guarding the hen house, where the right hand didn’t know what intel the left possessed, thus, working with operational blindfolds) makes what is going on within DHS (since 2008) look like child’s play.
INEXORABLY, since then, Sunni ISIS has arisen from its progenitor, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). On the Shia side, Iran has effectively joined the “nuclear club”, all credit to Obama’s “House of Bribes.” Does any rational individual believe that they won’t share their WND’s with anyone able to get the job done, be they Sunni terrorists or Iran’s Shia proxy arms? Yes, this site defies anyone to argue otherwise.
ALONG this treacherous terrain, it is comforting (in an odd manner) that anothermajor whistle blower is confirming what has been asserted at this site from its (2012) inception. Yup. The hope is that a million plus strong – and highly outraged – public will become a real force multiplier to turn things around before it is too late.
As a recently retired Department of Homeland Security officer, Philip Haneyclosely followed the investigation of the massacre in San Bernardino last December carried out by Syed Farook and his Saudi Arabian wife, Tashfeen Malik.
When the name of the Southern California mosque attended by Farook turned up in a news story days after the attack, Haney sat straight up in his chair and yelled at his computer screen: “That’s my case!”
As he recounts in his new book chronicling his remarkably eventful 14 years as a founding DHS member, “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad,” Haney had developed a case on a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaat
The case drew the “concern” of the State Department and the DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office. Not because it alerted frontline officers to a threat to the nation’s security, but because the Obama administration believed it unfairly singled out Muslims.
To the astonishment of Haney and many of his colleagues at the National Targeting Center – which provides background and actionable intelligence to Customs and Border Protection agents – the Obama administration ultimately shut down the case.
The intelligence was ignored despite having been used to connect members of the movement to terrorist organizing and financing at the highest levels, including for Hamas and al-Qaida.
In addition, 67 records of individuals and organizations linked to the case that Haney had compiled were completely eliminated by orders from “upper management.”
But not only did the administration effectively quash the case, it launched the first of what turned out to be nine investigations against him.
The “adverse actions” culminated with a Justice Department probe into his handling of information related to the Boston Marathon bombing. (The episode, recounted in the book, casts astonishing, new light on the Boston attack, exposing the lengths the government will go to protect its narrative and relationships with dubious “allies.”)
While Haney eventually was exonerated, the repeated actions against him – all while he was receiving awards and commendations from his immediate superiors acknowledging his excellent work far beyond the call of duty – took a toll on him and his family, and he decided to honorably retire at the end of July 2015.
But as Haney says, the oath he took to defend the nation is still on active duty, and along with writing his book with co-author Art Moore, a WND news editor, he is now free to communicate his chief message: “Take the politically correct handcuffs off of law enforcement and military, and let us do our job.”
Shortly after the San Bernardino massacre, when it became clear that the information Haney compiled in the Tablighi Jamaat case might have prevented the attack, Haney had a telephone conversation with a former supervisor.
Recalling the administration’s handling of the case, which they worked on together, the supervisor said, “All I could think about were the families of the people who were killed by Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik.”
He is one of many of Haney’s colleagues who have thanked him for speaking out on their behalf through his new book, “See Something, Say Nothing,” which officially launches May 24 but is available now.
These DHS officers on the front lines contend that concern for the civil rights and civil liberties of foreigners and groups that are on record stating they intend to destroy Western civilization from within are taking precedent over national security. Law-enforcement officers who take their oath seriously are hindered and sometimes punished by a politically motivated administration, they say.
In short, they believe the nation’s security strategies and tactics are fundamentally flawed, allowing the enemy not only to come and go across its borders but also to help formulate its policies.
Whether it’s a case of deliberately ignoring the threat indicators or being blind to them because of ideological biases, ultimately, the consequences are lives lost, and if it continues, some fear, civilizational collapse.
The notion of any civilizational consequences seemed hyperbolic to many Europeans not long ago. But a new, sobering realization is settling in among the continent’s intelligentsia in the aftermath of the Paris and Brussels attacks as they try to cope with a mounting wave of immigrants who instead of integrating into Europe’s storied cultures seem bent on destroying them.
After Brussels, some European intelligence and law enforcement officers who spoke up sounded like Philip Haney, revealing they are being hindered from doing their jobs by politicians imposing a politically correct orthodoxy that obscures the true nature of the threat.
Stranger than fiction
If it were concocted by a fiction writer, Haney’s story of being in the center of so many of the Department of Homeland Security’s seminal events would be dismissed as an implausible narrative.
But it’s a true story that Haney, with a background in scientific research, documented meticulously throughout his career. And unlike so many today who remain silent either because of ideology or fear of reprisal, he embraced his agency’s stated directive, “If you see something, say something.”
Here are some of the things he saw that are told in vivid detail in “See Something”:
- How the Bush administration stripped him and other frontline officers of their ability to define the threat;
- How much the Obama administration knew in advance of the Boston Marathon bombing and how it launched an ongoing cover-up on behalf of a major ally;
- The administration’s stealth policy to protect Islamic leaders with supremacist beliefs and violent-jihadist ties, allowing them to freely travel between the U.S. and the Middle East;
- The access to the White House and classified information given to members of Muslim Brotherhood front groups;
- The damning intelligence on Muslim Brotherhood-linked leaders invited to sit at the table and help form national-security policy;
- The “words matter” memo imposing the demands of radical U.S. Muslims leaders on the DHS, including stripping intelligence and official communications of any mention of Islam in association with terrorism;
- The purging of training material that casts Islam in a negative light;
- The erasing and altering of vital intelligence on terrorists and terror threats;
- The fear-based tactics imposed by the Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. and their accomplices that paralyze officials, members of Congress and any Department of Homeland Security employee who dares to expose or resist their agenda.
INEXTRICABLY, if the accepted definition of subversive action stands as is,
An attempt to transform the established social order and its structures of power, authority, and hierarchy. Subversion (Latin subvertere: overthrow) refers to a process by which the values and principles of a system in place are contradicted or reversed
look no further than to DHS under Obama Inc. as EXHIBIT NUMBER ONE, and no less a classic textbook case model. Even more so, when future generations gravitate toward the discipline of security studies (which is well honed by this investigative journalist), know that if the historical record reflects what really went down under the anti-American regime of HUSSEIN Obama, the many analyses from both domestic and geo-political perspectives, will, by extrapolation, parallel that of the worst subversive elements against freedom in recorded time.
NO doubt. Let this blog record reflect as such.
