The three terrorist strikes inside America in 2009 not only happened on Obama’s watch, but now can be directly attributed to his orders to intelligence agencies. The SRATFOR June 2009 report included this disturbing piece of information:
Several weeks ago, STRATFOR heard from sources that the FBI and other law enforcement organizations had been ordered to “back off” of counterterrorism investigations into the activities of Black Muslim converts.
This was to avoid the perception of targeting or profiling of Muslim men. Let’s call it what it is: ‘politically correct National Security‘.
Whether the agencies created this policy in ‘anticipation of what Barack Obama and Eric Holder desired’, the bottom line is any policy such as this must be approved by the White House. Recall that the Navy sharp-shooters could not rescue an American ship captain from pirates until Obama ordered it. Days went by, remember?
June: Little Rock, Arkansas
The order to the FBI to back off happened just before a black Muslim convert named Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, or Carlos Leon Bledsoe, shot two U.S. soldiers standing in front of the Little Rock, Arkansas Army Navy Career Center, killing one and severely wounding the other. Although not an uncommon name in the Arab world, in Arabic, the word mujahid is the singular form of mujahideen, and it literally means one who engages in jihad. Jihad Watch reported that the killer “had just returned from Yemen where he had studied jihad with an Islamic scholar there.”
This jihad assault was met with silence from Janet Napolitano, Barack Obama, and Eric Holder. But he was known to the FBI already, there was, as they say, ‘actionable intelligence’. He had come back to the United States from Yemen on a forged Somali passport and was targeted by the FBI.
November: Ft. Hood: Killeen, Texas
According to The Betrayal, U.S. intelligent agencies had known about Hasan’s intent to kill Americans and his contact with a top al Queda recruiter in Yemen. After opening an investigation and intercepting at least 20 emails, the FBI but deemed them harmless and
… innocent or protected by the first amendment…
Even ABC news reported additional information available to his commanders and to many others:
In a 50-page power point presentation to fellow Army doctors in 2007, Nidal Malik Hasan said the military should give Muslim soldiers the option not to fight to “decrease adverse events….on a page of “comments” in the presentation, Hasan wrote “We love life death more than (sic) you love life!”…He warned that “If Muslim groups can convince Muslims that they are fighting for God against injustices of the “infidels”; i.e. enemies of Islam, then Muslims can become a potent adversary i.e.: suicide bombing etc.”
Reporting for Obama’s transition team; under observation by the FBI; of concern to his commanders, but–‘can’t profile’. Protected by the First Amendment for political correctness?
The Betrayal reports that the FBI’s dropping Hasan came at the same time that Eric Holder declined to investigate the Black Muslim Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Philadelphia. Holder, of course, came from a law firm that defended terrorists pro bono, before he became United States Attorney General.
Thirteen American soldiers were murdered and more than 30 wounded in this massacre. We, the targets of this jihad, are supposed to look the other way, or if we’re looking, to be concerned about Hasan’s “lonely personal life” or that Americans would use this to target other Muslims.
Who is the enemy?
December: Flight 253 Detroit, Michigan
The third ‘isolated’ incident came on Christmas day on Flight 253 as it landed in Detroit, Michigan. The bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was from Nigeria, and U.S. authorities including the State Department were aware that the British had banned him from entering their country. But his visa had not been canceled.
As the real story emerges on this very close incident, there are many questions. There were two bombs on this flight, and passengers were left exposed to this for more than two hours both on the plane and in the ‘sterile’ area; a host of suspicious circumstances; at least two other people involved, and more, yet the government covers this all up and refuses to acknowledge or deny any eyewitness reports.
In an excellent analysis of Flight 253, the American Spectator conducted an interview with a State Department employee. The interview reveals the uncomfortable feeling of employees to specifically watch Muslims under Bush, but the absolute reversal of that policy to the point of sheer danger by the Obama administration:
…despite statements from the Obama Administration, such information was flagged and given higher priority during the Bush Administration, but that since the changeover “we are encouraged to not create the appearance that we are profiling or targeting Muslims. I think career employees were uncomfortable with the Bush procedures and policies and were relieved to not have to live under them any longer.”
Obama, who had been briefed on this before he went to Hawai’i, didn’t respond really, and as Lame Cherry notes, along with Napolitano had kind of an ‘unexpected’ flat response, lies at first, but strangely, as if they had expected a downed flight. Grudgingly, Obama moved from an ‘isolated event’ to blame it on al Queda; predictably, he blamed it on everyone else and will probably fire someone who was not responsible, like his janitor or something. Krauthamer disdains Obama’s nationwide address.
Don’t Forget the On-going Internal Jihad
I have personally been greatly disturbed by the rise of radical Islam within the United States which is hidden by political correctness. If anything or anyone, in my view, is killing Americans I am unforgiving, so consequently my words on this large-scale and ongoing jihad are not kind. That said, I am equally furious at Congress’ and Presidents’ past and present; and more alarmed about Obama than I have been of any person in our history. There you have my disclaimer, with respect.
As documented by Creeping Sharia, Atlas Shrugs, and Jihad Watch to name a few, there is an ongoing problem inside the United States with immigrants who are radical Islamists, and American citizens who have ‘converted’ to Islam. Where the radical, rigid adherence to sharia law exists, there is murder, child killing, and open intimidation. There is even politically correct policing, letting parents abandon children because their behavior ‘shames’ the family.
Common to all is the hiding under the American First and 14th Amendments to claim their right to free speech which advocates killing Americans. Interesting that our government now gives terrorists rights but denies them to Americans. The State Department is also in the process of issuing thousands of ‘diversity visas‘ to increase immigration from countries some of whose citizens intend to do us harm. Who is doing the background check on these people? Or are they even doing checks?
Why isn’t anyone, especially the republicans, jumping up and down over the trampling of the Constitution and the compromise of our national security? Where are the calls for investigations, the firings, the rebukes, the Congressional committees? They are all that bad. 😕
What can we conclude other than that they must be involved, or are being bribed or blackmailed, or simply just are trying to hang on to their power. The dearth of respect of or concern for America and Americans is stunning.
