Clinton crony Sandy Berger, who endangered the nation as its national security adviser, died the other day without being fully punished for pilfering documents from the 9/11 commission in an attempt to cover his ass as well as the hineys of the Clintons. The 9/11 commission found that bureaucratic gamesmanship prevented the FBI and CIA from comparing the notes that could have avoided 9/11.
So what did President George Walker Bush do in the wake of 9/11? He created another Cabinet-level bureaucracy called Homeland Security. He also did not fire the heads of the CIA or the FBI. The message to the bureaucracy was clear: Screw up the assignment and you will be rewarded with an even larger bureaucracy, and no one will ever be held accountable. Small wonder federal employees can sit around watching porn all day.
We have learned nothing since 9/11. Not one thing. Our enemies grow strong. Their women and small children laugh at us. Our government is more concerned about protect their rights than protecting the nation. That's because the politicians listen to CAIR's false cries of "Islamophobia" than the very real concerns of Flyover America.
Consider this from a piece on November 23, 2015, from Kyle Shideler, director of the Threat Information Office at the Center for Security Policy, called "U.S. Officials Can’t Ask Syrian Refugees Key Questions":
[We prohibit] law enforcement from asking key questions about how an individual views jihadist ideologues, such as Anwar Awlaki, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, or Yusuf al Qaradawi. That’s vital when such jihadi scholars have played roles in influencing terror attacks.
For example, support and admiration for Awlaki was key to terror cases including the Christmas Day underwear bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, the Charlie Hebdo killers, and the more recent Chattanooga Recruiting Center shooter.
Yet during an investigation into Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hassan before his attack, the FBI described email correspondence from Hassan to Awlaki as “not pertinent” to the investigation.
In 2011, the Civil Rights Civil Liberties division of DHS launched an investigation into multiple Customs and Border Protection agents, because of complaints by groups like Hamas-linked Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) that agents were asking individuals questions about their affiliation with Islamic organizations (including those linked to the Muslim Brotherhood), or attendance at conferences where pro-jihadist ideologues are known to have spoken.
According to DHS authorities, one officer was being investigated because he had asked for an individual’s view of Anwar al-Awlaki. In another, FBI agents referenced the underwear bombing plot. Even that much was considered offensive.CAIR is in charge, not we the people. We have to quit allowing CAIR and liberals to intimidate us. We must get a pair and stand up to the enemies within -- including the bureaucracy.
