A jihadi investigation by one of the founding members of the DHS was stopped by them because it supposedly “violated the civil rights” of certain Islamic groups, according to an interview with Fox News.
The DHS has also been accused of deleting intelligence records relating to those groups. Would his information have prevented the San Bernardino killings? He believes it would.
“The administration was more concerned about the civil rights and liberties of foreign Islamic groups with terrorist ties than the safety and security of Americans.” Phil Haney, former DHS employee
Phil Haney was one of the original members of the DHS after the 9-11 attacks. It was his job to analyze passenger lists to see whether people were connected to terror organizations.
Haney’s jihadi investigation
The Daily Mail wrote,
Haney explained that he began investigating dozens of individuals with links to a fundamentalist Pakistani group called the Deobandi Movement, and its sub-groups al-Huda and Tablighi Jamaat.
He claims the groups were using the visa waiver program to move suspected radicalized individuals in and out of the U.S. and so he began tracking them, entering their details into a DHS database.
San Bernardino connections
Farook attended the Darul Uloom Mosque in Riverside, CA that is connected to the above Deobandi school of Islam. His wife was known to associate with the al-Huda group in Pakistan. Hatred for America, all the way around.
Stopped and disciplined by the DHS
Haney stated that the DHS halted his year long jihadi investigation because that group was “not specifically created for terrorism,” and therefore its rights were being violated.
When he questioned their actions, they “sequestered him” and removed him from all databases by revoking his security clearance in September of 2014.
Whose side are they on?
He maintains that if his investigation had been allowed to continue, the San Bernardino shootings could have been prevented.
The Department of Homeland Security claims that Mr. Haney’s allegations have a lot of “holes,” but refused to comment further, citing “privacy” issues.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the government was as concerned about the civil rights of ordinary Americans being violated as it is about dangerous Islamic groups?
Any group which advocates Shariah law above the United States Constitution is illegal, and should be prosecuted. But we know that won’t happen, don’t we?
