Posted on 12/11/2015 1:48:32 PM PST by Rockitz
Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney gave an extensive interview to Breitbart News Daily on Friday morning, in which he discussed an investigation that might have stopped the San Bernardino jihad attackâ¦ but was scuttled by Homeland Security brass for politically-correct reasons.
âCivil Rights and Civil Liberties shut the case down because we were focusing on individuals who belong to Tablighi Jamaat,â Haney says, well-aware of how explosive this charge is.
Haney was a founding member of the Passenger Analysis Unit, or PAU, under Customs and Border Protection. Established as a stand-alone agency in 2003, the PAU is charged with âvetting, investigating, finding addresses, making connections, and putting the dots togetherâ on persons entering the United States who might be security threats.
But he wasnât on the case any moreâ¦ because his initiative was deemed politically incorrect and shut down by the Department of Homeland Securityâs Civil Rights and Civil Liberties division.
âThey came into the National Targeting Center, either physically or through emails and correspondence, and said that we could not develop cases based on association with Tablighi Jamaat, and/or any Islamic group,â Haney revealed.
He charged this decision, which runs counter to the very purpose of the Department of Homeland Security and its charter to demolish the wall of separation between law enforcement agencies, was made because âthis Administration is more concerned about the civil rights and civil liberties of foreign Islamic groups and foreign nationals than securing the freedom and security of the American public.â

ExclusiveâDHS Whistleblower Philip Haney: P.C. Killed Investigation That Might Have Stopped San Bernardino Attack
He charged this decision, which runs counter to the very purpose of the Department of Homeland Security and its charter to demolish the wall of separation between law enforcement agencies, was made because “this Administration is more concerned about the civil rights and civil liberties of foreign Islamic groups and foreign nationals than securing the freedom and security of the American public.”
He pointed to documents uncovered by a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act request tied to his whistleblower case as further support. “NTC was getting ‘pushback’ from CRCL, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and DOS [the State Department] because of our focus on this group called Tablighi Jamaat,” he repeated, inviting listeners to study the nature of this Islamist group and understand why the Administration might feel pursuing it aggressively was unacceptably insensitive to Muslims.
Haney said his superiors actually erased some of his files pertinent to the case, because they insisted the initiative had “gone in a different direction” and he was no longer authorized to add his data.
He concluded by saying his purpose in coming forward was to fix a broken intelligence system. “This isn’t about hurting anybody. This is about fixing it. We could fix it. We can fix it. That’s my focus.”
this Administration is more concerned about the civil rights and civil liberties of foreign Islamic groups and foreign nationals than securing the freedom and security of the American public.
This administration (Obama) should be tried for treason, among a plethora of other charges.
It needs to be understood that the FBI had Farook and his terrorist activities on their radar for some time. Police and FBI scanners confirm that even before the final sots were fired, they knew it was Syed Farook who was involved.
How did they know? The better question is since they did know - WHY did they just watch this happen?
How many other terrorists are operating in plain sight even now with the FBI, the NSA other agencies monitoring their every move - yet nothing is done?
To your point, has it ever been answered why CAIR had a press conference with the family of Farook before the names of the terrorist were released???
A little more complicated than he states. Great if we can fix it but probably won’t. But we need to identify those that destroyed his work, name them, shame them and possibly prosecute them civilly.
I suspect CAIR has these blanket denials in the can ready to trot out at a moments notice whenever some muzzie commits some muzzie mass murders.
They know it was islamic terrorism. They were trying to deflect.
.....to every ones detriment
IMHO this is enough to impeach and remove Obama from office.
A probable answer!
Cair members are Moderate Muslims. What is the difference between Moderate Muslims and Radical mass murdering Jihadists?
The only difference in a moderate Islamist and a radical Islamist is tactical advantage. Once they think they have it, it is jihad time for all.
Coexist's reality today!
In countries where Muslims are the minority they are obsessed with minority rights. When they are in the majority, there are no minority rights.
How depressing it is to have enemy muzzie infiltrators actively working against the good of our country imbedded in the White Mosque.
Didn’t BHO once make a slip off the tongue and say something to the effect that according to my Muslim religion etc......
At least 40 times while in public and with a camera and/or a mike on. The White Mosque Iman, Obama has defended the Muslims.
LMAO! Love it.
