Twelve years ago on 9/11 as a special agent of the FBI, I was sifting through wreckage of the symbol of American military might and leadership that had been reduced to rubble by American Airlines Flight 77 which had been commandeered by five jihadis who deliberately flew the passenger-laden Boeing 737-223 into the western side of Pentagon, instantly killing all 59 passengers, 6 crew members, and the 5 Islamic terrorists. As I collected evidence and the remains of my fellow Americans, I was enraged and determined to do everything in my power to seek out and destroy our enemy. I never dreamed that in less than twelve years America would be completely bereft of leadership and worse, giving aid and comfort to the enemy, but that is what we have today!
As we survey the rubble of American foreign policy and our incoherent domestic agenda in relation to American national security, we make a most incredible discovery–leadership of both political parties in America, through ignorance, cowardice, and outright treason, are aiding and abetting the very enemy who attacked us in our homeland on this day 12 years ago.
In the last several years we have seen the full authority of the U.S. government support: the Muslim Brotherhood in their quest to take power in Egypt; Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood “rebels” in Libya; the Taliban by holding direct talks with them and trying to appease their “concerns”; and Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood “rebels” seeking to overthrow the regime in Iranian-backed Syria.
At the same time, this Administration continues to give easily identifiable jihadis positions inside our government with access to classified systems within those agencies they work.
Departing FBI Director Robert Mueller III said in a final interview that “jihadis” are a major threat to this country, yet as Director the FBI gave official awards to known jihadis like Mohamed Magid (President of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Society of North America), Yahya Hendi (a leader on the Muslim Brotherhood’s Fiqh Council of North America), and so many others. In open testimony to Congress, Director Mueller admitted to being ignorant of the significant fact that the Islamic Society of Boston (a subsidiary of ISNA) where one of the Marathon bombers attended was founded by Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi. During his tenure, Mueller hosted many meetings at FBI HQ with known jihadis such as the leaders of Hamas in America (CAIR) and others.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has proven to be either grossly incompetent or a willful agent of our enemies. Over the past several years she has directly changed or created DHS policy based on the complaints or recommendation of the jihadi leadership from the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. From removing words DHS and other government employees can use to describe the jihad threat (you can’t say “jihadi”) to their “Building Bridges” campaign with the Brotherhood’s Muslim Public Affairs Council, to shutting down all fact-based training regarding the jihadi threat, to defending Muslim Brother Mohammed Elibiary in open testimony before Congress, our enemies couldn’t have it better if Mullah Omar was the DHS chief.
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs has proven to be no more competent or faithful to his Oath to the Constitution. General Dempsey has demonstrated his willingness to avoid his duties while ensuring the enemy gets a pass within the military by shutting down all training which honestly and factually assesses the enemy. His decision over a year ago to cease all training In the military and “review it” to ensure it was not “offensive” – a move prompted by complaints to the White House from Hamas (CAIR) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council – makes it impossible for the military to understand the real threat we face. General Dempsey may want to keep in mind that the truth is always offensive to those who don’t have it. He may also want to note that when ordered to violate his Oath, he always has the option to step down.
Where are those men and women of courage in our government?
They exist. Most of them seem to come from the Republican party – leaders like Michelle Bachmann, Chip Cravaack, Louie Gohmert and others. When they do speak out, however,it is their own party that bashes them.
When members of Congress led by Congresswoman Bachmann, asked for Inspectors General to investigate the Muslim Brotherhood penetration of our government, it was men like John McCain, John Boehner, and Marco Rubio who stood up and, absent any facts, condemned this action.
Today we face a decision on what to do in Syria. Not much of a decision really…jihadists in the form of Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and others, are trying to overthrow the totalitarian government of Syria. No good side here folks.
When Senator John McCain publicly says the Syrian rebels he met with are “moderate” he is telling the jihadi world “I have no idea what i am doing,” because the very individual he met with are jihadis.
Recently, the President of the United Stated filmed a video openly supporting the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the leading Muslim Brotherhood organization in America, and proven to be a financial support entity for Hamas in the US v Holy Land Foundation trial (Dallas, 2008), the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial in U.S. history. The President either does not know this – evidence he and his staff are grossly incompetent – or he does know this, in which case he is willfully aiding and abetting our enemy.
As we honor the dead on this 9/11 anniversary, we can best honor them by holding our leadership accountable. We are coming to a time in this nation where citizens must decide if the future of their children or grandchildren is worth something. If it is, we must confront our enemies – some of whom hold elective office.
