The evidence is mounting....and Rep. Bachmann is telling the truth. I believe she's going to need some backup or she will be taken down.
FBI, DOJ Sued for Info on Mueller's Secret Meeting with Radical Islamic Organizations
Political correctness puts our national security at risk. Case in point: The FBI's persistent kowtowing to radical Muslims in its approach to terrorism investigations.
I’ve written previously about the FBI’s Muslim sensitivity training programs. WorldNetDaily has done some outstanding reporting on workshops run by the FBI that “educate” agents about Muslim customs and beliefs in an attempt to help them to “break down barriers” and foster “mutual understanding.”
Well, now it appears the FBI has taken another giant step down a very dangerous path with FBI Director Robert Mueller’s secret meeting with radical Islamic organizations and allowing them effectively to “edit” the FBI’s training manuals.
Last week we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) seeking access to records detailing a February 8, 2012, meeting between FBI Director Robert Mueller and Muslim organizations. Judicial Watch is also investigating the FBI’s subsequent controversial decision to purge the agency’s training curricula of material deemed “offensive” to Muslims.
On March 7, 2012, Judicial Watch submitted FOIA requests to the FBI and the DOJ seeking access to records regarding the meeting. We’re after “any and all records setting criteria or guidelines for FBI curricula on Islam or records identifying potentially offensive material within the FBI curricula on Islam,” and any directives to withdraw FBI presentations and curricula on Islam.
We’ve also asked for records of communications between the Office of the Attorney General and several entities, including the Obama White House, the Executive Office of the President, and Muslim organizations, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Society of North America, and the Council for American-Islamic Relations regarding the FBI’s curricula on Islam.
The FBI acknowledged receipt of our FOIA request on March 20, 2012, and was required to respond by May 1, 2012. The DOJ acknowledged receiving Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on March 14, 2012, and was required to respond by April 11, 2012. But so far, after months, we’ve received nothing from either agency.
During the February 8 meeting, Mueller reportedly assured the Islamic groups in attendance that the agency had ordered the removal of presentations and curricula that were deemed “offensive” from FBI offices around the country. As reported by NPR, overall, “The FBI has completed a review of offensive training material and has purged 876 pages and 392 presentations, according to a briefing provided to lawmakers.”
The material purge was allegedly initiated in response to a letter of complaint sent by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). However, other members of Congress, including Rep. Allen West (R-FL), object to allowing radical Muslim organizations the opportunity to dictate U.S. counterterrorism policy and want the material to be reinserted into the documents: “Now you have an environment of political correctness which precludes these agents from doing their proper job and due diligence to go after the perceived threat,” Congressman West said.
I couldn’t agree more. There is no question that the country is less safe when we allow radical Muslim organizations to tell the FBI how to train its agents and do its job. The Obama administration owes the American people a full accounting of how and why this terrible decision was made.
Good info Jodi, and I agree! She is in the crosshairs. So far they haven't been able to marginalize her, and if they cannot, well, I hope she has body guards!
I just think we need to have her back, JG. Her back and the backs of the other 4 or 5 signers....and anyone else who has a spine to address this.
I think we should call our reps and let them know that we stand behind these brave folks. We should also urge them to show no fear when it comes to the insanity that is the PC machine.
Reflecting an apparent systemic failure, steadily burgeoning evidence (see here, here, here, and here) indicates that one of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, Huma Abedin, despite Ms. Clinton’s protestation, was inadequately vetted for either family or personal ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Diligent, open source investigation has already uncovered and documented numerous alarming connections. One can reasonably infer that a serious, formal congressional investigation of the overall extent of Muslim Brotherhood influence operations –as requested by Representatives Bachmann, Gohmert, Franks, Westmoreland, and Rooney — might yield even more disturbing findings.
Pending these sorely needed Congressional inquiries — replete with their probing investigative tools (i.e., subpoena power, access to classified materials) — much can still be gleaned from the public record. For example, over the past 33 years, Huma Abedin’s family has been responsible for the editorial production of the academic journal of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), known as Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs Journal from 1979-1995, and Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs from 1996 until now. The production started with the founding involvement of family patriarch Syed Z. Abedin and Huma’s mother Saleha Abedin since 1979, and subsequently joined by Huma’s brother Hassan Abedin (1996 to present), Huma herself (1996 to 2008), and Huma’s sister Heba (married name Khalid or Khaled; 2002 to present).
The following analysis of this IMMA journal’s foundational origins, guiding editorial board membership, and Weltanschauung — most appositely, at present — confirms that the Abedin family “academic” journal is a thinly veiled mouthpiece Brotherhood’s Sharia-supremacist agenda.
Great post, Jodi. I fail to see how the left (and McCain and co.) can aver that she was fully vetted! We desperately need to eliminate political correctness, and replace it something that makes sense. Like House UnAmerican Affairs Committee!
I don't get it either. How can they possibly ignore this?
Jodi - I just want to make clear my views on this. I do not mean tht this is not a valid issue. It is as real as it gets, But as I have stated, the goals of radical Islam to form a Caliphate have not changed in over a Thousand years. Sulaman the Great was probably the closest and he only made it to Western Europe, where the strongest opposition militaries existed.
Almost 11 years without a successful attack on American soil is quite a record. All of these groups you have documented are not new to this scene. Before the news outlets became instant access 24/7 anywhere in the world, Al Jazeera was reporting stories as biased as the examples you used in a daily indoctrination clinic. They have been forced by the power of the world concerns over the Jihad to lower their tone. They actually dedicate an hour or so a day to real Western news. Do not underestimate the power of money influencing this change as well. These people are no different when they get whittled down to their base than any other power mongering wealthy group.
The Bilderberger group includes many of the wealthy Sultans of the Arab world. They will not stand by and watch a religious zealotry take their money and power. It is not just America and Israel against the Jihadists. In my opinion only ten percent of every major religious group are true believers, and that definitely includes Christians. The 90% left can be bought for a price. It is always the destitute populations in countries which allow a leader they believe in or want to believe in, to push them into a war. This is why communist nations always keep their citizens a little hungry and their militaries as powerful as possible. This is why Ayatollahs and Mullahs force to-the-letter obeyance of the Qu'ran, as they live like royalty. Every form of governance ever tried has this as a given. Only The American Constitution keeps our leadership from attaining that level of oppression. It is still the document oppressed peoples around the globe read and dream of coming here. It will survive, and I say this with a very positive belief, because it does make the people or the states supreme rulers of this land. When true challenges face this nation, you always see the best of our diverse peoples come out. This is why I do not believe the numbers of Jihadists inside our borders are as much a threat as many believe. How long does it take an Arab young man, deprived of every luxury we have here as an everyday given, to realize he has been indoctrinated and lied to about America ? How long does it take for them to see this Country is the heaven on earth that they have been told is a lie - a Satanic trick ? I would gamble the hit list for Jihadists gone astray of their programming in America is much longer than any other. I would also gamble most of the plots which have been defused before they were implimented is the direct result of a Jihadist seeing the light and ratting out his brothers. The competence levels of our intelligence agencies has not been that great ( see pathetic ) since Carter destroyed the infrastructure of our spy network during his destructive time in office.
As to the Congress and how they do anything is another world altogether. Getting rid of PC is a must do for us if we are to win this war. All of the other constitutional issues as well for that matter.
John...while you make great points and I tend to agree...
I would like to know why this 'discussion' is off limits. Why will people in DC eat their own over this subject?
Other hot issues are abortion, racism, rich vs. poor, same sex marraige, illegals....all are up for 'discussion'.
Why not this issue?
For now, they still control the topics which are prioritized in the MSM. If the republicans would make the same effort to deflect an issue half as serious, there would be a firestorm of front page news coverage. Somewhere even Tom Dascle would be " outraged, outraged and concerned about this republican agenda "
We have never had the MSM on our side Jodi. From the day Marconi put his radio on the market, and Time and Newsweek started to print their pap, we have been desperately playing defense against the disinformation. It is a miracle we have held our heads above water. I dream of the day the internet will dominate the news. The percentage of people getting the news from it has grown exponentially in recent years and people really do want to know the truth. We can prove our points with hard facts. They will never be able to do that. Soon these progressives will be an endangered species, at least in this country. The truth is setting people free daily.
Haris Tarin, the director of the Washington office, recently chastised Rep. Michelle Bachmann for asking national security questions about the role of certain Muslim American Organizations and individuals in high ranking governmental positions. Representative Bachmann sits on the House Intelligence Committee.
The press release, originally dated August 3, 2012, was updated this morning to announce the press conference’s cancellation. MPAC also updated their Facebook page, announcing the cancellation.
