Political correctness wins again

First base: Appoint a well-known voice of hate  and member of the Muslim Brotherhood to the Department of Homeland Security and give him a secret clearance ; Second base: See all your undercover people in Lebanon identified; Third base:  Refuse to say that Hamas is a terrorist organization.

Result: Political correctness scores another massive win over common sense and counter terrorism!

 

Mohammed Elibiary was appointed by Janet Napolitano to the DHS Advisory council, given a secret clearance and generally admitted to the inner sanctum of US Homeland Security. Elibiary has marketed himself as a “moderate” Muslim. But  Elibiary has committed some highly dubious acts before. In 2004, he spoke at a conference honoring Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini, calling him a “great Islamic visionary,” and has praised former Muslim Brotherhood leader Sayyid Qutb. He has publicly condemned the prosecution of Hamas Fundraisers in the USA. In a disturbing 2006 email exchange with a Dallas Morning News editor, Elibiary wrote: “Treat people as inferiors and you can expect someone to put a banana in your exhaust pipe or something.”

Nevertheless, In 2010, he was named to a working group that helped shape the Obama administration’s counterterrorism strategy.  Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano later swore in Elibiary as part of her advisory council. “You read his writings, he is defending Sayyid Qutb…a guy that Osama bin Laden referred to and studied to give him a basis for his acts of violence,” Republican Congressman Louis Gohmert said. “And (Napolitano) puts the guy on the Homeland Security Advisory Committee, gives him a secret clearance?” Gohmert, who grilled Napolitano about Elibary at an October congressional hearing, is now calling for an investigation into the leak case. Gohmert told the news agency that by allowing someone like Elibiary into its inner-sanctum, the U.S. government is allowing radical Islamists an intimate look into U.S. counterterrorism operations. “They‘re bringing in the Muslim Brotherhood to the inner sanctum and saying ’Look, they like us! This means peace in our time!‘ And what they’re doing is subjecting this nation to real danger,” he said.  

Coincidentally, (or maybe not) The CIA operations in Lebanon have been badly damaged after Hezbollah “identified” and captured a number of US Spies.  The State Department last year described Hezbollah as "the most technically capable terrorist group in the world," and the Defense Department estimates it receives between $100 million and $200 million per year in funding from Iran.

    This is a serious eye-opener. I don't believe there is such a thing as "coincidence" when it comes to CIA and intelligence. Just as the the capture of those US spies in Lebanon wasn't a coincidence.
