A search of ATS did not show this news story in my search query, so here it is.


The Department of Homeland Security was slapped with a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in February, D.C. watchdog organization Judicial Watch (JW) announced Tuesday, for refusing to comply with a July 2014 FOIA request for material relating to a “terrorist hands off” list.

According to a JW press release, the original FOIA request sought out a copy of a copy of the DHS Inspector General report regarding a “hands off list” reportedly maintained by DHS, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and/or US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

“The Obama administration’s unlawful secrecy on this ‘hands off’ list raises concerns about terrorists being allowed into the country,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Even when it comes to protecting our borders from known terrorists, the Obama administration places secrecy and politics above national security. Our nation has reached a dangerous pass.”

On June 2014 i reported on the website that I had seen Senator Chuck Grassley post about the "terrorist hands off list" which was taken down within a few hours after it had been posted. Here is the link to that thread.

Like I wrote back then, isn't it strange that the same government that has increased "security measures" in airports, etc all around the nation has such a list? Why would this be done meanwhile regular Americans are being subjected to unreasonable searchers at airports to include children, women, disabled citizens, and elder people?

I really hope that Senator Grassley, Judicial Watch and whomever else is investigating this get to the bottom of this story because it simply doesn't add up.

Regular Americans are being subjected to unreasonable searchers, and we are being accustomed to more and more military presence, alongside more and more "security" meanwhile people who have REAL ties to terrorist organizations are placed in a "hands off list"?

Perhaps they are infiltrators of actual terrorists.

Doesn't do much good to have our agents arrested.

Also though Obama is a lying cheating sack of "stuff" so who knows.

That isn't the reason. The individual in mention had been in the watch list for a long time, but in 2010 he was taken off the list.

I just did a search and it seems the Senator has updated the info.

Here it is.

VIA ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION

The Honorable Jeh Johnson
Secretary
Department of Homeland Security
3801 Nebraska Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20528

Dear Secretary Johnson:

My office recently received copies of disturbing internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) e-mails regarding the admittance of individuals into the United States with potential ties to terrorism.

The May 2012 e-mail chain between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) surrounds the question of whether to admit someone who had scheduled an upcoming flight into the U.S. Allegedly, the individual was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a “close associate” of a supporter of “Hamas, Hizbollah, and (Palestinian) Islamic Jihad.” According to the same e-mail, the individual had been in secondary inspection “several dozen times of the past several years,” but had not had a secondary inspection since 2010.1

The reason they claim why they took him, and others off the watch list is this.



...
One of the responses to the initial e-mail states: “The [CBP National Targeting Center (NTC)] Watch Commander advised that the subject has sued CBP twice in the past and that hes one of the several hands off passengers nationwide. . . . Apparently his records were removed in December 2010 and the DHS Secretary was involved in the matter.”2

The individual, and others had sued the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and as a consequence of that lawsuit his name, among others were removed from the watch list...

This is what TPTB are really after, getting all up in our business. Pre 9-11 LE was more than adequate to protect us from legitimate foreign terrorist attacks. The DHS and TSA exist to instill fear and control diminishing our freedom for a false sense of "security".

Repeal The Patriot Act!
