Watching The Kelly File this evening...and they have on a former DHS investigator, Philip Haney, who says he was investigating and tracking Islamist groups that had connections to Farook and Malik, but the Obama administration shut the investigation down and his evidence was destroyed by State & DHS; Their reasoning was that we are not allowed to develop a case based on any Islamic group.
Political correctness strikes another blow to assist terrorism.



Whistleblower Says He Could Have Prevented CA Attack If Gov't Didn't Cut DHS Funding




A former Homeland Security employee says he likely could have helped prevent the San Bernardino terror attack if the government had not pulled the plug on a surveillance program he was developing three years ago.

Philip Haney told Megyn Kelly tonight that as part of his investigation, he was looking into a collection of global networks that were infiltrating radical Islamists into the U.S.

But a year into the investigation, Haney said they got a visit from the State Department and the Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, who said that tracking these groups was problematic because they were Islamic.

His investigation was shut down and 67 of his records were deleted, including one into an organization with ties to the mosque in Riverside, Calif., that San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook attended.

Haney explained that if his work was allowed to continue, it could possibly have thwarted last week's attack.

"Either Syed would have been put on the no-fly list because association with that mosque, and/or the K-1 visa that his wife was given may have been denied because of his association with a known organization," Haney explained.

Department of Homeland Security analyst Philip Haney—who appeared on the Megyn Kelly Show—will be interviewed about his claim that he tracked members of many Islamist groups, including two which Sayed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, were associated with. However, Haney says that DHS deleted the records and retaliated against him.

Not shocking as it is Obama's minions, but very disturbing.

Great post!


I've seen minds expand by quoting Glenn Beck and Fox this week.

Par for the course.

The Obama Out House is fundamentally changing America.

They are using all available Executive Branch sources to take over.

Here he was way back when....

History always speaks for itself.

Here is what Candidate Obama wanted for our country when he was running for President of the United States of America. He said that "we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

What he meant was what he said in the video, or was it? Or maybe he meant that he wanted to uproot our Republic and make it into something of his liking, something that would allow the "redistribution" of wealth like he promised during the election. Maybe he wants a country where those who produce supplement those who do not produce.

Obama said on February 16, 2008; "Don't tell me that words don't matter." Are we to believe him? Do words really matter? Is "fundamentally transforming America" what he was talking about in this speech? Or is it something else that he wants to do to our country. Only you can decide that. You be the judge. Your judgment will be counted on Election Day 2012.

Obama: "Fundamentally Transforming the United States of America"

I don't know who started that stupid trend of not investigating groups of people who have historically been involved in these kind of things. It is not an infringement, in fact it could clear certain people within the group from being suspects. The lawyers have created a country that has a skin like an egg shell. If there are radicals within Islam, we should be investigating to verify if people are not a threat while identifying which ones are more probable.

I guess since the president has family ties to Islam, he is trying to keep us away from investigating them. This is wrong, the presidents judgement has been compromised. His actions will allow more terrorist activity to occur and further disrupt the ability of us to get along. There is no problem with most Muslims, most of them would not want their radical sects disrupting their relations with Americans. The presidents policies will inevitably reinforce ISIS's recruiting in America because it will cause the Christians to not trust Muslims which will lead to problems. The presidents policies actually may have created Trumps desire to stop Muslims from coming here.

You can search a person who is not a citizen more than you can a citizen of this country. Foreigners do not share Americans citizens rights and Americans do not have the same rights as the citizens of other countries when they are there. Our agreements with other countries on these rights is allowing deception to occur.

Interesting the State Department got involved. Never heard of the Homeland Security Civil Rights Division before, www.dhs.gov...

So is this a case of an inside job using terrorist attacks to pursue agendas? According to conspiracies we've seen this time and time again, also known as a false flag. Did this one man really suffer backlash and retaliation because he wanted to continue his work or is there more to this story? There's definitely two sides to every story but according to the video DHS won't tell their side because of privacy laws. Maybe he'll provide more information about the toxic work environment in the future as I'm sure he's gonna have a busy schedule with the media.

His connection was finding radical groups in America and something about the mosque the Californian shooter attended. Has it been known or reported that the mosque is known to be radical, is suspected of being radical, is under surveillance, or are we just learning about this now?

I don't understand why the Feds would shut his case down based on profiling yet the NYPD was allowed to spy on Muslims and mosques for years and they only were stopped when a new Mayor was elected.

Un-freakin'-believable! I think it is time we stop calling them a religion and start calling them a political terrorist group disguising themselves as a religion.

They know how to take advantage of our strong Constitutional rights, almost as if they are being advised by a constitutional lawyer.

Not shocked that it would have been shut down and surely for other reasons as well. The main one concludes, that these terror attacks happen when they are "allowed"(help with plotting to be stopped to arrest suspects but fail, have a goal, etc) to happen. With that there are probably their investigations and ceasing of looking further into the suspects.

The only group they even think they may have had ties to were all arrested in 2012. And if he was investigating outside groups then he would have not been looking at these two. This guy sounds all kinds of confused. State, Justice, Defense and DHS never get along and DHS would have told state where to get off if they tried to get DHS to do anything. Not that they would have any role in anything within the US anyway, that would be Justice. Also the The Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties does not monitor investigations nor can they stop them, unless a complaint has been filed by the public. Otherwise they are strictly an advisory group. As somebody from the inside this guy sounds like he does not know what he is talking about. I bet he writes a book.

Exactly. The differences of CA and NY may have something to do with "California's ACLU tweaks California mosque-spying lawsuit"- from 2011 -



The FBI has acknowledged a lecture at its training academy was critical of Islam but this was discontinued.

In a statement, the FBI said policy changes were under way to ensure all training was consistent with FBI standards.

The amended lawsuit, filed Tuesday, claims the FBI paid an informant to infiltrate Southern California mosques, violating Muslims' freedom of religion by conducting indiscriminate surveillance because of their faith.

Source - Yahoo News

More on that,


Monteilh says he has provided the FBI with ""very, very valuable" information but that the agency has not treated him with respect in kind. In fact, the self-proclaimed former L.A. County sheriff's chaplain says, he was once prevented from defending himself in an unrelated theft case that put him behind bars for 16 months precisely because he was arrested while undertaking FBI duties and could not reveal his mission. In other words, he claims he took one for the team, and the team abandoned him.

Reminds me of Able Danger, program that used open source info to identify some of 911 perps beforehand.

Be interesting to see followup stories on this program.

I'd call that a lot worse than political correctness! Sounds more like Fast and Furious-style cover-up to me. Maybe there are deeper reasons someone avoided calling this terrorism for so long. Maybe some of the ties would have gone some interesting directions.

Oh come on. you know the drill.

Just like in 9/11 with Sibel Edmonds who claims there was info about the attacks already. And who was about to testify that we knew about the attacks. However suddenly before she could testify. Ashcroft used state secrets privilege to get the FBI to retroactively classify top secret everything so she wouldn't testify.

So guess what we are going to war folks. Just like last time.

Well this surely is interesting...


Trace Gallagher reported that DHS claims Haney's story contains "many holes," but declined to comment further due to privacy laws.


insider.foxnews.com...

So Mr. Haney supposedly was one of the founders of the DHS, so he was in the inner circle of the then president Bush because he would have had to be to be a founder of the DHS.

I also see he said that he was in the Intelligence Review Unit, but I can't seem to find anything about it...wonder why?

His story seems a bit fishy when looking into it some more.

The issue is that it can't be both ways. I fully support rights for people of any religion, Islam included. However, if people say "ISIS is not Islam," then keeping tabs on ISIS linked groups is not discrimination against Islam. You can't claim ISIS is separate and also the same. It also makes no sense to say "ISIS groups are terrorists, but because they are mainly Muslim, it's discrimination to investigate them."

Oh before we start with the pointy fingers and stuff about P.C lemme refresh your memories a bit.
DHS Crushed This Analyst for Warning About Far-Right Terror


But Johnson’s career took an unexpected turn in 2009, when an analysis he wrote on the rise of “Right-Wing Extremism” (.pdf) sparked a political controversy. Under pressure from conservatives, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) repudiated Johnson’s paper — an especially bitter pill for him to swallow now that Wade Michael Page, a suspected white supremacist, killed at least six people at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. For Johnson, the shooting was a reminder that the government’s counterterrorism efforts are almost exclusively focused on al-Qaida, even as non-Islamist groups threaten Americans domestically.

Ok back to Obama bash, not implying he doesn't deserve it just saying remove the moot from thine own eyes.

DHS has been discredited repeatedly. San Bernardino alone is enough to show how 'secure' the homeland isn't. They crushed nothing.
