The Washington Free Beacon first reported in 2014 that the Obama administration secretly assembled a terrorist “hands off” list that enabled individuals with terrorist ties unfettered entrance into the United States.

The latest documents, obtained by Judicial Watch and released on Tuesday, appear to confirm these initial reports. They further disclose that at least 1,000 names were scrubbed from the U.S. Terrorist Screening Database as part of an administration effort to protect the civil rights of suspected individuals.

“The documents appear to confirm charges that Obama administration changes created a massive ‘hands off’ list,” Judicial Watch said in a statement. “Removed data from the terrorist watch list could have helped prevent the San Bernardino terrorist attack.”

muslim-obamaLawmakers disclosed in 2014 that the administration has secretly assembled a terrorist “hands off” list that facilitated travel to the United States for those one flagged as a potential terror threat. Sources who spoke to the Free Beacon at the time disclosed that at least one individual, a Canadian Islamist leader tied to Hamas and Hezbollah, had been put on the list.

“These new documents bolster allegations that the Obama administration may have removed information from a terrorist watch list that could have prevented the San Bernardino terrorist attack,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Philip Haney risked his career to blow the whistle on how the Obama administration created a ‘hands off” list of over 1,000 foreign nationals with potential terrorist ties.  And, once again, it was a Judicial Watch lawsuit—and not Congress or the media—that uncovered the key information about this national security scandal.”

Whistleblower: Feds Shut Down Terror Investigation That Could Have Prevented San Bernardino Attack


Written by Photo of Chuck Ross Chuck Ross, Reporter, 12/11/2015

A former Department of Homeland Security agent says that an investigation he was conducting into a fundamentalist Islamic group operating in the U.S. may have helped stop San Bernardino jihadi Syed Farook had the government not shut down his probe.

During an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Thursday, Philip Haney said that in 2012 as an agent with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s National Targeting Center, he opened an investigation into a Sunni Islamic group called, Tablighi Jamaat, a subset of the fundamentalist Deobandi movement. But Haney said that just a year into the investigation it was shut down by the State Department and the Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.

The reason the investigation was quashed? Because the federal government did not want to profile Islamic groups, Haney told Kelly.Obama Muslim collection

In the process of shutting down Haney’s inquiry, the feds also deleted his files, which included information on an organization with ties to Farook’s mosque, San Bernardino’s Deobandi movement-affiliated Dar-al-Uloom al-Islamia. And Farook’s wife and accomplice, Tashfeen Malik, went to school at Pakistan’s al-Huda, which also has ties to the Deobandi movement.against America

As the global intelligence group Stratfor has reported, Talighi Jamaat has been linked to a number of attempted terrorist attacks targeting the U.S.

Members of the sect were tied to the Oct. 2002 Portland Seven case and the Sept. 2002 Lackawanna Six case. Members were also involved in an Aug. 2006 plot to bomb airliners en route from London to the U.S. and attempted bombings in London and Glasgow, Scotland in July 2007. Stratfor also reported that Talighi Jamaat affiliates were involved in the July 7, 2005 bombings. That attack left 52 dead and more than 700 injured. 

Haney said that had his investigation been allowed to develop, Farook may have ended up on the federal government’s terror radar or on the government’s no-fly list. And if that had occurred, Farook would not have been able to connect with Malik. The jihadists reportedly met in 2013. She came to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia last year on a fiancee visa and married soon after.

“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 told Kelly.

Haney turned whistleblower in 2013 after meeting with DHS’ inspector general. In turn, DHS and the Justice Department investigated him, though found no wrongdoing, The Federalist reported.

In September 2014, Haney had his security clearance revoked as well as his access to work databases.

According to Fox’s Trace Gallagher, the Department of Homeland Security declined to comment on the story but said that Haney’s story is missing many details.

Haney’s claim comes amid reports that investigators believe that Farook was in the same social circle as a Riverside, Calif., man who was arrested in 2012 in a plot to recruit for al-Qaida. That recruiter, Soheil Kabir, was convicted of providing material support to terrorists and sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Farook had reportedly planned an attack in 2012 but got spooked after that recruiting ring was busted.

Here is exactly why Obama’s ‘plan’ to prevent terrorism would never work – especially with him trying to import thousands of refugees.

Via Breitbart:

The problem with Obama’s push for the inclusion of the no-fly list into background checks is that the San Bernardino attackers—Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik—were not on the no-fly list, according to CNN. In fact, they were not on “any list” tied to potential terrorists in the U.S.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX-10th) made this clear on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, when he referenced Farook and Malik and said, “There were no flags [or] warning signs in this particular case.”

In other words, Farook would have still been able to pass a background check for a gun purchase even if the no-fly list were included in background checksYet many law-abiding Americans might actually be denied gun purchases if the no-fly list were added, and that is the reason the NRA opposes adding the no-fly list to background checks.

Opinion: How Political Correctness Killed 14 People in San Bernardino


waving flagPosted on December 7, 2015Rob Knowles

“Political correctness has become a straightjacket.” – Gary Oldman

Political correctness has finally crossed the red line. It used to be a thing we made fun of, something we detested cause of deathbecause it constrained us. Now, with the San Bernardino terror attack, political correctness has moved from being a simple metaphysical horror into something that directly contributed to the deaths of more than a dozen Americans.

Ever since 9/11, America has been subjected to endless rants about “Islamophobia.” Every time a major terror incident occurred in the world, or a plot was foiled in the United States, we heard the terrified shrieks of the PC police. Metaphorically jack-booted culture warriors would spin stories of a non-existent hate culture targeting moderate Muslims, and we would cower in the corner like dogs.

Well, to quote someone with whom President Obama is quite familiar, America’s PC chickens have come home to roost.

According to an ABC affiliate, a neighbor of Syed Farook’s mother had her suspicions about the family, but held her tongue because she didn’t want to “profile.” 

Neighbor Aaron Elswick recalled the story to ABC7:

“She had noticed that they had been, I guess, receiving packages–quite a few packages within a short amount of time. And that they were actually doing a lot of work out in the garage. She was kind of suspicious, and wanted to report it, but said she didn’t want to profile.”

Political correctness has taken life.

She didn’t want to profile. I wonder where she got that idea? Oh yeah. At every turn, the “Islam is Peace” mantra has been beaten into us by the leftist media and our very own president. Every time liberal politicians speak about radical Islamic terrorism, they go miles out of their way to rebuke those who would ever dare to suspect malfeasance on the part of an American Muslim.

People are so terrified of being labeled racist or bigoted that if their Muslim neighbor were assembling pipe bombs on the front lawn, they’d look the other way.

However, there’s a much more frightening side to this story. It’s not simply the fear of being labeled a racist bigot that’s driving this nonsense; we’ve been brainwashed into actually believing that Islam is a peaceful faith. We’ve been told this lie so many times that we believe it without question.

This woman saw behavior that was suspicious, but she didn’t report it. If this were Ireland at the height of the IRA conflict, and someone saw their neighbors behaving in the same way, they would call the police. They would do this because it makes sense.

When a certain subgroup of individuals is known to practice violence, and people who bear all the marks of that subgroup are behaving in a suspicious way, one is right to be wary. But we’ve been told for so long that radical Islam doesn’t represent Muslims that when all signs point to jihad, we just can’t see it.

We repeat to ourselves what Obama and the media have drilled into our brains for years: Anyone can be radical! Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists, and Atheists are just as prone to radicalization as Muslims! It’s wrong to assume that Muslims are more likely to be perpetrators of terror than anyone else. How dare we!

Now 14 people are dead.

San Bernardino: Female Attacker Pledged Allegiance to Islamic State, Al Qaeda Links Emerge


waving flagby Jordan Schachtel 4 Dec 2015

During the jihadi attack, Tashfeen Malik posted on Facebook that she was pledging allegiance to Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, officials told CNN. The investigators said she used an account under a different name.

Law enforcement sources told multiple news outlets that the bombs created by the two jihadis resembled models for which instructions were provided in Al Qaeda’s “Inspire” magazine, which was thought to be the creation of deceased Al Qaeda leader Anwar Al-Awlaki. One particular issue of “Inspire” printed a guide on “how to build a bomb in the kitchen of your mom.”

Awlaki – who served as the Imam of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Virginia during the 9/11 attacks, then left the country to become a leader in Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – has been credited as the inspiration for several other Islamic terror attacks in the United States. The Fort Hood jihadi, Nidal Hasan, had a demonstrated connection to Awlaki, communicating with Al Qaeda’s chief recruiter directly. Additionally, the Boston Marathon bombers, Dzokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, held a collection of propaganda clips from Awlaki.

There is also the possibility that the two terrorists, while in Saudi Arabia, linked up with radical Islamic terrorist organizations.

Fox News reports that “one or both members of the couple made contact with suspected Al Qaeda terrorists,” citing investigators on the case.

Farook and Malik first met on an online dating website. The two united in Saudi Arabia, and Farook brought Malik to the United States in 2014, officials say. Malik slipped through the cracks, passing a Homeland Security counterterrorism screening as part of her receiving a K-1 visa.

Saira Khan, the sister of the male attacker, spoke to CBS Friday morning about her brother’s act of terror.

“I can never imagine my brother or my sister-in-law doing something like this. Especially because they were happily married, they had a beautiful 6-month-old daughter. It’s just mind-boggling why they would do something like this,” she said. “It makes us very upset and angry that how could you leave a 6-month-old daughter.”  

The two reportedly scrubbed their social media accounts a day before committing the shootings in San Bernardino, law enforcement officials said.

Update- 2:30 PM: The FBI is officially investigating the attack as an act of terrorism.

Update- 2:00 PM: Farook’s sister, who said earlier today she “can’t fathom” why her brother would commit such a heinous act, is a member of a pro-Caliphate Islamist group.

Update- 12:00 PM: The terrorists’ home, where Farook’s mother also resides, was described as an “IED factory” and a “bomb-making facility.”
