U.S. intelligence agencies appear befuddled regarding radical Islamist terrorists and home-grown U.S. counterparts.
The Obama administration exhibits a lack of leadership and competency in failing to recognize the threat that radical Islamists present on U.S. soil.
Home-grown Islamist terrorists include native-born, naturalized, and first- and even second-generation men and women who have succumbed to Islamist terrorist ideology.
Add to the Obama administration’s inability to recognize radical Islamist terrorists as a clear and present danger, the amnesty legislation being drafted by Congress, and America faces a modern-day Trojan horse.
Call it political correctness or multiculturalism or globalism or secular socialism, but the Obama administration by executive fiat and a pliant Congress is relaxing the homeland guard.
The announced goal of Islamists is world Shariah (Islamic law). As the Obama administration moves toward European-style secular socialism, so do U.S. homeland security concerns rapidly disintegrate.
On Obama’s watch, U.S. intelligence agencies have suffered increased inertia as a result of the Obama administration’s failure to understand current threats to national security or a naive disregard for impending peril.
Obama-speak (reminiscent of new-speak in George Orwell’s book "1984") has now completed 18 months of promised “change.” In the process, the global war on terror has become an overseas contingency plan, and Islamist terrorist attacks have become man-caused disasters.
According to Charles Bolden, the Obama administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the foremost task of the agency is to make dominantly Muslim nations feel good about their historic contributions to science and engineering.
The Obama administration has backed away from the “foremost” part, yet in April 2010, the White House held a two-day summit on entrepreneurship for mostly Muslim attendees.
The Obama administration’s concern for Hispanic and Islamic sensibilities is resulting in lax border control and an unobstructed pathway to the United States, which inevitably allows in those who would destroy U.S. culture.
Even the liberal media is taking note.
A Washington Post article on July 19, 2010, opined that national security agency's “lack of focus, not lack of resources, was at the heart of the Fort Hood shooting that left 13 dead, as well as the Christmas Day bomb attempt thwarted not by the thousands of analysts employed to find lone terrorists but by an alert airline passenger who saw smoke coming from his seatmate.”
Obama’s intelligence mavens failed to connect the dots. Were they caught up in political posturing and gamesmanship, or was it a display of plain ineptitude?
Islamist terrorists are adopting the operational methods of Soviet Russian spy-master Mikhail Milstein. He posed as a Latin American student at Columbia University in the 1930s, and for decades thereafter was a Soviet spy handler.
Fluent in English and Spanish, Milstein understood the value of a Hispanic persona for deep-cover agents planted in Western nations. Today Islamist terrorists and Hispanic criminal gangs copy Milstein’s espionage tricks for entering and exiting a country using disguises and fraudulent papers and his insistence on accurate intelligence.
Milstein's techniques of internal espionage and deep-cover infiltration of countries form the basis for current Islamist, Russian, and other anti-America regimes.
For the past 20 years, FBI agents working the terrorist/counterterrorist squads have known that al-Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah, and various spin-offs have easy access to the Mexican-U.S. border.
Islamist terrorists have adopted Hispanic names, language, and culture. Many are deep-cover agents, similar to the 10 Russians just arrested and returned to Russia.
In 2006, a leading Islamist terrorist, Abu Dawood, reportedly said that “the brothers” were smuggling dangerous materials across the Mexican border to the United States.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency made similar claims in 2005 and 2007. For a decade, U.S. officials have been aware of terrorists, who enter the United States illegally with false papers or who overstay legal visas.
Gallop News Service in 2006 reported that a large number of Palestinians sworn in as naturalized citizens held hostile attitudes toward America.
President Barack Obama, by memorandum in 2009 set $20.3 million in taxpayer monies for resettlement assistance to introduce Hamas refugees into the United States. Thus thousands of Palestinians will now receive housing and other welfare benefits.
In June 2010, news of the arrest of 10 Russian deep-cover spies came a day after President Obama reached out to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at the White House. The Russian spies pled guilty in U.S. District Court and were immediately flown back to Russia as part of a USA-Russia spy swap. Critics question the speed of the swap and the lack of adequate debriefing of the Russian spies.
Today espionage is largely immigration-based. Not only Islamist spies but also spies from China, Honduras, India, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Russia, who are here illegally, actively engage in espionage.
Comprehensive immigration reform allied with an unfocused intelligence conglomerate is an open invitation for more access to America by those who want to destroy the Republic. President Obama’s promise of comprehensive immigration reform turns out to be not in the nation’s best interest.
Comprehensive immigration reform, with amnesty provisions, has the potential to insinuate subversive groups within our ranks.
