Ex-Navy SEAL: US Anti-Terror Bosses Lack Experience

Monday, 09 Feb 2015 06:46 PM

Terrorists have embedded themselves across the United States — and the nation's politically-appointed anti-terrorism officials have little experience in ferreting them out, former Navy SEAL and FBI agent Jonathan Gilliam says.

"We should be very concerned," Gilliam said Monday on "the Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"I look at these individuals who are executives such as the director of Homeland Security, the assistant director of the FBI. I look at the politicians [who got them there].

"They didn't get to that level by just going out working the streets. In many cases like [National Security Advisor] Susan Rice, there's no experience whatsoever. She's a perfect example for this."

Gilliam — president of United States Continued Service, which helps employ retired military veterans — said most of what Rice and others say, and the policies they set down, solve nothing.

"What they do know is the same thing everybody else knows — that there are operatives in this country just like there are operatives everywhere else right now because we've allowed these bad policies...." Gilliam said.

"It doesn't matter that there are sleeper cells in here as much as it matters that now we are 100 percent reactive. There's no action. We've blown it. Now they're here.

"The fact is their lackadaisical stance, their inexperience in fighting terrorism has allowed not only people to infiltrate, but [for] homegrown operatives, not lone wolves … that have grown up here, been recruited here."
