BOMBSHELL: Here’s the Reason Obama SHUT DOWN Investigation Into San Bernardino Terrorists
A recently retired employee of the Department of Homeland Security named Philip Haney, who had devised an innovative program for tracking radical Islamic jihadists that might have identified the San Bernardino shooters before it was too late, is now blowing the whistle on how the Obama administration shut him and his program down.
In an op-ed published by The Hill, Haney described the initial success of his program, how it identified lesser-known terrorist groups operating in the U.S., along with the individuals connected to them.
It has been revealed that the two San Bernardino shooters had ties to organizations that had been named and were being watched by Haney’s program — that is, until the program was suddenly shut down by DHS after the Obama administration assumed power.
The program was shut down on the request of the State Department and the DHS Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Division on the basis that the dangerous groups being watched by the program were not “specially designated terrorist organizations,” meaning the tracking of individuals connected to the groups would violate their civil liberties.
However, Haney noted that the individuals being tracked were almost exclusively foreign nationals, who do not enjoy the same guarantees and protections of civil rights and liberties as American citizens do.
Making matters worse, the DHS not only shut down the special program, but virtually erased all of the vital information that had been gleaned from investigations up to that point, hampering future investigations into suspected terrorists, such as the San Bernardino terrorists, who could have been caught prior to their attack if the program were still continuing.
Haney went on to reveal how he had been targeted himself by the government for investigations and harassment meant to dissuade him from becoming a whistleblower, something he finally went public about this year.
His closing paragraphs is powerful.
“My law enforcement colleagues and I must conduct our work while respecting the rights of those we monitor,” he wrote. “But what I witnessed suggests the Obama administration is more concerned with the rights of non-citizens in known Islamist groups than with the safety and security of the American people.”
