Treason: Homeland Security Gave Airport Intel to MULTIPLE Confirmed “Watch list Terrorists”
Millions of Americans board planes every single day, Since 9/11, our attitudes about travel have understandably changed as Obama has progressively placed Americans at heightened senses of risk. Walking into an airport now can bring up a lot of different emotions, including anger, fear, and sadness.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is a strong presence in all airports now. Regulations have gotten much stricter, and levels of alert rise and fall based on current terrorist threats. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) vows to do everything possible to eliminate the threats to our citizens. They are charged with protecting citizens from foreign dangers.
That makes this new development even more bizarre. Judicial Watch, the Washington-based government watchdog, released documents that describe “community engagement tours,” including security briefings, in secured areas of at least three major U.S. airports. The airports were Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Columbus, Ohio and the tours were led by Homeland Security officials.
The tours were not given to government officials, leaders of communities, or even the press. Instead the participants were members of the Somali community.
Tom Fitton, the President of Judicial Watch, said much of the information given to the group was redacted or blacked out. “Logically, information that is too sensitive to provide to Judicial Watch and the public should not have been given to a ‘community engagement tour,” Fitton said.
He went on to say that the heavily blacked out report “speaks to the recklessness of the airport tour program, which drew from a community heavily recruited by the Islamic State.”
According to the documents delivered to Judicial Watch, the briefings provided to the Somali groups were so sensitive that in 14 instances the agency redacted portions of the records under Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption, the law-enforcement “risk circumvention” exemption.
