(This news story includes a video detailing the hiring of a Somali war criminal as a security officer for a Washington, DC airport.)
President Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Department provided unvetted Somali Muslims tours of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport including its so-called restricted area. The Minnesota airport is in the top 20 in terms of passenger traffic.
The group of Somali men had “complained to Obama’s U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about being harassed and profiled,” according to investigative reporter Christine Williams at Jihad Watch. They even admitted they had no proof of these actions by the airport security force and the police, but they claimed they felt they were being singled out.
Johnson caved even though just two years ago, three Somali “refugees” with ties to either the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and/or Al-Shabaab were arrested after it was discovered they conspired to travel overseas and fight with the terrorist organizations. All three had security clearances for jobs at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport that allowed them to go into areas travelers were not allowed, Fox 9 reported.
One of the most bloodthirsty and prolific Islamic terror organizations in the world is Somalia’s Al-Shabaab, which was allied with al-Qaida until it swore allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Besides the terrorist group, those not involved in jihad are the world’s most feared pirates.
In a number of reports, Jihad Watch has noted that Johnson has been consistently failing in running a department that is a key element of American counter-terrorism efforts. “[Secretary Johnson engages our worst enemies in a well-practiced strategy of stealth jihadists of a victimology subterfuge,” said Miss Williams in a Friday report.
Williams is a former political and crime news reporter and news room editor, who has also served as a regular national columnist with Metro News (Co-owned with the Toronto Star) where she also provided news analysis on political and diversity issues.
Her writings have appeared in many publications including: the Middle East Quarterly, FrontPage Magazine, U.S.A. Today Online, Wall Street online and the Gatestone Institute in New York where she is on the Board of Governors. She is also currently working on a book project exploring Muslim Reform and is on the Board of Advisors for the Canadian moderate Muslim organization Muslims Facing Tomorrow. Her probe discovered that these so-called “special security tours” are not available to other groups. Following the tour, Somali participants participate in a round-table with local Somali leaders to get their feedback for “modifications to practices that would allow for operations to be more culturally sensitive.”
“This entire program is a travesty and a show of weakness by the United States leadership. It’s political correctness reaching the level of absurdity not before seen. It’s also why this country needs a change in leadership,” said former counter-terrorism unit member and police officer Stanley McNaughton. “Hillary Clinton will only carry on this weak-kneed approach to fighting terrorism and protecting Americans. And that is what will get us into a large-scale war with the Islamic world,” he added.
In her report, Miss Williams provided information about the growing Somali community in Minnesota: “The FBI and Congress have launched probes into the radicalization of the Somali American community in Minnesota. Al Shabaab recruits young men in local mosques and ships them off to train and fight in Somalia. Last fall the area’s largest newspaper published a story confirming that Minnesota leads the nation in the number of people who have left or sought to leave the country to fight with terrorists aligned with ISIL or ISIS.”
The round-table events and airport tours were organized by Abdirizak Farah, who is listed by the Homeland Security Department as a Senior Policy Adviser. According to Williams, Farah’s salary jumped from $89,033 to $130,453 in five years. “It’s incredible! An adviser, which is a fancy term for part-timer, is making a salary many Americans only dream of making just to show how politically correct Obama and his flunkies are,” said Stanley McNaughton.
