DHS veteran blows whistle on Homeland Security hanky panky

A retired Department of Homeland Security (DHS) veteran is blowing the whistle on his superiors’ involved in illegal hanky panky by alleging they ordered him and other DHS agents to destroy classified documents being stored on a government computer system that provided evidence of links between suspected radical Muslims and Islamist terrorism organizations, Jerry Holbrook, a former federal law enforcement official, told the ConservativeBase.com.
Following extensive service beginning with the formation of the Department of Homeland Security following the 9-11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania in 2001, Philip Haney decided it was time to leave an agency filled with incompetence, corruption and cover-up.  

“After leaving a 13-year career at DHS, I can no longer be silent about the dangerous state of America’s counter-terror strategy, our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness—and, consequently, our vulnerability to devastating, mass-casualty attack,” the former employee wrote in letter to Congress.
It's been shown that the Obama White House play loose and fancy-free with classified intelligence.

Haney alleges that the Obama administration has been “engaged in a bureaucratic effort” to destroy the raw material and intelligence the Department of Homeland Security has been collecting for years, leaving the United States open to mass-casualty Islamic terror attacks.


For example, Haney  describe an incident during the holiday travel season, when a 23-year-old Muslim from Nigeria,  Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, boarded a passenger aircraft, Flight 253, with explosives packed in his underwear and the hopes of slaughtering 290 travelers flying on Christmas Day from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan. Passengers subdued the jihadist and he was arrested, thwarting the plot. 

After the close-call, Haney claims President Barack Obama “threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to ‘connect the dots,’ saying that it was not a failure to collect the intelligence that could have stopped the attack, but rather “‘a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.'”

“Most Americans weren’t aware that the Department of Homeland Security’s employees suffered enormous damage to their morale from Obama’s words,” Haney said.

Many DHS staff members were infuriated “because we knew his administration had been engaged in a bureaucratic effort to destroy the raw material — the actual intelligence we had collected for years, and erase those dots. The dots constitute the intelligence needed to keep Americans safe, and the Obama administration was ordering they be wiped away,” Haney angrily said.

Haney claims that one month prior to the attempted underwear bomb attack his immediate supervisors ordered him to either erase, delete or modify the DHS files for hundreds of suspects tied to Islamist terror organizations, including Hamas, from the Treasury Enforcement Communications System, which is a primary federal database.

The deletion and corruption of the information preventing the different DHS bureaus from being able to “connect the dots” as Obama and his minions like to say, according to Haney.
For example, the agency’s Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials — which includes the vitally important Border Patrol — use the database while conducting surveillance suspects, who are associated with known terrorist affiliations, especially seeking patterns of behavior that could suggest a pending bombing or other attack.

“Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that,” said Haney, who used Hillary Clinton’s term — scrubbing — to describe the security breach.

But that’s not the worst of it, according to the veteran. “Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database,” Haney wrote.

He still recalls how even a few weeks after the attempted Christmas Day aircraft bombing he  allegedly was still being ordered to delete and scrub terrorists’ records, making it more difficult to connect dots in the future.

The number of attempted and successful Islamic terrorist attacks kept increasing, notes Haney, including the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, conducted by Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev; Muhammad Yusuf Abdulazeez’ shooting of two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee last year; the attack conducted by Faisal Shahzad in May 2010; Detroit “honor” killer Rahim A. Alfatlawi in 2011; Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol in 2012; and Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen in 2014.

While the Obama White House always manages to put a positive spin on the outcomes of these attacks, Haney says that he believes it’s likely that one or more of those incidents of domestic terrorism could have been thwarted had the DHS experts been left alone by politically-motivated politicians with their politically-correct agendas.
“It is demoralizing — and infuriating — that today, those elusive dots are even harder to find, and harder to connect, than they were during the winter of 2009,” Haney concluded.
