Over 72 Department of Homeland Security Employees on US Terrorist Watch List

 DHS
Madness. Devout Muslims on the terror watchlist are working for the DHS. Is it any wonder that Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is targeting us — patriots, vets, counter jihadists?

Obama stacked the DHS, DoS, DoD with the enemy.

“Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also ‘were on the terrorist watch list.’”

“‘Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,’ Lynch told Boston Public Radio.”

“72 DHS Employees on Terrorist Watch List,” Washington Free Beacon, December 6, 2015

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”

“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio.

“The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,” he said.

DHS continues to fail inspections aimed at determining the efficiency of its internal safety mechanisms, as well as its efforts to protect the nation.

Lynch referred to a recent report that found the Transportation Security Administration, which is overseen by DHS, failed to stop 95 percent of those who attempted to bring restricted items past airport security.

“We had staffers go into eight different airports to test the department of homeland security screening process at major airports. They had a 95 percent failure rate,” Lynch said. “We had folks—this was a testing exercise, so we had folks going in there with guns on their ankles, and other weapons on their persons, and there was a 95 percent failure rate.”

Lynch said he has “very low confidence” in DHS based on its many failures over the years. For this reason, he voted in favor of recent legislation that will tighten the vetting process for any Syrian refugees applying for asylum in the United States.

“I have very low confidence based on empirical data that we’ve got on the Department of Homeland Security. I think we desperately need another set of eyeballs looking at the vetting process,” he said. “That’s vetting that’s being done at major airports where we have a stationary person coming through a facility, and we’re failing 95 percent of the time.”

“I have even lower confidence that they can conduct the vetting process in places like Jordan, or Belize or on the Syrian border, or in Cairo, or Beirut in any better fashion, especially given the huge volume of applicants we’ve had seeking refugee status,” Lynch said.

Obama appoints fox to guard the hen house

Amerikan FlagDecember 6, 2015

By Carol Brown
Another hideous person rises through the ranks of the Obama administration: Mr. Robert Malley. He is cut from the same cloth as many of those that Obama surrounds himself with. In other words, a person who hates America and sympathizes with our enemies. And now he is in charge of the administration’s absurd, ridiculous, disingenuous, pathetic, uncommitted effort to combat ISIS.

First a bit of back story.

Malley was born in 1963 to parents who were communists, Islamist sympathizers, and Jew haters.  His mother worked for the UN delegation of the National Liberation Front, an anti-American political party. His Egyptian-born father played a key role in the Egyptian communist party and was a confidante of Yasser Arafat. Both parents were rabidly anti-Israel, critics of “Western imperialism,” and supporters of a number of revolutionary “liberation movements” (especially the “Palestinian” cause), among other egregious affiliations and views.

Although born in the United States, Malley grew up in France. As a young adult, he attended Harvard Law School during the same time Obama was a student there. A few years later, in 2007, Obama appointed Malley to serve as his foreign policy advisory for his presidential campaign. Per a report at Atlas Shrugs, Malley was fired the following year after his “notorious ties to Hamas, the PLO and other jihadist and anti-Israel groups” were exposed.

In 2008, AT Editor Ed Lasky wrote a piece that shed additional light on Malley and is as sobering to read today as it was nearly eight years ago. Perhaps even more so, as we look back on the evil Obama has wrought.

Drilling down further we have Robert Malley. He was part of the American negotiating team that dealt with Yasser Arafat at Camp David. He has presented a revisionist history of those negotiations since then: presenting a view that blames Israel for the failures of the negotiations….

He has spent years representing the Palestinian point of view, co-writing a series of anti-Israel articles with Hussein Agha-a former Arafat adviser. Palestinian advocate…Malley has also called settlements “colonies” — implicitly condemning Israel as a “colonial” state. His writings have been so critical of Israel that the media-monitoring group CAMERA has a “dossier” on him….

In another piece written that same year, Lasky provided an excellent review and takedown of several of Malley’s op-ed pieces and described Malley’s political objectives as “a radical reshaping of decades of American foreign policy and a shredding of the role of morality in the formulation of American policy. These policies would strengthen our enemies, empower dictatorships, and harm our allies.”

And indeed, every word that Lasky wrote has come to fruition.

But Malley would not exert influence simply by writing vile op-eds. Soon enough Obama would appoint him to key positions in his administration. Discover the Networks reports:

After President Obama’s 2012 reelection, he appointed Malley to serve as his senior advisor for Iraq-Iran-Syria and the Gulf states. Obama pledged, however, that Malley would have no involvement in issues related to Israel and the Palestinians.

On February 18, 2014, it was announced that Malley was formally returning to the White House to serve as a senior director at the National Security Council (NSC), where he would be in charge of managing relations between the United States and its allies in the Persian Gulf. In March 2015, Obama appointed Malley to direct the NSC’s policy in relation to the entire Middle East, including Israel.

And now Malley has risen through the ranks once again. Judicial Watch reports:

A radical foreign policy adviser fired by President Obama years ago for meeting with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is back as the administration’s new czar in charge of countering the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS).

The White House downplayed the new appointment by burying it deep in a press briefing delivered at a Paris hotel during the recent climate summit….

Seven years into this madness, and the feeling of shock never fades.
