DHS Whistleblower

Something that has been rumbling below the radar as Americans have been focused on the 2016 National Election and Super Bowl 50:

DHS ordered me to scrub records of Muslims with terror ties by Philip Haney, who worked for the Department of Homeland Security for fifteen years (dated February 5, 2016).

...As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (May 2010), Detroit “honor killing” perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015).

It is very plausible that one or more of the subsequent terror attacks on the homeland could have been prevented if more subject matter experts in the Department of Homeland Security had been allowed to do our jobs back in late 2009. 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.
What are the possible reasons that the Obama administration ordered the scrubbing of those records?  I can think of two:

1.  The above-mentioned individuals were being used as exploitation platforms.

2.  The Obama administration is Islamophilic to the point of whitewashing Islam.

Other reasons?


  1. Flank to the first reason?

    It is an outdated mode of operation to manage a snake farm. The snakes have escaped and slither about. There are too many of them. And we can't just spray them out of existence like the Zika virus. They have survived and adapted for centuries. The ideological bloodlines are strengthened. That strength flows through digital arteries and travels transnationally to blow holes in aircraft via wheelchair projectiles. We continue to allow the fit to hit the shan here too.

    Why shed a tear when the alphabet security agencies whine that they do not have enough undercover assets to monitor 24/7? In the greed for metrics the first rule of defensive posture is ignored: Eliminate the threat. With rapidity.

    The dots are not hard to connect. That is a myth. The dots are connected and from Boston to San Bernardino the body count attests to the disastrous results. Too bad there appears to be a justifiable body bag count with manipulation of an anti-Nirvana business model. Let the passions, malice, wicked desires continue along. No need to blow out their little "light spreading lamp" (Qur'an).

  2. Wow. The Hill published that...

    Who knows? And there is no way to know if it came from Obama.

    The federal bureaucracy is so vast and sprawling there is no way to control it or know where orders originated from. Also, we have private groups that have hijacked their own little pieces of federal power to exercise a petty dictatorship in pursuit of some narrow interest.

  3. I wonder what mental anguish Mr. Haney has gone through the last few years, knowing this has been going on and he was complicit.

    1. A couple of those guys were picked up despite Haney's allegation.

      One was a man shooting his daughter. What could the database have done about that?

      Alten Nolan? How could DHS have intervened?

      Could they have done anything about the Tsarnaev's? That's been debated and again it's not clear what could be done.

      Without knowing something about the nature of the data supposedly expunged this doesn't come to much.

  4. I am starting a little file for "The Cheerleaders of Islam" and will archive misinformation put out by major news organizations which attempt to whitewash the core tenets of Islam.

  5. Strange. It rings the same bell as Fast and Furious. Always question the motivation of this treasonous President.

    1. Exactly. DHS is one sick puppy of a bureaucracy and there's no revelation that would shock me about it.

  6. There is only ONE sensible solution to ALL forms of Islamic Aggression. and that is a UTILITARIAN solution –– a FINAL Solution:




    Those who would be kind to the cruel are sure to be cruel to the kind."

    "Those who expect to reap the blessing of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it."

    ~ Thomas Paine (1737-1809)


    However illegal, impolitic, inadvisable, unconstitutional, un-American, immoral or impracticable others claim it to be we should maintain a position of absolute intolerance for a Muslim Presence in OUR world.

    When the Handwriting on the Wall sends a clear, uncompromising message, and STILL we fail to heed its stern warning, we DESERVE to be ECLIPSED.

    FACE IT: Either it's DIDADIN or BE DAMNED.

  7. I would hope that someone who got on the 'no fly' list accidentally when the digits of someone else's social security number were transposed could make it off just a readily as the administration is doing for the bad guys. (And, yes, of course I agree with the removal of unfounded or inconsequential info. Not sure that's what we have here, though.)

    1. Baysider,
      Philip Haney, the whistleblower, doesn't seem to think that the record scrubbing was an inconsequential matter.

  8. Hello, old friend. Blue Heeler, from Down Under. I see your trenches are full of good men and women, as are mine. It would be impolite to say to much, as a foreigner, but I would like to assure all Americans that Obama's sneezing is giving us all a cold. I expect so much from America...... is this unrealistic?
