The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) is a non-profit investigative organization founded in 1995. IPT is the world's most comprehensive data gathering center on Islamic terrorist organizations, their activities, funding and associated front groups around the world. Many government offices, including the U.S. Congress, law enforcement agencies, and public policy forums, utilize IPT.
A year-long investigation by IPT has revealed there have been hundreds of visits to the White House by known radical Islamists who met with top administration officials since 2010.
Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.
One example is Mohamed Elibiary who was appointed by DHS Chief, Janet Napolitano, to the Homeland Security Advisory Council in October, 2010. Elibiary is an outspoken proponent of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Sayyid Qutb of the Muslim Brotherhood, and radical New York Imam Siraj Wahhaj. Elibiary has also accused the U.S. government of waging a war on Islam.
Elibiary's organization, the Freedom and Justice Foundation (FJF), founded in 2002, had its tax-exempt status revoked in May, 2010, for failing to file Form 990 for at least three years and reportedly since its inception. The 990 filing provides information on a the organization's mission, programs and finances, including the sources of income. Despite the revocation, FJF continued to solicit donations.
Further, FJF is an affiliate of the Texas Islamic Council, whose directors include H. Mustafaa Carroll, executive director of the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, a part of a Hamas-support network.
Texas Department of Public Safety (TPDS) Director, Steve McCraw, spoke with
DHS Deputy Undersecretary for Intelligence and Analysis Bart Johnson, on Monday, October 31, 2011, requesting DHS begin an investigation concerning allegations that Elibiary used his DHS security clearance to access the HS SLIC database and downloaded classified documents and reports, then 'shopped' the information to the media.
TPDS confirmed the allegations, and the House Judiciary Committee launched its own investigation, demanding Janet Napolitano's explanation, at which time she claimed no knowledge of Elibiary's actions. Remember that Mr. Johnson had already been contacted by Mr. McCraw.
Appearing again before the Committee in July, 2012, Elibiary's boss, Janet Napolitano, was quite evasive. Initially, the events did not occur; however, she then told the Committee that the report was misleading and the TDPS was wrong. Then she said Elibiary did access some information, but it only became an issue because he is Muslim.
Elibiary was the only member of a twenty-six member Homeland Security Advisory Council to be given security clearance which allowed access to the Homeland Security State and Local Intellligence Community of Interest (HS SLIC) database, despite his associations and revocation of FJF's tax-exempt status.
It is quite disturbing that an outside adviser (as are all members of this Council) who is not a DHS employee with properly-screened security clearance, and who is not employed by any state or local law enforcement agency, would be given access to a database intended for intelligence sharing between U.S. agencies. Whoever authorized Elibiary's security clearance, allowing access to highly sensitive material, including FBI source reporting and terror watch lists, is at least guilty of great irresponsibility, and at most treason.
Elibiary also worked with the FBI, National Counterterrorism Center, and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Who knows what other documents he accessed and to whom he 'peddled' those documents! Elibiary's security clearance was finally revoked in November, 2011.
During the Committee proceedings, Ms. Napolitano also stated she did not know of anyone with known terrorist organization ties visiting the White House, despite the proof contained in the visitor logs.
If that's horrifying enough, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) seems to enjoy the closest working relationship with the Administration. MPAC's stated doctrines include anti-semitism, promoting a reduced terrorist threat, refusal to cooperate with Congress, denouncing counterterrorism tools, and hostility toward law enforcement.
MPAC's agenda is to remove references to Islam and terrorists from U.S. security dialogue. Fifteen MPAC officials have been welcomed by the White House, including its executive director, who enjoyed at least six White House visits between September, 2009, and July, 2011; and, MPAC's government liaison who visited the White House 10 times between July, 2010, and May, 2012.
This administration's peculiarly large welcome mat to radical Islamists can only serve to compromise American security. As a result of these horrific revelations of what has been occurring in the White House, State Department, and Department of Homeland Security, I can't help but notice that - again - the Administration is anything but transparent, as was promised. Doesn't that bother anyone else?
And, I can't forget his statement: 'If I don't have this done in three years ...' (See video below) I guess he's getting it done! But, that depends on what 'it' really is.
If we're judged by the company we keep, what does that tell you about Barack Hussein Obama?
