TSA on the job protecting America from terrorism
An anonymous State Department employee, talking to The American Spectator about Flight 253 and underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab:
This employee says that despite statements from the Obama Administration, such information [that Abdulmutallab had been banned from Britain] was flagged and given higher priority during the Bush Administration, but that since the changeover “we are encouraged to not create the appearance that we are profiling or targeting Muslims.”
If this statement is correct, it makes President Obamas Adminstration directly responsible for Abdulmutallab’s success in spiriting a bomb aboard Flight 253, and the statement is easily believable, given STRATFOR’s report last June about intelligence agencies being ordered to stop investigating Black Muslims.
Several weeks ago, STRATFOR heard from sources that the FBI and other law enforcement organizations had been ordered to “back off” of counterterrorism investigations into the activities of Black Muslim converts.
