The Muslim Democrat Terrorist Omar Mateen was reported to FBI by Disney when he and his wife were casing Disney World; and a gun shop also reported their suspicions when he attempted to purchase body armor.
However, as a matter of explicit Government policy (“Countering Violent Extremism”) supported by both parties, the FBI will not investigate tips involving Mohammedans unless the tips come from designated representatives of the Mohammedan community… such as CAIR, or the Muslim Brotherhood.
In early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.” Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.
Just wondering, if a gun shop refuses to sell to an Islamist, do they get in MORE or LESS trouble than a bakery that refuses to bake a cake for a gay wedding?
By the way, if the Democrats get their wish and the Government’s secret “No Fly” list becomes the basis for denying gun purchases, the FBI will be legally required to tip off terrorists that they are watching them. That will make us all safer, right?
