DHS Exposed US Airport Security
DHS Exposed US Airport Security
Judicial Watch, a group that monitors government corruption, obtained documents from the TSA that revealed a startling and unfortunate situation: Both in 2014 and 2015 DHS officials allowed unprecedented access to secure areas of the Minneapolis-St Paul airport by Somali Muslims just because they felt “profiled and harassed.”
The Somalis whined to DHS secretary Jeh Johnson that they felt profiled and harassed. Their complaint created an unfathomable danger to everyone who will fly out of Minneapolis-St Paul airport at some point in the future. At least three men were found to have terrorist ties and actually worked at the airport (MSP).
Exposing the underbelly of MSP Airport
Judicial Watch reported on August 2, 2016:
On at least two occasions—December 18, 2014 and February 18, 2015—federal authorities granted the unprecedented excursions of the facility’s sterile and secure areas, according to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) records obtained by Judicial Watch. The DHS agency that conducted the expeditions, Customs and Border Protection (CBP), provided the Muslim participants with “an in-depth, on-site tour and discussion of CBP’s airport, including both inbound and outbound passenger processing,” the TSA files state. Besides multiple roundtable meetings between CBP and Somali community leaders including imams, the records show that a luncheon and “cultural exchange and educational brief” also took place between December 2014 and February 2015 so that attendees could ask about the agency’s “specific practices” at the airport.”
The roundtable events and airport tours were organized by Abdirizak Farah, who is identified in the records as a policy advisor in the DHS Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL). Farah joined DHS in 2010 with an annual salary of $89,033 and by 2015 his yearly pay increased to $130,453, according to a government database. The TSA’s “Somali liaison officer” in Minneapolis, Andrew Rhoades, told Judicial Watch that the special airport tours were organized for Somali Muslims after they complained to Johnson that they felt “harassed and profiled” by CBP at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport. The DHS secretary had “a sympathetic ear to that,” Rhoades said, adding that no other group has been granted such airport access by DHS. “Now, I will say we’ve never done that, or we don’t do that, to let’s say the Hmong community living here in Minneapolis, uh, the Christian community, the Catholic community, the Irish… whatever you want to call it. This has been the only one,” Rhoades said.
Muslims in the government
And while we’re at it, why all the Muslims in our Department of Homeland security? It does NOT make us more secure, it actually increases our vulnerability because Sharia specifically requires that a Muslim NOT turn in another Muslim to non-Muslim authorities. It’s considered slander and tale-bearing.
“Slander and talebearing are two of the ugliest and most frequently met with qualities among men…Slander means to mention anything concerning a person (Muslim) he would dislike.” (Um Dat al Salik, r2.1-2.2)“The reality of talebearing lies in divulging a secret, in revealing something confidential whose disclosure is resented.” (Ibid, r3.1)
Koran 49:12 specifically states “Do not slander (spy on) one another” and “Woe to whomever disparages others behind their back or in their face.” (Koran 104:1)[Sharia notes courtesy of Understanding The Threat]
Security at risk?
This showing of our airport security measures reveals a complete lack of understanding of Islam and its goals. They even blew it out both ears with regard to the Somali Muslim community in Minnesota.
Minnesota leads the nation in the number of Somali community members who have left to fight for ISIS. They are also recruited by Al-Shabaab. According to the CS monitor, Ahmed Mohamed Isse of St. Paul, Abdifatah Osman Keenadiid of Minneapolis are cases in point, recruited by the terror group and part of the Westgate Mall attack in 2013. Another Somali attacker was Mustafe Noorudiin of Kansas.
The FBI has open investigations regarding Somali radicalization. But the bottom line here is that our own Department of Homeland Security allowed people from a community that has numerous radical members to look at our security practices at the 17th most busy airport in the country. And not once, but TWICE.
