'Raghead' Slur in Snowden Leak Prompts White House Call for Discrimination Review
National Journal ^ | July 9, 2014 | Dustin Volz

Posted on 07/09/2014 10:41:58 AM PDT by don-o

On the heels of an explosive leak from Edward Snowden, the White House is pushing its intelligence agencies to review their internal policies and standards to ensure "diversity and tolerance" in its operations.

An article published Wednesday by The Intercept revealed that the National Security Agency and the FBI spied on the emails of five high-profile Muslim-Americans who were apparently guilty of no wrongdoing. One disclosed file from 2005 shows a target's unknown name being replaced with a placeholder of "Mohammed Raghead."

Without confirming or denying other details of the report, the White House said it has asked for an assessment of whether spy agencies are vigorous enough in their policing of potential racial or religious bias.

"As the NSA has said, the use of racial or ethnic stereotypes, slurs, or other similar language by employees is both unacceptable and inconsistent with the country's core values," White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said in a statement. "The administration takes all such allegations extremely seriously, and upon learning of this matter, the White House immediately requested that the director of National Intelligence undertake an assessment of Intelligence Community policies, training standards or directives that promote diversity and tolerance, and as necessary, make any recommendations changes or additional reforms."

Yes, “diversity and tolerance”. That’s the problem that needs to be fixed down at NSA!

It’s time for the NSA to release data that they are sure to have regarding the Obamadork and his messages to our enemies.

This would 1) aid them in regaining respect in the U.S., 2) contribute to the demise of the Obamadork, and 3) give citizens ample proof that the MSM should be hunted down and dispatched.

Come on, NSA, we know that your janitors have twice the IQ of anyone in the White House. The Obamadork couldn’t qualify to clean your windows.

Do it.

Now.

You KNOW Obama is regretting passing up the “toke” he was offered yesterday. This governing a country is SO hard.

“On the heels of an explosive leak from Edward Snowden, the White House is pushing...to ensure “diversity and tolerance” in its operations.”

BULL.

I worked in SIGINT thirty years ago, specifically that involving Mediterranean/North African/Middle East intelligence. We always used the term, ‘raghead’, in conversation within our compartments.

The “ragheads” were trying to destroy Western Civilization and murdering westerners. To Hell with people who do not themselves believe in diversity, but only talk about it.

Would anyone call the term mitre-head or crown-head a slur against Catholics or Orthodox?

More concerned with upsetting Islamics than spying on all Americans...

A quote from an 1899 book by Winston Churchill, "The River War", in which he describes Muslims he apparently observed during Kitchener's campaign in the Sudan

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Raghead is pretty innocuous when referring to muzzies. The terms I would use would get my post pulled.

At least they got the slur right. I cringe when I hear people say “towelhead”.

“Good gosh, like they don’t have something better to do?”

Like getting a southern border? Get Real! After all, how could we have won our independence from the British, or defeat Hitler, without undertaking an assessment of further directives and training standards, and community policies that promote diversity and tolerance?

OK ....

How about "Achmed the Awful"? Or "Jihad Joe"?

Or maybe "Deranged Follower of Mad Mo the Pedophile"?

Winston Churchill - there is more than one reason the fake in our White House jettisoned the bust of Churchill. Churchill spoke an uncomfortable and unflattering truth about Muslims.

I prefer to call them cockroaches, but one of my other favorite terms for the ragheads is “goat-bangers.”
