Obama admin kept secret terrorist 'hands off' list
The Department of Homeland Security removed the names of nearly 1,000 individuals suspected of terrorism ties from the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to newly released documents obtained by an advocacy group under a Freedom of Information Act request.
The Washington Free Beacon first reported in 2014 that the Obama administration secretly assembled a terrorist hands off list that enabled individuals with terrorist ties unfettered entrance into the United States.
The latest documents, obtained by Judicial Watch and released on Tuesday, appear to confirm these initial reports. They further disclose that at least 1,000 names were scrubbed from the U.S. Terrorist Screening Database as part of an administration effort to protect the civil rights of suspected individuals.
The documents appear to confirm charges that Obama administration changes created a massive hands off list, Judicial Watch said in a statement. Removed data from the terrorist watch list could have helped prevent the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
Lawmakers disclosed in 2014 that the administration has secretly assembled a terrorist hands off list that facilitated travel to the United States for those one flagged as a potential terror threat. Sources who spoke to the Free Beacon at the time disclosed that at least one individual, a Canadian Islamist leader tied to Hamas and Hezbollah, had been put on the list.
These new documents bolster allegations that the Obama administration may have removed information from a terrorist watch list that could have prevented the San Bernardino terrorist attack, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement. Philip Haney risked his career to blow the whistle on how the Obama administration created a hands off list of over 1,000 foreign nationals with potential terrorist ties.
Obama stooge Jeh Johnson, head of Obama's treacherous Department of Homeland Security.
What percentage of those names were Islamic? Who did the selection and review?
Try to remove 1000 names of dead people off voter rolls and see what happens.
Yet nothing ever happens. Nothing becomes of these things. It is mind boggling.
No chip on that shoulder. Uh uh...
All of obamas stooges have traitor face.
you mean obama’s MUSLIM stooge...
MY GUESS: 95%
Who did the selection and review?
MY GUESS: Valerie Jarrett
And the sold- out - to- our- enemies GOP-e and Congress still does nothing.
Eric Holder will bring immediate lawsuits to stop that.
Does anyone need more proof that Obastard WANTS terrorists in the US?
Valerie might have signed off, but 1000 is a big number. It takes organization to find that many. Which organization? CAIR? The MB? Remember if you’re Joe citizen and get on a bad list, there isn’t a well defined avenue of appeal.
Need to ‘scrub’ the list entirely.
Either the individuals on it are guilty of something and need to be arrested and charged, are public menaces and need to be deported (assuming they are not US citizens), or they need to be left alone.
Trust me, if it hasn’t already, lists like this one will be used against patriots as a means of extra-legal harassment.
Because the GOPe is more concerned with getting invited to the cocktail parties thrown by the Dems than doing their jobs.
Where’s Joe McCarthy when you need him?
Treason. Pure and simple.
Of course they did.
They let in the Boston murderers without passports.
It is the new “transparency” and “happy day treason”.
