Robert is right, this is all intentional by Obama and his minions.
Ex-counterterror official: “We don’t have enough FBI agents who understand Islam”
In October 2011, the Obama Administration banned all mention of Islam and jihad in connection with terrorism from counterterror training, for the FBI as well as other agencies. Three years later, the former Director of the National Counterterrorism Center laments that we don’t have enough FBI agents who understand Islam.
But that is what the Obama Administration wanted. They wanted an FBI full of agents who didn’t know anything about Islam, because they wanted to pretend that Islam had no connection with terrorism. Counter-terror materials were scrubbed of all mention of Islam and jihad, and FBI trainers (including me) who spoke about the motives and goals of the jihadists were dismissed. And now Leiter wonders why agents don’t know anything about Islam.
Leiter’s solution? More Muslim agents. And no doubt when they are hired, there will be no serious attempt to determine whether these agents have any sympathies for or ties to the global jihad. The vetting agents won’t know how to make such determinations, and to make too thorough an investigation would be “Islamophobic.”
