Australian Intelligence Officer Disciplined for Linking Islam With Terrorism

Our own authorities are on the side of our enemies. How can we prevail under these circumstances like these?

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has charged an Army Reserve Intelligence Officer, Bernard Gaynor, for discussing links between Islam and terrorist activity.

The charges were laid [Monday], despite an internal investigation by the ADF’s Investigative Service finding that there was no basis for disciplinary action.

Gaynor is not backing down. As he observes,

“This kind of stupidity … explains the logical inconsistency between fighting a war against people who espouse violent Islamic beliefs while at the same time having an immigration policy that allows people with the same ideology to settle into [i.e., colonize] Australia.”

The same lunatic political correctness that allowed Nidal Malik Hasan to fester behind our own lines despite waving a pageant of red flags until he unleashed a terrorist bloodbath at Fort Hood continues to thrive.

Muslims have been trying to obliterate the West for centuries, but only now do they have the advantage of an alliance with our demented and treasonous ruling class.

Gaynor: In deep trouble for linking Islam with terrorism.

On a tip from Andrew in Australia.

    “Muslims have been trying to obliterate the West for centuries…”

    Yes they have, but now they don’t have to try so hard. There are people in American and Australia and other areas that will help the terrorist in their goals. But don;t call these people collaborators or traitors, just use their generic name… LIBERALS!

    The first step in solving a probem is admitting there is a proble. That’s why leftists never solve problems.

    Once the FBI, CIA etc. are done patting each other on the back for capturing and killing terrorists who’ve already beat the system and accomplished their jihadist acts, when will it be time for the grown-ups to examine how they missed them in the first place. Apparently, at a snail’s pace:

    “Post 9/11, we thought we had created a system that would allow for the free flow of information,” Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., said. “And I think there has been some stonewalls and stovepipes that have been reconstructed that were probably unintentional. We probably need to review that again.”

    Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, meanwhile, said she had “serious concerns” that agencies weren’t sharing information during the Boston bombing investigation.

    Earlier Tuesday, Napolitano addressed the question of Tsarnaev’s Russian trip during a hearing on immigration legislation before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Napolitano said “the system pinged when he was leaving the United States” for Russia in early 2012. But she noted: “By the time he returned, all investigations — the matter had been closed.”

    “The request stated that it was based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United States for travel to the country’s region to join unspecified underground groups,” the FBI acknowledged.

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was listed on the U.S. government’s highly classified central database of people it views as potential terrorists.

    But the list is so vast that authorities did not automatically keep close tabs on him, sources close to the bombing investigation said on Tuesday.

    Sources said Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s details were entered into TIDE, a database maintained by the National Counterterrorism Center, because the FBI spoke to him in 2011 while investigating a Russian tip-off that he had become a follower of radical Islamists.

    Terrorist ‘watch’ list: The list is so vast that authorities did not automatically keep close tabs on him, sources close to the bombing investigation said on Tuesday.

    The FBI found nothing to suggest he was an active threat, but all the same placed his name on the ‘Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment’ list. The FBI has not said what it did find about Tsarnaev.
    But the database, which holds more than half a million names, is only a repository of information on people who U.S. authorities see as known, suspected or potential terrorists from around the world.
    Because of its huge size, U.S. investigators do not routinely monitor everyone registered there, said U.S. officials familiar with the database.

    As of 2008, TIDE contained more than 540,000 names, although they represented about 450,000 actual people, because some of the entries are aliases or different name spellings for the same person. Fewer than 5 percent of the TIDE entries were U.S. citizens or legal residents, according to a description of the database on the NCTC website.

    The TIDE database is one of many federal security databases set up after the September 11, 2001, attacks. The database system has been criticized in the past for being too cumbersome, especially in light of an attempted attack on a plane in 2009. Intelligence and security agencies acknowledged in Congress that they had missed clues to the Detroit ‘underpants bomber’ Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Officials said after the incident that he had been listed in the TIDE database.
    Republican Senator Susan Collins said there were problems in sharing information ahead of the Boston bombings, too.

    ‘This is troubling to me that this many years after the attacks on our country in 2001 that we still seem to have stovepipes that prevent information from being shared effectively,’ she said. Collins was speaking after the FBI gave a closed-door briefing to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, but she did not elaborate.

    Tsarnaev was not put on the ‘no-fly’ list that would have banned him from boarding an airplane in the United States. Neither was he named on the Selectee List, which would have required him to be given extra security screening at airports.

    Another list, the Terrorist Screening Database, is a declassified version of the highly classified TIDE with fewer details about terrorist suspects. One source said Tsarnaev was on this list, too.

    After being put in the TIDE system, his name was entered in another database, this one maintained by the Homeland Security Department’s Customs and Border Protection bureau which is used to screen people crossing U.S. land borders and entering at airports or by sea.

    Tsarnaev was flagged on that database when he left the United States for Russia in January 2012 but no alarm was raised, presumably because the FBI had not identified him as a threat after the interview.
    When he returned from Russia six months later, he had already been automatically downgraded in the border database because there was no new information that required him to continue to get extra attention. So he did not get secondary inspection on his re-entry at New York’s JFK Airport. It was unclear exactly what the procedure was for such a downgrade.

    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said law enforcement should have kept a closer eye on Tsarnaev after the FBI spoke to him two years ago. The FBI should also have realized last week following the bombings that he was in databases, Graham told reporters.

    ‘After the bomb went off, don’t you think one of the first things the FBI would do is say, ‘Have we interviewed anybody in the Boston area that may fit the profile of doing this?’ How could his name not pop up, the older brother? And when you have the photo the whole world is looking at, how could we not match that photo with him already being in the system?’ Graham said.

    Sen. Graham raises valid questions — ones that should demand full and complete answers before any further discussions of the Gang of 8 Traitors Amnesty bill that various traitors in the country, Republican and Democrap, are seeking to ram through before we have answers.

    The evidence is mounting that we didn’t know about Tsarnaev, and don’t know about other Islamic radicals in this country, because that the FBI’s hands are tied by the Obama Regimes’ incessant obsequious dhimmitude to all things Muslim:

    “The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s failure to recognize political Islam as a driver of jihadist terrorism is partly to blame for the FBI not identifying one of the Boston Marathon bombers in 2011 as a security risk, according to U.S. officials and private counterterrorism analysts.

    “The fact is religion has been expunged from counterterrorism training,” said Sebastian Gorka, a counterterrorism specialist with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. “The FBI can’t talk about Islam and they can’t talk about jihad.”

    Critics said the FBI’s failure to properly investigate Tsarnaev was a repeat of the bureau’s lapse in missing advance signs of the Islamist radicalization of accused Fort Hood massacre shooter, Army Maj. Nidal Hasan.

    “Again, the FBI has been aware of a future terrorist’s escalating religious radicalization and did nothing about it because bureau policies prohibited them from doing so,” Poole said.

    The officials said the problem is that most field agents understand the nature of the threat but have been hamstrung by policies imposed by senior FBI leaders who are acting under orders of political appointees in the Obama administration, including Islamic advisers to the White House. The policies have prevented the FBI from conducting aggressive counterterrorism investigations of Islamic radicals or those who are in the process of being radicalized.

    This is Imam Obama’s version of Gorelick’s wall, jeopardizing American lives, all in the name of not wanting to offend those he says he will stand with should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. The wind is blowing at gale force, yet our rulers continue to bury their stupid heads in the sand at the nation’s peril – lest we offend Islam.

    Uh, oh! Gaynor is a truth teller! Can’t have that! Fire his ass, see he never works again, bomb his house, threaten his family (all the good Liberal tactics)! Anything to shut him up and keep him quiet for all time.
    No such thing as the “Truth” anymore, just what libtardism permits . . .
    So long, Australia. But don’t worry, we here in the U.S. are right behind you, and catching up (see the story above on U.S. taxpayers subsidizing the Boston Marathon bombers to do their dirty work).
    Ah, ain’t life in today’s world just grand?
