Remember Sharif Mobley? In March, I told you about the Somalian Muslim Al-Qaeda member from New Jersey, who worked at THREE U.S. nuclear facilities, despite showing his extremist side as early as high school. He is now being held in Yemen for his involvement in Al-Qaeda terrorist attacks, including the murder of a policeman and the serious wounding of another.
Same Old Song & Dance: Qaeda Terrorist Sharif Mobley Worked @ US Nuke Plants Thanks to . . . BUSH
Well, it’s now come to light that when Mobley worked at the various U.S. nuclear facilities, he frequently praised jihad. Mobley worked at the nuclear facilities from 2002-2008. Hmmm . . . who was President then? Obama? That’s right, it was the “Counterterrorism President,” George W. Bush. Miss him yet? Think Sarah Palin and the other substandard Republican choices will be any different? Only if you’re on crack.
A New Jersey man accused of joining Al Qaeda in Yemen spoke openly of militant views while working at American nuclear plants, according to a report by the inspector general of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that proposes tightening personnel security rules.
The man, Sharif Mobley, who is charged by Yemeni authorities with murdering a hospital guard during an escape attempt in March, said he told others in his labor union: “We are brothers in the union, but if a holy war comes, look out,” said the report from the inspector general, Hubert T. Bell.
Fellow nuclear plant workers said Mr. Mobley had referred to non-Muslims as “infidels” and had visited “unusual” Web sites on his personal computer, including one showing a mushroom cloud, the report said.
The report, prepared at the request of Senator Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, recommended improving plant employee training on how to detect and report “behaviors associated with terrorist intent.” It proposed that regulatory commission officials should get direct access to a nuclear industry personnel database and suggested more frequent matching of employee names against terrorist watch lists.
The inspector general also suggested requiring disclosure of any foreign travel by nuclear plant employees so that they could be questioned about their destinations and activities abroad.
Much of the report was withheld from the public release because it “revealed security vulnerabilities” at nuclear facilities, said Stephen D. Dingbaum, the commission’s assistant inspector general for audits.
Senator Schumer said in a statement on Monday that the Mobley case “showed that we had to devise and implement a much tougher security system to protect our nuclear plants from infiltration.” He praised the inspector general’s report for offering “concrete, actionable recommendations that can be put in place immediately.” . . .
Edwin Lyman, who studies nuclear safety at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said existing rules did not account for temporary workers who migrate from plant to plant, as Mr. Mobley did, doing maintenance work during scheduled shutdowns. No new background investigation is required when a worker has been off the job for several months, he said.
“This report does not go far enough to close that loophole, in our opinion,” Mr. Lyman said.
Hmmm . . . why didn’t President Bush care about any of this or address any of these concerns in one of the many years after 9/11? He didn’t think for a second that it might be of interest to look at the foreign travel of nuclear facility employees? If he couldn’t even remember 9/11–which happened on his watch–I guess he couldn’t remember Wen Ho Lee, either. It didn’t occur to him that maybe we ought to match nuclear facility employees’ names with all the terrorism databases? Uh, what the heck did he do in the seven-plus years after 9/11 . . . other than kissing Muslim ass no less than Obama kisses it now?
By the way, the man Bush put in charge of overseeing nuclear facilities during a big chunk of this time was none other than pan-Muslim, CAIR supporting, Lebanese Arab Spencer Abraham, the then-Secretary of Energy. Yup, the same Spencer Abraham who refused to condemn Yasser Arafat’s homicide bombings at pizza shops and who refused to end his vacation in England when America had a giant blackout in 2003. The same Spencer Abraham who willingly gave tours of our nuclear facilities and how we secure them to representatives of Iran, the United Arab Emirates, and other extremist nations. The same Spencer Abraham who–as a U.S. Senator–sent nearly $100 million in U.S. taxpayer money to Hezbollah and who refused to fund a tracking system so we could track foreign aliens who enter the U.S. The same Spencer Abraham, whom Fred Thompson employed as his campaign manager, and for whom hypocrite Mark Levin made excuses like he’d never make for Democrats. Still miss Bush?
Hey, since this is yet another example of Bush incompetence and politically correct pandering to Muslims, I guess I should repeat the chant: “Bush isn’t President. Obama is.” So, I guess I should blame him for Bush doing nothing, right? Yeah, that’s the ticket.
The same people telling me to do that are the same morons who brought me eight years of faux-conservative Bush and are gonna give me Sarah Palin or some other similar worse-than-even-Bush moron as the GOP nominee against Obama. Good luck with that.
Thanks, tea partiers.
