On Terrorists w/ U.S. Criminal Records: The Stunning News is That Top Terrorism Officials are “Stunned”

By Debbie Schlussel
I’m not sure why everyone–including FOX News’ “terrorist fist jab” chick, E.D. Hill–is so shocked that many of the Islamic terrorists we catch in the Middle East have criminal records and arrest warrants here in the U.S.
We’ve long known that we’ve made it easy for Islamic terrorists to get into the U.S. undetected, very easy for them to stay here and commit crimes, and very difficult to get rid of them. That’s only changed for the worse under George W. Bush, and will be his Presidency’s historical legacy many years into the future when its wreckage becomes painful enough for us to feel.


Islamic Terrorists in Our Midst Give America The Finger

Before They Give Us the Fingerprint

That’s why unlike many “stunned” people–including so-called terrorism experts who don’t actually know much–I wasn’t surprised by the Washington Post’s front-pager about this. Take special note of Frances Townsend–Bush’s clueless, incompetent national security “expert” and her reaction. That reaction alone should tell you how dimwitted and unqualified she was for the job. I pity the companies that now hire her as a “security consultant,” since they’re pouring their money down an empty pit, in her case:

In the six-and-a-half years that the U.S. government has been fingerprinting insurgents, detainees and ordinary people in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Horn of Africa, hundreds have turned out to share an unexpected background, FBI and military officials said. They have criminal arrest records in the United States.
There was the suspected militant fleeing Somalia who had been arrested on a drug charge in New Jersey. And the man stopped at a checkpoint in Tikrit who claimed to be a dirt farmer but had 11 felony charges in the United States, including assault with a deadly weapon.
The records suggest that potential enemies abroad know a great deal about the United States because many of them have lived here, officials said. The matches also reflect the power of sharing data across agencies and even countries, data that links an identity to a distinguishing human characteristic such as a fingerprint.
“I found the number stunning,” said Frances Fragos Townsend, a security consultant and former assistant to the president for homeland security. “It suggested to me that this was going to give us far greater insight into the relationships between individuals fighting against U.S. forces in the theater and potential U.S. cells or support networks here in the United States.”

“Stunning”?! Where the heck has Fran Townsend been for the last decade? Well, sadly, for a significant chunk of it, she’s been at the White House, which should explain our porous borders and limitless Islamic immigration. Oh, and by the way, Townsend was responsible for the government NOT pursuing various top HAMAS and Al-Qaeda terrorists uncovered by FBI counterterrorism agent Robert Wright. She put the kabosh on it, until it was too late. When a few–like HAMAS operative Mohammed Salah–were finally pursued, it was too late. (Salah beat the terrorism charges.)
Wow, was she ever an affirmative action hire! [For those about to call me racist, the chick is White. But she clearly only got her job because she has a uterus, not because she has a brain.] For the record, Townsend’s hubby was a classmate and friend of Bush at Andover and Yale (gee, I wonder how she got the job–I’m sure cronyism had nooooothing to do with it).
And to be fair, we must forgive Townsend for not recognizing that terrorists were entering our country, committing crimes, and then leaving–all with ease. After all, Townsend was too busy wearing hijabs and hanging at mosques and pretending to be a supermodel, to actually concern herself with national security (see pics herein). She was also a self-anointed White House Sexpert, declaring “Bin Laden is impotent” (I think a gazillion terrorists are proof positive to the contrary).



Fran Townsend: “Stunned” Former Bush National Security Sexpert

@ Mosque & Pretending to be a Supermodel

As they analyzed the results, they were surprised to learn that one out of every 100 detainees was already in the FBI’s database for arrests. Many arrests were for drunken driving, passing bad checks and traffic violations, FBI officials said.
“Frankly I was surprised that we were getting those kind of hits at all,” recalled Townsend, who left government in January. They identified “a potential vulnerability” to national security the government had not fully appreciated, she said.

Ya think? Only an idiot like Fran Townsend wouldn’t have recognized this actual (not “potential”) vulnerability to national security in the last seven years.

The people being fingerprinted had come from the Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan.

So, now–and actually for many years–we know that we are letting these dangerous Islamic terrorist criminals into our midst with ease. It’s not that we know about it. It’s, what the heck are we gonna finally do about it?
And that’s where the true malpractice and negligence is, because our government won’t do a thing to crack down on these people. Yes, they are refusing entry to those whose fingerprints they have, who h ave already committed crimes on our soil. But they’re doing nothing to stop the ones with clean records, who will soon commit the same crimes.
Do we really think Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah send people into America with dirty records? They’re far smarter than that. But we will do nothing, in the name of showing Muslim countries how open and tolerant we are. And that’s why more and more Islamic terrorists will come and go from America and commit crimes. And our borders will get easier and easier to traverse.
That’s why the article is not what’s disturbing. What’s disturbing is that those who should know better are “stunned” by this info, and that those who DO know better, won’t do a damned thing to change the system.
And part of the problem is ICE–Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Blackface expert and incompetent ICE chieftess, Julie L. Myers told USA Today that her main priority is the ICE show raids on employers and workplaces. She doesn’t care about visa overstays and violators–the category rampant with terrorists and criminals. That’s why these terrorists got in, obtained criminal records, and mostly never faced trial. They weren’t properly located, detained, tried, and jailed.
Myers is more concerned with the benign Latino plucking chicken feathers from kosher poultry, so she can get on TV. Islamic terrorists? Myers is too busy having dinner with them at the Hezbollah Social Club to deport ’em.
America . . . Desperate But Not Serious.

All Townsend is is a photo-op, affirmative-action person and that’s why she was hired, along with her connections. The companies that hire her will not be hiring her for security — they will be buying government access & government contracts by hiring her. It seems like the only terrorists we get rid of are the prisoners at Guantanamo who we release so they can commit more terrorism. Enforcement against terrorists has been inadequate for years; she may have actually known about it, quite likely approved for political reasons, but of course she has to act surprised.

They’re stunned?!
This isn’t kindergarden for crying out loud. These guys claim to have professional credentials, and act like my 5-year-old understanding where steam comes from for the first time (which was a fun lesson today).
If this is how the professional governemnt of the New Deal and Great Society is, then we need to end this NOW! I will put this Congress over my knee and take a switch to their pink hides for such acts.

Idiots. If they aren’t smart enough to think about keeping out terrorists in the first place, what made anybody think they were smart enough to think clearly about the criminal predispositions of these animals? Who is always selling counterfiet clothes, hijacked cigs, and lack the most basic personal hygiene? Hello? Anybody home?

Oh yeah, and there’s the murders of innocent people.
Sharia law, etc.

ONLY a Washington INSIDER, or Democrat, or “who you know Republican Appointee”, could be…shocked at this fact.
Here is another FACT, for all of those “in denial”, LARGE PHYSCIAL FENCES (double fences manned by armed military) actually DO keep out ILLEGALS from our “Southern Border”.
WHEN will this Country, and all of it’s “leaders”, realize that these TERRORISTS are not “playing” in some “virtual world” concerning KILLING Americans – Christians – Jewish people! This is FOR KEEPS so WAKE UP!
As for all of the complacent AMERICAN CITIZENS it is (past) time for you all to start enforcing your rights (to vote, to have secure borders, protect your identity, to have federal laws enforced, own a gun, etc.) before your rights are…gone.
September 11, 2001 (sadly) did not happen…overnight. These TERRORISTS, who (contrary to what Rosie O’Donnell and her gang of ignorant progressives/LIBERALS) think…just want to MURDER us here in America.
To those elected, and appointed, whose “sworn duty” is to PROTECT AMERICA my advice is…do your job regardless of the “PC Factor” (i.e. politically correct). It is NOT enough to put in “4-5 hours of work” a few days a month. Let’s start seeing some RESULTS followed by EFFORTS…and not just “reactionary sound bites”. Until these TERRORISTS are eradicated, and we SNUFF OUT all of the internal Anti-American Propaganda (see Fairfax County Saudi Arabia “school” as an example) – whereever it is, then we will NEVER be…safe.
RISE UP AMERICAN CITIZENS…before you are (Permanently) put down. NUFF SAID.
