This past Friday, the FBI celebrated its 100th birthday. As I noted then, it’s not cause for celebration. This once great law enforcement agency is now a shell of what it once was and is composed mostly of politically-correct Islamopandering bureaucrats.
One of those Islamopanderers, Michigan FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge William Kowalski, is retiring on Friday. But it’s long overdue. I’ve followed Kowalski since 9/11, and the brown on the tip of his nose is mixed with falafel and shawarmeh. Instead of investigating Muslims involved in the funding and material support of terrorism, he hung out with and pandered to them.
I last saw Special Agent Kowalski exercising his lip-to-butt press at a Dearborn Heights mosque, where he applauded enthusiastically as the imam, the former spiritual leader of Ayatollah Khomeini’s navy, told the many feds in attendance that “what goes on in the South of Lebanon [Hezbollah] is not terrorism. It’s legitimate resistance.”
At the time, I was dressed as a Muslim woman, and Special Agent Bill Kowalski must have felt warm all over for smiling at me and trying to let my car leave the mosque before his. Oh, the charming noblesse of FBI agents for smiling at and being nice to Muslim woman (or who they thought was a Muslima)–makes them feel sooooo good about themselves.
Here’s a tad more from that experience at the mosque, from my July 2006 recounting of it:
At the Town Hall meeting, a crying woman asked the federal officials why her husband was in jail because of “credit card problems.” She said he was arrested after FBI agents raided her home and found a poster on the wall of “our leader, Hassan Nasrallah” [head of Hezbollah]. FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge William Kowalski ran to her side, gave her his business card and patted her on the back.
The woman, Rania Rahal, and her husband, Nemr Ali Rahal–both Elahi congregants–were later indicted for credit card, bank, and mortgage fraud in a scheme to obtain $500,000. When agents raided their home, they found a video of a 2002 Hezbollah rally attended by Rahal, a video entitled, “A Martyr Speaks About Martyrs,” and a Hezbollah recruitment video, in addition to a photo of Rahal tearing and burning the American flag. In February, Customs agents at the Detroit U.S.-Canada border found “military-quality” explosives on Rahal’s and his sons’ passports. The Rahals have since pled guilty. At Mr. Rahal’s sentencing, instead of being contrite, he apologized for ruining his credit record.
After that, Kowalski bragged to a news anchor in north central Michigan about sending his “B-Team” of FBI counterterrorist agents in a deliberate attempt to crush the case a local prosecutor brought against Palestinian multiple disposable cellphone buyers who took photos of grates and the support structure of Michigan’s Mackinac Bridge.
While the prosecutor had strong evidence the Palestinians who drove to Michigan’s north were sending the phones for use as IEDs in terrorist attacks and that their photos were meant to plan an attack on the bridge, Kowalski quickly swooped in with his “B-Team” and declared the photos of grates “tourist photos.” Hmmm . . . when I’m a tourist, that ain’t the kinda photos I’m taking. After that, Kowalski’s B-Team and his fellow pan-Islamist U.S. Attorney (now a Bush federal judge) Stephen Murphy managed to usurp and destroy the local prosecutor’s case against the terrorists. They wanted the case to go away, and Bill Kowalski helped make it go away.
After all, that was good for bid’ness–at least the kind of business in which the FBI is involved in today, with the number one goal being having a good relationship with the local extremist Muslim community. And the utter pandering of the FBI’s Michigan office to the most extreme Muslims possible was the baby of FBI Special Agent William Kowalski.
He orchestrated, for example, a pander-fest at an extremist Sunni mosque in Warren, Michigan, where several FBI agents sucked up to Pakistani mosque members tied to Tanzeem-e-Islami, an anti-Semitic, pan-terrorist group. All in the name of “outreach,” this mythical holy grail with zero benefit to America’s national security.
And when, in March, federal prosecutors indicted Muthanna Al-Hanooti–a man Kowalski and other high-ranking FBI agents constantly feted–for being a spy for Saddam Hussein (after knowing about it for several years and doing nothing while his charity laundered money to HAMAS and Al-Qaeda for mass murder), Kowalski organized an apology session in which the feds told Muslims they were sorry for enforcing the law and going after terrorists:
About 50 people attended the meeting Thursday; half were federal officials from the FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies; the others were Arab-American and Muslim leaders.
FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Bill Kowalski said the meeting was “part of our efforts to continue an open dialogue with the community.”
But no worries. When real terrorist threats arose, he also rose to the occasion . . . like when he sent FBI counter-terrorism agents to investigate the League of Women Voters. (Not kidding.)
There’s a reason FBI award revokee, marriage fraud perpetrator, and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad is sorry to see Bill Kowalski go:
Kowalski earned the respect of Arab-American and Muslim leaders. . . . “We are going to miss his smile,” said Imad Hamad, regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. “There’s a personal aspect that attests to his leadership. He’s always been a true professional.”
Yeah, that “personal aspect” is ass-kissing the enemy.
Make no mistake, the retirement of FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Bill Kowalski won’t end the pandering to Islamofascists and the compromising and quashing of necessary investigations and arrests of Islamic terrorists and their enablers. He’ll be replaced by another shishka-brownnoser. Kowalski is just one of many FBI agent bureaucrats around the country who’d rather sup on shish tawook and break pita with terrorists than do the hard work of investigating and arresting them and PO’ing them.
“When I think about an FBI guy, that’s him,” said Walter Reynolds, an assistant special agent in charge in Detroit who works closely with Kowalski as the official in charge of intelligence operations.
Yup, sadly, Kowalski’s Islamopander M.O. is now S.O.P. for “an FBI guy.” And with a guy like Reynolds, in charge of intelligence operations at the Michigan FBI, it’s no wonder they never discovered who double agent Nada Nadim Prouty and what she was doing. They simply didn’t want to see it, even though they knew better.
“It’s tough to leave the FBI,” he said. “I bleed bureau blue.”
And HAMAS and Hezbollah green, too. Kowalski told the Detroit Newsistan that
he believes enhanced training and recruitment standards make today’s agents better-suited to meet the [terrorism] threat.
Wrong. Enhanced tabouli-eating skills make them better suited to pander and enhance the threat. Not beat or even “meet” it.
Kowalski will now join The Rehmann Group, a Detroit area business consulting firm that helps corporations with fraud investigations. Interesting, a fraud helps investigate fraud. Well, you know what they say: takes one to know one.
Let’s hope for his clients’ sake that William Kowalski investigates fraud a little differently than he “investigates” Islamic terrorism.
