Hmm . . . Who is the Congressman the NSA Tried to Tape? Congressman Had Contacts w/ Islamic Terrorist; Was It Obama Trans Sec LaHood or “Jihad Darrell”?
By Debbie Schlussel
Well, I’m back from observing the last part of Passover. And, while I was away, new disclosures came out about National Security Agency wiretapping, from Obama officials opposed to it and who claimed it was “exceeded the law.”
But the interesting thing is that in the New York Times NSA wiretaps story, there’s this very interesting disclosure about an unnamed U.S. Congressman on a delegation trip to the Middle East who had contacts with an Islamic terrorist. Neither the Congressman nor the terrorist is identified, but I have my strong convictions as to the identity (see below). We’ll never know for sure, because the surveillance was tabled. Don’t you want to know who that Congressman is? Wasn’t that in the interest of our national security to know which elected Representative was consorting with an apparent Islamic terrorist and the content of their conversations? This is “against the law” to wiretap?
One of These Three Congressmen Had Contact With an Islamic Terrorist . . .
[I]n one previously undisclosed episode, the N.S.A. tried to wiretap a member of Congress without a warrant, an intelligence official with direct knowledge of the matter said.
The agency believed that the congressman, whose identity could not be determined, was in contact – as part of a Congressional delegation to the Middle East in 2005 or 2006 – with an extremist who had possible terrorist ties and was already under surveillance, the official said. The agency then sought to eavesdrop on the congressman’s conversations, the official said.
The official said the plan was ultimately blocked because of concerns from some intelligence officials about using the N.S.A., without court oversight, to spy on a member of Congress.
So who is Congressman X? Here are my three finalists. And I believe with every bone in my body that it’s one of these:
* It could be Barack Hussein Obama’s new Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood, then a Republican Congressman from Illinois with a record of being soft on Hezbollah and other Islamic terrorist groups. LaHood, a liberal Republican of Lebanese descent, has a history of supporting pan-terrorist causes, like memorializing and honoring American flag-burning, pro-Palestinian activist Rachel Corrie. He was a member of several Mid-East Congressional delegations. (Read the full scoop on Ray LaHood, pan-Arabist extraordinaire.)
* It could be Republican Congressman Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell,” of California, also a member of many Congressional Delegations to the Mid-East. Issa repeatedly praised Hezbollah, met with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, and even supped with and taste-tested for Yasser Arafat at the height of Palestinian homicide bombings after 9/11. He took money from the Saudi’s paid lobbyist and lobbied against sanctions on Syria.
Sources say he’s in cahoots with several Islamic terrorists and has had many phone and personal contacts with them pre- and post-9/11. Issa–of Lebanese descent–lied about his military record, and also apparently committed arson, insurance fraud, car theft, and holding a former employee up at gunpoint . . . all reasons Karl Rove made him drop out of the California Gubernatorial recall race in favor of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He also said that the 9/11 attacks were “simply a plane crash” and introduced legislation to stop the government from using classified evidence against Islamic terrorists (which he did at the behest of CAIR and convicted Islamic Jihad founder and frontman, Sami Al-Arian). My money’s on this dude, Jihad Darrell, as “Congressman X.” (Read the full scoop on him.)
* And it could be Democrat Nick Joe Rahall of West Virginia, also of Lebanese descent and also a member of several Congressional delegations to the Mid-East. Don’t let his “down home”-sounding name fool ya. He went on several network Sunday Morning news shows to defend Hezbollah against Israel during the Hezbollah-Israel war of 2006 and has one of the most anti-Israel voting records in Congress.
All three of this Congressional Axis of Evil went on Mid-East Congressional trips in 2005 and/or 2006, and in fact, went on at least one such trip together, too.
My bet is it’s one of these three, and like I say, if I had to put money on it, Jihad Darrell’s the guy.
One day, we may learn the true identity of Congressman X, the guy elected by Americans who consults Islamic terrorists.
But I think I already know who it is. And I own a domain name bearing his name.
