Barack Obama’s new Homeland Security chief is a friend of Islamic terrorists and their ACLU buddies.
You’ve no doubt heard that Barack Obama appointed Jeh Johnson, yet another lawyer with zero experience in law enforcement, to head the Department of Homeland Security. But his lack of experience as a cop is not the only thing objectionable about him. Far more disturbing is the fact that Johnson fought for the rights of Islamic terrorists. That’s why “human rights” groups a/k/a terrorists’ and criminals’ rights groups are applauding the choice. Although Johnson’s credited with convincing Obama to keep the Gitmo military tribunals, I say,”BFD,” especially when you consider how he fought for terrorists’ rights and many of the Gitmo vacationers have been released to commit more terrorism again, anyway.
Oh, and his biggest “accomplishment” is wider acceptance of gays and lesbians in the military, and he is behind the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. New definition for “homeland security”: season tickets to the WNBA and new “sensible shoes” for all ICE agents and Federal Air Marshals.
At the Pentagon, Mr. Johnson was an architect of the Obama administration’s counterterrorism framework, and the president often relied on him to mark the elusive line where national-security imperatives impinge too far on civil liberties. . . . Mr. Johnson also proposed several changes to the [DS: Gitmo military] commissions that gave defendants greater protections, such as limits on hearsay evidence. . . .
He was particularly proud of steering the military toward fairer treatment of gays and lesbians. The efforts culminated in a repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, a move that allowed gays to serve openly.
This jerk actually thinks that Islam isn’t at war with us and will eventually go away and give up. From USA Today:
He played a key role in repealing the Pentagon’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that banned openly gay servicemembers. . . .
During a speech at Britain’s Oxford University last year, Johnson said that the nation’s war on terrorism should not be endless, and the focus should shift to law enforcement and intelligence operations. “War must be regarded as a finite, extraordinary and unnatural state of affairs,” Johnson said. “In its 12th year, we must not accept the current conflict, and all that it entails, as the new normal.” . . .
Elisa Massimino, president of Human Rights First, said Johnson “grappled with the challenges of protecting national security while respecting human rights and upholding American ideals” during his time at the Pentagon. “These are key issues in the Department of Homeland Security, and we would welcome the opportunity to work with him should he be confirmed to lead DHS,” she said in a statement.
Um, there’s a reason why Human Rights First is having multiple orgasms over this guy. He’s more worried about the terrorists they shill for than your safety.
Homeland Security couldn’t be less connected with actually keeping America secure. And, with the nomination of this schmuck to head DHS, look for that to get worse.
Jeh Johnson will see his job the same way NASA’s chief saw his: to increase outreach to Muslims. DHS is already well on its way in this category and has been since its creation under the Bush Administration.
Halal birthday cakes for all the jihadists arrested and detained! Boom.
