US Nuke Worker Who Joined Qaeda Spoke of Jihad, Stayed on Job – Guess Who Was Prez?

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

Hi Debbie,
your site seems to be one of the few places where we can find out about the truth. None of the mainstream media are talking about the kindness shown by the rabbis who visited the West Bank mosque that was torched.The rabbis even donated Korans to replace the ones burned by the settlers.


This is so typical of the mainstream media to hide the compassion shown by conservatives. But I was wondering about something else. Do you think that perhaps the Palestinians torched the mosque and burned the Korans themselves?

Bush had to work with who we had at the time, 911 was a big wake up call to everyone, Bush only had a slim margine of repubs in congress, then not. Yes i miss him compared to the anti- colonialist communist we have now. He also finally took the fight to the islamo-facsist and not just play defense.

JH: HUH????? Stop making excuses for Bush. He actively pandered to Muslims and enabled them. That you don’t get that and blame his 8 years of incompetence on “who he had to work with,” then you are a moron and a big part of the problem. People like you brought me Bush and Sarah Palin and Obama. Thanks for nothing. Actually, worse than nothing. He took no “fight to the Islamo-fascists.” He took American billions and soldiers’ lives to give Iraq to Iran-backed Shi’ites. If you don’t know that, you are too dumb to vote. DS

    Debbie’s right. Overthrowing Saddam Hussein solved nothing. The Arabs proved themselves incapable of living together and when they weren’t killing each other, they were killing our soldiers. Bush should have withdrawn the troops and cut our losses once it happened. By keeping them there for years, he guaranteed a Democratic takeover of this country. Don’t blame Obama for his screwups in Iraq and at home. Put it where it belongs.

    And no – I still don’t miss him yet.

Well, obviously George Bush during his second term in office pandered to Arab interests and became an outright Islamophile. but I shudder to think what would have happened, if after 9/11, Al Gore had been elected President. Or, just as bad as Ali Gore, there’s Kerry. Right now (Kerry as head of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee) Kerry wants to bring Muslim “professionals” into the United States…(and, probably pregnant ones at that). Yeah, now there’s something to really look forward to a Muslim “make work” project (especially given the number of unemployed Americans!) Good Grief. but, hey, that Democrats — always thinking about Muslims First.

JS: HUH? Were you asleep during Bush’s first term. He pandered to Muslims during his first AND second terms. Sorry, but you give too much credit to Bush. The only difference between a Bush Presidency and a Gore one is a few Supreme Court Justices and billions wasted in a war to hand over Iraq to Shi’ite Muslims backed by Iran. Otherwise, Bush pandered to Muslims even more than Gore, which is why he beat Gore in getting the Muslim endorsement for President. And, uh, sorry, but it’s not just Democrats always thinking about Muslims first. It’s Bush and Republicans. Did you not read this post? Clearly, you didn’t. Stop making excuses. Bush brought plenty of Muslims into the country, including pregnant ones, and he refused to stop a Muslim Medicaid fraud ring that brought them here. If you say, “but he was better than Gore” and “but he was better than Kerry,” then, you are the problem. I don’t want just a tad better than Gore and Kerry. I want a real conservative and someone who is against Jihad. Bush did more to enable jihad than ANY other President. And Gore and Kerry would have been no worse in that category. Wake up.DS

J.S. on October 5, 2010 at 3:47 pm

    Republicans have equally pandered to Islam. Who was the Prez who endorsed a Palestinian state? It wasn’t Obama.

    Yes, Obama is continuing all of the things Bush did but if you think for a minute the Republicans will put a stop to it, think again.

    Neither major political party recognizes the Islamist threat facing this country and is prepared to do something about it.

    And if one doesn’t comprehend this, then one is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    NormanF on October 5, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Well, you only get one vote for any President of the United States. Half the time, it’s a crap shoot. And, one can always — in retrospect critique and enumerate all the things Prez X failed to do or what disastrous policy he did adopt during his time in office. (Just as with the Iraq war — hindsight is always 20/20). No President is perfect. You could condemn Mr. Clinton for any number of gaffes during his two terms. He wasn’t “perfect” either. That was then, this is now. (And, also, we can’t say what Gore or Kerry would have been or would have done — it’s just useless speculation of “well, maybe they would have done X!” then again, maybe they wouldn’t have. Who knows? And, of course, they’re always going to be claiming whatever the public now wishes to hear. that’s politics.)

But, i can tell you this much that if Obama is running in 2012 — I will NOT vote for him. Absolutely NOT. And, my suspicion is that Obama will only grow worse as time goes on. He is a “slow learner” to say the least — he does not correct himself when he makes mistakes…He simply pursues the same strategy, only more vigorously.

JS: HUH??? Speak for yourself. I voted in primaries. I was a delegate. There is more to do than the “one vote” for President. And you didn’t do it. I criticized Bush’s pandering to Muslims when he was running in 2000 and in 2004 and every year in between and after. Where were you? Asleep. I don’t need hindsight. I have foresight. You do not because you refuse to listen and critically think. And that’s the problem. But your hindsight excuses are pathetic. Wake. UP. Oh, and by the way, here’s a tip: Bill Clinton didn’t pander to Muslims even a fraction of what Bush did, and he limited trade with Iran to $8 million. Bush expanded it to hundreds of millions. The guy was a fraud and enabler of Muslims. I warned. You ignored. You now make excuses. That’s the definition of useless. And, yes, if you bothered to read, I know exactly what Gore would have done b/c both he and Bush tried to get the Muslim endorsement and BUSH got it. Get a clue. Bush also got us into Iraq and gave it to Iranian Shi’ites. Please stop sleeping. Obama will get re-elected because people like you will give us another Bush or worse. That’s why we have Obama in the first place. Hellooooo . . . ? DS

    The Muslim vote – that’s the same thing that’s doing Europe in and if you think any one is going to do something about Islamo-pandering, you might as well wait for the arrival of Godot.

    I’m still waiting for a conservative who isn’t chasing after it and who wants to really put a stop to it. And until conservatives stop making excuses for candidates who don’t care about the real and present danger – Islam – facing this country, we will get more of it and things will get worse with time.

    What we don’t see, judging by the comments Debbie responded to tonight on this board is people waking up to make sure we have someone who can really beat Obama in 2012.

    That isn’t happening. And the threat remains unaddressed.

    NormanF on October 5, 2010 at 10:03 pm

I’m an overseas voter. Given the current roster on the Republican side of the ticket (I don’t see any viable Republican candidates for President — and it’s very late in the game), I fully expect Obama to be re-elected in 2012…(barring some miracle, of course).

JS: I agree with you on that 100%. Unfortunately there are no Republicans running for Prez who I believe will beat Obama. DS

J.S. on October 5, 2010 at 7:38 pm

I agree with much of what you Debbie is saying here. The PERCEPTION of Bush II is in sharp contrast to his deeds, especially with regards to immigration and trade with the Muslim world…btw, back around 2002-2003 I had a brief conversation with a Sr Manager at Haliburton – Cheney’s company. He said they had their own IT shop set up offshore. Hmmm, “India ?”, I asked. Not quite. …”Pakistan.”….
On a more urgent note, I feel that nuclear energy will and should play a more dominant role in N America’s future…. However, there will have to be draconian measures, including profiling in hiring and selecting suppliers,vendors,etc. if that is to be a success – from a security perspective.

Not Ovenready on October 6, 2010 at 12:58 am

Sorry Debbie, but you consistently fail to see the big picture. How is George W. Bush responsible for one angry black man working in a nuclear facility exercising his 1st Amendment rights? If I wanted to hear incoherent Bush bashing I would subscribe to the New York Times on-line. George Bush killed more Muslim extremists than any other president in history yet you resent him for not declaring war on all of Islam. You give our “President” Obama a free pass when it’s been learned he funneled $75,000 through the Woods foundation to a recently arrested terrorist living here in the U.S. I became interested in your website when I learned you published information about Obama’s fraudulent Selective Service records. That was a long time ago and I grow annoyed at being insulted because my views on the Bush administration are not in lock step with yours. By the way, I do not drink, smoke or do drugs as you once suggested.
