“A Touchy Area”: Detroit Won’t Give Firefighters Anti-Terror Intelligence Info B/c It Would Offend Arabs

By Debbie Schlussel
It’s about time (actually well past it) that firefighters around the country are receiving intelligence training on how to spot terrorist activity. We know that Al-Qaeda, Fatah/PLO, and HAMAS have all committed arson as a method of terrorism. And firefighters are in a unique position to spot things–such as dangerous chemicals and bombmaking materials–that others may not. This isn’t about people snooping. It’s about firefighters getting intelligence info on what to look for in relation to what’s going on overseas.
But the ACLU and the usual suspects are upset about it. And that–not the good aspects of the training and how useful it is–is the topic of an AP story by Eileen Sullivan.
Not in Detroitistan. It might offend Muslims . . .


World Trade Center, Post 9/11 Attack, 2001

But don’t worry. The same AP story tells us that the City of Detroit a/k/a “D-Mecca” will NOT train firemen on how to spot terrorists or dangerous activity because the city does not want to offend Arabs (the story says Arabs, but what they really mean is Muslims). Says Detroit Deputy Fire Commissioner Seth Doyle:

That’s a touchy area. I don’t want our folks to be put in a position where they’re reporting something that creates a situation where there was really no real problem in the first place.

Ri-i-ight. Like Muslim Arab guys taking flying lessons and not wanting to learn how to take off or land. No real prob. And we wouldn’t want to uncover it.
And, um, how is telling your people to look out for suspicious behavior and substances “touchy” to Arabs? I thought Arabs “aren’t terrorists.” I thought they were “loyal Americans who are against terrorism.” (I mean Kiefer Sutherland told us that about Muslims, so it must be true.) If these were truly the case, why would they be irked by firefighters noticing that Ahmed has an illegal accelerant peaking out of his garage next to the Holy Land Foundation poster.
Also, this dhimmiwit, Doyle, says that he doesn’t want to give his men and women this training because it “might not be enough”:

A structural diagram of the Ambassador Bridge, which links Detroit to Canada, materials and literature to make a bomb and a bomb prototype are things firefighters should pay attention to, Doyle said. But the bridge diagram by itself might not be enough.

What an Einstein! Don’t give them any training in this aspect of saving lives because it might not be maximum training (ie., training that will offend Muslims).
Oh, and by the way, here’s what they will not receive in Detroit, that New York and DC firefighters WILL receive:

Because firefighters are on the front lines, the fire service needs to know about intelligence that could somehow affect what they do, said Gregory Cade, who as head of the U.S. Fire Administration is the nation’s top fire chief.
If, for example, Washington is hosting an International Monetary Fund meeting where there will be a large group of protesters and a truckload of gasoline has been stolen in Baltimore, firefighters need to know about intelligence from overseas that terrorists are trying to make explosive devices out of gasoline, Schultz said.
“Getting appropriate, actionable intelligence is important for a fire chief in deciding what to do and how to allocate resources and to know what’s going on,” Cade said. “No one is expecting us to be the analyst person who is sitting down, trying to connect all of this stuff together and determining, ‘Oh, yes, this looks like a terrorist plot.’ ”
But Cade said that until recently, there’s been no mechanism for fire departments to share what they learn with law enforcement and intelligence analysts who could use it.

Yup, we can’t have this logical training and information in Detroitistan because it might offend Muslims.
I remember the photo of heroic firefighters raising the flag at Ground Zero on the day of the 9/11 attacks. And I think: Not in Detroit. It might offend Islam.

I was born in Detroit, and left at age 11. It was easy enough to laugh at that miserable town, and figure good riddance to the s**thole it has become.
Failed Ren Cen–ha ha
Big 3 automakers eating it–ha ha
Pimp Daddy mayor–ha ha
Muslims overrunning the area–ha ha
Idiot female lib governor–ha ha
Horrible lib senator–ha ha
Funny, funny, until I realized that this was just a foreshadowing of the rest of the country going down the drain.
Thanks for being the clarion call, Deb.

To expand somewhat on this topic, I saw on Fox News about a plan that was uncovered to send terrorists, dressed as illegal alins, across the border with the intent of infiltrating Ft. Huachuca in Arizona. It went on to state that the Muslim Extremists are sharing the same bed with the big drug cartels in Mexico, paying them big money to get their people across the border and, in return, also bring guns and ammo they’ve already smuggled in.
This isn’t new folks…this has been brewing for a long time and just because the “Mamed-stream” media claims they just found out, it’s all BS. I’ll gurantee this has been known for a long time but nobody wanted to open the lid on Pandora’s Box. When I was in the Border Patrol, there were several instances in which the Mexican military entered the US illegally, bivouaced inside our borders, and were armed. Border Patrol confronted them but were told to back off and let the “politicians” do the peacemaking. Try doin’ that in Mexico and see how far you get.
Those desert areas on the border are very remote in most parts and it would be a cake-walk to sneak in, especially when you have the Mexican army and the drug smugglers aiding all the “Jihad Joe’s” to enter and do their dirty work.
Don’t wait for Uncle Spam to give you terrorist training; the only thing those inept douchebags know how to do is butt snorkel and find the chic places to have a 3 martini lunch.
It’s time for the people to take the offensive!

Why is our military not allowed to confront foreign invaders? We have the most powerful military in the world and it has completely de-balled! The people who defended the Alamo have to be crying and spinning in their graves!! They weren’t afraid to pull the trigger.

We are becoming the French with our position that we’ve taken on Detroit. Nothing has changed since all of the blowhards stood up after 9/11 spewed their worthless garbage.

Detroit is a shithole, which is inevitable given the people who are in control. Where I live the Jews are the politically dominant minority group, and not coincidentally, it’s nice. If the remaining good people leave Detroit, it can implode without anyone decent being hurt, like the evil cities used to in biblical times.

Debbie, the federal government is suing the state of IL because the governor refuses to follow federal law regarding reporting of illegal aliens.
Is there a similar way that Detroit could be brought to a heel, or is the training simply voluntary?
Then again, if it was a DHS mandate, and since DHS is so toothless I doubt administrative law overseen by them would mean anything.

I’ll gladly train FD-types. Send ’em my way.

The reason why pretty much boils down to the beltway’s moronic presumption that “it would cause an international incident”. Hell bells, their filthy asses taking up space on our soil has already created an international incident; gee guys, I think we’re past that point. Same mentality held true while working the line during evenings. There were a few nights when I heard automatic wepaons fire coming from across the border(usually the local dopers against the Mexican Judicial Police or army; if the army or the judicials won, they get to sell the dope and fill their pockets). In addition, there were nights when I was about 300 feet from the line and had rounds skip across the hood of my vehicle. Yep, that was the local turds trying to push us out of the area so they could move their dope. Problem is, I and my other agents were taking fire and were told not to return fire for the same spineless reason: let’s not have an international incident. If I’m protecting my nation’s borders and I’m taking fire from across the border, the prudent action would be to return fire while pulling out. No can’t have that…just try to drive out as fast as you can while running the risk of taking a bullet because you weren’t allowed to return fire to pin them down so there weren’t any rounds coming at you while pulling out.
As far as I’m concerned, any breach of the borders and/or security of this nation constitutes swift, merciless action. Too bad the panty-waists up in Washington don’t care but lately, what can one expect?

Thank Coleman Young for getting the whole ugly unraveling and destruction going.
