DHS Appointee Allegedly Played Politics With Database

A member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) allegedly tapped into a state database in hopes of luring journalists to write a story damaging to Texas Governor Rick Perry, a Republican presidential candidate, Pajamas Media reports.
Mohamed Elibiary "has accessed DPS documents and downloaded them," said Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw. Those include documents with intelligence information marked for official use only. They were part of a Homeland Security database used by law enforcement agencies to share intelligence.
McCraw wants the Department of Homeland Security to determine if "Elibiary improperly handled any sensitive intelligence products," the report says.
Elibiary then shopped a story to an unnamed media outlet saying the department promoted "Islamophobia," writes blogger Patrick Poole. Perry, Elibiary allegedly claimed, was responsible. But the material contained "nothing remotely resembling Islamophobia," an unnamed representative of the media outlet said.
Elibiary's past actions have led to questions about his ideology. For example, he spoke at a December 2004 conference in Dallas paying tribute to the Ayatollah Khomeini and has defended Sayyid Qutb, the Islamist ideologue credited with inspiring the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist groups including al-Qaida.

The MB have had operatives in the WH since Clinton's administration. In fact, they have been the attack dogs of the CIA for years, going their dirty work for them. There are even pictures of MB members in the office of Dwight D. Eisenhower, as he was thinking about recruiting them. They were the original "Arab Nazis", and their motto was, "First Allah, then Hitler". They were recruited after WWII by the CIA, is how I understand it. The Holy Land Foundation Trial exposed their exsistance in this country, but Holder dropped the entire trial as attorney general. there 300 indicted co-conspirators, and CAIR was one of them. Al-Qaeda was also invented by the CIA. It is not at all unusual for the CIA to start something it can't handle. Anyone who thinks they can "handle" psychotic fanatics like the MB are plain stupid. Every one of them should be run out of their country. They have one objective: "To bring our miserable house down around us." and to inflict Sharia over all the world under a Caliphate. They are nutcases.
