So says a - note the tense - former Commissariat of Homeland Insecurity employee.
Maybe The One should be put on that no-fly list of his and have all his golf clubs confiscated. This would make him an accessory to terrorism, after all:
Phillip Haney, a former Homeland Security employee who was part of an operation in California to investigate possible terrorists, told Fox News that if the Obama White House had not shut down his program in 2012, he could have prevented last week's San Bernardino attack that killed fourteen people.
Haney, appearing Thursday on Fox News Channel's The Kelly File, said his program identified the mosque attended by Syed Farook, who with his wife, Tashfeen Malik, carried out the mass shooting, as being the home of a group of individuals already being investigated.
"As we were tracking them, we would have put the red light on them," Haney said.
"Therefore, two things very plausibly would have happened: Either Syed would have been put on the no-fly list because of the association with that mosque and/or the K-1 visa his wife was given would have been denied because of his affiliation with a known organization."
And the reason why this DHS counter-terrorism program was shut down by the Obama Regime? Other than "al Qaeda is dead and GM is alive!" and DID YOU KNOW THAT OBAMA BAGGED OSAMA BIN LADEN!?!"? Because it constituted "anti-Muslim" profiling. And profiling is wrong, and anti-Muslim profiling is "Islamophobic". No matter how many lives it may save.
The Regime's retort? Mr. Haney has "holes in his story" but....declined to elaborate. Beats me why they're being so reticent about it; I mean, why would they lie at this point? Or, better put, why would they STOP lying now?
All part of King Hussein's "faith-based" counterterrorism policy, I guess.
