The goal active measures influence the opinions and actions persons, institutions, governments and the public at-large. They are activities distinct from intelligence and diplomatic operations. The essence active measures deception.4 Deception has been staple international politics and statecraft for centuries. applying the Soviet-era terminology Islamists, parallel can drawn between the Communist International (COMINTERN), and later, the International Department the Soviet Communist Party Central Committee that the Organization Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). important differentiate the OIC and ideological, intergovernmental organizations with political and sociological objectives.

Non-ruling Islamist Political Parties encouraging communication, liaison and mutual support, including specific political action propaganda campaigns. Political Influence Operations Islamist operatives take active role political, governmental, press, business, labor academic forums.

Sayyid Syeed, PhD Islamic Society North America (ISNA) 43rd Annual Conference Rosemont, Labor Day, 2006 March 2012, Judicial Watch submitted FOIA requests the FBI and the Department Justice (DoJ) seeking access records about controversial February 2012 meeting between FBI Director Robert Mueller and various Islamic organizations. Judicial Watch sought any and all records setting criteria guidelines for FBI curricula Islam records identifying potentially offensive material within the FBI curricula Islam, well any directives withdraw FBI presentations and curricula Islam. Judicial Watch also sought records communications between the Office the Attorney General and several entities, including the Obama White House, the Executive Office the President, and Muslim organizations, such the MB, the Islamic Society North America (ISNA), and the Council American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) regarding the FBI curricula Islam.

III. Documenting the Purge FOIA Lawsuit Record Production June 2013, result its lawsuit, Judicial Watch obtained and released hundreds pages FBI records revealing that, 2012, the agency purged its antiterrorism training curricula material determined group Subject Matter Experts offensive Muslims.9 The FBI refused disclose the identities these Subject Matter Experts. The excised material included references linking the Muslim Brotherhood terrorism, tying Qaeda the 1993 World Trade Center and Khobar Towers bombings, and suggesting that young male immigrants Middle Eastern appearance may fit the terrorist profile best. Among the records produced FBI policy document, Guiding Principles: Touchstone Document Training, which provided the rationale for the curriculum purge. The Touchstone document contains extraordinary statement: Mere association with organizations that demonstrate both legitimate (advocacy) and illicit (violent extremism) objectives should not automatically result determination that the associated individual acting furtherance the organization illicit objective(s). Perhaps not automatically, but should definitely result preliminary inquiry and some fundamental investigative work. Outside groups and purge pressure The FBI should not outsource its counterterrorism training the terrorists and/or their agents influence who have sworn destroy our country. The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) has lobbied successfully for years remove references Islam, sharia and jihad from the national security dialogue and terminology law enforcement, intelligence and defense agencies even though terrorists from Hamas use those terms and Quranic doctrine and quotes justify their operations and attacks. 2005, MPAC founder Salam al-Marayati made the following public statement Islamic Society North America (ISNA) conference Dallas: Counter-terrorism and counter-violence should defined us, said. should define how effective counter-terrorism policy should pursued this country. So, number one, reject any effort, notion, suggestion that Muslims should start spying one another That why are saying have them [law enforcement] come community forums, opendialogues, they come through the front door and you prevent them having come from the back door.10 During the notorious February 2012 meeting, FBI Director Mueller reportedly assured the Islamic groups attendance that the agency had ordered the removal presentations and curricula Islam from FBI offices around the country that were deemed offensive. One group that reportedly met with Mueller ISNA was already tied the terror groups Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood federal court documents. The government had named ISNA 2007 unindicted co-conspirator the Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing lawsuit, along with CAIR, and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).12 MPAC posted its website that its February 2012 meeting with Director Mueller concerned the use inflammatory training material that depicts falsehoods and negative connotations the Muslim American community. MPAC stated that the FBI proposed training changes were welcomed first step ensuring that such mistake does not occur again. also sought formal statement from Director Mueller acknowledging the negative impact these training materials the Muslim American Community. The Department Defense (DoD) instituted purge similar the FBI April 24, 2012, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey ordered the entire U.S. military review its educational and training classes, files, and rosters instructors ensure that members the armed services were studying material disrespectful the Islamic religion. MPAC issued statement May 18, 2012 that, While are spending treasures both lives and finances overseas trying win hearts and minds, here home are training our young servicemen and women fill their hearts and minds with hate. [Emphasis added] Curiously, the purge FBI training materials seems have been initiated the reporting one journalist (Spencer Ackerman Wired) concerning one briefing presented Quantico. Ackerman himself reports: apparently true that FBI intelligence analyst William Gawthrop who conducted the counterterrorism training Mueller apparently referred [in congressional testimony October 2011] only held particular three-day seminar the FBI training academy one occasion. [Emphasis added] Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) encouraged the systematic purge.17 Back the spring 2011, Senator Durbin had organized U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee special hearing Muslim civil rights America. The event purportedly came response the spike anti-Muslim bigotry. The Senate panel featured thenAssistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, who led the agency civil rights division, and Farhana Khera, who runs San Francisco group called Muslim Advocates. Attorney General Holder has been the guest honor and featured speaker the annual dinner the Muslim Advocates.18 Muslim Advocates described itself follows: are experts with deep experience the courtroom and powerful connections Congress and the White House. thoughtful voice Washington, ensure the concerns American Muslims are heard leaders the highest levels government. watchdog justice, use the courts bring task those who threaten the rights American Muslims.

Fight discrimination with high impact lawsuits against those who wrongfully target American Muslims are strategic the battles take on, our resources have maximum impact. create coalitions with our allies inside and outside government tackle the most urgent issues facing the American Muslim community. [Emphasis original]19 Another member the Illinois congressional delegation, Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), has been praised CAIR for her strong defense the Muslim Community during questioning FBI Director Robert Mueller the House Permanent Select Committee Intelligence. the same October 2011 press release, CAIR Director Nihad Awad thanked Director Mueller for his pledge perform top bottom review FBI counterterrorism training. Nonetheless, other members Congress, including then-Rep. Allen West (RFL), objected allowing radical Muslim organizations the opportunity dictate U.S. counterterrorism policy and want the material reinserted into the documents: Now you have environment political correctness which precludes these [FBI] agents from doing their proper job and due diligence after the perceived threat, stated West.21 Identification offensive training material reported March 2012 National Public Radio (NPR): The FBI has completed review offensive training material and has purged 876 pages and 392 presentations, according briefing provided lawmakers. Documents obtained year later the Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit revealed that among the reasons given the FBI for purging offensive training documents were: Article highly inflammatory and inaccurately argues the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization. Page inaccurately states that [al Qaeda] responsible for the bombing the Khobar Towers and that clearly linked the 1993 bombing the World Trade Center. The overall tenor the presentation too informal the current political context. The Qur not the teachings the Prophet, but the revealed word God. Remove references mosques specifically radicalization incubator.

Ironically, 2011, then-FBI Director Mueller, who later ordered the purge offensive material including the exoneration the Muslim Brotherhood had described the Brotherhood group that supports terrorism the U.S. and overseas.31 IV. The Islamist Influence Operation 9/11 and the Immediate Aftermath Judicial Watch has long history pursuing national security matters relating terrorism. began representing FBI Special Agent Robert Wright August 2001 concerning FBI efforts silence him about Islamist money laundering and financial support terrorist organizations.32 Nine days after the attacks 9/11, Judicial Watch filed Complaint Concerning Certain Tax Exempt And Other Organizations Reportedly Used Money Laundering Front Operations for Terrorist Activities The United States and Abroad with the Internal Revenue Service. Our report specifically cited the activities terrorist front organizations.33 November 24, 2008 the federal government finally obtained guilty verdict against one the organizations named: the Holy Land Foundation for Relief Development (and five individuals).34 March 28, 2005, Judicial Watch released documents from the FBI obtained result the FOIA litigation (Judicial Watch Department Homeland Security Federal Bureau Investigation, No. 04-1643 (RWR)) that contain declassified Secret FBI report, dated September 24, 2003, entitled: Response October 2003 Vanity Fair Article (Re: [Redacted] Family Departures After 9/11/2001). the hijackers 9/11, them were Saudi subjects. The report contained many redactions that the Justice Department claimed were made the privacy interests the Saudi subjects identified. not clear how the Justice Department concluded that the alleged privacy privileges non-U.S. persons trump the public interest obtaining full information about the government investigative response the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Additional redactions were claimed for law enforcement investigative purposes even though the report claims that information investigative value was learned from interviews bin Laden family members and Saudi royals. New information detailing flights Saudis out the U.S. from Las Vegas and Providence, were the report. FBI procedures processing the Saudi flights were also revealed. apparent from the report that bin Laden family members and Saudi royals were subject only cursory, pro forma questioning the FBI. Experienced investigators suggested detailed counterterrorism interviews would have taken minimum two hours per passenger. There was evidence offered that any such interviews were conducted the FBI. The report silent the identity the official who approved any the flights. This extraordinarily favorable treatment bin Laden family members and other influential, wealthy, Saudi subjects was facilitated through the personal connections and influence Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi Arabian ambassador the United States from 1983 2005.36 Foreign nationals with contacts, communication, travel, investments, family associations and other material witness information concerning the largest terrorist attack U.S. soil were given pass because elaborate, well-cultivated influence operation personified Saudi prince. Entirely consistent with his long ambassadorial service the United States and his knowledge and appreciation influence operations, Prince Bandar was appointed Director General the Saudi Intelligence Agency July 19, 2012.37 American Islamists also engage influence operations and active measures operations. Anwar Aulaqi, U.S. citizen and militant imam the Dar al-Hijrah mosque Falls Church, Virginia perfect example. described the spiritual leader and inspiration the 9/11 hijackers; the Fort Hood murderer, U.S. Army Major Nidal Hassan; and the 2009 Christmas Day (attempted) airline bomber, Umar Farouk Abudulmutallab Nigeria, and others.38 Judicial Watch began investigation Aulaqi and has gone court compel the government produce records concerning his terrorist connections. date, Judicial Watch litigation has resulted the release more than 1,800 pages responsive records, many which were previously classified. The documents pertain the FBI investigation Aulaqi connections two the 9/11 hijackers; his suspected involvement with terrorism early 1999; his banking activities; his frequent patronizing prostitutes; and, the State Department revocation his passport approximately six months before his death drone strike. Aulaqi was interviewed the FBI four times the eight days following the 9/11 attacks.39 Aulaqi telephone number had been found German police the Hamburg apartment hijacker Ramzi bin Shibh.40 Aulaqi had also been investigated the FBI 1999 and 2000 for his contacts with operatives associated with bin Laden, Omar Abdel-Rahman (the Blind Sheik and mastermind the World Trade Center bombings) and the terror group, Hamas.41 Six days following the 9/11 attacks, Aulaqi suggested Islamist website that website that Israeli intelligence agents might have been responsible for the attacks.42 Documents suggest the FBI was aware far back September 27, 2001, that Aulaqi may have purchased airplane tickets for three the 9/11 terrorist hijackers, including mastermind Mohammed Atta.43 The FBI was sufficiently concerned Aulaqi activities and contacts that was placed under surveillance November 2001. Aulaqi presented himself publicly the face moderate Islam America. gave number media interviews and appeared National Geographic; National Public Radio; and, the New York Times. Aulaqi also frequented prostitutes Washington, hotels, spending thousands dollars. FBI memo seeking prosecution Aulaqi for prostitution-related charges provides detailed account his conduct, the evening before his speech Pentagon audience.44 February 2002 Aulaqi had lunch the dining room the Secretary Defense and made presentation Pentagon brass, part the military outreach the Muslim community.45 preparation for Aulaqi Pentagon luncheon, Defense Department lawyer who purportedly vetted his background and credentials wrote that she had the privilege hearing one Mr. Awlaki presentations November and was impressed both the extent his knowledge and how communicated that information and handled hostile element the audience. According records and surveillance logs obtained through FOIA lawsuit against the FBI Judicial Watch, the bureau issued bulletin 10:40AM the day before the Pentagon luncheon (February 2002) that declared Aulaqi terrorist. The Aulaqi warning notice reads: Warning approach with caution not alert the individual the FBI interest and contact your local FBI field office the earliest opportunity. [Emphasis added.] Nonetheless, according the FBI surveillance log for February 2002 11:30 am, Aulaqi boarded the Metro train, blue line north for the Pentagon. 11:32 am, Aulaqi exited the Metro train, walked through the turnstyle [sic] and greeted two unidentified white females. 11:40 am, Aulaqi and the two unidentified females walked through the train station, onto the escalator, walked southwest and west adjacent the Pentagon, the steps and walked northeast towards the entrance the Pentagon. And 12:00 pm, Surveillance discontinued the Pentagon. short, the FBI followed this terrorist literally the front steps the Pentagon. Within days the Pentagon luncheon, Aulaqi left the United States. Eight months later, returned the United States under mysterious circumstances. Aulaqi was stopped and detained Customs officers JFK International Airport because outstanding warrant for his arrest, until FBI Special Agent Wade Ammerman ordered Aulaqis release, even though the warrant was still active.48 Records obtained Judicial Watch September 2013 suggest that Aulaqi may have been agent the U.S. government, that perhaps Aulaqi was manipulating the U.S. government achieve his own goals. The records show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller appears more deeply involved the post9/11 handling Aulaqi than previously known.49 One memo from Mueller then-Attorney General John Ashcroft October 2002 seven days before Aulaqi re-entered the United States and was detained JFK airport marked Secret and titled Anwar Aulaqi: IT-UBL/AL-QAEDA.50 The substance the memo redacted full. Interestingly, the memo one least three FBI reports, whose primary subject Aulaqi, the nine days leading his return the United States October 2002. Another FBI memo marked Secret, October 22, 2002, days after the clerics return, includes the subject line Anwar Nasser Aulaqi and Synopsis: Asset reporting.51 Other records Judicial Watch uncovered show that October 2002 before Aulaqi returned the United States memo marked Secret and Priority was faxed from the FBIs Washington Field Office FBI headquarters. October the FBI directors memo was sent Ashcroft. And October 10, the day Aulaqi entered the United States, there was heavily redacted fax from the FBI resident office JFK International Airport that included the clerics plane ticket, customs form, passport and Social Security card. Aulaqi left the United States before the end 2002, and spent the following years the United Kingdom (2002 2004) and Yemen (2004 2011). Aulaqi was killed Yemen Hellfire missile fired from Predator drone September 30, 2011.52 Aulaqi seems the perfect example active measures operative. means deception, conducted himself publicly supposedly moderate Muslim cleric, while engaged clandestine operations supporting the 9/11 hijackers. While lecturing Pentagon officials their need sensitive the Muslim community (an influence operation), secretly plotted traitorous, Jihadist attacks against his fellow citizens. appears have manipulated and/or deceived, least for time, the FBI and perhaps the CIA. Having fled the country, went drop the cover deception, and then openly advocated for Jihadist attacks against his country birth. radicalized, inspired and directed terror attacks the head Qaeda the Arabian Peninsula until his death. His death leaves many unanswered questions: How much his terror support network intact the United States? What was Aulaqi relationship with the U.S. government? Was there recruitment attempt the FBI the CIA? Was Aulaqi double or, perhaps, triple agent? What value importance did Aulaqi have that the FBI was willing waive arrest warrants get him back into the country? Was Aulaqi successful recruiting and placing Islamist operatives the U.S. government? Aulaqi ran aggressive cyber-Jihad from Yemen, using YouTube for proselytizing and recruiting Islamists wage Jihad around the world. Those techniques are increasingly important for influence operations and broader active measures campaigns. Why did the U.S. government allow Aulaqi years unfettered access the Internet and YouTube?53 The public was told that Aulaqi was terrorist, when appears that was, least, U.S. government informant. Did President Obama know about Aulaqi status when ordered his death drone strike? Active Measures Campaign referenced above, 2007 and 2008, the United States charged the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Richardson, (and related persons) with material support terrorism through laundering millions dollars for use arakat alMuq wamah al- Isl miyyah, (Islamic Resistance Movement HAMAS). November 2008, the HLF and five men were found guilty unanimous verdicts counts unlawfully funding terrorism. HLF records introduced key evidence the trials included Explanatory Memorandum dated May 22, 1991 detailing the relationships and activities the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Movement North America. Attachment number (1) the Memorandum listed friendly organizations including: the Islamic Society North America; Muslim Students Association; United Association for Studies and Research; Mercy International Association; International Institute for Islamic Thought; and others.54 The Explanatory Memorandum described detail Civilization-Jihadist Process that stated, Their [Islamists] work America kind grand Jihad eliminating and destroying the Western Civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house their hands and the hands the believers that eliminated and God religion made victorious over all other religions. The Explanatory Memorandum documents how Islamists are waging jihad the West variety means and number fronts. There nothing new about the jihad phenomenon has been carried out one degree another since 632, although its current politicized manifestation traces its roots the first half the 20th century. The Koran demands jihad. ignore that fact our peril. Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo, expert jihadist ideology and Visiting Professor the Defence Academy the UK, has stated, Islamism has replaced communism the most significant ideological opponent the Western liberal world order. Radical Islamist movements have declared war the West well other Muslims. Even Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has identified, real displaced aggression this very fundamentalist jihadist Islamic community, and that that the West responsible for everything that goes wrong and that the only thing thats going solve this Islamic sharia law and the concept the caliphate. Current jihadist operations are conducted under the umbrella, direction and coordination the Organization Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the MB, well Qaeda (AQ) and its affiliates. The motto provides perspective their ideology and operations: Allah our objective; the Koran our law, the Prophet our leader; Jihad our way; and dying the way Allah the highest our aspirations.58 The arsenal jihad includes the weapons terrorism and acts war, well influence campaigns, propaganda and active measures. Since 2009, least seven (7) Islamists (the Tsarnaevs, Muhammad, Zazi, Hassan, Abdulmutallab, Shahzad) have attempted conduct attacks the United States undetected either the law enforcement intelligence communities. Likewise, Muslim political pressure and community groups have failed identify, warn authorities interdict these terrorists. 2011, the Obama administration was carrying out the training curricula purge demands groups like CAIR, the Russian government was, without success, warning the FBI about Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Controlling language essential for effective influence operations, part broader active measures campaign. example the radical purging certain terms and phrases from government lexicons can found comparing language used the 9/11 Commission Report59 that used both the 2009 National Intelligence Estimate60 and the 2008 FBI Counterterrorism Analytical Lexicon61. Certain terms and phrases rooted basic Islamic history, well the language/publications the terrorists themselves have been removed from U.S. government law enforcement and intelligence records. Why? Whose interests are served not using accurate language describe the actions persons attacking U.S. persons and property? Who wishes the historical record revised such way deny facts? Why would America leadership seek ignore almost 1,400 years history? sensitivity Islam concern, why would seek deny the teachings Islam and its historical conquests from medieval Spain Indonesia, and beyond? Isn such denial insensitive decision was made that the law enforcement and intelligence agencies the United States would better served not using historically accurate descriptive terms, then which government official made that decision? Who? How was that order scrub vocabulary conveyed the agency(ies)? What review and editing process was used and who were the editors/reviewers? appears that the U.S. government has elected deny reality. The compulsion for the U.S. government, its political leaders and the public at-large deny reality not new. Having documented U.S. national amnesia towards the brutality the Soviet Union her book, American Betrayal, author and syndicated columnist Diana West reminds that: throughout the 1970s and beyond, Red terrorists from Europe and the Islamic world struck civilian targets from Italy Sweden Japan Israel. Not that ever thought that world Islamic; was always described Arab. Often directed Cubans, Arabs, and Czechs, these forces were clandestinely bankrolled, trained, and supported Moscow destabilize the West Once again, the response Western leaders this Soviet assault Western society was official flight from reality, [The Terror Network author Claire] Sterling put it. She describes what was then the familiar mode Western behavior: mass avoidance all the densely accumulating evidence that led the conclusion that the Soviet Union was the culprit behind the chaos and terror. This led group hug around delusion. The denial and avoidance has manifested itself official government policy. Dr. Sebastian Gorka, professor irregular warfare the National Defense University, explains that the confusion our policies stems from two obstacles: The first misguided belief that the religious character the enemy ideology should not discussed, and that need not address it, but instead should use the phrase, Violent Extremism describe our foe and thus avoid any unnecessary unpleasantness. The second that even could demonstrate clear-headedness the issue and recognize the religious ideology Qaeda and its associated movements for what is, form hybrid totalitarianism, still drastically lack the institutional ability analyze and comprehend the world view this enemy and therefore its strategic mindset and ultimate objectives. government officials are forbidden use terms such jihad and Islamist, how can they ever hope conduct the fact-driven analysis required comprehend and act upon threat information? President George Bush declaration September 17, 2001 the Islamic Center Washington, that, Islam peace, good example how have disconnected facts the 9/11 attacks from conclusions Islam peace. The Obama administration has also taken strong action combat anything deemed insensitive Muslims. Whatever the broader motives the Obama political operatives, this desire eliminate insensitivity is, large part, rooted fear fear terror attacks, violence, provocations, days rage, burned consulates and protests. American leaders engage self-censorship out fear pretending tolerance and respect. They ironically proclaim that intolerance intolerable and must eliminated. Consistent with this fear-based approach, December 2011, Secretary State Hillary Clinton hosted three-day, closed-door, international Istanbul Process conference measures combat religious intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization. The conference was intended implement Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18, victory for the OIC advancement its goal that defamation religion should punished criminally worldwide. 10-year goal the OIC was accomplished. The Resolution, titled: Combating Intolerance, Negative Stereotyping and Stigmatization of, and Discrimination, Incitement Violence and Violence Against, Persons Based Religion Belief, implements two steps for member states: prohibiting discrimination based religion belief; and, training government officials, including how implement effective outreach religious communities. Participants included experts from invited countries and international organizations, well personnel from the U.S. Departments Homeland Security and Justice.65 hosting this conference Secretary Clinton directly and indirectly advanced the agenda the OIC and validated oppression.66 Rather than strongly defending the First Amendment, Secretary Clinton gave the impression the member states the OIC and the rest the that the United States would fall behind most Western Europe, Canada and Australia, with some sort Sharia-compliant speech code. the Secretary State would internationally compromise the Constitution through compliance with criminal blasphemy code, surely some use offensive language could, and would, curtailed the FBI. Violent extremist became the euphemism for jihadist, militant Islamist terrorist. May 10, 2012, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) went the floor the House Representatives and discussed disappearing language about the jihadist threat using chart display the frequency use descriptive terms government law enforcement and intelligence documents: Disappearing Language Violent extremism Enemy Jihad Muslim Islam Takfir Muslim Brotherhood Religious Hamas Hizbollah Qaeda Caliph Sharia FBI CounterTerror Lexicon 2008 National Intelligence Strategy 2009 9/11 Commission Report 2004 126 145 322 How does one identify, study and plan for defense militant Islamist terror threat one not permitted examine the doctrine, organization, history, ideology and conduct the opposition? Islam religion that also expresses itself ideology and system governance that requires compliance and submission. Just like the structure and organization the Soviet Union and its Communist Party apparatus, Islam offers entire intellectual and ideological structure and process. Examination Islamist ideology critical thwarting the threat posed our country. Studying ideology the means which understand man relationship mankind, the nation and community. From March 2011 through June 2012, Rep. Peter King (R-NY), chairman the House Committee Homeland Security, held series hearings radicalization within the Muslim-American community. The hearings focused on: the radicalization the Muslim-American community and that community response; radicalization prisons; recruitment within the Muslim-American community Al-Shabaab; and, the threat American military communities the United States well the Insider Threat from radicalized Muslims the military.67 The hearings were controversial and drew condemnations from CAIR and the ACLU.68 The hearings did not uncover reveal any new information, but the overreaction them the American Islamist network was revealing. This may because the most important finding came result the first hearing: There Need Confront the Islamist Ideology Driving Radicalization. Twelve years after 9/11, many Americans are woefully ignorant the militant Islamist terror threat. Just many Cold War-era Americans were not conversant the dialectical materialism Karl Marx, nor could they recite from memory the names the members the Central Committee the Communist Party the Soviet Union likewise, they are not familiar with the ideology the Muslim Brotherhood the writings Sayyid Qutb (the leading member the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood the 1950s and 60s). Many Americans believe the rest the world should respect and admire the individual liberties guaranteed our Constitution. They wrongly assume that, only given fair hearing and consideration, Western-style Jeffersonian democracy would embraced throughout the Islamic world. Obviously, those Americans are gravely mistaken. The mistake not new. example from the Cold War demonstrates the parallels between the struggle against Communism and today struggle against the Islamists. Global Psychological Conflict, analytical volume compiled and published the Industrial College the Armed Forces 1961, the following offered concerning The Importance History There flows from American humanism and humanitarianism, belief, almost article faith, that human beings all over the world are very much alike, that their basic aspirations, interests, fears and hopes are not really too different. instinctively deemphasize our thinking the extraordinary differences that exist the system values and mentality even such closely related nations the French and Italian. Thus come, not theory perhaps but actual fact, the conclusion that cannot really very important whether dealing with the Frenchmen the Italians, know their history and literature, their peculiar social stratification, their special philosophy life short, their true national individuality. Americans are also more modern than almost any other national group, the sense that live the present and look into the future. This also leads natural nonconcern with the underlying historical developments that have shaped those foreign nations that constitute our audience today. not only the average American who lacks clear understanding the Islamist threat. Journalist and author Diana West describes the national information gap the challenges facing the United States, and the purges the available information: Years battle even worse, years battle planning have passed without our leadership having studied, even having become acquainted with, the principles and historic facts Islamic war doctrine. Four years into the so-called war terror, then Joint Chiefs Chairman Peter Pace even pointed this out speech the National Defense University December 2005. Notwithstanding Pace concern, the study and analysis Islam and jihad remained facto forbidden policymaking circles inside the Bush White House, which even codified lexicon 2008 help government officials discuss Islamic jihad without mentioning Islam jihad. The Obama administration would carry this same see-no-Islam policy its zealous limit, finally mounting two-front assault the few trainers and fact-based training materials that were sometimes (sparingly) used law enforcement agencies and the military educate personnel about Islam and jihad. What history should remember the Great Jihad Purges 2012 began the Justice Department, affecting domestic law enforcement agencies, and spread the Pentagon, affecting the entire U.S. military.71 This see-no-Islam policy was recently display Seattle, when the Puget Sound Joint Terrorism Task Force, conjunction with the U.S. Department State Rewards for Justice program, bought advertisements for public buses part public education and awareness campaign June 2013. The advertisement featured photos wanted terrorists and the wording: Faces Global Terrorism and Stop Terrorist. Save Lives. $25 Million Reward. The terrorists featured are from around the world. Three were born the United States, seven are from African countries, four are from the Philippines, with one Malaysian and one Chechen. These facts detailing wanted terrorists did not deter Representative Jim McDermott (D-WA) from writing letter complaint the Director the FBI concerning the advertisements, and further stating: When you start saying that this the face terrorism, you are really stigmatizing whole group people. have now come expect, the FBI apologized for and discontinued the advertisements immediately. Islamists engaged influence operations leverage the powers our own Constitution Bill Rights back against active measures form ju-jitsu. The First Amendment becomes weapon curtail offensive speech; freedom religion becomes either freedom from religion, demand for state-sanctioning Islamic religious practices, while excluding and suppressing Christian expression. While Lenin believed would sell him the rope which would hang us, the Islamists dream shackling ourselves dhimmitude (accepting condition subservient, second-class status) that will help achieve the goals the Islamists Civilization Jihadist Process. Active measures campaigns seek bring social and political pressure bear against the targeted institution(s) and government(s) arrive desired result. Pressure exerted through subtlety and deception. Active measures are designed influence behaviors, decisions and outcomes. Bearing this mind, interesting note that Spencer Ackerman launched his reporting the FBI antiterror training curriculum Wired (September 2011), nearly simultaneously, Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman, Eileen Sullivan, and Chris Hawley from the Associated Press began their Pulitzer Prize-winning probe into NYPD intelligence operations (August 23, 2011).73 not unreasonable ask these reporters were manipulated through orchestrated program bring substantial negative publicity against the two leading counterterrorism law enforcement agencies the country virtually the same moment. Certainly, exactly that sort discrediting and crippling action exactly the desired outcome active measures program seeking thwart the operations major law enforcement agencies. Similar operations other enemies the United States have been carried out for decades through journalists, both wittingly and unwittingly. Islamists will offer that jihad war creative force.74 The Communists believed and said the same thing concerning war. Marx said that war was creative source social development, the last word social science the eve each general reconstruction society Lenin voiced the opinion that great historical questions can solved only violence. The Soviet Union lasted decades. From the Battle Tours (AD 732) the attacks 9/11, the historical record dense with factual information the Islamists jihadist efforts against the West.

Islamists and the Obama Administration Wednesday, October 19, 2011, activists and advocates from Islamist pressure groups met with officials from the Obama Justice Department, including the thenchief the Civil Rights Division the Justice Department, Thomas Perez, George Washington University Washington, DC. Islamist advocates demanded that the Justice Department reduce anti-terror priorities and funding; change agents training materials; restrict investigators from looking into certain Muslim-related subjects; and create new legal declaration that any U.S. citizens criticism Islam constitutes the crime racial discrimination.93 Mr. Perez warmly received the Islamists demands and promised action.94 Where the FDR administration had Harry Hopkins, Lauchlin Currie, Harry Dexter White and Alger Hiss among others engage espionage, subversion and influence operations agents, fellow travelers, dupes and useful idiots for the Soviet Union, too, does the Obama administration have this generation agents influence who would advance the interests the Islamists. The Obama administration has been penetrated Islamist influence operators, seeking advance ideological agenda completely odds with our constitutional system. The penetration is, many cases, the Obama administration invitation. Some the more public and controversial figures associated with the Obama administration have included: Rashad Hussain Hafiz (literally meaning guardian, person who has memorized the entire Koran), and U.S. Special Envoy the OIC. has history participating events connected with the MB. Huma Abedin Long-time personal aide former Secretary State Hillary Rodham Clinton. She worked assistant editor for the Journal Muslim Minority Affairs, the publication her parents Institute Muslim Minority Affairs, purportedly studying Muslims non-Muslim nations. Her late-father, mother and brother are all connected organizations operatives.95 She obtained special government employee status consult with private firms such Teneo Holdings and the Clinton Foundation while serving the State Department. Judicial Watch has filed lawsuit obtain records concerning her special employment waiver status. Daliah Mogahed advisor the White House Office Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Mogahed founder and executive director Gallup Center for Muslim Studies. Described as: The most important person shaping the Obama Administration Middle East message. Her 2009 book Who Speaks for Islam? viewed many apologia for the growing power and influence radical Islamists. Mogahed unapologetic defender unindicted terrorist conspirator organizations such CAIR and ISNA. Momamed Elibiary Texas-based security consultant and Islamic cleric who was named President Obamas Homeland Security Advisory Council 2010. has close ties convicted Hamas fundraiser and other radical Islamist causes, including nonprofit that proclaims sharia the only legitimate law according Islam (Assembly Muslim Jurists America). Elibiary has regular access classified information and prime mover behind two the Obama administration most dangerous policies: normalizing relations with domestic and foreign Islamist groups (including the MB) and arduous enforcement restrictions laws related material support for terrorism. Elibiary reportedly leaked highly sensitive intelligence documents media outlet part the Islamophobia influence campaign. Judicial Watch obtained records from the Texas Department Public Safety documenting Elibiary efforts access classified information. Mohamed Magid Executive Director the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), outside Washington, and President the ISNA, unindicted terrorist conspirator organization. Magid was appointed President Obama the Department Homeland Security Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. From that position, Magid was key influencing and directing the purge training materials and policies the FBI and other federal agencies. Magid regular visitor the White House, and extremely influential Islamic issues the Obama administration. Conclusions The country less safe when allow Islamists tell the FBI how train its agents and its job. The Obama administration needs stop putting the tender sensibilities radical Islamists above the safety the American people. The FBI purge called offensive material political correctness run amok and puts the nation risk. The FBI rewriting history order help AQ, the and their affiliates. This shows that the law enforcement agency need serious top-tobottom reform. fair say that not single U.S. government employee goes work each morning with the mission identifying and defeating the Islamists active measures campaigns. The United States does not have security service focused, Britain MI-5, defending the realm. The CIA organized primarily for foreign intelligence collection, and the FBI remains chiefly organization dedicated criminal investigations (even treating terrorism crime instead form combat). federal agency spends much time, any, countering deception campaigns. The agencies are reticent vigorously pursue internal security reviews and routine counterintelligence programs. Large bureaucratic institutions are reluctant disturb operations with examinations for deception and manipulation. Those same organizations are loathe raise those subjects congressional appropriations requests and hearings fearing any political criticism. Until there someone with the job defeating the Islamist active measures campaign targeting our nation and resourced roll back the Islamists and win the United States and her citizens are grave peril.
