How Can US Leaders NOT Know About Islam?

When Understanding the Threat (UTT) conducts its 3-day “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Network” two things are always true at the end of the course:  (1) the attendees tell us none of them – including FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force agents/officers – were aware of the information presented prior to attending the course, and (2) they all believe the information is critical to protecting their communities.

How is this possible?

In the last few weeks, UTT has written articles, given numerous media interviews, produced UTT’s Radio Show, and related information via social media detailing the failure of our government to identify the Islamic threat and deal with it in a factual/reality-based manner.

This produced numerous questions from UTT followers, media, and others asking “How is it possible U.S. leaders are so ignorant of Islam and sharia?”

The answer is simple: 100% of our enemy states they are muslims waging jihad to establish an Islamic State under sharia.  They call the means to do this “Civilization Jihad,” and the U.S. Islamic Movement – primarily led by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood – does this by controlling the narrative about Islam inside our system.  The MB controls the narrative by controlling the information our national security professionals receive as it relates to “terrorism” and related matters.

Inside the government, there is no training which provides employees of the State Department, FBI, CIA, DHS, DIA, National Security staffs, Pentagon, military commands, or other key components of the government factual information about sharia (Islamic Law) and its role in this war.  Nor is there substantive training related to the massive jihadi network in the United States, primarily led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

How did we get here?

In 2006, UTT’s John Guandolo (an FBI Special Agent at the time) created and implemented the first training inside the U.S. government which detailed:  sharia as the enemy threat doctrine, what it is, its authority in Islam, and what it says; the Muslim Brotherhood history, network, key organizations and leaders, modus operandi, and examples of penetrations and operations inside the United States; funding channels for the Global Islamic Movement; and investigative and strategic solutions to this threat.

The program was a resounding success and all the graduates believed it should be given to all government employees and law enforcement officers.

In the fall of 2006, John Guandolo notified coordinators of a 9/11 event they should reconsider including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) because they operate as a Hamas entity.  Leaders of CAIR called leadership at FBI Headquarters who called the Assistant Director of the FBI’s Washington Field Office (WFO) who, in turn, called the Special Agent in Charge of WFO and Mr. Guandolo was reprimanded.

And so it continues today across our government.

The primary Islamic advisors regarding the Islamic threat inside the White House, State Department, CIA, FBI, DHS, national security staffs, and others are Muslim Brotherhood (MB) operatives or muslims ideologically aligned with the MB.

The key universities where senior government officials (including military generals) receive their masters and doctorate degrees in Middle East Studies and related topics – like Georgetown and Harvard – are bought and paid for by Saudi Arabia (The Kingdom Group).  No truth about sharia is being taught there.

There is no discussion of Islamic sharia – with the exception of propaganda being taught by muslim professors – at the military war colleges, the Joint Forces Staff College, boot camps, basic officer trainings or anywhere else in the military.

The U.S. Marine Corps’ 9 month long Command & Staff College does not even mention the word “jihad.”

Muslim Brother Arif Alikhan served as the DHS Assistant Secretary for Policy and was a Professor of Homeland Security & Counterterrorism at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C.

In 2011, there was a directed purge of all training materials inside the Department of Justice, FBI, DHS, and the military after known Muslim Brotherhood groups the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), and Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) complained to the White House about “offensive” materials being included in government training discussing Islam.  FBI Director Mueller, DHS Secretary Napolitano and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Martin Dempsey (US Army) all ordered the “offensive” materials purged.

Inside the government, those who speak truth and follow facts/evidence leading to sharia (Islamic Law) as the basis for why the enemy is fighting are rejected.  In the case of DHS employee Philip Haney, his investigations uncovered thousands of organizations and individuals who were involved in planning and organizing jihadi activities inside the United States.  DHS officials removed over 800 records of jihadis and jihadi organizations which were put into DHS’s system by Haney.  Then DHS went after Haney with numerous internal investigations to shut his work down.

Read the article Mr. Haney wrote in the Hill about this here.  Mr. Haney’s book See Something, Say Nothing further details his experiences.

So how would our leaders come to understand the threat?  How would FBI agents, CIA case officers, or DHS employees?

From the time they enter government service, and during their daily work, the message is that this war has nothing to do with “real Islam.”

The factual basis for understanding the enemy threat doctrine – Sharia – is nowhere to be found in the U.S. government, and so the very people charged with protecting American citizens remain ignorant of the threat of Islam.

This is the intentional outcome of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s decades long campaign.

    According to one Merriam-Webster dictionary a “conspiracy theory” is a theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators; although a “theory” per se is simply an opinion based on little or no evidence.

    Thus, in view of said treasonous penchant by un-named “U.S. leaders” for engaging in the obstruction of justice on behalf of the Islamic Movement’s declaration* of war against the United States on 9/11, and to have then effectively threatened former DHS employee Philip Haney UNDER COLOR OF LAW as well for adhering to his oath to protect & defend the country from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, sworn depositions from said individual “leaders” may shed light on the following ostensibly first person verbatim internet narrative which, to my knowledge, remains un-reputed:

    START: “July 14 2017 Information Clearing House — 79 year old retired CIA agent, Malcom Howard has made a series of astonishing claims since being released from hospital in New Jersey on Friday and told he has weeks to live. Mister Howard claims he was involved in the controlled demolition of World Trade Center 7, the third building that was destroyed on 9/11. Mister Howard, who worked for the CIA for 36 years as an operative claims he was tapped by senior CIA agents to work on the project due to his engineering background, and early career in the demolition business. Trained as a civil engineer, Mister Howard became an explosives expert after being headhunted by the CIA in early 1980s.Mister Howard says he has extensive experience in planting explosives in items small as cigarette lighters and as large as 80 floor buildings. The 79 year old New Jersey native says he worked on the CIA operation they dubbed “New Century” between May 1997 and September 2001, during a time he says the CIA “was still taking orders from the top”.

    Mister Howard says he was part of a cell of four operatives tasked with ensuring the demolition was successful. Mister Howard says the World Trade Center operation was unique among his demolitions, as it is the only demolition “that we had to pretend wasn’t a demolition job”, He claims he had no problem going through with the deception at the time, because when you are a patriot, you don’t question the motivation of the CIA or the White House. You assume the bigger purpose is for a greater good. “They pick good loyal people like me, and it breaks my heart to hear the shit talk”. But even he admits that now, looking back, “something wasn’t right.” “No good has come from this, this isn’t the America we envisioned.”

    Explaining how the building was brought down, Mister Howard says, “it was a classic controlled demolition with explosives.” We used super-fine military grade nanothermite composite materials as explosives. The hard part was getting the thousands of pounds of explosives, fuses and ignition mechanisms into the building without causing too much concern. But almost every single office in the building 7 was rented by the CIA, the Secret Service, or the military, which made it easier.” Mister Howard explains that WT 7 was loaded with explosives in strategic places in the month leading up to the day that changed the course of American history.

    On September 11th, while the north and south towers burned, fuses were ignited in World Trade Center 7, and the nanothermite explosions hollowed out the building, destroying the steel structure, removing the reinforcements, and allowing the office fires to tear through the rest of the building, hollowing it out like a shell. World Trade Center 7 collapsed into its own footprint at 5:20 PM, seven hours after the destruction of WTC 1 and 2. The building shocked witnesses by coming down at the speed of freefall indicating that it encountered zero resistance on the way down.

    Mister Howard and his colleagues had done their job. “When the building came down it was such a rush. Everything went exactly to plan. It was so smooth. Everybody was evacuated. Nobody was hurt in WT 7. We were celebrating. We kept watching replays of the demolition, we had the whiskey and cigars out, and then all of a sudden the strangest thing happened. We all started to worry that it looked a bit too smooth. We watched the tape again and again and again and we started to get paranoid. It looked like a controlled demolition. We thought shit, people are going to question this. And then we heard that people from the street were reporting that they heard the explosions during the afternoon.

    When we were told that the BBC botched their report and announced to the world that the building collapsed 20 minutes before it actually did, at that point we really thought the gig was up.” According to the official 9/11 report issued by the government, WT 7 collapsed due to uncontrolled fires that were caused by debris that floated over from WTC 1 and 2, which had been hit by passenger airplanes. If the official narrative was true, WT 7 would be the first tall building in the world to ever collapse due to uncontrolled fires, and the only steel skyscraper in the world to have collapsed into itself due to “office fires.”

    Mister Howard and his colleagues feared the public would see through the official narrative and rise up against the government, demanding to be told the truth.” There are so many loose ends, so much evidence left behind, we thought the public would be all over it. We thought there would be a public uprising that the media couldn’t ignore. They’d be funding investigations and demanding to know why they were being lied to. We thought they’d find chemical composites in the area that would prove building 7 was blown up. We thought there would be a revolution. It would go all the way to the top, to President Bush, he’d be dragged out of the White House, but none of that happened. Almost nobody questioned anything. The media shot down anyone who dared question anything; they were told “follow the money”.

    Mister Howard claims he has no direct knowledge about the destruction of north and south towers of the World Trade Center, explaining that CIA operations “are very specific”. And that it is common to be working on a larger project while understanding a small piece of the puzzle.” END.

    With respect to UTTs rhetorical question, and (as usual) ensuing valuable reminders, They do “Know About Islam”, It would be impossible not to. Though since they and their significant others also live amid multiple concentric circles of high-tech security, their only concerns are for each other, and tenure.

  5. Obama was simply protecting his fellow Muslims from American law and oversight. In doing so, he weakened our ability to deal with Islamic terror, but that’s what he was after all the time; weakening America.

  6. I understand what you are saying in how the MB have successfully removed every trace of Islamic terrorism from internal government training and resources and how they control the narrative.
    What I don’t understand is how that excuses government officials for their ignorance and compliance.
    We are all free to exercise our common sense except when we wilfully choose not to.
    It appears that most of the western world knows of the dangers of Islamic Jihad and the endorsements of it in the Koran – except for those who work in government and are charged with our protection.
    This smacks of a concentrated effort (nay, conspiracy) by all those in government to deceive the people and to hasten our demise.
    The general public are not privy to classified information or security sensitive data but we can use our eyes, our ears and our heads. Ignorance is no excuse. Are our government departments filled with children who cannot think for themselves or analyse what is going on around them! Are there no adults left in government who can think for themselves and who will not accept the trajectory of the MB! May God grant us men who refuse to take No! for an answer. Where are yesterday’s men of God?

  7. Sidebar in the Washington Times above the fold this morning: “President sweeps out hard-liners on Islam” This is not going well for us.
