Revealed: The Obama FBI’s Illicit Partnership with CAIR
Posted By Matthew Vadum On September 20, 2013 @ 12:39 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 2 Comments
A government watchdog’s new report takes the FBI to task for violating its own policies by continuing to work with the Muslim Brotherhoods front group in the United States, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
The report came as CAIR issued a new report denouncing the so-called “Islamophobia” of the Fox News Channel, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, David the Horowitz Freedom Center, and others who dare to engage in an honest discussion of Islam and the politics surrounding it. Islamophobia is a concept invented to intimidate critics of Islam and Islamic jihad by implying that any and all criticism of the Muslim religion is animated by bigotry or ethnic animus. CAIR has urged Muslims not to cooperate with the FBI, which it characterizes as corrupt.
The report from the Justice Department’s inspector general faults FBI headquarters for repeatedly providing its field offices with conflicting information and pinpoints five examples in which FBI field office special agents-in-charge ignored or deliberately defied FBI policy.
Five years ago the FBI was directed to end its working partnership with CAIR that was part of the agency’s gooey, politically correct public relations effort in Muslim communities in the United States. The ban on contact with CAIR applies only to outreach efforts. The FBI continues its normal investigatory work, looking into criminal and civil rights complaints involving Muslims and working with any organizations to which they may belong.
FBI field office resistance to the policy goes back to late 2008.
“[W]e will decide how our relationship is operated and maintained with CAIR barring some additional instruction from FBI Headquarters,” wrote the head of the FBI’s field office in Los Angeles. “Please instruct your folks at this time that [we] are not to abide by the [policy] but that their direction in regards to CAIR will come from the LA Field Office front office.”
Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va.). blasted the FBI for its behavior.
These violations of the contact ban with CAIR are “intolerable,” Wolf wrote in a letter to new FBI Director James Comey. He demanded that those responsible be punished and be “separat[ed] from the FBI,” the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports.
When Wolf howls, the FBI listens. He chairs the House Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee in charge of the FBI’s budget. The investigation looked only at incidents in the FBI’s field offices in Chicago, Philadelphia and New Haven, Conn., in 2010, 2011, and 2012, so there may be many more that have yet to be uncovered.
Referring to the Los Angeles incident, Wolf criticized the “unacceptable and insubordinate behavior from a senior leader of the FBI.”
“Despite repeated efforts to communicate the policy to the field,” he wrote, “this was undermined by conflicting guidance being inexplicably offered by the bureau’s Office of Public Affairs as well as outright violations from several field offices.”
The damning report was posted on the website of the Office of the Inspector General for the Department of Justice yesterday and then abruptly taken down. Sources say the OIG’s office said there was a technical problem. A few hours later, the report itself and an executive summary resurfaced on the DoJ Inspector General’s website.
While the FBI downplayed the findings of the report in its official reply to the OIG, the agency acknowledged its offices made mistakes and promised to do better.
“We note that the five incidents you reviewed are but a small fraction of the FBI’s outreach efforts with the Muslim community over the past five years,” Nancy McNamara, assistant director of the FBI’s inspection division, wrote in a Sept. 17 letter to DoJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz that was obtained by FrontPage Magazine.
“Outreach to the Muslim community remains critical to the FBI’s mission,” McNamara writes. “Accordingly, we will ensure our guidance on CAIR liaison is quickly updated and clarified. In that regard, the FBI agrees with your recommendations and has already taken steps to implement remedial actions.”
CAIR has been a shady operation from its creation nearly 20 years ago.
CAIR, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, is the Islamofascist organization in the United States most favored by leftists, Islamist fellow-travelers, dupes, and useful idiots. It has enjoyed remarkable success in infiltrating the American political establishment.
CAIR applauded CIA director John Brennan and President Obama for following its recommendations by avoiding the perfectly useful word Islamist. Islamist is a stealth slur, according to CAIR. It exists as a piece of coded language.
CAIR poses as a civil rights organization in order to immunize itself from criticism. “We are similar to a muslim NAACP,” says CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper.
On more than one occasion CAIR has been compared to the German American Bund, a U.S.-based organization created to promote a favorable view of Nazi Germany. The Bund, like CAIR, was created with the assistance of unfriendly foreign powers.
CAIR was founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad, both of whom worked for a pro-Palestine group established by senior Hamas operative Mousa Abu Marzook, and functioned as Hamas public relations and recruitment arm in the United States.
“[U]ntil we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS,” wrote an FBI official in 2009, “the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.”
This latest development in the CAIR saga comes after a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who is also a member of the Clinton family’s political network was arrested in Egypt in an ongoing roundup of seditious Islamist militants. Charged with inciting violence, Gehad el-Haddad worked for the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation from mid-2007 to mid-2012.
Gehad, incidentally, is the Egyptian version of the Arabic word Jihad.

This terrorist arrest explains why the Clintons just remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."
The Clintons' 24/7 self-promotion--a familiar do-good liberal schtick: bleating about wanting to "help" the needy, and hoping to make a buck on it.
The "Holy Family."
10 SECOND QUIZ: How many ways can the conniving Clintons use their name to launder money?
<><> The William J. Clinton Family Foundation......
<><> the Clinton Global Health Initiative......
<><> the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).
All of the conniving Clintons' shady proclivities are unveiled in the recent unexpurgated NYT report. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism...etc. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi millionaires.......the connivers have perfected the scam WRT gaming the system for themselves.
There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three Clinton Foundations' funding. We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's real lifestyle especially now that Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.
As President, Bill Clinton made policies that raised hundreds of billions (if not trillions) of dollars for his obscenely-rich donor/pals.
His North American Free Trade initiative made it easy for, and even encouraged, corporations to outsource jobs and then import their products back into the U.S...... The repeal of Glass-Steagall on his watch sent Wall Street into the money-making frenzy that led to the Great Recession/Depression of 2008......and subsequent taxpayer bailouts.
In exchange for these obscene gifts of corporate welfare, at the expense of America's middle and working classes, you'd think the Clintons' rich friends would have no trouble coughing up a mere $250 million endowment for the foundation.
Now it seems, the captains of crony capitalism are begging off....they just don't feel they have enough money to help their old friends Bill and Hillary secure their so-called "legacy."
Sen Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is probing longtime Hillary Rodham Clinton aides employment status, asking how Huma Abedin got a sweetheart deal as a private six-figure consultant while at the State Department.
Abedin is married to disgraced ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner, now in the NYC mayoral race. The two hauled in as much as $350,000 in outside income on top of Abedins $135,000 government salary after Weiner quit Congress over a sexting scandal.
Abedin was assigned special government employee status, and was able to haul in cash as a private contractor. One of her clients was Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm founded by Bill Clinton aide Doug Band.
Teneos Web site calls itself the next chapter in strategic advisory,
NOTE: Last Dec, a former MF Global employee accused former president Clinton----chairman of Teneo's advisory board----of collecting $50,000 per month through his Teneo advisory firm in the months before MFG careened towards its Halloween filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, as hundreds of millions of investor funds disappeared, reports Human Events.
Teneo was hired by MF Globals former CEO Jon S. Corzine to improve his image and to enhance his connections with Clintons political family, said the employee, who asked that his name be withheld because he feared retribution, according to HE. The Teneo contract with MF Global lasted at least five months, the souce said. The board cancelled it after Corzine resigned.
The source, who is no longer associated with MF Global, said Teneo is a dual-track company with one side devoted to merchant and investment banking and the other side set up to provide image and strategy consulting services.
The trustee for investors later sued JPMorgan bank for return of about $450M that MFG had transferred to the bank.
L/E needs to mobilize the Bank Secrecy Act---in which banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering and other financial crimes.
The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, terrorism, tax evasion or other unlawful activities.
El-Haddad served as the Clinton Foundations city director from August 2007 to August 2012, according to his LinkedIn profile. Just a month after El-Haddad left the Clinton Foundation to work full-time for the Brotherhood, former President Morsi was invited to deliver his first major speech at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), the high profile political familys other nonprofit.
El-Haddads employment at the Clinton Foundation overlapped with his official work for the Muslim Brotherhood, which began in Cairo in February 2011 when he assumed control of the Renaissance Project, a Brotherhood-backed economic recovery program.
El-Haddad officially became a senior adviser for foreign affairs in Morsis Freedom and Justice Party in May 2011, when he was still claiming to be employed by the Clinton Foundation.El-Haddad was quoted in the Guardian newspaper in March 2012 as one of the Brotherhoods senior advisers. USA Today referred to him as a senior adviser to the Muslim Brotherhood in May 2012.
El-Haddad was charged with developing a long-term economic recovery program, known as the Renaissance Project, during his time as senior adviser. Egyptian media reported in July 2012 that the program was actually meant to bring the country more in line with the Muslim Brotherhoods extremist religious ideals. Renaissance is far more than the electoral program of President Mohamed Morsi or the Brotherhoods political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party, the Egypt Independent reported at the time. It is a 25-year project to reform state, business and civil society, rooted in the Brotherhoods Islamic values but conditioned by the experiences of the projects founders in the modern economy.
Haddad told the Independent that he applied the knowledge he learned at the Clinton Foundation to his work at the Renaissance Project. The Clinton Climate Initiative taught Haddad about managing an NGO and the role that civil society takes between the state and private sector, lessons he is applying to the Renaissance Project, the report states.
El-Haddad represented the Clinton Foundations Clinton Climate Initiative in Egypt during his overlapping tenure, according to his LinkedIn profile. He additionally setup the foundations office in Egypt and managed official registration, supervised policy-making workshops & presented foundations views, and presented projects to high-level government officials, among many other duties.
El-Haddad left the Clinton Foundation in August 2012, two months after Morsi assumed the Egyptian presidency. He was appointed a senior adviser and media spokesman to the Muslim Brotherhood in January 2013 and served in that role until his arrest. El-Haddad regularly defended the Brotherhoods authoritarian crackdown on civil society, even running damage control in December 2012 when Morsi supporters attacked women and children.
When widespread Democratic protests broke out on June 30, El-Haddad referred to the demonstrators as violent thugs in an interview with the Free Beacon. The anti-Morsi camp are providing a political endorsement to the violence, he said at the time. Some have resorted to violence because they didnt do well at the ballot box.
El-Haddad did not respond to an email request for comment sent shortly after reports emerged of his arrest. The Clinton Foundation did not respond to multiple requests for comment on El-Haddads employment and arrest.
Illicit but inevitable.
CAiR is in bed with the current administration no doubt. 30 years ago they woukd have been arresting them as a terrorist sponsored network.
This is a combined list. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.
Arabs picked up this liberal tactic because it's effective.
CAIR was an unidicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation. The Bush Administration prosecuted the HLF for financing terrorism.
CAIR is a terrorist organization, period.
No even 30. Merely 6. See my post above.
The U.S. has been sold to the highest bidder
Yep, a 100% terrorist organization and that rat bastard Grover Norquist is one of their main agenda setters.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The FBI didn’t ‘partner’ with Germans during World War II... guess we were blessed in the past. If this bunch was alive back then they’d be protecting the NAZIS from ‘hateful remarks’...
