Hillary Clinton’s State Department stopped an investigation into mosque networks, that included the place where Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen worshipped, because President Obama feared that it unfairly targeted Muslims, according to a retired Department of Homeland Security agent turned whistleblower.
In his book “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad,” agent Philip Haney said that “within a few months, the case drew the ‘concern’ of the State Department and the DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office because the Obama administration believed it unfairly singled out Muslims,”according to WND.
In December, 2015 Haney claimed that the Clinton-led State Department shut down an investigation into several mosques, among them, the one attended San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook.
On Sunday, Haney told WND that the Florida mosque Mateen attended was also part of that investigation.
In addition to putting a freeze on the investigation the administration deleted much the records related to the case.
“Along with the State Department’s and Department of Homeland Security’s quashing of the case in June 2012, the administration subsequently ordered the deletion of an additional 67 records related to a report on the Institute of Islamic Education,” WND reported.
Still, when Haney heard the name of the mosque on Sunday he knew it sounded familiar.
“This case struck me as very similar to the San Bernardino shooting case,” he told WND. “I suspected that they were both part of a national and international network of organizations.”
He said that after Sunday’s attack he checked out the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce using open-source information and confirmed his suspicions, according to WND.
