Congressman Gohmert Concerned That Political Correctness Will Undermine FBI Counterterrorism

In recent weeks and months the Obama administration has gone to great lengths to scrub FBI training literature of anything that discusses Islam as a possible inspiration for terrorism.

This unbelievably wrong-headed approach defies logic to such a great extent that it is difficult to believe that there isn’t an intentional effort at work within the government to prevent any investigation of the obvious connection between Islam and violent Jihad in the form of terrorism directed at the USA.

To make matters worse, we have now learned that the FBI has refused to identify for Congress the so-called experts that have been employed to do the “scrubbing.”

Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas, a former judge, has thankfully raised the alarm about this whole program in general and the FBI’s refusal to identify those doing the scrubbing in the context of the FBI’s sorry history of establishing ties to organizations with ties to terrorism, such as CAIR and ISNA (both of which were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing trial in US history.

Unfortunately, we feel certain that as long as Eric Holder and Barack Obama are in office, these types of policies will persist. We can only hope that more qualified and sober successors to those two will be able to reverse these ridiculous policies and unshackle the intellectual pursuit of the truth as the federal government tries to understand the nature of the enemy we face.
