SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
One of the defining themes of Donald Trump’s candidacy was his repudiation of the willful blindness of the Obama-Clinton administration about the nature of the Sharia-supremacist enemies we confront. Unlike Barack Obama, Mr. Trump made a point of repeatedly calling them “radical Islamic terrorists.”
The New York Times has reported, however, that the President’s new National Security Advisor told his first staff meeting last week that he rejected that characterization. If true, Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster seems unlikely to advance and execute the Trump strategy for Victory over Jihad.
Donald Trump’s voters rightly expect him to fulfill his pledge to “make America safe again” against radical Islamic terrorists. They will hold him accountable for his promise to eradicate such jihadists “from the face of the earth.” His team must, therefore, fully share his vision – and faithfully deliver on his commitments.
Federal officials have threatened law enforcement agents with termination and criminal prosecution for leaking information about the threat of terrorist attacks near the Texas-Mexico border, according to a new report.
The government watchdog organization Judicial Watch (JW) says that after it reported on the possibility of radical Islamic terrorists in Juarez, Mexico — just across the border from El Paso — a memo containing warning agents about leaking information “came down through the chain of command.”
Mexican cartel violence is at an all-time high along the increasingly porous southern border yet the Obama Administration has shut down a critical intelligence agency dedicated to identifying, tracking and severing the nexus between drug trafficking and terrorism.
It’s a senseless move, which is why it was done very quietly. The only real way to discover that the Justice Department’s 19-year-old National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) has been closed is by trying to visit its website. It simply says that on June 15, 2012, the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) closed. The public is redirected to another website with “historical materials, an archived version of the NDIC.”
