Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer was a member of the military intelligence operations in the early days of the war in Afghanistan and chronicled his early efforts against the Taliban and Al Qaeda following the terror attacks of 9/11 in his book, Operation Dark Heart. He is a frequent guest on cable news and has an enormous wealth of sources in the US intelligence community.
Friday morning, he joined me and co-host Brian Wilson on our morning radio program on WMAL in Washington DC to comment on CIA Director John Brennan’s remarkable testimony Thursday on Capitol Hill detailing how ISIS is targeting the refugee and open borders to infiltrate our country.
“It’s gotten so bad they can’t cover it up anymore,” Shaffer said of Brennan’s testimony which reinforces the opinions of many critics of Obama’s failed policies in the Middle East. “I think some of these guys recognize that tying their future to the White House and the complete – I’ll just say it – lies that come out of the White House is going to be detrimental to their political future,” Shaffer added.
“Brennan is finally telling the truth,” he added.
Shaffer then addressed Brennan’s testimony regarding ISIS’ attempts to breach US territory through the porous national borders and by exploiting the Obama Administration’s lax policies toward immigration and refugee migration.
“I got the percentage from one of my sources. We’re talking about, right now, in the refugee stream, between 15-17% of individuals coming through the refugee stream are ISIS. Add to that the layer of the fact that we can’t really stream these folks.”
By the way, Hillary Clinton, presumptive presidential nominee for the Democrats, is on the record saying she wants to increase the number of these refugees to the United States by as much as 500% when she becomes president.
Later in the interview, Shaffer addressed how political correctness is stifling any opportunity to address this threat, or the warning signs that were evident regarding Omar Mateen prior to last weekend’s terror attacks in Orlando.
Shaffer singled out the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as one of the biggest obstacles preventing this administration from truly focusing on how to stop our enemy-which-can-not-be-named.
If you have the FBI out working, for goodness sake don’t ignore the instincts of a $120,000/yr agent who you’ve put a lot of money into to make him the pointy edge of the spear, from doing his job. That’s where CAIR comes in. We gotta get rid of CAIR. CAIR is an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trials. They are a Muslim Brotherhood cover. We have go to accept the fact that this propaganda machine of radical Islam is doing everything it can to blind us to the enemy. If we don’t do that, we’re gonna have more problems.
