Former Agent: FBI Closed Orlando Jihadi Investigation “Because Its Getting Its Advice From Muslims Hostile To Us”

Excerpted from The Washington Free Beacon: The Florida terrorist attack last weekend revealed multiple failures of Obama administration counterterrorism policies that critics say are hamstrung by liberal “political correctness.”

Security analysts said the attack exposed failures of the administration’s counterterrorism policies that were designed to separate Islam from the jihadist terrorism that continues to spread from the Middle East to Europe and now the United States.

The attack early Sunday by security guard Omar Mateen, 29, included a 911 call to police stating the mass shooting was conducted in support of the Islamic State terror group. A total of 49 people were killed at a crowded Orlando nightclub.

It was the worst mass shooting in American history and the deadliest terror attack since the September 11, 2001, strikes on New York City and Washington, D.C.

FBI Director James Comey defended the bureau despite the fact that agents first identified Mateen as a terror risk in May 2013 after a coworker alerted authorities that he had voiced sympathy for Islamic terrorists.

The tipoff showed that the Department of Homeland Security’s high-profile tip program, called “see something, say something” is not enough to prevent terrorist attacks.

The FBI gave up investigating Mateen after two interrogations. Mateen told agents he had made pro-terrorist comments because he felt he was a victim of religious discrimination from coworkers because he was Muslim.

“He admitted making the statements that his coworkers reported, but explained that he did it in anger because he thought his coworkers were discriminating against him and teasing him because he was Muslim. After ten months of investigation, we closed the preliminary investigation,” Comey said in Washington.

Former FBI Agent John Guandolo said the FBI mistakenly closed its investigation because it had no idea how to respond to jihadist threats because the bureau does not teach agents about Islamist doctrine, such as Sharia law, that is used as a guide for terrorist operations and activities.

“This investigation was closed because FBI leadership has systematically refused to look at and teach Sharia to its agents because it is getting its advice on Islam from Muslims who are hostile to us and our system of government,” Guandolo said.

Comey said the FBI would examine whether it should have handled the case differently. “So far, the honest answer is, I don’t think so,” he said.

Guandolo said the FBI director was wrong.

“Fifty Americans are dead, the FBI had the killer in their sights and let him go, and the FBI director is okay with this,” he said. “Not knowing something that is a requirement of your profession—like an FBI director not understanding that Sharia is the key to understanding the entire global war—is unprofessional.”

Comey said Mateen declared he was conducting the attack on behalf of the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, and pledged his loyalty to the group during his 911 calls from the club.

Mateen also stated the nightclub murders were carried out in support of the two Islamists who carried out the 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon that killed three people. He also was supporting a Florida terrorist who died carrying out a suicide bombing for the Syrian al Qaeda group Al Nusra Front.

Comey said the FBI was confused about Mateen’s motive because of his support for multiple groups, including the Iranian-backed Shiite terror group Hezbollah, the Sunni terror group al Qaeda, and its rival Sunni offshoot, the Islamic State.

“This is one of the more frightening comments, but it is a falsehood American intelligence officials have been regurgitating since 9/11,” Guandolo said.

“The lie in the government goes like this: ‘Sunni and Shia hate each other and don’t work together,’” he said. “That is wrong on so many practical levels.”

Radical Shiite Iran has supplied weapons and material to Sunni al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, also Sunni, in Iraq, he said.

“Mostly, these comments demonstrate the FBI director is fundamentally ignorant of basic facts about our enemy,” Guandolo said.

Sebastian Gorka, a counterterrorism specialist, also faulted the administration’s adoption of politically correct policies for the failures to prevent the Orlando massacre.

“Political correctness is endangering the lives of Americans,” said Gorka, the Gen. Horner distinguished chair of military theory at Marine Corps University.

“I have spoken to many law enforcement officers who are angry and not just frustrated that a political matrix and narrative is being forced upon them, and they are not allowed to speak accurately and truthfully about what the threat is and who the enemy is,” Gorka added. Keep reading
