CNN has been criticized for reporting the arrest of a suspect in the Boston bombing case when no one in fact had been arrested. The channel was apparently given inaccurate information by an anonymous official. Even more serious, however, was the claim by CNN’s “terrorism analyst,” Juliette Kayyem, that the Islamic terrorists who reportedly carried out the Boston bombings were not Islamic terrorists.
Identified as “the most senior Arab American female appointee in the Obama Administration,” where she served as Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the Department of Homeland Security, Kayyem told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Saturday that the words “Islamic terrorists” were not appropriate in this case and that she had a “fear” of linking Muslims to terror.
CNN itself reported on April 16, “Juliette Kayyem, CNN contributor and former U.S. assistant secretary for homeland security, cautioned against putting too much stock in the early reports of Arab involvement.”
This is the person who helped coordinate the Obama Administration’s response to al Qaeda, including in Boston itself, before the deadly bombings. Since leaving the administration she has emerged as the most prominent former Obama Administration official who has publicly supported terror TV channel Al Jazeera’s penetration of the U.S. media market.
The new “Al Jazeera America” has already announced it will open a “news bureau” in Detroit, an area with one of the largest concentrations of Arabs and Muslims outside the Middle East.
Kayyem, a Boston Globe columnist, is the former homeland security adviser to Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and is said to have “helped coordinate Boston Marathon security in years past…” After that, she served President Obama as Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the Department of Homeland Security.
“As Assistant Secretary,” her biography states, “Ms. Kayyem was responsible for coordinated and consistent planning between the Department and all of its state, local, tribal, and territorial partners on issues as varied as immigration, intelligence sharing, military affairs, border security, and the response to operational events such as H1N1 influenza outbreak, the December 25th attempted terrorist attack, the Haiti earthquake, and the BP oil spill.”
Incredibly, she wrote a September 20, 2011, column entitled, “The war on terror is over,” trashing officials of the Bush Administration for their “militaristic” approach to defeating the Islamists.
She had previously written a column for The Boston Globe accusing Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) of “anti-Muslim paranoia” for raising questions about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the Obama Administration.
Speaking early in the morning on Saturday, April 19, CNN’s Jake Tapper pointed out the obvious, based on previous reporting: “It certainly seems as though these individuals are Islamic terrorists.” Kayyem shot back, “…those are two separate words at this stage, because I think after 9/11 we have this fear of tying a Muslim with terrorism. We shouldn’t do that.”
A “fear” of tying a Muslim to terrorism? Did the Kayyem way of perceiving the world infect other agencies in the Obama Administration? Is this, in fact, a viewpoint that is blind or sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood? Does this help explain why the FBI ignored the terrorists’ devotion to Islam and the travel by the older brother to a Muslim region of Russia?
Earlier, Kayyem had played that down as well, saying to Tapper, “Two brothers, from Chechnya. We don’t know their motivations. We don’t know their ideology. We don’t know if they have ties to other organizations or anyone abroad, are responsible for the bombings here and a lot of mayhem last night, including the death of a police officer.”
By this point it was known they were Muslims and that they were accused of the Boston bombings.
She told Tapper, “But in terms of why they did this, this is where it gets really too early to say. That they are from a certain part of the world, or that they have a certain religion, it really is something that we—we just don’t know. They could have very possibly self-radicalized and then planned this on their own with no ties to anyone else, or one, or maybe one or two other people. But some foreign conspiracy, it’s hard to—there is no proof of it yet.”
Tapper seemed flabbergasted, based on what was already known about the brothers: “Just to underline the point you’re making. You are not suggesting anything other than the fact—other than questioning how big this network is. It certainly seems as though these individuals are Islamic terrorists.”
This is when Kayyem protested: “…those are two separate words at this stage, because I think after 9/11 we have this fear of tying a Muslim with terrorism. We shouldn’t do that.”
Perhaps this mind-set explains why she made headlines as the highest ranking former Obama official to urge U.S. cable and satellite providers to carry Al Jazeera into American homes.
In her column, “Let US see Al Jazeera,” Kayyem termed Al Jazeera English “the cousin to the powerful Qatar-based world news network,” without any reference to its service on behalf of al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. It was a strange omission by someone supposedly interested in the truth about Islamic terrorism and the dangers it represents.
Writing at the American Thinker about Kayyem’s campaign for Al Jazeera, Ed Lasky wrote, “What could go wrong? What harm could more inflammatory misinformation cause? Have we not learned anything the last few years about how people such as Nidal Hasan can be driven to kill by propaganda?”
Hasan was not “self-radicalized,” as Kayyem might put it, but indoctrinated and incited to violence by foreign jihadists who want to kill Americans.
Hasan carried out the massacre at Fort Hood after communicating with jihadists abroad, mostly through the Internet. Al Jazeera would bring these incendiary and anti-American messages into 40-50 million Americans homes, including Detroit, known as the Arab capital of North America, through the new “Al Jazeera America.”
Nevertheless, Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) is letting the deal go through without any hearings.
Dr. Judea Pearl, the father of slain journalist Daniel Pearl, supports an investigation of the deal and says, “Al Jazeera weaves the ideological structure and combustible angers from which Jihadi recruits eventually emerge.”
Do we want to increase the dangers of more Boston massacre-type bombings in America by letting “Al Jazeera America” establish “news bureaus” in Detroit and 11 other American cities?

Freshman Massachusetts Senator Elizabet Warren appears to be at least as socialist as her predecessor, Ted Kennedy.
Like the “Lion of the Senate,” Warren is also enmeshed in the U.S. socialist movement. Unlike Kennedy though, her ancestry doesn’t make her quite so untouchable. Like Kennedy, she almost certainly has presidential ambitions.
Democratic Socialists of America is big in Massachusetts. America’s largest Marxist group is entrenched at Harvard, controls the Bay State’s labor movement and commands the allegiance, or at least respect, of a whole swathe of municipal, county, state and federal politicians.
Ted Kennedy was deeply entrenched in DSA and Liz Warren is too.
Elizabeth Warren is particularly close to well known Democratic Party activist Heather Booth, one of the most important “progressive” operatives in the country. Booth has been working for a socialist USA since the 1960s, though is very loathe to use the “s’ word herself.
Booth has questioned whether it is “useful in an American context to focus attention on socialism, given its anti-democratic record. Instead she has argued that a radical definition of democracy has a greater chance of changing minds and political practice in the United States.”
Booth has been a key trainer of Democratic activists, most recently for DSA friendly Barack Obama, but starting in 1993, Heather Booth worked on electoral campaigns and with the Democratic National Committee and was the Training Director for the Committee during the Clinton administration.
Booth honed her skills while running Chicago’s infamous Midwest Academy, a DSA-controlled school for “community organizers’ based on the principles of radical agitator Saul Alinsky. Booth has stated “Alinsky is to community-organizing as Freud is to psychoanalysis.”
While never publicly admitting to DSA membership herself, Booth has a 40-year history with the organization.
According to the December 29, 1979, issue of Information Digest, the “initiators” of the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (forerunner of Democratic Socialists of America), formed in 1973 as a result of a split within the Socialist Party USA, largely over the issue of cooperation with communists, included Julian Bond, John Conyers, Ronald Dellums, Doug Fraser, Joyce Miller, William Winpisinger, Jerry Wurf and Heather Booth.
Booth has worked with DSA since then and is often described as a “friend” of the organization.
Heather Booth’s main connection to Liz Warren come through her latest “front” group, Americans for Financial Reform.
On January 28, 2010, Booth wrote in the Huffington Post:
Members of AFR’s Advisory Board include Alan Charney, a former DSA National Director; AFSCME official Richard Ferlauto, a one time Connecticut DSAer; and Robert Kuttner, an Obama biographer, from DSA aligned “think tank” Demos and himself a long time DSA supporter.

Right from the start, Elizabeth Warren was AFR’s best friend.
As far back as 2009, Booth and Warren were working together to promote a Consumer Finance Protection Agency.
In 2010, AFR circulated an online petition asking President Barack Obama to appoint Elizabeth Warren to head the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and a rap song urging the same —― Got A New Sheriff, by the Main Street Brigade, also appeared.
Booth invoked her labor union (read DSA) support in order get President Obama to appoint Warren to head the new agency.
According to 2010 Huffington Post article:
On April 6th, 2010, Americans for Financial Reform and its radical ally, Americans for Fairness in Lending, hosted a special webinar discussion with Professor Warren and AFR Director Heather Booth for the general public. It focused on “where things stand in the movement for financial reform and how everyday citizens can get involved in the fight to rein in the big banks and get the economy back on track.”
Despite considerable pressure from AFR and other groups, Obama didn’t appoint Warren. Undeterred, Warren, backed by the DSA-controlled Massachusetts labor movement, decided to run for the U.S. Senate against Republican incumbent Scott Brown in 2012.
Heather Booth was there to help her friend.
On March 21, 2012, a “Young Professionals Event” fundraiser was held at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Boston for Elizabeth Warren
The event was hosted by Alisha Bhagat, Heather Booth, her DSA husband Paul Booth, Institute for Policy Studies “arch progressive” Robert Borosage and Mike Lux, former Special Assistant to the President for Public Liaison in the Bill Clinton White House, former Obama Transition Team outreach to the “progressive” movement, influential blogger/consultant and one time Iowa Democratic Socialists of America member.
Elizabeth Warren was not slow in returning a favor to a comrade.
When Midwest Academy held its annual award ceremony on December 12, 2012 at the Eatonville Restaurant, Washington DC, Elizabeth Warren was guest speaker.
Pictured below, Warren mingles with Heather Booth and convicted felon, Democratic Party strategist and long-time DSA associate, Bob Creamer, and in the background, well known Chicago DSAer Roberta Lynch.
Bob Creamer, Heather Booth, Roberta Lynch and Elizabeth Warren
Creamer is the husband of Illinois Democratic congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, who was also in attendance. Schakowsky too has been a confirmed DSA member.
Long time DSA member Julian Bond was given a “Lifetime Achievement Award,” while yet another one time DSAer, Mike Lux, was given a Progressive Leadership Award.
Elizabeth Warren no doubt enjoyed a great night mingling with her Marxist friends and comrades.

Last week was horrific with the Boston Marathon bombing claiming the lives of 3 and injuring several score. Two Chechen brothers, one a U.S. citizen, one not, were caught on video placing the bombs. The older brother (the non-citizen) was shot and killed by police (or by his younger brother driving over him, not sure which). His younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, got away and was later caught hiding in a boat. He was not Mirandized when he was caught because he was deemed a national threat. I’m sorry, but no matter what the scumbag did, he has rights as an American. It would seem that our politicians don’t give a flying crap about the Constitution any more. Just a short while ago, it was determined that he will not be tried as an enemy combatant, but as an American citizen. Time to lawyer up and the way things are going, I bet he stands a good chance of getting off or getting a greatly reduced sentence. He is being charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and could face the death penalty, but more likely will be pampered and honored in a cushy retreat by other Islamic radicals. Another item of interest – ask yourself why Putin was consulted by our President before and after the arrests. Just saying. Also ask yourself about the 12 person sleeper cell that is being hunted in connection to this bombing.
But as bad as that story is, I fear there is another that is even worse that is being covered up. There was someone arrested before the Chechen brothers were caught, a Saudi national by the name of Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi. Rumor has it that he has strong connections to a powerful Saudi family and that he is a known terrorist. He also has many known terrorists in his family. But the Obama Administration has been doing all it can to muffle anything having to do with this “person of interest.” This kid just happened to be there at the finish line rooting for a runner and probably helping with the bombing. He is also on a terrorist watch list.
In January, Saudi travelers were given ‘preferred travel status’ by the U.S. Napolitano signed off on that. That means while regular Americans are treated like terrorists by the TSA, Saudi nationalists (remember 15 of the 19 bombers on 9-11 were Saudi nationals) get to walk right through security and into the U.S. Everything is upside down. Also remember, that after 9-11, President Bush let 140 Saudis in the U.S. get on a plane and go home when the rest of the country was shut down. Do the math. Hell, even a SWAG would do.
Here are the background facts from The Blaze:
Todd Starnes’ article at Fox was pulled – here’s the cached version. People reporting on this, according to Glenn Beck, are being threatened by the government with up to 20 years in prison. How very fascist of them.
There are questions that urgently need to be answered on the Saudi in the hospital:
I think Beck is right, Obama and his Islamic brethren in our government have a deal with the Wahhabist Saudis who are the largest funders of terrorism on the planet. And a cultural Jihad is taking place here in the U.S. It has to do with oil, banking and Islam.
The Saudis have infiltrated this country solidly. They are in our government, our schools and our media. CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood are conducting a soft coup from within and we are letting it happen. It is a form of warfare that came straight from Italian Communist Party leader, Antonio Gramsci, who promoted exchanging the subtle long-term infiltration of institutions and Government for the outdated, confrontational street-marching tactics of Mao Tse Tung. It is the blending and merging of Islamism and Marxism and it is Death to America.
Every time there is an attack here, our rights are increasingly curtailed and we are further suppressed, while Islamic extremists get more and more freedom. The former Vice President of CAIR in Dallas, Texas is now running the Syrian Rebels – they are terrorists. Look at the Ft. Hood bombing, Benghazi and others. We let terrorist killers walk while persecuting Americans. Islam is in our White House and its purveyors are ruling America. They are teaching our kids and rewriting our laws. America, we are at war on our own soil and Saudi Arabia is behind much of it.
We have to stop sleeping with the Saudis, before they finish us off in our sleep.
