So the next time DHS gropes you through their TSA agents, you might want to think of someone.
Remember Mohamed Elibiary? He’s the Muslim Brotherhood supporter—the one who said the return of the Islamic Caliphate was inevitable—who was given a seat at the Homeland Security Advisory Council. Yeah, you know, the Federal entity that consumes obscene amounts of your money to dream up new and innovative ways to violate your Constitutional rights—allegedly to protect you from people… like the Muslim Brotherhood.
Well, it seems that Mr. Elbiary is being shown the door. Nicely. Quietly. Slowly.
As the Washington Free Beacon reports,
Elibiary was originally appointed to HSAC in 2010 and reappointed in September 2013 with the elevated title of “senior fellow,” DHS informed Rep. Louie Gohmert (R., Texas) in a July letter about Elibiary’s status with the agency, according to a copy of that correspondence obtained by the Free Beacon.
“Mr. Elibiary will not be reappointed when his term expires in September of 2014,” Alan Bernstein, DHS assistant secretary for policy and chief diplomatic officer, informed Gohmert.
Bernstein provided no specific reason for this decision and a DHS spokesperson did not respond to a request for more information on the matter.
So why is Elibiary being let go?
A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser long engulfed in controversy over his radical views was let go from his role in the department last week after a long fight by lawmakers and others to revoke the individual’s privileges at DHS.
Mohamed Elibiary was until last week a senior member of DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). After years of controversy about his status at DHS, Elibiary announced his final day with the department on Twitter earlier this month and said he would remain close to the agency.
New documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon indicate that Elibiary… may have been let go by DHS in order to minimize the fallout from an investigation into allegations that he improperly accessed and used classified materials obtained with his security clearance.
Remember that, and bask in the warm, calming grip of security, next time you’re being groped and molested at the airport for the “privilege” of traveling for business, or going on vacation.
