On Tuesday, the Center for Security Policy (CSP) released through email to the media a damaging and serious national security concern report that exposes that a U.S. House Intelligence Committee member, Rep. André Carson (D-IN) has extensive ties the terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood. CSP stated that Carson is a potential national security risk and/or a vehicle for Islamist Influence Operations in the U.S.
CSP reported that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently appointed Carson to a sought-after position on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. This panel is charged with oversight of the United States’ most sensitive national intelligence capabilities and operations. Those capabilities could include anything directed at Islamic supremacists seeking to impose worldwide through violent Jihad. Furthermore, when necessary, through stealthy forms of jihad, which is what the totalitarian program radical Islamists call, shariah.
CSP pointed out that the preeminent among the practitioners of this jihadist agenda is the Muslim Brotherhood. According to evidence introduced by the U.S. government into the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2008, the Brotherhood’s self-declared mission in America is “a kind of grand jihad” in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within, thereby “sabotaging” it’s miserable house by their hands. In other words, those who are non-Muslims and those of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
The evidence of the Muslim Brotherhood’s self-declared mission is outlined from the 1991 Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America, Government Exhibit 003-0085, 3:04-CR-240-G which can be obtained here.
Center President Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. stated, “It is, therefore, problematic and potentially detrimental to the national security that Rep. Carson has extensive and longstanding ties to organizations and individuals associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. As established in a dossier and video released today by the Center for Security Policy, the Indiana congressional representative has an extensive record of involvement with, support of and support from a virtual Who’s Who of Brotherhood front organizations in America and leading figures in the jihad movement in this country.”
“The dossier makes it clear that, as a group, they have “a documented history” of serving as unregistered foreign agents, engaging in material support for terrorism and possessing direct ties to the Brotherhood’s Palestinian franchise, Hamas, a designated terrorist organization, ”said Gaffney. Gaffney pointed out that Rep. Carson has been involved as a guest speaker, panelist, fundraiser, a recipient of funds, and other entitlements from several U.S. based Muslim organizations. Those organizations include, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and their associated chapters, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), and the Brotherhood’s new proto-political party, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO).
In the Carson Dossier report, it also shows that Carson has ties to Muslim groups who have a documented history of serving as unregistered foreign agents, engaging in material support for terrorism, and possessing direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian franchise, Hamas, a designated terrorist organization. The report also states that the fact that Rep. Carson’s association with these organizations has persisted even after he has had every opportunity as well as a responsibility to know the threat they pose to U.S. national security displays, at the very best, a grave lack of judgment that is incompatible with service on the HPSCI. In addition, the prospect that the nation’s most highly-classified information could fall into Muslim Brotherhood hands whether purposefully or by accident – by way of a HPSCI member who associates on a regular, friendly and ongoing basis with its operatives is a grave one. It merits a rigorous counter-intelligence assessment of the potential risks associated with Rep. Carson’s vulnerabilities to recruitment, blackmail or other suborning.
Center President Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. unveiled the Carson Dossier in the course of a presentation about the Muslim Brotherhood, its civilization jihad and its success in advancing its stated mission of “destroying Western civilization from within”, known as “Stealth Jihad” before the National Religious Broadcasters on Tuesday.
In response to the report, Gaffney stated, “Given the Muslim Brotherhood’s unalterable commitment to Islamic supremacism, the imposition of shariah worldwide and the establishment of a caliphate to rule globally in accordance with that totalitarian program – in place of our constitutional republic and all other forms of government, what the Obama administration is doing is bad enough. Its serial efforts to engage, legitimate, fund, arm and otherwise empower the Brotherhood overseas and to rely upon the Brothers’ domestic front organizations as representatives of and outreach vehicles to the Muslim community in this country are intensifying the dangers we face from the Global Jihad Movement.”
“It is wholly unacceptable to have as a member of a key congressional committee charged with overseeing U.S. intelligence and counterintelligence an individual with extensive personal and political associations with the Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihadist infrastructure in America, “Gaffney said. “At a minimum, Rep. Andre Carson’s presence on the House Intelligence Committee will necessitate restrictions on his access to classified information about the presence and operations in this country of what amounts to a subversive Islamist Fifth Column and his participation in the panel’s deliberations concerning how it can best be countered.”
“Since there are at the moment, few topics more in need of assiduous oversight by the Congress, even if there were no actual risk of compromise of national security secrets or Muslim Brotherhood influence operations associated with Rep. Carson’s presence on the House Intelligence Committee, “Gaffney said. “The potential impediment he may constitute to such work demands his removal from this panel.”
