The Hill has a post up by Philip Haney in which Mr. Haney, a former Department of Homeland Security official, alleges that he was ordered to remove pertinent information about terrorists from law enforcement databases.

As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (May 2010), Detroit “honor killing” perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015).

Local Politics


The Especially Attentive Gentle Reader may remember that I was down in Annapolis a few weeks ago advising a legislator from our county on drafting a bill to deal with a matter of local interest. The Legislature is back in session, and I’ve been asked to come down and help with some more of the technical points before the bill is introduced. The travel and meetings will punch a good-sized hole in the day, so blogging may be a bit light.
