While Donald Trump is now the president with the attention rightly focused on him and his decisions, the “ghost” of Barack Obama still haunts the halls of our government. In other words, the decisions and appointments he made still have an impact on current events – and sometimes in a deadly way.
Mr. Obama had a lot things he wanted to change as he arrived in the White House. Went he left office, he could point to very few that got accomplished, and the ones that did, like Obamacare, were hardly resounding successes. So his administration ended with the pitiful spectacle of a retiring president in search of a legacy.
Mr. Obama’s desire for a legacy may be fulfilled, just not in the way he had hoped. The nation still suffers from his poor decisions, financial recklessness, and failed leftist agenda. In fact, President Trump was just confronted with the tragic results of one of Mr. Obama’s actions.
The story starts with the suspicious hiring of three men. “[T[hree alleged Muslim spies, Abid Awan, Imran Awan, and Jamal Awan, were hired as intelligence officers by Barack Obama’s administration and given top security clearance with access to our government’s most sensitive and highly top secret information. According to Daily Caller, ‘Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computer networks without permission.’”
Note that this position, “gave them direct access to our military secrets, like missions carried out by Navy SEAL Team Six.”
They are not employed by the government anymore. The Trump administration has seen to that. “They retained their jobs after Obama left, which is not unheard of since their positions were not seen as political appointments. However, they were fired by Trump’s administration within hours after Navy SEAL William Ryan Owen was killed in Yemen during the top secret raid on al-Qaeda operatives.”
So, the question becomes one of whether there was a connection between these three alleged spies, and the death of a Navy SEAL. Clearly, there was some sort of an intelligence leak since the al-Qaeda forces in Yemen knew the SEALs were coming. According to ABC News, “[O]ne source close to the raid said, ‘The SEALs got to the compound where they were instantly met with heavy fire, and it was obvious that al-Qaeda compound fighters had been expecting the Americans.’”
Clearly, someone leaked the plans to al-Qaeda, and it had to be someone with access to top secret government information. The result was one dead SEAL. That these three were fired hours after a SEAL was killed certainly suggests a connection.
This practice of appointing to sensitive government positions those connected to radical Muslim groups was routine with the Obama administration. Captain Joseph R. John, USN (Ret), the Chairman of Combat Veterans for Congress PAC, wrote, “For nearly 8 years Obama has been filling the Washington bureaucracy including DHS, the CIA, DOD, the National Security Council, the White House, the State Department, every US Intelligence Agency, and the US Armed Forces with thousands of members of the CAIR, MPAC, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups.”
So there is Mr. Obama’s legacy: the betrayal of his country.
The most important issue is not whether one of these three men just fired by the Trump administration leaked this information to al-Qaeda in Yemen. What matters most is that more such tragedies are likely as long as suspicious men hired by Obama remain in positions that give them access to sensitive information. That Mr. Obama betrayed his country by hiring Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers and putting them in sensitive positions is the real crime.
The three fired by the Trump administration presumably no longer have access to classified information. That’s three gone. Yet the legacy of Barack Obama lives on in those his administration hired to sensitive positions who are enemies of our country. They remain as the real threat, one that will take some time to root out, even with the energy of the Trump administration.
Mr. Obama’s legacy is sealed in the harm he caused to our country. May that legacy be brief.
