Three Muslim brothers who ran the office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were just fired on suspicion that they had violated a multitude of laws and regulations. Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were blocked from computer networks at the House of Representatives on Feb. 2.
The three men are suspected of a multitude of crimes, the most serious being accessing House members’ computer networks without their knowledge and stealing equipment from Congress. Both committees deal with a plethora of sensitive information, including documents pertaining to the War on Terror.
Think this should be news? At least one expert agrees with you.
Frank Gaffney, Jr, president of the anti-jihadi Center for Security Policy, completely annihilated the media for their absolute lack of coverage regarding this blatant breach of security. On Wednesday, he opined in a blog post that due to both the Muslim background of the IT staff and Democratic background of the affected congressmen, the media will sweep the story under the rug.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) agreed with Gaffney on Twitter, stating that "PC media bias = cover-up".
Gaffney ended the short piece with a simple plea, saying, "This travesty demands a rigorous damage-assessment, an overhauled counter-intelligence capability and a truly free press."
One can only dream.
