President Barack Obama is not interested in hearing intelligence information about Islamist groups he does not consider to be terrorist groups — even if they’re on the U.S. list of designated terrorists, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson revealed on the Steve Malzberg Show Thursday, according to PJ Media.
The host of Full Measure told Malzberg that according to sources close to the White House, Obama stubbornly refuses to hear about intelligence surrounding radical Islamic terror groups. “I have talked to people who have worked in the Obama administration who firmly believe he has made up his mind, I would say closed his mind, they say, to the intelligence they try to bring him about various groups he does not consider terrorists even if they’re on the U.S. list of designated terrorists,” Attkisson said. “I don’t know the reasoning for it — I’ve only been told by those who have allegedly attempted to present him, or been in the circle that has attempted to present him, with certain intelligence that they said he doesn’t want it, he said he doesn’t want it or he won’t read it in some instances.”
As Kerry Picket reported at the Daily Caller, Obama is having domestic law enforcement officers “trained to focus on the behavior” of refugees coming from terrorism hot spots rather than “their political, ideological or religious background.”
