How badly have we been infiltrated?
Consider the state of the Department of Defense. In late September, we learned that Ariane Tabatabai who had worked with the Iranian government and secretly promoted their agenda before appearing to testify in Congress was working as the Chief of Staff to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Low Intensity Conflict.
Now, Rep Jack Bergman is demanding answers over Yousra Fazili who worked for the Islamic terror state of Qatar and now works at the Pentagon. In 2022, she became the Special Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Defense Programs at the U.S. Department of Defense
Yes, you read that correctly. From working for an Islamic terror state to Nuclear, Chemical and Biological. Now she’s
the Chief of Staff for the Comptroller and Chief Financial Officer of the Pentagon.
Do we have any kind of security screenings anymore?
Rep. Bergman’s letter to Secretary of Defense Austin points out that, “Ms. Fazili “served as a ‘strategic’ advisor to Meshal Al-Thani, the Qatari Ambassador to the U.S., for over three years, until not long before she rejoined the Pentagon in a senior staff position and then was promoted twice to her current role.”
How does one go from working for a foreign nation to working in a top position at the Pentagon anyway?
But it gets worse.
“Ms. Fazili was working closely with the Qatari Ambassador at the time that her client was targeting prominent Americans in an effort to silence Qatar’s critics, including the then-Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ed Royce, and the former acting head of the Central Intelligence Agency, Michael Morell.”
Qatar, which is an Islamic terror state that backs Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Islamic terrorist groups, actively plotted to target members of Congress.
It continues to provide sanctuary for Hamas leaders. And it’s an ally of Iran.
What’s the Pentagon’s response?
In a three-paragraph response to Bergman last month, DOD’s Rheanne Wirkkala said that Fazili was hired and vetted “in accordance with all appropriate laws and policies,”
Same as the response to employing an Iranian agent in a top position at the DOD.
We have been infiltrated in plain sight. Our national security has become a joke. This will take more than just a housecleaning to fix.
