At PJM, terrorism researcher Patrick Poole reports that Mohamed Elibiary, an appointee on President Obama's Homeland Security Advisory Council, is in hot water with the Texas Department of Public Safety (TDPS). The issue is whether Elibiary used his privileged access to a state law-enforcement database to acquire intelligence reports and then tried to shop them to the media, urging that they showed rampant "Islamophobia" at TDPS under Governor Rick Perry.
Poole says no story was published because, according to one press source, there was "nothing remotely resembling Islamophobia" in the leaked reports. The source told Poole, "I think [Elibiary] was hoping we would bite and not give it too much of a look in light of other media outfits jumping on the Islamophobia bandwagon."
The Islamophobia bandwagon was the subject of my column last weekend. Seems there are plenty of Islamists and Leftists climbing aboard.
