Kifah Mustapha is a known Hamas operative and an unindicted co-conspirator in the landmark Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial, the most successful such prosecution of terrorism financing — in this case of Hamas — in U.S. history.
So how could U.S. officials, charged with securing the nation against the very terrorism Mustapha’s activities supported (as laid out in court documents filed by federal investigators), have possibly invited him into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and the FBI’s training center at Quantico during a six-week “Citizen’s Academy” in 2010?
“The plugs had to be pulled on our (watch) system” just to get Mustapha in the NCTC door, Patrick Poole wrote online at Big Peace, quoting a Department of Homeland Security official. After all, “the NCTC has Kifah Mustapha on the highest watch list we have.”
So who pulled those plugs? Wouldn’t it be great to get a bunch of national security pooh-bahs into one room to try to find out?
