President Obama invited an ACLU lawyer who has sued the government on assorted issues to aid terrorists, to the Ramadan dinner held at the White House in early September. This Canadian lawyer, Jameel Jaffer, was also a leader in the ACLU effort to force Gitmo to close, and personal lawyer for a Swiss Muslim denied admission to the US as an academic because of his numerous and lengthy terrorist associations.
Some of the facts for this article come from a blog entitled “From Sea to Shining Sea.” Blogs are not usually used as a basis for any of these articles, but the factual allegations about an ACLU attorney who was invited to the White House dinner celebrating Ramadan, are all well-sourced in an article on this site on 3 Sept., 2009.
On 3 September 2009 this blog published an article on one of the guests in the White House for a dinner in honor of the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. Jameel Jaffer is in charge of the ACLU’s “national security project.” That Project has filed suits against FBI security letters, against warrantless interception of international phone calls, and has lead the effort to shut down the prison at Guantanamo Bay.
He was also the lead attorney seeking to get Tariq Ramadan into the US as an “academic.” Ramadan had previously been banned from France for associations with Islamic terrorists in Algeria. His associations with other Islamic terrorists were associated in courts and outside with various other Islamic terrorists in numerous countries. He denied that bin Laden was involved in the 9/11 attacks, and referred to that and the bombing in Bali and Madrid as “interventions.”
His lawyer, Mr. Jaffer is a Canadian. He was vetted to attend the dinner by White House staff, and approved by the Counsels Office and the Office of Political Affairs. This writer was invited to the White House once. There is, or there should be, a detailed review of the backgrounds of anyone who comes into that building with the opportunity to meet the President.
The article includes this statement. “Work against America and get invited to the White House for dinner with the president,” says a current CIA employee. “I can’t tell you what kind of a signal this sends to us, not that we needed another one from this administration.”
