Reporter: THIS

PROVOCATIVE STATEMENT

CREATED A FIRESTORM LAST

MONTH BECAUSE OF ITS

CONTENTS AND THE AUTHOR'S

GOVERNMENT ROLE.

I DO CONSIDER THE UNITED

STATES AN ISLAMIC COUNTRY,

WITH AN ISLAMICLY COMPLIANT

CONSTITUTION.

THE TWEET BY MOHAMMED EN

MOHAMMED EL-BARI RAISED

EYEBROWS.

HE HELPS CRAFT AMERICAN

COUNTERTOMORROW

COUNTERTERRORISM POLICIES.

HE GOES TO BAT FOR THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

HE IS PASSIONATE THAT THEY

ARE THE GOOD GUYS THAT THE

U.S. NEEDS TO ALLY WITH.

Reporter: RYAN HAS

INTERVIEWED HIM AT LENGTH,

AND SAYS THE SENIOR HOMELAND

SECURITY ADVISOR STAUNCHLY

SUPPORTS THE RADICAL MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

HE HAD THE SYMBOL MOST

CLOSELY ASSOCIATED TO THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

AND ALL OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD SUPPORTERS HAD A

SPECIFIC SIGN THEY PUT UP ON

TWITTER AND Facebook PAGES

AND HE WAS RIGHT ALONG WITH

THEM.

Reporter: EL-BARI SPOKE

AT A 2004 EVENT HONORING

IRAN'S AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI.

HE STOOD ACCUSED OF LEAKING

SENSITIVE GOVERNMENT

DOCUMENTS TO THE MEDIA.

IN LIGHT OF THOSE CHARGES,

TEXAS CONGRESSMAN LOUIE

GOMAR PRESSED JA JANET

NAPOLITANO IN A HEATED

EXCHANGE.

ARE YOU SAYING BEFORE

THIS CONGRESS RIGHT NOW THAT

AS SECRETARY OF HOME LAND

SECURITY THAT IT IS A LIE

THAT MOHAMMED EL-BIARI

DOWNLOADED INFORMATION FROM

A SECRET WEBSITE, USING THE

SECRET SECURITY WEBSITE THAT

YOU GAVE HIM.

I'M SAYING THAT IS NOT

CORRECT.

WHAT BOTHERS ME, QUITE

FRANKLY, ARE THE ALLEGATIONS

ARE MADE AGAINST ANYONE WHO

HAPPENS TO BE MUSLIM.

WELL, THE ALLEGATIONS ARE

NOT BECAUSE HE IS MUSLIM.

Reporter: IT IS STILL

UNCLEAR WHETHER ANY FORMAL

INVESTIGATION ACTUALLY TOOK

PLACE AT D.H. S.

WHAT IS CLEAR HIS RECENT

PROMOTION AT THE

DEPARTMENT.

SEPTEMBER 13th, HE WAS

PROMOTED.

HE IS NOT ONLY AN OFFICIAL

ADVISOR, HE IS ONE OF THE

SELECT ADVISORS TO INFLUENCE

POLICY.

Reporter: EL-BIARI DID

NOT COMMENT.

HE IS NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO

HAS BEEN TIED TO THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

THERE IS LOTS OF

EVIDENCE.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES PERSONALLY TAKES

COUNCIL FROM MOHAMMED

MASHID, AND THAT MEANS THE

EENEMY IS INSIDE THE WIRE.

Reporter: MASHID HAS

REPORTEDLY MET WITH

PRESIDENT OBAMA TO ADVICE

HIM ON COUNTER-TERRORISM

POLICY.

AND HE SITS ON A GROUP

WORKING ON, QUOTE,"VIOLENT

EXTREMISM."

YET FRANK GAFFNEY TOLD CBN

NEWS THAT THE ORGANIZATION

HE LEADS HAS TROUBLESOME

TIES.

HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF

THE LARGEST MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD FRONT

ORGANIZATION IN THE UNITED

STATES.

Reporter: IN 2007,

FEDERAL PROSECUTORS NAMED

ISTA AS AN UNINDICTED

CO-CONSPIRATOR.

THE DEFENDANTS WERE

CONVICTED OF FUNDING THE

TERRORIST GROUP, HAMAS.

HIS GROUP WAS ALSO MENTIONED

IN SECRET MUSLIM DOCUMENTS

UNCOVERED BY THE F.B.I.

THE VERY FIRST GROUP ON

THIS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

STRATEGIC PLAN WAS THE

ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH

AMERICA.

Reporter: DESPITE

ISNA'S RADICAL TRACK RECORD,

PRESIDENT OBAMA DELIVERED A

VIDEO ADDRESS AT THE GROUP'S

ANNUAL SUMMIT THIS YEAR.

President Obama:

CONGRATULATIONS TO IMAM AGIB

AND EVERYONE AT THE SOCIETY

OF NORTH AMERICA ON

YOUR

50th CONVENTION.

Reporter: ONE NEWSPAPER

RECENTLY CLAIMED THAT THE

BROTHERHOOD IS STEPPING UP

ITS EFFORTS TO INFILTRATE

THE UNITED STATES.

IT IDENTIFIED WHAT IT SAYS

ARE 30 BROTHERHOOD

OPERATIVES THAT ARE

CURRENTLY CONDUCTING

INFLUENCE OPERATIONS ON U.S.

SOIL.
