Whistleblower Philip Haney, who is set to
testify before a Senate subcommittee Tuesday, recently shared some of
his remarkable story with CBN's Jennifer Wishon.
After the terror attack in Orlando, the
Justice Department tried to redact all references the shooter made to
Islam during his 911 call.
That blunder allowed the public to see the
type of scrubbing that's been going on behind the federal government's
closed doors for years—a systematic erasing of links between Islam and
"They told me we want you to eliminate—the
word was modify—all the linking information in about 150 records that I
put into the system on—guess what group? The Muslim Brotherhood," Haney
told CBN News.
That was in 2009, one year after President
Barack Obama was elected. Haney says the president relied on the
Brotherhood and other Islamic groups with ties to terrorism to craft
"Then in 2012 it happened again. This time
they didn't just modify the information in the records, they completely
eliminated them out of the system, erased them forever and then they
investigated me for putting that information into the system when that's
exactly the job that I was supposed to be doing," Haney said.
Haney told CBN News
he's been investigated nine times. At one point he was picked apart by
three federal agencies at once. He was exonerated, but through his
experiences he's come to realize spiritual warfare is taking place at
the highest levels of government. (Screengrab via CBN News)
"I can't explain to you the ideology or the
worldview of this administration that makes them so adamant to protect
Islam from harm by addressing it in its true nature," Haney said.
"How has your Christian faith helped you get through all of this?" Wishon asked.
"We're talking about very, very high level
malevolent kind of forces here at work," he replied. "And it is very
sobering to see these kind of things operating—and these are Biblical
level events that we're talking about."
Haney's book, See Something, Say Nothing, details his tumultuous time at the Department of Homeland Security.
After living in the Middle East and studying
terrorism, he believes jihad is a tactic radical Muslims are using to
achieve their goal of implementing Sharia law in the U.S., Europe and
around the world.
"The power of Sharia is very difficult to
exaggerate—how much influence it has over the lives of Muslims around
the world," he warned.
According to Haney, this is a battle between the Constitution and Sharia law.
"Are we going to submit to the influence of
Sharia law and make it legal for one particular religion to have more
than one wife?" he said. "Or are we going to say 'No, you cannot
implement those provisions as long as you want to be a citizen of the
United States'" he said.
What America needs, Haney says, is to focus on the Constitution.
"And if you become more familiar with the
Constitution you'll be able to see more clearly the points of contact,
of conflict, between the U.S. Constitution and Sharia Law," he said.
"And then you can discuss it without fear of becoming a racist or a
bigot or an Islamaphobe."
