Obama wasn’t very skilled when it came to…pretty much anything. But covering up the many scandals that took place under his watch was something he truly succeeded in failing at.
During his time in office, the FBI became a particular source of embarrassment.
Not only were agents caught multiple times stealing money and drugs that were confiscated during raids, they also potentially blew the 2016 election for the Democrats when they reopened their investigation into Hillary Clinton.
As painful as all of those experiences must have been for Obama, they truly pale in comparison to what one FBI employee did with a dangerous terrorist during his presidency.
Unlike the other scandals, this one successfully remained under wraps…until now.
Recently disclosed court records reveal that an FBI translator named Daniela Greene fled to Syria in 2014 to marry an extremely dangerous member of ISIS who she was assigned to investigate.
The fluent German speaker was already married to an American soldier, but willingly left her life behind to follow a man the FBI called, a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist.”
The man Greene married was no ordinary terrorist.
He was Denis Cuspert, a German rapper turned ISIS pitchman, whose growing influence as an online recruiter for violent jihadists had put him on the radar of counter-terrorism authorities on two continents.
In Germany, Cuspert went by the rap name Deso Dogg. In Syria, he was known as Abu Talha al-Almani. He praised Osama bin Laden in a song, threatened former President Barack Obama with a throat-cutting gesture and appeared in propaganda videos, including one in which he was holding a freshly severed human head.
Evidently, Cuspert’s online ISIS recruiting was so good that it convinced Greene to run away.
But while in Syria, Greene sent messages to an undisclosed U.S. source claiming she “really messed up this time” and that she wanted to return to the U.S., despite knowing she’d face jail time for betraying her country.
In the end, Greene did escape, and after cooperating with authorities received a prison sentence of two years, which she finished serving last summer.
Given the brevity of her sentence, it’s likely that the intel Greene provided was of considerable value, but the terrorist she married remains at large.
As egregious as Greene’s actions are, her motivation seems somewhat understandable given Obama’s attitude towards Muslim terrorists.
The former president shares close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, and his administration has been caught arming ISIS and other terrorist groups.
Is it any wonder then that Greene married this violent jihadist?
After all of the Democrat’s fawning over radical Muslims, portraying them as misunderstood victims in the media, it was only a matter of time before one of their own was duped into running away with one.
Still, many don’t believe that the disgraced FBI agent has been punished enough for her crimes.
After serving her sentence, Greene traded her lofty position with the FBI for a hostess job at a hotel lounge, and she will never be employed by a government agency again in her lifetime.
What do you think? Was Greene’s punishment sufficient, or should she have been given a harsher sentence?
