Homeland Security Secretary Prioritizes Fear Of CAIR Over Safety Of Americans
Fearing a civil liberties backlash and "bad public relations" for the Obama administration, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson refused in early 2014 to end the secret U.S. policy that prohibited immigration officials from reviewing the social media messages of all foreign citizens applying for U.S. visas, according to a former senior department official.
"During that time period immigration officials were not allowed to use or review social media as part of the screening process," John Cohen, a former acting under-secretary at DHS for intelligence and analysis. Cohen is now a national security consultant for ABC News.

Jeh Johnson, in other words, put the safety of Americans below fear of criticism from CAIR and the ACLU. As a result, a slaughter in San Bernardino took place at the hands of a jihadi bride let into the country thanks to Jeh Johnson.
And by the way, what is it about Johnson’s career as a lawyer (first black partner at white-shoe NY law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, where he handled large commercial litigation) that qualified him as protector of our national security?
