New Islamic Groups Are Ready To Infiltrate The American Defense Establishment…

The Republican members of the House of Representatives assert that Robert Malley, the U.S. special envoy to Iran, “may have had a compromising tie to the Iranian regime.”

Robert Malley, a fervent Trump opponent who previously worked for the Biden administration, has lost his job. The FBI is looking into whether or not he improperly handled sensitive material.

Malley was suspended without pay and had his security certifications revoked, Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX) informed FOX News on Thursday.

Malley represented the Biden administration in Iran amid talks to revive the nuclear agreement with that country.

Rep. Michael McCaul: “He’s a special envoy for Iran. He is the principal architect, the negotiator on the Iran deal to resurrect the Iran deal. And the concern is that we tried to get him before my committee to testify, to brief us on Iran, and he was basically AWOL. And then we found out that he was suspended without pay because he had problems with his security clearance. He had compromised classified information, we think, with Iran, and now there’s a wider investigation into this. You can’t make this stuff up, Martha. I mean, between that and the $6 billion they’ve pledged to put into Iran, the largest state sponsor of terror, all in the name of getting another JCPOA deal done, it’s not acceptable to House Republicans.

More information about Islamic groups’ penetration into the US Department of Defense has just been made available on Frontline.

Inquiries have been launched against several officials in the Biden administration revealed to have ties to Islamic groups in the aftermath of the October 7th attack in Israel.

Yousra Fazili

The Department of Defense (DoD) is refusing to terminate Yousra Fazili, a senior Pentagon official with strong ties to the Qatari regime which openly funds the Muslim Brotherhood and its subsidiary, Hamas. Qatar, which provides safe haven to Hamas leaders like Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashaal, also sponsors the pro-Hamas news outlet Al Jazeera. Following the October 7th attack in which Hamas operatives massacred 1,400 Israelis and kidnapped 200 as hostages, Qatar said it “holds Israel solely responsible.”

Qatar’s ruling Al-Thani family includes Meshal Bin Hamad Al-Thani, who since 2017 also serves as Qatar’s Ambassador to the US. After Al-Thani’s appointment it was revealed that Qatar was planning a covert influence operation which involved damaging the reputations of government officials who oppose Qatar.

During that time, Al-Thani’s strategic advisor was Yousra Fazili. For over three years, Fazili served Al-Thani by arranging “strategic partnerships.” Shortly after Joe Biden took office, Fazili was suddenly appointed special assistant to the assistant secretary of defense for nuclear, chemical, and biological defense programs at the Pentagon.

Since then Fazili has been promoted twice and now serves as the Pentagon’s chief financial officer and chief of staff to the under secretary of defense for comptroller.

This caught the attention of US Congressman Jack Bergman (R-MI), who raised the alarm about Fazili. In an August letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Bergman requested details about how the Pentagon vetted Fazili and what safeguards, if any, are in place to ensure she does not influence policy related to the Persian Gulf.

Bergman was brushed off with a brief response from Assistant Secretary of Defense for Legislative Affairs Rheanne Wirkkala, who simply told the congressman that Fazili had been vetted “in accordance with all appropriate laws and policies.”

Following this month’s attacks by Hamas, Bergman sent a second letter but received no response at all.

Ariane Tabatabai

Wirkkala has also defended the Pentagon’s decision to employ Assistant Secretary for Special Operations Chief of Staff Ariane Tabatabai, who will keep her top security clearance despite being outed as an operative of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Emails obtained by Semafor last month show that Tabatabai was part of an Iranian influence operation called the Iranian Experts Initiative (IEI). The IEI’s objective was to recruit overseas academics and researchers to help shift policy towards Iran, particularly regarding its nuclear proliferation — an objective considered to have been successful.

Tabatabai was a core member of the IEI, which was overseen by Iran’s Foreign Ministry. She was reportedly in direct contact with senior Iranian officials such as then-Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and a top Foreign Ministry official named Mostafa Zahrani, from whom she requested permission to attend international conferences.

After joining the IEI, Tabatabai began writing articles for mainstream media outlets such as the Atlantic, Washington Post, and New York Times in which she promoted a nuclear deal with Iran. She claimed that Iran was seeking nuclear capabilities not to build nuclear weapons but for “production of radioisotopes for medical purposes” and for “desalination, an energy-intensive process.”

In addition to writing articles, Tabatabai also went on the lecture circuit at various globalist think tanks such as billionaire George Soros’ Center for American Progress and the Council on Foreign Relations, where she advocated for a nuclear deal with Iran.
