CAIR Stalks UCF Professor

20131008_CAIRsamanthabowdenby ALAN KORNMAN:

On October 1, 2013 The Council On American Islamic Relation’s Samantha Bowden drove 85 miles from her home in the Tampa, FL area to the University of Central Florida.  Ms Bowden’s objective was to stalk Professor Jonathan Matusitz during one of his classes.

Upon being interviewed the next day, Samantha Bowden admitted to have intruded Dr. Matusitz’s classroom.  Ms. Bowden is currently under police investigation.

A police report was filed against Ms. Bowden because  Section 228.091, FL. Statute., enacted by Ch. 68-3  addresses specific violations on non-university persons accessing instructional areas of State Institutions without proper permissions.

The University of Central Florida regulations mirrors the relevant Florida Statutes,

(5)  Only students registered for a class may be in attendance in instructional areas unless permission of the instructor is given. The instructor as the designee of the Vice President for Administration and Finance is authorized to warn non-students that they are trespassing and must leave the area of instruction or be arrested for trespass. Any such incident will be reported to the University Police. Non-university persons are not allowed in classroom buildings unless present on authorized university business.

To follow is Dr. Matusitz’s account of the CAIR stalking incident on 10/1/2013.

“On October 1st, 2013, in my 12:00 p.m.-1:15 p.m. class (Communication Building, room 111).  As I started teaching my class, I noticed that a female stranger was sitting at the back of the classroom. That person never asked me if she could enter my class and sit in the back of the classroom.

When I approached her, that person introduced herself as Samantha. Because Samantha is not one of my students, I asked her to leave.  In the beginning, she was insisting to stay in my class. I had to ask her a few times before she finally left.

A few minutes after she left, I recognized that “Samantha.” Her full name is Samantha Bowden, Communication and Outreach Director of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (see website below). She is based in Tampa. She is not a UCF student and never was a UCF student.

Now, a question looms large: Why is a high-profile CAIR representative stalking me in one of my classes? Indeed, Samantha Bowden entered my class without asking me and without obtaining any authorization.

Samantha’s presence and observation of my class on October 1st, 2013 were violations of Florida Statutes. I felt threatened by her actions. So, I filed a report with the UCF Police Department.”

If Samantha Bowden should stalk Dr. Matusitz again on the UCF campus, she will be arrested “without further warning pursuant to law.

Samantha Bowden and Hassan Shibly Should Be Fired

The Council On American Islamic Relations bills itself as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) civil rights organization.  CAIR-FL Director Hassan Shibly must have known his employee Samantha Bowden would be targeting and violating the civil rights of Dr. Matusitz at his place of employment by entering restricted areas violating Florida Statutes and UCF Regulations.   If Hassan Shibly did not know Ms. Bowden would be stalking Dr. Matusitz ,he has an obligation to fire Samantha Bowden immediately for her actionable behaviors.

Shibly and Bowden have been conducting a five-month-long smear campaign against Dr. Matusitz which has been embarrassingly unsuccessful.  Frustrated by their repeated failures, CAIR-FL could possibly have concluded its only option left was to illegally enter Dr. Matusitz’s private classroom for purposes only known to them.

Watch this VIDEO where Samantha Bowden is asked specifically about stalking Professor Matusitz.  This VIDEO footage was filmed at a UCF Muslim Student Association (MSA) rally targeting Professor Matusitz one day after Ms. Bowden was caught stalking the Professor.

Petraeus Scandal Highlights Dangerous Weakness in U.S. Counterintelligence

 by John Guandolo

I travel across America teaching and briefing on the threat from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement here and how they (and others) have insinuated themselves at the highest levels of our government and national security apparatus. The one question I most frequently get from Members of Congress, local/state/federal law enforcement, military and intelligence professionals, state legislators, and citizens is this:  How is it possible that the enemy has gained access to our senior leadership without any apparent resistance?  I believe the current scandal involving General Petraeus is instructive in answering this question.

Our greatest national security weakness from a leadership standpoint is the staggeringly unprofessional inability of U.S. leaders to discern between friend and foe. They simply appear to have no radar for an enemy who comes at them wearing a suit (or dress) and a smile.

At the center of the Petraeus scandal is a young attractive woman named Jill Kelley, whose complaints brought General Petraeus’ affair with Paula Broadwell to light.  Kelley, whose maiden name is Jill Khawam, is of Lebanese decent and her family arrived in the United States in the 1970’s.  She is the 37 year old wife of an oncologist in the Tampa, Florida area.  The U.S. military has described her as an “unpaid social liaison” – whatever that is.  Most importantly, through her social activities surrounding the military Jill Kelley managed to gain access to a large number of U.S. 4-star generals and admirals, many of whom have attended functions in her home.  And, according to sources, no one inside the military intelligence community has conducted any type of investigation into Mrs. Kelley’s background.  This raises serious counter-intelligence questions.

One must assume that all it takes to get close to senior American officials is to appear to be friendly and helpful, and you are in the door.  No need to look at any background information, facts or evidence.  Just take their word for it.  It works for the Muslim Brotherhood, so why not in other areas.

What is astonishing, is that at no point is there any indication, neither publicly or according to sources close to this issue, that anyone asked the right question.  Who is this woman?  What are her true intentions?

The U.S. Central Command responded to their own relationship with Jill Kelley by issuing a statement which included the following:  Jill Kelley held “no official position with the U.S. Central Command.  She is a volunteer and a private citizen, not an employee.”  This is true.  However, what Jill Kelley did have was influence.  She appears to be the kind of woman who can pick up a phone to any one of a number of 4-star generals, base commanders or the FBI, and get a response.  From an intelligence and counter-intelligence perspective, Mrs. Kelley bears many red flags of an intelligence officer, and her activities look an awful lot like a successful intelligence gathering operation.

To be clear, at this point in time, we cannot say – and I don’t believe – Jill Kelley is working on behalf of a foreign intelligence agency.  This may all simply be an unsavory affair gone public.  However, if she were working for a hostile foreign government, she would be given an award for her ability to be welcomed into the senior levels of the U.S. military without even a second look.  “Just look good, sound good, and tell them you want to do good, and the Americans will believe you.”  Words similar to these come right out of the playbooks of the Soviets, the Muslim Brotherhood, and many others.

Does America still have a counter-intelligence apparatus?  If so, it appears to be non-functional above the GS-14 paygrade.

Here are the questions Americans should be asking themselves and their elected officials:  1) How is someone like Jill Kelley able to get very close to and have relationships with so many senior American military officers without a formal vetting process or investigation?  (2) Is their formal and detailed counter-intelligence training for American civilian and military leaders which trains them to be aware of, identify, and report attempted penetrations and recruitments by foreign intelligence services?  (hint: the answer is no – a one hour online course every three years doesn’t count); (3) Do the standard procedures for vetting government employees and contractors for security clearances readily highlight counter-intelligence threats? (hint: the answer is no).
