Mohamed Elibiary, who was appointed to the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council by former Secretary Janet Napolitano in 2010, tweeted Sept. 12 that he has been reappointed to the position and promoted.
Just one year after he was first appointed to the council, PJ Media reported, “Elibiary may have been given access to a sensitive database of state and local intelligence reports, and then allegedly shopped some of those materials to a media outlet. He allegedly used the documents to claim the [Texas Department of Public safety] was promoting ‘Islamophobia.’”
According to the report, a “left-leaning media outlet” confirmed that Elibiary had provided “reports marked FOUO [For Official Use Only],” claiming it was proof of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s “Islamophobia.”
PJ Media added, Texas DPS Director Steve McCraw “confirmed that Elibiary has access to the Homeland Security State and Local Intelligence Community of Interest (HS SLIC) database, which contains hundreds of thousands of intelligence reports and products that are intended for intelligence sharing between law enforcement agencies.”
