  1. Is it too much to ask that msm ‘reporters” do some homework prior to interviews? Good grief. The video is no longer available, but since I had this in cache I took the time to prepare a partial transcript for those that missed it:

    Pentagon Expert known for hard stance on radicals fired: Why? Hannity/Colmes on Fox News

    Sean Hannity: An Islamic expert at the Pentagon known for his hard stance against radical Islam was recently fired and now his colleagues want to know why. Steven Coughlin was fired after a confrontation with one of the Deputy Defense Secretary’s aides which ended with Coughlin being called quote “a Christian zealot
    with a pen”. The word from the Pentagon was that Coughlin was fired for fiscal reasons but supporters of his think that there are ulterior motives behind his dismissal. Joining us now, from InvestigativeProject.org, terrorism expert, Steve Emerson back with us. All right Steve, walk us through what happened here, who he is, where his expertise was, and what you think really went on here.
    Steven Emerson : Steven Coughlin has a background in law and international business and a specialty in academic study of Islamic militant doctrine of jihad. And what he did is to analyze documents, hundreds of thousands of documents were released during the HAMAS trial, the Holy Land case trial in Texas. He did an analysis of some of those documents that were not disputed. It showed that there was a muslim brotherhood plan, a secret plan designed to acquire influence in the US to undermine US democracy and to establish a caliphate. The Muslim brotherhood plan was spelled out in a document that was introduced at trial. Mr. Coughlin wrote a memo spelling out the implications of these documents and the profound nature of what would happen if the United States government decided to start doing dialogue and embracing the very organizations that were intent on undermining US national security.
    Hannity: Was there a point – and this is a point of contention – I know Bill Gertz brought it up in a piece that he put together on this – that he was asked to soften his views on Islamic extremism. In other words, they’re saying its about a fiscal reason for the firing,
    Steven Emerson: That’s a cover. The J2 which is intelligence said he was an em. . .I can tell you this openly right now . . .The J2 which is the intelligence wing of the joint chiefs said he was a political embarassment, and the reason was because he had offended a top aide to the Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England who
    Hannity: Right
    Steven Emerson: his aide, Hesham Islam – I believe is an Islamist with a pro-Muslim Brotherhood bent, who has brought in groups to the pentagon who have been unindicted co-conspirators.
    Hannity: Let me get the broader picture here. So you believe that this guy is a foremost expert on the issue of Islamic extremism in the United States and because he wouldn’t soften his views, change his opinions or his rhetoric, he’s being fired because there are people that are sympathetic . . .you’re making the case to radical Islam within our own government? Am I understanding that right?
    Steven Emerson: Radical Islam, the jihadist global civilizational jihad, that’s the quote from the document released from the trial has emerged under the guise of different organizations that have penetrated the US government. People don’t want to believe it but it’s true.
    Colmes: Hey, uh
    Steven Emerson: and even though these groups claim they’re anti-terrorism, they are not. They have an agenda. They’re subversive.
    Colmes: Steve we have
    Emerson: Alan, let me just finish.
    Colmes: yeah.
    Emerson: The fact is, he didn’t have a hard line. All he did was spell out what the agenda was of these groups, and this particular quote . ..
    Colmes: interrupting (unclear)
    Emerson: And I’d just like to say . . .
    Colmes: Let me, gentlemen, we only have a moment left. We have a Fox News producer at the Pentagon who is reporting that we have spoken with people in the Pentagon who are claiming that the Defense Intelligence Agency , they employ Coughlin through a contract, and it was Rear Admiral Dorset, Director of Intelligence with the Joint Staff who decided not to renew his contract for fiscal purposes and it had nothing to do what so ever with Islam, the person you’re fingering as being responsible for his dismissal.
    Steven Emerson: You know, you want to buy, you want a cover story, that’s the cover story. The reality is a lot different. He was called a Christian extremist, a zealot. He offended Hesham Islam. Offended Gordon England who has appeared before radical islamic groups, such as the Islamic Society of North America. We have video tape of this.
    Colmes: That may be true. But that is not why he was fired. So you’re saying we being lied to by the Pentagon?
    Steven Emerson: His contract was not renewed . . .(overtalk) . . .this is a cover story. The reality is, his contract was not renewed because of the Islamic penetration of the Pentagon. And that’s a sad reality thats affected DHS, FBI
    Colmes: Islamic penetration, are you talking about just one person, or are you saying there is widespread penetration of people who want jihad against the United States . . .working, literally working in the Pentagon.
    Emerson: I say, yes. I am telling you . . .we know that from the trials of former military members who were brought up on charges to carry out jihad.
    Colmes: How can this happen?
    Emerson: So we know that they trained in the military, number one. Number two, the chaplains who serve – the Islamic chaplains who served, were trained by a known terrorist.
    Colmes: And they want to destroy the United States, these people working internally -is like a fifth column in there.
    Emerson: You’ve got it.
    Colmes: ok
    Emerson: In fact there was an operation in the late 1980’s called trojan horse by the FBI
    Colmes: And the governments lying to Fox News about it.
    Emerson: I’m sorry
    Colmes: The government is lying to Fox News about it.
    Emerson: Oh, the government lying to Fox . . .I’m shocked Alan, I mean, suddenly you’re a believer in the government. You always diss the government.
    Colmes: I asked you a question. I don’t always believe the government. Absolutely not. The same government (gets garbled as all three speak over each other. The same government that got us into the Iraq war.
    Emerson: Alan, I’m telling you the truth here.
    Hannity: We’re out of time guys. Thank you very much. Stay with us . . .

    Interesting that the FOX producer provided the excuse ” they employ Coughlin through a contract,”

    Well guess what . . .Gordon England is also a contractor – not military.


    This has more information than his official biography on the DoD website. Gordon England was never in the military and had been a defense contractor his whole career.

    FIRE both Gordon England and his trusted Hesham Islam as well! And while they are at it – file charges for treason!

  2. Joseph Mc Carthy was ridiculed and vilified in his time for his commie hunting. Decades later, after the USSR fell and the archives opened it showed he wasn’t such a crackpot after all. We need a Mc Carthy to dig out these Koranist worms today because this infestation is even worse than the Red one in the 1950″s.
