Besides being a fake terrorist, Shoebat is absolutely of no use to U.S. intelligence in combating terrorism because he does not know what he is talking about and gives misinformation. For instance, Shoebat says that the TSA could have stopped the 9/11 terrorists. Only one problem. The TSA was created after 9/11. Shoebat also does not know the correct number of hijackers. He claims there were only 17 when in reality there were 19. I guess if you trusted Shoebat you would’ve had to rely upon an organization that didn’t exist yet while allowing two of the hijackers to slip away. Great job Mr. Shoebat! You are really helpful and competent in protecting Americans.
Furthermore, Shoebat is wasting U.S. taxpayer money by claiming to be a counterterrorism expert. The Department of Homeland Security spent $40 million on counterterrorism experts and training and who knows how much of that was squandered on this charlatan. Shoebat says that he has an advantage in combating Islamic extremism because he was a former PLO terrorist in Palestine. Yet his cousin Daood Shoebat refutes that claim. Furthermore, the bank he claims to have bombed in Bethlehem called Bank Leumi has no verifiable record of any terrorist incident taking place at its now deconstructed Bethlehem branch.
