Biden’s Intelligence Agencies Focused More on Global Warming as Hamas Prepared Attacks on Israel

A new report suggests that the American intelligence community was focusing more on efforts to combat global warming rather than monitoring terrorist groups around the world, thus missing the crucial final stages of Hamas planning its massive attacks against Israel on October 7th.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, some of the priorities of the Biden Administration’s intelligence agencies included adding a climate scientist to the Intelligence Advisory Board (IAB), as well as signing executive orders that forced the intelligence community to provide assessments of security threats allegedly caused by global warming. Meanwhile, the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas spent at least a full year planning its attack, which killed over 1,400 Israelis.

In January, Biden announced the appointment of the first-ever climate scientist to the IAB: Brown University professor Kim Cobb, who was described as an “expert on climate extremes and coastal flooding.” Cobb was tasked with reviewing “the work of U.S. spy agencies to make sure they are considering threats from all angles,” including making sure “that the intelligence offered to the president is taking into account climate-related security issues.”

Biden’s executive orders, signed shortly after Cobb’s appointment, “required the intelligence community to assess the national security threats posed by climate change.” The Department of Defense (DOD) later confirmed that global warming issues would be considered “a critical national security issue.”

The White House’s obsession with global warming has drawn backlash from Republicans for over-emphasizing a non-existent issue, and has been further scrutinized in the aftermath of the Israel attack.

“The world faces unprecedented threats from Communist China, the Iran regime, and Russia yet the Biden administration is shifting intelligence and defense assets to focus on climate change,” said Congressman Mike Waltz (R-Fla.), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. “Just this past March, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines testified before Congress that climate was an intelligence priority.”

“The blatant political posturing on climate change within our intelligence community endangers the U.S. and our allies by sidelining other threats,” Waltz added.

During a press briefing on October 11th, National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby admitted that the attack’s occurrence was “a massive intelligence failure.”
