Larry Klayman, the former Justice Department lawyer and founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, has filed a civil complaint accusing President Obama and other officials of “facilitating terrorism” by refusing to cut off travel from Africa’s Ebola zones to the U.S.
The complaint filed in federal court in Washington charges Obama and his administration are “knowingly and willfully providing material support and aid to international terrorism and facilitating terrorism by allowing unrestricted entry of persons from countries experiencing outbreaks of the Ebola virus and adamantly opposing efforts, including calls from the U.S. Congress, to restrict travel from outbreak countries.”
The complaint from Klayman, who recently filed legal paperwork to try to get Obama deported, names Obama; Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease; Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control; Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell; and Jeh Johnson, director of the Department of Homeland Security.
Klayman, a longtime foe of the Washington establishment, says the defendants “know or should know … that the probable consequences of their actions are to facilitate the spread of the disease and to provide opportunities for germ warfare terrorism.”
He cites Obama’s criticism from the Senate floor in 2005 of President Bush for his handling of the avian flu.
Obama said the “failure to prepare for emergencies can have devastating consequences.”
“We learned that lesson the hard way after Hurricane Katrina,” the then-senator told his colleagues. “This nation must not be caught off-guard when faced with the prospect of an avian flu pandemic. The consequences are too high. … The question is will we be ready when that happens? Let’s make sure that answer is yes. I urge my colleagues in the Senate and the House to push this administration to take the action needed to prevent a catastrophe that we have not seen during our lifetimes.”
The complaint asks for a jury trial and compensatory and actual damages of at least $75,000, fees and other compensation, as well as an injunction banning travel to the U.S. from infected “African, Muslim and other nations.”
Klayman charges the Obama administration has enacted “ineffective so-called screening” procedures at a handful of American airports.
He calls it “a reckless plan to open the door not just to defendant Obama’s infected fellow Africans, but also American Muslim ISIS suicide terrorists who would intentionally infect themselves with the deadly disease and thus spread it widely in the United States.”
