FBI Denies Existence of Its Own Counter-Terror Lexicon

The most recent salvo of the Obama administration’s ongoing Islamophobia witchhunt is courtesy of the FBI.
Last night, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX01) gave a floor speech where he discussed the “disappearing language” since the 9/11 Commission Report, which was replete with hundreds of references to “Islam”, “jihad”, “Muslim”, etc., to the complete disappearance of such terms altogether in the 2009 FBI Counterterrorism Analytical Lexicon and the 2009 National Security Strategy documents.
Here is Gohmert’s speech, with his discussion of the disappearing language beginning around the 30 minute mark:
And here is the comparative chart he used in his floor speech:
I’m told by a staffer for a House Judiciary Committee member that a senior FBI official contends that the FBI’s Counterterrorism Analytical Lexicon represented in the graphic used by Gohmert and linked below doesn’t exist.
Well, here’s the entire 14 page lexicon, published by the FBI on January 28, 2008 (I obtained this copy on Cryptome):
The amazing thing is that published copies of the FBI lexicon exist and were distributed to all FBI field offices. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security references this allegedly non-existent FBI lexicon twice in its own departmental lexicon (the existence of which I broke here exclusively at PJ Media back in February).
As the fetid fever swamp of the Potomac increases the heat in Washington D.C. in the coming summer months, expect more episodes of outrage as the Obama administration continues its Islamophobia witchhunt.
