Daniel Rosen, a senior State Department official in charge of federal counterterrorism programs was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly soliciting sex from a minor.
What are these scumbags doing in the Administration and how did they pass a background check?
Rosen, who is the director of counterterrorism programs and policy at the State Department, was arrested and transported to the D.C. jail and charged with one count of Use of a Communications Device to Solicit a Juvenile.
Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said late Tuesday, “We are aware that a State Department employee has been arrested and charges have been issued. “For issues related to Department personnel and for privacy reasons, we are not able to confirm the identity of the individual or specific charges.
“His security clearance will be suspended and he will be put on administrative leave while this proceeds to its end through any judicial process. We are following standard procedure in this case.” Born in May 1970, Rosen is a resident of the District of Columbia. His LinkedIn page states that he has occupied his present position at the State Department since August 2008.
In a speech in Feb. 2012 at a seminar hosted by The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies’ International Center for Terrorism Studies, Rosen, while discussing terrorism, talked about the lure of young people into extremism. “It’s not about public diplomacy, it’s not about improving the U.S. image,” he said. “It’s about reaching out to a pretty well-defined and pretty narrow audience, and that’s people that could be persuaded into crossing the boundaries between sympathy and action.”
Great. Just the guy I want in charge of keeping the rest of us safe. You can’t even let your kid around him..
