U.S. policy toward terrorist groups and rogue nations in the Middle East is compromised by relying too much on Muslim advisors who are much more radical than they act as, a former undercover investigator said locally last week.
Chris Gaubatz warned about such “suit-wearing jihadists” as he spoke about his book to GOP groups in Asheville Feb. 12 then Hendersonville a night later.

Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America is the title of the 448-page book in 2009, about his findings from infiltrating radicalized Muslims.
The co-authors are his father David Gaubatz, longtime Air Force counter-intelligence investigative agent and a State Department-trained Arabic linguist, and investigative journalist Paul Sperry. Sperry, a Hoover Institute fellow, is a conservative political commentator. He authored a similar-themed book in ’05, entitled Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington. The ’09 book’s foreword is by U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), who represented Charlotte in 1995-2013.
