It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness that I inform you all that Philip Haney was shot and killed in California near where he was living. His body was found yesterday.
Preliminary investigation has ruled Phil’s death a suicide.
The Understanding the Threat (UTT) team mourns Phil’s death and celebrates the life of this great man.
Since 9/11, there have been very few men who have fought as courageously against real threats facing America as Philip Haney.
His work speaks for itself, and was groundbreaking. It is fair to say few had a bigger impact than Phil.
More importantly, Philip Haney was one of the most decent human beings I have ever known. He was a man of deep faith, a rabid patriot, a gentleman, a great investigator, a poet, a songwriter, an entertainer, a philosopher, and an unrelenting force against evil.
Philip Haney’s absence in the counter-jihad creates an un-fillable space. He was a quiet 100,000 ton freighter plowing through the sea undeterred, and leaves behind an example for us all.
It seems to me the best way to honor Philip Haney is to speak truth boldly in love, and stand firm in the face of the evil which persists today. Phil brought light into the darkness because he was following the example of our savior Jesus.
God bless you Phil. Troubadour Warriors until the end.
