Editor’s Note – As the chief counterterrorism advisor to President Obama, he has been called an “Arabist“, and has made many controversial statements concerning Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Jihad. He has said that Jihad was a “legitimate tenet of Islam”, has referred to Jerusalem as “Al Quds”, its Arabic variation, and called upon people to stop “bashing Iran”.
Is this the type of person we want running our Central Intelligence Agency? His understanding of Islam reads as if he converted to Islam himself. He is “witless” as many have described him, and the future of the infiltration of our government seems assured if he becomes Director of the CIA. The man simply cannot tell the difference between friends and foes.
He may have spent many years at CIA, but his record is checkered, especially during the Bush Administration, remember the “Orange Terror Alert” of 2003? What did he learn when he was Chief of Station in Riyadh? Is that where he learned the “beauty of Islam”, see the video here.

President Barack Obama today officially nominated counterterrorism adviser John Brennan as director of the Central Intelligence Agency. “People in the White House say [he] is legendary in the White House even for working hard,” said Obama when announcing the nomination, adding that he wasn’t sure if Brennan had slept in four years. However, some experts claim Brennan is not a good choice for such an important national security role.
Brennan, who served a quarter-century with the CIA, has served as Obama’s top counterterrorism aide since 2009. If confirmed, he will fill the post left vacant by David Petraeus, who resigned in November during an extramarital-affair scandal.
“In John Brennan the men and women of the CIA will have the leadership of our nation’s most skilled intelligence professionals,” said Obama. “”That unique combination of smarts and strength that he claims comes from growing up in New Jersey.”
“Mr. Brennan is, at best, willfully blind to the threat posed to homeland and national security of the United States by those who adhere to Shariah law,” said Tom Trento, director of Florida Security Council, who has been critical of Brennan’s service in the Obama White House.
Some of the nation’s top intelligence, military, national security and law enforcement experts once loudly called for Homeland Security Advisor John Brennan to resign from his post or for President Barack Obama to fire Brennan.
During a press conference in September 2010 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on Thursday, respected experts, including officials from the Florida Security Council, told reporters that because of Brennan’s adherence to the politically-correct orthodoxy that permeates the Obama administration the U.S. government is being prevented from identifying, understanding and countering radical Muslims and their threat of imposing Shariah law.
Frank Gaffney, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense during the Reagan administration, and others claim that Shariah is a supremacist, totalitarian legal doctrine that leads to terrorism, torture, abuse of women and young girls, and other horrors.
A major piece of evidence that points to the dangers associated with Brennan’s failure to perform his primary function — to know the enemy and its threat doctrine — came to light when analysts at the Florida Security Council discovered that a known Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history (Holy Land Foundation), Sheik Kifah Mustapha,participated in a six-week-long, government-sponsored “Citizens Academy” hosted by the FBI as part of its outreach to the Muslim community.
During the six-week FBI program, Mustapha – a man tied to an officially designated terrorist organization – was escorted into the top secret National Counterterrorism Center and other secure government facilities, including the FBI National Academy located on the Quantico, Virginia U.S. Marine Base.
Terrorism expert Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, exposed Mustapha’s appointment in Illinois to a post as a State Police chaplain. However, according to Illinois officials, the appointment was revoked in spite of the protests of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
“Mr. Brennan is, at best, willfully blind to the threat posed to the homeland and national security of the United States by those who adhere to shariah. In the wake of this recent episode at the National Counterterrorism Center, in which the FBI gave a guided tour of one of our most sensitive counter-terrorism facilities to a known Hamas operative, it is clear that the cluelessness fostered by Mr. Brennan is causing an empowering of the wrong sorts of Muslims in America – and endangering the American people,” said Gaffney to reporters.
