Amid the Administration’s rush to: apologize for and disregard America’s founding principles; financially and militarily support America’s enemies like Hamas and other Muslim Brotherhood entities (read “Egypt”); embrace noxious regimes like Iran; handle the assassination of the U.S. Ambassador in Benghazi in Carteresque fashion; shrink America’s nuclear capabilities as well as the fighting forces of the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps; and host terrorists in the White House while simultaneously allowing known Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood operatives to serve inside DHS, it should be no surprise to readers that President Obama has nominated a John Brennan to be the next Director of Central Intelligence (DCI). Mr. Brennan’s inability to discern friend from foe, his ignorance of our enemies, and his shadowy behavior make him unfit for government service in any national security capacity, specifically as Director of Central Intelligence.
As the senior advisor to the President of the United States for Counterterrorism, John Brennan has maintained close relationships with Islamic organizations in America which operate on behalf of terrorist organizations. Senior Hamas operatives, such as Nihad Awad of the Hamas entity the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and leaders of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood (See Fear the Muslim Brotherhood by Andrew C. McCarthy) have been given access to senior National Security staffs and provided input to U.S. counterterrorism strategies for the White House at the direction of John Brennan.
Mr. Brennan does not keep his support of the Muslim Brotherhood quiet. He has spoken publicly on numerous occasions at Muslim Brotherhood events in his official government capacity. As a matter of record, he has been a keynote speaker at a number of conferences and functions applauding the efforts of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and its leadership:
Evidence presented in a federal court in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial in U.S. history (US v HLFRD, Dallas 2008), and upheld by the appellate court, revealed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a Muslim Brotherhood organization and a financial support entity for Hamas, a designated terrorist organization. Despite this, Mr. Brennan continues to work with ISNA, gives its leaders access to senior government officials, and supports their appointment to key positions inside the U.S. Intelligence Community. The current President of ISNA, Imam Mohamed Magid, sits on the Homeland Security Advisory Committee, which reports directly to Secretary Napolitano. With the support of John Brennan, Imam Magid works with the National Security Council which has publicly applauded this Hamas supporter (Magid) in official government functions. See The Muslim Brotherhood in America: Deputy National Security Advisor McDonough Meets with Hamas Support Entity.
This past summer, Members of Congress led by Congresswoman Bachmann sent letters to the senior Inspectors General in the United States (Department of Justice, Department of Defense, etc.) requesting they investigate the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration of the United States government. When asked about the Congressional request, Mr. Brennan laughed and acted as if the request was absurd despite the mountain of evidence of the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration at the Pentagon, FBI, White House, DHS, CIA, and other key government agencies. Mr. Brennan literally laughed. This reveals his gross ignorance of the problem or that he intends to do nothing about it. He is either ignorant beyond all reasonable belief or grossly (and I argue criminally) negligent.
Mr. Brennan also appears to be ignorant on basic matters concerning Al Qaeda and their global strategy aimed at bringing down the West. Because Mr. Brennan believes Al Qaeda is our primary enemy, he should be well versed in these matters, especially since he worked as an analyst for the CIA, as the head of the Counter Terrorism Center, and as the President’s “Counterterrorism Czar.”
In official press conferences, Brennan has stumbled when asked WHY Al Qaeda does what it does. According him, “Al Qaeda has perverted Islam, and has corrupted the concept of Islam so that they are able to attract these individuals” (e.g. “Underwear Bomber” Abdulmutallab). See video below:
Al Qaeda’s own leaders and strategic documents definitively state Al Qaeda is waging a global war on the West because it is a requirement of Islamic Law (Shariah) to wage Jihad until the world has submitted to Islamic Law (Shariah) and the global Islamic state (Caliphate) is re-established.
