John Guandolo is the former FBI agent who broke the story that Obama’s nominee for CIA director, John Brennan, converted to Islam while in Saudi Arabia — which would explain why he is so hospitable to the Muslim Brotherhood. Last Wednesday on my ABN show, I interviewed John Guandolo.
In the aftermath of my interview on the Tom Trento show last week, some in the media seem unable or unwilling to grasp some basic facts about the threat environment in America these days. In response to numerous omissions in the dozens of stories covering my interview stating that John Brennan is “Unfit” to be the next Director of Central Intelligence, please allow me to share facts and evidence with you about our threat landscape.
The largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial in U.S. history was U.S. v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), which was adjudicated in 2008 in Dallas, Texas. HLF and its leadership were found guilty of funneling over $12 million directly to Hamas. At the time it was indicted, HLF was the largest Islamic charity in America. A great deal of evidence entered into the HLF trial came from material uncovered during an FBI raid in Annandale, VA in 2004 where the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America were discovered. These strategic documents, financial documents, audio/video tapes, photos and the like revealed the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategies, plans, tactics, organizations, and leadership in America. Evidence revealed the very first Islamic organization formed in America – the Muslim Students Association (MSA) – was formed in 1963 by the Muslim Brotherhood. Today, there are over 600 MSA chapters across the U.S. From the MSA, the largest and most prominent Islamic organizations in the U.S. were created by the Muslim Brotherhood including the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and others. NAIT holds the title/deeds to many of the Islamic Centers in America today. Hamas is a Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organization, and wherever the MB exists, like in the U.S., the Special Section is always present. The Special Section is the unit within the MB which conducts military operations – what we call “terrorism.”

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.

One of the FBI’s former top experts on Islam has announced that President Obama’s pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, converted to Islam years ago in Saudi Arabia.
As WND has reported, former FBI Islam expert John Guandolo has long warned that the federal government is being infiltrated by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood. But Guandolo now warns that by appointing Brennan to CIA director, Obama has not only chosen a man “naïve” to these infiltrations, but also picked a candidate who is himself a Muslim.
“Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on the behalf of the United States in Saudi Arabia,” Guandolo told interviewer and radio host Tom Trento.
“That fact alone is not what is most disturbing,” Guandolo continued. “His conversion to Islam was the culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him. The fact that foreign intelligence service operatives recruited Mr. Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior U.S. government position in a foreign country means that he either a traitor … [or] he has the inability to discern and understand how to walk in those kinds of environments, which makes him completely unfit to the be the director of Central Intelligence.”
Brennan did indeed serve as CIA station chief in Riyadh in the 1990s and today holds the official title of Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. On Jan. 7, Obama nominated Brennan as the next director of the CIA, though he has yet to be confirmed.
“Are you kidding me?” Trento balked at Guandolo’s allegations. “The head of the CIA is a Muslim? For real? … Are you sure?”
“Yes I am,” Guandolo asserted. “The facts of the matter are confirmed by U.S. government officials who were also in Saudi Arabia at the time that John Brennan was serving there and have direct knowledge. These are men who work in very trusted positions, they were direct witnesses to his growing relationship with the individuals who worked for the Saudi government and others and they witnessed his conversion to Islam.”

John Brennan Speaks on National Security at NYU
By John Guandolo at Breitbart
It has been said that the truth offends those who don’t have it. It would appear Senator John McCain and Speaker John Boehner do not have the truth and the facts showing the danger the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement in America’s government poses today. Americans should be very concerned about this.
In letters dated June 13, 2012, five Members of Congress – Representatives Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Tom Rooney (R-FL), Trent Franks (R-AZ), and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) — requested that Inspector Generals from the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State, as well as the IG from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, investigate the penetration of senior Muslim Brotherhood operatives into our national security decision-making apparatus in America.
This is a reasonable request, since a massive amount of factual evidence exists which specifically identifies individuals and organizations which are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America directly involved in key positions inside our security agencies.
Yet, American political leaders from both parties continue to disparage this request in personal terms, giving clear indication they are completely ignorant of the facts in this matter. The latest blast came from leaders in the GOP, publicly defending a senior advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff to the U.S. Secretary of State, Huma Abedin. This individual’s immediate family founded a Muslim Brotherhood front group which, at a minimum, raises questions about Abedin’s position inside the government. If her parents were in leadership positions in organizations the U.S. government knew were fronts for the KGB or Chinese Intelligence, we would not be having this discussion. But because it is the Muslim Brotherhood, which many American leaders have either coddled, worked with, or ignored, these five Members of Congress who are abiding by their oaths of office and asking for a legitimate investigation into this potentially damaging espionage issue, are being attacked by Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner. Shoot the messenger.
As a point of reference, three years ago Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-NC) called on the Department of Justice to brief all members of Congress on the implications of the US v. Holy Land Foundation trial, which revealed many of the prominent Islamic organization in America today, including the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Jihad here. DOJ never fulfilled this request.
Speaker Boehner said in defense of Abedin, “From everything that I do know of her, she has a sterling character. Accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.” What is actually dangerous is that the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives remains so grossly ignorant about a threat inside our nation nearly eleven years after 9/11.
For his part, Senator McCain came to Abedin’s aide by saying that the comments made about her “rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma’s family.” This necessarily means that Mr. McCain did no study at all of the facts of the matter, because they clearly and specifically reveal the organizations in which her parents and family are involved and their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. He also criticized the Congressional letter for lacking any “instance of an action, a decision or a public position that Huma has taken while at the State Department or as a member of then-Sen. Clinton’s staff that would lend credence to the charge that she is promoting anti-American activities within our government.” This will require a lengthier retort.
Are Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner aware of the following facts?
- The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is the largest Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organization in North America, created to be the “nucleus” for the Islamic Movement, according to MB documents seized by the FBI in Annandale, Virginia in 2004.
- Because of the evidence ISNA is a Brotherhood front, as well as the numerous financial documents detailing money going directly from ISNA and their banks to Hamas entities overseas, ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v. Holy Land Foundation), which was adjudicated in 2008 in Dallas, Texas.
- When ISNA filed a motion with the federal court to have their name removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list, the government stated that ISNA exists to be a financial support entity for Hamas. The federal judge agreed stating the government provided “ample evidence” and left ISNA on the list. A three-judge appellate panel unanimously agreed and left ISNA on the unindicted co-conspirator list.
- ISNA’s two key directors and its President, Mohamed Magid (pictured above), all work with Secretary Clinton and her office. So, the leaders of a Hamas-supporting entity are advising the U.S. Secretary of State.
Huma Abedin is an adviser and Deputy Chief of Staff to the U.S. Secretary of State. She supports the Secretary’s work with ISNA. If Abedin is not aware ISNA is a Hamas support entity, she is incompetent at her job and should be relieved of her duties. If she is aware ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas entity and is not making the Secretary and the other staff aware of this, there is a much greater problem. Since Abedin’s parents co-founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs with backing from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim World League, questions about her loyalty and affiliations are not only proper; they are required as a matter of policy for such a position in our government.
Are Mr. McCain and Speaker Boehner aware that Secretary Clinton’s official position on the so-called “Arab Spring” was that it was a freedom movement led by students who organized on Twitter? How could the U.S. Secretary of State refer to the Muslim Brotherhood’s revolution in the Middle East this way? How could she get this so catastrophically wrong? Perhaps the influence exerted by the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-supporting entity ISNA has something to do with it.
Are Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner aware that ISNA President Mohamed Magid spoke at a Counter-Terrorism training program at CIA Headquarters at Langley last week? Or that ISNA advised Senator Richard Durbin’s Senate committee before his hearings in the summer of 2011? Or that Mohamed Magid was at the last two Iftar Dinners at the White House? Is the Secret Service aware that the leader of a Hamas support entity has been coming into the White House? Or that Mohamed Magid has worked with the National Security Council and sits on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Committee? Are the American people aware that the very agencies legally charged to support and defend the Constitution and this nation are working with the leader of a known Hamas-supporting entity? And ISNA/Magid are only one example of this massive security breach into our system by the Muslim Brotherhood.
There is ample reason for a significant investigation into the penetration of the U.S. government, since one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s most senior leaders has access to our most sensitive intelligence agencies. Perhaps Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner will come out and publicly apologize to Congresswoman Bachmann and the other courageous members of Congress, then share the same outrage they showed these same Congressman by exposing the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration into our national security apparatus.
That would be a step in the right direction.

From fellow counterjihad activist Damon Whitsell:
ABSOLUTELY MUST SEE VIDEOS, PLEASE MAKE VIRAL!!!
On July 24th John Guandolo gave this intelligence briefing on the MB in Georgia. This mini-brief is four hours of a usual 3 day briefing that Guandolo used to give to law enforcement and intelligence officials. Here are Guandolo”s credentials.
About the Presenter — “Counterterrorism expert and former federal agent John Guandolo graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1989, accepting a commission as an Officer in the United States Marines. He served as a combat Infantry Platoon Commander with the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment during Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield and as a Platoon Commander, Assistant Operations Officer, and Airborne and Diving Officer in the 2nd Force Reconnaissance Company between 1991 and 1996. John resigned his commission in the Marines in 1996 and joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the Washington, DC Field Office. He investigated numerous cases while at the FBI, and in addition to serving as Swat Team Leader for the Washington Field Office, was one of the Bureau’s Advanced Capability Medics. While working in the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, John acquired substantial knowledge and expertise in the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Law (a.k.a. shari’ah) and teaching, and the Global Islamic Movement (GIM). His accumulated knowledge on these and related subjects earned him the FBI’s “Subject Matter Expert” (SME)” designation, a role that afforded him the opportunity to design and implement the FBI’s first counter-terrorism training”.
Guandolo has been giving this same presentation, since 2003, to the U.S. intelligence community, before it was ‘outlawed” by our government. He obviously knows this material inside and out. The evidence for MB infiltration into our government is epically overwhelming. Not only that, the evidences of Al Quada and Hamas infiltration are also as overwhelming.
Take for instance Aldurahman Alamoudi and Anwar Alawki. Aldurahman Alamoudi was the top advisor to Bill Clinton on Islam. Alamoudi also started over 20 MB front groups in America, our Military Muslim Chaplin Program and was instrumental in choosing textbooks on Islam in American public schools. It turns out that not only is he MB, he is also Hamas and is in prison now for plotting with Hamas to kill a Saudi Arabian Prince and providing financing to Hamas. Anwar Alawki was the top advisor to George W. Bush on 911 and was the go to guy about policy towards Islam after 911. After many months of advising the administration and even holding prayer events at the U.S. Capitol Building, it was determined that Anwar Alawki was Hamas. Years later Obama would order a drone missile strike to take Anwar Alawki out. And it is almost as bad now as it was then. COULD WE AT LEAST KEEP HAMAS OUT OF OUR GOVERNMENT?
This briefing is also available on an 80 minute DVD entitled,,, “Understanding The Threat To America” at
Here is some description text from that site. “On August 20, 2004, two Baltimore County, MD police officers spotted Selim Elbarasse and his wife videotaping the 4.3-mile-long Chesapeake Bay Bridge. When they reported the sighting to Maryland Transportation Authority (MTA) Police at the toll plaza, officers stopped Elbarasse’s SUV west of the bridge. Police confiscated the camera, and afterward reported having seen the Elbarasses, who were accompanied by two children, attempting to hide the camera. The confiscated video contained close-up footage of Chesapeake Bay Bridge support structures. When officers ran a criminal background check, they discovered that Elbarasse was wanted on an outstanding material witness warrant out of Chicago in a case involving the terrorist group Hamas and Elbarasse was detained.
When agents of the FBI’s Washington, DC Field Office raided Elbarasse’s Annandale, Virginia home and searched his basement, they found a hidden sub-basement containing the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. The seized documents, which revealed a secret Muslim Brotherhood strategy to infiltrate and overthrow the United States Government and replace the Constitution with Islamic Law, were subsequently entered into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing case in US history. Further investigation and discovery confirmed that the Muslim Brotherhood had not only penetrated the Federal Government at the highest levels, but had been running a sophisticated influence operation from within the Federal Bureaucracy for decades. Contrary to sound reason, the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of government and influence in the affairs of state has not decreased, but has grown much worse since.
Understanding the Threat to America lays bare the danger posed by those who masquerade as “moderate Muslims” to gain our trust while they work secretly to overthrow of our way of life; exposes the individual actors, organizational infrastructure, and modus operandi of the “civilizational jihad;” and arms viewers with useful information and practical steps they can take to reverse the “Civilization Jihad” in America.”
The same briefing, given years ago, is also available here
After I watched both presentations of the briefing, I ordered the 80 minute DVD and sent a letter to Guandolo requesting an interview by email and for access to a brochure he mentioned and has produced called The Muslim Brotherhood Handbook.
THIS INTELLIGENCE BRIEF IS SO POWERFUL that I am also buying video editing software to take the different sections of the brief, cut them up, and upload them everywhere I can. And when I get the 80 minute DVD, I will be making it available on ALL my YouTube accounts and I will self host the video on my server if it is taken down from youtube. THE BRIEFING IS THAT GOOD AND NECESSARY.
WE MUST GET THIS INFORMATION INTO THE HANDS OF EVERY AMERICAN!!!

Muslims, backed by a host of Muslim Brotherhood front groups, threatened to protest and shut down this Maryland panel last year. Unlike other venues that have caved in to Islamic thuggery, this one went on and no protesters showed up. The audio crackles, it’s not your speakers.

WASHINGTON — They were the first modern terrorists and the forerunner of al Qaeda. But these days, the Muslim Brotherhood is becoming mainstream not only in Egypt, but in Washington, D.C.
While the final chapter of the so-called Arab Spring has yet to be written, it appears that radical Islamic forces could emerge as the big winners. None more so than the Muslim Brotherhood.
In Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria and Jordan, the Brotherhood has used unrest to increase its influence.
The group is also making inroads closer to home, according to one expert.
“Their goal is primarily deception, manipulation and intelligence gathering,” former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo said.
Guandolo said Brotherhood operatives have infiltrated the halls of power in Washington, D.C.
“What we’re seeing not just inside the White House, but inside the government entities, the national security entities, the State Department — is a strong push by the Muslim Brotherhood to get their people not just into operational positions, but policy positions — deeper, long term, bureaucratic positions,” he told CBN News.
Chief among their operatives is the Islamic Society of North America or ISNA, according to Guandolo.
In 2007, ISNA was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in American history.
Likewise, the FBI has uncovered internal Muslim Brotherhood documents naming ISNA as “one of our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”
Nevertheless, when President Obama wanted a Muslim to pray at his inauguration, his administration turned to ISNA’s then-president Ingrid Mattson.
And at a recent White House Iftar dinner, current ISNA head Mohammed Majid sat just a few feet from the president.
“Moahmmed Majid was sitting at the front table right in front of Barack Obama. But when the official list of White House attendees was published, his name was curiously missing,” said terrorism expert Patrick Poole, a columnist with Pajamasmedia.com.
Another American-Muslim group linked to both the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas is the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR.
The FBI refuses to meet with CAIR over its ties to terrorism.
But top White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett recently praised the group for taking part in an MTV “anti-bullying” campaign.
“The U.S. government knows that these are Muslim Brotherhood operatives because federal government prosecutors have gone into federal court and said that they’re Muslim Brotherhood operatives,” Poole explained.
One such operative is Kifah Mustpaha. In 2010, he was given a tour of both FBI headquarters and the National Counterterrorism Center, despite longstanding ties to the terror group Hamas.
Hamas identifies itself as the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“We know that the Muslim Brotherhood, from their own documents, has said that they want to infiltrate all levels of government and civil society here in America to destroy from within,” Poole said.
The Obama administration seems to see the Brotherhood as an ideal partner for its Muslim outreach policies.
Earlier this year, National Intelligence Director James Clapper drew criticism when he called the group “largely secular.”
“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence,” he said.
Obama administration officials say they are now engaged in dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
That policy apparently extends to the Brotherhood in America as well.
