For reasonable people, the real problem with Obama’s nominee to head the CIA, John Brennan, is that he has been a proponent of torture and the architect of the drone program. For wingnuts, the problem with Brennan is that he’s a terrorist-loving appeaser who just loves Muslims. But now they’re going even further and claiming that Brennan actually is a Muslim.
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.
And I heard that Joseph Farah performed satanic rituals when he was in Israel a few weeks ago. My evidence? He was indeed in Israel a few weeks ago. See, it’s totally proven! (For the record, since I don’t want Farah to send Larry Klayman after me — or do I? That might be fun — this is intended to be a parody of the kind of argument Farah’s “news” outlet finds compelling. I did not actually hear that Farah performed satanic rituals)
