WND reports today on the news former Marine platoon commander, FBI swat team leader, and counterterrorism & Muslim Brotherhood expert John Guandolo broke last week on Tom Trento’s Trentovision show*: that John Brennan, President Obama’s nominee to head the CIA, converted to Islam while CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia.
In John’s analysis, Brennan’s conversion represents the culmination of a campaign against Brennan by a foreign intelligence service. Giving Brennan the most charitable benefit of the doubt, this reveals Brennan’s susceptibility to manipulation. By itself, the secret circumstances of this conversion to the religion that is also the basis for jihad war to entrench the totalitarian legal-political system of sharia should be troubling. But coupled with Brennan’s activities as the president’s top counterterrorism adviser — frequent, close work with Islamic organizations (e.g., ISNA) that operate on behalf of terrorists groups (Hamas, a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood) — Brennan should certainly and without question not be confirmed.
Will our lawmakers, our representatives, our last, best and only hope, act on this information, or even seek an account of his activities from Brennan himself? Last week, no senator put a single question to Brennan regarding his associations with MB groups, his (at best) lame public statements regarding Al Qaeda’s ideology (nothing to do with Islam, in Brennan’s view), or his touting of Hezbollah’s “moderate elements” and “legitimate” mechanisms.
How about giving your rep a call and asking for some answers?
