John Brennan, the President’s top counterterrorism adviser, bizarrely claimed “there are no downsides or upsides” to treating terrorists as enemy combatants. That is absurd. There is a very serious downside to treating them as criminals: terrorists invoke their “right” to remain silent and stop talking. Terrorists don’t tell us where they were trained, what they were trained in, who they were trained by, and who they were trained with. Giving foreign-born, foreign-trained terrorists the right to remain silent does nothing to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats. It only gives our enemies access to courtrooms where they can publicly grandstand, and to defense attorneys who can manipulate the legal process to gain access to classified information.
The first outcry will be that these are unnamed sources, but this is about National Security and as Guandolo points out, there is more than the Saudi government working hard and succeeding with our CIA Station Chief, but that we already know Brennan is a sympathizer and an Islamist working to islamized our country, whether he prays to Mecca or not. Source: Sarah PalinIn the early portion of the 2-1/2 hour video Guandolo makes these three central points (my loose transcript - not word for word, but close).
1. Brennan has interwoven his life, personally and professionally, with individuals we know are terrorists. Has given them access, not only senior leaders inside the government but has given them access to the National Security Council, the National Security Staff, has brought known Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood operatives into known positions in government. He has overseen, approved and encouraged leaders of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood into the government to advise on counterterrorism strategy as well as the over-all "War on Terror."
2. Brennan has proven through his own comments, publicly, that he is clueless and grossly ignorant of al-Qaeda's strategy. He said al-Qaeda is the enemy. We know that is not the total threat. When he discusses al-Qaeda, he doesn't know what he is talking about. He is ignorant of their strategy and how they operate.
3. Many believe most disturbing is his conversion to Islam when he served in an official capacity on behalf of the United States in Saudia Arabia. "That fact alone is not what is most disturbing, and makes him unfit for duty. What makes him unfit for duty is his conversion to Islam was the culmination of a counter-intelligence operation against him, to convert him. The fact that foreign service operatives recruited Mr. Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior government position in a foreign country, means that he is either a traitor, which I'm not saying but that's one of the options, and he did this all willingly and knowingly or he did it unwillingly and unwittingly, which means he is naive, does not understand...he has the inability to discern and understand that environment, which makes him completely unfit to be the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.Whether Brennan was "turned" or converted willingly or didn't convert and/or was not "turned," we have his own public comments. Guandualo's first two reasons above for Brennan's unfitness for National Security is enough and been long known.
Remember that not long after 9/11/01, the Pentagon invited Anwar al-Awlaki to dine, and Capitol Hill invited him to pray, knowing that he had purchased airline tickets for three 9/11 hijackers in July and August before the attacks. Nevertheless, he dined on my dime and prayed publicly for something that in his heart he did not believe.
It would be interesting to know if the current Senate confirmations have referred to his CIA Station Chief status in Saudia Arabia because there are no in-depth reports of that important time in his background. It is mentioned, but barely. The following is the one time I can find that service dated, other than Guandolo also saying it was in the 90s. Brennan has referred to his service numerous times, but always without a date, and used it only to praise Islam. Brennan's bio on WhiteHouse.gov is a blank page. I'm not saying there isn't more out there, I'm just not finding it and that's odd. The Senate should be asking.
Mr. Brennan has had a 25-year career in intelligence, much of the time focused on terrorism. At the time of his appointment in 2009, he had been chief of staff to George J. Tenet, then director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and was the C.I.A.’s station chief in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in the 1990s. Source: New York TimesView just a few bios and articles on Brennan lacking a date for service: here, here, here, here, here, This article in Politico, a "bio and resume," shows Brennan as "CIA deputy Executive Director 2001 - 2003.
Our government is rife with Muslims - no doubt some Islamists. The halls of Capitol Hill escort them as they lobby the Muslim staffers placed throughout the building. Dittos for the Whitehouse and Homeland Security. That we have been infiltrated is not in doubt. And yes, I distrust any Muslim in government service. It's a shame, but I am not ashamed to say it. I know what the Koran says. Whether a Muslim chooses to follow every chapter, verse or the hadiths, is not the issue. The fact that Jihad against infidels disqualifies Muslims for government service. Come here, enjoy this country, have your children here, give them and yourselves a wonderful life, and work in the private sector, not the public sector. What? No cushy government jobs with lifetimes pensions for Muslims, paid by my tax money and yours? Yes, that's my position and I understand that some will be unfairly caught in that safety net...but the Koran is the Koran. It's not my fault.
From my perspective, and in my opinion, if Brennan follows the Koran, he doesn't follow a religion, but a government which is a religion and calls for infidels to die or submit. Everything within Islam is governed by the Koran. We can discuss the talking points of "Jihad is a Holy Struggle," a comment made Brennan, when he clearly states that the "Holy Struggle" does not condone "the killing of innocent men, women and children," but if National Security is any issue at all, it is past time to do what Dr. Benjamin Carson suggested at the National Day of Prayer this week, and trash the politically correct nonsense (transcript).
Another point I need to make here is the woman you hear speaking the video brings up the fact that she cannot find whether or not Brennan is married, and there is some talk that he is gay. Brennan introduced his wife Katy (of quite a number of years if I remember correctly) at the hearing. They have three children. A gay issue was not a part of Guandolo's conversation.
