John Brennan and other stupid things he said

Apparently I had my knickers in a knot several years ago regarding Brennan. I caught some of my “older” posts on John Brennan. I didn’t have much regard then, and even less now. As good as the hearings were on Benghazi, the Senators were ill prepared for this dude. He smoked rings around them, and was never called on his earlier statements and his apparent enthusiasm for Islam. And we want this guy to head intelligence? Apparently his early years spent in Egypt did as much for him as did Iranian born Valerie Jarrett  living in Iran.

First  John Brennan talks about his favorite city “al-Quds” and praises the Middle East for the freedom to practice your faith(?)


“I did spend time with classmates at the American University in Cairo in the 1970’s. And, time spent with classmates from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine from around the world who taught me that whatever our differences in nationality, or race, or religion, or language, there are certain aspirations that we all share. To get an education. To provide for our family. To practice our faith freely (huh?). To live in peace and security. And in a 25 year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East… In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques at Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage. And, in all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”

Other stupid things Brennan said:

Brennan decried the “ignorant feelings” of Americans outraged at the jihadi attacks on American soil. And then he told Shahin and the audience of Muslim students that he “was very concerned after the attack in Fort Hood as well as the December 25 attack that all of sudden there were people who went back into this fearful position that lashed out not thinking through what was reasonable and appropriate.”

It’s bad enough that John Brennan, President Obama’s national security deputy, thinks Gitmo jihadi recidivism is “not that bad.” But in his talk last week with Islamic law students at New York University, Brennan made even more reckless comments about our counterterrorism programs while pandering to one of the worst Muslim grievance-mongers and sharia peddlers in America.

During the question-and-answer session, Brennan welcomed a question from Omar Shahin. He identified himself as the head of the “North American Imams Federation.” What he didn’t mention was his role as the chief ringleader of the infamous flying imams. You remember them: They were the six Muslim clerics whose suspicious behavior — provocatively shouting “Allahu Akbar!” before boarding the plane, fanning out in the cabin before take-off, refusing to sit in their assigned seats, requesting seat-belt extenders, which they placed on the floor — led to their removal by a U.S. Airways crew in 2006.

As head of the Islamic Center of Tucson in Arizona (home to past jihadi dry-run plotters), Shahin preached that his followers must put Islamic sharia law above Western laws. He told the Arizona Republic that he doubted Muslims were behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks, concluding: “All of these, they make it up.” Brennan didn’t appear to know who Shahin was. Somebody around him should have briefed him. Shahin’s involvement in Hamas-linked charities and radical Wahhabi “youth groups” has earned the Jordanian-born naturalized citizen increased FBI scrutiny over the years. More from Michelle Malkin.

  2. Steve Dennis Says:

    Between Brennan and Hagel we are beginning to see the true radical Obama agenda concerning the middle east and we should all be worried.


    • bunkerville Says:

      Yes indeed. He will do all he can to destroy the GOP so he can gain control of the House next time around. That done, we are indeed toast. Hanging by a thread indeed. Kerry is not great shake either.


    • bunkerville Says:

      Wow. Even during the hearing, Feinstein warned that it was a concerning road the CIA was taking. It was taking on more of the Dept of Defense-military action whereby there could be no oversight. In addition, this should not be a politcal appointment and was always up until now that way. She knows a lot more that she is not or will not tell us. I will try and find her clip.


  3. Always On Watch Says:

    Brennan as the head of the CIA is unacceptable. Period.

    Obama clearly is unleashed now that he’s been elected to a second term. Now we will see what he really is. God help us! 😦


    • bunkerville Says:

      And more replacements coming. It wont matter though, his mission is his mission. Kerry? Hegel? This turkey? wow. hope you can sell your house. I want to sell mine this spring while I can still get out.

    “… 3 great faiths come together.” based and seeped in what?
    Psalms 2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
    Until then, ignorance is called intelligence, and the awaited imam will arise as their world leader (notice he has to ‘rise up and out’ of the earth – not coming in the clouds of Glory!


    • bunkerville Says:

      He sure does not sound like a Christian does he? What version of the bible are you quoting?


      • Designs by Dianne Says:

        King James Version
        I’ve been made aware that it’s most reliable – And, as we know, the misuse and twisting of God’s Word goes back to the Garden – “… for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. ” -VS- “Ye shall not surely die:”… ya right.
        We get upset when we’re mis-quoted or mis-represented ~ we’re not as ‘long suffering/patient/understanding” as God! who sees the beginning from the end!


  5. Asylum Watch Says:

    Brene fits in perfectly with Obama and the rest of his Muslim loving administration. Jihad is the way, after all.

    Will Americans ever wake-up?


    • bunkerville Says:

      This guy and his past will be a total menace. One of the worst that will make our intelligence a nother arm of the political machine.
