The latest news from John Brennan is that ISIS is on the run, sit back and relax. But before we get to that piece of good news just out, let’s take a look at this rascal and what he is all about. Another desert loving Middle-Eastern educated infiltrators.
Just think about it. That’s all. From part of an earlier post:
Did John Brennan call for Michael Hastings to be tried under the Espionage Act, and did that prove to be too inconvenient for the head spook? Sources close to Hastings state not only that Hastings was investigating Brennan and his rogue CIA agency, but the NSA as well.According to a hacked email from Defense contractor Stratfor that was reported on by San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak, it was former counter terrorism czar and now CIA chief John Brennan—and not Eric Holder’s Department of Justice—who was behind the recently revealed media witch hunt. Per the email, written by none other than Fred Burton, the president of the huge military contractor Stratfor, “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists…”
Brennan, then as now in charge of Obama’s drone assassination program, has targeted American citizens on foreign soil, specifically the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son,Abdulrahman, in Yemen, along with five other Yemeni teenagers.
Now back to the latest via Washington Examiner
CIA director John Brennan on Sunday gave an optimistic assessment of U.S. efforts against the Islamic State, saying that the terrorist group’s expansion has been “blunted.”
“Clearly, ISIS momentum inside of Iraq and Syria has been blunted, and it has been stopped,” Brennan said in an interview with Fox News, using another name by which the Islamic State is known.
“They are not on the march as they were several months ago,” he said. “And so, our working with the Iraqis and the Iraqis now trying to push back against it, it is having some great, I think, progress.”
The U.S. has been engaged in a campaign against the Islamic State using air power and training regional forces to engage Islamic State militants.
Groups affiliated with the Islamic State, however, have branched into North Africa in recent months, and took responsibility for terrorist attacks this week in Yemen and Tunisia.
Brennan acknowledged those gains by the Islamic State, saying that the U.S. “cannot relent” in working with regional partners against the terrorists.
But he defended his past comments in 2012 that the U.S. had Al-Qaida on the run, saying that the Islamic State is a new and separate phenomenon.
“There was no sense that I think either I or the president or others gave to the American people that terrorism was going away,” Brennan said. “But we’ve made great progress against a lot of these groups that had plans in place to carry out attacks.”Keep reading
Just for the record: John Brennan and other stupid things he said
February 11, 2013 — bunkerville |
“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 thatwhatever 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:
Brennandecried 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.”
