Obama adds another weak link to 2nd term team
John Brennan will be nominated today as President Obama’s next director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Brennan currently serves as national security/chief counterterrorism advisor. He has made several appearances on this blog over the years — none of them reassuring. He has downplayed Gitmo recidivism…
Brennan has also echoed Obama’s bleeding-heart rhetoric about murderous jihadists, whom he characterized as “victimized” by social and political forces. He reportedly bungled the Christmas Day underwear bomber case, kept the Director of National Intelligence in the dark about key counterterror arrests in London, and blew smoke about the bin Laden raid.
Oh, and here’s a handy flashback of his CAIR-pandering in 2010 to the infamous flying imams. CAIR, by the way, has been busy pressuring journalists to stop using the word “Islamist.” Wouldn’t be surprised to see this whitewashing administration agree, would you?
...I have never been impressed with this guy. He just does not strike me as smart. He does not seem to understand the enemy or the war he is waging against us. Obama must be trying to set a record for bad appointments to this administration.
