Brennan: Cheney may be 'ignorant' of terror facts
President Barack Obama's top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, said Sunday that former Vice President Dick Cheney's criticism of the Obama administration's approach to the Christmas Day terror attempt is misinformed or intentionally false.
"I'm disappointed. The vice president or others are either willfully mischaracterizing President Obama's actions or are ignorant of the facts," Brennan said on "Fox News Sunday." "I'm neither Republican nor Democrat. I've worked for five previous administrations.....[Obama] says we're at war with Al Qaeda. We're going to destroy Al Qaeda."
The ONLY ones that have shown Ignorance, naivte, outright incompetence is Brennan and his keystone cops of the Zero admin.
“May be”? No 100% certainty here, idiot?
What the heck is with all the uncertainty of this jack squat idiot-filled administration?
Brennan, get your crap together and do your frakin job instead of defending the failures of this lametard administration, opps, which you are apart of.
John Brennan is typical of the Obamanation Syndrome. CYA for everybody in administration. Napolitano was just a whoopsie, no foul. This guy makes me sick to know he is Deputy Chief of Intelligence or whatever. Fox should have given a Barf alert up front.
"Just 27% now say that the United States is safer today than it was before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. However, 47% say it is not, That latter figure marks a nine-point jump from earlier in the month and is the highest negative finding on the question since Rasmussen Reports began surveying on it in 2002."
That statement almost made me spit on my keyboard.
Uh Huh. Cheney is ignorant of terrorism issues. Uh Huh. I suspect this is precisely the effect Brennan wanted.
As Ann Coulter opined, liberal love to tell lies, just for the sheer joy of seeing how much they can get away with.
Of course, it brings to mind that old adage: “If you want to piss off a conservative, tell them a lie. If you want to piss off a liberal, tell them the truth.”
Errr, Mr. Brennan, didn't he say that after Mr. Cheney spoke up?
Could it be that the former Vice-President was urging the President to actually say such words?
It means he's a liberal.
You have way too much time on you hands Cindy d;^)
“Democrats’ worst nightmare: Terrorism on their watch”

SNIPPET: “From the time he launched his campaign for president three years ago, Barack Obama had to consider how he would react to the first serious act of terrorism during the campaign, or if he won, on his watch. His fellow Democrats had been thinking about the moment even longer - since the September day in 2001 when attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon defined George W. Bushs presidency and gave Republicans a decisive advantage on a defining political issue.
And yet the White Houses response to last weeks attempt to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit could rank as one of the low points of the new presidents first year. Over the course of five days, Obamas Obama reaction ranged from low-keyed to reassuring to, finally, a vow to find out what went wrong. The episode was a baffling, unforced error in presidential symbolism, hardly a small part of the presidency, and the moment at which yet another of the old political maxims that Obama had sought to transcend the Democrats vulnerability on national security reasserted itself.”
It is the staggering political incompetence of running a campaign against someone who isn’t running for anything that astonishes me.
The idiot who claimed there was no smoking gun?
I take it that the Obamabots prefer to pass on the “gun” and wait for the “smoking jet liner” until they take something seriously?
Now he’s barking at Cheney, so to take a worn out cliche from sports - “Brennan could hold Cheney’s jock!”
I suggest that this low-life take on a more worthy adversary next time, say Mickey Mouse?
Even though Bush made a mistake by sending them back ,Obama is willfully doing the same thing. What a mess.
I think Cheney’s got a pretty good idea of what’s going on. When the big eared Muslim president plays golf for three days after a near disaster over Detroit, who’re you gonna believe ?
I’ll trust Cheney over islamobama.
Cheney has been active in 2 administrations. He knows more than the current court jesters and jokers. Cheney has experience. These guys have hope and change.
So who are we to believe. The LIARS in office or the patriots who did everything in their power to keep us safe.
What a difficult choice.
Gee, I thought Brennan was supposed to prevent attacks. I guess not.
Umar did everything but put on a big red neon sign with an arrow pointing to himself. The Kenyan was asleep at the switch.
criticism of the Obama administration’s approach to the Christmas Day terror attempt is misinformed or intentionally false.
And Democrats criticism of the Bush administration’s approach to terror was informed???
ROTFLMAO on that statement. Who do these people think they are fooling?
“THE SUN.co.uk: “25 BRITS IN JET BOMB PLOTS Cops fear that 25 British-born Muslims are plotting to bomb airliners.”
If it were an American media outlet it would be “25 youths.”
If it wasn’t Chaney, they would find someone else to Blame.
As long as we understand they will NEVER accept responsibility for anything all adhominen attacks are explained.
It just keeps getting better and better.
Obama the Chicago Clown should stay in Hawaii and keep blaming Bush while the DC village idiots keep running their mouths.
“It means he’s a liberal.”
Agreed. One of those “Professional Bureaucrats” I keep harping about in my incessant rants.
Your president and his handlers don’t give a dammm about our national security. They admire and worships dictators and terrorists. They WANT the US to be destoryed so they can set up their socialist utopia. Those are the facts, jack....quit trying to excuse your boss’ incompetence by lashing out at his critics. I’d say Mr. Cheney knows a helluva lot more about terrorism than you and your boss do.
OOPS! I meant to say “Professional LIBERAL Bureaucrats”....
All the pretty words that followed are full of nothing and the enemy knows it. Yemen & Guantanamo & the USS Cole should manage to keep Obama awake.
I’d love to hear from George W. on this fiasco of an administration. I realize the media would crucify him, but then again the media still has pipe fitting lips for obammma
Brennan said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I’m neither Republican nor Democrat. yea I believe ya...you betcha you a LIB!
naw she using her freedom of keyboard befoe obozo takes it away ><>
“I didn't know”
“But he said...”
“If we had only listened”
“Cheney was right”
By then, it will be too late. And if they think those left behind will be forgiving and reassure them that we know they were duped, they are sorely mistaken.
Hm. I know what you mean. When you, I, and people like us speak the truth, it is regarded as a rant.
Well, if telling the truth is a rant, then...let’s rant on...:)
I am telling you Joseph Goebels would be really proud of these asshats... They all think they are Obi wan kenobi “we did not make any mistakes with the intelligence”, mainstream media”they didnt make any mistakes... It is a crazy world we are living in...
Cheney speaks and the left goes bonkers. I love it.
Excuse me while I step away for a long laugh. LOL
LOL! Oh, THAT’S rich!
Usually when someone says they are neither republican or democrat you can bet they are for sure a liberal and almost always a lying democrat.
He contributed $2,300 to the Obama campaign.
Look at Cheney’s resume and compare it to BO’s. That’s all you need to know. Cheney, someone that has decades of service at the highest level of government and security areas of the US. BO a two bit community organizer that’s probably not even a US citizen.
He is better off staying out of it.Odumbo and his minions are making fools of themselves without his help
If Cheney was wrong the Obama regime would have ignored him.
Instead the Obama Thugs immediately attacked Cheney because they knew Cheney was speaking the truth and the American Public agreed with what Cheney was saying.
Great post. I don’t know what Washington is doing but it isn’t much. You have all this information and they can’t run the Underwear Bomber’s name through a computer database?
He couldn't hold Cheney's jock ... Cheney's got a bigger pair than Brennan and all the rest of them put together. We need him so badly -- just wish his health would permit him to run in 2012.
Cheney has forgotten more about the WOT than Brennen or anyone in the 0bama administration will ever know. What a douche.
Cheney should find Brennan and tell him the same thing he told Leaky Leahey, “Go F yourself.”
