John Brennan and the Politics of Capitulation
FrontPage Magazine ^ | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 02/18/2010 2:56:09 AM PST by Michael van der Galien

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.

In coordination with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Shahin and his radical delegation attempted to shake down the airline with a discrimination lawsuit and bully the citizen “John Does” who flagged the imams’ security-undermining behavior. CAIR mouthpiece Ibrahim Hooper blasted “anti-Muslim hysteria” by those who saw something and said something about the imams’ in-flight shenanigans. Shahin ranted in a teleconference strategy session in 2007 that, indeed, he and his cohorts were spoiling for the incident and planning to engineer “many, many cases” to sabotage airline security efforts.

Why are we inviting our enemies to brainstorming sessions on security. They may not have had bombs in their undies but they were openly flouting the system for fun and profit.

Because of the left’s “Feel good” approach to everything and their obsession with “inclusion.”

I also think that they want a major attack as an excuse to seize control of government and pass legislation that ordinarily even Democrats couldn’t stomach.

Perhaps this is why Bayh and others and distancing themselves from the process. They got wind of Obama’s secret plans for a takeover of American government.

Stay away from the links in the first couple of comments to the article at the source. They contain spyware.

Heard this morning that O wants NASA to work with Indonesia to bring them into the space age.

Building rockets that could annihilate Israel?
