Just hours after National Intelligence Director James Clapper made the shocking statement this morning that the Muslim Brotherhood is a secular organization, his office tried frantically to clarify his remarks.
In a statement to ABC News, Jamie Smith, director of the office of public affairs for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said Clapper was commenting on the political system in Egypt rather than the make up of the group itself:
To clarify Director Clappers point in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood makes efforts to work through a political system that has been, under Mubaraks rule, one that is largely secular in its orientation he is well aware that the Muslim Brotherhood is not a secular organization.
But thats now what he said, and the damage may already be done. Soon after Clapper made the statements, numerous news outlets picked up on the incredible remarks, made at a House Intelligence Committee hearing and contradicted by FBI Director Robert Mueller.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Well that is one way to broach the unbroachable topic — to tell a flat out lie about it that begs correction.
RESIGN Barack Obama...and take the IDIOTS & ENABLERS with you.
“In a statement to ABC News...”
Let me guess, Jake Tapper followed this up.
With WWIII brewing in the ME, we must call DC and demand that morons like this be fired.
On page D17 of your local newspaper.
A German oompah band should fire up every time this moron speaks.
And this guy is the National Intel Director? Our country is in some bad shape.
Clapper is the kind of idiot who populates the Obama Administration’s higher policy offices.
He’s the same loon who was totally unaware of the Muslim attack in London some time ago when questioned by the News.
Its MANIFEST this idiot is totally unqualified for the position he currently holds.
It really boils down to what “secular” means. After all, churches have tax numbers (secular) and physical addresses (secular), as opposed to being “spiritual” entities.
This guy is National Security Director.
Is it just me or are the Obamites unraveling under congressional scrutiny?
With this bunch it is always the first thing they say that is the truth to them.
His “statement” was as likely an accident as it would have been for him to have stated “My mother was a transgendered, calico porcupine” before the same national audience.
There is no cure for the Clapper.
The most incompetent administration in our history may wind up getting us all killed. Can the adults be put back in charge now please?....
This clapper idiot needs arrested. What an incompetent boob.
You want action from a "community organizer"? (See my new tagline.)
Sorry, National “Intelligence” Director.
Yeah, um, I bet they're just a fraternal order, like, uh, like the American Legion! Probably even got posts all over the Middle East where you can drop in and get a falafel with some old cave buddies.
