If it turns out that Brennan is Moslem, then it’s game over for me. However, I worked for a couple of station chiefs in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, back in the 80s. COS Jeddah is a very prominent and prestigious post in the Agency. Both of the guys I knew worked their way up from the streets to the pinnacle. Even though Brennan is associated with America’s number one domestic enemy, there could certainly be worse choices for DCI.
Brennan refers to Jerusalem as “al Quds”. He also is always supportive of Islam and has said that jihad is a legitimate part of Islam.
Yes, I know that jihad CAN be an inner battle for “religious purity”, but he did NOT qualify his support of jihad by any definition.
There is a reason we pretend there is no Islamic terrorism. It’s now just undefined extremists. Brennan is part of that reason and he is the security advisor to the Precedent.
He is also (as is the Precedent) pushing for the success of the rebels in Syria even though many of them are Muslim Brotherhood and/or al Qaeda. The whole stinking Arab Spring thing is that way.
We are fortunate that some Egyptians are fighting back against the Muslim Brotherhood dictatorship, but Obama—as advised by Brennan—continues to give them billions even as our country is heading for financial devastation.
For me, it’s clearly game over on the question of his ultimate loyalty and it’s not the USA.
