CIA Director John Brennan Lied to You and to the Senate. Fire Him
The Guardian ^ | Thursday 31 July 2014

Private apologies are not enough for a defender of torture, the architect of America’s drone program and the most talented liar in Washington. The nation’s top spy needs to go

As reports emerged Thursday that an internal investigation by the Central Intelligence Agency’s inspector general found that the CIA “improperly” spied on US Senate staffers when researching the CIA’s dark history of torture, it was hard to conclude anything but the obvious: John Brennan blatantly lied to the American public. Again.

“The facts will come out,” Brennan told NBC News in March after Senator Dianne Feinstein issued a blistering condemnation of the CIA on the Senate floor, accusing his agency of hacking into the computers used by her intelligence committee’s staffers. “Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on [the committee] or the Senate,” he said.

After the CIA inspector general’s report completely contradicted Brennan’s statements, it now appears Brennan was forced to privately apologize to intelligence committee chairs in a “tense” meeting earlier this week. Other Senators on Thursday pushed for Brennan to publicly apologize and called for an independent investigation. Sen. Ron Wyden said it well:

Unless of course Bill Clinton is in town.

Director of National Security, Secretary of State, Vice President (Joe is due to have an accident sooner or later) or something at the UN or World Bank.

Obama doesn’t fire anybody; he likes his ass-kissers.

Other than the VA chief....I can’t think of anyone “fired” during this administration. It’s kinda odd....Clinton fired several folks in his administration...Bush fired a couple.

*********************************
As usual, that rag ‘The Guardian’ can’t print the truth.

Waterboarding isn’t torture; it’s doubtful that Brennan designed the US drone program; and, Obama is the most talented and prolific liar in the US.

I have always considered that man Brennan as being devious, duplicitous and very dangerous to American freedom. Those qualities, plus a slick knowledge of the law and how to spy on one’s own countrymen is probably why he got hired in the first place. I recall watching him speak in arabic to a group of muslims. Reading vocal tone and body language, he was clearly being derisive about the way most Americans think. His muslim audience broke into sustained laughter. He is one of them i think. It’s not illegal to be muslim, I am talking about one of the radical strains that is devoted to destroying our way of life here.

When Brennan lied to Congress about spying on citizens, we heard very little from the liberals.

Now that Brennan lies about spying on congressmen, two liberals are in an uproar.

Elitism on display, folks!

“Like Holder, John Brennan has the goods on obammy and thus obammy will do squat to reign in either of these criminals”

Take it or leave it! The NSA, CIA, IRS, Homeland Security, FBI and a whole host of other violators of our Constitutional rights have the “goods” on every politician (and prospective politician) in our country......and those politicians know it.

And....with that in mind, most politicians have some “dirt” in their backgrounds that can be “mined” and exposed by these agencies at the whim of the heads of government.

That is the reason that our politicians on both sides of the isle simply will not do the will of the people. They know that these agencies will leak information on them and their hopes and dreams of becoming rich and famous will be in jeopardy.

Firing him is not enough...anybody in the chain down to and including the one pushing the buttons should be in jail. That’s the inky way to cut out the cancer in this organization.

No, Brennan is not a Muslim "like Obama".

Brennan does not practice taqiyya, he's quite open about his obedience to Allah.

Well, you are certainly correct there. Obama practices taqiyyah even when he doesn't need to.

But both provide plenty of evidence as to their muslim faith.
