Shock claim: Obama picks Muslim for
Former FBI expert claims John Brennan converted to Islam
Published: 3 hours ago
One of the FBI’s former top experts on Islam has announced that
President Obama’s pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency, John
Brennan, converted to Islam years ago in Saudi Arabia.
As WND has reported, former FBI Islam
expert John Guandolo has long warned that the federal government is
being infiltrated by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood. But
Guandolo now warns that by appointing Brennan to CIA director, Obama has
not only chosen a man “naïve” to these infiltrations, but also picked a
candidate who is himself a Muslim.
“Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when
he served in an official capacity on the behalf of the United States in
Saudi Arabia,” Guandolo told interviewer and radio host Tom Trento.
“That fact alone is not what is most
disturbing,” Guandolo continued. “His conversion to Islam was the
culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit
him. The fact that foreign intelligence service operatives recruited Mr.
Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior U.S. government
position in a foreign country means that he either a traitor … [or] he
has the inability to discern and understand how to walk in those kinds
of environments, which makes him completely unfit to the be the director
of Central Intelligence.”
Brennan did indeed serve as CIA
station chief in Riyadh in the 1990s and today holds the official title
of Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and
Counterterrorism. On Jan. 7, Obama nominated Brennan as the next
director of the CIA, though he has yet to be confirmed.
“Are you kidding me?” Trento balked at
Guandolo’s allegations. “The head of the CIA is a Muslim? For real? …
Are you sure?”
“Yes I am,” Guandolo asserted. “The
facts of the matter are confirmed by U.S. government officials who were
also in Saudi Arabia at the time that John Brennan was serving there and
have direct knowledge. These are men who work in very trusted positions,
they were direct witnesses to his growing relationship with the
individuals who worked for the Saudi government and others and they
witnessed his conversion to Islam.”
A former Marine and combat veteran,
Guandolo worked for eight years in the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division
as a “subject matter expert” in the Muslim Brotherhood and the global
spread of Islamism. Guandolo boasts he created the Bureau’s first
counterterrorism training/education program and twice received United
States Attorney’s Awards for investigative intelligence.
Guandolo is also one of the authors of
the Center for Security Policy’s Team B II report, “Shariah: The Threat

“My contention is that [Brennan] is
wholly unfit for government service in any national security capacity,
and that would specifically make him unfit to be the director of Central
Intelligence,” Guandolo told Trento.
Guandolo then broke down a three-part
argument against Brennan’s confirmation.
“The first is he has interwoven his
life professionally and personally with individuals that we know are
terrorists,” Guandolo asserted. “He has overseen and approved and
encouraged others to bring known leaders of Hamas and the Muslim
Brotherhood into the government in positions to advise the U.S.
government on counterterrorism strategy as well as the overall ‘war on
Second, Guandolo asserted, Brennan has
“proven through his own comments publicly that he is clueless and
grossly ignorant of Al-Qaida’s strategy.
“Third and finally, which some would
say is most disturbing, is Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam,” Guandolo
said, but stressed, “I think the [larger] news is that that conversion
is the culmination of the work of people in Saudi Arabia who worked for
the Saudi Government – and that makes John Brennan just naïve, foolish,
dangerously ignorant and totally unfit for this position.
