(Salon) – A former FBI agent and current anti-Islam activist believes that John Brennan, President Obama’s pick to head the CIA, is secretly a Muslim and therefore “unfit for duty” in the government.
On Friday, John Guandolo, the vice president of the Virginia-based Strategic Engagement Group (SEG), appeared on the Boca Raton-based radio show of Tom Trento, the president of the anti-”Shariah Islam” group The United West, formerly the Florida Security Council. Guandolo described how Brennan has supposedly “interwoven his life professionally and personally with individuals that we know are terrorists and he has given them access” to top officials in the federal government and “brought known Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood leaders into the government and into advisory positions.”
Guandolo continued that what “some would say is most disturbing, Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on behalf of the United States when he served in Saudi Arabia” and it “was the culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him” by foreign operatives.
In an email to supporters, Trento hyped the interview, referencing the “very brave Michele Bachmann” who recently accused Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Trento continued with the caveat that the “organized left” will probably say things like “Trento & Guandolo are Islamophobic haters who have no credibility” and “Show me proof, I mean real proof, not just overwhelming circumstantial evidence” and “Big deal so the head of the CIA is a Muslim, who cares?” Trento offers a response to one of those statements: “We care – because Islam, by DEFINITION, is BOTH a religion and a POLITICAL system. Moreover, by DOCTRINE, full allegiance to the political mandate of Islam (world domination) SUPERCEDES allegiance to anything else, including the United States of America!”
