What can you say of a man who’s primary role is to secure the homeland, the US homeland, from enemy threats, but in the end, serves as the enemy’s prime conduit for the subversion of the homeland? Resign you moron, you’ve done enough damage. KGS
At a Washington seminar on “the state of domestic intelligence reform” sponsored by the Bipartisan Policy Center yesterday, three members of the blue-ribbon group known as Team B II challenged prominent members of the U.S. intelligence community (“Team A”). Pointed questions were posed about the Obama administration’s understanding of the threat posed by shariah, the jihad it compels its adherents to pursue – through violent means, where practicable, and stealthy ones where that is not the case – and its outreach to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and groups engaged in the latter. The answers that were, at best, disappointing gobbledygook. Taken together, they confirmed Team B’s charges of official “willful blindness” (at best) in its recent report Shariah: The Threat to America.
Among the participants in this half-day program were Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and FBI Director Robert Mueller. As with virtually all of the rest of a program devoted to “intelligence reform,” their prepared remarks were devoid of references to what is arguably the single most important reform needed at the moment: clarity about the enemy we face and what animates him, namely the politico-military-legal doctrine authorities of Islam call shariah.
The exchanges between Messrs. Clapper and Mueller and Team B II members Diana West, Christine Brim, and Frank Gaffney demonstrated just how far from comprehending the need for such reform, let alone undertaking it, the U.S. government is under its present homeland security management. The latter is led by the President’s Homeland Security Advisor, John Brennan, who reportedly effectively operates as the de facto Director of National Intelligence, as well.
Members of Team B have called for Brennan’s resignation for reasons illuminated in the following responses to questions about the wisdom of “Muslim outreach” programs that involve Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas operatives and the dumbing down of the intelligence community’s threat analysis so as to be “sensitive,” evidently to the information dominance being exercised by such operatives.
