Bye-bye, Brennan (You Dangerous Lunatic)
John Brennan (let's get his full title in here), Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. It's time for this idiot to go. Although if ObamaTeam insists on keeping the guy around, then I guess we will be treated to more of his weakminded, jawdropping public comments about terrorism. And if Obama refuses to distance himself from this assclown, then at some point (like now, as far as I'm concerned), the statements coming out of Brennan's mouth belong as much to Obama as they do to Brennan.
On Saturday, Brennan told an audience at the Islamic Center at New York University that 20% recidivism rate for former Gitmo detainees is not that bad, comparing it to the 50% rate of U.S. prisoners. So evidently Brennan compares a terrorist who wants to blow himself up in an airplane over U.S. soil with someone who holds up a 7-11. Are we clear, Brennan? Crystal.
ObamaTeam had to put a muzzle on Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano for her impolitic public statements about the Underwear Bomber. They need to do more than just put a leash on Brennan. He should be fired. Although would that change anything but the public posture of ObamaTeam about criminalizing terrorism? Almost assuredly not. So maybe this guy ought to stay and keep speaking publicly.
Update. I was curious why John Brennan was speaking at ICNYU (the Islamic Center at New York University). According to the ICNYU website, "the White House" was invited to speak at "A Dialogue on Our Nation's Security" held at NYU. The video is posted on YouTube: "John Brennan Speaks on National Security at NYU."
Brennan thanks Dr. Ingrid Mattson, President of the Islamic Society of North America: "You have been a voice for the tolerance and diversity that defines Islam." Really? Tolerance that defines Islam. Wow. That came at about 00:45 on the video. I didn't go farther than that. Coming from the Deputy National Security Advisor, that's almost criminal stupidity.
