John Brennan, who yesterday proposed giving terrorist group Hezbollah MORE power in Lebanon, tells Muslims that ignorance, prejudice, and discrimination, not to mention George W. Bush’s terrible anti-terror policies, profiling, and the Patriot Act are more dangerous to Muslims in America than terrorism.
And let’s not forget about those evil Bible worshippers. John O. Brennan is Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.
UPDATE: Calls to oust Brennan multiply. John McCain on homeland-security adviser: ‘You lost touch with reality.’
The calls for President Obama’s homeland-security adviser John Brennan to step down from his administrative post are multiplying, with Sen. John McCain asserting he’s “lost touch with reality.” “When you impugn people’s patriotism and integrity and make statements that compare people going back into the fight in Afghanistan or Yemen or other places with criminals who go back to a life of crime in the United States, you’ve lost touch with reality,” he said.
The criticism follows Brennan’s recent appearance at a New York University assembly and his comments that having a percentage of terrorists released by the U.S. return to terrorist attacks “isn’t that bad,” since the recidivism rate for inmates in the U.S. prison system is higher.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., previously called for Brennan’s departure.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., added his perspective. “I strongly believe that John Brennan ought to resign immediately or be fired because of his incompetence and inability to do his job,” he told Fox. “Any homeland security adviser who can’t tell the difference between a terrorist and a shoplifter doesn’t belong in office.

Janet Napolitano meets with terrorist group MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD LEADERS
The Muslim Brotherhood is the ideological foundation for today’s terrorist organizations in the Islamic world. Founded in 1928, it is the oldest Islamic fundamentalist political group in modern times. Originally called the Society of the Muslim Brothers, today it is a hardcore supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah and considered the inspirational “father” of al-Qaeda itself.
Last month, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and her senior staff privately metin Washington, D.C., with a select group of Muslim, Arab, and Sikh organizations. Among the mix were three organizations directly associated with an outlawed terrorist entity — the Muslim Brotherhood.
Secretary Napolitano spent an hour and a half briefing them on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) counter-radicalization and anti-terrorist programs. The intensive briefings spanned two days (January 27 and 28) and were called by the DHS.
This meeting was the beginning of an Obama administration program aimed at devising a new information-sharing framework with the Muslim organizations — some of them regarded as extremist because of their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The group is to meet regularly with DHS senior aides and with Napolitano. This program was imported from the United Kingdom. The Obama administration has decided to replicate the UK program to win over Muslims and to get them to collaborate with the federal government.
Although Matthew Chandler, deputy press secretary and spokesman for Secretary Napolitano, refused to comment on the meetings or identify the groups that attended the two-day session, Pajamas Media has learned the identities of a number of the participants and interviewed them — including those linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. The program requires bringing in Muslim groups as “partners” in a two-way information sharing program.
Walid Phares, director of the Future Terrorism Project at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, criticized the partnership concept:
“Through the so-called ‘partnership’ between the Jihadi-sympathizer networks and U.S. bureaucracies, the U.S. government is invaded by militant groups.” He warned that this policy embraced by the Obama administration “is how American national security policy has been influenced” by Muslim groups, who are duping administration officials.
