John Brennan CIA nomination moved forward
BBC ^ | 5 March 2013 Last updated at 15:53 ET | BBC

Posted on 03/05/2013 4:17:16 PM PST by haffast

A US Senate committee has approved President Barack Obama's nomination of John Brennan to be CIA director.

The panel acted after the White House supplied secret legal memos about the use of drones to kill American citizens abroad in anti-militant operations.

Senate intelligence committee members had threatened to block the nomination if they could not review the memos.

Mr Brennan's nomination now goes to a vote in the full Senate, where he is expected to win confirmation.

The Senate intelligence committee forwarded his nomination in a 12-3 vote on Tuesday in a closed session.

He currently serves as Mr Obama's top counter-terrorism adviser. If confirmed, he will replaced Gen David Petraeus.

I just want to know if the bastid is a Muslim. Is that true? has anybody even asked? We somehow found out Romney was a Mormon, we knew Kennedy was a Catholic, why can’t we know if Brennan is a Muslim?

We won’t. Muslims are ‘spay-shull’ and protected by this administration.

A moslem, new head of the CIA, who is cool with targeting Americans and violating every law ever written about domestic spying.

This just makes the day complete.

Oh goodness....Muslim??? John Brennan? That is as American as Apple Pie and most likely an Evangelical Christian or mainline Protestant. I have never heard of a Muslim with a name like that.

Barack Obama - Islamo / Black Liberationist (theology: James H. Cone / Jeremiah Wright - "Christian") CommUnitarian

"Before he was a devoted husband and father, or a U.S. Senator, or a presidential candidate of historic accomplishments, Barack Obama took a job working as a community organizer for a group of eight Catholic parishes in one of the nation’s largest cities. With funding from the U.S. Bishops and working for three years out of an office in a Catholic church rectory, he embarked on a campaign to empower the lives of thousands of people who were suffering through economic circumstances not unlike what has befallen our country today. "

John Kerry - Roman Catholic

Kerry was raised as a Roman Catholic by his Catholic father and Episcopalian mother.[3] As a child, Kerry served as an altar boy. Although the extended family enjoyed a great fortune, Kerry's parents themselves were upper-middle class; a wealthy great aunt paid for Kerry to attend elite schools in Europe and New England. Kerry spent his summers at the Forbes family estate in Brittany, and there, he enjoyed a more opulent lifestyle than he had previously known in Massachusetts.

Gotcha. Sometimes I'm half-fast, sometimes half-a$$ed.

Ham, sausage, bacon, Que in the 'fridge, but NO BREAD!! Wife's gone low-carb "Wheat Belly" diet, so a nice lettuce wrap is all I can do. Sorry. Pray for me.

Was catholic. Benghazi “Consulate” was a CIA base. Brennan converted to Islam while stationed in Arabia, didn’t he? Connect Brennan to Saudi prince Alaweed . The ragheads run Obama’s foreign policy.

Patraeus was CIA director during Benghazi. I believe the CIA operation was to clean up in Libya after the regime change there and secure loose weapons and look for missing MANPADS and then covertly move them to the Syrian rebels via Turkey. The CIA operatives were also trying to recruit fighters for the Syrian rebels and determine friend or foe. But four Americans dying changed that.

Obama tried to pin the blame for Benghazi on Patraeus/Clinton:

As far as Brennan, only God knows, but I don't think he is a practicing anything, but IS a product of and influenced by Catholic education and is a universalist/ecumenist which agrees with the ideology of Obama, Kerry, Hagel, all products of "Social Justice" and universalist/ecumenist thinking.
