...But Brennan, in full tin-foil-hat mode, was downright scary. Speaking on Wednesday, he even praised the administration’s response to the BP oil disaster. Jeez…sycophancy should have legal limits.
Brennan was prepping the pundits on the terrorism side of the NSS. Except that it’s not really terrorism, you see. And it’s certainly not Islamist terrorism or a jihad. Brennan spent an alarming amount of time on indirect apologies to Muslims. As in:Facts? Who cares about facts--petty, irrelevant details--when you can have reality as Obama sees it?
“Nor do we describe our enemy as jihadists or Islamists because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community.”
What? Does this administration really believe that it gets to re-define jihad? Sounds like one of its pet Muslim “experts” worked on the speech. But trust me: When Osama says al-Qaeda’s waging jihad, Muslims believe him, not White-Bread John Brennan.
And by the way: Jihad in Islam usually means aggressive holy war to kill and subjugate infidels. Check the Islamic texts (you know, the ones Muslims read). And there’s no pope in Islam who gets to give claims of jihad a thumbs up or down. If the local yokels declare a jihad, it’s a jihad, boys and girls.
Don’t facts matter at all to this administration? I guess the 9/11 terrorists were just purifying themselves and their community...
Call it ObamaTruth.
