Internet Conspiracy Theory Of The Day

A story if flying around the web that the man President Obama wants to lead the CIA is a secret Muslim.

John Brennan's joined the CIA after seeing an recruitment ad while riding a bus to classes at Fordham University in the 1970s. He rose through the ranks becoming station chief in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in the Clinton years and was picked by George Bush to become deputy executive director of the CIA in 2001. He then became director of the Terrorist Threat Integration Center and National Counterterrorism Center before leaving government in 2005 for private security sector.

Obama made him deputy national security advisor for homeland security and counterterrorism after taking office in 2009.

During the Bush years he supported waterboarding terrorist suspects. During the Obama years he supported the massive increase in drone attacks.

He is fluent in Arabic.

AlJazeera doesn't like the choice.

And in other CIA news, the U.K. Daily Mail is reporting that David Petraeus, the man Brennan is tapped to replace, was brought down by his own bodyguards and high ranking CIA agents who objected to his style of management. The claims are based on a book by former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb and former Green Beret Jack Murphy.

The article notes that Peatraeus was unaware of unilateral operations in Libya orchestrated by Brennan which are believed to be the motive for the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks that killed four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens and Special Force members who were friends of the authors, and hence failed to take precautions he would have otherwise made.

Meanwhile, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the filmmaker the Obama administration claims motivated the attack, remains in prison.
