National Security Deputy Sucks Up to Pro-Terrorist Imam

If only believing that a 20% recidivism rate for the terrorist maniacs whirling through the revolving door at Club Gitmo isn’t bad were the only moonbattery recently served up by Obama’s national security deputy John Brennan. While duckspeaking last week before Islamic law students at New York University, Brennan welcomed a question from Omar Shahin, self-identified as the head of the “North American Imams Federation.” We know Shahin as the ringleader of the Flying Imams, who deliberately terrorized airline passengers into thinking another 9/11-style attack was underway, as part of a campaign to undermine anti-terror defenses. Shahin has boasted of planning to arrange “many, many cases” with a similar objective. He also runs the Tucson Islamic Center, where he preaches that sharia takes precedence over the laws of us infidels. Shahin denies that Muslims had anything to do with 9/11, leaving George Bush as the probable perpetrator.

The Jordanian native presented Brennan with a tediously familiar and nauseatingly phony pose:

“We came to this country to enjoy freedom. We feel that since September 11, we aren’t enjoying these values anymore… Also, we feel that there’s a big lack of trust between Muslims’ community and our government… My question: Is there anything being done by our government to rebuild this trust?”

Sure: there’s been lots and lots of politically correct groveling. Take it away, Michelle Malkin:

Instead of countering the narrative, exposing Shahin’s true intentions, and vigorously defending America’s homeland security apparatus, Brennan dutifully genuflected to the gods of political correctness. President Obama, he told the militant 9/11 inside-jobber and jihad white-washer, is “determined to put America on a strong course.”

No, not a “strong course” that includes national security profiling of Islamic radicals pretending they care about our country’s best interests. By “strong course,” Brennan assured Shahin, he meant a course towards assuaging the civil rights groups who have objected to every security program at airports, borders, train stations, and visa offices for the past nine years.

Brennan told Shahin that the post-9/11 response of the Bush administration was a “reaction some people might say was over the top in some areas” (insert indignant grievance-monger nodding and mmm-hmm-ing here) and that “in an overabundance of caution [we] implemented a number of security measures and activities that upon reflection now we look back after the heat of the battle has died down a bit we say they were excessive, okay.”

It gets worse: Brennan then went on to decry the “ignorant feelings” of Americans outraged at the jihadi attacks on American soil. And then he told Shahin and the audience of Muslim students that he “was very concerned after the attack in Fort Hood as well as the December 25 attack that all of sudden there were people who went back into this fearful position that lashed out not thinking through what was reasonable and appropriate.”

The Fort Hood jihadist slaughtered 14 innocent [Americans including] an unborn baby after an Army career openly threatening the lives of our soldiers and Brennan is wringing his hands about the rest of us “lashing out” over government incompetence. He believes our true sin is not in the systemic underreacting by the military, homeland security, intel, and White House officials in charge, but in the “overreacting” of the American public.

With clueless capitulationists like Brennan in charge of our safety, who needs enemies?

No one who was paying any attention at all thought Comrade Obama or the moonbats he would be sure to appoint would lift a finger to defend us from Islamic terrorists. Apparently the idea was that if you signal weakness and submission to the bully, the bully will leave you alone.
