(Mar. 6, 2013) — Chuck Todd of NBC News tweeted at approximately 12:10 p.m. EST that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is filibustering the nomination of John Brennan to head the Central Intelligence Agency following the resignation of Gen. David Petraeus directly after the presidential election.
On Tuesday, the Senate Intelligence Committee approved of Brennan “after the White House agreed to provide more information” on why Americans overseas were killed by drones upon Obama’s order. Brennan has been acting as a national security adviser to Obama since 2009.
Sen. Paul had promised to filibuster Brennan’s nomination on February 21 after he sent a letter to Brennan claiming that Brennan’s unwillingness to answer questions about the drone strikes made him unfit for the position, a viewpoint seconded by others. Paul reportedly asked Brennan on three occasions for more information and received a response on Tuesday wherein putative Attorney General Eric Holder stated that the Obama regime would consider an “extraordinary circumstance” in which a drone would be fired upon a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil. A separate response from Brennan stated that “I would have no ‘power’ to authorize such operations” within the United States.
One of three contract employees to have committed the 2008 passport breach of the files of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain had worked for Brennan’s company, The Analysis Corporation (TAC). The breaches were initially attributed to “impudent curiosity.” In April 2008, a young man reportedly cooperating with the ensuing investigation was murdered while in his car outside of a church in Washington, DC.
Brennan became Obama’s “chief counterterrorism adviser” but was evidently unable to prevent the attack on a U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, which killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to the north African nation despite his fluency in Arabic, experience as a CIA agent, and concentration in Middle Eastern studies while in college. The Obama regime has not been forthcoming with information, perhaps for political reasons.
Last September, United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice spoke to the press regarding the Benghazi murders, although her talking points were reportedly sanitized by the Director of National Intelligence, although speculation exists that it was Brennan who made the change.
Newsmax has removed linked material about the passport breach and its possible connection to Obama’s questionable citizenship and qualifications for the presidency as a “natural born Citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution. After publicizing two documents alleged to be birth certificates but declared fraudulent by experts, Obama refused to release his passport applications although Donald Trump offered $5,000,000 to a charity of Obama’s choice if he would do so.
Brennan has been suspected of being a convert to Islam, a member of The Muslim Brotherhood, and “an open Israel-hater.” He has been noted to “sympathize” with Islamics, as has his boss, Obama. Former CIA operative and foreign policy analyst Michael Scheuer describes Brennan as having been “thoroughly detested” while working for the CIA. Brennan has publicly stated that Islamic extremists should not be termed “jihadists.” Scheuer opines that Brennan and Obama are “following orders” from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Update, 4:55 p.m. EST: Three additional senators joined Paul’s filibuster.
9:22 p.m. EST: Sen. Paul is still filibustering Brennan’s nomination and stated that Hitler was democratically-elected. “I’m not accusing anyone of being that evil,” Paul said, but left the possibility open that someone “that evil” could be elected in the U.S.
