It Was John Brennan Himself Who Halted LEO Training on Islam, Jihad

Intelligence and law enforcement agents training to counter terrorist threats today are taught all about militiamen and white supremacists -- but they hear nary a word about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Islamic jihadists. Unless they educate themselves on their own, our agents have no training on what jihadis are intent on doing and why. They are left abjectly incapable of devising effective strategies for countering them.

Five years ago, John Brennan -- via a letter on White House stationery -- assured U.S. Muslim groups that the Obama administration’s politically correct “Countering Violent Extremism” program had been satisfactorily cleansed, because:

… misinformation about the threat and dynamics of radicalization to violence can harm our security by sending local stakeholders in the wrong direction and unnecessarily creating tensions with potential community partners.

Our counter-terror material no longer contains accurate information on jihad because Brennan feared -- correctly -- that it would offend Muslim communities in the United States. These groups have consistently responded with anger towards any and every counter-terror measure aimed at stopping jihad terror.

Brennan also told U.S. Muslim groups this:

[The CVE program] emphasizes that our security is “inextricably linked to our values,” including “the promotion of an inclusive society.”

Well, now Brennan has his inclusive society. We saw just how inclusive our screening process has been last Saturday night in Orlando.

Had Brennan not purged the training materials, the FBI would have been better prepared when they questioned Mateen. THREE times.

There will be many more Orlandos, because John Brennan himself made sure that the U.S. would never challenge the beliefs and assumptions that have enabled the Islamic State to have the “global reach” he now laments.
