    Barack Obama's Choice for CIA Chief 'Converted to Islam' Former FBI Agent Claims.....

    John Guandolo claims John Brennan converted while in Saudi Arabia
    Former FBI agent says Mr Brennan visited Mecca and Medina during Hajj



    John Guandolo, who retired from the FBI in 2008, said in a radio interview that John Brennan - who has been nominated by Barack Obama as the new director of the CIA - visited the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina accompanied by Saudi officials who may have persuaded him to convert.

    Mr Guandolo told the Trento Radio Show via Skype that Mr Brennan visited the holy sites during the Hajj season - in sees hundreds of thousands of Muslims converge on the cities to perform a series of rituals - while serving as CIA station chief in Riyadh between 1996 and 1999, a report on Al Arabiya News said.

    Non-Muslims are prohibited from entering Mecca, and are not permitted to enter the city centre, or sacred core, of Medina.

    The ex-FBI agent told the radio station Mr Brennan was 'unfit' to take charge of the CIA, and claimed U.S. government officials based in Saudi Arabia during that period 'were direct witnesses to his growing relationships with individuals who work with the Saudi government and they witnessed his conversion to Islam'.....snip~

    There is a video of this FBI agent with the OP too. Wonder if this will be given any air time over Brennan's confirmation. Could prove interesting.

    Since this is the daily mail I will take everything they say with a ton of salt. I mean really, you can't trust them to report on celebrity news, let alone real news.

    Is the claim that he did convert or is it that he may have converted? Is there any actual evidence to back up this claim?

    Incidentally, the Daily Mail is mainstream media. It's corrupt tabloid trash but it is, sadly, still mainstream.

    Do you mean other than the former FBI agent saying this? I haven't seen any response by the Saud.

    No, I didn't watch the video. But just because a person is FBI, ex-FBI even, doesn't mean he is an authority in the matter. There could be a ton of ulterior motives for him to say what he said. In fact, it may be because he is ex-FBI that he is making these allegations.

    Look. The dailymail can never be trusted to be a proper source unless collaborated with other credible sources. Not neccesarily from the mainstream media since they are not really what qualify to be credible sources, but yeah, at least something else. But I don't know. It could be true. It could be, and it is a concern, but it depends on the character of the man, not on the religion he is affiliated with. Maybe he needed a change in his life. The guy did say that this happened in the 90s so, yeah. It could have been anything.

    At one point there was the belief that Obama is a muslim. And next month he announced he will make another trip to the Middle East. Last time he did that, he bowed to the Saudi Prince like a vassal and that only accelerated the rumours of him being a Muslim. But he never acted in a way that would put him at odds with his office and his oath even if he were a muslim.

    Not all muslims are religious either. So who knows. But this needs more background, more info, it is not really news worthy.

    Non-Muslims are prohibited from entering Mecca, and are not permitted to enter the city centre, or sacred core, of Medina.....snip~

    Well my question would be.....are there Cameras in Mecca. Which if so, there would be a very easy way to confirm if Brennan walked into Mecca and Medina.

    Still it will not matter anyways.....as he will be confirmed. The Republicans don't even have enough to filibuster the Confirmation. So this grandstanding over Obama's picks is nothing more than for show. As the Repubs caved on taking a Stand with them.

    McCain was on the Radio over the weekend and stated the Republicans have never filibustered a Presidential Appointment. Now was not the time to start.

    That's not evidence, that's just the claim. You've also not said whether the claim is that he has converted or could have converted (I can't watch the video as I have no working sound here). I see no reason to give an unsupported claim by one individual (whoever he is) any serious credit.

    Don't really care what religion is in the discussion but someone who would change religions on the spot might change other allegiances just as suddenly. I think the government likes it's agents to be a bit more predictable.
