A former FBI agent said that there were indications that President Barack Obama’s CIA nominee John Brennan converted to Islam between 1996 and 1999 when he was the CIA station chief in Riyadh, Al Arabiya reported.
Guandolo concluded that this “video confirms Brennan converted to Islam” since non-Muslims are not allowed to visit Medina and Mecca especially during the Hajj season.
Brennan is a CIA veteran, among his previously held posts are the deputy national security advisor for homeland security and counterterrorism. The 57-year-old was nominated by President Obama on Jan 7 to head the CIA.
He would succeed retired General David Petraeus, who resigned amid a scandal over an extramarital affair with his biographer.
Ex-FBI agent Guandolo, who is described as an anti-Islam activist by MSNBC that carried the story, said in the radio interview Brennan is “un-fit” to head the CIA.
“The facts (are)…confirmed by US government officials who were also in Saudi Arabia at the time that John Brennan was serving…they were direct witnesses to his growing relationships with individuals who work with the Saudi government and they witnessed his conversion to Islam,” said Guandolo.
