Obama minion bashes Trump while defending and praising John Brennan  

Former Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes lashed out at President Donald Trump upon learning that the administration had pulled ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance.

Catherine Herridge, a Fox News chief correspondent, spoke at a symposium held by Accuracy in Media (AIM). The Conservative Base’s Jim Kouri is a frequent contributor to AIM.

Citing Brennan’s involvement in the raid that killed 9/11 terrorist Osama Bin Laden, Rhodes seemed to suggest that proved Brennan was above reproach. “John Brennan was the point person for the Obama White House on the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. He knows a lot more about defending our nation than someone who uses security clearances to punish his political adversaries,” Rhodes posted on his Twitter page.

But one government worker, Mark Pukita, wasn’t prepared to let Rhodes get away with his obvious propaganda. He replied: “The ‘point person?’ He went with the SEALS? He flew the copter? He found bin Laden? Risked his life? No? More like … he found out the CIA located bin Laden, [Navy] SEALS had a plan, and Brennan is part of a crowd in D.C. [falling] all over each other to take credit for the work of patriots.”

And Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill — the SEAL Team 6 member who went public as the man who fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden — also fired back at Rhodes, making an apparent reference to the other operators who carried out the mission alongside him: ” Actually, Ben Rhodes, 23 conservatives went after [Osama bin Laden]. No offense in case you were wondering.”

O’Neill was never shy about offering his strategic opinions to anyone who would ask.

For example, in 2015, he voiced his complaints against President Barack Obama or his lack of a coordinated strategy in confronting a growing ISIS threat. He also openly criticized President Trump regarding his plan to hold a military parade.

In response to the media’s “bombardment” of the Trump White House, former U.S. Army Brigadier General Anthony Tata called John Brennan a “clear and present danger” to the United States.

“[Brennan] wants to unlawfully drive President Trump out of the Oval Office,”  Tata said. Brennan’s constant tweets attacking the president and calling for his ouster is more than enough to necessitate his security clearance being revoked. Although his leaking is equally problematic.

    YES! It’s happening already.

    The 60 former CIA Directors and employees who came out in support of Brennan have exposed themselves. Can you believe it, in support of a communist and traitor. Now THEY should lose their security clearances, too.

    They are destroying the CIA themselves, as far back as the earliest letter signatory’s tenure and right back to its beginning.



    The letter’s signatories include former Directors of Central Intelligence, etc.
