HE SAID WHAT!!!
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said what!!! DNI James Clapper said earlier today during a House Intelligence Committee hearing that the Muslim Brotherhood movement was “Largely Secular”. WHAT!!! Are you serious? An organization who’s belief is … “Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”THIS IS A SECULAR GROUP? Is anyone in the Obama Administration capable of telling the truth or having a clue? More at the Jawa Report of the so-called secular Brotherhood.

During a House Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper called Egypt’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood movement “largely secular.”
In response to questioning from Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) about the threat posed by the group, Clapper suggested that the Egyptian part of the Brotherhood is not particularly extreme and that the broader international movement is hard to generalize about.
“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ . . . is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam,” Clapper said. “They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera. . . . In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally.”
The Brotherhood uses the slogan, “Islam is the answer,” and generally advocates for government in accordance with Islamic principles. The movement has as a broad goal unifying what it perceives as Muslim lands, from Spain to Indonesia, as a “caliphate.”
As stated by Andrew C. McCarthy at The Corner … “There’s Willful Blindness, and Then There’s Willful Stupidity”. These people are protecting us?
This stupidity comes from the same man who had no idea that there were terrorist arrests in England during an ABC interview on the very day the arrests took place. Of course Clapper is only Obama’s Director of National Intelligence. How frightening is this Administration in the protection of the United States?
