SHOCKER: Obama’s CIA Director Once Voted for The Communist Party Presidential Candidate


Now we know why Obama chose John Brennan to lead the CIA. Apparently, Brennan once voted for the Communist Party’s presidential candidate.

CNN reported:

Polygraph panic: CIA director fretted his vote for communist

At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret.

John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US?

“I froze,” Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference. “This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,”

Brennan was responding to a question about barriers to recruiting diverse candidates for the intelligence fields, including whether past records of activism could hurt someone applying for a clearance later in life.

The CIA director said the agency’s mission is to protect the values of the Constitution — which include free speech.

“We’ve all had indiscretions in our past,” he said, adding neither some drug experimentation nor activism was a non-starter. “I would not be up here if that was disqualifying.”

It may not be disqualifying, but it certainly is stupid.

It’s also a reminder that as president, Obama has done everything he can to surround himself with far left wing ideologues.
