Speaking with conviction at a National Press Club meeting last month was retired 4-Star U.S. Navy Adm. James A. “Ace” Lyons — and he had a lot to say about radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence on the Obama administration.
The former Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet spoke to the audience about his growing concern about radical Islamists, especially those of the Muslim Brotherhood, infiltrating a growing number of U.S. agencies.
“No question we’ve got a hell of a job ahead of us with the Muslim Brotherhood penetration in every one of our national security agencies, including all our intelligence agencies,” Lyons told the crowd.
Lyons believes our response to terrorism went downhill during the Carter administration’s reaction to the Iran hostage situation. He blames a lack of progress on the fact that political correctness “has neutralized our military.”
But the real problem started in 2008, when Obama was elected for the first time. Lyons said that was when America’s transformation really began to take place.
Lyons pointed out that Obama’s snubbing of the massive free speech march in France last month was a “signal to Islamic jihadis” and just “one of many signals he sent over the years while in office.”
Perhaps most alarming is Lyon’s suspicion that the head of the CIA, John Brennan, is a Muslim convert — which could certainly have an effect on U.S. intelligence strategy around the world (H/T Western Journalism).
To back Lyon’s claims of a mass Muslim Brotherhood infiltration, there have already been reports of an attempt by the Brotherhood to start their own political party, which could begin to shape and influence politics right here in the United States.
The retired admiral summed up his thoughts on the current state of the growing terror threat, telling crowd, “The threat is Islam. Let’s make no mistake about it. There’s no such thing as radical Islam.”
What’s alarming is that this is not some guy in his mom’s basement typing this in an online forum — this is one of the most respected military commanders in recent history.
Not only do American citizens need to listen; so does Congress.
