CAIR Bullying Tactics Fail in Virginia

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

Culpeper County (Va) Sheriff Scott Jenkins has turned down a demand from CAIR that he cancel a three-day counter training seminar that features ex-FBI agent John Guandolo

"CAIR sent letters to the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice and the Rappahannock Regional Justice Academy on Friday afternoon asking that officers attending the seminar not be given the 40 hours of re-certification credits it now carries."

(Back in the 1990s, when I was an instructor at DEA's Office of Training at the FBI Academy in Quantico, I participated in a state and local drug police training course at the Rappahannock Training Academy.)

"The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors extremist groups, has also called on Jenkins to cancel the seminars. It said Guandolo has claimed that CIA Director John Brennan is a secret Muslim agent for the Saudis."

Since it is mentioned in the newspaper article, I will go ahead and comment on this. There are rumors that Brennan converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia with the CIA some years ago. I don't know if it is true or not. Brennan, of course, could clear it up if anyone in the media would dare to ask him. He is entitled to follow whatever religion he wishes. If he were the type of Muslim that say, Zuhdi Jasser is, I would have no worries.  But is it relevant given the world situation? In my view, yes. As it is,  I don't have much regard for Brennan as CIA director no matter what his faith is. 

At  any rate, I applaud Sheriff Jenkins for standing up to CAIR.
