Robert Spencer Questions Loyalty Of Top CIA Counterterror Official
The long Washington Post profile this weekend of a top Central Intelligence Agency official contained a remarkable number of details about the man that heads the Agency’s Counterterrorism Center — remarkable because the man remained shrouded in mystery, referenced only by the first name of his cover identity, ‘Roger.’ Roger chain smokes, swears, worked in Africa, was ‘pudgy’ in his youth, and — oh, yeah — he’s Muslim.
And that is what Spencer has a problem with:
None of that was enough to convince Robert Spencer, a long-time ally of anti-Muslim mainstay Pamela Geller, that “Roger” just might be a Manchurian candidate foisted upon the CIA by Muslim extremists looking to destroy America:
[I]f Islamic supremacists wanted to subvert the U.S. defense against jihad terror, they couldn’t do it more easily than by turning someone in a position like Roger’s. The worst part of this story is that no one is even examining that as a possibility.
But wait, this guy has been behind the drone strikes decimating Al Qaeda and help take out Bin Laden, how can he a possible traitor?
Never fear, Spencer will explain that.
The Washington Post, of course, follows the mainstream media line that Islam is a Religion of Peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists, and so takes for granted that ‘Roger’ has no loyalty issues, and proffers the drone campaign and the killing of bin Laden as proof.
It was all a cunning ruse.
