Over the Labor Day weekend, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson betrayed the American people. He did so by addressing a conference of the largest U.S.-based Muslim Brotherhood front: the Islamic Society of North America.
That would be the group that has fomented revolutions against American friends across the Mideast. It’s the world’s most influential Islamic supremacist organization, inspiring and making common cause with others like the Islamic State and al-Qaeda. And it has as its stated mission “destroying Western civilization from within.”
That declared goal is what makes Secretary Johnson’s efforts to legitimate and embrace the Brotherhood so alarming. To the extent that he and others in the U.S. government are allowing its operatives to penetrate and exercise influence over our security policies, they are greatly increasing the danger we face from the global jihadists.
Jeh Johnson should recant, or resign.
