In an opinion piece for a major newspaper, a White House official lashed out at critics of the Obama administration's ability to defend against terrorism. John Brennan, Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, wrote in a USA Today op-ed on Tuesday, "Politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear-mongering only serve the goals of al-Qaeda."
Does Brennan truly think criticizing government's self-admitted "shortcomings" and "systemic failures" constitutes serving the goals of al Qaeda? And with the spate of al Qaeda attacks on our homeland, our concerns are anything but "unfounded fear-mongering."
