Ex-Spy Slams Brennan’s ‘Freedom of Speech’ Hypocrisy

Former CIA Director John Brennan wants Americans to view him as a victim of President Trump’s alleged effort to “suppress freedom of speech & punish critics.” President Trump ordered Brennan’s clearance stripped in July, a decision announced on Aug. 15.

“It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent,” Brennan wrote.

Brennan’s protest is a case of “do as I say, not as I do,” former CIA official Sam Faddis told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT). He pointed to the case of his former CIA colleague Sabrina de Sousa as a case in point. Faddis has known de Sousa for 30 years and is a 20-year CIA veteran.

An Italian court convicted de Sousa in absentia in 2009 in connection with in the rendition of Osama Mustapha Hassan Nasr, better known as Abu Omar. CIA operatives and an Italian military police officer kidnapped Abu Omar off a Milan street in February 2003. Prosecutors claimed was sent from Rome to Milan to plan the rendition.
