-- welcome back to Hannity shocking new video has emerged of president Obama's nominee to head the CIA they should concern every single American now back in 2010.
John Brennan who currently serves as the White House's top counter terror advisor he said that Islam help shape his world view watch list.
I also want to thank you on a more personal level for the opportunity to convey my respect for faith.
-- -- helps to shape my own worldview but for more than three decades they have also had a tremendous fortune to travel the world.
And as part of that experience to learn about the goodness and beauty of Islam.
As a college student in the 1970s.
I spent a summer traveling through Indonesia.
Taking in the wonderful landscape culture and people of Java and Bali.
Despite my long hair my hearing him make obvious American appearance.
I was welcomed.
Throughout that country in a way that is reflects the reflection of the tremendous warmth.
Islamic cultures and societies.
However that's not all during that same speech -- and also send us.
We -- not waging a war against terrorism because terrorism is about a tactic that will never be defeated any more than that tactic of war will.
Rather such thinking is a recipe for endless conflicts.
We -- not war against terror because terror is a state of mind.
Does a lot of people's posts trying keep Americans safe from terrorists struck me now is reaction former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was -- have been able to say happy new issue on they don't come.
And also Jihad is a legitimate part of the guys don't you listen to that the first part.
I get it I mean they're they're at -- at that.
I can understand why he would be influenced by Islam and the Muslim religion there are a lot of beautiful aspects to it the second part of it.
I don't get I don't get at all.
I mean that the fact is all this nonsense about we're not at war against terror of their war against us and it's not terra.
It's its extremist Muslims.
-- war with us.
They actually declared war on us so I don't know how he doesn't get the fact that there's a war going on what the heck -- -- -- happened.
That in Libya a couple of months ago that's part of their effort to try to kill us to try to destroy us they were wore us when they get attacked us on September 11.
They -- -- -- at war with us and they kill our ambassador a few months -- -- the worst part of let me play this -- cut here -- he talks.
About Jihad you're using a legitimate term Jihad -- does holy war jihadist terrorism.
Watch this month.
Nor does present policy this challenge as a fight against jihadist.
Describing terrorists in this way using a legitimate term Jihad.
This means to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal.
-- giving these murderous little religious legitimacy they desperately seek but in no way deserve isn't that stupid in nineteen.
Because just got to be our new CIA director for that much of an apologist I -- -- -- If there is a legitimate interpretation of Jihad and isn't it legitimate interpretation -- I get it I studied them there's really wanna.
Well well that's what the -- terrorists used Jihad.
For the purpose of holy war.
There are many ways in which you can purify itself as part of Jihad one of the ways is through holy war dying in the name of a ball and then an evolved.
That's the way the terrorists are interpreting it to this kind of nonsense to be.
Try new try new parsed parsed that -- we we know it is the Koran as interpreted by radicals mean.
We talk about infidels G Todd holy war.
He seems to -- he seems to be in denial of the fact you know -- these people are organized their war against us they wanna kill us they wanna destroy us and they have done it.
But they're actually killed a -- I -- -- we look at it continuing to kill us and chuck -- the same thing I mean.
If it wasn't so scary and so dangerous we got chuck -- -- -- -- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.
Could not identify Hezbollah Hamas for the Iranian National Guard as.
As terrorists he also he also has said sanctions don't work -- President Obama told the sold during about the -- there's during the campaign without terrific sanctions war.
And that is also shows we should attack around.
So explain to me how you're gonna stop them from becoming a nuclear power if you don't -- actions and if you take the idea of a possible military attack off the table.
And what kind of signal is -- sending to Iran to select someone who believes that.
Basically President Obama is signaling them.
I don't really believe in the sanctions all that much and don't worry we'll never attacked you.
What -- you how do you turbulence in the broader picture in terms of I -- -- going through for example the president or Joseph Biden is talking about.
Executive orders to advance.
They're gun control initiative we have Nancy Pelosi -- -- do the fourteenth amendment let's forget article one section seven of the constitution -- congress authorizes.
Spending which historically we have always done.
What do you make of their willingness to give this aggressive and -- such a -- and your enduring and during the fiscal cliff negotiations never really putting a big compromise package on the on the table that included realistic strong spending cuts which -- gotten Republican support Turkey if he really wanted.
To do something that showed.
He was gonna kind of -- people in the middle I think the president this is.
The flexing his muscles I think he wants to show.
I'm in charge I'm the boss.
You you you denied me rice I'm gonna take cable and a lot of people he -- -- for Defense Secretary who -- hagel makes it or not.
This is going to be a wounded.
Secretary of defense take nothing better thing to get a Republican to do it a Democrat.
Leon Panetta -- -- got to do what.
-- defend what you pick a Republican you pick a Republican reach out to the side of the child the show I'm I'm I'm wouldn't compromise so.
Have you selected the Republican for the Republican senators and large numbers -- -- -- opposed.
I mean it's like -- mind -- -- -- for -- right and I think there's some arrogance to think he's not patient facing reelection so was more radical side is coming out.
What advice do you have especially as it relates to debt ceiling debate which is coming up for Republicans because by it.
I don't think they handled the way they didn't have those Abraham Scott -- have to get -- -- -- -- we're we're finished -- that we shouldn't vote for anymore tax increases with -- with the debate over taxes.
The debates have to be about how we're gonna reduce spending Republicans should pass bills in the house of -- one after another reducing spending.
Let's take the risk to people get angry at us for certain special interest groups can get a cent because we're cutting -- we're cutting that.
But let's present a realistic picture of how you can reduce this deficit.
And then dare the senate to vote against it.
And then -- the president's veto would have to senate should vote for and if they have to do only essential areas of government get funded.
Actually right and that's I don't get to -- -- to shut it down until the president everyone agrees except the most radical left -- at the big problem we have is out of control spending so much attack that problem.
Let's attack -- -- politically but in the substantive way by presenting legislation that actually cuts spending and balances the budget.
And then dare the senate to vote against it mr.
mayor good to see and appreciate it -- urgency of.
