Understanding the Threat

As founder of, former FBI agent John Guandolo focuses on emerging threats facing the United States. John Guandolo examines how Islamic extremist organizations have infiltrated the country’s defense perimeters and pose a distinct threat to its continued existence as a nation in which liberty and freedom are enshrined.

Speaking on national radio, a pair of former U.S. government officials recently revealed Muslim Brotherhood to be a driving force in jihadi activity nationwide. The influence of the organization is so great that it defines the way in which terrorism is discussed and influences what national security activities are carried out.

Asked to explain the kind of language that was prohibited within the U.S. government, one of the Sean Hannity radio program guests noted that no reference to Islamic doctrine could be constructed in such a way that an American enemy was defined. With the Muslim Brotherhood controlling many aspects of the government decision-making process, security personnel are not easily able to develop a comprehensive understanding of potential threats. The bottom line is that a recurrence of the events of 9-11 and the Orlando nightclub shooting is more likely to happen as long as this issue is unresolved.
