An almost unnoticed CNN piece from last week reported the unbelievable: CIA director John O. Brennan voted for the Communist Party as a young man, admitted this to the CIA in 1980, and was still allowed to join.
“I said I was neither Democratic or Republican, but it was my way, as I was going to college, of signaling my unhappiness with the system, and the need for change. I said I’m not a member of the Communist Party, so the polygrapher looked at me and said, ‘OK,’ and when I was finished with the polygraph and I left and said, ‘Well, I’m screwed.'”
But he soon got his admission notice to the CIA and was relieved, he said, saying that though the agency still had long strides to make in accepting gay recruits and minorities, even then it recognized the importance of freedom.
“So if back in 1980, John Brennan was allowed to say, ‘I voted for the Communist Party with Gus Hall’ … and still got through, rest assured that your rights and your expressions and your freedom of speech as Americans is something that’s not going to be disqualifying of you as you pursue a career in government.”
Gus Hall was a Communist Party USA leader who sentenced to 8 years in prison for “advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government.”
He led the CPUSA for over 40 years.
And our current President Barack Obama picked him as CIA chief.
It’s a wild world we live in, folks. Looks like McCarthy was right.
