Proposed CIA Director John Brennan Supported Censorship, Denied Absolute Human Rights

Topics:

Charles C. Johnson writes at the Daily Caller:

In his 1980 graduate thesis at the University of Texas at Austin, John Brennan denied the existence of "absolute human rights" and argued in favor of censorship on the part of the Egyptian dictatorship.

"Since the press can play such an influential role in determining the perceptions of the masses, I am in favor of some degree of government censorship," Brennan wrote. "Inflamatory [sic] articles can provoke mass opposition and possible violence, especially in developing political systems."

Brennan serves as President Barack Obama's national security advisor. Obama has nominated him to lead the Central Intelligence Agency.

Troubling, yes. But pretty much what we should expect out of this administration and its appointees and nominees.
