Brennan: 'Too much freedom is possible'too much freedom is possible' in a discussion of Egypt in 1980 under Anwar Sadat.
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.”
President Obama has definitely found his ideological soulmates in John FN Kerry (who was confirmed on Tuesday), Chuck Hagel and John Brennan.
