On Tuesday afternoon, February 11th, the Center for Security Policy delivered copies of an affidavit-style document – signed by senior U.S. National Security officials, including John Guandolo – to the leadership of the American Conservative Union (ACU) and Republican State Legislator Cleta Mitchell of Oklahoma which unequivocally destroys her claims that “no evidence” exists tying Republican strategist and Tax Reform leader Grover Norquist and “conservative Republican” muslim Suhail Khan to jihadi/terrorist/”extremist” organizations and individuals.
The Statement of Facts detailed in this document specifically demonstrates that both men are involved in directly supporting leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and Al Qaeda in America.
Specifically, Suhail Khan – who was serving in the White House on 9/11, and who worked directly for two Secretaries of Transportation among other assignments – is the son of one of the founders of the Muslim Brotherhood in America…Mahboob Khan. Khan founded the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization in North America – the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) – as well as the Hamas organization, Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Khan’s mother works for Hamas in California, and he openly supports jihadis. Specifically, he openly praised and pronounced his respect for, and friendship with, convicted Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.
Grover Norquist, the man who, along with Newt Gingrich, led the 1994 “Republican Revolution” and is a “leader” in the conservative movement, is the registered agent for the Islamic Free Market Institute in Washington, DC, which was created with $20,000 provided directly by Al Qaeda operative Alamoudi from his personal bank account and led by jihadi Khaled Saffuri. It was Norquist who helped get jihadis (or “terrorists” if you prefer) Sami al Arian, Abdurahman Alamoudi, Nihad Awad, and others into the Bush White House.
Norquist and Khan work very close together, and Norquist openly defends Khan.
The document is entitled “The Islamists’ – and their Enablers’ – Assault on the Right: The Case Against Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan” and is signed by Judge Michael Mukasey (81st Attorney General of the United States), R. James Woolsey (former Director Central Intelligence), the Honorable Allen West (former U.S. Congressman), Admiral James Lyons (retired Commander in Chief, U.S. Pacific Command), Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin (former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence), the Honorable Joseph Schmitz (former Inspector General for the Department of Defense), Andrew C. McCarthy (Chief Counterterrorism Prosecutor/Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY), the Honorable Henry Cooper (Ambassador for Defense and Space Talks & Director of the Strategic Defense Initiative), Clare Lopez (career CIA Case Officer and Station Chief), and John Guandolo (former FBI Special Agent and Founder of UnderstandingtheThreat.com).

Mr. Guandolo is a 1989 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and took a commission as an Officer in the United States Marine Corps. He served with 2d Battalion 2d Marines as an Infantry Platoon Commander in combat Operations Desert Shield/Storm. From 1991-1996, he served in 2d Force Reconnaissance Company as a Platoon Commander, Assistant Operations Officer, and the unit’s Airborne and Diving Officer.

In 1996, Mr. Guandolo resigned his commission in the Marine Corps and joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), serving at the Washington Field Office. From 1996-2000, he primarily conducted narcotics investigations domestically and overseas. In 2001, he served for one year as the FBI Liaison to the U.S. Capitol Police investigating threats on the President, Vice-President, Members of Congress and other high-level government officials. Shortly after 9/11, Mr. Guandolo began an assignment to the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI’s Washington Field Office developing an expertise in the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Doctrine, the global Islamic Movement, and a myriad of terrorist organizations to include Hamas, Al Qaeda, and others.
In 2006, Mr. Guandolo created and implemented the FBI’s first Counterterrorism Training/Education Program focusing on the Muslim Brotherhood and their subversive movement in the United States, Islamic Doctrine, and the global Islamic Movement. He was designated a “Subject Matter Expert” by FBI Headquarters. This course was hailed as “groundbreaking” by the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director in a brief to the Vice President’s National Security Staff. For his efforts, in 2007 Mr. Guandolo was presented the “Defender of the Homeland” Award by U.S. Senators John Kyl and Joseph Lieberman on behalf of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. While in the FBI, Mr. Guandolo received two (2) United States Attorney’s Awards for Investigative Excellence.
Mr. Guandolo served on the Washington Field Office SWAT team for over nine years and as its Team Leader for three of those years. He was a certified Undercover Agent, and served in a variety of assignments in that capacity. Mr. Guandolo was a Nationally Registered Paramedic, a First Aid Instructor, and served as an “Advanced Capability Medic” with the FBI. His career has included significant overseas travel to include many areas of Africa, Southwest Asia, Europe and elsewhere. In his last year and a half in the FBI, Mr. Guandolo served on a Surveillance Unit.
Mr. Guandolo advises governments – U.S. and others – on matters related to National Security, specifically the threat from the Global Islamic Movement. He actively advises members of Congress, law enforcement, the intelligence community, military, National Guard, key community leaders, and others. He served as an adjunct instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College and the U.S. Army War College, and is one of the authors of Shariah – The Threat to America, the first comprehensive book on the threat from the Islamic Movement in the U.S. He has appeared on television and radio, and regularly publishes articles related to these matters in a number of media outlets.
