Barton Distorts Modern History Too

Right Wing Watch reports that David Barton doesn’t just distort the history of America’s founding, he also distorts modern history. On a recent broadcast of his radio show, Barton interviewed John Guandolo, a former FBI agent that he claims was forced out by “Muslim radicals” who control the agency.

Barton: John used to be the guy who briefed the FBI on terrorism and radical Islamic terrorism and so many Islamic folks worked their way into the FBI, they got him thrown out. They said “he keeps speaking bad about Islam, he keeps saying bad things about radical Islam, you need to get rid of him.” But he’s part of Team B and he’s the guy who keeps bringing out and bringing to light stuff, so John, we thought he’d be a good guy to have examine this because he is a national expert, he did brief the FBI until the Islamic folks kind of took him and got rid of him.

I mean, this is the kind of level of ignorance that is a real problem and that’s why John is really good at what he does. And you can understand why [Eric] Holder and others in the FBI wouldn’t want Guandolo around there. These are the kind of people they are chasing off because you’re starting to see the Muslim Brotherhood actually get in to some of our institutions.


And now, reality: Guandolo resigned from the FBI because he was having sex with a confidential informant in a federal corruption case.

As the corruption case against former Rep. William Jefferson was about to go to trial in June, prosecutors learned from their star witness that she had had a sexual relationship with the undercover FBI agent who drove her to all the meetings where she secretly taped and delivered cash to the New Orleans Democrat.

But according to court documents unsealed last week, the FBI and its Office of Professional Responsibility knew at least as far back as last December that the agent, John Guandolo, “had had an intimate relationship with a confidential source that he thought could damage an investigation.”

Guandolo resigned from the FBI on or about Dec. 1, before the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility could question him about his sexual liaisons with Mody, as well as with women FBI agents, relationships detailed in a document Guandolo had prepared.

FBI spokesmen at the Washington, D.C., field office and at national headquarters said Friday that they could not comment on personnel matters. William Carter of the FBI National Press Office said he had brought the question of why the FBI did not pass along what they knew about Guandolo to the federal court, to the FBI’s Office of General Counsel for their review.

On Friday, Guandolo declined to go beyond a statement he gave to the FBI on June 7, in which he expressed his “deep remorse” for his sexual relationship with Mody, and his hope that it wouldn’t damage the case against Jefferson.

By God, those Muslims are even more clever than we thought! They even make good Christian men like Guandolo have sex with witnesses in cases they’re investigating!
