Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution, dating from 1787, which has George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it.

Last month I wrote an article speculating whether or not John Brennan, Obama's choice for CIA Director, is a useful idiot or a Muslim; see John Brennan, Even If He Is Not a Muslim, Is Unfit to be CIA Director.
I was going to wait for him to be sworn into office to see whether he would do it with his hand on the Bible, or on the Qur'an, as did our first Muslim Congressman, the idiot Keith Ellison.
Well, he did neither - now I believe he really is a secret Muslim: instead of disappointing his fellow Muslims by putting his hand on the Bible or outing himself as a Muslim by using a Qur'an, Brennan chose to use a copy of the Constitution (1). Very clever this new spy-in-chief - or should I say, double agent.
I have no objection to using the Constitution for swearing in ceremonies if one is an Atheist or non-Christian, for example Representative Kyrsten Sinema (D - Ariz.) was sworn in a few months back with her hand placed over a copy of the United States Constitution, instead of the Holy Bible (2); however I do object doing so to hide one's Muslim affiliation.
We will see how our War on Terror fares against our enemies with a CIA Director who believes Jihad means to purify oneself or one's community through good works.
Newly confirmed Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan took his oath in a swearing ceremony that was highly unusual. Brennan was not sworn in on a Bible. He was sworn in by Vice President Joe Biden on a “first draft” of the Constitution, which does not contain the Bill of Rights.
This week, as members of the 113th Congress were sworn in, Representative Kyrsten Sinema (D - Ariz.) drew attention as she placed her hand over a copy of the United States Constitution, instead of the Holy Bible. The last time this change of pace occurred was in 2007 when Keith Ellison (D - Minn.) requested to be sworn in using the Qur'an.
Raised a Mormon and a graduate of Brigham Young University, religion has been a significant part of Sinema’s life. Known to quote the phrase that Americans are entitled to “freedom of religion and freedom from religion,” some
believe she's actually an an atheist. When asked, she has responded
that she prefers a secular approach to government. Perhaps she believes
in the enforcement of the separation of church and state, and doesn’t
think there should be an unofficial religious test for public office.
