Ex-FBI agent John Guandolo sparked a Wednesday protest outside Mission Valley's Dave & Buster's restaurant but drew sustained applause inside from U.S. Naval Academy graduates following a speech alleging widespread infiltration of mosques and government agencies by Islamic terrorists and their sympathizers.
Before he took the eatery's stage, a protest and news conference led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on the San Diego chapter of the U.S. Naval Academy Association to distance themselves from their keynote speaker by "saying 'no' to hate."
"We want the association to publicly apologize," said Hanif Mohebi, executive director of CAIR's San Diego chapter. "We want the association to publicly distance themselves from his views."
