Muslim Brotherhood's Long Tentacles Reach to American Gov.
by Ryan Mauro
In what could prove to be a watershed moment in the fight against radical Islam, five prominent members of Congress wrote letters on June 13 to the Inspector Generals of the Departments of State, Justice, Defense, Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence requesting investigations into the influence of Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups and individuals.
The letters were signed by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL) and Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence; Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) of the House Armed Services Committee and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), the Vice Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security.
The letters refer to a 10-part, freely-available online course created by the Center for Security Policy titled, "Muslim Brotherhood in America." Each letter mentions incidents where the respective departments worked with entities or individuals tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
