Islamists the Islamists Within
by Arnold Ahlert
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and four other House colleagues are making things uncomfortable for an Obama administration that has a decided tolerance for Islamists. In doing so, Bachmann and company have raised two important questions. First, they want to know how Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's top aide, deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, got security clearance, despite having relatives with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Second, they would like an investigation conducted regarding the "potential Muslim Brotherhood infiltration" of the Obama administration. For their efforts, they were challenged by Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN). Ms. Bachmann's response, detailing her concerns and those of her colleagues, reveals the extent to which this administration has been tainted–or quite possibly corrupted–by Islamist influences.
The story begins on June 13, when Bachmann, and four other members of the House, Reps. Trent Franks (R-AZ), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Thomas Rooney (R-FL) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) sent five separate letters to five separate Inspectors General. The letters expressed concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the government in general, and Huma Abedin's familial connections with the Muslim Brotherhood in particular.
