Post 9/11, U.S. Brotherhood Groups Receive Gov't Funds
A review of federal spending by the Clarion Project found that the U.S. government has engaged in financial transactions with group with extremist backgrounds and Muslim Brotherhood links in the years since 9/11.
The U.S. government website, USASpending.gov, shows that the Defense Department had eight transactions with the Kansas chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS) from 2006 to 2009 totaling $24,600. The listed contracting agency is the Department of the Army and the contracting office is Fort Leavenworth.
Two years before the first recorded transaction, a Chicago Tribune investigation clearly identified MAS as a Muslim Brotherhood front. In 2008, federal prosecutors stated in a court filing in a terrorism trial that MAS "was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America." In 2012, an admitted member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leadership and convicted terrorist named Abdurrahman Alamaoudi testified that "Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood."
