There is no longer any doubt why Republicans lost the 2008 Presidential election and why the Republican controlled House appears totally inept and impotent. At times it is difficult to tell any substantive difference between establishment Republicans and Democrats.
A Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, had been singled out by conservative Representative Michele Bachmann and four other Republicans calling for a federal investigation to determine if Abedin is using her influence as deputy chief of staff at the State Department to further the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Bachmann, the chairman of the Tea Party caucus in the House, and the other lawmakers point to an online video series from the Center for Security Policy that alleges links between various government officials and the Islamic group. The videos alleged Abedin’s late father and other relatives had connections with the Muslim Brotherhood. Citing this series, the lawmakers wrote letters to various government offices seeking investigations about certain officials who advise or work for the U.S. government for similar alleged ties to the pan-Arab organization.
Senator John McCain recently came to defense of Abedin and now Speaker Boehner has come to her defense, saying that the accusations are “pretty dangerous”. Accusations have never killed a single American citizen but terrorist have killed thousands. Would these two politicians have come to the defense of terrorists who flew commercial jets into the Twin Towers, if someone had asked for them to be investigated prior to the disaster? Is it not the primary job of our elected officials to protect and defend our individual liberties?
How can we defeat Muslim terrorists if we can’t even investigate the possibility that they are terrorists? Needless to say, the support of a person or group that may represent a potential threat to our citizens by John McCain and John Boehner is an Odd Alliance.
