U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann's claim that Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, deserves the same censure in Congress that Joseph McCarthy received for his witch hunt for Communists 60 years ago.
Seattle (WA) Times
(July 19, 2012) U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann often plunges recklessly into controversy, but her latest sally is most damaging: an attack on the reputations of an individual and five federal-government departments.
The Minnesota congresswoman says the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the departments and is working internally for the demise of the United States. Bachmann singled out Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, saying members of her family had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is dedicated to spreading Islamic law. Some of its members have been been linked to terrorist groups.
