McCain blasts Bachman for Abedin Muslim Brotherhood accusations

Former Republican Presidential candidate John McCain has blasted Michele Bachmann and four other Republicans for claiming that a top aide to Hillary Clinton is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood.
A letter sent last week to inspectors general of several federal agencies by Bachmann (R-Minn.) and four other Republicans in the House of Representatives suggested that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has made “deep penetration” into the federal government and that those agencies should launch an investigation to uncover the influence of the group's agents.

Among the suspected "agents" named in the letter was Huma Abedin, a deputy chief of staff for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and wife of Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former House member from New York who had to resign after tweeting lewd photos of himself to a 21-year-old woman and lying about it. The letter asserted that three of Abedin’s family members are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and that Clinton’s office has “taken actions recently that have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests."


Cosigning the letters were Reps. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert, (R-Texas), Thomas Rooney (R-Fla.) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.).

At the Senate on Wednesday, McCain (R-Ariz.) called Bachmann’s claims “specious and degrading," according to reports.
All I can say is if walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and swims like a duck, it's probably a duck.

In the end all anyone defending Abedin has concluded is that she's as supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and rejectionist of Israel as are Clinton herself and the entire apparatus of the State Dept. Which on its own isn't anything to be proud of.

As far as Israel is concerned, the Muslim Brotherhood's stance towards Israel is exactly the same as the stance US holds.

It doesn't matter if Weiner has links to the MB.

In any case, the US knows it's best having the Muslim Brotherhood as an ally.

When did the US ever say the Muslim Brotherhood is the enemy?
