It is still unclear whether Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, has been properly vetted or not. This issue rose to prominence after Michele Bachmann and four other congressional representatives expressed concerns about Huma’s family’s longstanding connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Barack Obama voiced strong support for Huma Abedin during the annual iftar dinner, but Walid Shoebat has asserted that President Obama needs to “refute the facts [that have been presented about Huma Abedin] and provide answers that are void of rhetoric.”
According to Cliff Kincaid, all this controversy could be resolved “by demanding access to Abedin’s Standard Form 86, which she was supposed to fill out before getting her State Department job.” Did Huma Abedin disclose her family’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood? How did she fill out the 127-page lengthy questionnaire when she applied for this national security position?
In Section 13A of the Questionnaire for National Security Positions, under “Employment Activities,” did Abedin acknowledge that she was an assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, an offshoot of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), founded by Abdullah Omar Naseef, secretary general of the Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia, “perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood organization in the world”? The Muslim World League provided funds to Osama bin Laden and “is an observer member of the Organization of Islamic Conferences, an inter-governmental coalition dedicated to ‘liberating Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa from Zionist occupation.’”
Did Abedin admit that she was a member of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) (see below)? The MSA is a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. It resulted from Saudi-backed efforts to establish Islamic organizations internationally in the 1960s, for the purpose of spreading its Wahhabist ideology across the globe.
