Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood: Bachmann vs. McCain


Pages: 1 2

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is at the center of a firestorm over her request that the State, Homeland Security, Defense and Justice Departments, investigate potential “policies and activities that appear to be the result of influence operations conducted by individuals and organizations associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.” This is an entirely legitimate call, as Bachmann abundantly illustrated in a 16-page letter to Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN), laying out the reasons for her concerns. Yet even Senator John McCain (R-AZ), who should know better, has upbraided Bachmann, criticizing her for including Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, among those she noted for having Brotherhood ties.

McCain declared in a statement on the Senate floor that “recently, it has been alleged that Huma, a Muslim American, is part of a nefarious conspiracy to harm the United States by unduly influencing U.S. foreign policy at the Department of State in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist causes.”

McCain, brimming with righteous indignation, thundered: “These sinister accusations rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma’s family, none of which have been shown to harm or threaten the United States in any way. These attacks on Huma have no logic, no basis, and no merit. And they need to stop now.”

He explained that the letter Bachmann and several other Representatives sent asking for an investigation into Muslim Brotherhood influence in the government “alleges that three members of Huma’s family are ‘connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.’  Never mind that one of those individuals, Huma’s father, passed away two decades ago.”

However, in her letter to Ellison, Bachmann explained that much more was behind her concern about Abedin than guilt-by-association based on family members: “The concerns about the foreign influence of immediate family members is such a concern to the U.S. Government that it includes these factors as potentially disqualifying conditions for obtaining a security clearance, which undoubtedly Ms. Abedin has had to obtain to function in her position. For us to raise issues about a highly-based U.S. Government official with known immediate family connections to foreign extremist organizations is not a question of singling out Ms. Abedin.  In fact, these questions are raised by the U.S. Government of anyone seeking a security clearance.”

And in Abedin’s case, there are ample reasons for raising these questions. Her father, Syed Z. Abedin, was a professor in Saudi Arabia who founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization supported by the Muslim World League, a Brotherhood organization. Her mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, the Brotherhood’s adjunct organization for women. The Brotherhood itself is in its own words, according to a captured internal document, dedicated to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.”

All that leaves McCain unmoved, for he goes on to assert that “the letter and the report offer not one instance of an action, a decision, or a public position that Huma has taken while at the State Department that would lend credence to the charge that she is promoting anti-American activities within our government. Nor does either document offer any evidence of a direct impact that Huma may have had on one of the U.S. policies with which the authors of the letter and the producers of the report find fault.”

    I wonder if McCain has any financial ties to islamofascist petrostates or NGO's? I'd love to see a list of who
    his top campaign contributors are.

      I agree. The two RINO bros are idiots extraordinaire. Old fart politicians should be assets for the country but concerning these two, they will be the cause of why we have Obama in the WH.

      I propose an amendment to stop running for president while secure in your senate seat. Retire your seat and run, plain and simple. Be brave, show everyone your true intentions without the fallout of losing your prestigious Senate seat.

    • islamophobe

      Again McCain has shown he is not to be trusted to do the right thing. I wonder who bought him off?

  • Randy

    This stinks of McCarthyism at its finest!

    • Larry

      McCarthyism at its finest was busily successfully identifying Soviet agents in US Govt employ.

      Seems that the same thing needs to be done now to dig out the MB operatives in the White House.

      • http://frontpage.com richard sherman

        McCain obviously would have defended the "patriotism" of Alger Hiss, Elizabeth Bentley and Harry Dexter White.

    • WildJew

      As evil an ideology as Communism is, it pales in comparison to orthodox or 'fundamentalist' (shariah-compliant) Islam. When did the Communists murder three thousand innocent Americans at the hand of Communist suicide bombers / martyrs like Islam did on 9/11/ 2001? They called it a cold war with the former Soviet Union. With all the suicide terror attacks, beheadings, bombings, etc., perpetrated on the West, especially around and since 9/11, can you call it a cold war with Islam?

      • johnny911

        When?

        When the commies provided financial support to organizations that pushed for legalized abortion.

        Since then, over 53 million americans have been slaughtered in abortion clinics, and the moral behavior of our young citizens between the ages of 14-35 have spiralled to the bottom of the barrel.

        • IamFluff

          And those religious institutions that seek to control what should be a woman's choice between herself and her conscience are nearly as bad. Christian Sharia should be fought as well as Islam.

          • jay

            you HAVE the right to choose

            How about, in exchange you fight for my right not to have to hand the govt over 50% of my income!!

      • warpmine

        There's no difference at all. Both are political ideologies that oppose freedom.

      • Bridgeport Guy

        Communists murdered an estimated 90 million people throughout the world. I believe the numbers are something like 20 million in Russia, 50-60 million in China, and so on. The fallout from Communism and its evil ideology is still being felt throughout the world, including the United States. For all of his faults, McCarthy did a lot of good for our country because time has proven him to be correct about many Communists and Commie-friendly people rising up the ladder in the government and attempting to whitewash Communist ways of life via movies/entertainment. Do you not think that innocents were killed by the Communists? Like the cartoon "Transformers", many Communist-supporting Americans have changed into Neo-Cons who parade around like gallant patriots while pushing an agenda that is in the best interest of another nation – Israel.

    • Ar'nun

      Of course the difference being that McCarthy went solely on suspicion. In 2004 the FBI found the Muslim Brotherhood manifesto in a suspected terrorist’s home in Virginia, just 20 minute drive from DC. In the manifesto step 3 was to infiltrate the US government at ALL levels and pave the way for Sharia. All the evidence they found in that terrorists home all linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and stopped just shy of naming names. It did however implicate Hugo Chavez and showed evidence of Hezbollah and Hamas activity in Venezuela. Google "Holy land Trial" and see for yourself. The Muslim Brotherhood has been active in the US since the 1930's. Their plans are now starting to come to fruition.

      • Larry

        McCarthy went on information from at least 3 sources, and when they got a look at the KGB archives in the '90s he was proven right.
        As for knowing the methodology of the communists, they had that back then as well.

        The difference is that McCarthy (and people like Bobby Kennedy, who worked for him) took it seriously and went after them. They were still protected by the establishment, both sides, but at least he got a few. Bachmann is going to have to watch her back or they will do to her what they did to Joe.

        The closest equivalent back then to Abedin would have been FDR's in house China specialist, Lachlan Currie, who was a Soviet agent.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        Just starting? Look who is Presdent, Mullah Obama………we have a greater infiltration and
        subversion than has been thought, it could look like Europe here in short order………..Chavez
        and his kind love Islam, tyrant heaven, much better than Marxsm for the megalomaniac.
        It seems they are closer to their goals than anyone thought…………….William

      • gray man

        I'm not sure where you get the idea that McCarthy went solely on suspicion, but it is wrong. He had documentation to back him up.

        • warpmine

          True dat

        • IamFluff

          McCarthy is an easy target and almost a sure sign that the person using his name knows little about history. Conveniently all the good that was done by McCarthy has been buried under a garbage heap of political correctness. Now we are so afraid of being unfair we are willing to lay down. Look to Europe and their spineless stand against political Islam. In France, it's as if they drew their own body outline in chalk and are simply laying down in it.
          On Wednesday, the DOJ (the good folks who brought you fast and furious) got involved in making sure the much contested Murfreesboro Mosque could open for Ramadan. It was a secret hearing which ignored the fact that they continued construction after a court order to stop and over road a court order delaying occupancy. In other words, the Department of Justice has claimed that not allowing Islamists to break American laws is a violation of their religious freedom. Way to go Holder!

    • Steve Chavez

      So true and if Joe was alive today, his first Soviet apologist on the witness stand would be Barack Obama with evidence of Frank Marshall Davis, and all the rest of Obama's COMMUNIST past.

      STANISLAV LEVCHENKO, a Soviet KGB defector, was asked by me on the Jim Bohannan Radio show in the late 80's, and tape to prove it, said that Joe McCarthy had a legitimate concern since the Soviets wanted to infiltrate ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT. The other topic of interest was the World Peace Council, run by the KGB and it's main affiliate, the United States Peace Council run by the Communist Party USA. He said that it was an honor for the Soviet KGB to have their front in "the land of the enemy." Recruitment too was at universities AND BARACK OBAMA WAS WILLINGLY RECRUITED BY THE KGB AND THE CPUSA as evident in Obama's rare, if not only, article he wrote: Google "Obama Sundial 1983." This Soviet apologist piece was on the most radical Marxist groups at Columbia which proves Obama sought out the most radical students as well as "Marxist Professors."

      Since the 80's, I have researched the CPUSA AND CAN PROVE DIRECT TIES TO THE SOVIET KGB with the Peace Councils. In New Mexico, we have Los Alamos Labs, the birthplace of the Bomb, Sandia Labs, Kirtland AFB, the largest nuclear arsenal in the world, Holloman AFB which housed the Stealth Bombers, Laser research including the Airborne Laser, which Obama scrapped, Intel, Cannon AFB which directs drones on the other side of the world, and SPIES AND TRAITORS LIKE THE ROSENBERG'S AND FUCH'S!!!

      Our former Gov. Bill Richardson, the head of DOE and former UN ambassador under Bill Clinton, met with a North Korean delegation for four days in Santa Fe on the second week of becoming Gov.. He also went to North Korea on several occasions and went there to defuse tensions two years ago. After Bill playing tour guide in Santa Fe, with a great view of Los Alamos from his hilltop mansion twenty miles away, North Korea tested their first nuke. Did he give them plans? Material? The okay? Advice? The North Koreans don't even trust their own people BUT THEY TRUSTED BILL RICHARDSON??? WHY?

      OH, IF ONLY JOE WERE ALIVE TODAY BUT I KNOW HE AND REAGAN ARE SPINNING IN THEIR GRAVE SINCE A SOVIET KGB AGENT IS NOW PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!!

      • Indioviejo

        Thank you for saying what needs to be said, unfortunately most people don't care abut communist or Muslim infiltration in our nation. Nor do they care about the power these people yield in our government. We are truly headed down a dark road.

    • degmdpa

      First, McCarthy was right, but the usual msp damage control and eternal obfuscation machine buried it over the last several decades. Second, Bachmann must have hit the bullseye of a powder keg, given the explosion it caused. Third, McCain is damaged goods, has always long been damaged goods, and can no longer be relied on for appropriate behavior. His emotions are clouding his judgement, or there is financial interest at play here. (Remember, he has a history of unpunished, documented corruption.) Go Michelle! America needs many more like you.

      • http://www.facebook.com/dozerfleetprod David Stiefel

        Amen. I have myself been trying to remind everyone that McCain is damaged goods and a traitor and unreliable in any way, shape or form. He's almost as worthless as John F'n Kerry in every respect. And his "war hero" thing? He was betraying secrets during that time, and he is nothing more than a war SURVIVOR. His "hero" status thing is 98% pure hype. Except everyone fell for it.

        For ABC News to take McCain's word for it, rather than, you know….INVESTIGATING every possible lead…which is their JOB…and joining in with the cheer squad in bashing Bachmann just because she's Bachmann?

        Wholly unprofessional for a news organization and wholly irresponsible with a possible national security threat.

        It sickens me that my government treats ME as a national security threat just because my ex-girlfriend is from the Philippines; but lets REAL threats like Huma's mother get off scott free for posign a REAL threat, just because she's Arab.

        You wonder why I'm discussing racial prejudice? That's the entire way Obama, Hillary, and Eric Holder run national security. Anyone conservative is automatically a threat; especially if they're white. Anyone liberal / Muslim / whatever is automatically above reproach, especially if they're brown.

        Filipinos and Israeli Jews get along well with Conservative America. So Obama and Holder piss on both of them every chance they get. The Muslim Brotherhood wants to kill us. So Obama and Holder make love to the Brotherhood and get off to its propaganda every chance they get.

      This stinks of RINOs taking after the Democrats of old. They're protecting the new Alger Hiss (Huma) and trying to discredit the new McCarthy (Bachmann,) as the new Whittaker Chambers (Walid Shoebat) does everything in his power to expose a spy of the New Soviets (namely, the Muslim Brotherhood.)

      Expect pumpkin papers to arrive in 30-40 years proving that Bachmann and Shoebat were right all along about (almost) EVERYTHING, just as the 1995 investigation proved that McCarthy and and Chambers were right about EVERYTHING about Alger Hiss.

    • jay

      Bachmann is trying to investigate actual islamic infiltration into govt, and it is called Mccarthyism.
      What about when william rehnquist was to be appointed to the supremme court. It was argued by the liberals the he be denied this position on the grounds of suspision that he belonged to certain groups in Arizona that had the audacity to be against the incone tax and involvment in the UN. That's worse than Mccarthyism because your not even looking for actual physical ties to some enemy, but banishing someone for simply holding an idea. The right has had to deal with this for decades. You hear about blacklisting reds in hollywood in the 40's, they never had to suffer at all, they just used different names, while the people who testified against the communist were the ones who were truly blacklisted. Even in university, try supporting capitalism, and see what happens to you grades!!

  • y Brnadtstetter MD

    Its hard to distinguish between mc Cain's blindness to BHO's Islamic affiliation

    • Michael

      McCain is a brave and honorable man,psychologically damaged but a loser,political idiot full with hot air indignation. The voters shall relieve him from the Senate duty ASAP

  • WildJew

    John McCain seems (as of late) to be exercising poor judgment in terms of foreign policy visa-vis the Muslim world. Libya and Egypt are some of the latest examples. McCain became the most senior foreign-policy figure to call on Egyptian President Mubarak to immediately step down, leaving an opening for Muslim Brotherhood to fill the void. Lots of people believe McCain is a war hero but this latest bit "naivete" might turn out to be treasonous. Time will tell.

    • mlcblog

      Of late??! The only time McCain had a grasp of reality was in his heroic act when he intervened in the airplane fire on deck and averted death for some fellow airmen.

      I think the time spent in the hole (POW) affected his intestinal fortitude and sense of reality….plus he married money. That, too, can mess up a guy's thinking.

      He's never been a person of much character in my book, a dim bulb it seems.

    • Joseph

      McCain's judgement has always been terrible–it's why he lost in 2008 to the Leftist in the White House now. He should never have been elected to the Senate in the first place. By the way, since when does surrendering to the enemy in time of war make a soldier a hero? That's another mystery to me. My own idea of a hero is Audie Murphy or Sgt. York–but then I guess I'm just old-fashioned…or sane.

    • Sage on the Stage

      Sen. McCain is an elitist, and a phony, who has ridden his war-hero status for all its worth;
      and he's run out of gas with that. He tries to play both sides of the fence–he claims he's for Israel, then demands special treatment for Muslims in the government, that he likes. McCain's highest value is political correctness, and he gave us a glaring example in 2008, when he apologized for saying the Great Zero's entire name in public. THAT gave the election to the Great Zero.

    • Al Viggiani

      People in the public eye are too scared to take a stand. Too afraid. A brave and clear eyed Michele Bachmann dosent hesitate, its the Mother instinct to protect the flock. Some thing McCain dosent get. She has the right to call attention to a possible security threat.

  • Éamonn Gavin

    With all due respect to John McCain's military record, his performance in his attempt to become the President of the United States of America showed that his days of valour, flair, dynamism and guts have been left a long way behind.
    He should now allow those who have the steel and the guts to take on Islamism to do so without his making appeasing comments towards those connected with terrorists, and/or apologists for, terrorism. Éamonn, Dublin, Ireland.

      He does not, and he should be ashamed

    So he believes Huma is a wonderful person. There are many who said Stalin was a wonderful host and worked tirelessly for his people. McCain is an idiot! Would we give a security clearance to the daughter of Putin? With this administration…probably.

    • Larry

      Given who this administration has given security clearances to, there is no "probably" involved.

      Just look up the backgrounds of people like Jarret and Axelrod, to name but two.

      For that matter, if the obamessiah had applied for a Govt job that required a high level security clearance he wouldn't have gotten it.

    • YLEM

      Look at who Huma married. Weiner! That shows that her judgement about people is very off. He's a degenerate and she married him, after knowing what he was up to at the time. How/Why would she stay with him after those twitter pix? If she is accepting him in her life and the life of her child, then she is also a degenerate.

    • Nancy

      I read a laundry list of Huma's discreditation immediately after her husband aired HIS discreditation.
      What has taken ANYONE in WDC so long to address this potential horror? I was horrified and welcome Bachmann attention to the matter. Does anyone in Washington read?

    • Wakt

      I continue to wonder how, and why, politicians and their staffs can be provided with security clearances without the proper investigation as to whether they should have the privilege to have access to classified material – and it is a privilege, not a right! That includes a normal 9 month-1 year period for a full background investigation, and then if granted a clearance, continuing scrutiny and polygraph sessions, etc.

      In my 40 years of having the most sensitive and compartmented of clearances, a full background investigation was done on me which took almost 7 months when I joined the Navy. After retiring 20 years later and getting hired on to do the same job for an NGO (gov't contractor), an initial polygraph test was added, administered and repeated every five years (or as necessary).

  • M Starry

Also, if you have the time, look at the other interviews with the WSI and the White House Insider (WHI) who is a Democrat and who hates Obama and what he's trying to do to America. It will frighten you!

    Yea go ahead and attack McCain , for having the decency and common sense to put aside these ridiculous rumors . Bachman's an idiot and slanderer . There is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER , regarding this woman other than that she has been a loyal American . .
    If it were a Republican President sitting in the White houise , all of you a-holes would have NOTHING to say , no false claims or rumors to spread . And you ALL know it .
    What a bunch of sheeetheads !!!

    Too bad Robert , but you just lost a good deal of your credibiity . Put some distance between you and Geller , she's rubbing off on you man .

Ive had the greatest respect , admiration ,gratitude to McCain for his service to country , but he became a dirtbag in my eyes when he was up to his ears in the Banking Loan Scandal in the 80's and Keating . I do however give him credit for not being a lock-strep moron like the rest of you idiots on this blog …lol….and of all people whose arse to lick ? Bachman ! Who would cut another persons throat to get in the news and invited to the convention . And don't worry about raising my bloodpressure ,[ you are incapable ] just my level of chagrin , for when this bogus B.S. story first broke , I could have predicted word for word what would expectorate out of the mouths of you idiots .

        • Amused

          The only surprise here , is that Bob Spencer ,a highly intelligent man , whose message is extremely important in this country and in these times ,and throw away much of his capital in credibility, would lick the arse of ,and suck up to a hairbrained batshiit crazy broad like Bachman , who no doubt would cut another persons throat to get back in the news and maybe get invited to the convention . After all Romney is actually NOT the official Nominee until it's made official at the convention ..lol….maybe Bachman smells the utter stupidity that has gripped the Republican party visa-vis warped conservatives and teabaggers ,and actually thinks she can pull sometyhing off at the convention ….but then again Arpaio was puting on a pretty good act as a sane person until he joine the birther troupe , now I consider him no less an idiot than most of the posters on this thread.
          Perhaps you Karshi-blah blah , have enough sense to retrieve your brain from up on that same shelf ,and actually think for yoursel , unlike kafir4life , in whom their is no hope since already proving himself a mindless moron quite some time ago .

      No evidence whatsoever….uh duh, that is why Bachmann said it needs to be investigated.

    McCain declared in a statement on the Senate floor that “recently, it has been alleged that Huma, a Muslim American, is part of a nefarious conspiracy to harm the United States by unduly influencing U.S. foreign policy at the Department of State in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist causes.”

    What is there to allege? Huma Abedin is a Stealth Operator – everyone knows this.

        Tell it to the millions of Armenian and Assyrian Christians killed by your Turkish muslim brethren in the early 20th century. Tell it to the million Jews who have been ethnically cleansed from Iraq, Iran, Syria and Egypt through muslim persecution. Tell it to the tens of thousands of kufars slaughtered by Indonesian islamofascists in the 1970's. Tell it to the more than 2 million Hindus slaughtered by muslo-fascists in Bangladesh (also in the 1970's). Tell it to the million odd Christians and animists who were slaughtered and enslaved by your muslim brethren in the Sudan/Darfur in the late 20th and early 21st century. Then take a big swig of your camel urine cocktail and yell allah ackbar.

    John McCain is a TRAITOR. Tragically for America, he is not the only traitor in government. Obama, Clinton and Huma Abedin, show no allegiance to our nation. Their allegiance is to totalitarian, colonizing, expansionist, global Islam.

    It has been alleged that Hilliary likes to surround herself with women of the liking women persuasion. However, if this woman is a Muslim, she is in an influential position with Hillirah, which is in of itself not worrisome, but she should be vetted. Clinton is the Secretary of State, not the mayor of a small town someplace.
    Islam is a threat, but, again, Clinton is noted for the sexual preference of her female staff. It is unlikely that this woman would be an exception, thereby making her amoral under both Christianity and Islam.

She, nevertheless, holds an important position in our government and is married to a Jew with deep connections to the pervert community, on many levels. We all know his story as a disgraced congressman and pathological liar. Laughabley, he now promotes himself as a candidate for mayor of NYC.

      According to the Quaran Jimi Belton, a muslim can break Muslim laws if he/she is practicing jihad against infidels (the United States).

    What does McCain have to do regarding national matters of paramount importance to America's security when he served obama the Presidency on a silver platter? (Read Trevor Loudon's "Barack Obama and the Enemies Within")

    In addition to McCain other RINOs and establishment-Republicans (e.g., Boehner, Jeff Flack, etc.) are thundering against Bachmann. But who deeming himself/herself an American of good birth will listen to them?

    Hillary Clinton is also hurling barrages of flack on Bachmann, but which patriotic American will listen to her?

    Hillary and Huma are two peas of a pod. Hillary is such an Alynksky devout that her graduation thesis at Weslesley College (http://www.gopublius.com/HCT/HillaryClintonThesis.pdf) is a shameless glorification of Alinsky, who in gratitude offered her a job working for him but she rather went to law school, Then Hillary, relatively well-connected as her parents were, chose to do her law-internship with the Oakland (CA) law offices of Robert Treuhfat, who was not just a Marxist-Leninist of the Bolshevik strand, he was a Stalinist-Bolshevik, from his own words and writings. And here Hillary is, the Secretary of State in the Obama regime.

    Who would give any serious consideration to any vouch from Hillary for Huma? The two women are two femmes with a dubious past…and present.

    Fortunately all those vermin and ruderal –starting with obama– will be out by noon, January 21, 2013, when the eviction by the ballot of barack hussein obama off White House premises will be consummated.

  • K Okins

    Seriously…. do you people have any idea how ridiculous you all are. The woman has been vetted and earned security clearance that none of you could ever hope to obtain. These questions and concerns have been addressed and Ms. Bachmann knows that full well. She is an muckraking, fear monger who preys on the uninformed.

  • Bridgeport Guy

    Who's putting Bachmann up to this? Is it AIPAC? It's funny how so many men and women in government positions in the United States have dual citizenship and take actions that are definitely not in the best interest of the United States, but are beneficial to Israel. Many people in the U.S. are waking up and realizing that the greater threat to our existence as a country comes from within, with the perfect example being giving billions of our tax dollars per year away to a country in which a lawmaker just the other day tore up the New Testament on camera for all to see just how much they love Christians.

  • jaymike

    Robert is spot on as usual in matters Islam. The good Senator has long outlived his credibility he deservedly earned as a Vietnam War Hero. Does no good to yell "Fire" in a burning theater if he doesn't speak loud enough to be heard because he is afraid to wake up those asleep next to him. Kind of like his weather vane proclivities when his RINO genes appear….like now. His grating voice, mushy demeanor and wimpy delivery merits a channel change everytime he appears.
    Watched all of the Keating 5 hearings in the early 90's. Have not liked or trusted him since. Had to hold my nose and vote against BHO in 2008.
    He and Hatch are part of the problem in the Senate…..All hat! No Horse!

  • rulieg

    did we need any more proof that McCain is a complete maroon?

  • Starleys

    I am a Conservative. I believe in Justice and Rule of Law. And no inference of wrongdoing should be initated without evidence.
    I do not like what Secretary Clinton supports and will be happy to see her leave office. However,this woman, Huma Abedin,has been in the public eye for over 15 years with nothing but admiration and a sterling reputation from her peers. At no time has her loyalty been in question. By naming her as a person requiring investigation, she has been personally attacked.
    Her family history has never been a secret. To suddenly infer she is a possible threat with no evidence smacks of McCarthyism of the worst kind. We scream when unfounded allegations are made against conservatives, to make an inference like this without evidence is hypocrisy and bigotry.
    We hear people complain of immigrants, and most recently moslem, who fail to integrate into american society. This woman is an American. Born in America. Her history of success and hard work appears the epitomy of the immigrant success story. To attack this person without evidence only further drives others striving to be a part of our society into frustration.
    I, myself, offer my apology and best wishes to the lady.
