Remember last week when Hillary Clinton’s car was attacked in Egypt?
It seems to be because Glenn Beck pparently told his minions that the family of Clinton’s longtime aide, Huma Abedin, was connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, and that the U.S. backed the Muslim Brotherhood in the Egyptian elections. The lie was promptly picked up by wingnut websites and amplified by Crazy Michele Bachmann (who is, after all, on the House Intelligence committee), and thus it traveled around the globe.
Bachmann and her colleagues — Reps.Trent Franks (Ariz.), Louie Gohmert (Tex.),Thomas J. Rooney (Fla.) and Lynn A. Westmoreland (Ga.) — wrote to the inspectors general of the departments of Homeland Security, Justice and State asking that they investigate the U.S. government’s involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood.
The letter to the State Department mentioned Abedin, citing a Web site maintained by the Center for Security Policy that calls her one of “six Islamist sympathizers” who have “achieved positions within or advisory roles serving Team Obama.”
These people are dangerous. They should be censured.
UPDATE: Bachmann insists she’s right.
