Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has received sharp criticism from both Republicans and Democrats for her recent suggestions that Huma Abedin, a top aide for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (which, until recently, I thought was just the title of a Middle Eastern coming-of-age film).
Of the allegations against Abedin, Brotherhood leaders in Egypt say: Who?
“I haven’t heard these rumors, but they strike me as ridiculous,” said Ahmed Al Nahhas, a long-time Brotherhood activist and leader in Egypt’s second-largest city, Alexandria. “Surely the United States government selects its employees very carefully.” ...
“The Muslim Brotherhood can’t even penetrate the Egyptian government,” said a Brotherhood leader in Egypt’s Daqheleya province, Ibrahim Ali Iraqi, in response to the accusations his group had infiltrated top US agencies.
