A CIA/FBI agent was responsible for creating the first al-Qaeda training manual from classified military sources; he covertly moved up through the ranks undetected until the al-Qaeda spy, Egyptian born Ali Mohamed, was finally discovered. Though arrested in 1998, Mohamed’s whereabouts and legal status remain unknown. The Fort Hood jihadist, Nidal Malik Hasan, benefited from the same faulty screening.
The Jordanian-born “reformed” jihadist Humam Al-Balawi deceived some anxious CIA agents concerning the whereabouts of Ayman al-Zawahiri. As he passed their guard, he detonated a suicide belt, killing the agents. We were the first to translate the sinister plan of this Taliban spy, which was missed by the CIA but was advertised on his Arabic website for the whole Arabic world to read:
When I drive my car at a traffic police station …my surroundings change by a push of a flash button. I will find myself martyred as I drive a booby trapped Laurie with a bomb heading towards the pagan guards…
Why isn’t the CIA monitoring the Arabic words and connections of these people?
Whether it’s the CIA or the military, sophisticated surveillance is proving inadequate and proper background checks of Middle Easterners aren’t being done. Each example serves as another case in point. What makes us think that the State Department updated its virus protection program? Even more disconcerting than Ali and Al-Balawi is Hillary’s “aide” and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin, who has been with Hillary since 1996; we believe she was never properly screened and is well positioned to exploit her American connections for the benefit of Islamic radicals.
To be concerned about Huma’s access to sensitive information is an issue that will most likely garner unsolicited curses from “sensitive” Americans who are enamored with her. These same people ignore this diva’s familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Lt. Col. Robert Anderson’s detailed reports aimed at getting Army intelligence to investigate Ali Mohamed — and have him court-martialed — were also ignored.
Huma is even more potentially dangerous; she can leak State secrets. She is closely associated with her Muslim Brotherhood family and even joined Hillary at an event with Saleha Abedin – Huma’s mother – at Dar El-Hekma University in Saudi Arabia. Also present was a close associate of Saleha – Suheir Qureshi. Qureshi’s name later appeared in several prominent Arab newspapers when it was revealed that she belonged to a list of 63 members of the secret female arm of the Muslim Brotherhood named The Sisterhood.
The full list was later revealed; Huma’s mother is on it. Huma’s brother – Hassan Abedin – also collaborates with Omar Naseef and Sheikh Yousuf Qaradawi, two of the most influential terror supporters in the world.
Yet, as detractors argue “guilt by association,” they unwittingly strengthen our case, since this is what the FBI uses when investigating federal employees: “Character,” “Associates,” “Reputation,” and “Loyalty to the United States” (CARL). This checklist was never applied to Huma, who still associated with her family. Dismissing all this as “guilt by association” ignores a tough question:
