Bachmann looking for Muslim Brotherhood moles
That seems like an unlikely danger. After all, it took the Muslim Brotherhood more than four decades in exile to return to politics in their home country of Egypt.
But a report about the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise in the U.S. by an organization called the Center for Security Policy was enough to draw Bachmann’s attention. She and four other Republican congressman recently sent letters to federal agencies asking them to investigate whether the Muslim Brotherhood was infiltrating the U.S. government. Of particular concern, it appears from news reports, was top State Department aide Huma Abedin.
Sen. John McCain pointedly criticized the paranoia this week (video above). From the Huffington Post:
All this led to an editorial in today’s Sacramento Bee headlined: “Michele Bachmann, have you no shame?” Do they really want her to answer that?
