Binladin family disowned Osama bin Laden
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Days after the terrorist attacks, 11 members of the Binladin family boarded a chartered jet and left their homes around Boston. Abdullah Mohammed Binladin, 35, a half brother of accused terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden, stayed behind. But since Sept. 11, he has stopped using credit cards and avoids strangers who might hear his name and become upset. He has also suspended his hobby of flying single-engine planes, fearing the reaction he might get. "Our name is being hijacked," he told the Boston Sunday Globe.
USATODAY.com - Binladin family disowned Osama bin LadenWelcome to the real world.Yesterday, Ambrose Carey, the brother of the British woman who married Salem, described the family as "decent and respectable" people who had not been in contact with Osama since the early 1990s.
"He brought enormous shame on the family and for that he has been ostracised," he said. "My sister leads a quiet, unflashy existence in a beautiful house in Cairo and, along with the rest of the family, I know she is appalled at what has happened."

My apologies to those who think my responses went to far outside this thread. You are correct and I should of asked to move the discussion, or moved it myself, elsewhere after my second post.

This entire issue over the family ties of Sec. Clinton's Girl Friday is a false-flag waved by Michelle Bachmann w/her loose connections between members of Huma Abedin's family and the Obama Administration. After getting some heat not only from members of her own party but also from members of the House Intelligence Committee, Bachmann is now trying to walk back her comments on the matter.
Where she was once adament about the potential "Jihadist/radical Islam in our midst at the highest levels of government," she's now trying to walk back her comments and doing a terrible job of it. From theHill.com:
Really? If all Rep. Bachmann was doing was "asking a question" concerning how far did the background check go prior to issuing Huma Adedin a high-level security clearance, all she had to do was request a copy of Adedin's background check from State and be done with it. Why go through the partisan publicity stunt if all you were doing was "asking a question"?Bachmann defended her letter during an interview with Glenn Beck on his radio show Thursday, saying that while she "did not infer that [Abedin] is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood or that she’s working on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood," that she was still concerned Abedin may not have been properly vetted to receive a security clearance.
"Did she have to go through the same sort of process that anyone else has to go to? Did they check the boxes?" Bachmann said. "Because if the State Department breaks American law to bring a terrorist into the White House, a member of a terrorist organization, it certainly is conceivable that maybe they looked the other way on issuing the security clearance. That’s all we’re doing is asking a question."
The answer is obvious: drum that beat of fear of Islamic fundamentalist into the public consciousness. Nevermind that it was the previous Administration that also pushed the idea of spreading democracy upon the Muslim world. Well, the NeoCons got their wise. Only, now they can't handle the virtues of the very democratic process they helped usher in. You can't have it both ways here, folks. You can't insist on imposing democracy upon a people in a foreign land but then get pissed when the people held open elections but the type of government THEY elected isn't exactly the kind of government WE wanted.
