    Sure. What a surprise is it that apdst of all people has not only compared white nationalists to this woman - who we have NO EVIDENCE of ever having been a member of the Muslim brotherhood but he's also made the argument that Muslims as a whole should be investigated because of 9/11. I guess it's more of the false pretence he likes to show off regularly. Any minute now, he'll be telling us all how he's a black Muslim born in Cairo so any positions of his that are attacked are just hate on his Conservative values and not his blatantly ridiculous comparisons.
    I never compared white supremacists to this woman. But, I consider the source.

    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.

    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."

    Sorry, but NONE of those things are even remotely constitutional encroachments. One of the main jobs of any chief executive (POTUS or corporate CEO) is to deploy the limited resources in the manner he best sees fit to achieve the objectives of the organization. If the POTUS had unlimited resources, he could do a whole lot more than he can when people want to limit government. There are lots of laws on the books, they can not all be enforced, nor do you really want them to be... Presidents, governors, mayors, sheriffs, police chiefs, presidents of homeowners associations all pick their battles. It is the very nature of their jobs to make these decisions.
    Any further discussion along these lines really needs to be moved to another thread. I have no problem discussing them, but it is really not related to the thread here. My original post was made because my Representative was named. He was named by a media article that had the intentent (IMO) of attempting to rouse opposition to him. I simply said that I would not rise against him and why. My second post was to partially agree with a response and to explain why I believed there were extenuating circumstances in this case.

    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.

    wait, I thought the mere pretense of a link (that her brother may simply work with some fundamentalist, who it was never mentioned were active members of the MB)n was grounds for suspicion and an investigation?

    seems your standards here are a little more than self-serving

    Re: Top Republicans denounce attack on Clinton aide

    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:

    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."
    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"?

    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.

Do you realize Ayman Zawahari (the current head of Al Qaida and 9-11 mastermind) was a member of the brotherhood in Egypt and was part of the Anwar Sadat assasination?
    With Huma's mother being an advocate of Sharia law its not out of the realm of possibility that she has the same beliefs.

    In alot of ways Sharia law is worse than Naziism but it appears that many Liberals are just fine with this type of person being influencial in our goverment. Maybe they are fine with Sharia as well.

    Personally I'm glad we have people with the guts to speak out against the current regime and applaud them for doing so.

    God knows how many more Americans will die because of Liberal policies like the one where the FBI was afraid to investigate Major Hassan because of political correctness & the fear of being labeled a biggot even though there was plenty of evidence that he was a radical. Alot of good Americans died because of these damn fools in the Obama administration and to be fair useful repewbican idiots like John Mcain as well.
    There blood is on your hands IMO.
    Since you responded to me personally, are you actually accusing me personally of having blood on my hands because I abhorr bigotry???

    Sure you didn't. Which is why you brought them in a comparison.

    Welcome to the real world.
    Your claim is that Bin Laden and Bush weren't connected. That is demonstrably false as their families had tangible economic ties. When will you ever learn to stop making **** up?

    Kind of like the crazies around here who call him Hussien among other things. Insanity never shows much reason.

    Here is the letter she sent. WOW!: http://bachmann.house.gov/uploadedfi...p._ellison.pdf
    Exactly what part of her letter do you dispute?
