Clinton and Obama’s Bizarre Ideas On Who Is A Threat To National Security

Right before Christmas an interesting national security story broke that was immediately swamped by the usual pop culture and commercial pre-Christmas news about movie openings, stars doing nice things for poor people and the usual material that fills the news when reporters are on vacation, not on the beat. 

But the story of how Dr Gershon Pincus, a successful New York dentist who closed his practice and volunteered for the Navy, only to be denied a security clearance needs to be told, especially in light of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s bizarre pattern of welcoming into the highest levels of government people Huma and Hillaryassociated with the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations. 

As part of a security clearance review, Dr Pincus was interviewed and during the course of his interview, his family connections to Israel were discussed, including that his elderly mother and two siblings live there and that his son tragically died of a drug overdose whilst serving in the Israeli Defence Forces. Dr Pincus has only visited Israel three times in the past ten years, including one visit for his father’s funeral and has no holdings in the country or an Israeli passport. The security investigation concluded: “There is nothing in subject’s background or character that would make him vulnerable to blackmail, extortion, coercion or duress.” 

However, in March, Dr. Pincus was subjected to a second interview in which all but one of the questions related to his connections to Israel. In September, Dr. Pincus’s security clearance was denied, putting a stop to his dental work. The Statement of Reasons explained: “You have weekly telephone contact with your mother and brother in Israel. You added your mother, sister and brother may have contact with neighbors in Israel. Foreign contacts and interests may be a security concern due to divided loyalties or foreign financial interests, may be manipulated or induced to help a foreign person, group, organization or government in a way that is not in U.S. interests, or is vulnerable to pressure or coercion by foreign interests.”  (You can read more about Dr. Pincus’ case through this link to Power Line

So having a relative in Israel is a security risk due to “divided loyalties”? But having a mother, father and siblings involved in the Muslim Brotherhood isn’t? 

We’ve told CHQ readers about the ties to the Muslim Brotherhood Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin has, but a quick review of those ties in light of Dr. Pincus’ case and the ongoing debate over the national security threat posed by Syrian “refugees” and various other Muslim immigrants is in order. 

Some observers have called the Clinton email scandal an unprecedented breach of national security, and it is important to note up front that what triggered the FBI investigation of Mrs. Clinton was an email from Ms. Abedin that included classified information. 

Although born in the U.S., Ms. Abedin spent 16 years of her youth in Saudi Arabia, where her late father Syed Abedin, worked for Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim Brotherhood figure who served as vice president of Abdulaziz University (AU), and had recruited Abedin, to work for the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), a Saudi-based Islamic think tank. 

Ms. Abedin’s mother, Saleha is equally involved in the Muslim Brotherhood. As our friend Andrew C. McCarthy pointed out in an article for National Review back in 2012:

Huma Abedin’s mother, Saleha, who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s female division (the “Muslim Sisterhood”), is a major figure in not one but two Union for Good* components. The first is the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief (IICDR). It is banned in Israel for supporting Hamas under the auspices of the Union for Good. Then there’s the International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child (IICWC) — an organization that Dr. Saleha Abedin has long headed. Dr. Abedin’s IICWC describes itself as part of the IICDR. And wouldn’t you know it, the IICWC charter was written by none other than . . . Sheikh Qaradawi, in conjunction with several self-proclaimed members of the Muslim Brotherhood. (You can access Andy McCarthy's must read article through this link)

So, Ms. Abedin’s Muslim Brotherhood pedigree is well-documented, and well known to Clinton and to other Washington insiders, such as Republican Senator John McCain, who defended Abedin in a speech on the Senate floor when five conservative Members of the House of Representatives called for the State Department Inspector General to look into Abedin’s fitness to hold a high level security clearance while she served as Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff at the State Department. 

When questions were raised about Ms. Abedin fitness to hold a high level security clearance, given her long family history of ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Senator McCain rose to call the questions regarding Ms. Abedin’s family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood “sinister accusations [that]rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma’s family.” 

And the five conservative Members of Congress were smeared in the media as Islamophobes, McCarthyites and worse. 

Except, as Andy McCarthy and others have documented, Ms. Abedin’s family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood aren’t “unsubstantiated,” and neither is the Muslim Brotherhood’s threat to constitutional government. 

In July 2007, seven officials from a now-defunct charity known as the Holy Land Foundation (HLF for short) went on trial for supporting Hamas, the terrorist organization that represents the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. The ensuing court case unearthed a number of key documents, the most important of which was a 1991 Arabic-language memorandum outlining the Brotherhood’s strategic goals in the United States. This includes the objective of:

“Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.” 

The document goes on to identify the Brotherhood’s supporters in this objective, among them such groups as the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Association for Palestine (the precursor to what today is known as the Council on American Islamic Relations), and the multi-university umbrella organization known as the Muslim Students Association. 

We know, just like the Communists of the twentieth century, the Muslim Brotherhood is operating in the United States – and recruiting high level operatives such as Egypt’s former anti-American president, Mohammed Morsi, (overthrown in a popular uprising) who joined the Muslim Brotherhood after being recruited into the Muslim Students Association right here in America. 

And any unbiased observer would have to admit that during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as President Obama’s Secretary of State the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood as disclosed in the Holy Land Foundation trial were advanced at an incredible pace. As Andy McCarthy documented:

Since Secretary Clinton’s tenure began, with Huma Abedin serving as a top adviser, the United States has aligned itself with the Muslim Brotherhood in myriad ways. To name just a few (the list is by no means exhaustive):  

Our government reversed the policy against formal contacts with the Brotherhood; funded Hamas; continued funding Egypt even after the Brotherhood won the elections; dropped an investigation of Brotherhood organizations in the U.S. that were previously identified as co-conspirators in the case of the Holy Land Foundation financing Hamas; hosted Brotherhood delegations in the United States; issued a visa to a member of the Islamic Group (a designated terrorist organization) and hosted him in Washington because he is part of the Brotherhood’s parliamentary coalition in Egypt; announced that Israel should go back to its indefensible 1967 borders; excluded Israel, the world’s leading target of terrorism, from a counterterrorism forum in which the State Department sought to “partner” with Islamist governments that do not regard attacks on Israel as terrorism; and pressured Egypt’s pro-American military government to surrender power to the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood… 

Huma Abedin’s role in the national security disaster that is unfolding in the Hillary Clinton email scandal now begs the question “why wasn’t that IG investigation conducted?”  

But the case of Dr. Pincus begs the question “was any inquiry into whether Ms. Abedin’s family ties rendered her unsuitable for a position that involved access to classified information, especially about the Muslim Brotherhood, ever conducted?”  

Answering that question is of paramount urgency now that it has been revealed that Huma Abedin was at the heart of a breach of America’s most sensitive intelligence while she was Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff at the State Department. 

All federal employees and armed forces personnel take an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…”. 

Can anyone who adheres to the tenets of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic supremacy, which seeks to impose, whether through violence or by stealth, brutally repressive, totalitarian, misogynistic, homophobic, intolerant and anti-constitutional shariah on others – honestly swear to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution? 

A security clearance and access to the highest levels of American military and diplomatic intelligence are not constitutional rights.  

If Dr. Pincus was denied a security clearance to practice dentistry in the Navy, it is time for Ms. Abedin to be put under oath to answer questions about her associations with the Muslim Brotherhood, whether or not she lied during her security clearance process and her role in moving classified material from the secure State Department system to the unsecure Hillary Clinton email server. 

*The Union for Good is an umbrella organization created by Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, which is formally designated a terrorist organization under American law. Sheikh Qaradawi is a promoter of jihadist terror. His fatwas endorse terrorist attacks against American personnel in Iraq as well as suicide bombing — by both men and women — against Israel. He is a leading supporter of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch.
