In January, Hillary's top aides discussed how to respond to a forthcoming Vanity Fair article about Abedin's role and enormous influence with Clinton.
Nick Merrill emailed Hillary: "As discussed, we don't know what the tone of the piece will be, but I wrote some shell point, below, that we can adapt as need."
The email included a list of talking points that include a bullet point on the subject of "Muslim Brotherhood Accusations" regarding the belief in some right-wing circles that Abedin, whose family has links to the terror-funding Islamic group in Saudi Arabia, is a secret terrorist:
To perpetuate baseless accusations about someone's faith to sell magazines is reprehensible, and frankly surprising coming from Vanity Fair. For fringe partisans to make these claims is bad enough. But years later, after being denounced by everyone from John McCain to Marco Rubio, for a magazine to pick up and give column inches to this nonsense is as irresponsible as it is baseless.WikiLeaks also revealed how the campaign prepared talking points on Abedin's personal life about her now estranged husband, Anthony "Carlos Danger" Weiner, and his perverted exploits on Twitter. (See also Bill Clinton and Google "The Energizer Bunny.")
Huma's personal life is just that, her personal life. She is a wonderful mother which she balances with a very impressive career. I don't know how she does it all, but she does, with grace and humility.And a full-time nanny, I would imagine.
But what about the truth in regard to who Huma Abedin is? In an August 22, 2016 article in Jihad Watch, it discusses how Hillary's top aide published anti-American articles when she worked as Assistant Editor at her mother's radical Muslim journal, the "Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs."
The article blames the United States for 9-11 and blamed women for violence.
Huma's father, Syed Abedin, a Muslim scholar, also had a questionable background.
An article in the Washington Free Beacon discusses how he outlined his views on Sharia law and his belief that the Western world has made Muslims "hostile." Not much is spoken about him, but he was tied to the Saudi government until his death in 1993 and was a strong advocate of Sharia.
Abedin's Muslim Brotherhood (MB) connections have been fully exposed by Andrew McCarthy, and although the facts are public, they are mostly ignored. Both parents are members of the MB and she has worked closely with Abdullah Omar Naseef, who financed al-Qaeda when Hillary was secretary of state.
Huma and Naseef overlapped while she worked at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.
So the WikiLeaks leak leaked nothing new about Huma, but perhaps it will finally bring attention of her background to the public that wasn't exposed to it in the liberal media.
