Faith, National Security and the Election
I noticed something today. There’s a return of visible action from faith-based US organizations in the political realm.
First there was this move by Catholics to stand with Romney/Ryan: a flyer was distributed in churches over the weekend.
Second point. My social conservative friend (and Michele Bachmann backer) from South Carolina, Javan Browder, notes:
High ranking former Army General William Boykin has now confirmed that indeed the Muslim Brotherhood has gained access to every high level of the U.S. Government, including the Pentagon and Department of Defense. Even Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top aide – Huma Abedin has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.
General Boykin is a well respected and highly experienced expert in the field of terrorism and intelligence. He was a member of the freshmen class of the elite Delta Force at its beginning, later going on to command the force in combat. Boykin also served in the CIA and participated in many secret operations worldwide. During his last four years in the Army he was Deputy Secretary of Defense for Intelligence.
On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt….
Altalib, Barzinji and IIIT were also all listed in funding statements from the Center for Constitutional Rights as major donors giving in the $25,000 to $49,000 range.
CCR is the umbrella group providing more than 500 pro bono lawyers to Gitmo detainees. They have regularly dismissed national security concerns about Gitmo recidivism as “irresponsible … scare stories.” That’s exactly what they did after one of CCR’s clients, Libyan terror leader Abu Sufian bin Qumu, was sprung in 2007.
Fast-forward five short years. Qumu is now the lead suspect in the 9/11/12 attack on our U.S. consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the murders of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, consular official Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs/private security contractors Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. In the wake of this month’s terrorist attacks on our Egyptian embassy, Libyan consulate and Afghan air base, the jihad helpers at CCR are stone silent.
UPDATE: Jackie Wellfonder writes about the president of Iran and his disgusting, Yom Kippur greetings to our ally, Israel.
The people need to take notice.
