Time for a Counter-Intelligence Damage Assessment?
By Harold Hutchison
An immediate counter-intelligence damage assessment may be necessary, a major newspaper has declared in an unsigned editorial.
Investor’s Business Daily made the call in a editorial that ran on Friday, citing a number of individuals with ties to the Moslem Brotherhood that hold positions in the Obama Administration. One of the individuals had “praised Egyptian jihadist and Brotherhood leader Sayyid Qutb, a key mentor of Osama bin Laden” according to the editorial.
The editorial went on to note that another advisor was the president of the Islamic Society of North America, “an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror finance case in U.S. history.” In light of those details, the editorial asked, “Why is this man telling the White House and FBI how to conduct terrorism investigations?”
Given the connections, the editorial urged an investigation by Congress, “If the Obama administration will not properly vet the advisers it plucks from the Muslim community, Congress has a duty to step in and do its job for it.”
“Given the degree of infiltration, a counterintelligence damage assessment should be ordered,” the editorial concluded.
