Is that old windbag still on the air?
The State Department has a long, long history of welcoming America's enemies into its ranks.
In Islamic relations and politics there are some dark forces that mingle in high places. Abedin’s organizations, however, have been positioned at least in the past against terrorism.
Frankly, there is not much there, “there”, here in this column anyway, but for the straining for it.
Not that something might arise, but not yet.

Perhaps more foreboding are the connections Saleha Abedin has with the U.S. State Department. In addition to being a Vice Dean at Dar El-Hekma College in Saudi Arabia, Saleha was also one of the institutions founders, along with Yaseen Abdullah Kadi a designated terrorist by the U.S. and members of the bin Laden family. Yaseen Abdullah Kadi was earlier referred to by the press as Yasin al Qadi:

EXCLUSIVE: Obama OIC Envoy Meets With Qaradawi Associate In Mauritania; Abdallah Bin Bayyah Part Of Antisemitic Religious Body
(July 28, 2012)
SNIPPET: The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has announced that Rashad Hussain, President Obamas Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, has attended a meeting in Mauritania that was hosted by Abdallah bin Bayyah, an associate of Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi.
SNIPPET: For a short time, Rashad Hussain was embroiled in controversy after the GMBDR reported both his associations with the US Muslim Brotherhood and remarks that he had made in 2004 about the prosecution of convicted terrorist Sami Al-Arian that were later deleted from the publication that reported them. Mr. Hussain at first denied remembering that he had made the remarks calling the prosecution politically motivated persecution but later, after an audio tape surfaced documenting the remarks, he acknowledged the comments but said that they had been ill advised. Mr. Hussain also admitted that he had complained to the publication about being misrepresented after the remarks were first reported but that the publication had deleted them on their own volition. The remarks did not appear to have been deleted until after Mr. Hussain had been appointed White House Counsel. (for an analysis of these events, go here). Since that time, Mr. Hussain has appeared at numerous events sponsored by the US Muslim Brotherhood including those held by the Center for the Study of Islamic and Democracy (CSID), the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago, the Council for the Advancement of Muslim Professionals (CAMP), and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). A Hudson Institute report identifies both the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) as elements of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Previous posts have discussed the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood ties of the other organizations.
