VEry impressive. Someone should get this stuff out to Drudge and to Rush, and maybe also to some of the key blogs such as LGF and Powerline. Maybe Marc Steyn.

It needs more investigation on the ground, and it needs to be made widely known.

The FBI won’t look at this, because they are basically working for the clintons and have no interest in their treasonous dealings. The Bush administration has shown itself unwilling to investigate this kind of security concern as well. So it needs to be done by news people or by the web.

U.S. TAKES PAKISTAN CHARITY’ OFF BLACKLIST
New York Post (NY)
October 1, 2001
Author: TRACY CONNOR

The White House reluctantly dropped a “charity” from its blacklist of terrorist fronts last week because Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf is on the board of trustees, it was reported yesterday.
The Rabita Trust for the Rehabilitation of Stranded Pakistanis has ties to terror mastermind Osama bin Laden and was slated for inclusion on the list of “most-wanted” organizations.

Before President Bush unveiled the names of the groups and froze their assets, the administration gave Musharraf 36 hours to quit Rabita, intelligence officials told Newsweek magazine.

But Musharraf balked, so Washington - which has been pushing hard for cooperation with Pakistan - quietly dropped the trust from the list, leaving 27 others to face sanctions.

In addition, the magazine reported, two charities funded by the Saudi government and allegedly used by bin Laden to finance his operations were also excluded from the list to avoid embarrassing the kingdom.

The International Islamic Relief Organization and the closely linked Muslim World League have been investigated repeatedly - including after the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya.

Freeze is ordered on more assets in terror probe
Philadelphia Inquirer, The (PA)
October 13, 2001
Author: Mark Fazlollah and Kevin Murphy INQUIRER WASHINGTON BUREAU

The Bush administration yesterday ordered a freeze on the assets of 39 more alleged participants in Osama bin Laden’s network of terror, including three small businesses in Yemen, a north Pakistan money broker, and a Pakistan-based guerrilla group.

New names on the list included several people believed to be senior aides to bin Laden, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Among the people identified on the list as bin Laden aides are men who run the Saudi-based Muwafaq Foundation and the Afghanistan operations of the Canadian-based Human Concern International. Both charities have denied any involvement in terrorism.

(snip)

For the first time, the Treasury Department froze the assets of an operator of a Pakistani “hawala,” which officials say functions much like an underground Western Union. The operator was identified as Haji Abdul Manan Agha, of Al-Qadir Traders in Quetta, Pakistan.

Hawalas, which can transfer money from virtually all parts of the world, operate largely unregulated in the United States and around the globe. Regulations that were supposed to be completed during the Clinton administration have not been put in place.

Others O’Neill listed yesterday include Amin al Haq, bin Laden’s security coordinator; Bilal Bin Marwan, a top lieutenant; aide Saqar al-Jadawi; and Ahmad Sa’id al-Kadr, thought to be an Egyptian and Canadian national. Some of the people and entities named yesterday have been under a United Nations Security Council freeze order since January. Council members - the United States is a permanent member - also are expected to freeze the accounts of those on the council’s sanction list.

After O’Neill announced the new order, key members of Congress questioned why Treasury had not followed the lead of European Union nations, which froze some of the assets in January in accordance with the Security Council order.

Sen. John Kerry (D., Mass.), a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, said there was “a lack of connecting the dots” in the efforts to freeze funds. An investigator familiar with the Treasury list, speaking on condition of anonymity, said accounts sometimes are left open so that investigators can monitor who is using them.

In other developments yesterday, a federal grand jury in Phoenix indicted Faisal al Salmi of Tempe, Ariz., on charges he lied to the FBI when questioned about the attacks, Attorney General John Ashcroft announced.

The indictment alleges that Salmi lied when he told FBI agents Sept. 18 that he did not know Hani Hanjour, one of the hijackers of the American Airlines jet that struck the Pentagon. Salmi spoke with Hanjour several times, the Justice Department said.

Mark Fazlollah’s e-mail address is mfazlollah@phillynews.com.

The Saudi Fifth Column On Our Nation’s Campuses

By Lee Kaplan
FrontPageMagazine.com | 4/5/2004

From Riyadh to Ramallah to the Ivy League, Saudi Arabia’s “Wahhabi Lobby” is funding the goals of radical Islam and undermining America’s War On Terror. The press has reported the Department of Justice’s closures of Saudi “charitable” fronts like the Muslim World League, the Al-Haramain Foundation, the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), and others that raised money for al-Qaeda, Hamas and Islamic Jihad.1 But the government has so far ignored an even larger network of Saudi front groups working to establish the party line on our nation’s campuses. This network is embedded deep within our system of higher education, including many of our most prestigious universities. The Saudis have steadily infiltrated American educational institutions with vast infusions of cash.2 At the same time they look to steer college curricula and public opinion – especially about the Middle East – toward their Wahhabist goals.3

Saudi Wahhabism fuels a fiery hatred for the West’s religious tolerance. It views attempts by the West to promote democratic reforms within its medieval Arab monarchy as an affront to Islam. In other words, it shares the religious and political views of its wayward Saudi son Osama bin Laden. Accordingly, the Saudi royal family has been waging its own quiet jihad of disinformation to advance its goals. The Senate Judiciary Committee recently heard testimony from fellow senators and terrorism experts that the Bush administration has not recognized the dangers posed by Saudi influence. In fact, the kingdom controls most of the Muslim organizations in the United States. For instance, 80 percent of the mortgages on mosques in the U.S. are paid for by the Wahhabi Saudis.

Over the last 30 years, the Saudi royal family has contributed upwards of $70 billion to spread its anti-American and anti-Israeli propaganda. This sum, it has been observed, makes the one billion dollars per annum spent by the Soviet Union during the Cold War pale by comparison.4 To quote the Saudi English language daily, Ain Al Yaqueen: “The kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Fahd Ibn Abdul Aziz, has positively shouldered responsibility and played a promising role in order to raise the banner of Islam all over the globe and raise the Islamic call either inside or outside the kingdom.”

Clinton Taps Newly Active Indian Donors
New York Sun, The (NY)
June 12, 2007
Author: JOSH GERSTEIN - Staff Reporter of the Sun

Senator Clinton plans to take time out of her tightly packed presidential campaign schedule next month to deliver a speech to a large and influential alumni group. The well-connected crowd, expected to number about 4,000, hails not from the Ivy League or one of America’s renowned state universities, but from a school half a world away, the Indian Institute of Technology.
The unusual speaking engagement is just one sign of the growing clout of the Indian-American community and how Mrs. Clinton is harnessing it to a degree previously unknown in presidential politics.

In April, a prominent New York hotelier and restaurant owner, Sant Chatwal, announced that Indian-Americans plan to raise at least $5 million for the former first lady’s presidential campaign, an impressive sum even at the overheated pace of this year’s fund raising. Later this month, almost 1,000 people are expected to attend an Indian-themed $1,000-a-plate dinner for Mrs. Clinton in Manhattan. There are also plans to bring in stars from India’s film industry, known as Bollywood, for another Clinton campaign event later this year.

“Indians have never raised so much money, to the best of my knowledge, and I’ve been living here 24 years,” Mr. Chatwal told The New York Sun.

“We’re all maxing out,” a Manhattan philanthropist and socialite, Meera Gandhi, said.

The intense activity reflects a long-standing affinity for Mrs. Clinton on the part of many Indian-Americans, dating back to the state visit she and her husband, President Clinton, made to India in 2000.

However, the new fund-raising prowess also demonstrates how, after a generation or two of toil, another immigrant community has achieved the financial security and social confidence to venture into the American political arena.

“This Indian community has come of age, where they now understand they have to be involved in the political process,” Ms. Gandhi said. “We are the new wealthy kids on the block, so to speak. We feel we should have a stake in our country’s politics.”

“The stars are aligned, in a way,” an Indian-American political organizer in New York City, Udai Tambar, said. “The importance of money in politics is increasing over time, and at the same time you have a community, the Indian and South Asian community, that has amassed a fair amount of financial wealth.”

Indian-Americans have the highest income, on average, of any racial or national origin group tracked by the Census Bureau. In 2005, median household income for “Asian Indians” in America was $73, 575, which is 59% above the national average. More than a third of Indian-American adults have an advanced degree compared with 10% of the general populace.

Overall, Indian-Americans account for less than 1% of the population, but they aspire to political influence beyond their numbers. In that respect, one often hears politically active Indians suggest that they could be the new Jews on the American political scene. Ms. Gandhi describes her well-heeled cohort as “sort of like the Jewish community was 20 or 25 years ago.”

Some Indians are taking things a step further, actually seeking political advice and common cause with Jewish groups. They have sought organizing advice from the American Jewish Committee and traveled to Israel with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

“The Jewish community and the Indian community have been working very closely together,” a former Agriculture Department official named last month as a national co-chairman of South Asians for Hillary, Rajen Anand, said. “A lot of Jewish congressmen and senators are friends of India. Steven Solarz was the first congressman to raise $1 million by mail from Indian-Americans.”

Both groups share a concern about Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism. While Jews fear attacks on Israel, Indian-Americans, most of whom are Hindu, worry about attacks on India perpetrated by Islamists and about the threat of fundamentalism in Pakistan.

When Indian-Americans in Silicon Valley hosted a $200,000 fund-raiser for Mrs. Clinton last month, she was pressed about why America counts Saudi Arabia as an ally, despite its record of fomenting extreme, “Wahhabi” Islam through religious schools in its country and elsewhere.

Among Indian-Americans, Mrs. Clinton has a clear edge in the early maneuvering for the White House in 2008, but she is not competing unchallenged. Senator Obama of Illinois has also made significant inroads, particularly with the younger set, which finds appeal in his multiracial background. “His consciousness resonates more with the second and third generation,” a Washington attorney backing Mr. Obama, Dave Kumar, 35, said. “When he talks about the skinny kid with the funny name, he’s sort of describing every Indian-American kid who grew up in this country.”

Playing off a term Indians and others use for the number 100,000, South Asians for Obama has launched “One Lakh for Barack.” It aims to line up a large number of small donations for Mr. Obama and gather the e-mail addresses of supporters. “It’s more of a grassroots effort,” Mr. Tambar said.

So far, Republican presidential candidates have not made an aggressive effort to tap into Indian-American money or support, community members said.

“A lot of people are just waiting on the sidelines,” an Indian-American cardiologist who was a major fund-raiser for President Bush, Zachariah Zachariah of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., said.

The head of the Indian American Republican Council, Dr. Raghavendra Vijayanagar, said the Republican Party has had “difficulty associating” with the high-achieving doctors, scientists, and business owners of the Indian community. “They’re signing up with the Democratic Party, when actually they belong to the Republican Party,” he said.

Modest efforts are under way among Republican-leaning Indian-Americans to raise funds for Senator McCain of Arizona and Governor Thompson of Wisconsin.

A Washington lobbyist and international trade lawyer, Sue Ghosh Stricklett, said she is trying to drum up support for Mr. McCain in part because of his leadership on immigration. “I feel legal immigrants contribute in a big way to economic expansion. As an Indian-American, I don’t want to see racist outpourings on the airwaves. Without immigrants, the American economy would be crippled,” she said.

Ms. Stricklett said Republicans would be foolish to dismiss the claims by Indian-Americans that they will raise $5 million for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign. “I don’t think it’s hyperbole,” the Indian-American activist said. “It could happen on the Republican side because you have more people who could write big checks. I just think they need to take the Indian community very seriously.”

Another factor giving Mrs. Clinton a leg up is the presence of two Indian-American staffers at the top echelon of her campaign. Mrs. Clinton’s policy director, Neera Tanden, worked as a policy adviser in the Clinton White House and later as an aide to the then chancellor of the New York City schools, Harold Levy. The traveling aide who shadows Mrs. Clinton at nearly all of her public appearances, Huma Abedin, is of Indian and Pakistani descent.

This could be a "silver bullet" for the eventual Republican nominee. This will clearly not play well in Peoria. It also will not play well in the historically Democrat Jewish community. However, the anti-Hillary ball is now in the court of Obama, Edwards, et. al. If they won't run with it, then we must, but only after the primaries have resulted in her probably receiving her party's nomination.

Yes, just so.

The other group I was thinking could use it would be Republican staffers and campaigners. But it’s too early to do it, from their point of view. They can’t afford to spend money pursuing hillary until they have sewed up the nomination, or come close to it.

Still, this is likely to take legwork and time. You can only do so much looking at printed sources and searching the net.

Who are Huma’s friends and connections? Where is the money coming from? Has she left a trail of writings? And so forth.

The clintons made a gonzo trip to India during clintbilly’s presidency. I forget the exact numbers, but I think they brought a couple of thousand people along with them, and made a special effort to open business relations and establish connections. No American president had done anything like that before, so it must have made a big impression.

India must also worry about China and Pakistan, so they’ll want to get on the right side of hillary as a potential threat as well as a potential ally.

Levy Hires an Aide to Senator Clinton

Schools Chancellor HAROLD O. LEVY has recruited one of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s top aides to be his senior adviser for planning and research. NEERA TANDEN, the policy director and deputy campaign manager for Mrs. Clinton’s Senate race, reported to 110 Livingston Street in Brooklyn this week and settled into an office down the hall from Mr. Levy’s. Ms. Tanden’s résumé also includes work on the presidential campaigns of Michael S. Dukakis and Bill Clinton. She will be paid $110,000 a year.

Aides had hand in Dubai deal
Clinton advisers’ outside lobbying work for firm to take over defense plants accents their awkward position
Newsday (Long Island, NY)
September 14, 2006
Author: GLENN THRUSH. NEWSDAY WASHINGTON BUREAU

WASHINGTON - In the spring, when Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was denouncing the Dubai Ports World deal, a consulting firm run by her top advisers was quietly lobbying for a Dubai takeover of two U.S. defense plants, Newsday has learned.
The Glover Park Group, whose principals include Clinton insiders Howard Wolfson, Joe Lockhart and Gigi Georges, was paid about $100,000 to help the government-owned Dubai International Capital Corp. in its acquisition of the British engineering firm Doncasters Group Ltd.

The four-month lobbying effort apparently didn’t include any contact with Clinton’s office. “They [Glover Park] didn’t have contact with us on either” of the Dubai deals, said Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines.

But it underscores the awkwardness of Clinton’s political kitchen cabinet being housed inside a firm that features one of Washington’s most aggressive and fast-growing lobbying operations.

Clinton and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who helped to sink the takeover of port operations by a Dubai company, supported the Doncasters acquisition, saying it didn’t pose nearly as significant a security threat.

Glover Park’s contract with Dubai was channeled through the Los Angeles law office of Raj Tanden, the brother of longtime Hillary Clinton policy adviser Neera Tanden, according to people familiar with the situation.

Raj Tanden, who represented the emirate’s royal family in its 2005 acquisition of $1 billion in U.S. real estate holdings, declined to comment. His sister didn’t return a message left at her office yesterday.

Neera Tanden served as a congressional liaison for Bill Clinton before moving on to become a key Hillary Clinton campaign aide and the senator’s legislative director.

This ( and the funny money flowing to Hillary! ) is the real story- the "audience plants" and "cheat the waitress" tales are just distractions.

Bump to that!

If the other link I provided doesn’t work, just go here

http://sweetness-light.com/

and look in the sidebar. Google has been deliberately screwing with links lately. The sweetness-light link was on the front page of Google blog news. I don’t think they appreciate that considering their support of Hillary and the left.

Great work, both of you......but waaaaaayy too complicated for this housewife to make heads or tails of, and I think I’m fairly above average on this stuff, but I can’t get a handle on any of it....EXCEPT that Bob Bennett said she has never worn the same outfit twice (creepy, that a high priced man would notice)....and that she’s good friends of Queen NOIR!!

However, the anti-Hillary ball is now in the court of Obama, Edwards, et. al.

We need to get it to their camps. Elizabeth Edwards and Michelle Obama will be all over this.

"...That the totalitarian force pitted against freedom wears a religious makes this civil war among mankind all the more difficult to engage. Loving freedom as we do, it seems reprehensible to deliberate against a religion. But this is no ordinary religion as it demands absolute obedience of all to their religion at the cost of freedom itself." [FReeper Backtothestreets]
