Is Huma Abedin the New Alger Hiss?
spectator.org ^ | 24JUL12 | By Jeffrey Lord

Washington GOP Establishment hits Bachmann for fighting Muslim Brotherhood.

Is Huma Abedin the new Alger Hiss?

Is Huma Abedin to the Muslim Brotherhood what Alger Hiss was to the Soviet Union?

Why are Republican Senator John McCain, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rodgers (R-MI) acting in the growing Abedin controversy as Washington Establishment Democrats of the 1940s did in the Hiss episode? Which is to say, writing off the dangers of a foreign enemy whose goal is to infiltrate the U.S. government -- because, well, the people in question are part of the Washington Establishment?

And last but certainly not least, why is the Republican Establishment pursuing a losing strategy in the war against Islamic radicalism? Is it returning to the losing strategy it pursued during the Cold War -- a strategy that was overturned over Establishment opposition by Ronald Reagan's victorious "we win, they lose" strategy?

These questions arise because of McCain's vehement attack on Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Bachmann, along with four other conservative House members (Louis Gohmert of Texas, Trent Franks of Arizona, Thomas Rooney of Florida and Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia), has written a series of hotly controversial letters.

What did Bachmann and the others do to infuriate McCain? And draw a rebuke from Boehner and Rodgers?

Hmmm... Just thought of something troubling. If this woman has contacts in the Muslim Brotherhood, and access to people in the Administrations national security circle, could she be the leaker? Tin foil hat idea?

McCarthy makes clear that no one is accusing Abedin of a crime. Bachmann certainly isn't accusing her of a crime.

Then she's not "the New Alger Hiss," is she?

Her position in State Department, The administration encouragement and participation in the Arab Spring and all the countries that are beginning to fall into the control of the Muslim Brotherhood certainly seems fishy.

Yes. And the elitists are having another Hiss-y fit trying to shield one of their own.

I understand the question to be is she the new Hiss vis-a-vis the reaction to people raising questions about her trustworthiness.

I understand trustworthiness to mean simply, shouldn't she be vetted like anyone else in her position.

I remember the Hiss tumult ever since the 1950s.

IMO, yes she is the new Hiss.

Alger Hiss wasn't that homely.

Why is it fishy? W hoped for an "Arab Spring" type movement during his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There's nothing "fishy" about it.

Should we be surprised that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to get a seat at the table? No. There's nothing "fishy" there either. Should we throw a fit because those people elected members of groups we don't like? No. That's not how diplomacy works.

McCain and Boehner and many others are absolutely right to not let this Media-spun communist witch hunt mentality define the Republican Party in a critical election year.

The committee's own chairman takes a dim view of the trouble these five are causing.

I'm not surprised Bachmann's involved after watching her campaign.

We have a broken system, no doubt about it, because no question can be asked, however legitimate, without the Democrat party and its media accomplices demonizing any questioners as racist bigots in an effort to divide America further and capture ground in the voter demographic battle.

Maybe we'd have been better off politically if Al Gore won in 2000 and 9/11 happened on his watch.

When Hiss was called to testify before Congress no one was accusing him of a crime, either. It was only when he perjured himself before Congress that he was accused of a crime. Of course, the Venona decrypts had him dead to rights, so the intelligence community was on to him, but prosecuting him for espionage would have blown the Venona operation, and we were sure hoping that the Soviets would make a mistake like again.

Did Huma pass a security clearance, just as all State Dept. employees? I don’t see how. Don’t they ask questions about friends, family and acquaintances and their involvement in questionable activities?

The comparison is not perfect. I am unaware of communist influence in the GOP. However, there are Muslim Brotherhood affiliated people with far too much influence in the GOP. 9/11 has changed nothing. American blood is cheap. Breaking social rank, class consciousness, and political correctness is expensive.

That's precisely the parallel.

And all of Leftdom (including Manchurian John) are whining, "Have you at last no decency, sir?"

Huma's mother is BFF with the Egyptian ruler, while Huma is Hillary's 48-piece socket set.

Enemy in the gates, feeding classified information to the enemy and subverting U.S. foreign policy.

RE: "It was HCUA, only the leftists/communists say it as HUAC"

The House Committee on Un-American Activities, correct! and it is important.

I do not recall any recent conservative radio show emphasize that fact. They all just say HUAC or un-American activities (committee) which is exactly what the CP/USA wanted.

CP/USA invented the pejorative "McCarthyism" if I remember correctly.
