The Pakistani spy who went undetected in D.C. for 20 years was deeply involved with U.S. Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
In Part One, I explored the court documents in the case of Ghulam Nabi Fai, the executive director of the Kashmiri American Center (KAC) who admitted in a 26-pg Statement of Facts at the time of his plea deal last December that he was an influence agent working for the Pakistani intelligence service, the ISI. He penetrated the halls of Congress and successive administrations over a 20-year period to help shape U.S. foreign policy in Pakistans favor.
As noted in the affidavit by FBI Special Agent Sarah Webb Linden that was the basis for the criminal charges filed in federal court against Fai, he was in constant communication with his ISI handlers, exchanging more than 4,000 emails between June 2008 and his arrest in July 2011.

The operation was coordinated by Zaheer Ahmad, a U.S. citizen living in Pakistan who was charged along with Fai in the case.

His articles appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Washington Times, Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Plain Dealer, Baltimore Sun, and many other foreign policy journals in the United States and around the world.
Not only did he have the political establishment fooled for 20 years, he had the media establishment snookered as well.

I bet he never got as high up as Body Girl to the Secretary of State.
Forget State. There’s a whole population of Pakistanis at MacDill acting as translators for CentComm. How many of them are working for Pakistani intel or worse the Tallies?
Barry Soetoro made a [as yet unexplained] trip to Pakistan. What were he and the Pakis up to?
The anti american democratic left most likely covered up for him. Paid all his expenses. And provided unlimited access to top secrets. All in the name of diversity, globalism and one world order.
And Congress is asleep at the wheel.
