This interview between Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly and David Horowitz started out by discussing Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the producer of the anti-Muhammad film, and his being interrogated by police.
Note: When our report is released (now scheduled to be on the afternoon of 9/21/12 because certain individuals who are uncomfortable with certain aspects of it have asked for us to extend our release date – Walid did so as a courtesy), Horowitz may completely change his position when it comes to defending Nakoula (yes, that’s a tease because the report’s release has been delayed).
However, that’s not the point of this post. Pay particular attention beginning at the 2:25 mark. This is where Horowitz refers to Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin as a “Muslim Brotherhood operative”. It doesn’t take long for Kelly to throw water on that accusation by refusing to allow Horowitz to elaborate, saying she doesn’t want to ‘get sidetracked’.
Normally, Kelly is very good but this was an obvious and blatant attempt to avoid talking about Abedin. One might be inclined to say that Kelly simply wanted to talk about a different subject. That’d be a valid point if Fox News spent any time at all on the Huma Abedin story. The only time it has done so was when the news supported Abedin (Ed Rollins op-ed that ripped Michele Bachmann coupled with John McCain’s defense of Abedin).
Moreover, to say that Huma Abedin is not relevant when it comes to the matter of U.S. Embassies in the Middle East is ridiculous. She has irrefutable connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and as a State Department official, she represents the Department whose embassies were attacked.
Kelly should have allowed Horowitz to elaborate but she didn’t.
