In an article written by the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney, he zeroes in on the women involved in the Benghazi cover-up. In it, Gaffney rightfully identifies Beth Jones, Cheryl Mills, Victoria Nuland, and even Hillary Clinton as women who’ve taken heat.
Conspicuously absent is Hillary’s Muslim Deputy.
Via the Washington Times:
Then, there’s Mrs. Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin. It strains credulity that Ms. Abedin would not be involved in this crisis, given the important role she has played in Mrs. Clinton’s world for more than 12 years. As The Washington Post observed in 2007 — long before Mrs. Clinton became America’s top diplomat: “Abedin is one of Clinton’s most-trusted advisers on the Middle East. When Clinton hosts meetings on the region, Abedin’s advice is always sought.”
What was Ms. Abedin’s advice when her boss responded to the proverbial “3 o’clock call” on the evening of Sept. 11, 2012? For that matter, in light of Ms. Abedin’s long-standing and well-documented ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, we need to know what advice she had been giving the secretary of state about helping the Brotherhood and its fellow Islamists topple relatively friendly regimes throughout the Mideast and North Africa, including Moammar Gadhafi’s in Libya.
Of course, there are plenty of men implicated in the run-up to, events of and efforts to conceal the Benghazi scandal, starting with the president himself. Their contributions to this debacle require thorough investigation. So do those of the women of Benghazi, though, including those peculiarly unimplicated to date: Valerie Jarrett and Huma Abedin.
