Do Embassy Attacks bolster Bachmann’s case?

In the wake of the Islamic attacks on U.S. Embassies in Cairo, Benghazi, and elsewhere continue to reveal lapses in both judgment and security on the part of the State Department, perhaps it’s time to revisit the concerns of Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), et. al. about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. Government.

Though there were five letters sent to five separate Inspectors General (IG) back on June 13th (with a 90-day deadline given to those IG’s to respond with a report; that deadline passed this week), it might be time to take a look at the one letter that has been the most controversial – the one sent to the Deputy Inspector General for the State Department – Harold Geisel – that included a copy that went to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The letter chronicled several items of concern with respect to actions taken by Clinton. One of those concerns is extremely relevant in light of the recent embassy attacks and the real reason behind them (quashing free speech rights). Here is that excerpt:

A succession of meetings with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) – a multinational group that is, like the Muslim Brotherhood, determined to impose shariah worldwide. These are now known as “the Istanbul Process” and are aimed at finding ways to accommodate the OIC’s demands for restrictions on freedom of expression guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, so as to preclude “blasphemy” against Islam and its adherents.

Uh, shall we say, B-I-N-G-O? Restrictions on freedom of expression are the exact reasons for the riots.

Furthermore, Col. David Hunt (Ret.) is pointing directly to Hillary Clinton for making the decision not to assign Marines to Benghazi.

Foreign Policy is reporting that the State Department has essentially shut down when it comes to discussing the Benghazi attack.

PowerLine is citing a ‘well placed’ source with some information about the State Department that doesn’t sound good:

I spoke with a well-placed journalist last night whose sources describe the situation at the State Department in one word: “Chaos.” The working assumption is that several American embassies may have been penetrated, or are vulnerable to attack, because so many of them rely on local residents for staff needs at the embassy, and as such may be in a position to breach security if they have been recruited by Al Qaida.

Penetration of multiple U.S. Embassies IS penetration of the State Department.

That leads us to the most controversial name in the letter from Bachmann, et. al. to the Inspector General’s office at State – Huma Abedin.

Did we say the deadline for the Inspectors General to respond to Bachmann, et. al. is up?
