Whom the President praises 1

This is from the MailOnline:

President Barack Obama called Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, an ‘American patriot’ at a White House Iftar dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

His praise came after a group of Republican lawmakers accused her of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist political organization.

‘She has been nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear,’ Obama said.

‘The American people owe her a debt of gratitude because Huma is an American patriot and an example of what we need in this country – more public servants with her sense of decency, her grace and her generosity of spirit.’

“And her intimate connections with the Muslim Brotherhood,” he did not add. But see our post immediately below, The State-whisperer.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent of Hamas, which is on the US government list of officially recognized terrorist organizations.
