Gaffney: The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Obama adminstration
It is not exactly news that the Obama presidency is determined to go to unprecedented lengths to mollify, appease and otherwise pander to what it calls the ‘Muslim world.’ But the question has begun to occur: At what point do these efforts cross the line from a misbegotten policy to one that is downright anti-American - hostile to our values, incompatible with our vital interests and at odds with our Constitution?
The evidence is rapidly accumulating that we have reached that point. Our representatives in Congress must have the courage to rediscover a lost vocabulary, one that is conscious of the fact that subversion of our counterterror institutions - and indeed, our very understanding of the threat we face - is a goal of our enemy in the War on Terror. The danger entailed cries out for congressional oversight and corrective action.
What is needed is a new select committee modeled after the much-vilified, but ultimately vindicated, House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). This vindication is comprehensively documented in Yale University Press’ groundbreaking ‘Venona: Decoding Soviet Espionage in America,’ by John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, and expanded in M. Stanton Evans’ 2009 ‘Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies.’ Members of Congress and their staff can only benefit from reading these studies to have a better understanding of the history of their own institution. Such a panel needs a mandate to investigate in particular the extent to which the Obama administration’s anti-American activities reflect the success of the toxic Muslim Brotherhood in penetrating and subverting U.S. government agencies and civil institutions.
I wish I joking, this getting ridiculous.
