The fact that this woman
is allowed out in public isn’t on a permanent thorazine drip sits on the House Intelligence Committee should be a crime:
Rep. Michele Bachmann defended her attempt to root out “deep penetration” by the Muslim Brotherhood into the U.S. government Friday, writing a 16-page letter explaining and expanding on her initial charges against Huma Abedin and others of being terrorist sympathizers.
In the new letter, Bachmann questions why Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, was able to receive a security clearance despite having family members that Bachmann believes are connected to the Brotherhood.
But perhaps the biggest concern with her letters is the fact that we know about them at all. If Bachmann were genuinely concerned about terrorist infiltration in the U.S. government, one might assume that she would keep her requests for investigations secret so as not to tip off the potential infiltrators. Instead, she sent her letters to the media and then went on conservative radio host Randy Rios’ show to talk about it. In her response letter, she hints that she has access to secret information as a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence supporting her claims but can’t make it public.
This nitwit would have gotten kicked out of every unit I ever served in for failure to follow basic security protocols – how in the hell does she rate a seat on anybody’s Intelligence Committee?
