By now, you’ve likely heard about Huma Abedin’s “interesting” background — and no, we’re not referring here to her infamous husband, Anthony Weiner. As we shared previously, as reported by the New York Post, “Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.”
Naturally, many of us are interested to know more about this publication whose editorial content this woman — who if we’re very unlucky, may be future White House chief of staff — oversaw. And the publication’s archives indeed provide some very interesting glimpses, such as this nugget about Hillary’s husband Bill and the woman he famously had an affair with during the time Huma Abedin also was serving as a White House intern. (Interesting…)
As the Daily Mail reports:
An article in the Muslim journal where Huma Abedin was assistant editor claimed Bill Clinton bombed Saddam Hussein to deflect from his Monica Lewinsky affair.
The claim was made in an article published in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, where Abedin was a member of the editorial board – the group of people who decide what is published in the academic journal.
It is the latest bombshell to emerge from the archives of the journal, whose editor-in-chief is Abedin’s mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, an academic in Saudi Arabia.
Abedin, who is not an academic, has been Hillary Clinton’s closest aide since spending time as an intern at the White House, at exactly the time the Monica Lewinsky scandal was unfolding.
But the version of events published in her journal is one which is unlikely to be embraced by the presidential candidate, and especially not by Bill Clinton.
It is outlined in a provocative article published in 2002, and headlined: ‘Arab/Muslim ‘Otherness’: The Role of Racial Constructions in the Gulf War and the Continuing Crisis with Iraq.’
The article was written by Sina Ali Muscati who was the time described as a ‘second year law student’ at the University of Ottawa. His academic credentials were not declared.
Muscati wrote about the 1991 conflict and its aftermath, which saw Saddam Hussein remain in power throughout the 1990s, despite being bombed twice – in 1996 and in December 1998.
‘The crisis with Iraq has also probably benefited Clinton, serving as a good deterrent of attention from personal crises, such as his campaign funding scandals, legislative failures, or the Monica Lewinsky affair,’ he said.
‘By occasionally bombing Iraq in the name of humanity, at least, he has been able to look strong and presidential.’
Clinton’s bombing of Iraq in December 1998 was widely mocked as ‘Monica’s war’.
He ordered four days of strikes by bombers and cruise missiles at the height of his impeachment trial, brought in the wake of his admission that he had had a ‘not appropriate’ relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
Because what better way to deflect from one’s own personal misdeeds as the leader of the free world than to drop a few bombs?
Of course, many observing the matter at the time suspected as much, leading to the moniker ‘Monica’s war.’ This is just another reinforcement, especially given one of the the publication’s editorial overseers’ own personal ties to the White House at the time — and the fact that we are in the midst of the Clintons attempting to, once again, take the White House.
Given the myriad “personal crises” in which Bill’s wife, Democrat presidential nominee Hillary, is continually engulfed, we might have to actually increase military spending to cover them.
Just another shameful example of the Clinton corruption at the expense not just of the American people, but really anyone who happens to get in the way of their own personal agenda.
