Earlier this month, Gehad el-Haddad, a senior adviser and media spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood was sentenced to life in prison in Egpyt. The son of Morsi’s former foreign affairs adviser Essam el-Haddad, he was the main English-language spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood.He is also a former employee of the Clinton Foundation.
In 2012, Gehad El Haddad divided his time between volunteering for the Muslim Brotherhood and heading the Cairo office of the Clinton Climate Initiative, but later that year began to work full time for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Both Gehad El-Haddad and his father, Essam el-Haddad, were the closest advisors to Mohammad Morsi.As Liberty News Online says, “One thing is clear: Essam and Gehad aren’t just close family members; they were close collaborators. Essam had another partner in crime as well. His name is Ayman Ali. Via El-Fagr (translated): Essam Haddad and Ayman Ali worked as former advisers to the president, Mohamed Morsi, and are in a high-security prison (Al-Aqrab) in Egypt. Both are charged with major espionage with foreign countries.”
“As for its record in funding terrorism, the el-Haddad family has the equivalent of a terrorist rap sheet, via Estkal (translated): “Al-Haddad family worked with the International Islamic Relief Organizations (IIRO).” In August 2006, the Treasury Department also designated the Philippines and Indonesian branch offices of the IIRO as terrorist entities “for facilitating fundraising for al-Qaida and affiliated terrorist groups.”
Um, this could be a problem for Mrs. Clinton, don’t you think? In the best case scenario, it means she and her staff are pretty lousy at vetting potential employees. And in the worst case?Well, in the worst case, she’ll be elected president.
