Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post conducted a particularly inept attempt at “fact checking” reports that Clinton chief of Staff Huma Abedin has “ties” to the Muslim Brotherhood. Kessler’s attempt rests on essentially four claims:
1. That Huma Abedin held a position as Associate Editor for the Journal for Muslim Minority Affairs for twelve years, but never did any actual work.
2. The Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is not regarded as “radical” by its own board of advisors and selected “experts.”
3. That the Journal’s founder Abdullah Omar Naseef’s ties to World Muslim League is irrelevant.
4. That the World Muslim League could not have been a Saudi-funded operation and a Muslim Brotherhood-led organization at the same time.
