Yesterday, AFLC Advisory Board Member and former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy provided new details about the Obama Administration’s alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups at an event in Washington hosted by the Center for Security Policy and its President, Frank Gaffney, who also sits on AFLC’s Advisory Board. You can watch the video of McCarthy’s speech below:
McCarthy followed up yesterday’s speech with an article published in National Review, where he addressed several issues raised by Dana Millbank, the liberal columnist for Washington Post, who wrote an article criticizing McCarthy’s speech. Millbank claimed that Huma Abedin, the Muslim aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is a victim of “guilt by association”, and that McCarthy is perpetuating baseless allegations.
