Interesting. I see you appreciate the "kitchen sink" approach as well.
What does this have to do with Huma Abedin, the nominal topic of this post?
Other than giving a bigger view of the stage she is playing her role on, it doesn't.
I posted it to help you out with your uncertainty about how gun control fits in.
Did it work? Are you still unsure?
Abdullah Omar Nasseef (Arabic: عبدالله عمر نصيف) (born 5 July 1939 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia) is a Saudi chemist and geologist. Nasseef has a Ph.D degree from Leeds University in the United Kingdom. He is a professor at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, and serves as Chief Scout of the Saudi Arabian Boy Scouts Association, which he joined in 1956. He is chairman of the World Muslim Congress, chairman of the founding board of Sahm Al-Nour Trust, and Former Secretary General of Muslim World League. In 1983, Nasseef was awarded the Bronze Wolf, the only distinction of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, awarded by the World Scout Committee for exceptional services to world Scouting.
A financial arm of the Saudi-sponsored Muslim World League, Rabita Trust is a now-defunct Pakistan-based charity whose professed purpose was to give aid to Afghani refugees in Pakistan. Its additional objectives were to disseminate Islamic culture, explain the teachings of Islam, and “defend” Islam “in a manner that safeguards the interests and aspirations of Muslims, ... refutes false allegations against Islam, and repels inimical trends and dogma which the enemies of Islam seek to exploit in order to destroy the unity of Muslims and to sow seeds of doubt in the Muslim brethren.”
Rabita Trust was established in 1988 by the late Pakistani President Zia-ul-Haq and the Muslim World League’s former Secretary-General Dr. Abdullah Omar Naseef. Rabita Trust was scrutinized by the U.S. Senate Finance Committee based on evidence that it knowingly funded terrorist groups. The organization was directed by Wael Hamza Jalaidan, an al Qaeda founder and chief of logistics, until the United States and Saudi Arabia moved to close it down with Pakistani assistance.
Because Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, a U.S. ally, was a member of Rabita Trust's Board of Directors, the U.S. initially resisted adding the group to its list of terrorist-sponsoring charities. But under U.S. pressure, Musharraf eventually resigned from the Board, at which point the United States designated Rabita Trust as a “Global Terrorist Entity” and froze its assets on October 12, 2001.
“These sinister accusations rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma’s family, none of which have been shown to harm or threaten the United States in any way,” McCain said. “These attacks on Huma have no logic, no basis and no merit. And they need to stop now.
This quote is partially accurate as the beginning section is taken from Washington's First Annual Message to Congress on the State of the Union. However, the quote is then manipulated into a differing context and the remaining text is inaccurate.
So, Dr. Nasseef was designated as a terror supporter or suspect, right? Nope, never.
Wasn't he a part of the Rabita Trust when it was designated as an al-Qaeda support group? Nope, but President Musharraf our main ally in Pakistan was.
ABDULLAH OMAR NASEEF (D97)
273. Rabita Trust, a subsidiary of the Muslim World League, is connected to the SAAR Network, through two officers, Dr. Abdullah Omar Naseef and Abdullah al-Obaid. The SAAR Network was the focus of March 2002 raids led by United States authorities for the network’s ties to al Qaeda.
274. On October 12, 2001, President George W. Bush’s Executive Order designated Defendant Rabita Trust as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Entity and the Treasury Department froze its assets. Defendant Abdullah Omar Naseef founded the Defendant Rabita Trust in July 1988 and is currently its chairman.
275. Abdullah Omar Naseef ( or “Naseef”) also served as Secretary-General of the Muslim World League during the time he created Defendant Rabita Trust and has attempted to spread Muslim World League offices around the world. Part of his global efforts are found in his involvement in a SAAR Network charity. Naseef is an officer of Makkah al-Mukarramah, Inc., registered in Virginia as a non-profit organization. A second shared executive is the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Rabita Trust, Abdullah al-Obaid, who is also an officer at two of the SAAR Network businesses that were raided, the Muslim World League and Sanabel al-Kheer. Defendant Abdullah Omar al-Obaid is unique in that, not only is he an officer at the Muslim World League and the SAAR Network, but he is also the Deputy General Manager at one of the al-Rajhi’s largest businesses, al-Watania Poultry in Saudi Arabia. Al-Watania Poultry has branches worldwide and in the United States.
exactly, everyone knows the only corruption and Scandals that are worth talking about are those against all of our political enemies the Republicans, white people, Christians or any of the other acceptable targets of our bigotry.

What about the Bush's Saudi connections?
We used to talk about that all the TIME...I guess it's not in style right now, as this is an anti-Clinton and anti-Obama hit piece...?
