Obama’s choice pick for the US envoy to the racist-Islamic supremacist Organization of the Islamic Conference, Rashad Hussain, lied about his being a supporter of Sami “the Terrorist Fund Raiser” al-Arian. He said that a-Arian: “was the victim of “politically motivated persecutions” who was being used “to squash dissent.”
The TT reported earlier that: “The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA) cited Hussain as making the remarks in connection with Sami al-Arian, a university professor and activist sentenced in 2006 to more than four years in prison (including time already spent in custody) after he had pleaded guilty to conspiring to aid the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).”
The WRMEA then scrubbed their website clean of an trace of the remark made by Rashad Hussain. This interview at Fox News reveals that the journalist who wrote that quote, still stands behind her story, that it was Rashad Hussain who made the remark.
Well then, in a briefing by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, he mentions that Hussain has stated that he has full faith in the outcome of the judicial process that convicted al-Arian, and sentenced him to jail. Well what else could he say now? The man is not to be trusted. KGS
