Bachmann Claims Clinton Aide Connected to Muslim Brotherhood
Distraction from what is really going on or valid? You make the choice, but one thing the comment gallery seems to agree on is that this is a topic for discussion and opinion. We've got a couple of things going on here: race, religion, gender, party - all hot areas for today's sensitive times.

Arizona Sen. John McCain and Speaker John Boehner criticized Bachmann for “spacious” anti-Muslim attacks. Bachmann’s former presidential campaign manager, Ed Rollins, wrote in an op-ed article that charges mirrored McCarthyism. And the comment-sphere says?

Bachmann probably won't have any influence in Congress any more. Let's ignore her, let her think she is a martyr, and live out the rest of her irrelevant life in the solitude that she denied Abedin. … Does she really think the NSA, CIA, FBI, MI, State Department, etc are not watching potential risks? … Bachmann is a hate monger with a loose grip on her facts.
