Thanks to Judicial Watch’s relentless judicial-watching, still more Hillary Clinton emails have come to light. And we learn that in the back-and-forth between Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin, some dismaying advice came to the then-Secretary of State from a seemingly unlikely corner: Huma Abedin’s mother.
Recall that Saleha Abedin was –- and still is, if my understanding is correct –- editor-in-chief of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, which has published material very much in conflict with our idea of women’s rights and even casting blame on America for 9/ll (Yes, it actually did; an excerpt from that essay was published by the New York Post).
So I suppose it’s not surprising that while preparing for her 2010 speech at a Saudi women’s college, Hillary was advised by Saleha Abedin not to use such words as “democracy/elections/freedom” (I am not kidding) or to say anything about women’s empowerment. “Don’t sound sympathetic to women’s plight,” as the students would be “extremely annoyed.” And whatever, you do, don’t mention the idea of women driving! They don’t want to hear about that.
Clinton did follow her suggestions for the speech; according to an analysis done by FOX News, even the word “freedom” does not appear at any point. It makes one wonder what she had left to talk about during her opportunity to speak with these young college women. The latest designs for headscarves?
