According to Walid Shoebat, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton adviser and former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner wife, Huma Abedin, was an executive board member of the Muslim Students Association circa 1996-97.
In addition to Huma Abedin returning to the United States circa 1996 and landing a job with both Hillary Clinton and the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), she also joined the Muslim Students Association (MSA) Executive Board at George Washington University.

The Muslim Students Association is a bona fide Muslim Brotherhood front group. Patrick Poole wrote a report on the MSA here at the Tatler in February 2011, in which he detailed connections between the MSA, the Muslim Brotherhood, and international Islamist terrorism.
Abedin’s past membership in the MSA does not mean that she agrees with the group or its goals now. But that membership does indicate that Abedin agreed with the MSA at one time, and shows that Rep. Michele Bachmann et al’s questions about Muslim Brotherhood influence on the US State Department are based in facts about the past and present beliefs of figures like Abedin.
At a time when the Muslim Brotherhood is taking power across the Middle East, and when its offspring include Hizballah, Hamas and al Qaeda, it is reasonable to expect that such a group would seek to influence the US government and its foreign policy. It would be delusional and naive to assume that the group has no such interest.
