EXCLUSIVE: How Hillary Clinton Mainstreamed Al-Qaeda Fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi
After news of Alamoudi's statement in support of Hamas and Hezbollah reached the media, Hillary Clinton promptly returned Alamoudi's political contribution to her U.S. Senate campaign.
Alamoudi's undoing came when he was stopped in September 2003 at London's Heathrow Airport with $340,000 of sequential $100 bills on his way to Syria. Prosecutors said they believed he was headed to deliver the money to Hamas and possibly other terror groups.
The money he was carrying was believed to have been provided by Libyan intelligence to Alamoudi as part of a plot involving al-Qaeda operatives in London to assassinate the Saudi crown prince. Alamoudi was sentenced to 23 years in prison after pleading guilty to his role in the assassination plot. His sentence was reduced in 2011 to 17 years under an agreement with the Obama Justice Department testimony in a terror-related trial.
As Alamoudi sits in his cell at the federal prison in Kentucky tomorrow night, will he be watching his old friend Hillary Clinton making her keynote speech to the Democratic Party National Convention?
Between now and Election Day in November, will anyone in the media ask presidential candidate Hillary Clinton about her role in mainstreaming her al-Qaeda fundraising friend?
