for
these
allegations,
you
reference
MuslimBrotherhoodinAmerica.com,
a
Web
sitecreated
by
Frank
Gaffney
of
the
Center
for
SecurityPolicy
(CSP).
Mr.
Gaffney
has
a
long
history
of
making
unsubstantiated
anti-Muslim
allegations,
including:
Accusing
then-ISAF
Commander
General
David
Petraeus
of
“submission”
to
Islamic
law
because
he
condemned
Florida
pastor
Terry
Jones’
burning
of
a
Quran;
Accusing
presidentialcandidateHermanCainaftermeeting
with
ISNAof
meeting
with“the
largest
Muslim
Brotherhood
front
inthe
United
States”(languagethat
appears
verbatim
in
your
letters);
Accusing
New
Jersey
Governor
Chris
Christie
of
“corruption”
and
“treason”
for
appointing
a
Muslim
lawyer
to
be
a
judge;
Accusing
anti-tax
advocate
Grover
Norquist
of
“enabling
and
empowering
Muslim
Brotherhoodinfluence
operationsagainst
ourmovement
and
our
country”;
Accusingformer
Bush
Administration
official
SuhailKhan
of
conducting
a
“Muslim
BrotherhoodInfluenceOperation”
against
the
AmericanConservativeUnion
(ACU),
the
host
of
the
Conservative
Political
Action
Conference
(CPAC),
and
Accusing
Republican
Virginia
House
of
Delegates
member
David
Ramadan
of
waging“stealth
jihad”
by
seekingelected
office.
Mr.
Gaffney’s
views
have
been
widely
discredited,
including
bythe
Federal
Bureau
of
Investigation
and
conservative
organizations.
The
FBI
saidhis
researchmade
“unsubstantiated
assertions”
and
relied
on
“outdated
information.”
After
the
ACU
board
conducted
a
full
investigation
of
Mr.Gaffney’s
accusationsagainst
Grover
Norquist
and
Suhail
Khan,
theboard
found
Mr.Gaffney’s
accusations
“reprehensible,”
“baseless”
and
“false
and
unfounded.”
The
ACU
even
baiTed
Mr.
Gaffney’s
participation
from
CPAC
in
2011.Despite
Mr.
Gaffney’s
record
of
unsubstantiated
allegations,
you
appeartohave
based
your
lettersto
the
Inspectors
General
on
his
views.
I
request
thatyou
provide
my
office
a
full
accounting
of
the
sources
you
used
tomake
the
serious
allegations
against
the
individuals
and
organizations
in
your
letters.
If
there
is
not
credible,
substantialevidence
for
yourallegations,
I
sincerely
hope
thatyou
will
publically
clear
their
names.
