Spencer Abraham, former Bush Energy Secretary, has made it official. He’s for sale to the Mid-East’s highest Islamist bidder.
John Harwood reported in his “Washington Wire” column in Friday’s Wall Street Journal that Abraham, who was Michigan’s U.S. Senator and is of Lebanese descent, just opened a “strategic consulting firm serving clients in Mideast and other markets.”
As we’ve written (and that column was quoted in The Washington Post), Abraham favored pan-Islamists from HAMAS front group CAIR and others from Islamic charities raided by Customs Agents for laundering money to Al-Qaeda. He invited a man tied to one of the Al-Qaeda-related charities to the Bush White House to give out post-9/11 “awards.” Abraham also took campaign contributions from Nijad Fares, the son of then-Hezbollah installed Deputy Prime Minister of Lebanon.
We’re glad that Abraham has now come out in the open and made it official that–as we’ve previously lamented–he can be bought by the highest Pan-Islamist Mid-East bidder. We only hope he does not share vital energy secrets with them.
Don’t count on it.
Full Disclosure: Spence Abraham, when he was Vice President Dan Quayle’s Deputy Chief of Staff, wrote a recommendation for me when I was applying to law schools. But that was the Spence Abraham I knew who was good and decent–before he became a whore to radical Islamic causes once he reached the U.S. Senate and to date.
