On September 19, 2012, David Horowitz appeared on Fox News with Megyn Kelly to discuss the arrest of Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, the producer of "Innocence of Muslims," and, according to the leading members of the Obama administration, chief villain in the attack on the US compound in Benghazi on 9/11/12. Horowitz was in fine form, waxing outraged as the administration seemed to turn the screws on Nakoula and free speech itself -- a play, I would add, right out of the Muslim Brotherhood, OIC, Al Qaeda, CAIR, Muslim-"moderate" playbook to make the West conform to Islamic prohibitions against criticizing Islam.

Making the point that our ambassador had just been "murdered," Horowitz points out at around 2:30 of the video here (hat tip Andrew Bostom) that the Justice Department was nonetheless focusing on the filmmaker.

He continued:

David Horowitz: And you have to ask yourself: Isn’t not the fact that the chief advisor on Muslim affairs for Hillary Clinton, for our Secretary of  State, is a Muslim Brotherhood operative? And the Obama administration has turned over Egypt to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a Nazi --

Megyn Kelly: Well --

DH:  -- organization.  

MK: They, well, just a couple – I mean there are, there are questions about whether that’s true or not, with respect to Hillary Clinton‘s, uh, assistant.

DH: Well, It is true.

MK: Well okay, that‘s fine, that’s your position --

DH: She’s worked for 12 years – She's a Muslim Brotherhood operative.

MK: I know, I understand, and, uh, that’s your, I believe [referring to] Anthony Weiner’s wife.

DH: Huma Abedin.

MK: Right, OK. So there’s some real question about that --

DH: But look --

MK: They, They’ve taken real issue with that --

DH: You have to look at what’s happening --

MK: But I don’t want to get sidetracked. I don’t want to get sidetracked. Because I do –

DH: Israel --

MK: But lissen, let’s, I apologize for interupting you but we have a short time, short time, and I  want to stay on topic …


Granted, Kelly was discussing the arrest of Nakuola. But given the arrest's tie-in to the general war on free speech by the Islamic world, waged by terror groups, MB groups, and Islamic UN diplomats alike -- and assisted by Hillary Clinton through her work with the OIC on behalf of UN Resolution 16/18 -- the placement of a "Muslim Brotherhood operative" in the SecState's office is quite relevant.

Then again, such an allegation -- that a representative of an enemy/foreign entity has penetrated the SecState's inner circle -- made by a respected author and Fox contibutor is always news. Isn't it the natural journalistic reflex to respond to the allegation with a question like this: That's a very serious charge, David. Do you have any evidence to back that up?

Instead, Kelly sides with whoever "they" are who have "taken real issue with that" to shut the issue down.

Why? I don't know the answer to that. I don't even know what we're looking at here except a very experienced interviewer who clearly doesn't want her interviewee to talk about a major national security scoop, regardless of what evidence he have to bring to light. This is, in itself, odd and also not a little troubling.
