Via The Australian:
SOMEWHERE between Abu Dhabi and Lusaka, the US's most powerful diplomat sat down with her closest aide last week and talked of straying husbands, predatory women and internet sex.In another trip early last year, Huma accompanied Hillary to a school in Saudi Arabia that her mother co-founded. Another co-founder was none other than Yaseen Abdullah Kadi, who was once on the designated terrorist list.
It was not quite what Hillary Clinton had intended when she set off on her latest tour as US Secretary of State; yet it is hard to think of anyone in Washington better equipped to offer advice on the painful fallout from a sexual scandal.
For once, the shenanigans had not involved Clinton's husband, Bill. Yet the saga of congressman Anthony Weiner's penis and how its picture turned up in cyberspace has crushed one of the Clintons' most cherished acolytes and added a poignant human twist to an otherwise farcical tabloid tale.
She is officially Hillary's deputy chief of staff but Huma Abedin, Weiner's clever and glamorous 35-year-old wife, means far more to the Clintons than her title suggests. Hillary once described her as "a second daughter" and when Abedin married Weiner last year, Bill presided over their vows in his capacity as former president.
It would seem that before we allow Huma to be portrayed as the completely innocent, unsuspecting victim, some research should be done into her background.
