Has everyone heard about Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine backing Hillary Clinton for a 2016 presidential bid? According to a CBS news article, Kaine, addressing a Democratic women’s breakfast on May 3, 2014, in South Carolina, said that former Secretary of State Clinton had shown grace in handling an array of problems and attacks in her 30 years of public life. The Democratic Senator from Virginia said it was never too early to start backing Hellary (yes, this spelling is intentional) and that she had “what it takes” to be president.
According to a statement by Kaine, “She’s got the accumulated backbone and scar tissue and wisdom and judgment – all of those things you need in a leader.”
While Hellary decides on a run for the White House again later this year, a document dump by the Clinton Presidential Library released a handwritten note by Bill Clinton in March 2000 to Bassam Erstwani, chairman of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. The tone of the note suggests that then President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton “enjoyed a friendly relationship with the chairman of a mosque that counted 9/11 hijackers as worshippers and invited controversial Muslim Brotherhood-linked television preacher Yusuf al-Qaradawi in for a meeting.” It appears that in the note signed “BC,” former president Bill Clinton indicated that having Muslim support would be good.
It seems Erstwani visited the White House multiple times during the Clinton presidency. Photographic documentation has Erstwani in the Oval Office shaking hands with President Clinton and, on another separate occasion, at a White House event smiling while next to Hillary. Erstwani has also been linked with Anwar Al-Awlaki – imam of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque from January 2001 to April 2002, a senior Al-Qaeda recruiter linked to several terrorists, preacher to three of the 9/11 hijackers, linked to the Fort Hood shooter by US officials and killed in a drone strike in September 2011 commanded by the CIA.
