The Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi ties of Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide and confidante Huma Abedin and her influence on U.S. foreign policy are spotlighted in a newly released documentary called “The Enemies Within.”
In a six-minute trailer of the documentary made available to WND (see below), former intelligence officers express their concern about Abedin’s background, including her position in her family’s institute, which was established by the Saudi government and supported by a prominent financial contributor to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida.
Abedin has been in headlines since FBI Director James Comey announced Friday that the bureau reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information after discovering 650,000 of Abedin’s State Department emails on a computer owned by her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner, who is under investigation for allegedly sexting a minor.
WND reported in March 2015 Abedin used emails hosted on Hillary’s private server while she was secretary of state. WND also reported two months ago that Abedin forwarded classified national security information to one of two personal, unsecured emails she regularly used to transact State Department business.
“The Enemies Within” is produced and narrated by New Zealand blogger and author Trevor Loudon, who has been researching the radical left for more than 30 years.
Loudon interviews former CIA operations officer Clare Lopez, who recounts how the Saudi government established the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, the IMMA, and put Huma Abedin’s father, Syed Zainul Abedin, in charge.
Huma Abedin served for several years as an assistant editor for the institute’s journal, while her father was editor and her mother a co-editor.
Alongside Huma Abedin on the editorial board also was Abdullah Omar Naseef, the founder of the Rabita Trust, a financial institution founded prior to 9/11 for the explicit purpose of funding Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida.
Lopez, currently the vice president for research and analysis at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, noted that while Huma Abedin was working with Naseef, she was in the White House working as an intern.
Abedin then became an aide to Hillary Clinton, a senior adviser to Clinton’s senatorial campaigns and office, and eventually deputy chief of staff at the State Department.
“Now, this was a period of time when we might recall that U.S. foreign policy flipped on its head, from going after jihad and jihadist like al-Qaida to, in Libya, for example, aiding and abetting known al-Qaida jihadist militias to overthrow a sitting, sovereign government led by Moammar Gadhafi, no choir boy, to be sure, but our ally at the time,” says Lopez.
“All of this happened during the period of time when Clinton was secretary of state and Huma Abedin was at her side, whispering in her ear.”
The purpose of the Abedin-run institute, as WND has reported, is to instruct Muslims in foreign countries how to live according to the dictates of Islamic law, or Shariah, so they can fulfill the ultimate objective of making Shariah and the Quran the ultimate authority in the world, overturning “man-made” institutions such as the U.S. Constitution.
A Muslim Brotherhood document entered as evidence in the largest terrorism-financing trial in U.S. history shows the Brotherhood’s aim is to carry out “a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”

Mike Waller, a government security intelligence contractor, tells Loudon that no one with Abedin’s “ties with groups that seek to over throw the Constitution of the United States should ever have any government post in the United States.”
Philip Haney, a former DHS subject matter expert on Islam, says Hillary Clinton’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are “broader and deeper” than Abedin’s, citing, for example, Clinton’s leadership promoting a U.N. resolution favored by the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Conference, which is run by leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The resolution would effectively criminalize criticism of Islam.
In a Dec. 14, 2011, speech, Clinton said the resolution “marks a step forward in creating a safe, global environment for practicing and expressing one’s beliefs.”
“By endorsing U.N. Resolution 1618, by default Hillary Clinton is aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood, on a macro, global level,” Haney says in the documentary.
Noting Abedin’s close relationship, Waller warns that Clinton is “in a position where she can be blackmailed for her behavior, and then there’s nothing she won’t do to get what she wants.”
“So she would be a prime candidate for any foreign intelligence service to at least surround her with its own people, so they can influence her as a senator or as a secretary of state or even a president,” he says.
Haney concludes: “As a sworn law enforcement officer who took a vow to protect our country from threats both foreign and domestic, Hillary Clinton is a domestic threat.”
