Media Focus on Weiner's Wife Exposes Insider Game

Rep. Anthony Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, who was Hillary Clinton's traveling chief of staff during Hillary's presidential bid, and now works for Hillary at the State Department, is now part of some unwanted focus because of Weinergate.

NyPo disclosed details of a public event the State Department held, only because Abedin was there:
She's standing by her man -- but that act seems to be wearing thin.

Rep. Anthony Weiner's humiliated wife sheepishly showed her face at a Washington event yesterday, keeping a stiff upper lip amid the swirling scandal surrounding her husband's tawdry Twitter photo.

Huma Abedin, 34, briefly hesitated at the State Department ballroom door before working up the courage to go in -- but she left after just five minutes and steered clear of her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

While she put on a brave face inside the Beltway, her husband was busy weaseling out of a long-scheduled speaking engagement at last night's Wisconsin Democratic Convention...
It seems like a good call, as Abedin's wounds still looked fresh yesterday.
But what caught my eye was the nature of this event that would generally not be reported to the public:
...the secretary hosted a session of the Iraq Business Roundtable for companies including Caterpillar, FedEx, Microsoft, Citigroup and GE.
Got that? The empire briefing the corporate elitists on Iraq. Who knows the extent of the game? Thanks to Weinergate, a tiny part of the curtain has been raised for a moment.


  1. So you lot are surprised at THIS bit of news ???? I think some yanks need an extended lesson on the uncomfortable coziness between the Business Insiders and the Washington DC Insiders whO supposedly run your federal government. Your best primer (or as close to a visual Cole's Notes for the lazy) would be to watch the following movies: "Syriana" with George Clooney and "Wag The Dog" with Robert Deniro. It's no surprise that these so-called innocent "Business Roundtables" don't receive the proper attention by the news agencies in the US....

  2. Gosh, she is just a victim of her curcumstances.
