Letters of Support for the "National Security Five"

Reps. Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Trent Franks (AZ-02), Michele Bachmann (MN-06), Tom Rooney (FL-16) and Lynn Westmoreland (GA-03) sent letters a few weeks ago to the Inspectors General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the Department of State. These letters seek answers about the U.S. government’s involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group that calls for “civilization jihad” against America.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, in his editorial supporting the Congressional group, dubbed them the “National Security Five.”
