On Wednesday, April 25, at 7:00 p.m. ET, GBTV will air a powerful documentary entitled “Rumors of War III,” which delves into the infiltration of America’s government by militant Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood. The special promises to provide “irrefutable evidence of the attack underway being perpetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah.”
Providing a preliminary look into the investigation, General William Boykin — who appears in the documentary — joined Glenn Beck on his Tuesday morning radio broadcast to discuss some little known facts about the role U.S. lawmakers have played in helping the Muslim Brotherhood gain entry into American politics and government institutions.
Gen. Boykin, a founding member of Delta Force, told Beck that Islamist groups have been gaining access to American lawmakers for years, starting under the Clinton administration. The problem, according to the general, has only been “enhanced” by the Obama administration.
