The U.S. State Department is refusing to comment days after it emerged that they ordered the Department of Homeland Security to give members of a Muslim Brotherhood delegation traveling to the United States VIP treatment so they could bypass airport security.
The story first emerged first appeared on Friday last week after the Investigative Project on Terrorism obtained a document (PDF) as a result of a FOIA request proving that Muslim Brotherhood members traveling through Minneapolis Airport, New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and Dulles Airport were handed “port courtesies,” with the State Department telling the DHS to ensure the men “not be pulled into secondary upon arrival at a point of entry.”
After the influential Drudge Report picked up an Infowars article, the story went viral, but no explanation has been offered by the State Department as to why it afforded members of a group with links to terrorism special treatment allowing them to bypass airport security.
