Ben Affleck thanks Huma Abedin

If you watched as the credits rolled at the end of Argo, you may have seen a note of thanks to Huma Abedin.

I was curious about that, so googled and found this one

http://beforeitsnews.com/opinion-conservative/2012/10/the-hollywood-white-house-ben-affleck-huma-abedin-a-close-friend-who-was-instrumental-in-making-of-argo-2502290.html

A few years ago, Weiner advised Ben Affleck — the director and star of “Argo” – on his political role in “State of Play.” But it was actually Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who helped Affleck with this movie, the actor said.

“Huma is a really close friend of mine,” Affleck explained on the red carpet. “In fact, Huma — the reason why she’s here — is she was instrumental in helping us shoot the State Department.

As you know, we shot at the real State Department. We never would have had any of that stuff in our research . …Huma was enormously helpful, and obviously we invited her and she brought her husband. I look forward to seeing him.”

11. Michelle Bachmann and a few other cracked teapots railed against her

and claimed she was a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer a few months ago.

Oddly enough, John McCain did a nice job condemning the witch-hunt, before he went all Benghazi...

7. I've heard nothing but good things about her

she didn't deserve to have to live through that scandal, I hope she's happy and I'm glad to hear she helped them with the film. It was a great movie.

12. Same here. She really worked hard with Hillary

even before they both went to the State Department.

And she had to tolerate the embarrassment about her husband and the dirt thrown by Bachmann.

A classy lady who deserves now well earned time off.
