I would have been far more impressed with Mr. Khan’s speech had he been correctly introduced as a Harvard trained attorney, who presumably holds membership in the American Bar Association, who worked for a lengthy period of time at Hogan Lovells, a large DC law firm which is reported as having as its clients the Saudi government as well as the Clintons and their foundation. While he is presented as the “average Muslim immigrant” on the street, he clearly has deep ties to the DC infrastructure. No doubt after several constitutional law courses he knows the constitution well.
I mourn the unnecessary death of his son, as I mourn the deaths of all our brave soldiers who have given and continue to give their lives for wars that have little if any positive outcome other than to serve as recruiting actions for wide spread foreign jihadi. I also mourn for the even greater number of civilian deaths, particularly women and children, from these wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and Yemen.
I would ask you Mr. Khan as well as your wife, how can you support a presidential candidate whose vote (among many) authorized the Iraq war? How can you support a presidential candidate who has been responsible for such devastation and death to both soldiers and innocents of all of the aforementioned countries? Has it reached your ears that Ms. Clinton was fully knowledgeable in the arms trade to these countries on behalf of these jihadis, that she is supported by many parties who benefit both directly and indirectly from the chaos ensuing from these perpetual wars?
I support neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton – I stand with a vast number of US citizens who are profoundly appalled by a presidential nomination process which has simply run off the rails offering no correctional process and only the logical truism that whomever of these two are elected, neither is a statesmen of sufficient acumen to guide this country in its hour of greatest need.
