Khizr Khan, the Muslim immigrant lawyer from Pakistan who arrived in America by way of Dubai and pulled at the heart strings of viewers of the Democratic National Convention by regaling the audience with the story of the loss of his son in Iraq, Army Captain Humayun Khan, told his son’s story but skipped over his own.
Khizr Khan entered the United States in 1980 from Dubai to attend Harvard Law School. That year saw the Central Intelligence Agency ramp up its operations in Pakistan in support of the Afghan mujaheddin against the Soviets.
The Pakistan operation was shepherded by national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, currently an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump and a bitter foe of Russia.
Khan received his bachelor of law degree from Punjab University Law College in Lahore, Pakistan in 1974. After entering the United States from Dubai in 1980, Khan received a masters of law degree from the University of Missouri in 1982.
Khan specializes in international trade law for Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. As anyone familiar with these countries knows, trade law for both countries involves the traditional Muslim bribe, the baksheesh, which, depending on the value of the deal, can involve millions of dollars. These deals are very familiar to Trump, who could have strengthened his argument against Khan by revealing the “Gold Star father’s” specialty in the “art of the bribe.”
Khan co-founded the Journal of Contemporary Issues in Muslim Law, an academic periodical that seeks to defend the arcane Sharia law to a legal system based on Western jurisprudence. Of course, Sharia law justifies the execution of gays, prostitutes, blasphemers, and Muslim “apostates” who convert to other religions.
ISIS, which practices Sharia Law, posted a video showing gay men being thrown to their deaths in ISIS-controlled territory in Syria:
Trying to advance Sharia law in legal systems based on Roman and English Common Law is like forcing a square peg into a round hole.
Khan is a firm believer that law is based on the Sunnah, the works of the prophet Mohammed. The Journal of Contemporary Issues in Muslim Law is linked to the Islamic Center of Geneva, Switzerland, an arm of the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood.
And here we run the circle back to Khan’s favorite candidate, Hillary Clinton. Clinton’s close aide and reported lesbian lover, Huma Abedin, has close links to radical Wahhabist Islam through her mother, the Pakistani-born Saleha Mahmood Abedin. Saleha Abedin resides in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and teaches sociology at Dar Al-Hekma College in Jeddah.
Although she was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Huma lived in Jeddah from infancy to her college years before returning to the United States. Dar Al-Hekma College is a women-only college in keeping with Sharia and Quranic principles of segregation of the sexes.
The college, which was endowed by the Al-Ilm Foundation, is part of a network of Wahhabist colleges and schools that extend from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan, Malaysia, and southern California.
Khizr Khan practices law in New York and is a member of the New York Bar. Khan’s Manhattan law office is next door to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, which also happens to house the residence of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power.
Power’s husband is Cass Sunstein, President Obama’s former information czar who excels in the art of disinformation, propaganda, and cognitive dissonance. But more interesting is the fact that Khan and his wife are residents of Charlottesville, Virginia, a home to a number of foreign Muslims, many of whom are students at the University of Virginia who wish to change their student visa status to permanent residency, or “green card” status.
Charlottesville is a so-called “sanctuary city” that welcomes those who either enter the United States illegally or overstay their limited residency visas.
Khan’s wife, Ghazala, is a pediatrician in Virginia Beach, which is a three-hour drive from Charlottesville. The Khans are not attracted to Charlottesville because of a convenient distance to their places of work.
So why do they reside in the university town? When their son died in Iraq in 2004, the Khans lived in Bristow, Virginia, a far suburb of Washington, DC in Prince William County. The Khans had also once lived in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The official notification of Khan’s death stated:
“Captain Humayun S. M. Khan, 27, of Bristow, Virginia, died June 8, 2004, in Baquabah, Iraq, after a vehicle packed with an improvised explosive device drove into the gate of his compound while he was inspecting soldiers on guard duty. Khan was assigned to Headquarters, Headquarters Company, 201st Forward Support Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, Vilseck, Germany.”
Khan was actually an Army intelligence officer, fluent in Arabic, who worked with Iraqi civilians in a program called the United States-Iraq Sponsorship Program, which was actually an operation designed to recruit Iraqis to work as police and in other “capacities” for the Coalition Provisional Authority, the U.S. occupation government of Iraq.
Khan’s home base of Vilseck is a center for U.S. intelligence operations involving units of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. When Khan was killed, oversight of Iraq “transition” programs, such as the U.S.-Iraq Sponsorship Program, had just come under the control of General David Petraeus, the first commander of the Multi-National Security Transition Command – Iraq.
Members of the Pakistani embassy, including deputy chief of mission (DCM) Mohammad Sadiq, attended Captain Khan’s burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The DCM of large embassies are almost always the embassy intelligence chief of station. In the case of Sadig, this would be the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
In 2008, Sadiq, who paid his respects to Captain Khan at Arlington, was defending ISI as the Pakistan Foreign Ministry’s chief spokesman. India accused the ISI of bombing its embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The bombing killed four people, including two Indian diplomats.
It was not only India that blamed the ISI for the bombing in Kabul. CIA officials said that intercepts of communications showed ISI involvement. Pakistan was so incensed by the statements from U.S. intelligence that it summoned CIA official Stephen Kappes to Islamabad for a chewing out session.
Virginia continues to provide driver’s licenses to terrorists. Mohammad Khweis, a member of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), was captured by Kurdish forces in northern Iraq. Like seven of the 9/11 hijackers, Khweis carried a Virginia license. Khizr Khan’s legal advice to followers of Sharia law has allowed them to game the U.S. immigration system and Virginia legal statutes. Khan has some explaining to do about his legal practice.
Pakistan was not a member of the U.S. coalition in Iraq, which begs the question of why the Pakistani embassy’s ISI chief attended Captain Humayun Khan’s funeral at Arlington? Was Khan working, through his Saudi- and Pakistani-connected father with the ISI?
If so, was the contact “sanctioned” by the CIA? If not, was Humayun Khan freelancing and feeding information from Iraq to the ISI, which then passed it to their close allies in the Saudi General Intelligence Department?
Khizr Khan claims he is a “legal consultant” in Charlottesville, although he is not a member of the Virginia Bar. Given the nature of Charlotteville’s status as a sanctuary city, Khan’s legal background and his work with the Muslim community in Virginia, it is likely that Khan offers help to Muslims who have overstayed their student visas in the university and sanctuary city to obtain permanent residence.
It should be recalled that seven of the 9/11 hijackers obtained Virginia driver’s licenses, three of which were used as official identification to check in for flights on September 11, 2001. Perhaps if Khizr Khan had not been so willing to help dodgy Muslim “students” overstay their visas and seek workarounds to the law, Virginia might have been able to prevent the hijackers fraudulently obtain driver’s licenses.
And had there been no 9/11, there certainly would have been no U.S. invasion of Iraq and Humayun Khan would have realized his dream of attending the University of Virginia law school and becoming a military lawyer. In making it easy for Saudis, Emiratis, and others to game the U.S. immigration system, Khizr Khan shares in some of the responsibility for his son’s death.
Because it is not advisable to attack any Gold Star family, Trump should have merely replied to Khizr Khan’s attack by saying, “I understand the family’s loss and although they attacked me, I will not respond to a grieving family.”
Trump could have added that Captain Khan would not have died had it not been for the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, a war for which Hillary Clinton voted as a senator. Through surrogates, Trump could have revealed the Khan’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, Sharia law advocates, the Saudis, and the ISI.
