My reporting is very specific: You sit on the board of a front org that is fully controlled by the Qatari gov't and they continue to trot you out as a spokesperson for the group. That is something you cannot deny. I never said you work directly for Qatar.
Update: CNN has removed Kayyem's ICSS (the Qatar front group) board position from her bio. It was still there as of a couple of hours ago. I have reached out to CNN for comment.
In describing the claim as a false allegation, CNN confirmed to me that Kayyem was under contract with the Qatar-controlled institution, but says she is no longer there. I didn't know she was being paid... Kayyem's bio has for many years stated her affiliation with ICSS.
Update: Kayyem is in full damage control mode. Harvard just changed Kayyem's bio to say that she *was* affiliated w/ ICSS until 2015.

Also, if Kayyem was indeed under contract from 2012-2015, that means she was taking $$$ from Qatar *while* running for Mass. Governor.
According to Kayyem's Linkedin, she has been a CNN nat sec analyst since 2013. While she may not be presently affiliated with ICSS, CNN admitted that she was "under contract" with the Qatari front for at least three of the years she was working for CNN. Yikes.
Kayyem's *own website* still maintains that she is an active board member with ICSS. So as of this morning, Harvard, CNN, and juliettekayyem.com listed her as a current board member. Seems odd, no?
