Ah Liberals, always so trusting of dictators, Islamists, and, or course Communists. You might think they would learn after getting screwed over so often. But, the Left never seems to get it.
After angry Egyptians pelted her motorcade with shoes, chanting “Leave!,” Secretary of State Clinton insisted the U.S. wasn’t there to take sides. Too late.
‘I want to be clear that the United States is not in the business, in Egypt, of choosing winners and losers, even if we could, which of course we cannot,” Hillary Clinton intoned earlier this week.
Of course, the administration could, and it did, picking and even colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood. And one of its hard-liners, Mohammed Morsi, now sits in the presidential palace, where he refused to shake unveiled Clinton’s hand.
This administration favored Islamists over secularists and helped them overthrow Hosni Mubarak, the reliable U.S. ally who had outlawed the terrorist Brotherhood and honored the peace pact with Israel for three decades. The Brotherhood, in contrast, has backed Hamas and called for the destruction of Israel.
Now the administration is dealing with the consequences of its misguided king-making. Officials fear the new regime could invite al-Qaida, now run by an Egyptian exile, back into Egypt and open up a front with Israel along the Sinai. Result: more terrorists and higher gas prices.
In fact, it was Hillary’s own department that helped train Brotherhood leaders for the Egyptian elections. Behind the scenes, she and the White House made a calculated decision, and took step-by-step actions, to effectively sell out Israel and U.S. interests in the Mideast to the Islamists.
Or, maybe they DO get it? Maybe this was deliberate? I hate feeling like that is even a viable option here. But, given the radical things Team Obama has done, and done, and done that question must be asked. And make sure you read the timeline at the link, there really is little room to think anything but the worst here. This administration has been, and is way to cozy with the Muslim Brotherhood. That ought to scare all of us, and is yet another glaring reason to vote Romney in November. As bad as Obama has been on economic issues, his foreign policy is as bad, maybe even worse.
