Obama, Hillary Secretly Helped Bring Islamofascists to Power in Egypt
The Obama Record: 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.
The untold story of the “Arab Spring” is that the Obama administration secretly helped bring Islamofascists to power…
…The Muslim Brotherhood’s sudden ascendancy in the Mideast didn’t happen organically. It was helped along by a U.S. president sympathetic to its interests over those of Israel and his own country.

…Obama’s aides used the July 23 press event to slam Romney for politicizing foreign-policy issues.
“This isn’t the time for anyone to be playing politics with our policy in the region,” said Colin Kahl, who formerly served as Obama’s deputy assistant secretary of defense for the Middle East.
Egyptians are “navigating their transitions to democracy,” he said in reference to the recent electoral victory of the islamist Muslim Brotherhood, which has prompted increased threats against Israel…
…According to Gibbs, Romney’s trip includes too many fundraisers, and appears to be “almost entirely built around fundraising.” Gibbs then said he would prefer not to comment about the subject, and instead would let Obama’s “surrogates get into that.”
“We did not do fund-raisers on our [European] trip,” he said.
Obama’s 2012 campaign, however, has scheduled several fundraisers in China and Europe, and the president has attended a record number of domestic fund-raisers for the 2012 election…
