U.S. DOCUMENT REVEALS COOPERATION BETWEEN WASHINGTON AND MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD
Yes, gang, here’s yet another justification for impeaching one of the most, well, disloyal presidents in American history.
Take a look at this news story from the most recent “Gulf News Report” (GulfNews.com) on June 18, 2014:
STUDIES COMMISSIONED BY THE PRESIDENT CONCLUDED THAT THE U.S. SHOULD BACK ‘MODERATE ISLAMISTS (TERRORISTS)’ IN THE REGION
And here it is, for your perusal, in its entirety.
Read it and weep for America and the world:
“For the past decade, two successive US administrations have maintained close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Tunisia, Syria and Libya, to name just the most prominent cases.
“The Obama administration conducted an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 and 2011, beginning even before the events known as the “Arab Spring” erupted in Tunisia and in Egypt. The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.
“To this day, PSD-11 remains classified, in part because it reveals an embarrassingly naïve & uninformed view of trends in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.
“The revelations were made by Al Hewar centre in Washington, DC, which obtained the documents in question.
“Through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, thousands of pages of documentation of the US State Department’s dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood are in the process of being declassified and released to the public.
“US State Department documents, obtained under the FOIA, confirm that the Obama administration maintained frequent contact and ties with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood. At one point, in April 2012, US officials arranged for the public relations director of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Gaair, to come to Washington to speak at a conference on “Islamists in Power” hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace…
“Another State Department paper marked “Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU)” contained talking points for Deputy Secretary of State William Burns’ scheduled July 14, 2012 meeting with Mohammad Sawan, the Muslim Brotherhood leader who was also head of the Brotherhood’s Justice and Construction Party. The document is heavily redacted, but nevertheless provides clear indication of Washington’s sympathies for the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood as a major political force in the post-Gaddafi Libya…
“The Burns paper described the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood: ‘Prior to last year’s revolution, the Muslim Brotherhood was banned for over three decades and its members were fiercely pursued by the Gaddafi regime. The Libyan Muslim Brotherhood (LMB) returned to Libya last year after years in exile in Europe and the United States, selected new leadership and immediately began to plan for an active role in Libya’s political future’…
“The July 14 meeting was attended by both Secretary Burns and Ambassador Christopher Stevens. On September 11, 2012, Ambassador Stevens and three other American diplomats were killed in a premeditated terrorist attack on US mission and CIA facilities in Benghazi…
“An undated State Department cable revealed further courting of the LMB and its Justice and Construction Party … [The State Department cable reported]: ‘Mohammad Sawan, the Chairman of the Justice and Construction Party, received Ambassadors of US, UK, FR and IT at his office in Tripoli yesterday… The meeting, which took an hour and a half was attended by Mohammad Talb (one of the suspected architects of the Lockerbie bombing) and Hussam Naeli (acting liaison officer for the Lybian Muslim Brotherhood)…
SO WHAT CAN WE MAKE OF THIS DISTURBING REPORT?
And what do I think about this upsetting “collaboration” between the Obama administration and the Lybian Muslim Brotherhood?
In my opinion, the more we learn about the perfidy of the Obama White House — from the beginning of the Annointed One’s “reign”, to his recent dithering regarding Al-Qaeda’s invasion of Iraq – the more we realize what a tragedy, for America and the world, was the election of this unprepared and self-serving narcissistic Chicago politico as president of the United States!
