Admin Official: Obama "not ruling out legitimacy" of Muslim Brotherhood for New Egypt Gov't
Monday, January 31, 2011 | Kristinn

An Obama administration official, speaking anonymously to the Washington Post, said the administration is open to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood being in the government of Egypt that will likely replace the rule of Hosni Mubarak:

The official said that while the administration was concerned about "some elements" of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood and other non-secular groups participating in the demonstrations, it was "not ruling out their legitimacy" and place in a future government.

Obama was aware that the Muslim Brotherhood and others were in the audience when he spoke of "a new beginning" in a 2009 speech in Cairo that was directed at the Islamic world, the official said. He cited a passage in the speech in which Obama said that "no system of government can or should be imposed by one nation on any other" and that "America respects the right of all peaceful and law-abiding voices to be heard around the world, even if we disagree with them."

The Post buried this unsettling revelation in an article about the administration charting a "delicate course to oust Mubarak."

Voice of America reported that at today's White House briefing, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the administration had no contact with the Muslim Brotherhood:

Gibbs was also asked about the U.S. position on potential participation of the Muslim Brotherhood in any new governing structure, saying that the United States has had no contact with the group.

"We have as we have throughout the world, standards for that contact - that is adherence to the law, adherence to non-violence and a willingness to be part of a democratic process, but not use that democratic process to simply instill yourself into power," he said.

While the group professes to be non-violent, the Muslim Brotherhood is widely considered to be the father of international Islamic terrorism and is thought to be working to create a global Islamic caliphate.

Wonder how the student trash will react when the girls show some hair and wind up with a face full of acid.

While 0bama would love to lose the Suez Canal ala Carter’s loss of the one in Panama, 0bama is essentially paralyzed while he waits to see who will win in Egypt.

0bama doesn’t want to back a loser in public.

That was merely a matter of time. Zippy is thrilled. Absolutely thrilled.

Another step closer to the caliphate.

Just "some elements"? What elements would they consider acceptable?

Of course they’re not ruling it out. It fits in with their agenda.

Actually, I think the dude is a Muslim sympathizer if not a Muslim outright, and I think the concept of more Islamic theocracies thrills him.

To call the marxist, tinhorn dictator in the WH Carter is to diminish the danger of that bastard. He is not Carter and he knows precisely what he’s doing.

Does anyone honestly believe that he is not involved in this? There has been collusion with the muslims and this is the goal.

And it is spreading like wildfire.
