Still love the muslim brotherhood murderers?

Did you have to bribe your way out (with your life) by promising positive stories about islamic terrorists?

Obama threatened to cut off arms to the kidnappers.

Just when I think Jimmy Carter had the worst foreign policy ever, along comes Obama and doubles Carter's mistake with Iran by turning over Egypt & Libya to the muslim brotherhood terrorist group.

Now, he supports them in Syria and they kidnap our journalist.

No doubt Brian Williams is regaling the interns at NBC and anyone else who will listen, how his influence with Obama resulted in the release of his dear friend and colleague.....

remember - when NBC or anyone connected with them says anything - be suspicous - take it with a grain of salt, as the saying goes!! They do have an agenda which is not pro-American.

So...

Did he get the Lara Logan treatment?

Guess we’ll have to wait nine months to see if a little Mohammed pops out.
