As John Kerry heads to Egypt on Saturday for his first visit as secretary of state, he faces a barrage of accusations from liberal and secular Egyptians who say Washington is siding with the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in the countrys sharp political divisions.
Washington, Egypts longtime economic and military benefactor, has kept relatively warm ties with Morsi. The Obama administration has praised him for helping resolve last years battles between Israel and Hamas, the Islamic militant rulers of the Gaza Strip, and for maintaining Egypts peace treaty with Israel.
The U.S. has said it wants to encourage the building of democracy in Egypt and, amid the political turmoil, has urged all sides to work out their differences. But the opposition says U.S. officials have voiced little criticism of what it calls the Brotherhoods undemocratic ways of imposing power, including pushing through an Islamist-backed constitution despite an opposition boycott at the end of its drafting.

Heck they are right, Obama IS in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood. I hope they give Kerry a real hard time there.
“...Washington is siding with the ruling Muslim Brotherhood...”
The Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, the Palestinian Authority and just about every other radical Moslem group.
And, by the way, sane people here in the US aren’t too happy about Obama’s fondness for terrorist thugs, either.
Egypt’s liberal’s are nothing like U.S. liberals. U.S. liberals complain about imaginary civil liberties that never existed and undermine the Western traditional values that made this country great; while, Egyptian liberals yearn for real civil liberties and embrace those same Western values that our liberals have rejected.
I would trade our liberals for their liberals any day of the week.
Who would know better than the secular groups just where US support lies.
Imposing John Kerry on someone is an act of war.
