Morsi needed a high-profile American hostage that he knew 0bama would trade the Blind Sheik for because 0bama would NEVER allow an Ambassador being held hostage looming over his head right before the election.. No way, no how. Hillary might have opened the door for Morsi by reducing/refusing security for Stevens.. Perhaps she didn’t want 0bama to get re-elected, either. She’s running in 2016 and he’d be a hard act for the Democrats to want to follow (if there’s a country left by then).
I just can't buy into that. Yes Morsi is crazy enough to do it but this couldn't have been a planned deal with Obama. No chance.
The odd thing in all of this is that it seems clear that Obama just washed his hands of it so quickly. He was AWOL that night. Yes he was off to service his highest priority the following day (fundraising, of course) but I'm still waiting for an explanation of what he was doing on the night of the Benghazi strike.
