fox ^ | 8/6/13 | staff

Posted on 08/06/2013 11:01:50 AM PDT by Nachum

Two Republican senators said Tuesday that they´ve personally urged the Egyptian government to release Muslim Brotherhood prisoners, after hosting meetings with top officials in Cairo as part of an Obama administration-sanctioned visit. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is in Cairo along with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-.S.C., made clear that the two U.S. lawmakers are representing the views of Congress and "do not speak for the White House." Still, they are among the most prominent U.S. representatives in the country this week, as a wave of international mediators tries to nudge the country´s military-backed government to resolve the standoff

So multiple Senators are in a country where we closed our embassy due to terrorist threats... right.

This “terrorist threat” is phony - an attempt to divert attention from phony scandals. That “chatter” is Valerie Jarret and Obama scheming.

They are working for somebody else, like most of the Senate. But their behavior is becoming so egregious, even the sleepers are beginning to wake up - so they aren’t serving their masters’ interests very well.

Yes it does. I wonder if these two gems will just switch parties and make it official? They are rats at heart, just make it official.

And these guys are supposed to be on our side. Yeah right.

The other day someone said to me, “You seem to be angry most of the time ... “.
This is lefty DefCon 2, just after “Racist!” (`What’s wrong with *you*?’).
I had just disabused her of some Trayvon MSM falsehood, something to do with the left’s `The stalking of Martin by George’ article of faith.

All I could think to say was, `Any American who isn’t angry has to be either a Democrat or an idiot .. or simply hasn’t been paying attention.’

Urging the Egyptians to release MB rabble rousers is almost as bad as domestically urging the release of communists, leftists, anarchists, and progressives and other statist miscreants from American jails.

John McCain again with his fruticake understudy - two totally insane wackjobs. They make some Democrats look sane.

Are not Frick and Frack in Egypt at the President's express request?

And while this might be the view of the Senate, it is most assuredly not the view of the Republican caucus or the House.

Which is to say that the senile old fart is caught in yet another lie.

McCain was in Bengazi too. He has been compromised, and will work for the democrats until he retires.

Truthfully, the best bet for Egyptian stability is to round up every known MB member and quietly exterminate them. This means “disappear” them as well, so that no trace is left behind.

This is pretty much what Mexico did with radicals and communist agitators during the Olympics of ‘68. It finally came to light in 2001, 33 years later, by which time a few apologies and some changes to the law, basically to “don’t do that again”, was enough.

(slightly changed from The Mikado)

As some day may happen
That some victims must be found
I’ve got a little list
I’ve got a little list
Of societies’ offenders
Who might well be underground
And never would be missed
They never would be missed.

Any chance we can get the Egyptian government to keep these two aging assholes? It would sure make a lot of real Americans very happy.

Gosh, Israel is going to release terrorists, if they haven't already.  Graham and McStain are advocating Egypt do it.  All that remains is for us to do it.

We are that close to lasting peace folks.  Amazing..., we're almost there.  At long last...  /s
