If you're known by your friends and allies, the Muslim Brotherhood's intentions should be crystal-clear by the Taliban asserting yesterday that it's got its Egyptian bros' backs.

McCain and Lindesy Graham went to Egypt for Obama (as if there were no Dems that could go) and met with the military, interim leaders and the Muslim brotherhood.
I don’t remember them meeting with Coptic Christians or secularists there who have felt the tender mercies of Muslim Brotherhood’s brutal, medieval, and anti-Democratic rule.
Whom will the West fully side with now, now that the Talibam has sided with the Muslim Brotherhood?
I almost had a gag son.
Joke that is...
Obama’s team is getting support from the Taliban now?
0bama does too.
What did you think the direct negotiations were for?
There is one source claiming it was the Egyptian muslim brotherhood that attacked the Libyan consultant and CIA annex and stole the 200 rocket launchers.
"Egypt is in flames. What should I tell the American people, Susan?"
"After saying 'the Taliban is on the run and Osama Bin Laden
is dead'.... tell 'em Gen El-Sissi is a big sissy for not taking your call."
Egyptian Gen. El-Sissi did not accept Obamas phone call......shows that the military strongman is determined to keep the US admin from interfering in his plans to drive the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egyptian politics. After Wednesday's bloodbath, when Muslims gathered to mourn their dead at the mosque, Gen El-Sissi drove out the mourners, and confiscated the Muslim bodies.
I guess Susan Rice will have to go on Sunday TV talk and explain this foreign policy flopola...since she has been advising Obama on Egypt while he's relaxing in the Vineyard.
How clear does it have to be spelled out for people to get it!
Gen Al-Sissi would not take Obama's call---signaling the General's determination to drive the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egyptian politics. After Wed's bloodbath, he drove Muslims from the mosque where they had gathered to ID their dead---Al-Sissi then confiscated the bodies.
MILITARY.COM EXCERPT---US Pentagon officials declined to give specifics on conversations between DOD's Chuck Hagel and Egyptian Gen al-Sisi, but chief Pentagon spokesman George Little said that "US officials at all levels have made it clear that we support the democratic process in Egypt and that we hope that this period of tension can be resolved in a peaceful manner and that violence can be avoided." "We don't support any single party or group," Little said. "We believe that this needs to be resolved through political means."
Although the officials would not discuss the specifics of the military-to-military talks, the U.S. would need Gen al-Sisi's approval to move through Egyptian air space if Washington decided to send Marines to aid in the evacuation of U.S. personnel.
About 550 Marines and their tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey aircraft are at bases in Spain and Italy on standby if they are needed. A Navy Amphibious Ready Group with 4,000 Marines and sailors aboard, led by the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, was also in the region following completion of the Eager Lion training exercises in Jordan.
Gen Al-Sisi, 58, received a masters degree from the U.S. War College in Carlisle, Pa., in 2006.

Now they acknowledge that Kearsarge is in the area. Kearsarge was in the area when Benghazi happened but no one would admit it. Their Ospreys could have been there PDQ——just another piece of Obamuzzie’s halfassedness.
I want to send El-Sisi (two esses, notice the media shill meme-building) a basket of muffins for both of those things.
