Skip to comments.GOP Members Of Congress Hold Surreal Press Conference In Egypt Thanking Military For Overthrowing...
Posted on 09/09/2013 4:22:49 PM PDT by sopwith
Republican representatives Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), and Steve King (R-Iowa) held a press conference last week in Egypt, praising and thanking the Egyptian military for a July 3 ouster of what Bachmann called the "common enemy" Muslim Brotherhood.
Via the Washington Post's Max Fisher comes video of the press conference, which is bizarre, to say the least.
Bachmann thanked the Egyptian military for the coup and the military-led government's crackdowns on protests, implying that the Muslim Brotherhood of which former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was a member was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
"We were cheering in front of our televisions back home in the United States, Bachmann said, referring to when the Egyptian military overthrew Morsi. "We were cheering for you."

For those who don’t know, the Egyptian military has been keeping the peace for decades.
Only someone with a political agenda would say otherwise.
It's disgraceful that numbskulls like this reporter have any megaphone at all.
Al-Qaeda is a wholly owned franchise of the Muslim Brotherhood. They are the “shock troops”, much like the Waffen-SS was the direct supporting army of the National-Socialist German Workingmen’s Party (commonly abbreviated as “Nazi”).
The parallels are striking.
Bachmann will be missed.
Bachmann voted to keep Bonehead as Speaker, she lost a lot of credibility there too
Business Insider isn’t worth a pitcher of warm spit on business news either
Yep, it’s peopled with Left-wing blog pimps who specialize in numbered lists: 40 reasons not to post BI to FR
Although, that’s one I haven’t seen yet. I hate going there or seeing their stories.
The Muslim Brotherhood wanted one vote in Egypt, all the time claiming that they would not field a presidential candidate (please correct me if I'm wrong on that point).During the process of that election,they intimidated and threatened many to not vote.
They then gained power, suspended the constitution, voted in a Sharia Law instrument, and started the process of establishing a radical Muslim state (including the killing of Coptic Christians), and ending the hope for a democratic process in the future.
This author's bias is really showing in this article. I find it really revealing that President Obama had us involved in promoting a false Arab spring across north Africa (really an effort to bring radical Muslims into power), and now wants the US to be Al Quaida’s air force in Syria. Isn't that what we were in Libya for the radical Muslims?
Assad has killed those who oppose him(fellow Muslims). A branch of the Muslim Brotherhood (Al Quaida) killed thousands of Americans on 9-11. Now Obama is pushing us to side with Al Quaida against Assad?
This action by our President is what's crazy, not our representatives thanking the Egyptian military for responding to the 23 million Egyptians who demonstrated against Morsi, and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Gee, uh, she’s dead on right.
The entire Free World (minus it’s putative leader, of course) were cheering when the Egyptian military dumped the 7th century troglodytes turning Egypt into an Islamist dictatorship.
If this is the kind of inside information BI puts out, read everything they say and do the exact opposite!
Moderate Muslims rise up and overthrow radical Islamists in Egypt...Business Insider fails to notice.
Business Insider writers know less about geopolitics than most liberals, and that’s saying something.
BI is owned by a left wing loon and nothing more than a Dem party website.
‘Business Insider’ is a Democrat propaganda organ designed to pretend it is competing with genuine business publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Investors Business Daily, etc.
Don’t take silly crap like Brett LoGiurato seriously. I never heard of him but I would bet he’s fresh off some Daily Collegian somewhere and aiming to someday write silly screed for Rolling Stone or The Nation or some other lefty laughingstock.
It is all Sunni vs Shiites. Until we get that we are painfully ignorant as Christians.
Why was this ‘surreal’. These three patriots did the right thing.
Kudos to Bachmann, Gohmert, and King for sticking their fingers in the eyes of our Whiner in Chief, Susan Rice, Hitlery, and the other anti-American crowd in D.C.
