Ive asked the question before and continue to ask, whose side is the Obama administration if not all Democrats on? According to Foxnews.com, In a hastily-organized trip marked by extraordinarily tight security, Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Egypt on Sunday, embarking on a weeklong tour of Middle Eastern and European capitals where he will try to rally support for the embattled central government in Iraq.
Wait a minute I thought it was up to the Iraqi government to figure this little situation out for themselves? ISIS marches on and Shiite clerics are threatening the United States of America, all the while Iran is poised to become a regional hegemony. And the Obama administration hints that its willing to work with Iran to resolve the crisis in Iraq. Confused yet? So far lots of talk and declarations, but nothing to halt the advance of a radical Islamist army.
But what really alarmed me were these words from a Kerry aide:
We do not share the view of the Egyptian government about links between the Muslim Brothers and terrorist groups like ISIS [the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq]. [Egyptian leaders] need to include, and find ways to reach out to, the Muslim Brothers. With regard to the challenge that the Muslim Brothers pose, I would characterize it more as a political challenge than a security challenge.
Lunacy, pure unadulterated lunacy and this is what were sending to represent the United States? This is naiveté and incompetence but the more frightening prospect is collusion and complicity.
Perhaps Kerry and his aides should read Erick Stakelbecks book on the Muslim Brotherhood, their history and their objectives. This is why the Obama administration is incapable of contending with the issue of Islamic totalitarianism.
We recently wrote a piece here on Senator Patrick Leahys assertions against supporting the current Egyptian government apparently Kerry staffers echo the same sentiments, Aides traveling with Kerry, who has met el-Sisi before, said he will seek to impress upon the new president that the key to luring foreign investment and tourism back to the land of the pyramids is for el-Sisi to take steps to make his countrys political and legal systems more inclusive and fair.
I suppose the Kerry State Department and the Obama administration felt the Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohammed Morsi was inclusive and fair in its drive towards a sharia state?
State Department officials cited those concerns from Egypts recent staging of mass trials, with hundreds of defendants and across-the-board death penalties imposed, to the jailing of journalists and a near-epidemic of unpunished sexual violence as reasons why the Obama administration and Congress have not restored all of the U.S. foreign aid and military assistance suspended last year in the wake of the coup against Morsi.
Perhaps the State Department has forgotten that 36 million Egyptians took to the streets to rid themselves of the cancer known as the Muslim Brotherhood. They dont seem to understand that the only way to end the scourge is to eradicate the Brotherhood after all, it was the Brotherhood who assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Sadat because he sought peace with Israel.
The Islamists along with Putin, Rouhani, and China know that this is their time, their moment is at hand. The modern day embodiment of Sir Neville Chamberlain occupies the White House and his emissary John Kerry is his disciple of defeat and subjugation. America has gone from championship-level exceptionalism to being the Bad News Bears. Time for a Churchill.
Is this a trick question?
“Whose side is he on?”
The same side as Hillary/Huma?
His loyalties are to any group that is harmful to the USA.
Citizen of the world type of thing.
Guaranteed that when (if?) Obama leaves office he will suddenly have a calendar full of Middle East speaking gigs at $500 grand a pop. That’s how they bribe our leaders now.
the MB is in the highest level of national security organizations of the US
MB staffers, faceless staffers and policy drafters, hidden under the radar, write, correct, embellish and coordinate the policy documents, studies, assessment or recomendations that make it to Kerry and other decisionmakers
couple this with the fact that our top leaders and their top advisors, like kerry rice jarrett obama even brennan are incredibly arrogant, breathtakingly naive or downright stupid - or dangerously something else
Thankfully the Egyptians steeped up to the abyss, looked into it, and backed away and we should hope with the backing of Russia they can hold the line
John F Kerry seems to have a habit of being on the other side.
I believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is Sunni. Why wouldn’t our Sunni President support them? Of course he will. Terrorist or not. Rational or not. In the best interests of the United States or not. It doesn’t matter. They are Sunnis. They are brothers.
Kerry you are folking traitor
the mooselimb bro’hood is filled with terrorist murderers
“State Department officials cited those concerns from Egypts recent staging of mass trials, with hundreds of defendants and across-the-board death penalties imposed, to the jailing of journalists and a near-epidemic of unpunished sexual violence”
wait, isn’t this a description of the Morsi regime?
In reality, this was a campaign contribution since the book won't come close to clearing anything...
John Kerry’s up-stairs maids were telling Michal Moore’s butler that the Clinton’s personal chef had said that Kerry doesn’t like Israel...
I refer you to his OWN WORDS in his own auto bio.
I'll bet most of the books Hillary 'sold' that first week were bought in large quantities by fellow liberal elites who were really making campaign contributions.
I'll also bet those books were dumped on the secondary book market... without ever having touched human hands.
