    Behind the rise of ISIS, the Libyan Civil War, the unrest in Egypt, Yemen and across the region may be a single classified document.That document is Presidential Study Directive 11.You can download Presidential Study Directive 10 on “Preventing Mass Atrocities” from the White House website, but as of yet no one has been able to properly pry number 11 out of Obama Inc.Presidential Study Directive 10, in which Obama asked for non-military options for stopping genocide, proved to be a miserable failure. The Atrocities Prevention Board’s only use was as a fig leaf for a policy that had caused the...

    ST. LOUIS Tom Schweich, Missouri's Republican state auditor and a leading contender for the governor's office in next year's election, has died, according to his office. Earlier in the day, a police source said Schweich had sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The police source said Schweich's wife was in another room of their house when she heard her husband making phone calls, followed by a single gunshot. He was 54. His death was confirmed by his office early Thursday afternoon, just hours after Schweich had requested an interview with reporters for the Post-Dispatch and the Associated Press at his...
  • Egyptians on US Policy: Obama, Clinton and Patterson supported terrorism in Egypt. Benghazi

    The second House Benghazi Select Committee hearing took place last month. In one notable exchange between Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security Gregory Starr, Gowdy asked for the name of the person the Committee needed to speak with to find out what the policy objectives were in Libya. How can we judge whether or not a policy has failed or succeeded if nobody tells us what the policy objectives were? Who should we bring in to explain why were we in Libya? Gowdy asked. As previously reported, documents confirm we were in Benghazi...

    John Kerry has assembled a three-person team to lead the State Departments efforts against ISIS. Two of the members Gen. John Allen and Brett McGurk seem unobjectionable. The third, Anne Patterson, is another matter. In announcing her central role, Kerry praised Patterson as one of our nations top diplomats deeply respected in the region. But Patterson is not respected in Egypt, where she served as ambassador during the period when the Muslim Brotherhood was in power. Bridget Johnson at PJ Media reminds us that Patterson stood firmly behind the Brotherhood as it persecuted opponents and attempted to consolidate...

    If you havent had enough evidence that Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham need to be removed from office, along with their dance partner Barack Obama, this should be enough to convince you. United States Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson is now being considered as Obamas pick for Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs.

  • Egyptian Pol: 'Very Strong Perception' Obama Backs Muslim Brotherhood

    TIME Magazine reports that Egyptians "remain convinced that President Obama is backing the Muslim Brotherhood and deposed President Mohamed Morsi." Speaking on August 22, the head of Egypt's Social Democratic Party Mohamed Abou El-Ghar said: "America is losing Egypt... There is a very strong perception that they are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and they are against other parties." El-Ghar said this perception began growing when Senator John McCain (R-AZ) met with representatives from the Muslim Brotherhood in February 2012 but would not meet with with representatives from other parties. He said the perception "was furthered" when U.S. Ambassador to Egypt...

    U.S. officials and experts do acknowledge [1] an Egyptian connection to the Benghazi attacks. Theyll point to what they call a ragtag group of jihadists, led by Muhammad Jamal Abdo Al-Kashif (aka Abu Ahmad), known as the Jamal network. However, the U.S. administration downplays this Egyptian connection, whereas several Arabic-language sources reveal a much larger connection. It is significant to point out that the first attack against the U.S. embassies on September 11, 2012, happened in Cairo. Egypt was the spark and Egyptians were the agents of both attacks. Al-Kashif had been locked up in one of Egypts most secure...

Moussa said, addressing U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson (in absentia) on his show: Ambassador Stevens was killed in Benghazi, and you know who killed him, the U.S. administration knows who killed him, and you know how he was killed and it was a major strike against the U.S. administration, and all of you.

    Egypt's interim leader swore in a Cabinet on Tuesday that included women and Christians but no Islamists as the military-backed administration moved swiftly to formalize the new political order and present a more liberal face that is markedly at odds with the deposed president and his supporters. The changes came at a time of deep polarization and violence in Egypt, including new clashes that killed seven people as part of the continuing bloodshed that has marked the days following the armed forces coup that swept President Mohammed Morsi from office and cracked down on the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt's military already...

    Mustafa Bakari, an Egyptian politician, issued a brutal assessment of U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson. Bakari stated, In my opinion, she [Patterson] is a member of the sleeper cells of the Brotherhood, likely recruited by Essam al-Erian or Muhammad al-Baltagi. In a June 18 speech, Patterson made the following statement in a speech about the turmoil in Egypt: Some say that street action will produce better results than elections, Patterson said. To be honest, my government and I are deeply skeptical. John Hudson at Foreign Policy wrote of her reluctance to criticize Morsi:

    This may have been filtered through the Egyptian media for that extra nationalistic flavor, but the demands are in line with those already made by Obama and State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. Yesterday El Fagr reported that, during their most recent phone conversation, U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson demanded that Egyptian General Sisi release all Muslim Brotherhood members currently being held for questioning: And when Sisi rejected this order, the American ambassador began threatening him that Egypt will turn into another Syria and live through a civil war, to which Sisi responded violently: Neither you nor your country can overcome Egypt...

    There are always two stories in America. There is the one that comes from Obamas mouth and then there is the truth. The truth of the matter is that this administration was all in on a Muslim Brotherhood controlled Egypt. You cant trust a word they say now that Morsi has been overthrown. Although I have little doubt that Obama would gladly throw Morsi, or anyone else, under the bus for his own benefit, we should not be so sure that this administration is done with The Muslim Brotherhood. There are reports coming from a very respected journalist in the...

She is too cozy with Egypts deposed president and the Muslim Brotherhood, the signs say, and should leave the country. Anne W. Patterson, a press-shy career diplomat who has been American ambassador to Cairo since 2011, suddenly finds herself a target in a dangerous political upheaval, a symbol for angry young Egyptians of Americas meddlesome role in their countrys affairs.

    As the violent standoff between the Egyptian military and President Mohamed Morsy continues, U.S. ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson has become a lightning rod for critics of U.S. policy in the country. The tip of the spear for U.S.-Egypt diplomacy, Patterson's June 18 speech discouraging street protests has come to symbolize the administration's inability to recognize the potency of Egypt's liberal opposition. "Some say that street action will produce better results than elections," Patterson said. "To be honest, my government and I are deeply skeptical." Now, with the Egyptian military's 48-hour deadline for Morsy to yield to protesters demands passed,...

    As tension mounted here in anticipation of Sunday protests against President Mohamed Morsy, another foe emerged for many Egyptians: the United States. SNIP For months, Egyptian liberals and moderates have grown angrier over what they say is inexplicable U.S. support for Islamists. In Tahrir Square, Cairo's epicenter of protest since 2011, graffiti near the Egyptian Museum declares: Down with the Brotherhood, Down with America! On a downtown building, a poster shows a distorted portrait of U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson over the words, Crone, Go Home. On a nearby corner, another poster says, Obama supports terrorism.

At least another 65 people were injured, most of them by birdshot in Alexandria, in turmoil that included crowds burning photographs of the U.S. ambassador and calling for the return of military rule. In perhaps the biggest irony of all, protesters brandished images of...

    As Orthodox Christians held Easter masses Saturday in the Middle East, North Africa and around the world, President Obama greeted the faithful saying Jesus' sacrifice "so that we might have eternal life" is an apt reminder this year with the region facing violent persecution. "For millions of Orthodox Christians, this is a joyful time," Obama said in a statement issued by the White House on Saturday. "But it's also a reminder of the sacrifice Christ made so that we might have eternal life. His decision to choose love in the face of hate; hope in the face of despair is...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is showing no signs of let-up in his drive to fix his broken state. His latest move: announcing last week that he wont reappoint Justice John Wallace to the states Supreme Court. Tapping former Deputy Attorney General Anne Patterson for the spot instead, Christie sent the states political class into a tailspin. Good for Christie: Clearly he means to shatter Trentons entrenched, destructive status quo, no matter how hard the fight; this is his chance to reel in Jerseys notoriously left-wing-activist court. Immediately, of course, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, a close ally of Wallace, vowed...
