Obama Inc Admits Brotherhood’s Egypt Not Democratic, Gives it $1.3 Bil Anyway

Accountability isn’t a word that Obama Inc. is too excessively familiar with. Not when it comes to domestic policies. Or international policies.

The Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt was only supposed to receive US aid if the Secretary of State certifies that “the Egyptian government “is supporting the transition to civilian government, including holding free and fair elections, implementing policies to protect freedom of expression, association and religion, and due process of law.”

The Egyptian government is doing the exact opposite of that under the Muslim Brotherhood and the original Tahrir Square protesters say that it’s even worse than Mubarak. Despite that, not only is Obama Inc. not calling on Morsi to step down, the way it called on Mubarak to step down, but it’s actually giving military aid to a violent totalitarian anti-American regime.

Kerry was forced to admit as much.

Despite stating in a May 9 memo that “we are not satisfied with the extent of Egypt’s progress and are pressing for a more inclusive democratic process and the strengthening of key democratic institutions,” Kerry said the aid should go forward.

So with that concession in mind, what justification is there for the giveaway?

“A strong U.S. security partnership with Egypt, underpinned by FMF (Foreign Military Financing), maintains a channel to Egyptian military leadership, who are key opinion makers in the country,” Kerry wrote in the memo.

“A decision to waive restrictions on FMF to Egypt is necessary to uphold these interests as we encourage Egypt to continue its transition to democracy,” he continued.

So we’re now providing military aid to Egypt to undermine the Muslim Brotherhood government by supporting the military in the name of democracy.

Several members of Congress said this week that Egypt’s sentencing of American NGO workers, who were there to help Egypt build up its civil society and to promote democracy, flew in the face of that very law, meaning that Egypt should not get the money.

O what a tangled web we weave.

 

  • Gee

    Ah yes – but the Muslim Brotherhood are the President’s type of fascists so we the American taxpayer must give them weapons that they do not need because they face no external enemies at all. And they will most likely use the fighters and tanks against their own civilians.

    Logic – what is the that?

    The administration reminds me so much of Alfred E. Newman and his “What me worry?” slogan

    I guess Obama forgot that he is a Christian. He must have because he certainly would know of the violent persecution of Christians by Morsi’s government, and Obama is known for his loyalty to what he believes. He wouldn’t give more money and weapons to a nation that uses crucifixion to kill Christians unless he couldn’t remember his deep faith and abiding faith in Christianity. He just forgot.

    This has nothing to do with just Obama.. Every U.S government has done this.. I dont see any republican or democrat stopping the billions of dollars being given to Saudi Arabia which is considered to be the worst Islamic state of all. America has backed the worst dictators for its own interests.. thats the reality. You write shocking ‘articles’. I feel sorry for the small-minded people who read them.

      “This has nothing to do with just Obama.. Every U.S government has done this.. ”

      “This” being what? Funding totalitarian Islamic regimes that destroy democracy?

      Generally our foreign aid is intended to influence regimes in the direction of our interests rather than to appease them. We (0′Bama) set supposed stipulations and then make a joke out of our stated requirements. What red line?

      Only Democrats can get away with this kind of lunacy and denial.

      “I dont see any republican or democrat stopping the billions of dollars being given to Saudi Arabia which is considered to be the worst Islamic state of all.”

      OMG. What billions in aid? They have (had) an agreement with us to host bases. We SELL them military hardware and we buy oil. We still have a defense treaty with them dating back to 1945 due to their oil reserves. We don’t actually need anything from Egypt. It’s a 1-way relationship. All we want from them is to perform according to the requirements set out, otherwise the aid is wasted. Worse, it tells others we don’t care about compliance. It becomes jizya.

      The Saudis pour their money IN to the USA because we buy so much of their oil when we don’t really need that kind of relationship these days. OTOH, Russia is on the rise again. Egypt doesn’t help us with Russia. The Saudis do, for a number of reasons.

      I don’t mind you being naive about foreign policy, but our POTUS and his minions ought to understand better than you do. Don’t you think?

    Muslim Brotherhood equals Nazism – remember, this ISLAMIC terrorist group was created in 1929 with assistance of the Nazi to fight English influence in Egypt.

    Their banner consists of two swords, for JIHAD (war), a verse from their Koran for preparation for war (gee, what a shock) and with a book between the two swords representing the hate filled KORAN.

    GOT ISLAM??
