It’s easy to get promoted by Obama. Just ask Susan Rice. Screwing up the country’s foreign policy is a stepladder to the top.

Hillary Clinton presided over a State Department that got nearly everything wrong about everything, culminating in a completely foreseeable and preventable attack in Benghazi,  and she’s the default Dem candidate for the White House in 2016.

If only she had somehow managed to get a dozen ambassadors killed, she would really be a shoo-in.

Susan Rice couldn’t get the Secretary of State job because of pesky Republicans complaining that she lied. So she’s Obama’s Nat Sec advisor instead and further up the ladder.

And now it’s time to promote Anne Patterson, the obsessively Muslim Brotherhood supporting US Ambassador to Egypt whose threats against the Copts and slavish Morsi worship alienated Egyptians.

And the Muslim Brotherhood’s biggest GOP fan in the Senate is suddenly fine with that.

When Egyptians took to the streets in huge numbers in an action that led to the army deposing the Morsi administration, they also protested the United States ambassador to Egypt. Anne Patterson was seen as a Muslim Brotherhood stooge who supported the Islamist group even as they were oppressing the population of Egypt. As we reported at the time, Patterson was called “the first enemy of the revelation” and was even more reviled in the protests than Mohammad Morsi.

Recently, Senator Lindsey Graham has taken the position of blocking any nominations to government positions until he receives answers from the State Department over Benghazi. This move has now been shown to be a political stunt with no true teeth as he has lifted the ban for Anne Patterson. If Patterson’s nomination passes the rest of the Senate, she will become the Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs.

Instead of being limited to supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Patterson will have the power to provide the support of the United States government for the Islamist organization across the Middle East.

When asked if the State Department gave Graham anything in return for the lifted holds, the spokesperson said “no.” A State Department official concurred: “I don’t think there was anything — just acknowledgment of them as imp[ortant] posts.”

I just bet.

    Isn’t she the one who issued this disgraceful message on 9/11/12 regarding the al-Qaeda engineered riots at the U.S. Cairo Embassy: “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing
    efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of
    Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.
    Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks
    on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who
    serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy.
    Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We
    firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of
    free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

    Obamao is connected to the brotherhood.
    How long have we been waiting for an up rise on these people?
    They finally do it and then domestic enemy in OUR house naturally ruins our relations with Egypt.
    It’s O.K. Mao. The Russians are more than happy to be their new friends.
    Obamao is not inly an national disaster to us but to the whole world.
    Not one ally trusts him. This Fundamental transformation is real good for the country and the world right?
    Where is OUR General Al-sisi?
    I bet he was one of the 200 military leaders he removed.
    D.H.S. is full of his Brotherhood buddies. That must be his Private Army he was talking about.
    How do you get Americans to shoot American citizens?
    Easy. Replace them with the Brotherhood and devout Communists. Done deal.

    And whoever said that incompetence could not be rewarded? Ugh!

    Worst ambassador since von Ribbentrop was in London.

    Be aware that Obama established a White House Muslim Brotherhood Advisory Council. Someone should look into the matter of White House staff and advisors registering as foreign agents.
