Obama Proposes Arming Muslim Brotherhood in Somalia

Obama decided this week that the Muslim Brotherhood-linked regime ruling parts of Somalia out of the capital city Mogadishu is eligible to receive U.S. military aid and weapons, sending a memo to Secretary of State John Kerry announcing the new finding and laying the ground work for even more foreign entanglements in Africa.
The Obama administration formally recognized the Muslim Brotherhood-linked regime of Somali “President” Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in January — the first time a U.S. administration has officially recognized a Somali “government” since 1991.
Providing military assistance to the Somali government is in the interest of U.S. national security, President Barack Obama said in a memorandum.
Obama issued a notice to Secretary of State John Kerry noting his position on arms exports to Somalia.
“I hereby find that the furnishing of defense articles and defense services to the Federal Republic of Somalia will strengthen the security of the United States and promote world peace,” Obama’s memo stated.
Giving weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood is bound to promote world peace. How could it not?
