Lt. Kaminsky: You wanted confirmation, Captain? Take a look! There’s your confirmation!
Tora Tora Tora 1970
Egypt has had a rough time since the initial coups that brought Nasser to the throne.
They’ve lost multiple wars, they’ve had authoritarian leaders, the people have been oppressed and the dictators and powerful and mainly filtered the aid wealth to themselves instead of improving the lot of the avg Egyptian.
So you can imagine with his first speech the first democratically elected president of Egypt, newly congratulated by Obama on his win would be focusing on solving these problems with his first speech wouldn’t you?
In his first public speech addressing tens of thousands of mostly Islamist supporters, Egypt’s president-elect Mohammed Morsi has vowed to free the blind sheik jailed in the U.S. for a plot to blow up New York City landmarks.
Morsi, Egypt’s first Islamist and civilian president-elect, promised Friday to work to free Omar Abdel-Rahman, the spiritual leader of men convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
Well if you are a person who gets his news from the MSM you are likely shocked and surprised. After all those warning about the Muslim Brotherhood came from people like Pam Geller and Robert Spencer and Front Page Magazine and blogs on the right.
How can this be? You KNOW the Muslim brotherhood is not radical, Barack Obama’s administration told you so, why one of Mrs. Clinton’s closest aides mother is in the women’s version of the organization.
Now I don’t blame the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt for doing this, like the tale of the Scorpion and the Frog he is acting according to his nature (no doubt learned in his years at USC) nor do I blame the Egyptian people who have the right to elect the president of their choice…but NOW that the choice is made it is up to the US to make them aware that such a choice has consequences.
And before you make the “oh it’s a different culture” argument consider this from Allahpundit:
Bear in mind, this guy has a Ph.D from USC, taught at Cal State-Northridge for three years in the early 80s, and has two children who are American by birth. This isn’t a case of a random Arab politician demagoging America by praising some jihadist degenerate who plotted against the U.S. This is a guy who lived here, studied here, worked here, and had kids here. And now he’s looking to spring someone who was even further ahead of the terrorist curve than Bin Laden. Go figure that a Truther would make freeing characters like Rahman a priority.
So now the mask is off and our friends on the left have to decide: Confronted with this new reality are they going to deal with it directly acknowledging what is going on and acting accordingly or is their hatred of Pam Geller, Robert Spencer,Kathy Shaidle and all of us who have sounded the warning for years just too comfortable for them to abandon it over a little thing like freeing the first person who tried to take down the World Trade center?
Your call people.
