It is becoming quite apparent that the military in Egypt is intent on doing what this Administration is not capable of -- Destroying the Muslim Brotherhood. As you may recall the Obama Administration was politically aligned, or hitched their wagon to, the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Egypt. This cozy and warm relationship Obama was fostering with the tentacles of terror has disturbed many in this country, not to mention a lot of rank and file citizens across Egypt. We are leaning now, for example, that the terror attack that killed 4 of our diplomats in Bengazi have a link directly to the ousted former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. A few days ago I posted a video of a 12 year old boy who was stopped on the street by a Western Journalist and interviewed about the current situation on the ground in Egypt and was awe struck by the articulate and heady answers he gave that give us here in the US a moment of clarity and pause that the rank and file protesters, including a 12 year old boy, want freedom for their country. They view Islam, or more aptly, radical Islam the like that the Muslim Brotherhood were busy instilling upon their countrymen are treated with contempt that do not coincide with what the average citizens were trying to bring about. The Egyptian military apparently is sided with those wanting change and are engaging radical Islam aggressively with all the might they possess militarily much to the chagrin of Western media outlets who are backing the wrong horse, so to speak, much akin to this Administration. The link above is one example of the kind of "reporting" that we hear in the liberal echo chambers. For instance we learned early from our own liberal President that the war on "terror" is over. The reluctance to even use anything that hints to that word "terror" is forever banned nomenclature. It is now an "overseas contingency operation". This line of thinking is clear by the reporters disgust with the word when he writes:
"Tens of thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters remain camped across Cairo and other Egyptian cities – “terrorists” is the tired but dangerous code word that General Abdul-Fattah el-Sisi used about them yesterday."
"El-Sisi’s talk of “terrorism” was principally referring to the daily attacks on Egyptian soldiers in the Sinai peninsula, which appear to be more the work of al-Qa’ida affiliates, smugglers and tribal leaders than any involvement by the Brotherhood."
Here the pseudo-journalist blurs the lines giving the reader the impression that the Brotherhood is not involved what-so-ever in terror. We see the same claptrap crap about Israel being the terrorists and the Palestinians as the victims. As stated above, the involvement of the Brotherhood in the Benghazi terror attack is indicative of this involvement. The premise about the intelligence community is that the Muslim Brotherhood seeks the release of the "Blind Sheik" from US custody where he is currently serving a life term for his terror involvement in the first twin tower attacks in Manhattan. The premise is this, the Muslim Brotherhood wanted to kidnap Ambassador Stevens in order to trade him for the Blind Sheik. But, given the propensity of terrorists to kill people, they ended up killing him when they had him in their grasp. The time period before the Benghazi attack and directly after had the Obama Administration (The State Department headed by Hillary Clinton) was in negotiations for his release.
It was similar to the release of the Lockerbie bomber on "humanitarian reasons" to Egypt. To say that the terror attacks occurring across Egypt were loose affiliates to al-Qaeda and not the Brotherhood is patently absurd. Do I really need to remind everyone that the Blind Sheik is the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and that the number two al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. In a similar move, the American (I use that term loosely) attorney that represented the Blind Sheik herself was indicted, prosecuted and convicted of aiding a terrorist organization when she was found to be passing information from the Sheik to his followers overseas to continue the violence against the Egyptian Government. Lynn Steward is described as such:
"Stewart was admitted to the NY State Bar on January 31, 1977 and for much of her career as a lawyer, Stewart represented a number of economically disadvantaged clients as well as more high profile cases. Stewart is a self-described "movement lawyer" who took a wider interest in promoting the general political interests of those she represented, rather than only dealing with the specific charges against them. Stewart defended Weather Underground member David Gilbert, who was found guilty for his role in the 1981 Brinks armored car robbery in which two police officers and a security guard were murdered. In 1991, Stewart was subpoenaed to explain alternative fee arrangements with a gang member who she had been defending on a drug trafficking charge. Stewart refused the subpoena and eventually pleaded guilty to a contempt of court charge, a misdemeanor that would not result in her disbarment. Another high-profile client was Black Panther Willie Holder who hijacked Western Airlines Flight 701 on June 2, 1972, in an unsuccessful attempt to negotiate for the release of Angela Davis."
In 1991, with the help of Eric Holder, Bill Clinton commuted (pardoned) the sentence of fellow Weather Underground member to David Gilber (see above brinks armored car robbery client of Stewart) Linda Sue Evans.
In 2010 Stewart's attorneys tried to take the same tactic that the Lockerbie bomber took to gain release for humanitarian reasons:
"Stewart's breast cancer returned after she was imprisoned. Scheduled for surgery for other problems the week she was sentenced, Stewart instead had to wait eighteen months for that surgery. In the meantime the cancer metastasized to the point that her attending physician called it the worst case he had ever seen. She has received chemotherapy in custody but her condition is feared to be terminal. Human rights activists Dick Gregory and Desmond Tutu publicly endorsed a petition to grant her compassionate release, while conservative commentator Michelle Malkin has advocated that she should die in prison.
On June 25th, 2013, Stewart announced that she had received a letter stating that Federal Bureau of Prisons Director Charles Samuels had denied her request for compassionate release."
She, like the Lockerbie bomber, purports to be "terminal" when in fact she is still alive and kicking behind bars despite her doctor calling her cancer "the worst he has ever seen"!
So when I see that the Egyptian military is taking the fight to the radical Islamist Muslim Brotherhood in order to wipe them from existence, I applaud their deciciveness.
