Never mind that the Ikhwan — a.k.a. Muslim Brotherhood — a widely recognized terrorist organization for decades up until last year, now rules Egypt. Mr. Obama wants warm relations through donating continued billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars, which explains why the Brotherhood visited the White House earlier this year. The Ikhwan like Mr. Obama. They should, since they owe him big time. If not for Mr. Obama pushing our long-term ally Hosni Mubarak aside last year, they probably wouldn’t be in power now.
So who knows what Mr. Obama’s next moves will be on pursuing justice in Libya, releasing terrorists linked to radical Islam and managing the increasing casualties in Afghanistan. In his administration’s fantasy world, apparently anything is possible.
