After Meeting With State Dept Officials in DC, Muslim Brotherhood Promptly Declares “Open Jihad” In Egypt

An update to this story – which was disturbing enough – becomes even more troubling:

Via the Washington  Free Beacon:

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.

Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.

The State Department meeting was attended by a deputy assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor and other State Department officials.

The Muslim Brotherhood statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.

A State Dept flack told the WFB, “We meet with representatives from across the political spectrum in Egypt.”

The Muslim Brotherhood has been designated a Terrorist organization by Egypt, Syria, Russia, UAE, and Saudi Arabia.

Supposedly, this is “an embarrassment” for the State Department, according to “Egypt experts.”

“The fact that the Brotherhood issued its call to jihad two days after its meeting at the State Department will be grist for endless anti-American conspiracy theories about a supposed partnership between Washington and the Brotherhood,” said Eric Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). “The State Department should have foreseen what an embarrassment this would be.”

The fact that the Obama administration backs radical Islamist groups over stable regimes is embarrassing indeed.

The Obama administration conducted an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 and 2011, beginning even before the events known as the “Arab Spring” erupted in Tunisia and in Egypt. The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.

To this day, PSD-11 remains classified, in part because it reveals an embarrassingly naïve and uninformed view of trends in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

The revelations were made by Al Hewar centre in Washington, DC, which obtained the documents in question.

Through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, thousands of pages of documentation of the US State Department’s dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood are in the process of being declassified and released to the public.

US State Department documents obtained under the FOIA confirm that the Obama administration maintained frequent contact and ties with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood. At one point, in April 2012, US officials arranged for the public relations director of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Gaair, to come to Washington to speak at a conference on “Islamists in Power” hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

It’s not a “conspiracy theory” to notice that this administration always come down on the side of Islamists – even over moderate Muslim reformers like the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. It’s the absolute truth.

 

Saturday Movie Matinee: Hagel Admits He Was Pressured By WH To Release Gitmo Detainees

Via Twitchy:

Outgoing Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel admitted that he was under pressure from White House officials to step up the controversial releases of detainees from Gitmo:

We can add Hagal to the number of Obama appointees who were yes-men while in office, but became detractors upon leaving. (See Leon Panetta, and  Henry Gates.) The question I always have, is – if you felt so strongly about a policy you disagreed with – why didn’t you speak out against the policy and announce your resignation at the time?

National Review: Sheriff David Clarke Rips Holder’s Anti-Cop Attitude at Senate Hearing:

  Attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch needs to mend the “frayed relationship” between police and the Department of Justice created by Eric Holder, says Milwaukee County’s Democratic sheriff, David Clarke.

Clarke, a defender of policing efforts and champion of gun rights in recent years, spoke at Lynch’s confirmation hearing on Thursday to criticize Holder’s tenure as attorney general, especially in the wake of 2014’s events in Ferguson, Mo.

“The incendiary rhetoric used by Eric Holder created the pathway for a false narrative that then became the rallying cry for cop-haters across America,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee. “It sparked unjustified hatred towards America’s law enforcement agencies and its officers.”​

Here’s Sheriff Clarke a few weeks ago setting a CNN host straight about the tiff between cops and the (Democrat) political class – described in all caps as a “SMACKDOWN.”

Obama/Holder/DeBlasio put out their insincere “pro-cop” statements specifically for useful idiots like this CNN host to latch upon so they can all pretend the last six months (six years, really) of anti-cop rhetoric and policies didn’t happen.

FrontPageMagazine: Madtv – Michael Moore (Paul Vogt) gets beat up by Barbara Bush:

Who knew poor Michael Moore is living in fear for his life because of threats posed by elderly Republicans? It’s true.

Playing the victim card,  Moore posted on Facebook a “threat” (actually a joke) then 74 year old Clint Eastwood made ten years ago.

This old Mad TV skit showing Moore getting the crap beat out of him by Barbra Bush is hilariously apropos:

 

 After almost a decade of irrelevance Michael Moore is desperately using the American Sniper controversy where he called soldiers cowards to try and claw back his way to fame as if it were a chicken sandwich.

But Moore is running low on material so now he’s playing the victim. The victim of an 84-year-old man.

He posted on his Facebook page a message entitled: “The Day Clint Eastwood Said he Would ‘Kill’ Me, 10 Years Ago This Week,” and that included — in conclusion — that those who issue scathing verbal attacks are akin to Islamic State terrorists.
