Joe Klein on Morning Joe this morning said the Obama administration is “slow-walking aid to the al-Sisi government.”
The reason why the Regime is stiffing our ally in the fight against ISIS, Klein explained, is because the al Sisi government came to power by overthrowing the Obama favored Muslim Brotherhood.
“I think it comes from the NSC – which is pretty weak – and also there are a group of people both at the State Dept and the NSC who are – um – who are…*humanitarians and human rights advocates,” Klein explained.
“Why wouldn’t they be the most mad?” Nicolle Wallace interjected.
“They’re mad at General Sisi because he staged a coup and got rid of the Muslim Brotherhood – and the Muslim Brotherhood is a milder form of the same kind of Salafist philosophy that ISIS has,” he answered.
An appalled Scarborough said, “so are you telling me that we have Egypt bombing ISIS, fighting ISIS, going to the UN against ISIS… fighting Hamas, and we’re not supporting them because we don’t like how he got in power?”
Klein: “Mm hmm.”
Scarborough: “Uh okay.”
