It was announced today that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has won the country's Presidential election. This comes after former leader Hosni Mubarak was forced from power as his long time ally, the United States, backed his exit.
The White House does not want you to remember some facts today. Unfortunately for them, the internet never forgets.
In February of last year, the White House was very busy giving the Muslim Brotherhood free PR. This prompted the Telegraph to write an article entitled, "The Muslim Brotherhood gets a PR makeover from the Obama administration."
In the piece, Administration officials are quoted as saying that the Muslim Brotherhood is a "largely secular" organisation that "eschewed violence." Today, after winning the Presidency, the M.B. declared that, "Allah willing," their new capital would be in Jerusalem. Something tells me that they are planning something that does not "eschew violence."
And the most ironic piece of news is that, back when the White House was giving the Brotherhood free publicity, the M.B. decided to declare that they would not seek the Egyptian Presidency. The White House welcomed the news. And this is the most ironic screenshot of the day (click on the image for better quality):
So after a year of guessing, the White House is shown to be completely wrong and incompetent. Better, the Left enjoyed whining that Republicans were making a big deal out of the Muslim Brotherhood and that it was a political witchhunt.
But I'm certain that they would never use such wrong, broken, deceitful rhetoric again, right? Right? Oh, yeah.
