Default Re: Muslim Brotherhood delegation meets with White House officials

Show me any country that has gone from terrorism/insurgency/war to peace and stability and I'll show you a host of important leaders (perchance even royalty) who have met with 'guerillas', 'rebels', and various other synonyms for today's "terrorists".

Seriously, we've already proven that you can't bomb extremism out of people, now do we really need to test the theory that we can eradicate it by applying the silent treatment? Because not talking to people is surely the way to get them to not hate you/want you dead?
Love pre-born babies more than unfettered choice, love convicted murderers more than merciless vengeance, love pulsing human hearts more than the right to stop even one from beating...Respect all life. Always.

It would also matter that, for better or worse, they are one of the leading parties in Egypt, which is exactly why McCain and the president have to meet with them. But if the point is just another excuse to portray things in a certain way in order to bash the president, then those things don't matter.

The aid is a resumption of the previous aid level to Egypt, not some kind of special present. That fact matters too.

Your link is to an opinion piece, not a news story, on a website that pretty much lost all its credibility this week after it had to fire two columnists for their ties to white supremacists and their over-the-top racist tirades.

Hint: When you see sentences like "Shater is Washington’s new darling," you are not getting news, you are getting rancor. Everything will be spun and twisted, and you are going to be deceived.
imho, neither should have met with them. But, McCain would never have met with them had Obama not brought them into the country in the first place. It was basically a 'me too, me too'.

Obama facilitated their entry, even though some of them were decidedly shady characters who shouldn't have been allowed entry without proper checks.

Since when does the American government meet with representatives from political parties from foreign countries, not as representatives of their country, but as representatives of their party?

The US is correct in rolling out the red carpet for official diplomats and facilitating their entry, but this mob do not represent Egypt, they represent the Muslim Brotherhood, an entirely different kettle of fish.

Meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood is essentially interferring in the internal politics of Egypt by favouring one party over another, especially with an election coming up.

In related news:
Egypt disqualifies 10 candidates from election
The Muslim Brotherhood's Khairat al-Shater was also among those disqualified.
