Obama Administration Normalizing Ties with Muslim Brotherhood

I don't mean to alarm anyone but this is extremely alarming in light of the 'Arab Spring' and recent developments in Libya. Time to take stock of what we know so far. In Libya, this administration is supporting rebels whose goals are backed by the Muslim Brotherhood - overthrowing Gadhafi. Obama is thumbing his nose at the War Powers Act; Hillary Clinton chided Congress by asking, 'whose side are you on?' which was an assertion that she sides with the rebels; Hillary's Deputy Chief of Staff - a practicing Muslim - has familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood; Senior Hillary Clinton adviser Alec Ross is running interference for the Muslim Brotherhood; and senior State Department lawyer Harold Koh, who is also a supporter of Sharia law supports the war effort in Libya.

Now this via Reuters. See if you can find the misplaced use of the word 'conservative' in the article:
BUDAPEST (Reuters) - The United States will resume limited contacts with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton confirmed on Thursday, saying it was in Washington's interests to deal with parties committed to non-violent politics.

While Clinton portrayed the administration's decision as a continuation of an earlier policy, it reflects a subtle shift in that U.S. officials will be able to deal directly with officials of the Islamist movement who are not members of parliament.

The move, first reported by Reuters on Wednesday, is likely to upset Israel and its U.S. supporters who have deep misgivings about the Brotherhood, a group founded in 1928 that seeks to promote its conservative vision of Islam in society.

Under president Hosni Mubarak, a key U.S. ally, the Brotherhood was formally banned, but since the ousting of the secular former general by a popular uprising in February, the Islamists are seen as a major force in forthcoming elections.
If the Muslim Brotherhood is so 'conservative,' why is it only supported by the liberals within this administration?

Buncha wackos.

Read it all.
