UPDATE #2 SAT 06/06/2015 8:15am: As expected none of the eunuch-palace-scribes at either the White House or State Department briefings asked about Gertz’s findings. I even checked to see if D.O.D./Pentagon was having a briefing or had had one recently and they just linked to State. Gosh, I miss journalism.
UPDATE #1 FRI 06/05/2015 8:30am: I wonder if The New York Times was “asked” to write the inane Editorial I commented & blogged on just the other day because The White House knew this piece from Gertz was coming? Things that make you go ‘hmm’.
This is quite possibly the worst thing ever written about any American president ever by quite possibly the best reporter on intelligence matters in America, Bill Gertz (And that’s not just my opinion. Mr. Gertz is widely regarded as the “go-to” guy for his razor-sharp mind and deep & impeccable sources. The only other reporter I would put anywhere near him is Catherine Herridge of Fox News.)
I know I sound hyperbolic, but dear God… Gertz is basically reporting that our President has given aid & comfort to the enemy. And not just any enemy. This enemy ties each of a woman’s arms and legs to four cars then speeds off (yeah…), rapes an 8 year old girl in front of her family then makes each watch while the others get beheaded one by one, crucifies 3 year old boys, drops gays off rooftops, plays soccer with decapitated heads… burns a caged man alive… I mean… even members of the administration have said publicly they’ve never seen such depravity.
This charge about Obama has been made made many, many, many times before, but never from a source as universally respected as Gertz. The only thing wrong with it is the White House Press Corps, most prominently ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, The Washington Post, will never, ever, ever touch it because Gertz now writes for a “right-wing” source (He published this in The Washington Times, but he also writes for The Washington Free Beacon, a newer paper without the sort of strange background as the WT). It might possibly come up at a State Department briefing. Possibly even a Pentagon briefing. If it does, I’ll update.)
I’m still sort of thunderstruck so I’ll just stop here and invite you to read the American Thinker’s take on it, below.
Via The American Thinker – Gertz Expose: Pentagon docs show Obama supports Muslim Brotherhood
Bill Gertz, top Pentagon reporter for the Washington Times has just reported that “Obama secretly backed Muslim Brotherhood.” The Brotherhood is literally a fascist Muslim radical group from the Nazi period.
President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.” (Aka ISIS).
The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11[.] … The directive was produced in 2011[.] …
Efforts to force the administration to release the directive or portions of it under the Freedom of Information Act have been unsuccessful. …
The directive outlines why the administration has chosen the Muslim Brotherhood, which last year was labeled a terrorist organization by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as a key vehicle of U.S. backing for so-called political reform in the Middle East. …
The UAE government also has labeled two U.S. affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society, as terrorist support groups. Both groups denied the UAE claims. Egypt is considering imposing a death sentence on Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood-backed former president who was ousted in military coup in July 2013.
Critics of the administration’s strategy say the Brotherhood masks its goals and objectives despite advocating an extremist ideology similar to those espoused by al Qaeda and the Islamic State, but with less violence. The group’s motto includes the phrase “jihad is our way.” Jihad means holy war and is the Islamist battle cry.
Counterterrorism analyst Patrick Poole said the Brotherhood in recent weeks has stepped up its use of violent attacks in Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood is called the “Ikhwan” in Arabic, meaning “brotherhood.” (Like German “ich” and “won.”) It took that name in 1928, when fascist and Nazi “brotherhoods” were spreading all over Europe.
From the start, the Ikhwan actively collaborated with Hitler through the mufti of Jerusalem. One of their slogans is “All we want is to die in the way of Allah” – which means killing as many infidels as you can when you die. This is the theological basis for suicide-bombing. Today, there is no daylight between the Ikhwan and ISIS.
In 1981, an Ikhwan front group assassinated Pres. Anwar Sadat, the most important Arab peacemaker with Israel.
The Ikhwan employs Malik Obama, the president’s half-brother, as a big money man.
The Ikhwan created Hamas – the terrorist group that uses children as human shields to protect rocket launchers in Gaza.
The Ikhwan helped neo-Ottoman fascist Erdoğan to take over Turkey.
The Ikhwan is almost certainly behind ISIS, together with Turkey and Qatar.
In 2011, the Ikhwan overthrew Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak – who upheld the Egypt-Israel peace treaty for four decades – in close collusion with Obama, Code Pink, and Bill Ayers. The Western media actually reported that Code Pink and Bill Ayers were protesting Hosni Mubarak in the weeks before Mubarak was overthrown. Today, millions of Egyptians believe that Obama supports their mortal enemy, the Ikhwan.
The Ikhwan is now engaged in a monumental civil war against President El Sisi, whose court just condemned its leader to death. Their leaders who are not in jail have fled to Qatar, Turkey, and Gaza, all part of the Ikhwan network.
The Ikhwan controls American front groups like CAIR, which buys up American politicians by the truckload, especially on the left.
Four-star admiral James Lyons (USN, Ret.) has gone public with the charge that the Ikhwan has deeply penetrated U.S. intelligence. That is why Obama can’t even say the words “Muslim war on America.” That is why our defense has been so feeble and cringing.
Hillary Clinton’s closest personal aide as SecState was Huma Abedin – an Ikhwan insider. Abedin was one of the few people who had access to Hillary’s illegal personal e-mail account on the night of Benghazi. Nothing has changed – Abedin is still at the top of the Hillary campaign. Probably for the first time in U.S. history, presidential candidate Hillary has stonewalled any media questions, period.
Major Ikhwan money flows have been reported going to the Clintons, the Carters, and Obama. Ikhwan penetration of American society and the U.S. government gives all the appearance of a political quid pro quo – with our survival at stake.
Bill Gertz’s Pentagon documents now prove the Ikhwan connection directly. The liberal media will try to stifle the facts, as always.
Maybe this time they will fail.
