The day before all of this broke out, there was a threat on Arabic websites for the exact action that took place. Somebody's gonna have to get hold of that little spoke kid, Jay Carney, and tell him that it's not about the movie. And I'm gonna tell you something else, the Muslim Brotherhood has as one of its objectives, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, the Morsi, the leader, getting back the blind sheik. That is a demand that they have made, that they are making. They want the blind sheik, who had been in jail for 20 years, they want him released. They're demanding. Now, this is old. This one of the first things when this guy took office. Even during his campaign, such as it was, during the so-called elections in Egypt, getting back the blind sheik. So the day before, PJ Media, reputable blog outfit here, found an Arabic website where all of this was promised by jihadis, the day before it all happened.
If a reputable American blog has it, you would think the CIA would have it, and therefore it would have been in a President's Daily Brief. You would think all of this. Even if the president didn't get briefed, he gets the PDB, sophisticated consumer of intelligence, yada yada yada.
No, I would not expect Mrs. Clinton's State Department to know as much as people at PJ Media. I wouldn't expect her to. But the CIA, I would hope so. You know what I think? The more I think about this, I think this New York Times story today, I shared it with you in the previous hour. It is such a joke. The New York Times story claiming Obama had had enough and he called Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood president in Egypt, and gave him the riot act, said, (paraphrasing) "You guys need to do a better job protecting our embassy," and that he only said they weren't an ally just to scare the Egyptians and the Egyptians snapped to. What a crock.
What's really going on here is the Muslim Brotherhood is proving their power. The Muslim Brotherhood is telling us what-for with all of this. The idea, as the New York Times tried to do today, the idea that Barack Hussein Obama, on the campaign trail, is putting the fear of God in those people? The American flag's on fire all over the Middle East. The Al-Qaeda flag is being raised. Our ambassador to Libya's dead. And the New York Times tries to tell us that Obama has these guys on the run. What an absolute example of total media corruption. No other way to describe it. Total corruption.
I remember, too, it was reported that Morsi, in this phone call that the New York Times reports where Obama called Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood guy, read him the riot act, it is said that Morsi told Obama to prosecute the makers of this movie in the same phone call. And that in that call, Obama apologized for the denigration of Islamic religious beliefs. This is such a crock, which takes me to the polls. One crock to the next crock.
