Egypt Stuff

I call Bullshit on this.

The American government secretly backed leading figures behind the Egyptian uprising who have been planning “regime change” for the past three years, The Daily Telegraph has learned.

 

When I saw that yesterday, I thought it seemed awfully conveeeenient[/churchlady], it appeared to be a way to say, “Look, Obama is helping!”

Especially given this from the Puff Hos linked at Gateway Pundit.

In its first year, the Obama administration cut funding for democracy and governance programming in Egypt by more than half, from $50 million in 2008 to $20 million in 2009 (Congress later appropriated another $5 million). The level of funding for civil society programs and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) was cut disproportionately, from $32 million to only $7 million.

Now that’s what I expect from the man who sided with the thugs every time or at best told both sides to “tone it down”. Like in Iran, where the gov’t was shooting people and the people were trying not to be shot and Obama said that they both needed to step back.

I don’t know what’s happening, but I can’t help but think Egypt is fucked.

On the one hand, they have El Baradei who’s a tool of the Iranians, as can be seen in how he handled any objections to their “Let’s kill the Jews” nukular program.

On the other hand, they have the new VP who was the head of the secret police. That’s like if Beria succeeded Stalin. Sort of an out of the fire into the acid bath sort of deal.

    Well… if they want to say it’s been going on for “three” years, remind them who was President 3 years ago.

    Take the credit away from him.
