I honestly do not know what to make of it.
Ha'aretz reports that from as early as spring, 2009, Barack Obama held a secret meeting with Brotherhood members in Washington, DC, and that the meeting was kept from public scrutiny.
Furthermore, according to this Reuters' story from October, 2011:
U.S. officials have met members of the Muslim Brotherhood's political party, a U.S. diplomat said, after Washington announced it would have direct contacts with Egypt's biggest Islamist group whose role has grown since U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak was ousted.
Washington announced the plans in June, portraying such contacts as the continuation of an earlier policy. But analysts said it reflected a new approach to the way it dealt with a group which Mubarak banned from politics.
This is something that needs to be further looked into, so if anyone can point me to additional material this would be greatly appreciated.
The only thing that I can say for sure is that if Barack Obama, or Obama administration officials, met with the Muslim Brotherhood in the spring of 2009 it suggests support for that organization. Furthermore, Obama's demand for Mubarak's resignation helped clear a path for the Brotherhood. This strongly indicates that the administration has quietly favored the Muslim Brotherhood all along.
Why would that be?
My guess is post-colonial ideology, not malice.
It's a dangerous naivete, and a willful ignorance of Jewish history and the history of radical Islam, combined with great power.
