Hillary is quite the pro at dodging enemy fire.

/dodges better than Monica, that's for sure

Just like Republicans. Weird, huh?

The protest appears to have been the result of suspicions that Washington had helped the Muslim Brotherhood win elections in Egypt...

Who did y'all Egyptians think was behind your "peoples' revolution"? The people? Hint: I highly doubt it was the USA..

Well, I was all "Talk to the hand", but then she was all,

"I want to be clear that the United States is not in the business, in Egypt, of choosing winners and losers, even if we could, which, of course, we cannot," Clinton said at the opening of the consulate.

Artful dodging, that is. The fark, Hilz?

The protest appears to have been the result of suspicions that Washington had helped the Muslim Brotherhood win elections in Egypt in the wake of last year's ouster of president Hosni Mubarak after 18 days of massive street protests.

So Obama IS a muslim!

FIFY, Hillary.

WTF you idiots. If we tried to steal an election in Egypt, we're NOT going to rig it for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Engage tinfoil:

So, we know elections are going to happen, and there is a strong chance a Muslim government comes out of it. We also know the secular military won't like that. We know that a secular military can keep the peace - see Turkey if you don't believe me. They've kicked out Muslim governments before and got new elections. So, rig the Muslim Brotherhood to win, and then encourage the military to jump in. The Supreme Court ruling dissolving the parliament was just icing on the cake. New elections, and the instability of the Muslim Brotherhood win, discredit them as a ruling party without letting them actually rule.

/tinfoil off

Probably from nowhere, most likely because this probably never happened, or if it did it was a couple of freaks on the street.

Is there even a shred to truth to this rumor? Genuinely curious.

If you read the opinions sections and comments sections of any news source from the Middle East, the U.S. and Israel are responsible for every evil that can potentially occur. We're a very convenient boogyman. Now, some of that may be well deserved, but the levels it goes to are absurd. So there was a 100% chance that around 50% of the population would blame us for their side losing the election.

This About That: The protest appears to have been the result of suspicions that Washington had helped the Muslim Brotherhood win elections in Egypt...

It probably was the USA. The Muslim brotherhood is probably the best group to secure the Suez Canal for US use against Chinese, Indian, and Russian interests. Traditionally the USA helps dictatorships shiat on their own people if their foreign policy is to enhance US global strategy. The Muslim Brotherhood is probably totally okay with that. Like the Saudis and the various dictators of South America.

I'm sure this is all Obama's fault somehow. Maybe Fox News or some neocon shill on Fark will tell me how.

The Egyptians have already run into the main problem with Muslim democracy: Islam and democracy are antithetifcal. That's not because Muslims are anti-democratic per se, but because Islam provides in the Koran a political template and democracy has nothing to do with it. So once given the opportunity to vote, the immediate impulse of the average religious Muslim is to vote away his voting rights and establish a traditional theocracy. It simply does not occur to him that Western style government might be superior to what his religion offers; the very idea that any non-Muslim thought or cultural mode might be superior to what their relgion affords them is, by definition, blasphemous and heretical.

Islam is not just a religion. It is a complete package, an ethical system, an aesthetic, a literature, and a legal system. Also, or so I've been told, the Arabic language is uniquely suited to poetry. The Koran is apparently ravishingly beautiful and as such, difficult to argue with. It's understandable under the circumstances that Muslim countries like Turkey and Indonesia where Arabic is not the primary language have succeeded more or less in achieving democratic government, while none of the Arab states have been able to do so. Farsi-speaking Iran is a special case and there may be hope for them, but if the Algerian and Palestinian experiences are any guide, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Iraq are probably headed in the direction nof theocracy or military dictatorship.

Also keep in mind the winners only won with what 52-53% of the vote... that's nearly half that wanted something/someone else... opposition shouldn't be hard to find.

The best guy for it was the one that got kicked out. The MB aren't the best group for US interests in Egypt either.

I can't wait for the Moslem but jobs to get more involved in US politics. It will happen one day. When it does, I can't wait for the results. Will the Leroy's who support Islam and claim rights are islamophobic embrace these people's overta bd blatantly blatant war on women. Not the silly one now, but downright abuse and murder of their own children. And if they go to the right. That would decimate the GOP. Which would make me laugh til I farted. It's gonna happen. Can't wait for the mooohammed cartoons

/way-oh-way-oh-waaaaaay-oooo.

After 60 years of being under the yoke of a military dictatorship the Egyptian people finally have an elected President who's been stripped of most of his power by the military who still have too much control and are actively undermining the democratic process.

With all that to contend with I find it odd that anyone over there would give a flying fig about an ancient scandal involving a consensual hummer.

The idea that Washington is best pleased by the installation of the MB into power in Egypt much less that they helped engineer that result is laughable non starter.
