Muslim Brotherhood took ‘billions’ from Obama: Egypt lawyers

via Muslim Brotherhood took ‘billions’ from Obama: Egypt lawyers. h/t gp

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has been accused of taking 10 billion Egyptian pounds (U.S. $1.5 billion) from the American government, according to claims by Egyptian lawyers.

An immediate investigation into the accusation was ordered by Prosecutor General Talaat Abdallah on Thursday.

The lawyers, Mohamed Ali Abd al-Wahab and Yasser Mohamed Sayab, filed the complaint against the Muslim Brotherhood for the allegedly illegal money transaction, Egypt’s private daily Al-Masry Al-Youm reported on Jan. 3.

The complaint noted that Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for the recent U.S. presidential election, had said that $1.5 billion was given to support Egypt’s Brotherhood by the Obama administration.

In addition, the lawyers accused the Muslim Brotherhood of having armed mercenaries or a “third party,” who have instigated violence during and after the revolutionary uprising in the country.

The armed mercenaries are trained in the desert, which lies between the city of Alexandria and Marsa Matrouh in Egypt, the lawyers alleged.

An unattributed quote to Mitt Romney is not a very reliable source.

But, if the Muslim Brotherhood hasn’t taken the $1.5B yet, we do know Obama has offered it and more. Obama and Clinton gave US taxpayer dollars to help train Muslim Brotherhood candidates in the political process and we know Obama promised the Muslim Brotherhood $1B in aid plus $1B in debt forgiveness, and millions in military equipment.

  1. And when Morsi makes his official visit in the near future, wait for the top of his list of requests, the release of the Blind Sheik. And odds on, Obama will find a “compassionate reason” to accommodate. Only if he rejects the request, will we see a president worthy of the US, as well as the West.

  2. They already tried to set him free with a Hellery deal. Its not like zero to turn his back on his friends. Expect him to try again. His advisers “Muslim brotherhood” are always giving advice to him.
