Zero Hedge: “Deposed former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was sentenced to 20 years in prison today in connection with a crackdown on protesters during demonstrations against his rule in late 2012. Morsi, whose Muslim Brotherhood has been branded as a terrorist organization by now-President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, assumed the Presidency in 2012 after Hosni Mubarak was toppled a year earlier during the Arab Spring.
Now, with Morsi sentenced to nearly a quarter century behind bars, we thought it as good a time as any to resurrect the following Morsi-era quotes from Hillary Clinton who, like Egypt’s democratically elected former President, just wants what’s best for “everyday” people:
“We want to be a good partner and we want to support the democracy that has been achieved by the courage and sacrifice of the Egyptian people.”
Opinion: The crack Obama foreign policy team gave legitimacy to the once banned Muslim Brotherhood, showering them with:
- Front row seats to the 2009 Cairo speech
- Numerous visits from the Secretary of State
- An invitation to visit Washington DC
- 200 Abrams tanks
- 4 (state of the art) F16 fighter jets
- $1.5 billion US (taxpayer) dollars
And, saving the best for last … a fractured relationship with Israel and the US.
WAY TO GO TEAM!
