Obama offers to meet with new Egyptian President Morsi. Let me guess, this would be Valerie Jarrett’s great idea, right? Bibi, you’re out, auf Wiedersehen.
The Egyptian leader’s visit to the United States was first reported by Reuters. “President Obama extended an invitation to President Morsi to visit the United States when he attends the U.N. General Assembly in September,” Egyptian aide Yasser Ali reportedly said after a meeting Sunday with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns.
Burns met with Morsi and Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamal Amr on Sunday to discuss ways for the United States to help boost Egypt’s weak economy. Burns said he emphasized “America’s strong commitment to building a new partnership with a new, democratic Egypt, founded on common interest and mutual respect,” according to a statement
“The United States will do all we can to help ensure a successful transition in Egypt,” Burns added.
Stop funding Egypt. They aren’t our ally. The Cairo speech was uber poo. BTW, why did Barack support the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak? Inquiring minds want to know.
