Obama quickly congratulates Mohammed Morsi on his Muslim Brotherhood victory in Egypt
Why am I not surprised. Many people said this is what Obama wanted all along, and I don’t doubt it. So eager was Obama to congratulate the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, it was announced just minutes after Morsi was declared the winner. The statement from Obama released by propaganda minister Jay Carney even mentions that he is “eager” to work together with Morsi and “the government he forms.” Obama isn’t ever this eager to call families or fallen soldiers, or even the family of Brian Terry.
“The United States congratulates Dr. Mohamed Morsi on his victory in Egypt’s Presidential election, and we congratulate the Egyptian people for this milestone in their transition to democracy.
