Welcome To Obama’s Arab Spring

In June 2009, President Obama stood in Cairo and offered up nothing less than the opening salvos of the later-vaunted Arab Spring. In fact, he allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to attend that speech; they received official invitations.

Obama said the United States and Muslim countries around the world would never mend broken fences by focusing on our differences, instead of commonalities. And while he said this in a way that seemed to mean he was speaking to “moderate” Muslims instead of Islamists, it’s demonstrable that since that time, the Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood have had a pretty easy go of it with Obama.
