Fun yet?

One of the things that fell out of the destabilizing of the west-favorable dictator in Egypt to make way for the Muslim Brotherhood, was that their radical factions had garnered some negative press that was getting in the way of our continuing to bankroll them.  We had been sending $2 billion a year of “foreign aid” to prop up the dictator, so it was necessary to make sure that those tax dollars continued to flow to the Muslims so that they would be able to take over the government there.  It seems that there were some Americans in Egypt who actually WERE interested in democracy, rather than the takeover of Egypt by a radical faction.  They had been working to promote actual democracy.  You know the type.  They would have been categorized by Lenin as “useful idiots”.  So they had been promoting actual democratic reforms all over the place, rather than bow out of the way of the Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover.  So the Muslim Brotherhood threw them in jail.  Bad press.

It seems that their plight actually garnered some attention here in the states, to the point that the press raised some questions and it caused there to be a holdup of the routine transfer of that $2 billion into Muslim Brotherhood coffers.  Which was threatening not only to the Muslim Brotherhood’s efforts in Egypt, but also putting in jeopardy their bankrolling of their efforts to set up themselves as the government in multiple other Middle Eastern countries as well, like in Libya.  Which was putting the whole establishment of a caliphate in the Middle East at risk.

So after being prevailed on by our Secretary of State, Hillary, they released those 19 Americans.  So our federal government released those $2 billion and it got transferred.  Theoretically the end of it.  Not quite.  It seems that there are some “purists” in the Muslim Brotherhood who could not STAND the idea that someone was working against them in Egypt and then could just walk away for a silly little $2 billion in ransom money.  So they called up Interpol to extradite those people back to Egypt to stand trial. 

Which shouldn’t be a big deal.  After all this is the United States.  What do we care about a silly little mostly European international police agency?  Do they even have cell phones yet? 

Well, normally it wouldn’t be a big deal.  Except that on December 17, 2009, Presbo signed Executive Order 13524, amending a prior Executive Order 12425:

This little amendment, authorized Interpol to operate within the United States and with full diplomatic immunity, essentially unencumbered by any US laws.

Which means that, even as we speak, agents from Interpol are out searching in the US to arrest and drag those 19 Americans back to the Muslim Brotherhood jails in Egypt to stand trial for opposing the Muslim Brotherhood.  All without press or fanfare.

About the only thing that has been done is that Rand Paul has attached an amendment to the Post Office bill to cut off the Muslim Brotherhood funding entirely.

    Glad to have your eyes doing due diligence on my stuff. I keep running across things that don’t seem to be getting a lot of press, that seem to be major.
