Allen West Insists Muslim Brotherhood 'Infiltrated' Obama Administration
Former Congressman Allen West, who has left the door open to a political comeback, ripped President Barack Obama’s Middle East policies on Wednesday and claimed the Muslim Brotherhood has “infiltrated” the American government.
“In 2009 President Obama traveled to Egypt and delivered a very conciliatory speech at the University of Cairo. Not much later, events termed the ‘Arab Spring’ compelled President Obama to advocate for the deposing of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak,” West posted on Facebook on Wednesday. “Many warned of the rise of the ‘granddaddy of Islamic terrorism,’ the Muslim Brotherhood, in Egypt as the only viable and organized political entity. We were castigated as alarmists and Islamophobes. The Muslim Brotherhood even lied about running a candidate for president. We are now witnessing the result of our blindness. Read the Muslim Brotherhood's charter. Read the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Explanatory Memorandum Strategic Goal for North America that was uncovered during an FBI raid in Northern Virginia. Read Erick Stakelbeck's book, ‘The Brotherhood: America's Next Enemy.' And yes, we do have Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated groups and individuals infiltrated into this current Obama administration. This is serious.”
