Well, he apparently didn't step down- or learn anything.
He recently described the Muslim Brotherhood, of which 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta was a member, this way:
"The term 'Muslim Brotherhood'...is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam," Clapper said. "They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera.....In other countries, there are also chapters or franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence, at least internationally."
Spend 30 seconds and you can find out that the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood is,
Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope
How about James Clapper simply resign. Even if you're a fan of Jimmy Carter, er um, I mean Barrack Obama- you have to admit the guy isn't helping the administration. He's got to step down, and if he won't- then how about Obama put on his big boy pants and fire his azz?
Yeah, he said that this morning, in an open session, then the FBI director disagreed with him and said more talk is needed in closed sessions. hhmmmmm............ top dogs at odds about the intent of the MB???
Pretty bad when a reporter for the state controlled media says, "That doesn't make ANY sense...from my knowledge of the organization [inaudible] I've spent a LOT of time with them. If that's the Director of National Intelligence saying that the Muslim Brotherhood is largely secular, then that is a COMPLETE misreading of the organization, of the situation here in Egypt."
Now that makes more sense to me- the guy didn't get it wrong, like the UK arrests, he's completely ignorant. He pulled an answer out of his rear end that was way off. I wouldn't be surprised to learn he didn't know of, or never heard of the Muslim brotherhood before that question.
The Muslim Brotherhood guy sounds more authoritive to me on the issue of what the goal of the MB is than our idiot security guy. I heard a good one (MB leader) on Hannity last week-- much longer than this one-- said the same thing. MB does not deny what they want. There seems to be some selective listening going on in our country right now. And it's not all FOX news any more-- it is everywhere..

Barack Obama has replaced Jimmy Carter and has secured his spot as the single worst President in American history. This administration has demonstrated a mindblowing incompetence in fumbling the management of the crisis in Egypt. Obama's lack of experience doing, or accomplishing ANYTHING in life is shining through. He is cheering on an absolute catastrophe for the middle east, and the security of the United States of America. It will take 30 years to clean up after Obama- and we'll be lucky to last that long.
Yes I do but he just issued another statement about his "Secular" comment and tried to clarify what he meant....apparently Clapper never heard the old phrase "When you have dug yourself into a deep hole, guit digging"..
The Muslim Brotherhood is about as "Secular" as Hamas, or Hezbollah is IMHO

I just heard on the groove tube that there is a good chance they will take key rolls in gov't, not the pres job, but more important ones behind the scenes, because polls show that 60+& of Egyptians favor MB, while only 20% are more secular.

This isn't a 1960's sit in. This is a bloody revolution- perhaps the bloodiest revolution in history. And it kicks off in earnest this weekend. We'll see how it is handled, but my prediction is that terrorist allies of MB have been infiltrating the borders for weeks, and that there is destined to be a clash between the military and what our inept media will label "the people" or "Egyptian citizens". It won't be over after a few shots fired, either. Egypt is about to decend into civil war in a matter of hours or days.

I read a report two months ago that stated Iran had operatives in all the countries surrounding Saudi Arabia. Their goal was revolution. Their puppet has taken over Lebanon. Are they now taking over Egypt?
