And...WHY aren’t they COUNTING THE DAYS of this travesty on the evening news (as it was in the days of the Carter administration)?

Really? Hillary said a few words, and then dropped it. Obama doesn't seem to have noticed it, but wants to increase aid to the Muslim Brotherhood. And the media have pretty much ignored it.

This is building up into a real crisis, all right. But who's minding the store?

In all honesty I don't really care. These self important meddlers cause far more trouble than they are worth. If you swim with sharks and get bit, ski down a wilderness slope and get buried in an avalanche, hike out into the desert, get lost and die of thirst, I'm sorry for you-- but it isn't my problem.

I am pretty sure these idiots are the ones who went to the ME with Ayers and stirred up this “Arab Spring” under the tutalage, training, pay and support of Soros.

And that is why this isn’t the news it should be.

I second that.

Any jack-wipe who wanders into a third world hell hole and begins mucking around with their politics (especially after a violent revolution) deserves everything they get.

Just like those hikers who wandered into Iran, so long to bad garbage.

They were community organizers, agitators. Resulted in the murder and attacks on Christians, destabilization, increased security risks to Israel and US. Includes Soros and his subversive meddling .

From related article at Drudge

...there is no dispute that the two groups and their staffs have broken the letter of Egyptian law. Both groups sought, but never received, licenses from the Egyptian government, and both are openly financed from abroad. They therefore violate two restrictions on civil groups left over from government of Hosni Mubarak...

Not much. They were given “ assurance that they (Egyptians) are working very diligently to try to resolve the NGO issue”
