Why Is General Mattis Nominating the Muslim Brotherhoods Stooge? A familiar face from the Obama disaster in Egypt.
Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis pick for undersecretary of defense for policy, Anne Patterson, is problematic.
Politico briefly explains why:
If nominated and confirmed, Patterson would hold the fourth most powerful position at the Pentagon -- and would effectively be the top civilian in the Defense Department, since both Mattis and his deputy, Robert Work, were military officers.
As ambassador to Egypt between 2011 and 2013, Patterson worked closely with former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his Islamist government. She came under fire for cultivating too close a relationship with the regime and for discouraging protests against it -- and White House officials are voicing concerns about those decisions now.
This is putting it mildly. Back during the months leading to the June 30, 2013 revolution, Patterson -- the Brotherhoods Stooge as she was called by all, from news analysts to the Egyptian street -- was arguably one of the most hated individuals by the millions of Egyptians who took to the streets against Morsi and the Brotherhood.
Not only did her face regularly appear next to Obamas in placards; it sometimes appeared alone, indicating just how closely she was seen as supporting the Brotherhood. It should be noted that these were not isolated sightings, as shown by the number of different placards and signs:

Really puzzling pick......
Where’s *her* moral compass??
[ Wheres *her* moral compass?? ]
One that points to Mecca.
One way to get rid of her would be to wait for her to FU, than fire her.
It shouldn’t take long.
There’s an article out there that she was already rejected by the White House.
This story has been posted many times in the last few days, from different sources, but all based on the Politico article.
I was outraged too when I first read it.
But apparently Trump is being sensible and doesn’t want her.
Gee, I wonder who will prevail.
Very very poor choice. She popped a cork when Morsi of the muslim brotherhood was ousted. She was there to facilitate the disastrous “arab spring” on behalf of the imam-in-chief.
More uniparty globalist staffing.
Those good at war fighting, like Mattis, doesn’t necessarily mean they are good at geo-political managing I’m getting less and less impressed with Mattis.
A Def. Sec. who cannot adequately identify the enemies of USA, wants a person sympathetic to the enemy to lead the Pentagon. What a deeply confused country; it’s more than gender confusion. It is a question of who the real god is.
Right beside her prayer rug...
Trump and Bannen better stay alert. Something stinks in the DOD and NSC, Mattis picks a Muzzy Brotherhood confidant while Trump picked a national security chief who doesn’t recognize Islamist terrorists. I don’t call this draining the swamp.
Mattis has shown his colors, dump him Mr. President, and fast.
Mattis, “You’re Fired”
And this kind of sheer idiocy is exactly what I feared Mattis would do.
He has no understanding of islam. Which makes him completely unqualified to be secdef. And McMaster is worse.
Me, too. I wasn’t particularly impressed...now I want him gone. He hasn’t got good sense.
Mattis needs to be watched. He played a long time on Obama’s team.
I had the same thought. Maybe this a way to get rid of another Obama stooge and make a headline of it. The news media avoids all things the make Democrats look bad. So if she does something really stupid, she can be fired very rapidly and with big headlines “Former Obama Employee Fired for Incompetence” or something like that.
