WND Baselessly Blames Obama for What Anonymous People Are Supposedly Claiming
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Feb. 7 worldNetDaily article by Aaron Klein carries the subhead, "Look what Obama's support for Islamist group is doing." What is is that Obama is supposedly "doing"?

An Egyptian Islamist terrorist organization founded by the Muslim Brotherhood is re-establishing itself amid the political upheaval in Cairo, WND has learned.

Both Egyptian and Israeli security officials said the group, Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, is being reconstituted at the direction of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The officials affirmed Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya serves as the de fact [sic] "military" wing of the Brotherhood, which originally founded Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya.


The information comes after the U.S. tacitly approved the Muslim Brotherhood's involvement in political dialogue in Egypt.

At no point does Klein demonstrate any direct corellation between the Obama administration "tacitly approv[ing]" participation of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt's "political dialogue" and the purported return of Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya -- not even the anonymous sources Klein quotes. So the WND headline is a lie -- just another way Klein and WND are serving as a Mubarak mouthpiece.

By the way, is Klein ever going to quote an actual named person about Egypt? He hasn't so far.
