McCain's Troubling Outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood

McCain's Troubling Outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Republican John McCain has been traveling the Mideast with a bipartisan delegation of his Senate colleagues. He seems to think the region’s ascendant Islamists of the Muslim Brotherhood are people America can do business with.

Call it pragmatism. Perhaps it is simply a cynical bid to secure the release of sixteen U.S. hostages, some of whom work in Egypt for the International Republican Institute, a non-governmental organization Sen. McCain has long chaired.

Whatever his rationale, John McCain’s warming to the Brotherhood is strategically catastrophic. It fails to recognize that group’s determination to destroy infidel nations like ours. It signals bipartisan support for giving the Brothers billions in foreign aid, and maybe arms. And it offers political cover to one of President Obama’s most insidious and destructive policies. This must not stand.
