Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates dropped a bombshell this week when he revealed that President Barack Obama basically paved the way for the Muslim Brotherhood to assume control in Egypt, suggesting that he wanted this to happen all along, by ignoring the advice given to him by his National Security Team.
“Literally, the entire national security team recommended unanimously handling Mubarak differently than we did,” Gates said, referring to former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who voluntarily resigned on Feb. 11, 2011, in response to the U.S.-backed Arab Spring.
According to Conservative Tribune, Obama instead chose to follow “the advice of three junior backbenchers,” one of whom urged him to “be on the right side of history.”
“And I would be sitting there at the table, and I’d say, ‘Yeah, if we could just figure that out, we’d be a long way ahead,” Gates added.
Mubarak’s fall from grace in 2011 led directly to the rise of Mohamed Morsi, an illegally elected Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated extremist who persecuted Christian minorities during his time as leader, until the Egyptian military was finally able to oust him from power in 2013.
A year later, former Defense Minister Abdel Fattah el-Sisi won the presidency and immediately moved to ban the Muslim Brotherhood from his nation.
Once again, a blunder of Obama’s has been exposed for the entire world to see. SHARE if you think he should be impeached!
