Looking in the rearview mirror at Barack Obama’s Middle East policy, a clearer perspective has emerged. It shows a feckless leader who chose the Muslim Brotherhood to organize the Middle East and fight terrorism. In his mind and the collective minds of his advisers, they were the “moderates.”
A directive known as Presidential Study Directive 11 aka PSD-11 detailed his plan for the remapping of the Middle East.
Obama’s pursuit of the Muslim Brotherhood began early in his presidency. He invited the terror group to his apology speech at Al Azhar University in Cairo in June 2009. Mubarak and his cabinet did not attend Obama’s meeting because of their presence.
Under a directive he issued, Barack Obama and his sycophants in the White House, planned the decimation of the Middle East though they thought they were saving the region by organizing and supporting an Islamist takeover of at least four countries. In some cases, the administration armed the terrorist insurgents, always believing them to be moderates.
The president even chose who would lead the Middle East. He chose the Muslim Brotherhood.
