Y'all check this out .

Well, I am sure he wants to personally thank President Obama for approving the "sale" of 125 Abrams M1A2 tanks, and 20 F-16 Falcon fighters to Egypt. I use sale in the abstract, as we taxpayers actually will pay for the transfer of this military hardware to the Muslim Brotherhood. May I remind us that this is the same President Obama who cancelled the sale of F-16 fighters to Taiwan, so as not to upset the Chinese. And Taiwan was actually going to pay for the planes.
Spiegel Online reports today that “Members of the Muslim Brotherhood are resorting to vigilante justice in Egypt's power struggle. During clashes with opponents of President Mohammed Morsi last Wednesday night, the Islamists took prisoners and tortured them with beatings. Eyewitness reports suggest that the police tolerated the attacks." The Spiegel report says that how much Morsi knew of the vigilante justice is not yet clear, but that: “something he said in a statement on national television last Thursday raises questions. Morsi said the detained had admitted to having ties to the political opposition and having been paid to carry out violence. He appeared to be referring to statements forced out of the prisoners by the Islamists.” http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/muslim-brotherhood-accused-of-vigilante-justice-during-clashes-in-cairo-a-872335.html
