Former Def. Sec. Drops Bombshell: Obama WANTED Muslim Brotherhood to Take Over
During a recent interview with Fox News, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates revealed that President Barack Obama essentially paved the way for the Muslim Brotherhood to assume control in Egypt — thus suggesting that Obama wanted that to occur — by stubbornly ignoring the advice of his entire national security team.
“Literally, the entire national security team recommended unanimously handling Mubarak differently than we did,” Gates said in regard to former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who voluntarily resigned on Feb. 11, 2011, in response to the U.S.-backed Arab Spring.
But instead Obama chose to trust “the advice of three junior backbenchers,” one of whom urged him to “be on the right side of history.”
He added, “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.”
