Intelligence officials angered by Obama administration cover up of intelligence on Iranian, al Qaeda surge in Egypt and Libya
The Morsi government has turned a blind eye to both the increased jihadist activity and Iran’s support for it in the region, particularly in Libya and Syria.
However, the administration is keeping the intelligence under wraps to avoid highlighting Obama’s culpability for the democratic aspirations of the Arab Spring being hijacked by Islamists sympathetic to al Qaeda’s terrorist ideology.
Intelligence officials said in Egypt—currently ruled by the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood—one of the key al Qaeda organizers has been identified as Muhammad al-Zawahiri, brother of al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. Muhammad al-Zawahiri was released by Morsi in Marchafter having been sentenced to death for terrorist acts in Egypt.
In recent months Egypt-based al Qaeda terrorists were dispatched to Libya and Syria, where they have been covertly infiltrating Libyan militia groups and Syrian opposition forces opposing the Bashar al Assad regime.
In addition to Egyptian government backing, intelligence from the region has revealed that operatives from Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security, the main spy service, and from Iran’s Quds Force paramilitary group and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps are also facilitating al Qaeda terrorists based in Egypt that are preparing to conduct operations to increase instability throughout the region.

Obama’s foreign policy is a phony facade that is unraveling daily in the Middle East, while it masquerades as the success of his administration. There is nothing true or good about it.
This is the picture he wants us to see:
And this is the picture that is etched on our minds…
After all there was this reminder….
Move over Gadaffi, we can do it better without you.
The American Thinker reported, just prior to the foreign policy debate:
“A recent Zogby poll showed America to be less popular in the Arab world than before Obama took office. In Egypt, 30% viewed America favorably before 2008, compared to 5% today. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), a Republican Senate candidate, says the 2009 Cairo speech “upset the whole apple cart. His Cairo speech was about apologizing and thinking he could singlehandedly change the Middle East dynamics because of the power of his phenomenal personality.”
