Bolton: Obama’s blindness to what motivates Egyptian President Morsi is a “bad, bad sign”

Bolton weighed in on the crisis in Egypt this morning, noting that he believes the worst outcome would be an agreement between the military and the Muslim Brotherhood that would exclude the pro-democracy faction and give the Muslim Brotherhood political dominance. He says despite the military and the Muslim Brotherhood seeming to be on opposite sides, that it’s possible they will work out an arrangement where they can both live together.

In response to a quote where Obama praised Morsi, saying he was impressed with Morsi who moved with an “engineer’s precision” and little ideology, Bolton said this shows Obama’s blindness to what motivates Morsi and is a “bad, bad sign for the US and Middle East in the weeks and months ahead.”
