Kirsten Powers excuses funding Muslim Brotherhood, says we are funding Egyptian government

I do like Kirsten Powers but I don’t like her logic here. She suggested tonight that Obama didn’t wake up one day and decide to fund the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, but rather he is funding Egypt as we have for many years and it’s dishonest to suggest otherwise:

So is Obama stupid, ignorant or is he willfully sending 1.5 billion to a government run by the Muslim Brotherhood? It can’t be all of the above. Now that Egypt has a new government shouldn’t we re-evaluate whether we want to fund it? Why send 1.5 billion to Islamic terrorist just because we’ve always funded Egypt’s government with aid packages? Or would Kirsten’s position the same if Al Qaeda were elected in Egypt and Obama sent them 1.5 billion? I’d hardly think she’d approve of that, but she’d likely say he didn’t know what he was doing or something.

Excuses.
