Free Beacon reports that the State Department admitted that they are in fact quite comfortable doing business with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Meanwhile, Egypt condemned the visit, appropriately calling the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization:
Psaki went on to say that the Obama administration remains comfortable entertaining the Brotherhood.
“Are you—is the building comfortable with continuing to do business with this center, this group?” a reporter asked.
“Yes. Yes,” Psaki responded.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry condemned the visit and expressed frustration with the State Department for hosting the Brotherhood-aligned delegation, which was first reported by the Free Beacon.
“These statements are incomprehensible to me, we do not understand that there will be such a communication with the elements involved in terrorist acts to intimidate the Egyptians,” Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri was quoted as saying in the regional press.
“The Brotherhood is not a political party,” but “a terrorist organization,” Shukri said.
When a Muslim country is calling you out for entertaining an Islamic terrorist organization, you know you are doing it wrong.
