    to be included in Cairo guvment seems to be going unheeded

    The Obama administration’s call for an “inclusive” political process in Egypt with a role for the Muslim Brotherhood has been overshadowed by deadly clashes between security forces and supporters of the Islamist group.
    Violent protests yesterday in Cairo and elsewhere over the military’s ouster of President Mohamed Mursi raised doubts about prospects for an eventual accommodation that would allow the Brotherhood that supports him to compete in new elections.
    While President Barack Obama’s administration has stopped short of condemning the July 3 military takeover, it has called on Egyptian leaders to pursue “a transparent political process that is inclusive of all parties and groups,” including “avoiding any arbitrary arrests of Mursi and his supporters,” Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, said July 4 in a statement.
    The administration has urged the Egyptian military to stop using heavy-handed tactics, according to two U.S. officials who asked not to be identified commenting on private communications. They said the administration is concerned that some in the military may want to provoke the Islamists to violence and provide a rationale for crushing the movement once and for all.
    Such a move would fail and probably prompt a shift to al-Qaeda type terrorist tactics by extremists in the Islamist movement in Egypt and elsewhere, the U.S. officials said.
    Changing the Game
    Participating in politics means agreeing that differences will be settled through political means, said Jon Alterman, director of the Middle East program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington policy group.
    “What I think the Brotherhood has concluded is the game is stacked, and the only way to get what they deserve is to change the game, not to play in the game,” Alterman said in an interview for Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capitol with Al Hunt” airing this weekend. “That’s a big change from where the Brotherhood was a year ago.”
    At least 12 people died and scores were hurt yesterday as security forces clashed with Islamist supporters of Mursi, who has been detained since his ouster.
    The Muslim Brotherhood had appealed for peaceful demonstrations following the crackdown on its leadership, and its supreme guide, Mohammed Badie, spoke at a pro-Mursi rally last night, denying reports in state-run media that he had been arrested. The military-appointed government had said it would respect such protests.

    So he supports a group that has ties to terrorism and he doesn't want to have anything to do with the will of the people. I have seen this somewhere before.....

    Muslim Brotherhood has ties to terrorism - Fact

    Obama supports Muslim Brotherhood and gives them money...

    US is between a rock and a hard place

    Supporting democracy (they voted in Morsi) and the will of the people in Egypt (mob rule)

    Obviously Morsi is thwarting democracy himself, but you ideally want him to step down due to another being elected over him

    I wasn't talking about the validity of his claim really, just the fact that he tried to bring Bush into it.

    i know this is hard for you to get, because it asks you to look deeper then the surface, but Obama isn't siding with the "Muslim Brotherhood", but walking a tight rope with siding publicly with free democratic elections and respecting the will of the people of Egypt

    in democracy, elected officials are not supposed to be removed by mob rule

    i highly doubt he personally gives a chit about Morsi

    Nobody seems to be listening to Obama. We are riding out the next 3 1/2 years. Obama, please go away and leave us alone. Go to Martha's Vineyard. It will be cheaper and less annoying.

    Didn't the will of the people actually elect Morsi?
