Michelle Bachmann sees the Muslim Brotherhood behind every rock. She sees it in two public officials where, apparently, there is no connection what so ever.
The time has come to recognize the world as it actually is, not as seen through the emotional eyes we have used now for so many years. A better approach would be to reiterate this country’s principle of freedom of religion and endorse the public service of these two Muslim citizens. There are, after all, professional people who’s job it is to look for enemies of our country.
There is a lot of amature detective work in the Republican Party. Dick Chaney did not like the intelligence work done by professionals on the weapons of mass destruction issue. Because of this, he set up his own intelligence operation and made certain the people in it saw things the way he did.
The professionals, of course, were right. There were no weapons of mass destruction either. My guess is that professionals have not found anything subversive about these two Muslim officials.
What little I know about the Muslim Brotherhood is that it is in flux. If this is correct, it could become a worse enemy of the west, or, a better friend than it is now.
The oldest entry in the diplomacy play book is to pit groups that are unfriendly to us against each other. The worst thing is to unit them against us.
W. Bush did a good job or uniting opposition against us. Bachmann shows potential.
