So after making the spectacularly stupid statement that the Muslim Brotherhood is “largely secular” (!!!!!), Politico reports, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has begun “backing away” from his statement.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is backing away from comments he made Thursday calling Egypt’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood movement “largely secular.”
“To clarify Director Clapper’s point — in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood makes efforts to work through a political system that has been, under Mubarak’s rule, one that is largely secular in its orientation — he is well aware that the Muslim Brotherhood is not a secular organization,” a spokesman for Clapper, Jamie Smith, said Thursday afternoon.
This is what’s going on at the top of the intelligence community in the Obama Administration?
This guy should be fired before the sun rises.
