FROM OBAMA'S WONDERFUL NEW EGYPTIAN FAVORITES – AT 10:27 A.M. ET:  As if to confirm the post just below, we have a pretty grim report from the "new" Egypt.  Remember, these are the boys Obama constantly defends and explains away.  From Britain's Daily Mail:   

Egypt's ruling party is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo's Tahrir Square against President Mohamed Morsi, activists said.

They also said the Muslim Brotherhood is paying gangs to beat up men who are taking part in the latest round of protests, which followed a decree by President Morsi to give himself sweeping new powers.

It comes as the Muslim Brotherhood co-ordinated a demonstration today in support of President Mohamed Morsi, who is rushing through a constitution to try to defuse opposition fury over his newly expanded powers.

Just 24 hours earlier around 200,000 people gathered in Tahrir Square, the heart of last year's revolution which toppled President Hosni Mubarak, yesterday to protest against a new draft constitution.

Large marches from around Cairo flowed into the square, chanting 'Constitution: Void!' and The people want to bring down the regime.'

But amid the calls for democracy a sinister threat has emerged.

Magda Adly, the director of the Nadeem Centre for Human Rights, said that under Mubarak, the Government paid thugs to beat male protestors and sexually assault women.

'This is still happening now,' she told The Times. 'I believe thugs are being paid money to do this ... the Muslim Brotherhood have the same political approaches as Mubarak,' she said.

COMMENT:  Please note the lack of interest on the part of  "human rights" groups in the U.S., including so-called "women's groups."  After all, would Barack betray us?  Yeah, I'm afraid he would.

And if you think Egypt is getting bad, some 30,000 have been murdered in Syria.  We're preparing to help the opposition, but they've reportedly been infiltrated by Al Qaeda.

What a foreign policy we have.  Nothing succeeds like failure.
