Obama: Switch Hitter

With the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt the probability of them attacking our best ally, Israel,  becomes more probable. So, why not arm a radicalized Egypt with better weapons of war?

I once headed up a corporation that sold goods to Egypt, a then Egypt exponentially more sane, and we had to stencil the sides of each crate with an images of an axe and a bloody severed hand to deter thieves once the product arrived in Egypt. Did wonders for our marketing. We also sold to Israel where there was little chance of theft and we didn't have to use graphic imagery because Israeli workers could read.

So, the Arab Spring of Obama will now be able to spring an attack on our ally using weapons from us. The switch hitting logic is astounding. And naive, but then that is the administration we have.
