Host: Vic Eliason
Guest: Walid Shoebat
Walid Shoebat, a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, is now a peace activist as well as an analyst of Islam and terrorism. He’s the author of several books including, “Why I Left Jihad’, ‘God’s War on Terror’, and ‘The Case for Islamophobia’.
Walid noted that during the Benghazi incident, the Muslim Brotherhood had their own gunmen from the crowds creating havoc resulting in casualties. They attacked several police and train stations, ransacked government offices and Coptic churches but the major media isn’t reporting this. He feels this shows how the media and the U.S. government are uplifting the Muslim Brotherhood and therefore, the U.S. knows who the culprits are.
John McCain and Lindsey Graham visited Egypt last week in what appeared to be a continued effort to finding answers. The problem is, they are calling for the release of the Muslim Brotherhood prisoners. As Vic noted, how can they demand answers regarding Benghazi yet at the same time call for the release of the men who are potentially responsible?
In addition, news has come out that the passport of the late U.S. Ambassador Christopher Steven’s surfaced in the home of an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Deputy leader, Khairat El-Shater.
Perhaps the truth resides with the son of El-Shater who Walid alleges is saying that the reason the U.S. has to be nice to his father and to Egypt’s ousted leader, Mohammed Morsi, is because his father has documents in his possession, along with copies, that can bring down the Obama administration.
