Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton noted Tuesday that the Obama administration erred in supporting the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, saying, “He’s no Jeffersonian democrat but he was an ally of the United States who supported the Camp David Accord with Israel,”
Bolton appeared on “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday to offer some analysis of demonstrations taking place in Egypt, especially in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, where upwards of one million Egyptians have gathered to show their displeasure with the Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Morsi regime, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Co-anchor Bill Hemmer asked Bolton the meaning behind President Obama’s Monday night phone call to Morsi.
“Well who knows what the president means?” Bolton said. “But what I think is motivating the protestors in part is when Morsi took over about a year ago the Egyptian economy was in the tank and he has not only not made it better, he made it worse,” he observed.
“And that obviously has people understandably upset. But for a particular reason as well. Because they see the Muslim Brotherhood pursuing its Islamist Sharia law agenda as if the economy were only a side issue. I think that really burns people and that explains, I think the size and to some extent the emotion behind these protests.”
If asked, Bolton could very well have said much the same of President Obama, who ignores the U.S. economy in favor of climate change, gun control and amnesty for immigrants here illegally.
