the Muslim Brotherhood

In testimony before a Congressional committee: Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said: "The term 'Muslim Brotherhood' ... is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam."

Charles Krauthammer observed, “It is an odd name for a secular organization.”

The administration later corrected Clapper’s remark.

Today’s quote, February 12
One man, one vote, one time. Edward Djerejian
The tyrant’s vision of democracy.

I hope the Egyptians have more than one election.
