Cairo Embassy: We Can Read Arabic

Posted on September 14, 2012 11:30 am

So, the Muslim Brotherhood has a Twitter account. Who knew, right? And, to save face and all of that, they sent a ‘lil tweet at the Cairo Embassy (who also has a Twitter account, apparently) saying they were happy that nobody got hurt in Cairo. That was their English tweet anyway…

Muslim Brotherhood: @khairatAlshater: We r relieved none of @USEmbassyCairo staff were harmed & hope US-Eg relations will sustain turbulence of Tuesday’s events

U.S. Embassy Cairo: @Ikhwanweb Thanks. By the way, have you checked out your own Arabic feeds? I hope you know we read those too.

Apparently, the Arabic version of the Muslim Brotherhood Twitter account was praising the attacks.

Do these people actually think that nobody in the United States, much less diplomatic agents in Arabic-speaking countries, can read and understand Arabic?

    We’re infidels remember. Not as useful as goats.

    Gee, why would they think that our present government officials were so stupid? …and yes, that’s sarcasm.

  3. Jimmy says:

    Well, apparently the Muslim Brotherhood likes us well enough to take our – excuse me – Obama’s money.

    Mongo like candy…Brotherhood like money.

    Point taken, SoB

    you know what nobody is picking up on…

    not only did the President not attend any press briefings for a whole week, but the President did not attend ANY PRESS BREIFINGS IN THE WEEK OF THE 9/11 ANNIVERSARY.

    you know…that one day where due to history, terrorist attacks are far more likely?

    This is not incompetence. This is deliberate.

  7. Keln says:

    Well, when one is trying to pretend that their presendency isn’t falling down around their big ears, one does not make themselves available to the press, or meet actual important people, or give serious interviews, or attend important briefings and meetings.

    The Arab world knows.

    Badass Romney is coming.

    Lan asteslam.

    Standard operating procedure: lie to the infidels in their language, tell the truth to the believers in your own.

    It kind of makes me wonder what “Dreams of My Father” or “Audacity of Hope” sound like in the original Klingon.

    Blarg, those were intelligence briefings that Il Douche avoided. The President is supposed to get an intelligence briefing every day, first thing. Of course, seeing as how both Ear Leader and Uncle Choo-Choo are both allergic to intelligence, I can see why Jugears would avoid an intelligence briefing like a vampire avoids garlic and sunlight.
    Both Billy Jeff and Barry are more enamored with the trappings of the office than actually doing the job. At least Comrade Bubba could fake it most of the time. According to the book Dereliction of Duty, he allegedly lost the Officer carrying the “football”, the launch codes, for about 15 minutes. As bad as that was, at least he didn’t lose the entire middle east like someone I could name.
