Aren't you glad we got rid of Mubarak? Morsy cozing up to Iran
The Times of London reports that in a move planned to 'send a message' to the United States, Iranian spy chief Qassem Suleimani held two days of talks with Mohammed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood
Egypt’s Islamist Government has enlisted covert help from Iran to strengthen
its grip on power, dealing another blow to Cairo’s fragile relationship with
Qassem Suleimani, Iran’s spy chief, visited the Egyptian capital just after
Christmas for two days of talks with senior officials close to President
Mohamed Morsi, The Times has learnt.
Mr Suleimani, who oversees Iran’s proxy militias across the region, including
Hezbollah and Hamas, travelled at the invitation of Mr Morsi’s Government
and his powerful backers in the Muslim Brotherhood.
I'm sure this won't
be on the agenda when Morsy visits Washington.... What could go wrong?
