Egyptian revolutionaries snub Clinton

The youth leaders of the Egyptian revolution decided to snub Hillary Clinton on Tuesday by refusing to meet with her.
A coalition of six youth groups that emerged from Egypt’s revolution last month has refused to meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who arrived in Cairo earlier today, in protest of the United States’ strong support for former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak who was ousted by the uprising.

“There was an invitation for members of the coalition to meet Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but based on her negative position from the beginning of the revolution and the position of the US administration in the Middle East, we reject this invitation,” the January 25 Revolution Youth Coalition said in a statement posted on its Facebook page.

A spokesman for Clinton had no immediate response to the snub. Another State Department official, who would not speak for attribution, confirmed such a meeting had been slated for Tuesday and noted that she still plans to meet with members of civil society and transitional government officials during her visit, during which she will urge Egyptians to continue on the path towards democracy.

Egyptian revolutionaries don't want to meet with the Obama White House hacks, the Saudi counter-revolutionaries won't pick up the phone for Mr. Throw Them Under the Bus, Syria mocks the United States, and Iran spits on it. Bibi, not wanting to anger the appeaser bobs and weaves and plays for time, desperately attempting to triangulate between his home constituencies and an out-of-touch, timorously belligerent, autocratic poseur.

No good deed goes unpunished.
