Obama to meet Muslim Brotherhood at White House

President Obama has apparently not given up on restoring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt. Toward that end, he will be meeting with them at the White House later this month (Hat Tip: MFS - The Other News).
Obama would reportedly meet with Brotherhood officials to "hear their opinion" on developments in Egypt, in the presence of Turkish diplomats.
Egypt Independent heard from sources inside the Muslim Brotherhood that Islamist-linked billionaire Hassen Malek requested a meeting through Obama's office manager.
The meeting with Turkish officials is expected to take place this month.
Turkish diplomats are expected to push for Mohamed Morsy's reinstatement as Egyptian president, sources said, if not that the Muslim Brotherhood would be assured of political survival following a month-long violent stand-off with the armed forces in the wake of Morsy's overthrow.
The U.S. has repeatedly supported the Muslim Brotherhood's ascendancy in Egypt, researcher Mohamed Hasanein Heikahl said.
Obama's 'office manager'? Valerie Jarrett? 

In any event, Obama's biggest problem with reinstating the Muslim Brotherhood is that Congress is not playing along (except for RINO McCain). I doubt that will change.
