THIS MUST BE MORE OF THAT “SMART DIPLOMACY” WE WERE PROMISED: Obama Pushed Early Elections In Egypt Knowing That It Would Likely Lead to Islamist Victory.

Of course, maybe the theory is that — as you know if you’ve been reading Spengler — things are likely to get a lot worse in Egypt very soon, so we might as well let the Islamists in and leave them holding the bag. That really would be smart diplomacy, which is why I kinda doubt it’s what we’re about. But I’d love to be wrong.
