National Intelligence Chief James Clapper is still clueless

The Muslim Brotherhood: The Burden of Tradition

This time he can't figure out what the Muslim Brotherhood's agenda is.
BARACK Obama’s top US intelligence official has pledged to step up “observation” of the Muslim Brotherhood after admitting to ignorance of its agenda in Egypt.

James Clapper, the President’s director of national intelligence, conceded yesterday that he was unclear about the group’s attitude to Iran, Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel or arms-smuggling to Gaza.

Challenged by members of the US Senate intelligence committee yesterday, Mr Clapper said: “It is hard to, at this point, to point to a specific agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood as a group.”
Here are a couple of points from the Muslim Brotherhood's English site: (accent is mine)
– Insist to liberate the Islamic nation from the yoke of foreign rule, help safeguard the rights of Muslims everywhere and unite Muslims around the world.

–The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.
I guess National Intelligence Chief James Clapper doesn't get on the Internet much.

Hey All,

What do you expect?

We have an incompetent President who appoints incompetent people to positions of great importance to our well being as a Country.
