The Worldnetdaily and many other right wing “news” outlets are pushing this ridiculous rumor that Egypt has charged President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for aiding the Muslim Brotherhood, which the current Egyptian government considers a terrorist group. As usual, this is completely false.
A WorldNetDaily report, written by none other than birther investigator Jerome Corsi, about how the Egyptian government is prosecuting President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for aiding terrorism has started to be picked up by other right-wing outlets eager to publicize the huge news.
None seem to have noticed that Corsi’s claim is not only unfounded, but is rooted an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that the Zionists who “control” America and Israel put the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Egypt in order to divide and bring turmoil to the Islamic world.
Of course, as Snopes points out, the report of the terrorist charges are a complete fabrication that seems to have been based on a misreading of a single post on an Egyptian blog. Not to mention that it would be odd for Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to meet with Obama and Clinton while also accusing them of terrorism.
The gullibility of some people is amazing. How could anyone really believe that this would be true, especially given the close ties between our government and the Egyptians? It’s incredible, really.
