Could a high ranking, imprisoned Muslim Brotherhood official in Egypt have information that could put Barack Obama in prison? That’s certainly what he’s claiming,
This is certainly interesting at any rate. Khairat Al-Shater is at the top of the Muslim Brotherhood pyramid. He was supposed to be the original Muslim Brotherhood president…
We caution that the following be taken with a grain of salt but considering who said it, we thought it newsworthy too. Here is a direct translation of the key points, followed by some analysis:
In an interview with the Anatolia News Agency, Saad Al-Shater, the son of a Muslim Brotherhood leader, the detained Khairat Al-Shater, said that his father had in his hand evidence that will land the head of United States of America, president Obama, in prison.
He stressed that the senior U.S. delegation currently visiting Egypt, knows full well that the fate, future, interests and reputation of their country is in the hands of his father, and they know that he owns the information, documents and recordings that incriminate and would condemn their country.
Such documents, he says, were placed in the hands of people who were entrusted inside and outside Egypt, and that the release of his father is the only way for them to prevent a great catastrophe. He stated that a warning was sent threatening to show how the U.S. administration was directly connected. The evidence was sent through intermediaries which caused them to change their attitude and corrected their position and that they have taken serious steps to prove good faith.
Saad also said that his father’s safety is more important to the Americans than is the safety of Mohammed Mursi.
Could there be anything to this?
Barack Obama isn’t particularly smart, he doesn’t seem to have many qualms about breaking the law, and he definitely has a soft spot for the rabidly anti-American Muslim Brotherhood — so, yes, there could conceivably be something to this.
On the other hand, there is a huge love of conspiracy theories in the Middle East and who knows what kind of game Al-Shater may be playing in an effort to try to get out of prison? So, could this be a nothing burger? Absolutely. Guess we’ll have to stay tuned to see how this story develops, if it develops, or if Al-Shater gets a sudden cases of the “deads.”
