Does the son of jailed Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat Al-Shater have evidence that could put Barack Obama in prison? One must only look at the reaction of the Obama Administration during this transition to suspect that this could be true. No longer is the situation in Egypt about the will of the people. It more so seems about rescuing the Muslim Brotherhood at any cost.
Fresh off the visit of McCain and Graham, WND's Jerome Corsi broke a huge story on Tuesday evening:
The son of a jailed Muslim Brotherhood leader in Egypt is claiming his father has evidence that will land President Obama in prison.
The claim came as the Obama administration, with the assistance of Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and the open involvement of the No. 2 man at the U.S. State Department, made a concerted effort to see Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Egypt released.
In an interview with the News Agency Anatolia in Turkey, Saad Al-Shater, the son of imprisoned Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat Al-Shater, said his father "had in his hand" evidence that will put Obama in prison.
In a thinly veiled threat, Saad Al-Shater said a U.S. delegation was sent to Cairo by Obama to press for the release of the imprisoned Muslim Brotherhood leaders, including his father to prevent the release of explosive information.
Arabic-speaking former PLO member Walid Shoebat has translated the report by the Turkish News Agency Anatolia as follows:
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 resputation 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 Mohamed Morsi.
Writing in his blog, Shoebat noted that six different Arabic sources confirmed the interview with Saad Al-Shater and the report of Al-Shater's claims.
Shoebat said the interview with Saad Al-Shater was Aug. 7, making it likely the reference to the "senior U.S. delegation currently visiting Egypt" was about the trip by McCain, Graham and U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns.
Time will tell if the threat is credible. Anything at this point is certainly conjecture but let's revisit some of the things we know and have been reporting.
The story line we have been building has been that the death of four Americans in Benghazi had nothing to do with gun running. That is why Ambassador Chris Stevens was sent there but not why he was killed.
The evidence suggests that Stevens was part of a botched abduction and prisoner exchange for The Blind Sheik. If that is true and the deal was made between Morsi and Obama, then it would certainly tend to fit with this man's claims. Morsi certainly would be less likely to roll over on Obama and incriminate himself, but another Muslim Brotherhood official may not have as much to lose as Morsi.
We have a good amount of evidence that the prisoner exchange was a probable scenario. If you would like to review it, you can click here.
