Egyptian Security Forces Arrest Top Muslim Brotherhood Official Who Is Also Top Clinton Foundation Official
Guest Post by Mara Zebest
Egyptian Security forces have been cracking down on the Muslim Brotherhood organization and recently arrested a top Muslim Brotherhood official named Gehad el-Haddad (loyal to ousted Morsi whom Democrats like Obama helped put into power). Gosh, what a coincidence that Gehad el-Haddad was also a top official of the William J. Clinton Foundation.
The FreeBeacon reports the following:
A senior Muslim Brotherhood official who, until recently, had been employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo on Tuesday and charged with inciting violence.
Gehad el-Haddad served as one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s top communications officials until Egyptian security forces seized him as part of a wider crackdown on officials loyal to ousted former President Mohamed Morsi.
Before emerging as a top Brotherhood official and adviser to Morsi, el-Haddad served for five years as a top official at the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit group founded by former President Bill Clinton.
El-Haddad gained a reputation for pushing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt.
He was raised in a family of prominent Brotherhood supporters and became the public face of the Islamist organization soon after leaving his post at the Clinton Foundation.
However, much of his official work with the Brotherhood took place while he was still claiming to be employed by the Clinton Foundation.
