The Betrayal Papers Part IV: Obama, Muslim Brotherhood Constructed Arab Spring, Genocidal ISIS, and America’s Self-Destruction
Part I of the Betrayal Papers surveyed the history and context of the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of the United States government. Part II, linked the Muslim Brotherhood’s associations with several Obama officials and non-profit “terrorist-front” organizations operating on American soil. Part III traced the Muslim Brotherhood’s integral direction of U.S. domestic policies and role in numerous Obama administration scandals.
Part IV examines the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence over Obama administration foreign policy, using the U.S. military to perpetrate a global Islamic Caliphate and genocidal ISIS, and systematically dismantle age-old American alliances.

The Arab Spring
When writing about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress, Saudi Al-Jazirah columnist Dr. Ahmad al-Faraj described Obama as “one of the worst U.S. presidents.” He also mentioned, “Since Obama is the godfather of the prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam…”
Pointing to Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, al-Faraj exposed what most in the Arab world already knew: Obama was working with and arming Muslim Brotherhood “revolutionaries” throughout Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and eventually Syria. al-Faraj was not alone in his assessment.
In fact, one need only recall Clinton’s justification for “regime changes” in North Africa and the Middle East after Tunisia’s Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was deposed and Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak was deposed and imprisoned. Clinton reasoned, “It was the process that matters, not the ideologies of those taking part… Along the way we trained and gave guidance to the Muslim Brotherhood and other fundamentalist candidates in the electioneering process.”
Part of the training to which Clinton referred was part of an overall objective best explained in the published work of some Obama administration staff members with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. In 2008, Rashad Hussain, Obama’s Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation co-authored a Brookings Institution paper, Reformulating the Battle of Ideas: Understanding the Role of Islam in Counterterrorism Policy. In it Hussain writes that Islam is the “strongest ally” in the “global effort to end terrorism.” He also asserts that the American government should utilize Islamic scholars and Islamic “policymaking” to reject “terrorism,” and “reject the use of language that provides a religious legitimization of terrorism such as ‘Islamic terrorism’ and ‘Islamic extremist.’”
This year Hussain was tapped to spearhead a State Department Twitter campaign to fight ISIS as director of the State Department’s Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications. (One wonders why Obama would not simply order Twitter to close user accounts that tweet tens of thousands of messages daily supporting or recruiting for ISIS). With this appointment, Hussain’s connection to the Muslim Brotherhood’s networkin America has become more acknowledged.
Also in 2008, Dalia Mogahed, a former member of Obama’s Advisory Council of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, co-authored a report, ”Changing Course, A New Direction for U.S. Relations with the Muslim World,” for the Leadership Group on U.S.-Muslim Engagement. She along with other group members (Secretary of State Madeline Albright, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf (of World Trade Center Mosque notoriety) and Muslim Public Affairs Council’s Ahmed Younis) sought to foster “engagement and cooperation” with “political Islam” and specifically, with the Muslim Brotherhood. They wrote:
The U.S. must also consider when and how to talk with political movements that have substantial public support and have renounced violence, but are outlawed or restricted by authoritarian governments allied to the U.S. The Muslim Brotherhood parties in Egypt and Jordan are arguably in this category. In general, the Leadership Group supports engagement with groups that have clearly demonstrated a commitment to nonviolent participation in politics.”
Then in June 2009 Obama addressed Muslims worldwide from Cairo’s Al-Azhar University, with prominent Muslim Brotherhood members sitting in the front row. Obama vowed:
[The] partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
The Obama Administration’s transformative avocation that American foreign policy embrace political Islam and redefine “terror” set the stage for creating the Arab Spring.
The Arab Spring: A cursory overview of Obama and Muslim Brotherhood Objectives
In December 2010 a Tunisian man burned himself to death in protest against a secular policewoman, sparking rebellions throughout the Middle East. Within months, Ben Ali’s government fell and in 2011 Tunisians elected the Muslim Brotherhood’s Ennahda Islamist Party with a plurality vote of 41.47 percent. However, by October 2014 the voters ousted the Ennahda Islamist Party leaders, electing the secular Nidaa Tounes alliance into power.
Since 2010, Tunisia’s economic stability remains fragile and its political climate remains “hospitable to Islamic State recruiting while ISIS kills its tourists. Open Doors USA ranks Tunisia #36 out of the top 50 countries where Christians are most persecuted.
Despite repeated U.S. military warnings and recommendations to keep Muammar Qadhafi in power, Obama and former Secretary Clinton overthrew Qadhafi’s regime, leaving a power vacuum that al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood filled. Qadhafi’s weapons were first smuggled to Syrian rebels later to factions now part of ISIS, and potentially reached even Boko Haram.
The mystery surrounding Benghazi can be largely dispelled in a few short paragraphs.
Second, according to CNN’s Jake Tapper dozens of CIA operatives were allegedly on the ground during the attack and the Obama administration went to “great lengths” to obscure their activities. Many speculate Ambassador Stevens was a CIA asset in the State Department.
Third, only hours before the attack on September 11, 2012, Stevens met with a Turkish ambassador at the compound. Turkey was a transshipment point for many Libyan weapons that were later smuggled to jihadists worldwide.
Fourth, Morsi’s Egyptian government (Muslim Brotherhood controlled) was also involved with the compound’s attack. In fact, some of the terrorists were recorded on video pleading, “Don’t shoot! Dr. Morsi sent us!”
These facts beg the question: If Ambassador Stevens was actually overseeing a gun running operation to Islamic/jihadist/Muslim Brotherhood militias, why then would the same people kill him, as the American public were repeatedly told?
One theoretical answer endorsed by retired Four Star Admiral James Lyons suggests that Ambassador Stevens was to be traded for the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, a man who had embodied Islamic terrorism to the world for generations and who Morsi wanted released from prison.
However this plan went spectacularly wrong, resulting in a botched cover-up that succeeded primarily because of the news industry’s negligence to investigate the facts.
In an alarming breach of protocol and sworn duty, Obama’s Special Advisor Valerie Jarrett ordered the U.S. military to “stand down,” effectively ordering American citizens be left to fend for themselves against a well-armed jihadist militia.
Next came the now infamous Susan Rice national media blitz throughout which she delivered identical talking points to numerous news outlets blaming the Benghazi attack on an obscure and poorly produced movie. The talking points she and others later recited were detailed in an email Ben Rhodes, Obama’s 2009 Cairo speechwriter, sent to a list of people including a George Washington University MSA member copied on the email.
Unsurprisingly George Soros also was linked to Benghazi. The Obama-appointed lead investigator for the attack was Ambassador Thomas Pickering who had ties to CAIR a well-known Muslim Brotherhood organization in the United States. At the time of the investigation Pickering was Soros’s International Crisis Group co-chair and still remains a trustee.
Since the Arab Spring, political unrest, violence, and militia rule continue to plague Libya. Its economic infrastructure has nearly deteriorated and rule of law remains non-existent. According to Open Doors USA, Libya is ranked #13 out of the top 50 countries where Christians are most persecuted.
Much has been written about Obama’s decision to force Hosni Mubarak’s resignation and the subsequent election of Mohamed Morsi as Egypt’s next president. However, it’s important to reinforce several key and lesser-known points.
- Mubarak was the lynchpin holding together regional stability as the president of the most populous Arab country. He maintained not only peace but also a strong relationship with Israel and the United States.
- Allegedly, Obama’s friends and domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn played a significant role in fomenting the protests that led to Mubarak’s resignation.
- Mohamed Morsi likely joined the Muslim Brotherhood through the Muslim Students Association in America while studying at the University of Southern California.
- Egypt’s newspaper, El-Mogaz News, reported that Morsi’s wife was not only a long-time friend of former Secretary Hillary Clinton but she “threatened to expose the special relationship between her husband and Hillary Clinton…”
- After Morsi rose to power and began implementing sharia law, Obama pledged to give $8 billion to Egypt in exchange for land in the Sinai (for Palestinians/Hamas). However, once Morsi was removed, following a brief, murderous, and highly destructive reign of power, Obama immediatelywithheld Egyptian military aid.
On the fourth anniversary of the Arab Spring, protests erupted in Cairo resulting in numerous deaths. Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, formerly Mubarak’s military intelligence chief, has successfully neutralized the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence in nearly every area of Egypt with the exception of the Islamist insurgency along the Sinai Peninsula/Israeli border.
Since 2011 Egypt’s economic instability has worsened. The Heritage Foundation reports that Egypt’s “rule of law is ineffective and arbitrary,” “judicial procedures are long and costly” and despite having received tens of millions of dollars in aid, its government still requested bailouts from the IMF and other Arab countries.
Egypt remains one of the ten most dangerous countries to be a woman. According to a New Economy Report, since 2011, gender based violence and harassment of women and girls has substantially increased. Open Doors USA ranks Egypt #23 out of the top 50 countries where Christians are most persecuted.
SYRIA & ISIS – A Disastrous War of Genocide
Former Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and his father Hafez consistently and strongly opposed the Muslim Brotherhood. One of their archenemies was Osama bin Laden’s lieutenant, Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, aka Abu Musab al-Suri, who was committed to overthrowing the Assads and implementing sharia law (he was also the Madrid train bombing mastermind).
In addition to being friends with the Clintons, the Assads enjoyed extended notoriety with American elitists, recently hobnobbingwith Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry and his wife. Yet this came to an end when Obama declared to the world that it was “time for Assad to step aside.”
In August 2011, Obama announced to the world that al-Assad should “step aside” so that “democratic” and “moderate” rebels could effect political change in Syria. The CIA cobbled together the Sunni-backed Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council, comprised of brutal, radical, anti-democratic, Turkish Islamist mercenaries.
By January 2012, the CIA was shipping arms and providing “communications assistance” to them. In March 2012, Obama refused to launch air strikes despite his drawing a “red line” claim, choosing instead to send $1.5 billion to the Muslim Brotherhood. American Special Forces helped arm and train the rebels, and joining America, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the U.K. helped finance overthrowing Assad.
Obama’s directive to train, arm, and fund these rebels helped create what is now known as ISIS. ISIS continues to ravage through Syria, Jordan, and Iraq, burning people alive, beheading, torturing, and selling children as sex slaves using U.S. military equipment including trucks, Humvees, rockets, artillery pieces and Stinger missiles.
ISIS posts pictures and video online of its persecution of Christians, intentional destruction of ancient Christian communities, and its trademark witness to its path of destruction: Christian children’s heads posted on stakes.
ISIS also actively implements Islamic Jahiliyyah, the practice of erasing all traces of civilization that existed before Mohammed circa 610 AD. Similar to the Taliban destroying the Afghan Buddhas, ISIS is deliberately destroying ancient pre-Islamic cultural icons and historical artifacts. As Iraqi lawmaker Hakim al-Zamili explains, ISIS “considers culture, civilization and science as their fierce enemies.”
Despite ISIS’s public displays of the large-scale, unspeakable crimes against humanity, Obama refuses to name ISIS evil, refuses to acknowledge the genocide of Christians by Islamists, claiming, “ISIS is not Islam.”
In response to public opinion, Obama and advisor Valerie Jarret ordered airstrikes (ineffective “pin-pricks”) against ISIS. Yet, to date, nearly 4 million Syrians fled, now living as refugees in neighboring countries. Civil war has decimated Syria’s economy. The rule of law is non-existent; its land is ravaged by extrajudicial killings, kidnappings, and torture. The Syrian pound has become worthless, as inflation has grown. Open Doors USA ranks Syria #4 out of the top 50 countries where Christians are most persecuted.
Non-coincidentally, the same pattern followed in Nigeria during the same time period.
The Obama administration enabled the “junior league” Muslim Brotherhood rebels that became Boko Haram—by downplaying them.
As Andrew McCarthy remarked, “Instead, ignoring what Boko Haram pronounces its goals to be, the Obama administration portrayed it as a diffuse organization with no clear agenda that was ascendant due to the policies of the Nigerian government (which is under Christian leadership).”
Following Nigerian government air strikes against Boko Haram, John Kerry urged restraint against fighting Boko Haram,warning Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan “to respect human rights and not harm civilians.”
Michelle Obama’s tragically hypocritical twitter campaign, #BringBackOurGirls, did not bring back the thousands of girls Boko Haram has and continues to kidnap and sell in the sex trade. Nor did any Obama “policy” halt Boko Haram’s army, which isreportedly stronger than Nigeria’s Army. It is nearly impossible for Christians or non-Muslims to live in any of Nigeria’s 12 northern Sharia states, as the northeastern region has declared caliphate rule.
Despite billions spent and incalculable loss of life and civilization, ISIS remains relentless in its pursuit to establish a global caliphate. Many agree with Virginia State Senator Richard Black’s recent assessment that, “once Damascus falls, Europe won’t be far behind.” Indeed, many in the intelligence community have already acknowledged that Italy will be ISIS’s first European target.
The Arab Spring’s Financial and Diplomatic Costs to America
According to the Department of Defense,it costs America $8.5 million every day to fight ISIS.
Estimates suggest additional and significantly debilitating expenses are needed—in the range of $15-20 billion annually—in addition to the debt Americans already amassed to fund, train, and arm ISIS.
Yet $20 billion appears not to be enough for Senator Chris Coons (D-DE), who recently proposed implementing a “temporary war surtax”on Americans to supplement the costs to fight ISIS. These costs, of course, exclude those associated with Obama’s recent additional request to Congress to approve the use U.S. military force— going to war—against ISIS.
Even more troubling, is these tax and debt estimates exclude any funds to protect Americans from ISIS groups that already exist on American soil.
According to the FBI, ISIS is operational in all 50 states, as are their training camps, in addition to Jamaat al-Fuqra jihad training camps. In addition to these enemies already living on American soil, Obama plans to bring millions of Syrian refugees to America, which many believe is a backdoor strategy to bring in even more jihadists. In this way, the Arab Spring evidences one intentional consequence of Obama’s open border policy to destroy America from within.
Losses in Afghanistan and GITMO
Diplomatically, within a few short years Obama successfully reversed every gain American troops achieved in Afghanistan and Iraq. A national intelligence estimate in December 2013 predicted that all progress made in Afghanistan would be lost once a military drawdown began.
True to form, seven months after the release of the December 2013 report Obama “exchanged” one American deserter, Bowe Bergdahl, for five high ranking Taliban commanders and GITMO detainees. Obama not only bypassed Congress, but also allegedly paid approximately $5 million for this exchange to the Haqqani Network, a terrorist group operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The Taliban has nearly regained all ground it had previously lost, and with this human rights have vanished in Afghanistan. Not one church remains in its land and in the last year three expat Christians were killed simply because they were Christians. With the rise of the Taliban, Afghanistan’s 2013 and 2014 poppy crop yields exploded, fueling its extensive and lucrative opium trade.
The destruction of Afghanistan assuredly paralleled Iraq’s near total destruction. Political instability, ongoing sectarian and regional violence, targeted genocide of Kurds and Christians, and endemic corruption has reversed every reconstructive plan that was implemented over one decade prior.
The Arab Spring’s catastrophic fallout benefits Iran the most. Neighboring countries exist in implosive chaos while it patiently waits to receive cash payments from the United States, totaling $11.9 Billion by June 2015.
Obama’s orchestrated “nuclear disarmament negotiations,” trading $12 billion in cash to Iran in return for Iran publicly “agreeing to negotiate”— is nothing short of treason.
And Congress appears powerless to stop it—because Congress authorized such funding in December 2014.
The Constitution defines treason against the United States as 1) “consist[ing] only in levying war against them,” or 2) “in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”
Through the Arab Spring, Obama sacrificed American, Afghan, Egyptian, Iraqi, Jordanian, and Syrian blood, and many others, to support Muslim Brotherhood objectives.
Even the international community recognizes that Obama’s deal with Iran threatens global security. Amir Taheri, an Iranian expert and Asharq Al-Awsat veteran columnist rightly asserts,
The deal [with Iran] signals to all nations that building nuclear arms is OK, even for those – like Iran – that promised not to do so by signing the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty…. [It] is a signal to other developing nations to build nuclear programs of their own…. The deal is bad for regional and world peace and for the Iranian people…. It further discredits the word of America’s presidents. Four Presidents, including Obama, are on record pledging not to allow Iran to build a nuclear arsenal.”
Yet, the Arab Spring’s disastrous fallout and Obama’s persistence to partner with Iran has shifted America’s previously strong alliances. Egypt is forming a closer relationship with Putin’s Russia, as is Saudi Arabia.
India, which had moved closer to the United States under George W. Bush, has also turned towards Russia. France, with the rise of its National Front Party, is likely to do the same. And Israel is openly courting new strategic alliances.
It remains uncertain, if there has ever been a time in American history when our national commitment to morality, decency, and humanity has faced such precarious and imminent danger as it does today.
However, many others assert Obama’s plan to destroy America from within was intentionally planned before he was ever elected to office. Obama was always a Muslim who understood, believed in, and supported political Islam. Over time, this reality became apparent, through his claim to “stand with [Muslims] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” and his declaration to the United Nations that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Obama’s support for political Islam is evident. He:
- Uses “taqiyya” by asserting that ISIS is not “Islamic” and is not proclaiming their intent to create a global caliphate when they destroy Christian homes, churches, and civilizations and mount their Islamic State black banners;
- Falsely blames Christianity for the Crusades;
- Refuses to acknowledge that genocide is being committed against Christians; ISIS is solely targeting, beheading, andslaughtering Christians;
- Refuses to acknowledge that “Muslim” terrorists are both Muslims and as terrorists when speaking at a summit specifically addressing “violent extremism;”
- Refuses to help Iraqi Christians, Jordan, and Egypt in defense against ISIS.
The only possible explanation for Obama committing treason, fostering genocide, and destroying previous domestic and foreign policy achievements is the influence the Muslim Brotherhood has had on his life—and his commitment to its cause.
The United States is now faced with an unprecedented and completely transformed geopolitical crises on every level possible. If the majority of Americans understood the gravity of the situation, they would demand, at a minimum, that Obama, many administrative officials, and members of Congress be tried for treason for intentionally aiding America’s enemies and intentionally negligent in its duty to protect American citizens from threats both foreign and domestic.
The Betrayal Papers provide only a cursory overview, a narrow glimpse into the preponderance of open sourced and published information. It is likely that classified information would present a much more frightening reality.
