House Majority Leader Meets With Muslim Brotherhood

The media is so focused on Nancy Pelosi's shameful misconduct, one can easily forget that there is plenty of disgrace to go around.

While Pelosi was busily usurping the authority of the President and the State Department, apparently Maryland Congressman, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, was getting chummy with the grandpappy of all terrorist groups, The Muslim Brotherhood.

From The Associated Press:

A top U.S. Democratic congressman met a leader of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's most powerful rival, the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, U.S. officials and the Islamist group said Saturday.

Visiting House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer met with the head of the Muslim Brotherhood's parliamentary bloc, Mohammed Saad el-Katatni, twice on Thursday once at parliament and then at the home of the U.S. ambassador to Egypt, Brotherhood spokesman Hamdi Hassan said.

U.S. Embassy spokesman John Berry would only confirm that Hoyer, who represents Maryland, met with el-Katatni at U.S. Ambassador Francis Ricciardone's home at a reception with other politicians and parliament members.

The article went on to point out that, while Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has refused to meet with the Muslim Brotherhood, U.S. government policy does not bar meetings with the Brotherhood's members of parliament.
So while no laws were broken, certainly bad judgment was shown by the Dhimmicrats, once again.
