Who is fooling whom when they claim that the U.S. is not supporting democracy in Egypt? The fact is that the Muslim Brotherhood stole the election and President Mohamed Morsi is their puppet.

The Brotherhood believes in the application of Shariah law. How is that democratic? There is no separation of church and state. How is that democratic?

Let's call a spade a spade: There was not a democracy in Egypt, and President Obama was wise to recognize that.
