A great article by Christian Caryl appeared on the FP website today and I just had to reply. The jury is out on the unrest in muslim countries vis-a-vis its sponsors, but the more I read about it the more I am convinced that it is a western intelligence operation. The Egyptian government’s heavy handed dealing with NGO’s strongly bolsters that suspicion. My reply to that article is below:
Thanks for the informative article.
It isn’t clear to me whether or not this author is truly ignorant of the story behind the story or is being disingenuous. In fact, it is this kind of reporting that makes the U.S. propaganda machine so amazingly sophisticated and clever.
Nowhere is it mentioned that U.S. and other western intelligence agencies use and abuse NGOs to such an extreme that it should be obvious why the Egyptian ruling military cabal has cracked down on them: They don’t want to get the same treatment that the last government got.
If this is not self evident someone please tell me to be quiet.
