The Obama administration's betrayal and abandonment of Hosni Mubarak--an important, peace-preserving American ally--unleashed a nightmare in Egypt. Long-suppressed Islamists, including individuals linked to the assassination of Egypt's peacemaking president, Anwar Sadat, came to power and established terrorist bases in the Sinai peninsula.
Now, Mubarak could soon be freed. The news coincides with reports that Islamist terrorists in Sinai ambushed and killed 25 Egyptian police officers.
Obama's complicity in the ouster of Mubarak recalls Jimmy Carter's catastrophic complicity in the ouster of Iran's Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Fortunately for the Egyptian people, its military, unlike the Iranian military, intervened to end the Islamist terrorist nightmare.
