Months before the Benghazi attack in 2012, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the election of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood leader a “milestone” for Egyptian democracy and discretely offered covert police and security help.

In a nine-page document once-labeled “Secret,” there is a list of talking points for Clinton’s meeting with the newly-elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on July 14, 2012.

The talking points show major support for Morsi’s election, “We stand behind Egypt’s transition to democracy,” adding that the way to maintain a strong Egypt is “through a successful transition to democracy.”

The first key objective of the meeting was for Clinton to “offer our congratulations to Morsi and to the Egyptian people for this milestone in Egypt’s transition to democracy.”  Clinton was supposed to off Morsi American technical expertise and assistance from the United States government and the private sector to support his economic and social programs.

According to Clinton’s talking points, she was also supposed to include an offer of secret assistance to help Morsi “upgrade and reorient Egypt’s police force toward serving the needs of a democratic people.” This offer included sending a team of police and security experts from the United States to Egypt as part of a “framework of cooperation” that would be carried out “quite discretely.”

The fund was going to be launched with $60 million. The plans included Congress adding $300 million to the fund over a five-year time span.

That fund was created in September 2012.

The meeting between Morsi and Clinton took place two months before the Benghazi terror attacks in September 2012.

A letter written to Morsi by Deputy Secretary of State Thomas R. Nides on Sept. 24, 2012 revealed that Nides was seeking collaboration with Morsi on Syria and Iran.

In the letter, Nides wrote:

“It was an honor to meet you in Cairo… We Share the goal of growing our markets and increasing trade, as well as a desire for a stable, secure and peaceful region. As I said when we met, the United States also remains committed to helping Egypt address regional issues, including Syria and Iran.”

These documents prove that under Clinton, the State Department had “little understanding of the Islamist threat posed by the Muslim Brotherhood and its branches.” Or they just didn’t care.

Andrew C. McCarthy, the former assistant U.S. attorney in New York who has prosecuted Islamist terror cases, says “the defining mission of the Muslim Brotherhood is the implementation of sharia.”

Free Beacon reports:

“Retired Army Lt. Col. Joseph Myers, a former DIA official and specialist on terrorism, said the documents show the endorsement and support of the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt was “a fools errand and shows a disastrous strategic naivety.”

“The whole policy initiative to support a Muslim Brotherhood government anywhere is another example of a total policy failure of Secretary Clinton,” Myers said.

“But it also raises deeper questions of who in our government is advising and influencing such reckless and dangerous policies that show no fundamental comprehension of the threat we face from radical Islamic jihad,” he added. “Or worse these advisers precisely understand what they are doing to U.S. policy and Secretary Clinton could not.” “

    When will America acknowledge that Obama and Hillary have been doing the bidding of those in the Middle East that support ISIS for the past eight years?
