Egyptian protestors threw tomatoes, and taunted Hillary Clinton with chants about Monica Lewinsky during her visit to Alexandria Sunday.
Can you blame these people for their rage at the American administration? As soon as the revolution began, Hosni Mubarak was summarily thrown under the bus by Obama in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Since then, there has been chaos in the North African country. Eygpt's Coptic Christian population has either fled or is in hiding. Under Mubarak, they could worship freely, but now their churches are burned, and they live in fear for their lives. The Arab spring is really an Arab winter.
Hillary was subjected to the Monica chants when she visited the United States consulate Sunday in Alexandria for its reopening. The diplomatic office was shuttered about twenty years ago for budgetary reasons.
When Clinton arrived at the building, people bombarded her motorcade with shoes, tomatoes and a water bottle. Her vehicle was apparently not hit.
Granted this is a crude way to voice your displeasure, but did Clinton truly believe she would be greeted with rose petals? From the outset of the Egyptian uprising, the Obama administration was clearly on the side of the Islamists.
