Clinton urges smooth Egypt transition

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met Sunday with the head of Egypt's military leadership, a day after she urged the country's first democratically elected president to "assert the full authority" of his office.

Clinton's meeting with Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, held out of the view of reporters, came amid a political tug of war between President Mohamed Morsy and the military council that Tantawi heads.

Elise Labott assesses Hillary Clinton's diplomatic mission to Egypt following the secretary of state's meeting with the military.

    Hillary "The Corpse" Clinton, fresh from the killing fields of Syria must have felt right at home sitting next to another mass-murderer the draculian manifestation Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi; a decorated pimp extrodinaire!I, am sure they showed each other their Skull-N-Crossbone tattoo ink jobs, while complimenting each others body-count stats on regime-change techniques.Hillary's precence must always trigger the opening of the windows and turning up the air-conditioner to clear the room of the stinch of fresh blood and corpse stinch.What beacons of Democracy these two psychopaths make during a era of western Middle East revolutionary uprisings!

    A vote should soon be taken if now is the right time for Israel’s Jews to leave their dangerous neighborhoods and Emigrate to California. In the 50s many NYC Jews left their crime ridden ghettos, sold their homes and became residents of sunny California. But those who are deeply rooted in Israel will not leave without a profitable garage sale. Good fortune is knocking; Saudi princes have offered 7.5 trillion Shekels for the entire Holy Land including Jerusalem. It is wise to accept the Saudi buy out and hop aboard the Exodus Flotilla. The citizens of California would welcome the Jewish arrivals; their Shekels will jumpstart an ailing California economy.
