    CAIRO Sen. John Kerry has met in Cairo with members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group that's set to dominate the new parliament.

    In a statement, the Muslim Brotherhood says three of its top officials attended the meeting with the Massachusetts Democrat, who was accompanied by U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson.

    Brotherhood officials vowed to respect civil rights and international treaties that have been signed in the past. That assurance could be an attempt to calm fears that the group may try to re-examine Egypt's peace treaty with Israel.

    The group says Kerry told the Brotherhood's members that he's not surprised by their success in parliamentary elections.

    The elections were the first since President Hosni Mubarak was ousted.

    Kerry, who is also chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was among the first U.S. politicians to call on Mubarak to step down earlier this year.

    Back when he was on active duty, but had left Vietnam, Kerry met, illegally, with the North Vietnamese delegation to the Paris Peace Talks, in the company of a group of antiwar activists. I guess that whenever a radically anti-American, anti-western organization is working to overthrow a US ally, we can count on John Kerry to show up and support them.

    Yeah, we should just pretend Egypt doesn't exist.

    I'm not happy that the Muslim Brotherhood are running things in Eygpt. I do think that perhaps there were legitimate reasons to meet up with them. They're claiming they'll respect the civil rights of those in Egypt. It's important to see if they'll go through with that.

    Don't be ridiculous, Lanie, diplomats aren't supposed to practice diplomacy, they are supposed to stamp their feet, close their eyes, and yell "I can't see you!"

    Well at least he's consistent in his desire to befriend our enemies.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    This is just a jumping off point for some Kerry bashing. That's all.

    Don't be silly. I don't need a jumping off point.:D

    I don't really care who runs Egypt. And if John Kerry cares, let him.

    Being the Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, I imagine if he doesn't care, he should at least fake it.
