    It's weird that Glenn Beck was universally labelled a "nut case" by the US News and the Obama Administration for predicting this would probably happen.

    Hillary's "Arab Spring" turned out to be the Muslim Brotherhood's best ally!

    Intelligent intelligence would have predicted this. The intelligence community missed the mark on WMD in Iraq and they miss the obvious turn of events in Egypt. Both were very costly errors. Who's in charge there?

    When hasn't there been trouble in Egypt?

    Giving Glenn Beck credit for predicting this is like giving me credit for predicting that Utah is going to hit 100 degrees in the next 2 months.

    Duh

    Maverick,
    Well I'm glad YOU could see it coming... because Obama and our politicians in Washington and our News Reporters in their ivory towers didn't see it coming (and mocked anybody you DID see it coming).

    At least you're smarter than the rest of the liberal establishment.

    The other key thing to understand is... this isn't just about Egypt. Some people predicted it would spread to the whole region (and it did).

    It spread to Tunisia, then Algeria, then Lebanon, Jordan, Oman, Mauritania, Yemen, Syria, Morocco, Sudan, Iraq, Libya, Kuwait, etc... and our State Dept didn't even see it coming.

    Our standing by and applauding these mobs in the streets and thinking it would just end there shows even a bone-head like Beck has better insight than our whole State Department and our President.

    Beck predicting what ended up happening may be like predicting the temp in Utah, but at least HE was able to see it and speak out. Our State Department can't say that! And our News reporters can't say that. They all MOCKED him for saying it!
