(Newser) – As protests rage in Egypt, some fringe right-wingers are at the ready with an Obama link: they’re saying the president has secret ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, TPM reports. Among the assertions:

  • Pundit Frank Gaffney told Sean Hannity last night that “the Obama administration's policies are being viewed through and actually articulated and implemented through influence operations that the Muslim Brotherhood itself is running in our own country.”

  • Gaffney later called Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and other top officials “questionable people who are sympathetic to the program of the stealth jihadists." See video at left.
  • Author Dinesh D’Souza said that Obama “might not think the Muslim Brotherhood is a problem, because he might think, "well, look, these are the good guys trying to liberate Egypt from this horrible dictator who is supported by us, the rogue nation, the United States.”
  • World Net Daily reports that a former US ambassador to Egypt secretly met with a top Muslim Brotherhood member and “discussed fall of Egypt with group dedicated to Islam's global spread;” other right-wing media picked up the story.
