Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair explained Tuesday that the embattled Egyptian president was "immensely courageous and a force for good."
Is it just me, or are these criminals becoming more and more transparent by the day in showing what they stand for? Either they're not as good at hiding their evil manipulations, or they are DELIBERATELY coming out in the open, knowing that no one seems capable of opposing or stopping their twisted schemes against the masses? ....
"And for those of us who worked with him over the -- particularly now I worked with him on the Middle East peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinians, so this is somebody I'm constantly in contact with and working with."
