U.S. Envoy To Egypt Frank Wisner’s Law Firm Has Represented The Mubarak Regime In The Past
Over the weekend, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hand-picked envoy to Egypt, former U.S. diplomat Frank Wisner, caused a diplomatic row when he suggested at the Munich Security Conference that embattled Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak “must stay in office in order to steer [democratic] changes through.” Wisner’s comments were quickly rebuked by the Obama administration, which said that he was speaking as a private citizen and not as a diplomatic envoy.

Now, the U.K Independent’s Robert Fisk has discovered a major conflict of interest that may explain why Wisner was so comfortable with suggesting that Mubarak — who has more than a million of protesters calling on him to step down over the past two weeks — should stay in power during a transition period. Fisk has found that Wisner works for Patton Boggs, a New York-DC law firm that includes in its client list none other than the Egyptian government itself. Patton Boggs even took part in litigation against Americans on behalf of the Egyptian government:

So a name to remember when thinking of people who are major players in the shadow government and the NWO: Frank G. Wisner.

Wisner says "Mubarak must stay."
Obama says: "That's not official ..."
Wisner says: "Yes, it is."

Patton Boggs: law firm of Egypt government, aka Mubarak, represents the leading Egyptian commercial families and their companies, involved in oil and gas and telecommunications infrastructure projects, One of its partners served as chairman of the US-Egyptian Chamber of Commerce, manages contractor disputes in military-sales agreements arising under the US Foreign Military Sales Act
