    Turmoil in Egypt isn’t stopping a shipment of 20 F-16 fighter jets, including this one – already emblazoned with Egypt’s flag.

Instability in Egypt, where a newly-elected Islamic government teeters over an angry population, isn’t enough to stop the U.S. from sending more than 20 F-16 fighter jets, as part of a $1 billion foreign aid package.

The first four jets are to be delivered to Egypt beginning Jan. 22, a source at the naval air base in Fort Worth, where the planes have been undergoing testing, told FoxNews.com. The North African nation already has a fleet of more than 200 of the planes and the latest shipment merely fulfills an order placed two years ago. But given the uncertainty in Cairo, some critics wonder if it is wise to be sending more top gun planes.

    Obama’s a Muslim secret agent. He has to be. Why else would he be be sending super-advanced fighters to a country that wants to lead a movement to take over the world and force it under an Islamic dictatorship after it destroys America’s closest ally in the Middle East? It’s like giving Hitler a gift of 100 of the most advanced Spitfires, complete with radar, back in 1938. There is no possible other reason other than that he is one of them…

    He is a Moslem, I am not so sure about the secret part, the lack of acknowledgement that he is Moslem is due more to willful blindlessness on the part of the US media.
