U.S. President Barack Obama has invited Egypt’s newly elected Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi, to visit the United States in September, an Egyptian official said on Sunday, reflecting the new ties Washington is cultivating with the region’s Islamists.

“President Obama extended an invitation to President Morsi to visit the United States when he attends the UN General Assembly in September,” Egyptian aide, Yasser Ali, said after Morsi met U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns.

Burns did not mention the invitation at a news conference earlier.

Washington, long wary of Islamists and an ally of ousted President Hosni Mubarak, shifted policy last year to open formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, the group behind Morsi’s win. Morsi formally resigned from the group when he won the presidency.

  1. “Morsi formally resigned from the group when he won the presidency.”

    *Wink, Wink, Nod Nod*

    Works for duping Washington, but not for the rest of us…

  2. We’ve been informed about to what extent the muslim brotherhood is infiltrated in Mohammed Hussein’s administration. I don’t understand how any of this isn’t universally acknowledged. When the man has been raised a muslim, when he professes allegiance to mohammedanism in so many ways through so many of his actions, when there’s so many testimonials to his muslim faith floating about, he IS a muslim. Taking out Bin Laden you say? Well he couldn’t have really let him slip without completely losing mask for everybody to see now could he. Anyway, Bin Laden, as the developments of the past year and a half are starting to show, was not important in the greater scheme of muslim things. They’ll get there without him.
