As the Obama administration cancels aid to Egypt, questions arise regarding the relation of that decision to the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Does the president's use of military operatives to conduct the missions in Libya and Somalia point to a reduced dependence on drones?

Members of the U.S. Army’s Delta Force captured al-Qaeda leader Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai — known by his alias, Anas al-Libi — in a raid in Tripoli, Libya, on October 5, reported the Indian newspaper the Post. Al-Liby is under indictment in the United States for his alleged role in the August 7, 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya.

Following a year of silence on the case, President Obama has appealed to the president of Iran to release an American pastor who languishes in an Iranian prison.

President Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, may be added to Egypt’s terror watch list as a result of his alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Malik also serves as the executive secretary of the Dawa Organization, a group created by the government of Sudan, considered by the United States State Department to be a terrorist state. According to WND, Malik also served as the best man at Barack Obama’s wedding to Michelle in 1992.
