Today, Bill Clinton is hosting Muslim Brotherhood leader and Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi at his Clinton Global Initiative conference. There are many heads of states speaking at the conference, including President Obama and his challenger Mitt Romney, but a Muslim Brotherhood leader?

Hosting a radical leader who has announced his intention to institute sharia law for the state, saying it represented the only means by which Egyptians might “restore their dignity”?

Hosting a radical leader who has pledged to fight for the release of the Blind Sheik, the terrorist mastermind behind the World Trade Center bombing?

Hosting a radical leader who wants American’s free speech to be curtailed?

Hosting a radical leader who quietly sat on stage at a Muslim Brotherhood rally for his benefit while a colleague forcefully proclaimed “Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca, or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem Allah-willing” and “Our cry shall be: A million martyrs march towards Jerusalem. We shall die as martyrs on its threshold”?

Morsi didn’t condemn this speech and Bill Clinton rewards him with the legitimacy of a speech before world leaders.

And this is the Big Willie who is now seen as Obama’s greatest asset?
