Egyptian Govt: McCain ‘persona non grata, an unwelcome person’

The Egyptian Cabinet took offense to comments Senator John McCain (R – AZ) made to the Washington Post about his advice to the new government of Egypt about releasing Muslim Brotherhood prisoners. The cabinet tweeted on Tuesday:

McCain remarks from inside the Egy territory to the W.Post insults the Egy sovereignty.we consider him persona non grata.an unwelcome person

— Egyptian Cabinet (@Cabinet_eg) August 6, 2013

The Egyptian government quickly deleted the tweet.

McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham (R – S.C.) are both in Egypt in an attempt to the push U.S. policy that the current interim leadership should negotiate with supporters of the now ousted president Mohamed Morsi. According to the Washington Post:

“We advised the existing government to release some of the Muslim Brotherhood prisoners they are holding as a gesture to try to get negotiations started between them,” McCain said in an interview as he left the country Tuesday.

    The Washington ruling class just can’t accept how little respect other countries have for them.

    Leave, McLame, before you screw things up worse.

    There are times when I think we dodged a bullet in 2008.

    But then I come to my senses and realize 2008 was just a no-win situation: an electoral Kobiashi Maru.

    Senator Persona Non Grata; I like it, has a nice ring to it.

    I don’t have a representative senator anymore. I have Senator Persona Non Grata and Jeff the Flake.

    John & Lindsey make a great couple. Release known terrorists in order to “hopefully” negotiate with other known terrorists. Let’s apply that to a completely different scenario: Gang of 10 people beat the crap out of an old guy and only 4 are arrested. According to the Bobbsey twins we should release 2 of the gang members in hopes that the other 6 still on the loose won’t beat the crap out of any more old people. Yeah, that seems about right in this twisted upside-down world.

    I do not understand any of this. Obama finds a dupe Republican to volunteer to try and save his faiked foreign policy. When he falls flat on his face, then Obama can blame a Republican.

    Where is Kerry? Where is Clinton or the rest of Obama’s deep bench of smart diplomats? He has to call up McCain and Graham? They won’t even negotiate with teabagging crazies in their own party but they’ll crawl on all fours for forced clitorectomies and child rapists.
