How else can he explain his silence when pro-democracy forces were coming out in huge numbers to protest against the fraudulent Iranian election in the summer of 2009. His actions were drastically different, however, when protesters wanted to oust Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Obama became an interferer-in-chief and would not rest until Mubarak was gone. Now that the Egyptians are protesting against the dictatorial powers Muhammad Morsi bestowed upon himself, Obama is mum once again.
The situation is similar in Libya. Obama has shown support for the rebels who were fighting against Khaddafi. Only problem is the rebels were and still are members of al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, and Obama is arming them.

The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, United States officials and foreign diplomats.No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and[...] from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government.
The Qatari assistance to fighters viewed as hostile by the United States demonstrates the Obama administration’s continuing struggles in dealing with the Arab Spring uprisings, as it tries to American military entanglements. Relying on surrogates allows the United States to keep its fingerprints off operations, but also means they may play out in ways that conflict with American interests.popular protest movements while avoiding“To do this right, you have to have on-the-ground intelligence and you have to have experience,” said Vali Nasr, a former State Department adviser who is now dean of the Paul H.
