We want to make sure that you have the Apache helicopters, the F-16s, the equipment that you have so bravely used to capture terrorists and to take care of this menace that’s on your border. Many of you have asked, do we understand who the enemy is? We can speak for ourselves. We do.
We have seen the threat that the Muslim Brotherhood has posed here for the people in Egypt. We've seen the threat that the Muslim Brotherhood has posed around the world. We stand against this great evil. We are not for them. We remember who caused 9/11 in America. We remember who it was that killed 3,000 brave Americans. We have not forgotten. We know that you have dealt with that enemy as well.
~ Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, R-Minn, in Egypt
The American people do not support the Muslim Brotherhood. We oppose all forms of terror and terrorism.
~ Steve King, R-Iowa
We met with for a long meeting General el-Sissi and many of the military leaders, and my friend Steve King mentioned again about our heritage in America. George Washington, doing what no one had ever done before him, led a military in revolution, won the revolution, and then resigned and went home.
And we met, in General el-Sissi, a man who is leader of the military, who might have a shot at being elected president, but is more concerned about giving his life to help his country, Egypt.
~ Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-Texas
. . . a ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit — unbelievable, ludicrous, almost comic if it wasn’t so painful.
~ Samer Shehata, a political scientist at the University of Oklahoma who studies Egypt and the Brotherhood, in New York Times
There are times when the U.S. Congress seems to almost exist in a parallel reality which defies any sense of logic or reason to the real world. There are also times when certain individuals within that reality are just bizarre in their idealistic foundation to the point that they stretch the boundaries of sanity. In a video released Saturday, three Republican congress members made a strong case for the latter.
. . . Bachmann herself stated that the delegation had been asked, ‘Do you understand who the enemy is?’ The reasoning for that question to be asked seems pretty obvious. They have no clue, and are blinded by their own bigotry toward Muslim faith.

This group looks like they're afraid they're going to get "Muslim" on them. Not that there appears to be anyone else in the room. Honestly, the vibe of this whole thing is "Nervous Delegation of Earthlings Meet Aliens in a Sci-Fi Movie."

Hollywood needs to do a movie version of the Bachmann-Gohmert-King trio's road trip to Egypt. Its comedic gold!

If Assad gives up chemical weapons, we'll throw in Bachmann and Gohmert. No really, for the sake of peace, he can have them.
