On Saturday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, speaking at a security conference in Germany, said it is "important to follow the transition process announced by the Egyptian government, actually headed by Vice President Omar Suleiman."
Excuse me U.S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but with all due respect, go fuck yourself. Suleiman was the head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate for a ruthless dictator.
As someone on twitter so elegantly put it: "Yeah, I'm sure he's a really nice guy."
“Our intelligence collaboration with Oman Soliman is now probably the most successful element of the relationship” with Egypt, said a 2006 U.S. diplomatic cable that used an alternative transliteration of his name. It described Suleiman as “formidable” and says he is Mubarak’s “consigliere” on foreign policy.
We all know you don't want to lose your precious puppet state, Hillary. Stop making it so damn obvious.
