Some of us, Fritz, do notice that, and try to out it to stop any more of it. Too many times very petty goals like "getting elected" cause such outcomes around the world. The more truth, the better. Hosni wasn't that different than Shah or Saddam, two terrible people the US initially fell for because of convenience.
That's actually accurate. Well done.
Just like with Rumsfeld meeting with Saddam, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" takes place with good frequency in the ME.
