Ambassador Patterson Meets the General Guide

For the first time, a US Ambassador has met officially with the General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood. US Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson met with General Guide Muhammad Badie.

In fact, Badie has already met with Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns, so the meeting is not that surprising. He has also met recently with Senator John Kerry and former President Jimmy Carter.
