By the way, if you haven't heard of this group -- Gamaa Islamiya -- here is a sample below of their "work." Or just do an internet search on the "Luxor Massacre" where you'll learn that 35 tourists were cornered, executed and then their bodies were mutilated with machetes...including women and children. (I should know. My family was on this same tour about one month prior. This could have easily been us.)

Okay. That does it. I voted for Obama the Messiah Is-salami-izer four years ago but I wont be voting for him again. Once a terrorist always a terrorist. He should not be talking at all with any mid-east rulers because they are all terrorists who want us to bye there oil. Mitt Romeny has it right. After the virtuess Hosnai Mubarack was owsted from office by our brilliant president Obalamo Salamo, we should have just bombed Egupt to ashes. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander. Ive talked up this with two of my neighbers who also wont be voting for Obalomo Salamo again.

There is more involved here than meets the eye. The sky may LOOK like it is falling, but actually the rising tides of economic debt and gloom only make the sky look closer than it actually is. There is simply no excuse for us to be spending more on each student in California than Mississippi does. Mississippi has so much more tax money because of the tourist clean up industry. Also, they pay their workers 4 dollars an hour, without benefits. The only way to stem the rising tide of unsustainable debt and liability is to pay our teachers and administrators less than they do in the great state of Mississippi. Currently 49th in how much we spend per student, we cannot afford this luxury. Until we plop into 50th place, our union corruptees will continue to march over our innundated lives. We're swamped! Do the math!

First of all, !!!, you failed to name the individual. It's Hani Nour Eldin, BTW
Second, according to Fox, "...was one of six Egyptian legislators invited to visit Washington by the Woodrow Wilson Center think tank..." not by President Obama.
Third, Fox also mentions that it was Eldin's DELEGATION that held meetings with DEPUTY national security adviser and DEPUTY secretary of state, not with President Obama as your comments imply. The delegation probably included Eldin. No argument there.
Fourth, the State Department is looking into the matter. In my opinion, someone in the State Dept. goofed when issuing Visas.
!!!, you are using what we use to call "yellow journalism" to inflame people.
Finally, steven, a resident of the Stoneridge, you are a phoney. You never voted for Pres. Obama to begin with.
