Wolfowitz Asks If A Political Party Can Be Considered Legitimate If They Don't Concede Equal Rights To Women


While continuing to parade one neo-con after another on Fox for their opinions on the revolution in Egypt, The Journal Editorial Review's Paul Gigot asks Paul Wolfowitz about the Muslim Brotherhood's potential participation in the transitional government now that Mubarack has left office. Wolfowitz actually says something I agree with. Heaven forbid any of them will ever apply it to the theo-cons here in the United States.

GIGOT: Alright, briefly, very briefly Paul, should the Muslim Brotherhood participate in this transition?

WOLFOWITZ: I could offer you an opinion, but I really hesitate to do so because I think Egyptians have to decide that. And I hope that they will think about as they make those decisions whether a legitimate political party, a party, a political party can be considered legitimate if for example they don't concede equal rights to women.

GIGOT: Alright.

WOLFOWITZ: There are standards. There should be Egyptian standards.

Yeah Wolfowitz, there ought to be standards on whether we should be invading other countries that are not a threat to us as well, but that doesn't stop Fox from thinking you've got anything legitimate to say about what happens in Egypt.
