Talking with the Muslim Brotherhood -- a group that will use such talks only to try to gain a strategic advantage leading toward ultimate victory, not to establish peaceful coexistence between believers and unbelievers as equals.

WASHINGTON – With suggestions the U.S. negotiate with Syria and Iran dominating the news, Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin reports Washington has already been talking quietly to a Syrian dissident group linked directly to the 9/11 hijackers and their sponsors in al-Qaida.
The group is the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, known for its association with al-Qaida and allied with former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
The Bush administration sought out the terrorists because of its desire for regime change in Damascus – apparently at almost any cost.
The National Security Council staff in August met twice at the White House with members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and former Syrian Vice President Abdul-Halim Khaddam, says the report in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence newsletter published by the founder of WND.
Together, the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and Khaddam are part of a larger opposition group, the National Salvation Front, comprised of a coalition of Syrian opposition figures in exile. The NSF is led by Khaddam. The head of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood is Ali Sadreddine al-Bayanouni.
Now, the National Salvation Front is preparing to open a Washington office which some critics claim may be nothing more than an outlet for the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood to lobby Congress and the administration, reports G2 Bulletin. Some reports suggest that the National Salvation Front already has the tacit approval of the National Security Council, whose officials met with some of the organization's members in August.
