White House congratulates Egypt's Morsi

The White House congratulated Egypt's president-elect Mohamed Morsi on his victory in that country's presidential election, calling it a "milestone" in the country's transition to democracy.
President Obama called Morsi Sunday evening, telling him that the United States would stand by Egypt in its transitional period — and said that he looked forward to working together.

Of course Obama congratulated Muslim Brotherhood president-elect, Mohamed Morsi. After all Obama takes a large part of the credit for the result. He threatened billions in U.S. aid to the Egyptian Military leaders if they did not hand power over to the Muslim Brotherhood Leader. The Obama administration warned Egypt’s military leaders on Monday to speedily hand over power or risk losing billions of dollars in U.S. military and economic aid to the country.( Does anybody doubt Obama's influence in the predictable outcome and decline into the hands of Radical Islamists.
