Radical Islamist Parties Have Won in Egypt

It's not official but it appears that the Muslim Brotherhood has won the most votes in the first round in Egypt's parliamentary elections.  They seem to have a clear majority in Cairo, Suez, Port Said and Luxor.  Even worse is that the #2 party isn't exactly a liberal secular party but al-Nour which is considered to be more radical than the Muslim Brotherhood (an organization that helped spawn Hamas and Al-Qaeda).  So tell me again why Mubarak had to go?  Brilliant job Obama!  I don't know what's worse, our abandoning our allies in Egypt to radical Islamist groups or our abandoning our allies in Iraq, putting them at the mercy of Iran and it's minions.
