Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has suddenly decided that it's not the Egyptian military's new best friend, after all. See the NPR report from earlier tonight, which quotes AP and AFP on the story. During the protests that led to Mubarak's ouster the generals looked on the Brothers as a useful idiot. It will be interesting to see who turned out to be the idiot. For readers who enjoy 3D chess (I don't), the U.S. government has the Muslim Brotherhood on speed dial.
