The US State Dept has taken interest in training the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as far back as 2007. This type of training was mostly geared towards how the Muslim Brotherhood can get involved in the Egyptian government and gain ground in local government using democratic principles.
Confidential State Department cables revealed by Wikileaks show how this effort was funded. Through the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) a conference was to be held “on the role of Islamist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, in democratic politics.” (Click pic for cable)
The conference was to include “American academics and policy makers”. So when Hillary Clinton told a group of activists, shortly after Mubarak stepped down, “We gave grants that the government did not like to support union organizing, to support organizing on behalf of political opposition to the regime. That goes back many years” she was absolutely right.
And earlier in the same interview she also said “everyone will have a place at the table”. When asked if this included the Muslim Brotherhood by a youth activist Sec. Clinton’s response was “whoever they are should have the opportunity to compete for Egyptian votes”. Full interview transcript is available at the State Dept Website with video. (in case you didnt trust my first link) Also, if there was any doubt that a political shift wouldnt include the Brotherhood and fellow Islamists then I refer you to the UNDP Egypt report from 2008 (pg.34 box 1.6)
I announced earlier in the week that I would wrap up the investigation into the State Dept and their involvement in uprisings around the world. In case you missed it here is your cheat sheet. As an update the State Dept has responded to the repercussions on the Stealth Internet (carried at Your Daddy’s Politics: Here and Here) and for the first time in history has not allowed the press to use the individuals names. In print they are only referred to #1 and #2; seriously (more on that tomorrow) But for now, your cheat sheet-you’re welcome

Google Egypt: Ghonim not the only tie to protesters. Which was then plagiarized by Glenn Beck which he and his staff made no attempt to correct even after being made aware of it. See this in my part 4 of my Breitbart interview here
Google Egypt 2: Delete Everything – The organizers asked me to delete my articles after the revolution kicked off. I refused, they deleted their own info but not before I screen-capped it

Clinton Admits funding opposition labor unions in Egyptian uprisings: Shortly after the fall of Mubarak Clinton tells Egyptian activists that they “gave grants to opposition labor unions to support organizing on behalf of the opposition.” She also said the results in Egypt were “what we hoped for is what happened.”

State Department to Youth Groups discussing the redemptive qualities of Mohammed Atta,how he was effective as a community organizer, and had the same “power with people” as they do. (With video) Amazingly this speech was given just weeks before the Egyptian uprising-which they not only funded, but helped plan.
