Why is US supporting Muslim brotherhood?

PJ Media:
As the CIA continues to defend their investment in the Muslim Brotherhood to bring "moderate Islamist democracy" to the Middle East, much of the Middle East and our European allies are moving against the group.

I noted here at PJ Media last month that many of America's Arab allies (Egypt, UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia), as well as Israel, had moved well ahead of the U.S. in addressing the group's toxic influence....

Back in February, I reported that the CIA and the National Intelligence Council (NIC) provided the funds to support Nixon Center researchers Robert Leiken and Steven Brooke to create the "moderate Muslim Brotherhood" narrative during the Bush administration. That became the basis for their Foreign Affairs article of that same title....
...
Yet across Europe, intelligence agencies are warning about the group's operations in their respective countries -- and some are taking action.
...
There is much more.

I tend to side with those who know the group the best in the region.  I think it is a malevolent actor that pretends to be "moderate" while also pushing an Islamist supremacy doctrine.  The only thing I can figure is that the intelligence agencies in the US must think they get some valuable intelligence from them.  If that is the case they are trusting a blatantly two-faced organization.
