U.S. officials have met members of the Muslim Brotherhood's political party, a U.S. diplomat confirmed.
This confirms that life after the "Arab Spring" is not as positive as some first thought.  There was much concern over how much influence the Muslim Brotherhood, who Egyptian President Mubarak banned from politics, had in the aftermath of non-support for American ally Mubarak.

Don't be surprised if we have another Islamic Republic of Iran in 3-5 years.  While the Arab Spring may have been a legitimate and spontaneous uprising which led to a Revolution, the Arab Street of Islamic politics is an ingrained social force inside all Muslim countries.

The Arab Spring may lead to an Arab Winter or worse Tsunami in the end.  We will know after upcoming elections in both Egypt and Tunisia, to what extent radical Islam exerts its power on once moderate Arab countries.
