Hitto and his wife, Suzanne, have four children who were all born in the United States according to the New York Times. Hitto, not surprisingly, was the choice of Syria's Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamic group that seems to have a lot of credibility with the Obama administration for some very strange reason. Brotherhood leaders claim they seek a new civil government but many rightfully fear the same thing will happen in Syria as occurred when an American citizen, Mohamed Morsi, became Egypt's new president with the support of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Obama administration. Civil rights in Egypt have been thrown back into the stone age in a very short period of time as the Morsi government has moved to impose religious law in place of civil laws with horrifying consequences to the country's women, Coptic Christians and other minority groups.
