Mohamed El-Baradei (b June 17, 1942) is an Egyptian diplomat, former Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency and 2005 Nobel Peace Prize winner. Liberals call him a moderate but his views align with extremists of the Muslim Brotherhood. While Director General for the U.N., El-Baradei led an effort to document Iran's nuclear program. He would confirm the Iranian regime was not making nuclear weapons but would publicize that he was disappointed in them not following U.N. rules. U.S. intelligence believe he was duped by Iran and helped undermine Iran sanctions. Notably, he opposed the Iraqi war. During Egypt's uprising in 2011, he called the credibility of America lacking under Barack Hussein Obama. According to Egyptian authorities, El-Baradei received funds exceeding $7 million (US) from Iran’s leadership in 2010 as support for political reform in Egypt. In 2011, he said the Muslim Brotherhood is not extremist and continues to push, not peace, but revolt against Egypt's government by calling for the president to step down. El-Baradei wants to be the leader of Egypt and claims the people are pursuing democracy but that is a lie. Most experts agree that Mubarak's removal will lead to a Sharia government, against Israel and the peace process and against U.S. influence.
