Obama: Muslim Brotherhood doesn't have majority support

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama said Sunday that Egypt is not going to go back to the way it was before pro-democracy protests roiled the country, and played down prospects that the Muslim Brotherhood would take a major role in a new government.
"I think that the Muslim Brotherhood is one faction in Egypt," Obama said. "They don't have majority support."
The president said it it's important "not to say that our only two options are the Muslim Brotherhood, or to suppress the Egyptian people."
