DAVOS, Switzerland - US President Barack Obama plans to accelerate the pace of American aid to Egypt, a top State Department official said on Wednesday, as the most populous Arab nation reaches a critical stage in its uncertain transition away from autocratic rule.
Undersecretary of State Robert Hormats, part of a US delegation that held unprecedented talks last week with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, said Washington wanted to provide "more immediate benefits" to Egyptians, who earlier this month conducted their first democratic elections in decades.
"During this period, we want to be as supportive as we can. This is an historic moment. Egypt's a country of enormous importance," Hormats said.

Love to see the details of this aid. How much of it can be used to attack Israel or free up other resources to attack Israel?
And he’s getting the money from????????????????????????
Give Soetero credit, he's not troubling himself to be subtle.
Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as borrowing more money from one enemy, China, to give to another enemy, the Muslim Brotherhood of Terrorists. It’s two kicks in Amerikkka’s groin for the price of one!
I’d like to say something real ugly, but I’d be banned.
The man is insane. Rewarding a country that just elected radical islamists? He couldn’t be more idiotic if he tried.

Yassir Al-Burhami: "Appointing infidels to positions of authority over Muslims is prohibited. Allah said: Never will Allah grant the infidels a way [to triumph] over the Believers."
And we are expected to NOT see that 1+1=2 ?
The man is not insane. He is not rewarding the MB. He is just giving his brethren their inalienable caliphate rights.
He is calling for “aid” to his proxies for the upcoming Egypt-Israeli war as they recognize they are out gunned, out thought and up against a far more advanced people.
Money cannot cure stupidity. Ask Saudi Arabia. Better yet ask Iraq and Afghanistan. More than enough money has been thrown at those areas and the core problem has not been addressed ~ Islam.
Bammer? Traitorous bassturd.
He is a Muslim supporting Muslims.
What else do you expect?
Idiotic? I suppose he would be if he was opposed to radical Muslims governing Egypt. He isn’t. Just the opposite.
Obama's timing is impeccable.
Remember when they took out Osama? It was reported that after being told they could take him, Obama went off by himself for 16 hours before giving the word. My first thought -- rather cynically :) -- was "Probably clearing it with the Muslim Brotherhood!"
Subsequent events? IIRC, there was very little Arab response to the killing of Osama -- no Arab street in flames. Soon after, Obama jumped on the chance to declare an "Arab spring" and give American support to ousting Mubarak. Then Ghadaffi (or however you want to transliterate it). In sum, I thought and still think the deal was that if they didn't hassle him about ordering Osama killed, he would support them in taking over, well, whatever they could get away with. It may not be over.
This is not going to end well.
Obama funding the murder of Christians and Jews.
Subsidizing the rope with which they will hang us....
Pakistan and Egypt are not and never will be our friends no matter how many billions we pour into them. Imagine what a competent and determined CIA could accomplish in these countries with even half the $$ we spend to subsidize our enemies.
We should stop fooling around in the bush leagues and just subsidize the Iranian nuke and ICBM programs.
