White House Move to Give Egypt $450 Million in Aid Meets Resistance
New York Times ^ | 9/28/2012 | STEVEN LEE MYERS

Posted on 09/28/2012 3:30:06 PM PDT by jonatron

The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it intends to give Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million, but the move immediately encountered resistance from lawmakers wary of foreign aid in general and of Egypt’s new course under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The aid is part of $1 billion in assistance that the Obama administration has pledged to Egypt to bolster its economy and its transition to democracy following the overthrow last year of Hosni Mubarak, the country’s autocratic president.

The only thing we should ever give Egypt is the business end of an ICBM.

So, what will congress actually DO to block this aid to our national enemies, at a time when our country is drowning in debt?

Nothing, I’ll bet, but shake a finger or two for the cameras.

What, Boner block spending? Don’t make me laugh.

cash money should NEVER, EVER be given to foreign countries... only finished goods made in America should be given as aid if it's given at all

“to give Egypt...$450 million to the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Buckwheat is the Muslim Brotherhood, and, IMO, he set up the Libyan ambassador and ordered the attack in order to blame a stupid YouTube video in order to attack our First Amendment freedom.

The circumstantial evidence, for me, is overwhelming.

What the hell.He tried killing the Second Amendment by running his deadly Fast and Furious Program.

The SOB almost got away with doing it.

Obviously a lot of good for the Muslim Brotherhood. Probably helped them produce the Innocence of Muslims to use as. Pretext to attack the embassies.

How about sending them lectures and materials on constitutional government, free enterprise, civil society, and so on?

When everybody is clear on the concept, we can talk about aid, trade, whatever.

This money is going to the Islamists who just stormed our embassy and destroyed our flag.

We should not give them the money, instead spend it on rockets to blow them off their motorcycles next time they try that stunt. And, there will be a next time, very soon.

• Issue a new $100 bill with Mohammed’s crudely drawn image on the front, bacon on the back.
• Send aid to Egypt in form of $100 bills.
• Cut aid amount back to $400.

why do these freaks, or freaks anywhere else in this world need our money?

Did America receive aid four our “fledgling Democracy” 300 years ago??

Heck no — we fledged our own Democracy — out of sheer guts, will, and determination.

No infusion of cash was necessary.

All foreign aid needs to STOP, immediately!!!

Republicans, where the F are you???

Acually we did receive foreign aid from the French. But then again, we were allies at the time.

Oh-Oh, you know all my hot buttons :) danger..

Don't forget, after Ryan votes for it and calls it a historic success it means he always opposed it, just like parts of the budget control act. We must elect MR so Obama cant force Ryan to vote for bad bills like that anymore LOL.

I say the US needs to stop giving aid to ANYONE other than ourselves for awhile.

Obie, you cannot BUY respect from the Middle East.
They will gladly take our money, and bomb our embassies again and again.

Giving money to the freaking Muslim Brotherhood, aka al quaeda!!!!

It’ll possibly be a transition to any number of things, but not Democracy. Theocracy maybe, Kleptocracy, certainly, especially now that it seems to be a fait accompli that they won’t be cut off from mounting millions of our dollars sent to “help” this fictitious “transition”. If Romney doesn’t touch on this, he’s losing a big opportunity.

What is the current status of the current female US Ambassador to Egypt?

Is she still in Cairo?

Doesn she still have US Marines ‘guarding’ her embassy without live ammo?

There hasn’t been a peep about her since Stevens was murdered.

This is Obama’s reward to them for not actually killing any Americans during the embassy attacks.

Originally he was going to give them twice as much.

Actually, I believe the nations ought to be making payments into the US treasury to reimburse us for aid and UN dues. Egypt in particular should return all aid in consequence of violating the treaty under which it was granted.
