Skip to comments.His Options Few, Obama Rebukes Egypt’s Leaders [Pathetic POTUS]
Posted on 08/15/2013 9:14:01 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
President Obama announced Thursday that the United States had canceled longstanding joint military exercises with the Egyptian Army set for next month, using one of his few obvious forms of leverage to rebuke Egypts military-backed government for its brutal crackdown on supporters of the ousted president, Mohamed Morsi.
Though the decision is an embarrassment to Egypts generals, and will deprive Egypt of much-needed revenue, it lays bare both the Obama administrations limited options to curb the militarys campaign against Islamists in Egypt and the United States role as an increasingly frustrated bystander.
Some analysts said the administration had hurt itself by not undertaking a thorough review of its policy toward Egypt after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak in 2011. The United States, they said, was too wedded to the privileges it gained from the relationship, like fly-over rights and fast-track transit through the Suez Canal.

owebama OWNS this! Will he EVER be held accountable for ANY of this? Doubtful.
Too little too late as the Egyptian Military Leaders are moving towards Moscow for funding.

I have to slap someone around..
all this undue stress is putting my golf game off..
Gross. The New York Times supports crucifixions in 2013,
and slavery AS IT ALWAYS DOES.
Holding Obama responsible for his screw-ups would be similar to holding a 2 month old puppy responsible for peeing on the carpet. They both have the same mental capacity and lack of self responsibility. (The Supreme Court used the same reasoning to hold that you can’t execute a retarded person for the crimes they commit).
Obama is in way over his head. He’s finding out that being the President of the United States is not as easy as it looks on TV. The Nobel rodeo clowns didn’t help when they went into their “Everybody Gets A Trophy” mode for Barry and gave him a Nobel for doing nothing more than breathing and showing up to pick it up.
In terms of his stated desire to “transform” America, I’d say nobama, the clown president is doing well. The degenerate clown should be in prison.
Obama outlined his foreign policy toward Muslims with an apologetic speech in Cairo in 2009. Doesn’t look like he will be invited back to give another performance.
Time to call Hillary back to work on her Arab Spring theme.
Maybe some other nation will take him out of office.
Lest anyone forget where his loyalties lay...
Meanwhile - Meal cards yanked form our Wounded Warriors at Reed...
From what I know, I support Egypt’s leadership...they ousted that Muslim Brotherhood radical Morsi from the government. That guy was bad news.
Hell, they didn't do such a review BEFORE they engineered the ouster.
