The United States will cut off aid to Egypt in the wake of the July coup against President Mohamed Morsy and the turmoil that has followed, a U.S. official said Tuesday.

The Obama administration withheld some military aid to Egypt in August.

The U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the full suspension has been prompted by an "accumulation of events," including recent violence against protesters, dozens of whom were killed over the weekend.

“Give the money to Israel.”

Fat chance. This is Obama we are talking about, remember? He loathes Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood are his sympatico’s. And no one should think Obama naive. Never naive. Planned socialist agenda, that is what describes him.

Does that mean that we can use the billion dollars not spent on these America hating banshees to reduce the $16 trillion debt?


We need it for food stamps and free contraception.

Obama is failed Carter policy on steroids.

LOL!!! True.

The POTUS is doing the EXACT OPPOSITE of what he should be doing. This makes no sense, Egypt as a somewhat reliable ally will now leave the US sphere of influence and turn to the Russkies, circa pre 1977.

Egypt is fighting America's enemies. The US is cutting off support after 35 years?? All that because the poor diddums are outlawing the MB?
The MB KILLED SADAT for crissakes!

America once again, put all her eggs into one basket. Billions in military hardware invested there and now? Too bad they didn't give all that stuff to a responsible and stable country that is truly loyal to the US - ISRAEL. Does anybody get this?

Egypt now has more critical ties with Israel clandestinely that at any point since their bilateral-relations.

Obama is throwing a monkey-wrench into the works of the entire region. Carter on steroids, indeed!

They keep using that word, “coup.” I do not think it means what they think it means.

Coup: “A sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.” What the people of Egypt did was not “illegal,” it was the will of the vast majority of the people, “democracy” in action.

Yep, we agree here.

Nobody is as smart as a Leftist who is convinced how smart he is.

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

[by “anti-government activists” is meant church-burning jihadists]
