Posted on 03/12/2014 7:51:48 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
The Obama administration has turned down an urgent appeal from Egypts government for the delivery of U.S. Apache attack helicopters needed for counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula.
U.S. officials and a Western diplomat said the 10 AH-64 attack helicopters had been blocked from delivery in October in response to the administrations opposition to the military ouster of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammad Morsi last year.
The U.S. Embassy in Cairo within the past several weeks relayed the Egyptian governments appeal to send the new Apaches in a cable to the State Department.
According to U.S. officials, the Egyptians said the attack helicopters were urgently needed for Cairos fight in the Sinai against a new al Qaeda-linked terrorist group called Ansar Bait al-Maqdis, or Ansar Jerusalem.
One official said the embassy cable reported that the Egyptians do not understand why the Obama administration, by blocking delivery of the Apaches, appears to be supporting the ousted Morsi regime.

More lies from Obozo.
I have no words to describe my contempt.
Including Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhoods involvement. Which will implicate Obama.
Totally agree. And he is in 100% CYA mode.
He will be exposed in Benghazi if the Egyptian courts tell all. And I suspect Morsi will tell all.
This EXEMPT Congress is the most disgusting, hated,
EXEMPT, treasonous body in the history of the planet.
They deliberately allowed the ruination of a country
and its allies, as they made themselves, and their
special families, and their extra=special staffs
and mistresses EXEMPT from their “laws”.
The EXEMPT did NOTHING as every Law was broken by criminals.
If America against Israel, choose America.
If America against a European democracy, choose the Euro democracy.
If Euro-democracy against Euro-socialist nation, choose the Euro-socialist policy.
If Euro-socialist against Euro-Communist, choose the Euro-Communist state.
If Euro-Communist elected leader against Communist dictator, choose the Communist dictatorship.
If Communist-dictatorship against Euro/democratic Muslim state, choose the Euro-democratic Muslim state.
If Euro/democratic Muslim against Statist Muslim, choose the Statist Muslim leader.
If Statist Muslim against Muslim dictator/king, choose the Muslim dictator/king.
If Muslim dictator/king against Muslim theocracy, choose the Muslim theocracy.
If Muslim theocracy against Muslim fundamentalist theocracy, choose the Muslim fundamentalist.
If Muslim fundamentalist theocracy against Muslim extremists, choose the Muslim extremists.
The Morsi Trials are underway. Obama puts the full court press on Egypt to suppress the results.
Expose them all.
Obama continues to act AGAINST the best interests of the United States and its people.
Russian arms deal with Egypt
Yes, he does.
Yes, I saw that. Am still hoping they will find a way to stay out of the arms of the Russian Bear.
We need to kick Obozo to the curb and stop this crap.
Hussein is sore from Egypt ejecting his Mozz Brotherhood.
He’s also sore from Larry Sinclair.
We must expose his involvement in Benghazi.
Along with Morsi and the MB Terrorists.
If it weren’t for the MSM running interference, Hussein never would’ve made it to square one.
He would’ve remained in the Senate, voting present.
Everybody remember that when MSM acts ‘shocked’ at Arpaio revelations.
And web content filtering too.
Both in search results and denying access to websites.
Sounds about right. However, a sympathetic Russian offer of helicopter assets might free them up to share their knowledge.
This is getting so ridiculous that I could see the entire Middle East, including Israel, becoming a satellite of Russia.
Next prez will have a mess on his/her hands.
Huh, the Obama regime had no problem giving the now banned Muslim Bros military stuff. Oh well, maybe Egypt should turn to Russia for help.
The Russians have good attack choppers, buy their aircraft and weapons systems.
They already have.
My guess is the Egyptian pilots are already up to speed on the Apache and prefer it. But I think Obozo is trying to blackmail the Egyptians to not expose the truth about Obama and the MB involvement in Benghazi.
He has never been on the right side of an issue since he was in office. And he will never be.
