The Egyptian military recently used American-made Apache helicopter gunships to fire rockets into houses in the Sinai Peninsula, the latest in a series of lethal raids targeting a little-known Al Qaeda-inspired group that has bombed civilians.
The April 23 raid came on the same day that the State Department lifted a hold on military aid to Egypt.
The Obama administration has struggled for months to limit the political crackdown launched by former Field Marshal Abdel Fattah Sisi, who now heads the Egyptian government.

Yup, I can see how this would worry zero and kerrystein, considering that the Egyptians used it against zero's buddies.
Worry? Try thinking instead. It will be ironic that when Pharoh Sisi I leads his armies into oil rich eastern Libya to “provide security”, a few of those Apache helicopters will be downed by anti aircraft missiles the US gave to the Libyan “freedom fighters”,
The Obama Administration is upset because their darling Muslim Brotherhood fanatics have been thoroughly ousted and targets for the radical Islamics they are, and therefore the US aide is actually going to means to help the Egyptians instead of further the aims of those radicals.
Who were all tied up in the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi and the secret arms running coming out of Libya and going to Al Quida in Syria.
That’s the dirty secret...and the Obama admin is not happy that the military and people in Egypt figured it out and threw the vipers out.

Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt's Generals: 'How Does Your Conscience Feel Now?'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.

obama must be really upset that over 600 of his muslim brotherhood buddies were sentenced to death
What a joke. “money sent to a bearded savage country may be misdirected”
What do they think is going to happen to the money? All bearded savages know how to do is kill other bearded savages, Christians, Jews and atheists.
Do they think the money is going to make cultured, civilized, kind, tolerant humans out of the savages?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Would this be the Sinai the US agreed to defend under Carter, then manned with a small, ineffective international force of "observers? Egypt's doing what the US agreed to do.
Killing terrorists really get's under the administration's skin.
If I were General el Sissi, I would tell the big shot U.S. generals and Obummer that they have no standing to critique me on how to fight a war. Just help me out with the weapon support and my country will shore up its own national security.
Have you seen this?
