Egypt's Foreign Ministry has strongly criticized the United States after a State Department spokeswoman said the Egyptian government used its military aid "against their own people." ... State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf made the comments Thursday in response to a question about U.S. military aid to Israel during the Gaza war.
Abdel-Atti said the U.S. aid Egypt received was used in combating terrorism. He said: "These condemned remarks reflect complete ignorance and incompetence in understanding the reality of things in Egypt."
Harf's comments refer to the heavy security crackdown in Egypt on Islamist supporters of ousted President Mohammad Morsi, removed from power by the military last year after millions protested against him.

Since Zero doesn’t fire her, she was speaking his mind.
Worst president since a World War II.
obumber wants the Muslim Brotherhood back in power.
I can not understand how a person like that could be president.
Meanwhile Obama is using the Federal powers of government against its own people.
Since Carter. At least he only got one term...
How many Americans, Egyptians, Israelis, and Mexicans
have been murdered because of the US State Dept.?
They are shameless traitors.
And they are not done.
"Free Republic is here to continue fighting for independence and freedom and against the unconstitutional encroachment of ever expanding socialist government...
We believe in the founding principles with all our hearts and mean to defend them to our dying breath..."
The US State Department is trying to interfere with Egypt AGAIN???? Look what happened last time they interfered. The country collapsed. You destroy countries now
BINGO...They use their policies, spy apparatus, aid and abet millions entering illegally against us..big deal...This is nothing new. It’s odd the State Dept talkette pointing the finger at other countries...
There goes the mutt Harf again.
In fact top government heads right here consider many of the American people to be worse than foreign terrorist, AH’s, dangerous and on and on.
They even put it in writing...
Don’t worry about the state department, Egypt. Don’t listen to them, we certainly don’t.
The only thing that this misadministration is 100% competent at, is incompetence.
Obama’s foreign policy is just unbelievable for an American president.
She is exceedingly annoying.
Of course — Zero, Lurch, Plugs, Jarrett are allies of Iran’s mullahcracy, just as Jimmuh was and still is.

We have obviously sided with the Muslim Brotherhood. Our gubermint is infiltrated to the core.
Caroline Glick notes that the Iranian ‘Revolutionary’ Guard who flew in by the planeload to Venezuela were given Venezuelan passports and have probably been crossing the border in this latest criminal act by Zero.
Everyday they prove which side they’re on and it ain’t ours.
“”These condemned remarks reflect complete ignorance and incompetence in understanding the reality of things in Egypt.””
Don’t feel bad. That’s our State Department where “complete ignorance and incompetence” is a requirement for a job there. It would be nice if we could have some maturity in the personnel there. We have the old fossil Kerry and the spokespersons are barely out of high school. OK - out of college but with limited knowledge of anything outside of the college atmosphere...but heck - that goes for the goon in the WH also.
“These condemned remarks reflect complete ignorance and incompetence in understanding the reality of things in Egypt.”
Ignorance and incompetence is not limited to Egypt by
The Egyptian hit the nail on the head. Total incompetence and ignorance. Harf was a campaign worker and ends up being state department spokesperson. This country is in big trouble.
No. Worst president in our history.
Hey, what happened to the ‘harf alert’?
That's the bottom line, and that's what's going on here.
Given their public appearance, it certainly seems that way. However, when I was a student at the Air War College, we had a Foreign Service Officer in my seminar. (This is common practice in all the Services' War Colleges: include people from State, the other Services, and allied Services). I was very impressed with that guy. He was intelligent and vigorously defended his views. I have sometimes wondered if he was sent to AWC to get him out of the way for a while, because he didn't seem to fit in with the overall image of the State Department.
We should stand back in awe and admire the genius of Obama’s smart diplomacy in action.
Ruinous foreign policy. This isn’t even basic incompetence. To make this much mess, you have to mean it.
is she a career employee or one of Obama’s groupies?
Probably need to have Lurch make an emergency run to Egypt to patch things up (and maybe a Nobel nomination?). If that doesn’t work, they could ask Benghazi Clinton to step up and fill the leadership void!
