With Benghazi still burning in the rear-view mirror of its wobbly foreign policy, the Obama administration is set to ship the Islamic Brotherhood government of Egypt 10 F16 fighter jets and 200 Abrams tanks and charge it to U.S. taxpayers...

...the Islamic Brotherhood is not a U.S. ally. Nevertheless, the Obama administration is prepared to arm them to the teeth with cutting-edge tanks and planes

Obama just stabbed the people of Israel in the back. Expect another stab when Iran announces it has a working A-Bomb.

Please help me to understand; under what authority does Obama “give” ANYTHING to any foreign country? As Commander in Chief can he simply order military hardware to be given away? Or did he just write up another executive order?

There’s not that much technology in the base platform. They don’t get the 120mm gun or, more importantly, the advanced armor. I believe these “monkey models” get the basic, cold-rolled steel plate and not the ceramic-composite Chobham armor of the American M1A2 versions.

That, and the fact that Egypt is incapable of maintaining the Abrams without US contractor and parts support. Same lesson we learned with Iran, where aircraft were rendered helpless immediately or within just a few months without US logistics support.
