Obama 'deeply concerned' by Egyptian military's removal of Morsi
politico44 ^ | 7/3/13 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 07/03/2013 4:13:45 PM PDT by ColdOne

President Barack Obama is "deeply concerned" by the Egyptian Armed Forces' decision to remove President Mohamed Morsi from power Wednesday and hopes to see the military quickly return authority to a democratic government.

"The United States is monitoring the very fluid situation in Egypt, and we believe that ultimately the future of Egypt can only be determined by the Egyptian people," Obama said in a statement released nearly four hours after the Egyptian military announced it had removed Morsi from his post. Obama spent part of the afternoon leading a meeting in the Situation Room with members of his national security team, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, who started her current job on Monday.

"Nevertheless, we are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi and suspend the Egyptian constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters," he continued.

I don’t buy it. He supported ElBaredai in the beginning and now that’s the first name being floated.

Of course he’s “deeply concerned” - Morsi is one of his buddies.

I wonder what zero would have demanded done to the Ecuadorean president if Snowden HAD been on the flight zero forced down.. which is quite plainly arbitrary arrest.

I'm sure he is... now he's going to have to spend another $3 billion to try and get another radical Muslim elected.

Arrest morsi - and shoot him while he attempts to escape. That’s the only way to go with a dictator.

The Venezuelan army let Chavez go (in response to US pleas) after removing him and in no time at all he was back, many of the army went to jail or were removed, and he clamped down with a Marxist dictatorship that destroyed VZ.

That has actually happened in several Latin American countries where the people and the military ousted a leftist and, because they failed to kill him, he got back into power, often at the behest of the US or the UN. Naturally, he swore he’d be a good boy, and naturally he immediately purged the resistance forces and locked the country down.

The lesson: when you have the dictator in your hands, kill him right then and there. And then feed his remains to the sharks just to make sure.

I feel the same as you. Once I heard the scum waiting in the wings, I have to wonder. I keep thinking about the ultimate battle being between the leftists and the Islamists. Even though they seem to be in bed together now, perhaps something is happening here we have yet to comprehend!

These freedom-hungry millions of Egyptians could easily decide to simply stomp the MB right down into the sand...

Who would really miss them...??

No wait....

"President Barack Obama is "deeply concerned" by the Egyptian Armed Forces' decision to remove President Mohamed Morsi from power Wednesday and hopes to see the military quickly return authority to a democratic government. "

Yeah, Barack, I saw where you where coming from when Honduras, by their own laws, took care of Zelaya when he tried to become president for life. I see it now in your "concern" for the ouster of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood--while its not the same as what happened in Honduras, the circumstances leading up to what happened in Egypt are eerily similar to what your own administration is doing, i.e., you won the election, but your policies are all aimed at solidifying power in contravention of the democratic process.

So, Barack, is the "concern" for the deposing of your Muslim Brotherhood buddies, or because it could portend something in your future if you continue your lawless ways?

The only thing nobama is really “deeply concerned” about is whether or not justice will catch him and if he will be imprisoned for the rest of his destructive, worthless existence.

ElBaredai is a “moderate” muslim and global socialist (Happy face caliphist) and he has all the right friends like George Soros, Kofi Annan, Sandy Berger, and just about every far left state department official going back to the Carter administration.

He’s the perfect transitional leader to put off the inevitable war between the globalists and the caliphists.

Zero can’t get Egypt to attack Israel as fast as he had planned.

Maybe he’ll have a stroke or something.

Barry Sotero is possibly one of the least accomplished, worthless humans who has ever lived. And to think that he became head of what was once the most powerful nation in the world. Pretty depressing.

Little barry bastard boy needs to shut up and take a low profile. At least Morsi was constitutionally eligible to hold the office before making of himself a criminal to be removed ...

Obama shouldn’t be wasting his time making empty statements now, he should be doing everything possible to get our embassy personnel out of Cairo as quickly as possible.

The millions of Egyptians cheering Morsi’s overthrow must despise Obama for putting him into office, so everything should be done to protect our people.

The last thing we need is for another U.S. ambassador to go down Benghazi style and have to listen to Susan Rice lying her way through another full Ginzberg on the talk shows this Sunday.

Oh, so he reveres constitutions, does he? Funny-he considers ours an impediment. Or....perhaps it’s the image of a military removing a President that gives him a cold, creepy feeling? Hmmm.....It’s how people have removed unwanted ‘rulers’ for millennia.
