This is one of those statements that says a lot while saying nothing. It is an anodyne statement that is meant to appeal to all sides without condemning anyone.
The major mistake was even mentioning US aid. Given todays developments, I have also directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications under U.S. law for our assistance to the Government of Egypt.
It is a ham-handed approach that didn't need to be made public. It will not be well-received by any of the parties.
