WASHINGTON President Barack Obama urged Egypt's military Wednesday to hand back control to a democratic, civilian government without delay, but stopped short of calling the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi a coup d'etat.

In a carefully worded statement, Obama said he was "deeply concerned" by the military's move to topple Morsi's government and suspend Egypt's constitution. He said he was ordering the U.S. government to assess what the military's actions meant for U.S. foreign aid to Egypt -- $1.5 billion a year in military and economic assistance.

I now call (to)...return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process

First time I have ever agreed with this putz, as I too want to see a return of a democratically elected......... Egypt?

I thought he was talking about the USA.

I am incensed that we have transitioned from a love and devotion of freedom, to that of democracy. Too bad the GOP sucks so much at promoting freedom.

He admits it was for our future enemy and not the people of Egypt?
Leading from behind.

I suppose the POS is worried that Egypt might actually become a friendly nation again. Couldn’t give aid to a country like that.

Is the current $1.5 Billion going to the Muslim Brotherhood, or the actual people of Egypt? Taking that away from the alleged corrupt Morsi regime might not be a bad thing for the new government.

It takes a special diplomatic finesse to manage to alienate both sides at the same time.

Well, I will give him this - he is consistent.

He is an enemy of freedom anywhere.

Dear Lord, give us the strength to see this through.

Projection. The poseur obama is putting himself in Morsi’s place and is dreading that the same thing might happen to him. If only...

In other words, Obama’s man was defeated.
