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.

Awww. What’s the matter? No terrorists in the government anymore, Barry?
So, why were we giving them our hard earned tax-conficated/borrowed from China in the first place?
Just set up Putin to be Egypt's new best FRiend.
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.
May have been his goal.
I suppose the POS is worried that Egypt might actually become a friendly nation again. Couldn’t give aid to a country like that.
Its all for show.
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.

What a piece of socialist, muslim crap!
The answer for any country is self-sufficiency. The US should butt out and get concerned about the invaders who have just about destroyed the US.
My “leading from behind” keys are all worn.
Looks to me that the Egyptian people have b*lls enough to work hard, create their own wealth, and manage their own affairs without any assistance from us.
Time for Barry and all the other pols to stop giving away the store in exchange for whatever goodies they derive from it.
BS! IMHO Morsi was to back US interests in Syria.
Morsi role at Syria rally seen as tipping point for Egypt army
Morsi himself called for foreign intervention in Syria against Assad, leading to a veiled rebuke from the army, which issued a bland but sharp-edged statement the next day stressing that its only role was guarding Egypts borders

Kerrys Secret Gift to Egypt
Jun 6, 2013 4:21 PM EDT
Last month John Kerry quietly approved huge arms shipments to Egyptdespite Cairos ongoing violation of human rights. Josh Rogin reports.
While employees of American NGOs sat in Egyptian prisons, Secretary of State John Kerry quietly waived the law that would prevent the U.S. from sending the Egyptian military $1.3 billion worth of weapons this year.
Egypts Morsi behind murder of U.S. ambassador?
Intel fingers Muslim Brotherhood in deadly Benghazi attack
0’s just mad that they’re removing one of his Muslim Brotherhood buddy’s recent conquests. The Egyptians had to learn the hard way that Islam is a religion of hate and oppression.
Never heard him threaten Egypt with cutting off funding when Murbarak
was still Predident.
Did he donate the money to the RAT Party?
Obama is a fool a dangerous one.
In Chicago politics, there is always a kick back somewhere.
Just like Egypt, we have a Constitution too but that doesn't mean our President is honoring it. He unilaterally overturns and suspends Federal Laws to win elections. We should learn from how Egypt is remedying their problem.
Barry is picking up his marbles and going home to pout.
Anyone think obamas call to review military aid might be if the egyptian military when they rolled out the armor today used obamas last gift to morsy of the new M1 Abrams ?
is Syria put on the back burner now
I wonder how the Israeli press is reporting all this. It would be interesting.

——————————————————————————————Indeed. If only...
The master of petulance.
I wonder if he will give that money back to the Pentagon now to stop the furlough of civilian nurses and doctors at Walter Reed?
Obama’s Muslim Bortherhood puppet didn’t last long. Barry has a cow.
Aid to Egypt ends because a statute says no aid can be sent to them if there is a military coup. This is the best of all things. The Coptic and secular non throat cutting islamist now rule AND WE DON”T HAVE TO SEND $1.8 BILLION of printed money a year and we can use that money to send National Guard to the mexican border!!
The problem with the GOP is that they think their version of freedom is better than the Rat version of freedom. We do not get our freedoms from government. The only thing government can do is restrict, mold, morph, and change the definition of freedom. We need less government. That will yield more freedom.
“that the same thing might happen to him. “
I see a couple of differences:
Their young folks are not sucking on the welfare teat, are not distracted by facebook and TMZ, etc. They are aware of their govt. situation.
Their military hasn’t been gay’ed, and its patriotic leaders haven’t been compromised, fired, blackmailed, such as ours have.
Review the aid as he has the Keystone pipeline—take years.
Obama’s ego is too big for him to realize that the Egyptian military used the Muslim Brotherhood to get rid of Mubarak, who was setting his family up to rule For at least another generation.
A decent interval has passed and that same military no longer has any use for Morsi. If they had left Morsi alone much longer he’d have gotten rid of the next echelon of officers and the Army would have been neutered. So they had to move and move quickly.
Hmmmph.....can't understand at all why Obama is "deeply concerned."
Today ... The Syrian government... has urged President Morsi to step down in line with his peoples wishes. “
what the military did in Eqypt is the best thing to happen to that country in a year. Every day Obama exposes more and more what a radical scum he is.
“You will do what I tell you to do for the money I pay you”.
Evidently the Egyptians have declined the invitation to be Obama’s whore.
