U.S. to halt Egypt aid after coup, turmoil
CNN ^ | Oct 8, 2013 | Jjim Sciutto

The United States will cut off aid to Egypt in the wake of the July coup against President Mohamed Morsy and the turmoil that has followed, a U.S. official said Tuesday.

The Obama administration withheld some military aid to Egypt in August.

The U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the full suspension has been prompted by an "accumulation of events," including recent violence against protesters, dozens of whom were killed over the weekend.

I bet we’re still sending taxpayer’s money overseas (foreign aid) - that’s not stopping.

Clearly Obama's objective is weapons & aid for Al Qaeda.

What would happen to the POS's political career if we had a truly objective news media...

Egypt: More than 50 killed as Muslim Brotherhood protest on October war anniversary

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/egypt-more-than-50-killed-as-muslim-brotherhood-protest-on-october-war-anniversary-8862676.html

“At least 51 people were killed when supporters of toppled President Mohamed Morsi used the revered anniversary of Egypt’s last war with Israel to stage one of their biggest protests since the state-led summer crackdowns against the country’s Islamists.

Tens of thousands of protesters marched through central Cairo to demand the reinstatement of Mr Morsi, triggering clashes with both the police and rival demonstrators who turned out to celebrate the military.”

BINGO!!!!! Team Barry must've found out that nearly all of the Muslim Brotherhood's bank accounts have been seized by the good guys. No way for King Barry to get the money to the bad guys.

Also, I want proof that the Blind Sheik is STILL in U.S. custody. Anyone?

MB = al Qaeda and Nazis.

THE USA is supporting al Qaeda and the Nazis.
Fits right in with supporting al Qaeda in Syria,
and and al Qaeda in Libya
culminating in the the Clinton-Huma MANPAD xfer
and the White House’s Ambassador rape-tape.

The ineligible POTUS is actively engaged in using AMERICAN taxpayer dollars to establish a new musselman caliphate.

Impeachable yes, but he understands the fatal flaw in the US Constitution

A political class unwilling to police itself for fear of losing individual office means an usurper is free to do his damage without fear of reprisal.

If he undermines the military, that region is up for grabs in short order.

Obama is failed Carter policy on steroids.

Carter destabilized the area around Iran. Obama will have the whole Middle-East and Northern Africa bubbling over by the time he leaves office.

What a ginormous ass-hat this guy is.

He thinks he’s the smartest guy in any room he enters. He is dangerously ignorant.

Putin has been waiting for the moment to move back into Egypt as their protector. This is it!

There can be no doubt that Obama is reacting as a child because the Muslim Brotherhood has been outlawed in Egypt. Those are his boys - the ME, that is!!

“Give the money to Israel.”

Fat chance. This is Obama we are talking about, remember? He loathes Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood are his sympatico’s. And no one should think Obama naive. Never naive. Planned socialist agenda, that is what describes him.

Yippy.

Does that mean that we can use the billion dollars not spent on these America hating banshees to reduce the $16 trillion debt?

Naaaah.

We need it for food stamps and free contraception.

LOL!!! True.

The POTUS is doing the EXACT OPPOSITE of what he should be doing. This makes no sense, Egypt as a somewhat reliable ally will now leave the US sphere of influence and turn to the Russkies, circa pre 1977.

Egypt is fighting America's enemies. The US is cutting off support after 35 years?? All that because the poor diddums are outlawing the MB?
The MB KILLED SADAT for crissakes!

America once again, put all her eggs into one basket. Billions in military hardware invested there and now? Too bad they didn't give all that stuff to a responsible and stable country that is truly loyal to the US - ISRAEL. Does anybody get this?

Egypt now has more critical ties with Israel clandestinely that at any point since their bilateral-relations.

Obama is throwing a monkey-wrench into the works of the entire region. Carter on steroids, indeed!

They keep using that word, “coup.” I do not think it means what they think it means.

Coup: “A sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.” What the people of Egypt did was not “illegal,” it was the will of the vast majority of the people, “democracy” in action.

Yep, we agree here.

Nobody is as smart as a Leftist who is convinced how smart he is.

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

[by “anti-government activists” is meant church-burning jihadists]
