US Egypt Aid Dilemma
FILE - In this July 26, 2013, file photo opponents of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi wave Egyptian flags and hold a poster depicting Egypt's top general, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, while another holds an modified image of President Barack Obama, showing him bearded and turbaned, as they chant slogans during near the presidential palace in Cairo. For decades, foreign armies that receive U.S. assistance have been on notice that toppling their freely elected civilian leaders will have penalties. After Egypt, no more. The Obama administration’s decision to selectively apply what had been a hallmark of U.S. support for democracy would seem to raise questions about its stated unwavering commitment to that ideal. The Arabic on the poster at left says, "You will and remain the best of all soldiers." The one that center reads, "Barakah al-Hussein Abu Amamah." (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar, File)
