US Egypt Aid Dilemma
FILE - In this July 26, 2013, file photo supporters of Egypt's top military officer, Gen. Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi, march over a bridge leading to Tahrir Square in Cairo after the ouster of democratically elected Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. 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 determination of whether a coup d’etat has occurred has been blurred by the Obama administration’s decision this week that it need not apply the law that requires it. That novel interpretation of the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act would probably come as a surprise to juntas and militaries in Mali, Madagascar, Honduras and Pakistan: all of which, among others, have had U.S. aid suspended over the past decade or so because of coups.
