Allah Akbar!Egypt receives $1.5 billion in annual U.S. aid.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee:
"Our law is clear: U.S. aid is cut off when a democratically elected government is deposed by military coup or decree. As we work on the new budget, my committee also will review future aid to the Egyptian government as we wait for a clearer picture." Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee
Yet Republicans are urging Obama to ignore the law and continue aid.
"Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn, Senate Foreign Relations Commtittee, urges the administration to "look at the regional picture with our vital national security interests in mind" as it reviews U.S. aid." So much for the anti-foreign aid stance of Republicans.
