White House: no immediate cut in U.S. aid to Egypt

Washington (CNN)-- When is a coup not a coup?

According to White House spokesman Jay Carney, when it is an "incredibly complex and difficult situation" involving key Middle East player Egypt that requires more time to figure out what response would be in the best interest of the United States as well as promoting democracy in Egypt.

Carney came under tough questioning on Monday from White House reporters about last week's ousting of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy by the military, which also threw out the constitution.

U.S. law restricts providing aid in instances of a military coup and some in Congress, including Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, already have called for halting the more than $1 billion a year currently given to Egypt.

---However, I still don't like that McCain

McCain is as goofy as Mark Dayton. Only leaders are Putin an Jessie Ventura.
After 9/11 Ventura called citzens to the State Capital and made a statement for the nation. All other states cowered in their basements like Mark Dayton.
Obama won't cut anything going to a Mooslim nation. And generally won't act decisively unless his basketball picks are at stake or maybe a vacation or fundraiser.
What language are you trying to communicate in?
