Kerry Yachts as Egypt Burns
We expect them to care about foreign policy? Please, the only thing they care about is furthering their power.
Check it out:
As the Egyptian military effectively declared a coup, overthrowing the elected government of repressive Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi, Secretary of State John Kerry was busy … sailing his yacht. According to CBS producer Mosheh Oinounou, Kerry was on the “Isabel” on Wednesday afternoon. Oinounou said that when another CBS producer yelled “Morsi!” to Kerry, she received no response.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration struggled to come up with a coherent strategy to deal with the Egyptian military’s move. President Obama released a statement on Morsi’s ouster, suggesting that his administration “does not support particular individuals or political parties, but we are committed to the democratic process and respect for the law.” With those principles in mind, Obama declared himself “deeply concerned” and called for a transition to civilian rule. He refused to state whether the United States would withdraw aid to Egypt, saying only that he had directed a comprehensive review process.
