US Sending 20 F-16s To Egypt

In yet another attempt by the United States to buy friends, we are sending Egypt 20 F-16s as a part of a $1 billion aid deal. A deal that was made in 2010 before Hosni Mubarak was overthrown.

Despite Mohamed Morsi, the former head of the Islamic Brotherhood before being “elected” “president” of Egypt, attempting to grab dictatorial powers last month, and now pushing through a new Egyptian constitution that would strictly enforce Islamic Shariah law, there have not even been any threats to cut military aid. He has also proclaimed the right to send tanks against anyone who opposes him, and the right to call in the military to arrest protesters without charges.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla) criticized U.S. military aid to Egypt saying, “The Obama administration wants to simply throw money at an Egyptian government that the president cannot even clearly state is an ally of the United States.”

It’s now known that weapons sent to Egypt in 2010 found their way into terrorist hands in Libya before the Benghazi attacks. Does Obama not know this, or does he just not care? What do you think?
