This is Obama’s ‘Shah’ moment for sure. Like the feckless Jimmy Carter who turned his back on the Shah of Iran, Obama turns his back on the president of Egypt, as he did with the real protestors for democratic change in Iran over a year ago. KGS
NOTE: Obama defies both the US Constitution and Federal law at home, so why not dictators and authoritarians abroad?
Egyptian Officials: Obama Contradicts Himself
Arutz 7: Egyptian officials on Wednesday night criticized the administration of U.S. President Barack H. Obama, accusing him of contradicting himself. The officials said that the U.S. had asked that a transitional government be installed in Egypt to replace President Hosni Mubarak – while at the same time demanding that he resign immediately. “The two things are contradictory,” an Egyptian official was quoted as saying by news agencies. “A transition takes time, but Obama tells Mubarak t quit immediately.”
On Wednesday, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said that the transition in Egypt must begin immediately. “Now means now,” Gibbs said, adding that future U.S. aid to Egypt was in the balance.
