Egypt Opposition Blames U.S. for Supporting Morsi Regime

An Egyptian opposition group accused the US of “being partner to a conspiracy to keep President Mohamed Morsi in power.”

Obama addressed the situation in Egypt on Saturday explaining “The United States supported democracy in Egypt. It’s been challenging given there has not been a tradition of democracy in Egypt.” he said. “Our most immediate concerns have to do with our embassies and consulates.”

In June, the Secretary of State John Kerry quietly gave $1.3 billion in military aid to Egypt. The money was given a month after a memo admitted “we are not satisfied with the extent of Egypt’s progress and are pressing for a more inclusive democratic process and the strengthening of key democratic institutions.”

The opposition is furious. “America and the Brotherhood have united to bring down the Egyptian people,” said Hassan Shahin, a member of the Tamarod, or “rebel,” movement.

In 2011, the US had dropped its support of Mubarak, instead supporting a movement toward “democracy.”
