White House resumes aid to Egypt, walks back on earlier pledge
The US will resume military aid to Egypt despite earlier statements saying the US would halt aid as a result of the country’s violent military coup. Via The Washington Post, this is who your money is going to in case you were wondering:
Since the coup that ousted President Mohamed Morsi last year, Egypt’s military-backed government has orchestrated a brutal crackdown on the Morsi-allied Muslim Brotherhood and its political wing. Egypt also has imprisoned hundreds of secular activists. And it has detained journalists from Al Jazeera on charges that the television network and press-freedom activists call unfounded.
