It’s obvious Obama has zero influence over Egypt, so why continue to give them $1.5 billion annually?

Update: There’s no question about it, what happened was a coup. The quicker they say it the better so we can finally cut off aid to one of the most ungrateful recipients of U.S. taxpayer dollars in the world.

The White House is taking its time to determine whether the overthrow of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was a coup because of the potential fallout from calling it one, press secretary Jay Carney said Monday.

“I’m being very clear with you … this is a complex and difficult issue with significant consequences,” Carney said during his daily briefing, the first since Egypt’s military ousted Morsi nearly a week ago. Calling the action a coup could cut off more than $1.5 billion in annual U.S. foreign aid for Egypt.
