Obama Arms Egypt with F16 Fighters

Obama Arms Egypt with F16 Fighters

It was widely reported in early December that Obama was going to send F16 fighters to Egypt. From Investors:

Why is the U.S. sending 20 advanced fighter jets to an Egypt that's now the giant question mark of the Middle East? President Obama is appeasing jihadists — and possibly signing Israel's death warrant.

When President Obama early in his presidency went to Cairo to apologize to the Muslim world, he made a point of saying "there are some who advocate for democracy only when they're out of power; once in power, they are ruthless in suppressing the rights of others."

but now this is starting to get traction. From Breitbart:

On Thursday Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX) criticized the Obama administration for sending twenty F-16 fighter jets to the new Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Egyptian government.

"It is reckless and unwise for the U.S. to give F-16s to Egypt and its new president/dictator, controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood," Poe explained. "This extremist group is notoriously anti-American and anti-Israel. The United States should not be arming a country ruled by a group that has the destruction of Israel in its charter."

Steve commented:

I think this is one of the worst things a president has ever done.

The worst thing a president has ever done? Well, Bill Clinton giving the Chinese our missile secrets for campaign contributions was pretty dang bad as well.
