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