U.S. Thickens the Plot In Egypt

Here's the bottom-line for you:
Kay Granger, Congresswoman chairs the US House appropriations committee -- they're the ones that decide who gets what foreign aid, when. Anyway, she has warned the Egyptians that if they break the 30-year old treaty with Israel, the aid will stop.

It appears from what I also read, that the aid will slow down in inverse relation to the role the Muslim Brotherhood plays in Egypt after their elections.

Now, isn't that all so very nice. Oh, and did I tell you that Granger is a Republican from Texas. So what is the real position of the U.S. and who gets to call the shots on it? Who knows these days. Certainly Obama is not doing very much of any successful calling of any shots -- including his latest attempt to call for a "peaceful transition of power" in Libya earlier today. But that's another story.

Back to Egypt -- first, Obama tells us not to worry about the Muslim Brotherhood's role in Egypt. Now, a chair of the foreign aid committee tells us the amount of aid Egypt gets does depend on the Muslim Brotherhood inversely.

We'll leave it to you and time to untangle this web for us that has been woven due to a lack of a plan one can stick to when it comes to foreign policy, especially when dealing with a terrorist ideology that has as its goal to "wipe you of the face of the earth".
