Foreign Assistance Act was signed in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy:
Section 508 of the decades-old Foreign Assistance Act stipulates that “none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available pursuant to this Act shall be obligated or expended to finance directly any assistance to any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by a military coup or decree.”
This means, according to the Foreign Assistance Act, the toppling of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government by the military requires the U.S. to cut off it’s $1.5 billion annual aid to the country.
It can’t be any clearer. Obama and Congress MUST stop providing aid to Egypt. A democratically elected government was deposed by a military coup. But we all know that Obama and Congress follow whatever laws they choose to follow and ignore them when convenient. The same idiots who pompously exhort that Edward Snowden has broken laws will ignore this law because they didn’t like Morsi. The hypocrisy is so deep you need to wear boots.
But don’t worry. Everything is under control in Egypt. Only 35 people killed and 1,000 wounded during the celebrations.
