To the Editor:
     General el-Sisi goes on imprisoning, shooting and torturing dissidents secure in the knowledge that the U.S. government approves. If we did not, we would long ago have cut off aid as our law (22 U.S. Code § 8422 - Authorization of assistance) requires.
   All that is required is that our department of State call his coup a "coup". That would immediately trigger the cut-off of $billions that we continue to meekly pump into his illegitimate repressive government. Find out who promised him that we would wink at his coup and you'll find the underwriter of his crimes.
