Subject: re: With Washington’s Complicity, Egypt Cracks Down on Critics
To the Editor:
It cannot be enough that the United States "support[s] the protection of individual rights for Egyptians". By our own statute, the coup that toppled Mohamed Morsi in 2013 should have triggered the immediate end of military aid to Egypt.
As long as we demur to enforce our own law, the world sees that we underwrite the repression and violations of Egyptians' rights. Rather than the beacon of liberty, we have made ourselves the ally of convenient strongmen and the target of revolutionaries around the world.
