Are we to condemn ElBaradei for this apparent hypocrisy, or commend him for his altruism in becoming involved in a process for the greater good of the country that he would otherwise reject?

Cairo is abuzz with talk of "dispersals" of the two long-running sit-ins by supporters of deposed president Morsi. Many expected the police to clear the protests today but so far they remain.

Violating the Law to Subsidize Egypt's Coup: Bipartisan Foolishness in Washington

Doug Bandow | Posted 10.12.2013 | Politics

U.S. policy in Egypt has been a disaster. Now the short-lived democratic revolution has been replaced by military rule with a meaningless civilian veneer. Washington should cut off foreign aid and disengage.

In the liberal/progressive reaches where principle matters most, there has been confusion over which principles take priority, mixed in with a profound misunderstanding (sometimes willful) of Egypt's political reality.

Turkey's Egyptian Overtures: Why Does Erdogan Care?

Somdeep Sen | Posted 10.08.2013 | World

The Gezi Park protests have not only collated the oppositions' sentiments that have aggregated since Erdogan took office in 2003, but also rendered his status as the unequivocal leader of all of Turkey as an empty shell.

It Was a Coup. Is a Junta next?

Richard Klass | Posted 10.08.2013 | Politics
Richard Klass

The U.S. leverage in Egypt is not great, but it is not nothing. The U.S. needs to work with our allies to it make clear that a repeat of 1954 when a military coup led to a junta ruling Egypt for nearly six decades is not acceptable.

Egypt: Clueless and Rudderless

Parvez Ahmed

In 2011, along with millions of people around the world, I was mesmerized by the peaceful popular uprisings in Tahrir Square that eventually led to the end of three decades of dictatorial rule in Egypt. Two years ago, the millions on the street inspired hope. Today they evoke fear.

Kick Egypt Off the Foreign Aid Dole: Americans Shouldn't Subsidize the Praetorian Military or Muslim Brotherhood

Doug Bandow | Posted 10.02.2013 | Politics

Washington's best hope is to disengage, leaving Egyptians to decide their own future. The administration should simply point to the law. A coup has occurred and the democratic process has been overthrown by the military, so aid must be halted.
