U.S. Meddling in Foreign Nations?

U.S. “Meddling” in Egypt?
P. Schultz
January 26, 2012

“Egypt’s ruling military council, in turn, has been suggesting for months that the United States may have been financing nonprofit human-rights groups and democracy-building groups with an agenda to destabilize Egypt, part of a growing drumbeat of anti-Americanism that has emanated from the military-led government. The generals have often sought to blame outbursts of violence in the streets on such foreign interference.” New York Times, January 26, 2012, page 1.

Gee, I wonder where the Egyptians ever got the impression that the United States would meddle in their domestic affairs, even to the point of fomenting public unrest? Let me see: Iran, Iraq, Vietnam, Cuba, Guatemala, El Salvador, Chile, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Pakistan…..did I miss any?
