U.S. “Meddling” in Egypt?
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?
