US Ineptitude On Egypt Highlights America’s Liberty Hypocrisy
In Egypt, a democratically-elected government has been overthrown in a military coup d’etat, and though the U.S. government is required by its own law to withdraw support from Egypt, it does nothing. How could the United States lead a credible international protest against the power grab by Egypt’s military, though, when right here in the United States, the Obama Administration has allowed military spy chiefs at the National Security Agency to violate people’s constitutional rights, turning America into a surveillance state?
Also in Egypt, the military government is now preparing to break up anti-government sit-in protests, saying that protest is an unacceptable threat to national security. How could the United States credibly speak out against the crackdown, though, when right here in the United States, the Obama Administration coordinated efforts of local police departments across the country to break up protests by the Occupy movement?
The Obama Administration’s opposition to expressions of liberty here in the United States has weakened the leadership of the United States of America around the world.
