Your Bill: $1.3 Billion

The events in Egypt are deplorable... but apparently not deplorable enough to cut off aid or call it a coup.

The US government refused to announce a cut off in the Egyptian military's $1.3 billion annual subsidy, and continually urged restraint and reconciliation.

The State Department on whether or not it was a coup:

"We have determined that we do not need to make a determination,"  ~ Jen Psaki

Today after the crackdown and the appointment of 19 Generals as Provincial Governors,  White House spokesman Josh Earnest said:

"The US is not ready to determine whether Egypt has had a military coup ."

So Josh,  perhaps you can enlighten us... when will you be ready to call it a coup?

Secretary of State Kerry was quoted as saying:

"Blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Policy?  Our policy is to have no policy.
