Finally we have an editorial,The Post’s View: Egypt’s military should hear from Obama administration, which demands that the Obama Administration also pressures the military. Let’s be frank: the Egyptian army did a great service not just to Egypt’s people but also to the U.S. government because it saved its strategic balance in the Middle East.
Only one op-ed piece, Jackson Diehl: “Egypt’s ‘democrats’ abandon democracy,” pointed out a rather salient issue. The moderates themselves stopped supporting the status quo and begged for a coup! They support the government now! They want the Obama Administration to back the military regime! Good grief.
