Stepahanopoulos: Egypt a case study in U.S. impotence

On the August 18 airing of This Week with George Stephanopoulos host George Stepahanopoulos said the crisis in Egypt has been “a case study in U.S. impotence.”

He said this crisis has been “unfolding for months.” That when the Muslim Brotherhood was in control the U.S. “[pressed] them to open up” but they did not. Then, when the military came in “[President Obama] [condemned] the crackdown” but “that [made] no difference either.”

ABC’s Martha Raddatz said, “We seem to have absolutely no leverage in Egypt. We have seen no change, [and regardless of what] the U.S. asks for, nothing happens.”

She also pointed to Obama’s refusal to halt aid to Egypt as one more sign the U.S. has “no plan” guiding the moves our president is taking.
