Patrick Leahy opposes U.S. military aid to Egypt


Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations and President pro tempore of the Senate, said he was strongly opposed to the delivery of $ 650 million in military aid to Egypt.

For the Vermont Democratic Senator, the Obama administration can not support a regime that overthrew an elected president and sentenced to death officials of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Although Senator Leahy is quite alone in this position, his role in the Senate should enable him to delay or even block delay or block his country’s aid to Egypt.

The Egyptian government is supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia.
