Lindsey Graham: US “blessing and Good Housekeeping Stamp of Approval” Keep Egypt on a Tight Leash

Senator Lindsey Graham of #SouthCarolina has #Egypt on a tight leash #Submarine @GrahamBlog

Senator Graham asserted that the USA’s “blessing and Good Housekeeping Stamp of Approval” were even more important to Egypt than the military aid the USA provides.

This is an excerpt from a question and answer session Senator Graham gave at the end of a talk in North Augusta, South Carolina on October 1, 2012. In the entire audio recording, this excerpt begins at 13:30 and ends at 18:29.

As an FYI, Amnesty International released a report October 2, 2012 detailing the human rights violations the Egyptian army committed since Husni Mubarak’s ouster. So US military aid to Egypt is hardly a gift to the Egyptian people.
