The acts of the last few days by the Egyptian military are completely unconscionable and I do believe we have to change our aid. I think also we have to have included in the legislation a national security waiver because we have to give the president not only the responsibility to deal with the government of Egypt but also flexibility.
Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) • Discussing the idea of cutting U.S. aid to the Egyptian government in the wake of this week’s political unrest in the country. He’s not alone; Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) has also suggested cutting aid, while Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) is in favor of recalibrating it.

Violence outside. Violence soon to be inside: Moments after this photo, taken from inside a mosque in Cairo, was taken, stun grenades were thrown inside by military officials, and Islamists inside were forced out. Outside was another kind of violent scene, with Islamists and journalists alike facing danger from a violent crowd and military forces. Above, the military believed gunmen were firing from the mosque’s minaret, leading the tanks to return fire. Once soldiers got inside, more violent incidents—between the Morsi supporters and the military—took place. Much credit to the photographer, who risked his own safety to take a shot like this.
