As I have said since the Egyptian Revolution, the United States supports a set of core principles, including opposition to violence, protection of universal human rights, and reform that meets the legitimate aspirations of the people. The United States does not support particular individuals or political parties, but we are committed to the democratic process and respect for the rule of law. Since the current unrest in Egypt began, we have called on all parties to work together to address the legitimate grievances of the Egyptian people, in accordance with the democratic process, and without recourse to violence or the use of force.
The United States is monitoring the very fluid situation in Egypt, and we believe that ultimately the future of Egypt can only be determined by the Egyptian people. Nevertheless, we are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsy and suspend the Egyptian constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsy and his supporters. Given today’s developments, I have also directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications under U.S. law for our assistance to the Government of Egypt.
The United States continues to believe firmly that the best foundation for lasting stability in Egypt is a democratic political order with participation from all sides and all political parties —secular and religious, civilian and military. During this uncertain period, we expect the military to ensure that the rights of all Egyptian men and women are protected, including the right to peaceful assembly, due process, and free and fair trials in civilian courts. Moreover, the goal of any political process should be a government that respects the rights of all people, majority and minority; that institutionalizes the checks and balances upon which democracy depends; and that places the interests of the people above party or faction. The voices of all those who have protested peacefully must be heard – including those who welcomed today’s developments, and those who have supported President Morsy. In the interim, I urge all sides to avoid violence and come together to ensure the lasting restoration of Egypt’s democracy.
No transition to democracy comes without difficulty, but in the end it must stay true to the will of the people. An honest, capable and representative government is what ordinary Egyptians seek and what they deserve. The longstanding partnership between the United States and Egypt is based on shared interests and values, and we will continue to work with the Egyptian people to ensure that Egypt’s transition to democracy succeeds.
I believe he is seeing the writing on the wall and knows that his time in office might change with just a little organization. We can also get out the vote for 2014 and 2016 and turn this train wreck he has created to a government that is back on course!
BUT did he ask for the F-15s and the money he gave them back? That's really all I want to hear from him.
WE THE PEOPLE HERE IN THE USA NEED TO USE EGYPT'S BLUEPRINT FOR OUR WHITE HOUSE, PEACEFULLY AND END UP WITH A NEW LEADER.
We should be the next people kicking off the WH to the Kenyan dictator...
He caused this mess in Egypt and the rest of the Muslim world followed his ideas. Now they are in chaos and hating America for allowing their countries to be over taken by tyrants. All these people dying and being slaughtered is his fault. He started this Arab Spring by enticing Muslims around the world to unit under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood. I hope he is monitoring these web sites through the NSA. If he is, LISTEN YOU IDIOT OF A PRESIDENT, If it happened in Egypt, then it can happen here.
Absolute hypocrite! Where is his respect for the political minority in this country? Where is his protection of the rights of whites in this country? Where is his respect for this nation's checks and balances "upon which democracy DEPENDS"? Unbelievable that he can so easily spout ideals that he so vigorously opposes for so many Americans.
God is answering our prayers.
