On Thursday President Obama called Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President, Morsi. He didn’t call to scold Morsi for his insufferable power grab. He didn’t call to correct Morsi for taking over the judicary, and ignoring the minority voice by implementing Sharia Law despite the opposition coalition.
Obama didn’t call Morsi to reprimand him for brutalizing freedom principles. No, instead he called to tell Morsi the street protests don’t look good, and are fodder for ridicule toward the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.
So what does Morsi do TODAY do in response to Obama’s concerns?
Struggling to subdue continuing street protests, the government of President Mohamed Morsi has approved legislation reimposing martial law by calling on the armed forces to keep order and authorizing soldiers to arrest civilians, Egypt’s state media reported on Saturday. (link)
