US has lavished at least $66 billion on Egypt army but pretends it has no influence

Six weeks after the military coup that deposed a democratically elected government in Egypt, the US trained generals have unleashed the full fury of their armed forces on the Morsi supporters who have been demonstrating in the streets.

Marwan Bishara called the Americans on their rampant hypocrisy in an op-ed at Al Jazeera today. That's nice, but where American hypocrisy needs to be called is in the pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post.

America's acolytes in Cairo are now slaughtering their own people, which is an accusation oft leveled at supposed enemies of the US when the hypocrites in Washington are trying to rally support for interventions in Libya or Syria.

So where is the outrage today?
