Obama admin backs homicidal junta

"When I give food to the poor, I'm called a saint. When I ask why they are poor, I'm called a communist." -Archbishop Dom Helder Camara. This essay is part of an occasional feature on this blog that presents compelling stories from elsewhere in the world, particularly Africa, that are little reported in the American media. It's part of my campaign to get people to realize there is a lot going on in the world outside the US, IsraelStine and the Trumped Up Enemy of the Month. A list of all pieces in this series can be found found here..

In an Orwellian twist worthy of anything Donald Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney said, Secretary of State John Kerry has stated that the Egyptian military was merely 'restoring democracy' when it overthrew the democratically-elected president.

There you have it, folks. Your Nobel Peace-prize winning president and his administration is backing thugs who murder peaceful protesters... and doing so with your tax money.
