John McCain calls for suspension of US aid to Egypt following overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood leadership.
Muslim Brotherhood supporters murder local youths in Alexandria by tossing them off the roof.
Republican Senator John McCain called for a suspension of U.S. military aid to Egypt after the army ouster of Islamist president Mohammed Mursi, breaking with the official position in Washington.
“I’ve thought long and hard about this, but I believe that we have to suspend the aid to the Egyptian military, because the Egyptian military has overturned the vote of the people of Egypt,” McCain said Friday evening at a press conference in his home state of Arizona.
“We cannot repeat the same mistakes we made at other times in our history by supporting the removal of freely elected governments,” the 2008 presidential candidate said.
