U.S. To Continue Aid To Egypt After NGO Crackdown
Although the cases against U.S. democracy promoters in Egypt are not fully resolved, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has decided she won't withhold aid to the country. Senator Patrick Leahy, who placed conditions on the $1.3 billion the U.S. gives to the Egyptian military each year, is disappointed. He says the U-S is sending the wrong message. U.S. officials defend the move, saying they need partners in Egypt.
