The very smart Jews-run white house Egypt ouster coup or no coup. Let the Egyptians fight over it while the Jews and Israel enjoy seeing them fight over it and seeing bloods in the streets. Anyone has no doubt why the Jews are God chosen people. Sorry for the joke.

A coup determination would force the administration to cut military aid to vital Mideast ally

U.S. has urged quick return to civilian rule
Obama administration has delayed delivery of fighter jets to Egypt
Washington (CNN) -- The Obama administration will not make a formal determination as to whether the ouster of Egypt's president by the military was a coup, a senior administration official told CNN's Jill Dougherty.
A coup determination would force the United States to end military aid to Egypt.
"The law does not require us to make a formal determination as to whether a coup took place and it is not in our national interest to make such a determination," the official said.
The administration sees continuing aid to Egypt -- more than $1 billion annually -- to be "consistent with our law" and necessary to further U.S. national security interests, the source added.
Mohamed Morsy, Egypt's first democratically elected president, was pushed out July 3 following mass protests over his leadership and suspended the constitution.
On Wednesday, the Pentagon announced it was delaying sending four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt. The four aircraft were due to be by the end of August as part of larger $1.3 billion arms sales package signed in 2010 that included additional F-16s and some Abrams tank parts.
The delay was seen as a signal to the Egyptian military that the United States was unhappy with the pace of transition back to a civilian government.
