Should the U.S. cut off aid to Egypt?

Wolf Blitzer asks two top diplomats, former State Department press secretary P.J. Crowley and former Middle East negotiator Aaron David Miller, if the United States should ends its annual $1.6 billion-dollar military aid package to Egypt after the recent surge in violence.

    America is giving military aid to Egypt as part of a mutual interest deal. Egypt will get this money replaced by maybe Russia and/or Saudi. But US will loose strategic allie in this part of the world. Yes go ahead , we the Egyptian people will prevail against the Muslim brotherhood who is a terrorist organization. Obama; stop supporting your own enemies. May our lord Jesus Christ bless Egypt.

    By All Means...Yes ! Cut off aid to the whole middle east immediately , give Israel a year or two so they can find jobs. They aren't producing terrorists, so lets go ahead and reward them with some aid. First we need to take care of our veterans and are own people Americans, they've had a horrible time since Bush and Cheney took office. Twelve years of hell right here in the USA. Time to go after the offshore tax havens and white collar crime.

    Wolf:
    This is what I mean! You ask a dumb question regarding aid to Egypt? I know that you know: American only gives Egypt $1.3 billion dollars in aid to this country. And that several Middle East countries have given Egypt well over $25 billion dollars just in the past six months? So why would the Egyptian generals care what we do? STOP asking dumb questions! Three countries have given Egypt $10 billion dollars just in the past six weeks..
