The Wrong Decision on Egypt

With all eyes on Iran, few noticed the Obama Administration’s move to restore military aid to Egypt. This was a bad call, and a major blow to both human rights and stability in that country.

Charles Dunne, a retired diplomat who served in the U.S. Embassy in Cairo from 1999–2002, is a senior nonresident fellow with Freedom House and was convicted in Egypt in a 2013 “foreign funding” case against nongovernmental organizations. David J. Kramer is senior director for human rights and democracy at the McCain Institute and former president of Freedom House.
