Comment of Senator Patrick Leahy On The Actions Taken Against NGOs In Egypt

"It's another jarring and disappointing turn for the worse.  Egypt's military rulers risk breaking faith with the people and interrupting the transition they had promised. This will invite condemnation from inside and outside of Egypt, as it should.  Actions like these are another reason why my appropriations sub-committee refused to give a blank check of foreign aid to the Egyptian military."
