RUSH: The Middle East, folks. This is being mismanaged so amazingly. We are in the midst of a genuine potential powder keg taking place over there, and it’s all happening because of the rabid incompetence of the leadership of this country. I have a series of stories. First off from The Daily Beast, of all places. I have to point out, this is sort of an interesting twist on the Limbaugh Theorem.
“Senator: Obama Administration Secretly Suspended Military Aid to Egypt — The US government has decided privately to act as if the military takeover of Egypt was a coup, temporarily suspending most forms of military aid, despite deciding not to announce publicly a coup determination one way or the other, according to a leading US senator.”
The Senator is Patrick “Leaky” Leahy, known for leaking, Senator Depends, our pet nickname for him. “The office of Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), the head of the appropriations state and foreign-operations subcommittee, told The Daily Beast on Monday that military aid to Egypt has been temporarily cut off. Leahy’s ‘understanding is that aid to the Egyptian military has been halted, as required by law.'”
